Mimmo's Italian Restaurant
WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU SOON!
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.

Calamari Sauteed with Marinara Sauce
We were there to celebrate mother’s birthday, and the experience was wonderful. The staff was attentive and professional, and really took good care of mom. We loved the food, especially the calamari!They sang happy birthday, and we had a nice chat with the owner, who is on site and hands-on. The ambience was somewhat challenged because of the street dining, but this will pass with the pandemic, and we would recommend this restaurant to everyone.
Good and service was great. Recommend . They offered a heater also for outdoor dining
We had a great evening with favourite wait staff. Everything was wonderful
Specials were overpriced and we were not told the price of the specials when they were offered.
Vegs with salmon were only ok.
Pasta special was good but overpriced.
We came here to celebrate my husband's birthday and were not disappointed. We had the pork loin and halibut, both off the Specials menu. The pork was moist and flavorful and the halibut was simply melt in your mouth (and no bones to pick out). My 4 year old enjoyed her spaghetti and sausage. There is a good choice of beer, wine and cocktails. Our server was attentive without being too intrusive and was very helpful in describing the menu items.
Dinner was great! Hot food served quickly and delicious!
Food and service were great! Would definitely go back.
Delightful! Dominic our waiter was especially attentive and made great suggestions. Food was fabulous.
Mimmos is one of our first “go to” restaurants when we arrive in the desert. They have made the best accommodations they can under the circumstances and the food is still exceptional. If available the burrito is a must!
Delicious food, excellent service — I highly recommend this wonderful restaurant.
All of the food we had was truly outstanding. Chicken piccata highly recmmended!
Mimmo's was really amazing considering we were there on Valentine's Day and they were packed. The food was fresh and delicious. Service was prompt and friendly even with a tired staff. So glad we were able to spend the evening there with a couple of friends who all had a great experience. Order the Linquine con Vongole!
Excellent food and service
Loved the food and service was good too. Best Italian restaurant in the desert.
Wow! Food was amazing! Sausage grilled! Fantastic! Vodka sauce was superb! Meatballs were small and perfect! Great dinner!
The food and service was excellent! The pandemic patio out front has a great view of the mountains and sunset.
Excellent food, no ambiance for a date but great Italian
Some of the best Italian food in the Palm Desert area. Outdoor dining for now.
We very much enjoyed our dinner at mimmo’s!! The food was delicious and our waiter, Reuben, was attentive and oh so personable!! We will definitely be visiting often.
The sauces at Mimmo's sets it apart from all other restaurants in the valley. It is so satisfying to eat at a family run restaurant when you are made to feel like you're part of the family and the family knows how to prepare delicious food!
They need to either lower their prices 15% or spend to funds to make it look better. People were fine.
Second time dining here and everything was outstanding as we remember from our first visit. Highly recommend
It was so lovely to eat AT a restaurant again. This was a wonderful experience. Everything we ordered was delicious!!
Fantastic, authentic Italian. Absolutely delicious. Wonderful service.
We had friendly efficient service and our waiter was very helpful making choices. Nice portions and delicious authentic Italian food. Osso buco was a special a it was exceptional tender and very tasty as well as the lasagne and calamari fritti also a special that evening. I have found my new favourite Italian restaurant. Of course with covid restrictions it’s not what it could be but they have done a great job under the circumstances. You can tell they care about their guests’ experience. Loved it ! Thank you
Excellent authentic italian restaurant in Palm Desert was so delightful. The servers were very attentive and the food was fabulous. The Calamari appetizer was incredible. No one else in the desert has a menu and quality of food that can compare.
Excellent all around, exceptional service
Great homemade pasta specials. The calamari appetizer and tagliattelle pasta are excellent. Servers are very attentive.
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.
