Mimmo's Italian Restaurant
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.

Wonderful experience. Excellent food & service!
Everything was awesome!
Our server was fantastic. Great attention was given.
Ok food. Not exceptional.
excellent service and very good food. Will definitly return when back in the valley.
There were four of us. We sat outside in the seating area they established in the parking lot. (They really put one effort into elevating it so it’s not like tailgating in a parking lot.). Service was wonderful- very friendly and pleasant. The food was excellent. I especially liked the crispy polenta with mushroom sauce. The eggplant was delicious, and the so was the catch of the day. It’s top of my list for dining out in Palm Desert.
I had to mark it down on ambience because of the patio seating, but that's because of stupid CoVid-19. Otherwise, it was really good.
Great authentic, home cooked italian food. Very much recommended.
If the restaurant ever opens up indoor seating, it's usually quiet, with dining outside the noise level is up a bit but not bad. Everything else is outstanding. This was our 2nd dinner at Mimmo's. Will return again!
Food was delicious ! Minnie serves a variety of traditional and innovative Italian dishes. We enjoyed the Cesar salad and the Mediterranean sea bass and crab stuffed raviolis . All delicious . Other times we have tried the veal . Excellent!
This is always one of my very favorite go to Italian restaurants. The wait staff is always super friendly, and we always enjoy Ruben! The food was wonderful, as always, the only fault of the evening was having to ask three different people before finally getting the garlic bread that we had ordered, before our meals were consumed.
BEST "uptown" Italian food in the Coachella Valley at very reasonable prices. Seriously, the food was a 10. The service from Claude was, as always, professional, fun and pleasant. They have lots of outdoor seating. Full bar, great wine list. I used to live in Manhattan where there is some of the greatest Italian food. Did I mentioned they even make their own Burrata cheese? This is JUST AS WONDERFUL. Check it out!
One of our favorite restaurants in Palm Springs area. Consistently good Italian food
Claude our server made us feel like we were in Italy! He was amazing!!
Food was amazing. Brought my husband for his birthday and he absolutely loved it. He loves Italian food and this hit the spot!! Will definitely be coming back to Mimmos!!!
Due to COVID, we had outdoor dining. Their outdoor dining is widely spread out. They had their own patio, and went into the street. so getting a server was a little hard if you’re sitting in the street. We finally asked to be moved out of the street..and service was better.
We've been coming to Mimmo's for a number of years now when we are vacationing. The quality of the food and service is outstanding. ESPECIALLY when they have their fresh Burrata available. We think it's a hidden gem. When we talk to Valley residents, they say they've never heard of Mimmo's. Each one who tried it, loved it. Enough said. This should be a regular stop on your culinary list of "go-to's" in Coachella Valley.
considering it was a makeshift patio for Covid requirements, it was quite pleasant. The food was great...lots to choose from on the menu as well as some specials. We would definitely go back.
Except for outdoor dinning (on the noisy street) the dinner was superb!
excellent service and food.
We had another fabulous meal! We make this a go to when we travel to the desert. We’ll be back again after Christmas!
Our waiter, Raul, was AMAZING!!
It’s our first time to have dinner in this Italian Restaurant and we were so happy with the choices of food, they are all delicious. I enjoyed my Caesar’s salad and seafood pasta. The services is excellent. We. Will surely come back for sure.
Given the pandemic...we could not eat inside in the main dining room, but we all made it work on the open air inside patio. We felt very safe. Server was friendly and attentive.
Food was delicious. We will definitely go back.
Incredible meal. It was above and beyond the experience we were expecting and can’t wait to dine here again.
Wonderful way to celebrate. Dinner was nice to sit outside. Will return.
Re-opened, Mimmo's hasn't lost a beat. Same wonderful food and excellent service.
The new outdoor dining area is in the parking lot, with HiWay 111 about 80 feet away, so not the lovely, quiet decor inside, but it works just fine, with white tablecloths no less.
So glad they are back !
Food was delicious, very fresh and we’ll prepared.
It was our first time at Mimmos’s and we enjoyed everything! We had a three course dinner and every course was delicious! We finished off with Mimmo’s carrot cake and creme brulee for desert and everything was so good we left every plate clean! Definitely returning!
We have traveled to Italy several times and have had the opportunity to experience authentic delicious homemade Italian cuisine. Based on the good reviews this restaurant had Open Table we were excited to try it. Unfortunately, the food was terrible and the service was just as bad. I have had better Italian food at a farm to table restaurant than at this establishment. The garlic toast was hard as a rock and lacked garlic flavor. The cheese that was melted in top was disintegrated. Out of 4 meals we were served the only meal that was good was the spaghetti and meatballs. With respect to the service, it took over an hour for our appetizers and another 30 minutes for our meals to be served. The server who was non existent for most of the meal couldn’t even be bothered to tell us about dessert and referred us to the menu which didn’t even contain all of the desserts. We overheard another sever beside us explaining them to his table. If I could rate this restaurant with a negative I would certainly do it. We left hungry after spending $165 and this was without drinks. PLEASE SAVE YOUR MONEY AND GO TO A GOOD ITALIAN RESTAURANT.
When we visit from LA we always eat at Mimmo’s. The service is warm and friendly and the food is excellent. Highly recommend!
Another very nice meal at Mimmo’s. We had Vongole and a special pasta with veal and mushrooms. Excellent and their service is always attentive and professional. It’s a favorite Italian restaurant in the desert.
It was a lovely evening. We sat outside. My food was just like my mother made it. Delicious. Reuben, our waiter was wonderful. Wish I could take him to all my restaurants.
I would only recommend Mimmo's if you like good food, excellent service and an enjoyable meal out. Every aspect of my recent dining experience there was superb. Being treated like a loved family member doesn't hurt either!
Excellent food--very consistent. Been going there for years.
We always enjoy dining here. Food is excellent, service was very good. Enjoy introducing our friends to it who have never been there. They all have loved it.
First time. Great food. Too bad restaurants are closed now. Hope to go back before we leave this area otherwise will definitely go back when we return.
LOVE this restaurant! It never disappoints!
The restaurant was traditional Italian food. It was very cozy and friendly. We enjoyed the focaccia bread. The beet burrata salad was excellent. I really enjoyed Branzino was perfect. My husband thought the sole was a little tough. We had a very nice evening.
We were really looking forward to our meals as past dinners here have been very good, however this was an off day. We both ordered two of the specials for the night. Both lacked the great flavors we had experienced in the past and were quite bland. My spaghetti carbonara was very bland. The pancetta which normally brings live to the dish had very little flavor this night. Although disappointed this time, we will try again as our past experiences have been quite good.
We read the menu online and chose the restaurant. I am so happy we did! This place is amazing. I will return if I am back in the area. It was authentic Italian food with amazing service! The wine list was very good, too.
