Although I enjoyed and I would return , I think that all pasta should be under $25.00
$29/29 for pasta in a small restaurant in quaint town in Westchester is $$$. I am from Manhattan and think this was high.
Entrees should all be close to 31 wherever possible

Thx

We had an incredible cheese and meat platter and unbelievable Carbonara. My only issue was with the pork belly special entree. I’m always a little hesitant ordering that because of the fat but the waiter described how it was prepared and that the fat was cooked down. To the contrary it was really all fat. The vegetables were great and the sauce amazing but I should have said something at the time. We’ll definitely be back but will stay away from the pork belly.

We were very disappointed overall. The good part was that we did not feel rushed at all and enjoyed a table on the back for six people. The service was slow and it was very frustrating when one of our party did not get her entrée. They forgot to make it and was delayed by about 10 minutes.

Warm, welcoming staff, old school ambiance with classic good cooking. Manager Arturo knows his restaurant and diners; chef/owner Dominic friendly, skilled and creative. Based on my past orders they suggested two wines which we were invited to taste (I liked the inexpensive 2016 La Cattura Toscana), and an Osso Bucco that was excellent.

On the main drag in Irvington within easy reach of Rockland and Westchester. Deserves a try.

I have been to Mimas a few times before. Last night was the first time sitting in the back room and I was extremely disappointed at how many bugs (big and small) were flying around the back room during our entire dinner. This is extremely unsanitary and makes for a less than ideal dining experience when you are waving flies away from your face and food the whole meal. It’ll be a while before we go back and if we do - we will only sit in front of the restaurant since I don’t remember this being an issue when we sat up front.

We were disappointed- reviews oversold this. We were a party of five and each ordered different appetizers and different entrees. There was not much flavor in most of the dishes. The only successful dishes were the octopus appetizer, spaghetti carbonara and rigatoni bolegnese. Unfortunately, everything else was bland (and the branzino was not fileted well either, as there were a number of bones). The desserts were very good!

Mima is always good. It is my go to Italian restaurant in the area. Although its offerings extend beyond red sauce/gravy dishes, that is what I go for. Mima’s meatballs are authentic, sautéed and delicious. And the red sauce/gravy is as good as I’ve ever had. Top that off with some red vino (Tuscan) and you have a perfect evening.

This was our first time at Mima’s, and the moment we set foot in the door we were made to feel welcomed and comfortable. The food was only surpassed by the attentiveness of the waitress. We had a lovely dinner and dessert.

Food is very good, service is excellent as well. However the restaurant looks old and the chairs are too high. The prices are high so I expected more. Overall though my pasta and my wife’s chicken was really good.

Early Saturday night dinner...6:30 or so on a steamy night. Restaurant was so comfortably cool, back room lovely and the food and wine were fantastic! Started with the chick peas, meatballs (not to be missed,) followed by chicken scaparello, chicken Milanese, and eggplant rolls tonight. Wonderful dinner and looking forward to next visit!

This is a wonderful little place! The service is not pretentious and the food is spectacular. The cocktails are also wonderful. The blueberry-basil mule is refreshing and tasty. I went the first night with friends and enjoyed it so much that the next night I took my business dinner there. The roasted chickpeas... Who would have thought that as a carnivore I would enjoy those so much. The scallops where wonderful. A colleague had the pork chop special, also a treat. They were super accommodating to my Celiac colleague. I highly recommend and will be back. The only drawback might be that the place is a tad noisy.

Pretty old world Italian setting. Quiet and very romantic.
The service was polite professional and extremely attentive.
The menu selections were original regional Italian cuisine. Everything was prepared perfectly with distinctive Italian seasonings. Compliments to an outstanding chef.
Serving portions were generous. Prices were acceptable for such terrific gourmet fare.

Me, my wife and family will definitely return soon.

Sorry to have to write this, but the noise level was terrible. You could not hear yourself think. We wanted coffee and dessert, so our waitress, who was lovely got us a table in the window area. Better, but still noisey. It’s a shame since the food is good, on the expensive side and staff are very nice.

Our waiter was professional, well spoken and pleasant but the real story here is the food. The dishes are innovative and delicious. My only critique is that the chairs are not very comfortable and when the restaurant is full the noise level is quite high. But definitely worth a try.
