Dined at Mimmo's on a Friday evening in April. Extremely pleased with the service and food, which included a range of gluten-free pasta options for my wife. Highly recommended pick in Little Italy!

After a LONG day of travel (with many hurdles), we sat down to a mid-afternoon meal in the cozy Italian restaurant in San Diego's "Little Itally." I enjoy a large chunk of salmon together with mixed vegetables, mushroom sauce blended with rice risotto & a side salad of mixed greens topped with balsamic venigrette. Washed it all down with a...

Love this place! Super quaint restaurant with outdoor seating right in the middle of Little Italy. Wonderful place to walk around after dining. Food was sooo good! We had the meatballs and stuffed mushrooms as appetizers and lasagna, spaghetti carbonara, and mushroom ravioli for dinner. Portions were huge! Everything was delicious! Great wine list, too. Highly recommend! Our favorite meal... More

The portion size was perfect and the food was great. Whoever does the menu here does an excellent job as we looked at 2... More

This was a very nice surprise with the Eggplant Parmesan delicious and filled with mozzarella cheese and fresh tomatoes. The Tuscany salad was generous and easily shared with another. The location is in the heart of Little Italy and our server was a part of the original family that began the restaurant. There is a down home feeling and the... More
