As usual everything was delicious and our friends, who were there for the first time,
It was good choice to be there for 10th Anniversary with kids. Waiters/servers were all nice and kind. All foods and drinks were delicious. We’d love to come back soon.
It was very annoying that they wouldn’t allow any substitutions. Anything different you request it was an additional charge. Very overpriced restaurant. The Pomodoro sauce was the worst I have ever, Overpowered by the basement. I will not be returning
Marginal at best. Food was nothing great. Wouldn't return. I'd expect to pay probably 60% of what their prices are for the quality of their food. All 4 diners in our group agreed.
Wonderful food!! Authentic Italian. The owner and service is awesome. Never miss coming here when in Palm Desert. The veal dishes are the best!!!!
Great food, great service. Best eggplant Parmesan I’ve ever had.
Mimmo's is the kind of Italian food that my mother used to make.
The food is old world Italian.
Everything is good! It is prepared with the proper ingredients and there is no skimping in the execution of this great Italian restaurant.
I have eaten here more than a dozen times, and I have never been disappointed.
The spaghetti bolognese with peas is wonderful as is the Osso Bucho.
The service is good and attentive.
Fabulous delicious dinner and excellent staff
The service was exceptional, the food was incredible and I can not say enough good things about our fantastic dinner.
Second time at Mimmo's, both times the food and service were excellent. A family run Italian restaurant that knows how to treat it's customers. An excellent value for a top notch dining experience. Our server gave was knowledgeable and gave us several recommendations off of the wine list. Limoncello was homemade and wonderfully refreshing. Cheesecake is a family recipe and is to die for! Love, Love, Love Mimmo's! Can't wait to go back.
Tried this on a recommendation from TripAdvisor. Moderate prices and good food, but the star here is the service. Our server was a pro. He did a wonderful job of explaining our choices, answering questions and made excellent recommendations based on what we told him we liked. We brought in two bottles of our own special wine and he did an excellent job opening and serving the wine (no glass stayed empty for long). Super attentive, yet not intrusive at all. I'd go back just for the great service.
Simply said, awesome. Food and service was outstanding. VERY knowledgeable staff. They are on top of their game.
Wonderful meal and our waiter was knowledgeable and kind.
My husband and I were really looking forward to dining at Mimmo's. First of all, the restaurant was disappointing in the fact that it was so chopped up with a little dining room here, another one there, and virtually NO atmosphere other than looking at a wall or other diners! Then, our waiter, Rob, seemed to be disengaged acting a little annoyed, like he wanted to be somewhere else. I had a glass of Cabernet one of only two wines in the Cab category that were offered by the glass, as I recall. The menu was quite pedestrian, nothing noteworthy. My husband ordered the filet mignon. His two side choices were polenta or roasted potatoes and glazed carrots or broccoli. He asked if he could substitute a pasta side for the polenta or potatoes. He was told, sorry, no substitutions. So, in addition to the roasted potatoes and carrots he ordered a small side of pasta for an additional $6. Ridiculous! It's an Italian restaurant for heaven's sake! They should have been happy to accommodate him! I ordered the salmon and carrots which were delicious and the polenta which was absolutely tasteless! Also, a caesar salad. The caesar salad was NOTHING special at all, but Mimmo's felt it was worth $8.50! NEVER AGAIN! I'm glad we went, but will never go back and I will be honest with anyone who asks my opinion of Mimmo's! There are WAY too many wonderful Italian restaurants in the Coachella Valley to put up with a restaurant who puts on their menu - No Substitutions! Overall, very disappointing!
I highly recommend Mimmo’s. Generous Cocktails, great food.
Great place to enjoy Italian cuisine.
This was our first time here after a recommendation from a local resident. The Service was phenomenal. The Server was very knowledgeable about the menu and specials. He also made excellent recommendations. The veal and gnocchi entrees were prepared perfectly with sizeable portions. This was just a really pleasant and relaxed dinner. We will be back to Mimmo's in the near future.
The food and service were good enough but items on the menu were way overpriced! Much better value at other Italian restaurants in the Coachella Valley - Desert Cities region. I won’t be coming back.
Was our first time there with my Family so I can only answer my experience....they all loved their food, our waiter was great, he answered a lot of questions but I did't get his name...I would actually recommend for everything even though I haven't gotten to experience all. We will definitely be dining with you again.
Great food and service.
Our second time here, came back for the excellent Italian food. Pesto sauce is out of this world and the Gnocchi is to die for. Caprese salad was yummy and the tapenade will have us coming back again and again. Wine selection is good and prices are decent.
Wonderful fare and service ... as always! Couldn’t have been a better dining experience
Came here for a birthday dinner and was blown away by the food! The fish strew was incredible, so was the clams linguini in white wine sauce! The service was excellent as well! Will come back to try more dishes!
Mimmo’s was highly recommended by a friend who is also a Personal Chef. It did not disappoint. Delicious, authentic Italian food and an attentive wait staff.
Food was good, although I felt was a little over priced. Not much for Ambiance e, due for a facelift , it's aging like am.
We were made to feel welcome from the moment we stepped inside. Ushered to a quaint table and immediately attended to by staff. Cocktails to start were excellent. Shared the Mimmo’s meatballs to start and the were delicious with a hint of sausage dressed with a fresh tomato marinara. The chicken piccata was good. The pasta special with pancetta, peas and mushrooms in a light cream sauce was very good. Joined with a very nice glass of Barolo. Chocolate mousse and coffee to finish the meal.
Service was very good however our waiter seemed a bit dismissive - like he had other things to do. Overall a very enjoyable experience.
All 4 of us enjoyed our dinners. Service was efficient and friendly!
Staff was very friendly and considerate. Food was excellent. Portions were generous and very tasty and the pasta was fresh.
Service excellent; food marginal.
Italian dishes are not like it used to be when the owner was doing the cooking.
Excellent service and food. We have never been disappointed!
This was our first visit to Mimmo's... We were pleasantly surprised by how wonderful the food was... There were so many choices of food that sounded outstanding that it was difficult to decide. However, we went with the Osso Bucco special, which was delicious. We will definitely return... It is our new favorite Italian restaurant!
Very friendly and attentive staff. Our server was excellent. Octopus and Polenta appetizers were delish. Main courses very good (I had the veal scallopini) and dessert - Tiramisu- really great. Affordable and a great value too
The waitstaff was knowledgable about the menu and knowing that we were headed for the theater, he kept us informed about the progress of the meal and made sure we had everything on time. We have tried many of the Italian restaurants in Pal Desert and this is among the best.
Good food good service
Food and service was very good. It is a small place so chatter was a little loud that evening because it was a full house. Wait staff was very attentive. Food was nicely presented and tasted like authentic Italian.
Good Food, Great Service.
arrived 30 min before closing, but our party of 5 was greeted with warmth and enthusiasm. every suggestion from the waiter was spit on and the entrees were all delicious! we did not feel rushed and thoroughly enjoyed our evening.
Everything we ordered was delicious and reasonably priced.
Once again Mimmo's has more than met our high expectations. For six years we have dined there and have always been so happy to have gone there. The food is superb, the atmosphere warm and cozy, the service above and beyond -- they even moved our table when we requested . We will continue to go back again and again.
