“Good food and fun at the beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Excellent Italian restaurant owned and operated by a real Italian character who greets you like an old friend. It's a rare BYOB in this area.

“Yummy garlic goodness”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

I agree with the previous reviews. This place has character. There is lots of garlic, great chef, great views and definitely be sure to bring your own wine. You can see surfers on the beach occasionally. It is an experience. Be sure to book your table.

“Unique, one of a kind!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

We've been here three times. Small place, low ceilings, and very noisy but fun! Each time was different, but extremely good. Mimmo himself recommended several dishes and each was superb. The mussels marinara are incredible, portions are huge. Every dish personnally made and delivered with style. Love the place, nice view of the ocean and the lighthouse from the front. Definitely call for reservations! BYOB. Reasonably priced. You will leave stuffed and smiling. Mangia!

“Got to love this place. Don't expect the Ritz, just enjoy.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

We have been going to Mimmo's for 20 years. Love the heavy smell of garlic when you walk in. It is a BYOB place, so the prices are higher. You make it what it what you want. Mimmo himself is a character and use to walk around getting tastes of everyone's wine. I haven't seen that lately, which we miss. Food is good. Portions are OK, nothing to write home about.

They use to give you four plastic cups for water that didn't match and pitcher of water. Now they actually match.

Bottom line, just relax, enjoy your wine and soak in the atmosphere. Seating can be tight at time (as in smaller tables/chairs/crowding).

VERY IMPORTANT --> make sure you make a reservation. It could be empty and you will still wait and get a seat next to the kitchen or bathroom..... Quirky, but that is the way that it is.

Ask for a window by the ocean if possible.

“Love this place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

Great food within walking distance of the anchorage, where we stayed. BYOB and staff reminds you of this when you make reservations. Owner is very friendly. Great place.
