Everyone at Mimmo's was awesome. When I walked in the door they knew who I was and took us to our table. We were taken care of quickly and checked in with regularly. We were probably a little loud and needy but we never felt like we were a burdon. Great experience for a team dinner and celebrating a birthday.

Service was very slow. Food was okay. Took a long time for the food to come out and then was cold when finally served.

We enjoyed everything about our meal - great service from Rosie, delicious food and very nice ambiance for a family dinner. We loved their cheese pizza, clam chowder, salad with House dressing, lobster raviolis, and coconut gelato. Everything we tasted was fresh and delicious. Everyone who works there is super nice and friendly. it is a very welcoming restaurant. We look forward to going back again soon!

Some girlfriends and I decided to try someplace new for Valentine’s, and OpenTable was like “hey, how about some Italian?” So Mimmo’s we booked. When we arrived, we went right to our table, and our waitress, Arlene, was ready to take our drink order right away. I had the sangria, which was SO refreshing. For appetizers we went with the pepperoncini and the mozzarella fritti. Both were absolutely delicious, but I have to warn you, the pepperoncini is NOT for the faint of heart. Entrees arrive. I had the crab ravioli, served in a asparagus white wine sauce. Excellent quality at a decent price point. Highly recommend. And since we had a bit of a wait due to all the reservations, Arlene offered us not one, but TWO desserts on the house. We chose both the Juniors cheesecake and FLOURLESS chocolate torte, and I would describe both as a party in your mouth. Excellent service the entire time. Although it was a busy night, everyone who served our table has treated us like family. Highly recommend.

We got a variety of drinks, the spinach crab dip was great and the salmon special and homemade ravioli dishes all delicious. It was all very good!
We had a nice night, good food and great service. Great banquet facilities as well.

A great homemade type Italian restaurant with very good, if not spectacular food. Very good tap. Service is amazing. I liked it particularly because it was quiet and not crowded. Went on a Tuesday night. Reasonable. I could go there once a month and not tire of it.

This is the second time I have visited Mimmo’s restaurant and both times the server was pleasant,
professional as was the rest of the staff. The food was reasonable and the portion of food for the price was

The service was outstanding because the servers were pleasant and patient. The music was fantastic! The performer, who was very talented, played to the crowd. The enthusiastic crowd who applauded every song just loved his music very much. I could see while looking around at other tables, that the meals were presented with such a flair and were very attractive. The meal I had ordered was very tasty and was of an amount that was more than filling. When that performer plays there I will definitely come to Mimmo's again.

Party of 7 for a retirement celebration. Three had veal dishes said veal was tough and no flavor. Person who had Scampi also said no flavor with very little sauce. I suggested it because I was there several other times and it was good but very disappointed this time. Service was a little slow.

Great food and service was excellent. Waitress Kim was pleasant and very knowledgeable about the menu. Meals were delicious and portions ample. Mozzarella app is home made and not your normal cheese sticks. So much better. Mojito was amazing with very fresh mint, the way a mojito should be. I would recommend to all.

The homemade ravioli was the night's standout. All the entres were plentiful, with everyone leaving with a to go box (even me, and it's rare that I don't finish my meal). Alexis was a great waitress: attentive, friendly and patient with our elderly parents.
It's unfortunate that we don't live in Reading -- we would be regulars here.

The food was very enjoyable at Mimmos. This was our first time there and it was very busy with several graduation get togethers. There was entertainment that evening which added to our pleasant dining experience. I felt their busy restaurant that evening did not affect the quality of their food. They were able to provide Gluten Free items for our table of 6 that were gluten free. We will all definitely return.

We were cheerfully greeted and seated immediately for our 12:30 reservations by our hostess. Our waitress took our drink orders and allowed us time to look over their extensive menu. We ordered appetizers of calamari and bruschetta. We also ordered the veal Calabrese, cheese ravioli, lobster ravioli, and baked ziti. Our dinner orders included soup or salad and we all opted for salads. We expected to see our appetizers delivered first but received our salad orders first. I was still eating my salad when the appetizers arrived. I little out of the ordinary and I began to feel rushed. The calamari was excellent and the bruschetta was good. We were still eating our appetizers when our entree's arrived. This is very poor coordination between the waitress and the kitchen. The cheese ravioli was good, not great, instead of lobster ravioli our guest received shrimp ravioli, the baked ziti was plentiful and good, but the veal Calabrese was a bit of a disappointment. The veal was cooked perfectly but it was buried under a ton of angel hair pasta. The sauce was advertised as spicy, it was not, and there were no hot peppers. Our table then became too crowded. It's not like the restaurant was busy, because they weren't at that time. There were open tables and booths with reserved signs with the time and names of the next guests. We ordered deserts of the chocolate molton lava cake and a tiramisu along with a decaf cappuccino a single espresso. Our desserts arrived and we were told our coffees would be out shortly. That's when our waitress went MIA for at least ten minutes and when she arrived with the coffee and espresso, the espresso was cold. I'm not sure we'll go back again. It was a disappointment

Our reservation was for 13 people. We had a buffet as part of their “Alvernia graduation dinner”. I could not have been more pleased. They ran this event like a well oiled machine. From soup to nuts. Reservations to desert. It all went smooth with no waiting. The back room with the bar was a perfect setting with round wooden tables and napkins in the school colors. Our drink orders were taken right away, even though guests had staggered arrivals. All of our party commented how good the food was, especially the seafood pasta dish and make your own salad. Wings and meatballs were great for the younger crowd. They made the day less stressful for us, from adding in a “birthday cannoli” for a family member and even asking if we remembered to take a family picture as we were leaving, which we did not. They were very professional and did not miss a beat. Great job!
