“Great intentions (and we know what that paves)”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

I truly wish I could write a better review, but the food at Pizzaria Mimosa is just uninspired. The food is for the most part, bland. Spices are lacking. If this is done to please the palates of the locals, it only serves to make the food mediocre, and is, in this reviewers opinion, a mistake. The plates are dependent on the heaviness of cheeses, heavy creams, etc. rather than fresh basil, oregano, other spices and fresh vegetables. And a beautiful building, but no ear to sound mitigation. As all the surfaces are hard, the sound is a cacophony when there are only 20 or so people there. When it is full, it is deafening. All in all, an opportunity missed.

“Unbelievable class in the high desert of southern Arizona”
Reviewed 12 April 2014

Walking into this exquisite restaurant is like being in a resort area in Scottsdale, AZ...but you are in Hereford, AZ !! Vicki & Wendell are the consummate hosts/owners & anything on their menu is worth ordering...period.... !!! Of course, the mimosa's are the perfect cocktail either before or after dinner and their wine list is excellent.

“Inconsistent”
Reviewed 9 April 2014

Slow service: 20 minutes to get a glass of wine - and they were not busy. Inconsistent: two of us ordered the lasagna - the other guy got the good one with meat, pasta, just right. Mine was a soupy mess of cheese and a few noodles - one smidgen of meat - yucky, complained and got no satisfaction even tho the differences in the two servings was dramatic. I keep hoping this restaurant will someday get it's act together but I fear that it is hopeless. The kitchen is inconsistent in the extreme - and service seems to actually get worse each time I try them again. sad at best - and I really do want this to be a good option for dinner. $75 for dinner for 2 with bad service and lousy food ? Why bother?

“Had a great lunch!”
Reviewed 3 April 2014 via mobile

Went to Mimosa for the first time today for lunch with a friend. There were only two other guests as it was well after lunchtime. The food was good, the design is beautiful and the decor was lovely. We did have to ask for ground pepper for our salads and then grated Parmesan for our pizza though. I don't mean to be picky but that seems pretty basic for an Italian restaurant. My Cesar salad was filled with the white core parts and the greens were pretty wilted but it wasn't terrible. The pizza was great! I will be going back on Friday for dinner so we will see.
