“Great location, great food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2014

Everything about this place was great! The service was outstanding and the pizza was wonderful! Destin needed a better Italian restaurant, and they finally have one. :)

“Worth the wait”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2014

Walked in and got seated immediately. Took a while for waitress to come to table. I don't think they are to fond of kids. Ordered our food and took over 45 minutes for our food. But once we got our food, portions were huge and definitely the best I ever had!!!!

“Favorite meal in Destin”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2014

OMG! The food here was AMAZING! I have traveled all over the country and I can say that this was probably THE BEST Italian food I have ever had. The bread was delicious, with perfect texture. The garlic knots: so buttery and cheesy. We had a party of 10 and every single person raved about their dish. Linguine with white clam sauce.... Heaven. I would have eaten it for dessert too! Pizzas are large- be warned, but fantastic brick oven crusts! I will stop now, but don't miss this gem!

“We were so disappointed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2014

We had such a disappointing visit to Mimmo's this week. I had read the reviews and was expecting spectacular food and service. The location itself is surprisingly nice since it is in a strip mall. Our initial service was good; seating, drinks, bread; all came quickly. However, once we ordered things went downhill. We were seated for 45 minutes and failed to receive any food. A couple who came in 20 minutes after us had food and were eating away. My husband called the manager over and our food was delivered shortly after. The comment from our waitress was that "she put the order in". The food was only mediocre and very disappointing after such a long wait. We were not offered any compensation for the delay. However, as we were leaving we were given a piece of tiramisu to go. This is not the kind of service we expected after reading the reviews. Something obviously happened to our order and the restaurant did not adequately recognize and compensate us for the delay. Won't go back.
