Enjoy our amazing food all homemade from scratch daily, using quality ingredients and fresh local produce .

Our popular dishes include, campanelle sausage, spicy shrimp linguine, and chicken parmesan. You can enjoy these dishes alongside a nice glass of wine or signature homemade sangria.

Mimmo's Italian Village was started by Vincenzo Mimmo Gaglio, originally from Montelepre, Sicily. Before arriving in San Diego, Gaglio sharpened his cooking skills in Tunisia, New York City, Ontario, California, and finally, San Diego.

Mimmo's seating areas consist of a charming indoor village, alfresco front and back patio seating.

Great service and the food was delicious. Well priced for what you get and we liked the option that you could get half sized pasta dishes for half the price of the full dish. Good sized portions and great atmosphere.

Food was good however service seemed scattered and the hostess wanted to seat us next to the bathroom and kitchen entrance. This part was kind of annoying.

Mimmo's - always GREAT! So glad to be back dining outside with great energy. We enjoyed the meatballs to start and then had various pasta dishes - the Campanelle is the absolute best - just the right amount of cream and spiciness!

Great food, great atmosphere. My only negative comment is about the women’s bathroom. There is a single toilet for the entire restaurant. There were 8 of us in a small hallway waiting for the restroom. We had to crowd in or be in the way of the take out area. The bathroom needs expanded and improved.

Great food, great service, nice to see restaurants open & busy! Good cleanliness standards.

The only downside is the amount of traffic on India St & the proximity of the seating - I could have opened car doors!

The food was good however the server got my order wrong. He was willing to correct it but I wanted to eat my dinner with my wife. It was her birthday. The restaurant did comp a fantastic dessert. To be sure I would eat here again. Just make sure your server knows your order.

My BF and I stayed at the Hilton around the corner for our weekend get away. I am soo glad we made reservations, we were able to be picked up and dropped off by LYFT right in front. We arrived 30min prior to our reservation, we were seated in a great spot on the ptatio. It’s not as loud as other locations, the staff was amazing and the food was incredible. The only thing was we had our phone on the table playing the Dodgers World Series game. But I loved it.

In short period of time we had appetizers and wine which was so good we went back the following week for dinner. The charcuterie board was one of the best and have had many. So full of goodies that waiter came over after we were enjoying it to make sure we saw all the chesses nuts etc under the first layer. We sat outside with the board some calamari
and a bottle of sauvignon blanc. Nice service never intrusive and we did not feel rushed.
Worth the drive from Oceanside.
Evening was pleasant outside so we ordered salad and two very flavorful pasta dishes with wine. Al dente as we desire it. Our waiter was so gracious that when we gave him our card and a cash tip he came back to our table and said you made a mistake it was too much. Indeed I had I thought it was a $20.00 but it was quite a bit more. That was a first. Very impressive!

Carol was our waitress and very attentive, but not overbearing. We started with a charcuterie board while sitting along the side walk and enjoying each other’s company and people watching. Dinner for my wife was spaghetti sauce with linguine noodles and sausage, my dinner was Chicken Parmesan. Both meals were excellent! Dessert was the chocolate lava cake and a cannoli (to go). My only complaint would be the flies I had to continuously swat away and the plant on the rail needed trimming so as not to grow onto the table. We will return.

Absolutely wonderful from start to finish. A moment to take my grandma mother and girlfriend out for a treat. Out door dinning experience was brilliant. Service was top notch and well tailored. Food was delightful, spectacular wine, food we couldn’t stop eating from entrée to desert. We will definitely be back.
