Overrated. The food is ok, probably better than average for Little Italy, Baltimore, but not outstanding. The wine list is fairly extensive, but prices are a bit high for the area. We were expecting a lot more overall, expecially from the staff which was slow to seat us (even with a reservation) and generally not overly polite. Their attitude was a bit too snobby for my taste. You're better off trying somewhere else, unless you enjoy the whole coat-check + cocktail bar uppity atmosphere.
The Best in Little Italy. Da Mimmo's has a wonderful atmosphere, impeccable service, and the food is always perfect. This definitely is the best Italian restaurant in Little Italy!
Eat before you arrive!. I took my staff there for a Christmas lunch and we were all very disappointed. I had the shrimp scampi which for $17.95 contained 3 shrimp. One of my staff had gnocchi and it came in a small dish about the size of a deck of cards, my other employee had sole that was served on a small slender plate that again was undersized for the almost $20 price. It was really embarassing and I had to take everyone to Vaccaro's afterward to save face.
A special evening. I have never had a "dish" I didn't like! Great place to eat for a special occasion!
Authentic As It Gets. The restaurant's ambiance and food provided a truly authentic and original italian experience. Absolutely fabulous.
Wheres the beef. I am so sorry but I was so dispointed in Da Mimmo's. We were there during the winter last year and we ordered the famous veal and it was full of fat. We went upstairs to a very dark dinning hall. We did come down to a very pleasant piano bar. Overall food was not good at all and very expensive. Our meal for two with a few drinks was over 125.00. That is one drink each and dinner for 62.50 per person. Wow. Won't go back but did like the owner (he was drunk) but very funny.
5 STAR IT IS NOT!!. The food was wonderful but the service was defenitely NOT up to par. My office went there for secretaries day. Half of our party didn't even get their food until after the other half had finished eating. A couple waiting for the valet ended up getting their doggy bags snatched by a waiter. VERY POOR SERVICE AND RUDE BEYOND BELIEF FOR A 5 STAR RESTAURANT!!!
Warm and Wonderful. If your Italian aunt had a resturant it wouldn't be better than DA Mimmo. It's warm , friendly and food that can't be beat in Baltimore's part of Italy. If you're lucky enough to get an upstairs front window seat on a warm summer evening you can watch the old italian ladies sit on their steps across the street...just like in the old country. The veal is the best in the land. Sit by the piano before or after dinner and enjoy the cozy atmosphere in one of Baltimore's best, and most romantic resturants. By the way she's the hostess and he's the chef !!!
You call that service?.
Three of us went to DA Mimmo on Saturday nite. The food was excellent, creative and tasty. However, I think that it was pricey for what we got.
The restaurant atmosphere was fine, even though it was a little cramped where we sat.
Service, however, was not acceptable. The waiter seemed put out and bored by our questions about the dishes and by our not ordering wine. I believe that the expression is "He looked down his nose at us". We usually dine at better restaurants, and we are not used to this. But, regardless of the waiter's impression of the clients, all clients should be treated with a certain amount of respect and deference, especially considering the price tag of the meal. And, this meal had a big price tag.
Best of Baltimore.
DA Mimmo is the very best for Italian food in little Italy and Baltimore !
