Reviewed 14 April 2013

Mimmo and his crew are amazing. The food is great, the lunch buffet is always a winner. Nice and fresh, and made just the way you like it.

“Best Italian restaurant!”
Reviewed 10 April 2013

The best meatballs EVER, their lasagna has that homemade comfort food goodness, and their fettucini Alfredo with green chile -- YUM! A great place to have a nice dinner with a cup of wine.

“Neighborhood Staple”
Reviewed 7 March 2013

I have been going to Mimmo's for years since moving to the west side of Albuquerque in 1996. I enjoy their pizza and pasta buffet they have each night, that also includes a salad bar. All you can eat, and they have a nice selection of wine to accompany your meal.

Their take out is also good. I love their Pizza ala Casa, a white pizza with tomatoes, spinach, etc. I also recently ordered a tray of lasagna, salad and garlic bread for to help out some friends who had suffered a recent loss in their family. They loved everything.

“Overrated price for mediocre food.”
Reviewed 19 February 2013

Cleanliness of the restaurant was okay. Our waiter was neat, clean, and polite. I asked for suggestions on the food. He didn't hesitate in his answers. I had the scaloppine della casa and my girlfriend had gamberi fra diavolo. My dish was definitely saucy and full of mushrooms. The veal was lacking. My girlfriend's dish had plenty of shrimp, but was not spicy at all according to the menu. We received side dishes of salad which were okay and side of spaghetti w sauce which was also just okay. We would have been more impressed if the bread would have been home made or more like rolls. Instead, they look like hoagie rolls cut in half with butter smacked on top. Because our meals were mediocre, dessert didn't seem enticing at all. They seem to have become lazy in providing real Italian cuisine. Maybe they should advertise American-Italian cuisine instead....the taste of
Fast food Italian restaurant...

“EXCELLENT!!”
Reviewed 14 January 2013

This place is the REAL deal. The pizza is amazing. Mimmos pizza crust is the best. If you buy a large three-topping pizza, you get a small cheese pizza for free. The small looks more like a medium (by pizza chain standards). If you don't like plain cheese, they will allow you, for example, to order a large 2-topping and then use the third topping on the cheese pizza (as long as you have a total of three toppings) for the free small pizza deal. Dine-in service is always great. The owners/operators are outstanding. I always look forward to eating at Mimmos.
