Mimmo's Italian Restaurant
Mon–Sat 5:00 pm–9:00 pm
Food and service always top scale. Mimo always is gracious and warming
Coming from Boston (Italian North End) to the desert we had minimal expectations for Italian Dining. Being Italian we have high standards for Italian food. Mimmo's exceeded our expectations. The meal started with burrata which was superb followed by my wife's selection of pork roast and my dinner spaghetti. The wine list is extensive and reasonably priced. We will be going back before we head for snow country.
Absolutely fabulous! My husband is EXTREMELY picky when it comes to his Chicken Parmesan...no one has been able to hold up to Dantana’s (West hollywood) until now...it was fabulous! He ordered a side of homemade meatballs and a spaghetti aglio e olio and it was one of the best we’ve ever had! I had the lasagna and thought it was fabulous! Definitely a MUST GO when in Palm Desert!
This place was amazing! The staff was attentive and friendly. The food was absolutely delicious! I will definitely come back and recommend to anyone!
food and service was excellent in a cozy environment. gives you the feeling of an authentic italian restaurant from days gone.....
My wife and I are regulars at Mimmo's and we always look forward to going because we always leave very satisfied and happy. It's an authentic, feel-good, friendly, classic Italian restaurant. It didn't take many visits for Nino to learn our favorite table and to tell us stories of growing up in the restaurant business. Every server and staff has taken great care to attend us well, to help make our evening fun, and yet not intrude on our enjoyment. Rob [or Roberto, as he agreed, with a smile, that we should call him] did just that for us on Wednesday night. Our party of three ordered the sole, the veal piccata, and the veal saltimbocca. My wife and I loved our dishes, loved the carrots and polenta sides, and the extra side order of pasta. Our guest, a 93-year old WWII vet said his meal was the best meal he's ever had, and he usually finds food to be unremarkable. A fabulous wedge salad, a savory sausage appetizer, and delicious bread got us started in grand style. And a little sambucca, a little amaretto, and a gelato dolce, with a biscotti treat, were the cappers for another great evening at Mimmo's. We, once again, look forward to our next meal at Mimmo's!
The ambiance, food and service was wonderful! The restaurant has an old world quality that is lacking in many other places. We enjoyed our evening very much.
Authentic and absolutely delicious Italian cuisine. Service was attentive but not intrusive. Host Nino (Mimmo's son) made sure our anniversary dinner had special touches. This is one of our go-to restaurants for special occasions. We always feel appreciated as customers, and in turn, we appreciate everything about the dining experiences we've had here.
Excellent service, delicious authentic food and reasonable pricing. We will return.
We celebrated our kids b days, my family is from Verona Italy and can be critical of authentic Italian dishes, no complaints and nothing left to take home , which is a good sign, we also had our 8 mo old granddaughter who ate her first polenta!! The service and ambience was perfect , so from 8 mo to 65 yes old our family had a super time! Thank you The Segala Family
Truly authentic Sicilian food made with good ingredients. Service is always excellent. Owner is on premises every time we have been there. We eat at Mimmo’s at least once every time we visit Destin.
My wife really enjoyed the sea bass special. I had the crab ravioli and there were no survivors. You can actually have a conversation without having to yell. The crème brulee finished off a very enjoyable evening. Our waiter Claude is the best. Very knowledgeable on wine selection.
Excellent food. Wonderful services. My friends and I want to go back again. Yummy! Yummy!
As always Mimmos was outstanding.....the food was wonderful, service impeccable and the atmosphere is always very enjoyable. We always make it a point of have dinner at Mimmos whenever we are in the desert.
Great food and service. We will be back.
Outstanding service and really good food. The service level was that of a 5star restaurant without the 5star price. Excellent assortment of fine wines and a full bar. Specifically, Nino the General Manager was warm and hospitable like he was inviting us into his home; very special. Thank you, Nino and your team for a really great evening. Cheers- Rob and Jeras
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.
