We are open! Come and join us and check out our beautiful new bar and dining area.
The foundation of good Italian cooking is the freshest of ingredients prepared with simplicity, bringing together flavors so no one ingredient overpowers another. Mimmo’s Italian roots begin in his hometown of Bagheria, Sicily. The fresh fruits and vegetables picked from his family’s farm were on the table, or tavola, that night. Our logo of the lemon and lemon flower, or zagara, is a symbol of Sicily’s rich history of growing and exporting lemons, and a reminder of Mimmo’s many memories of lemon picking in his grandfather’s groves. APRIL 30TH 2012 WAS OUR OPENING DAY.
OUR HOURS ARE: MONDAY THRU SATURDAY FROM 5PM. HAPPY HOUR IS MONDAY THRU FRIDAY FROM 5PM TO CLOSE, AT THE BAR. WE WILL BE CLOSED THE MONTH OF AUGUST

    I would prefer to have a salad or soup included with main entree, especially when main course is well over $20, it’s a nice touch and makes you feel special. Really what is extra cost for soup or salad… 50 cents?

    Our service at Mimmo’s was outstanding. I only had spaghetti with marinara but the others in our party had things that weren’t so basic and thought the food was outstanding.

    Our server made no effort to engage, he seemed to operate on autopilot. The food was good but the special veal chop was not worth twice the price of the Saltimbocca dish which was quite a bit more appetizing. Our waiter did not mention the unusually high price for the special. We were happy with our selection from their limited wine list. I don’t imagine we will return.

    The service was great and timely. We ordered two entrees, one was really good the other was just ok. You need to watch the cost. They changed $8 to add cheese to one entree, that seemed rather pricey.

    Mediocre. We received a warm welcome from the host and then very little interaction with our server who showed no signs of personality or hospitality. He did tell us which specials were available and offer more drinks, but that was it. Main courses were acceptable, gelato was excellent. We were keen to leave.

    Our disappointment came with the bill. We ordered one of the specials - and unfortunately did not ask the price. Because it was a special we thought it would be a little higher than many of the main menu items- we did not expect it to be twice as much as the most expensive item on the menu!

    Very nice assortment on the menu. I had a pasta with shrimp and scallops in a saffron sauce that was delicious. All my table mates were very pleased with their choices. We have dined here at least three times over the past years and the food and service are consistently very good.

    We had not been to Mimmo’s for some time and brought some friends with us for dinner. Service was great! Three of our foursome ordered the Linguine all’Isolana, it was hit! We will definitely return and recommend it highly.

    Veal was excellent. I’m German and Italian and the gnocchi was more like a heavy German dumpling than a light Italian gnocchi. The vodka sauce was thick and heavy where as I prefer a light creamy sauce. The carrot cake was delicious.

    I took some friends from out of town to Mimmo’s and it was our first time there. Very nice restaurant, attentive servers. I think that the portions were very small for the price, however. The food was very good, but it wasn’t any better than any other Italian restaurant in this area and it was definitely on the pricey side, so probably will not go back.

    When we ask locals about their favorite Italian restaurant here in the Valley, Mimmo's is not often the answer. We do not understand. We have now been to all of the others, regardless of cost, and Mimmo's remains our favorite. A predictably excellent meal and excellent service in a comfortable setting.

    Our server totally screwed up our order. Two of 4 entrees were correct Three were actually served and it was a 10 minute wait for the forth. He forgot to put it in with the original order I wasn’t offered cheese for my pasta and nobody ever came around to ask if everything was ok We will give it another try because the food is very good

    Calamari was very nice. The special burrata with heirloom was delicious. Bread service was not Italian and also came after the appetizer. Bread was served with olive oil and basil pesto. Main courses were Osso Bucco with risotto and Veal Marsala with carrots and broccoli. Osso Bucco was very dry, risotto very al dente. Carrots and broccoli are also hard and veal sauce is very gooey. Martini was good and house wine was good. Overall 3.5

    Unfortunately, the linguini diavolo was not as spicy as suited my taste. The linguini vongola was quite blah without spice at all.. pasta over done and lacked flavor. The host/owner was most gracious and forgiving of unflavored dishes. We would return for another chance at the table!

    We have visited Mimmo’s every time we come out to Palm Desert- probably 20 times . This was the worse experience. We were rushed with ordering and service - out in 80 minutes, Our food was cold and you could tell 2 of the 4 entrees sat under a heat lamp. The marnina tasted old and starchy. And the wine pours was dismally small. It might have been our last time which is sad as we always looked forward to eating here. I didn’t see the owners so maybe they is why the whole experience was awful??

    Service was great. Our waiter gave great advice, friendly service and was prompt at all levels. The burrata caprese was the highlight. Bean soup was watery and lacked flavor beyond on spice that permeated every bite. Chicken parm was soggy and, again, lacked flavor. Penne with vodka - same problem. It had also hardened and coagulated before being brought to our table so it was a hard block of noodles. The meatballs were tiny and tasted like the frozen ones you get at the grocery store. Shrimp scampi was decent and the flavor was close to what you’d expect from that simple dish. Ambiance and noise level were fine. Service was great. But, the food left our group feeling like we overpaid and wouldn’t go back.
