“Good for Beef”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2013 via mobile

We stopped into this place because the restaurant we were looking for was closed at 9:30 on a Sunday night. The menu looked interesting if not inspiring. Several meat options rather than just pizza and pasta. The house red wine was not particularly good and at €16 for a liter, definitely not a bargain. My beef with a tarragon sauce was tender and flavorful. One friend's veal with asparagus was good but the other friend's veal steak was just OK. The final tab was €30 each which I feel was high for the quality of food and service but, of course, this is Florence.

“Poor service, poor food and tourist trap..Just stay away.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 May 2013

Our hotel was on San Gallo..(We were right next to Trattoria Tito's but it was packed and needed reservation).. Headed over to Mimmo's to get a quick bite around 9:30pm.. The menu was nothing spectacular, along with the service.. My wife and i both speak English and Italian but English better. We live part time in Umbria at our casa. She ordered pasta marinara and I order tagliattale pasta with pesto. My pasta was mushy and not flavorful. My wife pointed to the waiter that she wanted simple pasta marinara and it came back with Marenara.. (fishes of the sea). We explained we didn't order this and he said we did and did not care.. It was terrible and obviously more expensive.. just an awful place and should be avoided. Friday night and not crowded at 10pm in Florence is not a good sign.. There were some locals there and you could tell they were treated different.. If they can survive on just locals more power tot them. (even our manager at our hotel stated go to Tito's.. which we did and when we came back and told her we couldn't get in and went to Mimmo's.. She shook her head and said years ago they were good but not no more.

“very disappointing”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 May 2013

I was at this restaurant in 2010 with a group of colleagues for dinner and thought the food was good. I returned this year with my family for lunch and was horribly disappointed. I sensed as well, like other reviewers, that they treat locals better than tourists. The pasta dishes that my kids had were awful, the sauce and meat in the two different dishes were the same (except for the pasta) and the meat looked and tasted like canned corned beef with dry tomato sauce slopped on. The chef was too busy socializing with locals and wasn't even in the kitchen, so I don't know to what others reviewers are referring. This was the worst restaurant we ate at in Florence during our week there and we will certainly not return to it.

“Ristorante da Mimmo”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 May 2013

Excellent florentine fare, prepared daily by the owner/chef Mimmo himself. We have visited this ristorante on our last two visits to Florence, and have been very pleased on both occasions. If you have a large party the dining area is quite open, seating is family style, and the food is always fresh. We will always make Mimmo's a "must Visit" on any future visits to Florence!
