    Mimmo's is cute in that it mimics an Italian Village in a reasonably sincere way without going all Disneyland on you. Unfortunately, the food is just average. Given there are two dozen other Italian restaurants within a 5-minute walk, most of which serve more delicious food, we've decided it's too much of a gastronomic sacrifice to settle for the mediocre food in exchange for the ambience, even when entertaining out of town guests.

    The food was good and hot, which was necessary considering we had to sit outside. The waiter was excellent. However, your power tripping HOSTesses were terrible service. Not only were they not accomodating about moving our table, they were laughing and looked to be joking around that we were consistently requesting to move. We asked for the manager, who never came. Open table app has 2 options, standard and outdoor seating. If we wanted to eat outdoors on the street, we would've made that selection. However, we selected standard which according to hostesses is first avail inside or out. Then, what's the point in having an option. Coincidentally, every person after us went inside. Even though we had a person with disability that is further triggered with the cold, we had no choice but to stay where the power tripping hostess put us and quickly eat n run.

    Dinner for two, everything was fine. The food was very good, as well as the service. We had reservations but it would not be necessary on a Thursday evening in late February. We would eat here again in San Diego’s Little Italy.

    It is one of the best ones in Little italy. We love this place!!! Best campanelle sausage pasta ever! We always come back here..... We were here to celebrate our wedding anniversary, and our server brought us a dessert with a candle... She was so thoughtful, and the dessert looked so cute, and it was delicious (tiramisu). We definitely are coming back... we always do. Thank you, Mimmo's.

    What a treasure. Mimmo’s is such a charming, old style Italian restaurant in the heart of San Diego’s bustling Little Italy. Always packed, it offers both indoor and sidewalk dining in a quaint and cozy ambiance. Service is uncommonly friendly and talented, but Oh! The cuisine! Probably some of the most flavorful and delicious Italian cooking you’ve ever encountered, carefully prepared and artfully presented. Each bite an endlessly pleasing and enriching experience. Tomato Bisque was perfectly seasoned with just the right tanginess. Both the Chicken Parmesan and Eggplant Parmesan were exquisite, not even mentioning the soft, warm and delectable focaccia served with each meal. Not to be missed.

    Had reservations for indoors, still put me and my partner outside pinned between a bicycle sign and a heat post. Terrible service, and the food was that of a microwave meal. Shame they are acting like an upscale facility with all of these flaws.

    I chose the restaurant because the have clam’s linguini. My daughter loves them and the reviews were good. There were 4 of us and are meals were just ok. The clams weren’t great. The other meals were just fair. The service was very good. We got seated at a table way back in the corner and it felt a bit like Pirates of the Caribbean. I have eaten at other restaurants in Little Italy which were much better.

    It was chilly so we sat inside. Very nice waiter, Inglesas . Arancini were hot and delicious. Fried calamari was good but not even warm. I don’t like sending food back to the kitchen. ( it was happy hour , half price appetizers, wine and beer wear on special also) My autumn butternut squash soup was yummy. I ordered the pear salad also but never got it. ( was not charged for it) My husband had chicken parmigiana- hot & delicious. Dessert was yummy , cannoli and affogato . Would definitely come back .

    Very disappointed in the quality of food. Daughter had butternut squash ravioli - made her stomach hurt. I had capellini with sausage and vodka sauce. Very salty! Never had a caprese salad with peeled tomatoes. Stuffed mahi did have good flavor and baked macaroni just mediocre. Other places in little Italy that are much better.
