Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

My fave spot for proper Italian food. The sandwiches are insane and the arancini is UNBEATABLE! (Get a mix of everything). The guys who work there are always so lovely and smiley. They also have tons of dry/cupboard Italian food and juices, wine etc that...you can barely get anywhere in London.More

Arrived on the stroke of 5:30. Owner had locked up and was heading home. But top man – he reopened to grab me a pack of the squid ink pasta I needed. And then shared recipe tips for the dinner I was cycling home to...cook. Another case of super friendly service at this fantastic neighbourhood deli. It’s also a great place to grab a meal if you’re at the cricket around the corner.More

I feel absolutely blessed to be working in a building over the road from Mimi's Deli. In a post-pandemic time, coming in to the office to work still feels a little strange, and although I'm only doing so a couple of times a month, there's...still a weird uncertainty around leaving the house in the morning. But the uncertainty is washed away when I remember the reward waiting for me. Lunch time. Mimi's Deli. Spicy Salami Salad and a Cafe Latte. An order of absolute perfection with a top class taste, with some witty banter from the extremely passionate and charming staff on the side. I've eaten a lot of lunch in London, but Mimi's Deli is the place I'm most passionate about recommending to others.More

A friend brought me some florentines from this deli and they were so amazing I had to track the place down. The best florentines I've had in London, for sure. Very friendly service too.

Got a takeaway toasted ciabatta and was astounded that they charged me £7.50 for it!! I thought I had been charged twice. No price list on the board, only a small list in a corner on a random table. Tasted fine but nothing special to...warrant charging double the standard price of this type of panini. Agree with other comments that staff were rude also. Will not be returning.More

I came to this restaurant/café for the first time and I was very excited as I love Italian food. However, I found the staff very rude. Firstly, they were only displaying the prices for take way but not labelled as such. Therefore, I decided to...eat in as I though it was a reasonable price until I found out it was at least 3/4 pounds more expensive than take way. I wanted to pay at the beginning, the lady was rude ("these are the rules", she says) and I was told that the payment is only done at the end. Now I understand why, otherwise I would have taken take away and paid less. However, I had lasagna and it was very good. The portion was not big though. I would recommend the food but not the service. It was probably bad luck as I have seen very good comments of this restaurant.More

I've been visiting Mimi's on and off for years due to sometimes working round the corner. No matter how long it's been I'm always welcomed back with a big smile and a round of "Ciao" from the whole staff asking where I've been. The food...is excellent and you might even walk away with an Italian treat you've never heard for home from their little grocery section. Oval wouldn't be the same for me without Mimi's!More

My friends had visited Mimi's several times before...it was my first meal here. Super-friendly welcome, and they rearranged 3 small table to seat all 6 of us. A huge lunchtime menu to choose from. I chose stuffed-with-mincemeat peppers with salad and rice. Soooo tasty! Everyone...else thoroughly enjoyed their various meals too. The real Italian vibe is a delight, are were all the staff...plenty of dish suggestions flying around. Such fun! Sadly we had no time to check out the huge displays of Italian deli delights...maybe next time. Loved it!More

Incredibly nice Italian family run this deli which has a nice restaurant in the back. You can get virtually anything you need from the Deli part, whether bottled vegetables, tuna, olive oil or pasta, plus wine and spirits. There is a good range of food...at the counter. The coffee is very good too. Very friendly staff, especially the tall young man with the big motorbike. Always has a cheery word to old grey heads like me. Bravissimo. Buona Fortuna.More
