We are open! Come and join us and check out our beautiful new bar and dining area.
The foundation of good Italian cooking is the freshest of ingredients prepared with simplicity, bringing together flavors so no one ingredient overpowers another. Mimmo’s Italian roots begin in his hometown of Bagheria, Sicily. The fresh fruits and vegetables picked from his family’s farm were on the table, or tavola, that night. Our logo of the lemon and lemon flower, or zagara, is a symbol of Sicily’s rich history of growing and exporting lemons, and a reminder of Mimmo’s many memories of lemon picking in his grandfather’s groves.
APRIL 30TH 2022 IS OUR 10TH ANNIVERSARY! COME IN AND ENJOY A GLASS OF PROSECCO ON US TO CELEBRATE THIS MILESTONE.

    We had a pre Father’s Day dinner. 2 teens and 2 parents. The adults had sole with mashed potatoes and carrots for the sides. The sole was perfect - the portions were on the smaller end, but the appetizer of bruschetta did fill us up - so it was fine with me. Our meals were finished off with a wonderful tiramisu, my husband had a delicious crème brûlee. The teens had pesto gnocchi and pesto spaghetti. Everything was good.

    First time with my wife for our anniversary. The greeting and the entire staff was very welcoming. Our waiter was extremely helpful in choosing our dinner and wine pairings. Food was delicious and timely prepared. We cannot wait to go back to try more of the menu. Thanks for making it a memorable 36th anniversary.

    I love Mimmos! We were the only two people sitting at the bar (Lolo was the bartender) Lolo was busy with orders from the restaurant but was never too busy for us. We dined from the bar menu which is quite a bargain! We started with the calamari and the wedge salad and then moved on to the sole and my husband. lasagna. If you are looking for a casual meal with excellent value this is the place! I highly recommend the bar. It's a cool vibe and friendly atmosphere.

    This was a wonderful experience. It had been a long time since we'd been here (before the expansion) and some had never been. Joe, our waiter, was superb. For some reason there was a long delay between first and second course but we were ok with that. This was the reason I gave 4 stars for service, but it was probably the kitchen. I highly recommend the mushroom soup. It was fantastic!!!!

    Usually the food is good. We always come here on more than 1 occasion when we visit Palm Desert however this time the spaghetti and meatballs was bland and quite tasteless. My son ordered it last time he was there and he said the same thing. The staff are always great and attentive. Mimo’s is clean and the noise level is appropriate . Their olive tamponade and bread is very delicious . I just won’t order spaghetti and meatballs again .

    Service was kinda slow but that may be due to staffing levels. Our waiter had two rooms of tables to take care of. Took 15 minutes to have our order taken and for some reason at least 10 minutes to bring the salads. Entrees were timely but the pork medallions were overcooked. My husband reported that his fish dish was excellent and melted in the mouth. Dessert also took some time to deliver. Salad portions were large as were the desserts. We were there for restaurant week but the regular menu was well priced and we will go there again to try some of their other items, not on the special menu.

    Joey was our waiter organized efficient and knows his stuff . They offered a huge list of specials and he out of memory told us everything about. Very impressive. As well he knows the wine and full bar. The restaurant is beautiful, tables spaced apart as they still should be with the Covid thing hanging around . The food was the best Italian in all of the desert DELICIOUS All four of us ordered differently and loved everything

    I appreciate the outdoor dining for the 7 pm dinner reservation. Our waiter was the best at helping us choose our dinner. Compliments to the chef my European husband said the lasagne was one the best he ever had. I had the veal, which was very good, similar to in Serbia. Wine and calamari were delicious. Dinner was superb. You made our evening date memorable.

    We were very disappointed in the food. The red sauce was very bland and they charged us $5.50 for a very small side of pasta, which wasn't included with the chicken parmesan. We won't go back.

    For 1+ years, my fiancé and I stay in La Quinta 4-7 days at a time throughout the year and enjoying going out to dinner. We have our favorite restaurants, but look forward to trying new places as well. Mimmo’s was recommended to us by a friend (who now lives in LQ full-time) who has never steered us in the wrong direction, so we decided to try it during our last stay in mid-May. The staff was very professional and friendly, service great, and our meals were tasty—plated simply, but flavorful.
