Mimi's was at the end of the street our hotel was on so made it the perfect choice for an Italian meal during our vacation. The menu was varied but my wife and I made the correct choices. Veal for me and lasagne for her. Delicious!!!! Nice house wine too, attentive service and a knowledgeable maitre d / manager added... More

THis is the local Pizza and Sausage hero place. It has been around forever , changing hands aft leaf 5 times in the 18 years that have been here. We go occasionally and it is forever mobbed with doormen, kids after school, before school, commuters on the way home and families interested in a less expensive meal. Service is okay... More

Mimi's has a neighborhood feel to it. Good food and many choices, One special feature is the piano bar. Often on a Monday night, you'll be entertained by someone appearing in a Broadway show. That's New York for you.

We dined early so the piano playing mentioned in other posts was not there however our food and service was great. Loved the location to people with from our table. I... More

We were there last Sunday evening, and the place was hopping, with a funky senior citizen piano player, lots of good Christmas music and decorations and a number of lively diners who were happy to join in the festive mood. As to the food, it was good homemade Italian fare served promptly by an engaging waiter. The ambience was warm... More

A group of us went to Mimi's to celebrate with a friend on his 80th birthday. It was wonderful! The pianist played songs about and for him and everyone joined in, not just the birthday-party group. I can't recall seeing so many smiles and so much laughter! Go, enjoy.

Found Mimi's purely by accident. Wow. What a great little Italian place on 2nd Avenue at 52 that has great food, wonderful atmosphere, and attentive servers. NYC is full of Italian restaurants but this one is one of the best in my opinion. I'll be back.

This is a definite go-to if you like atmosphere and good Italian food...E 52nd and 1st. Our table was at a window...we people watched while nibbling on the warm bread. This restaurant isn't flashy, just comfortable and both romantic (tables for two) and family-oriented. Their piano player was talented, the hostess (I suspect she was the owner) friendly, and my...

Had a three course meal whilst visiting New York and alongside the great food, the pianist, singers and of course Mimi we had a fab time and I would say this place is well worth the visit if you find yourself near 52nd and 2nd.
