Daughters were too beach tired to stay to eat, staff did amazing job of changing our reservation to takeout. Chicken parm excellent, Alfredo was perfect - the vegetarian vodka penne with mushrooms (suggested by server) was best pasta I've had in a long time. And we come from Italian part of Toronto. If you want real, fresh - Italian, this... More

Probably the most beautiful restaurant and bar in Destin, but , the food is less than average. I've been several times because all of my friends tell me how good it is. It's tasteless at best. They have no idea how to season food!

Great ambiance, killer garlic rolls, savory gnocchi bolognese, and outstanding service. Coupled with great wine selection and you have the go to Italian restaurant in Destin.

Ventured in with friends today looking for authentic Italian and we certainly found what we desired. Option to sit inside and enjoy the romantic decor or go outside and enjoy the legendary Florida weather. The pizzas are well-priced and quite delicious. Fresh toppings and savory tastes abound. I got the Pizza Regina topped with prosciutto slices, juicy roasted cherry tomatoes... More

If you are looking for a change of pace from the normal seafood based restaurants in Destin, then look no further than Mimmo's. This hidden JEWEL is as good as it gets as far as Italian(Sicilian) restaurants goes. SOMEBODY is doing some SERIOUS COOKING in the back of the restaurant...every dish that we ordered was AMAZING and to be quite... More

A small place with delcious food. We were a large party and lucky to be seated when we did as a couple of reservations were running late. I did think the service was slow as it took over an hour to get our food, but I think that was more about our waitress and the other large parties than anything... More

Excellent food and service. Upscale dining that doesn't break the bank. Great tasting kid options. Good menu and nice decor. A top dining destination in Destin.

We were there on a busy Friday night. We found a seat at the bar and bartenders were very attentive. Food was terrific as well as the pizza we brought home. I enjoyed sitting at the bar and meeting two very friendly couples who also opted to have dinner at the bar instead of waiting for a table. I will... More

I'm usd to Boston North End Italian food so it's a high bar. Mimmos was better than expected and easily rivaled the North End for quality and taste. Nice, cozy atmosphere and superb service. Best Caesar salad I ever had, no doubt.
