one of the most unpleasant experiences – aside from a well chilled martini there is little else i can say that is positive. i returned to this restaurant after several years because i remeber the friendly atmosphere, the tasty dishes. what an unpleasant surprise to find a rude hostess and a waiter that is beyond description. suffice it to say that he was a caracature of haughtiness, arrogance and air of self importance. if the food wasnt such an expensive disappointment i would find these two people almost comical. my guess is that the positive reviews you may have seen (if any) are dated when the restaurant was under differen ownership
Way Over Priced – Had friends in from Ohio and wanted to try a different restaurant in Little Italy. Missed this review site. Food was way over priced!!!! Quality was average at best, and the service… well momma always said “if you don’t have anything good to say..don’t say it” Skip this place.. do yourself a favor.
Got sick from the fish – We were visiting from New York and the place seemed nice but the bathrooms were dirty and there were crumbs all over the floor. I had fish and have been sick ever since I ate there on Friday
Not to happy – Went down this last week and was very disappointed. Our server acted like he did not want to wait on us. The food was mediocre at best. The food is highly overpriced as well. After dinner we went to Vaccaros for dessert and the locals on the corner told us that the owner was Polish and the chef was Iranian! Where are the Italians? Maybe we are just too young but I did not know anybody in there celebrity photos. We shall not return.
Tourist Trap! – Firstly, if the faded pictures on the bar walls are to be believed, there hasn't been a celebrity in this place in 20 years. Secondly, it would appear that the snotty manager Masood is now the executive chef. The menu hasn't evolved in any way since Mimmo died, the food is still overpriced and overcooked, and they still fail to tell you that the "specials" like the lobster tetrazini and that huge veal chop are $55+ entrees. The limo only picks up guests from the hotels, probably due to the fact that the locals would never eat here.
I have dined at Da Mimmo's many times when I lived in MD. Last week my family and were passing thru MD and decided to stop for dinner. Our waiter was rude from the start. When my wife asked for a glass of wine my the glass it could not be done ( even though they have abar down stairs). We then orderd the salads from the specials. Four salads at a cost of $60.00. Mine you they did not have a shrimp or meat on them. Just a small salad. The entrees were completely average.
Did you ever walk out of a restaurant and just feel totaly taken. There are too many other good restaruant's in Baltimore. Do not waste your time with Da Mimmo's
Completely avarage food at a high price.
Don't expect exceptional service – My family and I went to Da Mimmo's believing that the food would be authentic and excellent. However, upon arrival, the waiter seemed less than thrilled to be catering to us and was more infatuated with pouring the bottle of San Pellegrino for the Italians next to us. When asked if he would be bringing bread, he grunted that they had run out for the day, meanwhile the people next to us got a loaf as we were speaking. The waiter later returned with a basket of bread, noting that he "had to pull some strings" might I add that the bread was stale, most likely to be used for a stuffing. Not only was our waiter rude and ineffectual, but the other waiters were just as impolite. Also, if you the type of individual who enjoys a singular glass of wine with your meal, this is not the place for you. Wine only comes by the bottle, although you can get a half bottle with the cheapest being $21. If you are expecting a nice quiet meal, Da Mimmo's is not the place. Not only was the food highly over priced, especially considering the portion size, the staff is not the least bit congenial.
Editorial Review by Christy Buena – Located in the heart of Little Italy, restaurant serves southern and northern Italian cuisine in romantic and elegant atmosphere.
overpriced but quality and servcie – 8 of us went on a Sunday night at 9P. We were well taken care of and all dishes and apps were well received. 3 ordered the red snapper surrounded by clams, scallops and mussels. The scallops were a trifle over done. The very light ricotta cheesecake was delicious. The odd thing was the wines. The inexpensive Kendal cab was better than the moderate chianti and the costly Barolo. We'd go again, though I'm sure there are better values in Lil Italy.
The Best – I just moved here from the Westcoast and this
was a real experience for me to visit an ethic neighborhood and restaurant. We have nothing
that compares to Little Italy in Oregon. My friends
and my husband and I fell in love with Da Mimmo's
the atmosphere, the friendliness of the staff and
the people we met were fabulous. The food and
service was excellent . I loved the ambiance and
the coziness of the restaurant as well as the decor
music and quaintness. We plan to visit again as often as we can. Yes it was expensive for drinks
and dinner but what we got was worth it. Thanks
for such a wonderful treat for us all.
