“Another wonderful meal!”
Reviewed April 27, 2014

Once again, Mimmo's has exceeded my expectations. Last night was the linguine with clams, white sauce. Pasta was perfect al dente! Nice glass of chianti and tirimisu for dessert. Priced right, warm atmosphere.

“True Italian Cuisine, simply amazing!”
Reviewed April 15, 2014 via mobile

This restaurant serves authentic Italian food and it's amazing! I've been to Italy many many times and this pizza as well as the pasta dishes are prepared the way you'd get it served in Italy. Pasta is nice and 'al dente' and not overlooked the way you usually get it served in so many other 'Italian' places. So happy I found this place, because not a single restaurant in this area that claims to be Italian serves actually real Italian food. I saw reviews on here how they are overpriced and how they need to watch Gordon Ramsey - all I have to say is: those are words of a hater that doesn't appreciate the real taste of Italian food.
Thumbs up, I hope Mimmo's will never change, I'll gladly be coming back to enjoy their food!

Not sure why this restaurant is rated so high. Makes you wonder if its a tourist trap. I ate at Mimmos over spring break an ordered LINGUINE FRUTTI DI MARE 24.95. Hardly any seafood in the dish (two small shrimp, three mussels and the smallest clams in the world) and the babies clams that came with it were a joke. The clams shells were so small you could crack a tooth if not noticed. The place is like eating in a cave so maybe people can't see what they are eating. For a restaurant, in a town with a fresh seafood market down the street, the quality of food was poor. Its another overpriced poor eatery in Destin. Even the Margarita pizza was missing fresh tomatoes. Mimmo could only say that this is way things were made in Italy.The customer was wrong. Good luck with that business plan. I think he needs to watch some Gordon Ramsey shows.

“Wonderful find”
Reviewed April 8, 2014 via mobile

Stopped in while on vacation with my wife and two picky kids. Nice ambiance is unexpected from the strip mall location, very warm and charming inside. Prompt & professional service. Wine list is limited if you just want a glass, decent martini & cocktail menu.

I had a whole snapper grilled with potatoes and spinach. Excellent. Wife had chicken caprese which was tender and not too heavy on the herbs. 8-year old had alfrefo noodles that were too buttery but recovered thanks to an appetizer of garlic knots, those were fantastic and not greasy. 5-year old had spaghetti marinara that was perfectly done.

Meal was on the pricier side. Entrees start in the low teens and my red snapper special was over $30. It's great but don't go expecting to pay less than $25 per adult.

Thank ICness
