I can't thank Mimmo's enough for having curbside pickup during the pandemic! We've loved all of the following dinners: Toscano Seafood Di Mare Crab Cakes Shrimp Scampi Stuffed w/Crab Meat Scallop Medallions Pasta w/Mussels Parmigiana We've NEVER had a bad meal.

Had a pleasant Mother’s Day dinner at Mimmo’s but the service was slow, about 3 hours and over 2 hours to be served dinner with reservations. I love the wedding soup, but everyone in our group had cold soup which was disappointing. We had appetizers...which were slow to be served but were fine. Unfortunately our entrees were even slower to be served and were cold as well. We gave up and left without dessert. This was a disappointing experience. It is not what we expect or the service and food quality we come to expect from Mimmo’s. A cautionary tale. Probably best to avoid Mimmo’s during busy periods for now. Hopefully they will figure it out.More

Lucy and Mike run a great restaurant, and they have been surviving the supply chain crisis to be able to feed their customers.

Ate dinner with 8 adults and 7 kids over 13. Making reservation was easy. We had a nice table outside and it was lovely. Service was good for such a large party and all the food was delicious. I would not say they were the...most patient with the kids who walked around a lot. Would definitely go back.More

Went with family members in August. Sat outside on a very temperate day as some members did not want to sit inside due to fears of COVID. I get that. Service was very good. It's a team effort. Everybody in my party of 9 seemed...to enjoy their meals from start to finish. Save for me. I had the meat ravioli, and the pasta was on the tough side. Maybe I've had too much Chef Boyardee. None the less, I ate the whole thing because it tasted good. We also tried a few desserts which were quite good. Good beer and wine selection. Nice place inside, too. Will we do this place again? I'm sure we will.More

I have been dining at Mimmo's regularly through the years. I went there with my boyfriend and were displeased with where we were seated. We were placed in a corner and told that they couldn't accommodate 2 in the sunny outside garden. That's wasn't a...problem until we kept seeing more and more people being seated out there. Plenty of couples sitting in 4 tops as well as open tables. I was annoyed so I asked for our food to go. A young man came out and explained that they were probably reserved tables. That is fine. It should have ended there. Then this short balding man whom I had seen barking at all of the waitstaff came to the table with his voice raised and accused me of causing a scene. I asked him what I said. He told me that I had caused a scene by complaining to the waitstaff that my *add expletive* food was taking 20 minutes. I told him I said no such thing. He continued to speak to me in a loud and disrespectful way. I told him that he needed to clarify that because I said no such thing. I do not know who this man is, I suspect an owner. I have NEVER been spoken to in such a disrespectful way. No man should EVER show that sort of agression to ANY woman. I feel bad for his waitstaff that they have such a belligerent supervisor. He was the one making a scene. Good Lord that man needs some anger management and a vacation. Well, as much as I have enjoyed their business in the past you can damn well bet that I will NEVER be back! Reading has too many excellent Italian restaurants to have to deal with divas! I would give it a zero out of 5 if I could.More

Just to make it clear for everyone reading, you kept yelling “this is bull****” to our staff about your seat. If that’s not causing a scene, we are not sure what is. The owner did in fact come out and in fact did yell because...More

While visiting recently, our group went to this for a treat. All of us being of Italian heritage, we were reluctant to try the Wedding Soup as we're generally disappointed. However, we found it good, though not as good as my wife makes. My wife...had the eggplant parmesan and pronounced it very good. I had the Shrimp Scampi stuffed with crab meat, over homemade pasta. A bit overdone, but a good taste. The service was very good and appropriate Covid counter-measures appear to be taken.More

We were driving by and looked up for a place to have lunch. In covid times it’s never easy. I liked this place right away because had a sign that masks were required. The food was delicious omg!!! We had the pepperoncini ( I believe...it was the name) for appetizer and it was delicious. The garlic bread was tasty. My husband loved the pizza and I enjoyed my salmon and the freshness of the salad and veggies. Everything was really fresh you could tell. And our waitress was lovely. I definitely recommend this place. Oh btw: best tiramisu I ever tasted.More

What a pleasant surprise. Great, tasty affordable food, in a relaxing atmosphere. Emily is nothing less than a spectacular waitress. Attentive, yet, she gave us space, with a great sense of humor. If you want a casual dining experience, with out bumping into the table...next to you, Mommy's is the place.More

This was recommended by a co-worker as we had business up in that area. I did not know i would be eating the BEST veal parm I ever had... and I was told the pizza is great so I had a slice of pizza too...- that was great also... I mean the place is beautiful and the service is good but to have the best of a dish... yeah that was not expected! The pizza was REALLY good too... I strongly recommend this place if you find yourself up there! Kudos Mimmo'sMore

There were about 31 of us, children and adults. They provided three choices including a very simple chicken dish for this italian style restaurant. Deserts were great the service was fantastic, the food really was quite good. We had a private room so I would...recommend this for this kind of event.More

It seems very nice restaurant with big menu, but it didn't meet my expectations during my first visit. I ordered Chicken Parmesan sandwich but i found chicken was dried. However, tomato soup was very good. (visited on 04/11/2019 for Lunch). Service was very good..
