You know Mimi.Mimi’s the one who invites you over, makes you glad you came the moment you arrive, and hopes you came hungry.Mimi’s food has a big Italian heart and you’re going to love it -it’s simple, playful and satisfying: pastas of all kinds, from old-country spaghettis to fresh ravioli, made by hand and filled with love. Meats and fish grilled simply, from the heart. Pizzas, thin and crisp with happiness. Salads composed with a generous Italian hand. And wine, lots of good wine.Cheerfully served and deliciously affordable, Mimi’s is colour, warmth and energy, inspired by the Mediterranean in all of us and by families and friends who share good times, eat with gusto and are always happy to see you.Ciao!

It's closed

This was a decent but pricey Italian restaurant. It is now closed however. The space is for lease. Maybe another restaurant will open here as it is right on the main street downtown. Not far from the lake and beach etc.

We did not have pizza which some friends of ours had and did not like. We had the chicken marsala and spinach salad. Both were wonderful--great flavor and service was attentive.

The food was above average but the service was some of the poorest we have experienced in years. We had a reservation for our group of 12. The restaurant called to ask us to come later to avoid two large groups arriving together. We did that. In all we were at the table for over 2 hours before our main... More

I complained to the bartender, who then asked someone to attend to us. the waitress took our drink order finally. We watched our drink order sit on the bar for ten minutes Finally we asked... More

If this is Italian food, I am from the moon. The place looks good but the rest is just garbage. We were planning to have a great night, and we got all the opposite. At least we drank beers, but to drink, a bar or a nightclub is a better option.

The food was over cooked, the wine was warm and the service was terrible. Definitely skip this one if you can.

We went here thinking it looked like a nice upmarket Italian restaurant, nothing to worry about. Lovely decor, nicely air conditioned, pretty sweet wine cellar etc. Sat down in a nice booth. It wasn't particularly busy & there seemed to be enough waiting staff on shift. It took 20 minutes for someone to take our drinks order... we were then... More

Coming from someone that has 14 years experience in the restaurant industry, this was not a good dinner experience. We were one of very few tables in the restaurant(6 adults, 1 child)my wife and I showed up with our child first and received menus. Shortly after the rest of our group showed up, I myself grabbed menus for them from... More

5 of us stopped by this restaurant to eat on a Saturday night. We arrived at around 5:15pm (quite early for dinner). We were hungry so we ordered right away. They only had 3 beers available (in bottles) and ran out of one of them. Our food took forever to show up!!!!.. 4 meals finally came out at 6:30pm. yes,... More

We were visiting from Scotland. I booked a table for me and 9 others for 7pm. I though that the restaurant would be busy because of nearby graduations, but it wasn't. Instead we were the only table in the house. Unfortuntalely we were told that we could only order off of one part of the menu because one of the... More
