Description: 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!

“Mimi's Italian Grill - Affordable, great food & terrific service.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

Affordable, great food & terrific service. May not be on the main stream in Kelwona although it should be! We had to meet the Chef (Anita) as the food was delicately presented to us & served with a great enthusiastic flare (Thanks Kera)! This is an affordable restaurant with dishes to please all! A family could dine choosing a main course from a number of options...seafood to pizza. Don't miss this one on your tour of the finest City in Canada...Kelowna, BC

“Somewhat disappointing :(”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

I felt a bit like we were riding an experience roller coaster; some great high points, but also low ones. Overall, value for dollar is questionable for me. Service was friendly, but slow. Pasta was good but very expensive. Wine selections excellent, and the mussels fabulous. Patio dining was a nice option, and inside decor is lovely. Would I dine there, again? Not sure. I'd try some other restaurants first. Sorry, Mimi - one thumb up only, and it's not quite sure if it should stay up!

“Love everything about Mimi's . . . . .”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

My first experience at Mimi's was a birthday dinner for 10 ladies, we picked Mimi's for the Gluten free choices - we all ordered different meals & we were very pleased with our meals, service & prices. I've been back a few times since in the last month, once for dinner & once for lunch - always impressed with the food. Tyler has been our server twice and he gave us just the right amount of attention - we also found Tyler to be very knowledgeable with wine pairing and explaining the menu.

“Mimi's a Winner”

Found Mimi's by accident last night. The food was awesome. Loved the gluten free pizza and the Mediterranean fries. Thanks Kera for the terrific service. This place is definitely a keeper.

“Head here for a fun evening!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

Have been to Mimi's several times now, always with a large group. Their service has been absolutely perfect (they usually give our table of 8-10 people at least two servers) and the food is absolutely delicious. In a group of 8-10, to have everyone raving over their food is quite a feat!
I really like the fact that they have lots of gluten-free options, including gluten-free pasta so that you can have just about any pasta dish with no gluten - and it's so well done, you can't even tell the difference!
Add to this the upscale modern ambience and perfect lighting (not too bright, not too dark) and you have the makings of a perfect evening.
I will definitely return again!
