I came to le Mimose with a group of international friends. We had great service, the food was very tasty. We had 3 appetisers and 6 pizzas, all were great. The house red wine went very well with the meal, and the staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. I recommend this restaurant for groups and family meals.

The locals gather here in the evening with their entire families. Don't expect anyone to speak English or bring you the menu in any other language than Italian. Just log in to the free wifi, use your dictionary and prepare for some great local food. Enjoy.

Enjoyed the antipasto of varied fish and the spaghetti with clams and mussels. Highlight was the friendly host. Lovely place.

My fiance and I were so pleased to find this gem of a family restaurant that specializes in fresh and local cuisine. The wait staff was friendly and efficient. Our meals (yes, of course, we returned again for other meals!) were divine--including gnocchi, beef, and a fish so flaky and succulent I thought I'd melt. Although we could enjoy the... More

What an incredible experience! My Grandma was from San Lucido and the food at Le Mimosa transported me back to my childhood. Everything was prepared to perfection and served with a smile. If you are traveling anywhere near Paola you must stop there to enjoy!
