Reviewed February 11, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Mimma's is a longtime Milwaukee institution on Brady Street. The food is always very good. If you haven't tried this place please do! And ask for Will.

“Mimma's came through for us”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

A friend of ours who is a professional food scientist and great cook was coming to visit and proposed meeting for dinner. Mentioned "Sunday," "Brady Street," and they were bringing their small dog on holiday. Many top restaurants are not open Sundays or do not allow pets, even outside. I found Mimma's met both criteria, although they do not have a formal "patio." We enjoyed watching the street life however, always entertaining on Brady.

We were met by a great waiter, really one of the best we've ever had, who hustled a table, chairs and place settings to the sidewalk in front of the restaurant. Then he proceeded to guide us through the wine list and menu with great skill and enthusiasm. A real pro.

We started with the antipasto appetizer platter which was a great value, with high quality ingredients, plenty for 4 to share. Wine chosen was lovely. Ordered 4 "specials" of the day, also excellent. Concluded with some of the best tiramisu we've had anywhere. Mimma came out and visited with us for quite a while as well, which we enjoyed. It was a really special meal overall.

We had not been to Mimma's for quite some time, and my spouse isn't a big fan of Italian food other than pizza; but given our excellent experience in July 2013, we will definitely be back.

“We really enjoyed our meal.”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

We ate last week at Mimma's while visiting Milwaukee. I thought the food was very good. The server was excellent. He steered me toward a chicken special that had herbs, veggies and goat cheese inside a breast. It was delicious. Two others had the seafood ravioli, which was very rich but they ate it all. I picked a Pinot Grigio. The server said he didn't recommend their Pinot Grigio and brought me a taste of that and another white (which notably was not more expensive) but was much better. We enjoyed our meal but were too full for dessert. I would definitely go there again.

“Bella Mimma!”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

We dined there last night. My husband had pasta and I had the mixed appetizer that could have fed four so I've more to serve at dinner tonight. We've been to a few so-so restaurants on and near Brady, and one really bad one that went out of business. We like this restaurant, a bit pricey but the service is superb and the food is good. What more can one ask?
