Nice little italian restaurant. You'll eat directly in the stove, quite original. Pastas are great. You can try this place once in your life. Only problem is that they don't accept credit cards, ger some cash before.

Very nice, little Italian spot tucked in a tiny pocket on Rue du Chapeau Rouge. Pasta is brought out hot in the pan with large servings - excellent. Pizzas are crisp and delicious. The small interior and exterior patio are intimate but quite relaxed overall and boisterous. Patrons seem to come for the night, so hang out and enjoy yourself.... More

My wife and I heard about this little gem in Avignon from our concierge at Hotel De Europe and boy he got it right, it was amazing! Chef Mimmo surprised us with dish after dish of mouth watering delight! Being Italian spending lots of time in Italy with my family (all self proclaimed chefs) we have become spoiled. But .....Mimmo... More

Incredible pizza, pasta and eggplant.Very cheap also. A server was a little rude to my mother which I didn't appreciate but i overlooked this because of the food.

We were in the mood for Italian, and found this place through TA. It is quite good. I had the arrabiata which was surprisingly angry for France. When my wife ordered it as well, but the waitress helped her lighten it up spice-wise, so she could eat it. I love the way they serve the pasta in the pans they... More

Cute little Italian restaurant hidden in the heart of Avignon. Must try their arribiatta pasta, like no other! Such wonderful owners. Felt like home.

We ate at Chez Mimo on our second night in Avignon. We eat really good Italian food at home all the time and both my husband and I thought this was stellar! The ingredients were fresh and delicious. We ordered the tomato mozzarella to start and shared a veggie pizza and pasta. They serve the pasta in a sauce pan... More

The pizza was delicious. The tiramisu was homemade and amazing. The place was lively with a great ambiance. Definitely get there early as it was really crowded by 8pm. The service was really nice. I definitely recommend it.

We've been in Avignon a few days now and have been disappointed to say the least with the restaurants. That was until we ate at Chez Mimo! I had the tomato pasta with cream, it was wonderful! The pasta was al dente, and the sauce was to die for! I ate every last bite! My friend had the calzone and... More

My husband and I had a hankering for pizza (a break from delicious French food) and saw this on Trip Advisor. The actual name on the restaurant is CHEZ MIMMO, which you can see by the picture attached. We're so glad we got there right as they opened because about 1/2 hour into service, the tables were almost full and... More
