We went about 5:30 and sat on the patio. It was nice being in the heart of the Italian Village and watching the people go by. The food and service was average at best. As expected it was a bit pricey for very average food . I was expecting something more authentic

So we didn't have a reservation and it was Friday night. We went early and were one of the first ones there. Nice selection of Italian wines by the glass. Decent bruschetta, serviceable pizza and pasta and a salad for my vegetarian daughter. Service was good, if not a little hover -y. (we were an early table and I am... More

We went down to Little Italy from the old town and chose this restaurant due to outdoor seating and half price bottle of wine offer. We had to wait for an already empty table to be cleared and set- ok a usual request, however this doesn't normally take 10 mins ( I could have done it myself in less than... More

Mimmo's offers a great value lunch special. Its combination of tasty food, friendly service, and attractive location made for a very pleasant meal. They also offer a 15% discount for patrons of the Old Town Trolley Tour making it a great mid-point.

Walking in Little Italy, we decided to try Mimmo's for a late lunch. Had the chicken parm which was excellent. Wasn't crowded at all, which was nice, too. Should be busier with good food like what we had.

Today, it was not on par with previous experiences. We have eaten here previously and truly loved it. So I'm hoping this was just an off day. I ordered the house merlot- it was super. I ordered the butternut squash risotto with fried shrimp and balsamic vinegar reduction. The risotto was good but tepid, the shrimp were overly cooked and... More

I really enjoyed my experience. Of course, the wine selection is awesome. I ordered blackened chicken fettuccine with spinach, minestrone soup, and a meatball. Everything was fresh and delicious.

Although it was only 6 PM, we could not get a table at the highly rated, but unbelievably noisy, Ironside restaurant. We had walked by Mimmo's earlier and were impressed by the white tablecloths, which few restaurants still use, so we walked back to Mimmo's for dinner. Inside, the restaurant opens up into a large hall which simulates the plaza... More

I was in San Diego on business and over the course of four days I ate here twice, which is a testament to how good the food is. The salads are fresh, bread is warm and seemingly right out the oven, and the food is reminiscent of my trip to Italy the previous year. The service is ok...not bad, not... More
