We are open! Come and join us and check out our beautiful new bar and dining area.
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.
APRIL 30TH 2022 IS OUR 10TH ANNIVERSARY! COME IN AND ENJOY A GLASS OF PROSECCO ON US TO CELEBRATE THIS MILESTONE.

    A few locals tried to convince us to go elsewhere but we stuck with our plans. Mimmo’s did not disappoint. We shared the veal scallopine, the wedge salad and the special bruschetta. It was all wonderful!

    Chicken Scalapini Marsala was perfection. The Chicken Parmigiano preparation is not ideal as the chicken comes out a bit rubbery, though was assured it is not pre-cooked. Broccoli was overcooked though asked it to be "threatened not cooked". Service was excellent. Mimmo is on-site and warm and welcoming.

    I don't understand why they offer...mashed potatoes,Broccoli or carrots with most of their meals..no Substitutions..This is an Italian restaurant..We Split the Lasagne which was good..This order didn't come with extras which was good. Split fee was $6.00..Our waiter kept trying to up sell us....The restaurant had a nice Atmosphäre.

    We shared the Burrata special and a Caesar salad to start. They were both delicious. We both order the Crab Raviolis, which were also good. We shared a bottle of Nipozzano Chianti and also enjoyed their bread and olive tapenda. It was a lovely dining experience!

    They added a surcharge onto the bill of 3%. Not a good idea. The wedge salad for $10.90 was so small. Very disappointing.

    Although I have enjoyed this restaurant many times this experience was, as a whole, terrible. Our waiter was mostly absent which required actually getting up from the table to find him. The servers did not serve the plates or fill our drinks smoothly. We placed our orders, I ordered the special of the night which was osso buco. Some time later the waiter came back and said they were out of osso buco and had been since the PREVIOUS NIGHT! So much for it being the special of the night! I changed my order to the butternut squash ravioli. We were a party of 6 and 5 entrees came out at once and the 6th entrée was so delayed that the 5 previous entrees got cold during the wait. The pasta with seafood in white sauce and the butternut squash ravioli dishes were bland, and the pasta felt like it had been sitting out for a while, a little dry or tough. The butternut squash which was supposed to be served in a brown butter sauce was actually served in a thick, cheesy sauce. The waiter comped desserts for the delay in the final dish, which, if that had been the only transgression, would have saved the night. But, with the poor service, absent waiter, any the special that had not been available to anyone that night even though it was offered it was just not enough to save the night. It was a failure of front of house and back of house. This was a business dinner and I could tell my guests were not enjoying their meals. I was embarrassed. My husband and I agreed as we walked out the door that we would not be giving Mimmo's another try any time soon.

    Our server Timothy R was attentive but difficult to understand. The food was excellent, especially the house bean soup. The sides including the orzo and Mimmo's carrots were great also. The restaurant was busy for early November in Palm Desert.

    This was some of the worst service we have ever experienced. Huge delays in getting both appetizers and dinner. One couple was seated and had complete dinner and done before we were served the appetizers. Worst part about this: the waiter didn’t seem to care. We have always enjoyed Mimmo’s in the past but tonight might have us rethink about going here in the future.

    Slow to be greeted at table. Took a while to just get menus. Specials were told when the waiter came to take our orders instead of when he dropped off the menu. Food was okay, even though they got the order wrong. Food wasn’t hot. My guess is they were understaffed. The polenta was great, but the eggplant parm was mediocre. The prices were way to high for the food and service we received.

    We ordered ravioli which we were told was “homemade”. It came lukewarm. Our server took it back and brought back another plate, a bit warmer. The ravioli tasted very doughy and rather tasteless. We were totally disappointed with the dish. We would not recommend this restaurant to anyone.

    First time dining, sat on the "modern side". Everyone we encountered was very friendly and service was great. I get the same cocktail everywhere I go, this one was fair. The chicken parm was good, didn't love the sauce and it needs more cheese on top. I would come back at some point.
