The food was superlative albeit a bit on the pricey side. The best Veal marsala I’ve ever had. Great atmosphere and decor.

I have dined at many places throughout the US and abroad; Da Mimmo's is possibly one of my very favorites. They are always glad to see you, the attention to service is excellent, the food is authentic and never fails to exceed expectations. MaryAnn and her staff take great pride in their legacy of creating a superior dining experience. If I lived in Baltimore, I'd eat there often.

Dinner at Da Mimmo, alone, is worth the trip for my wife and me from Philadelphia to Baltimore. This time, we were able to introduce dear friends in town from LA to the restaurant. No doubt, they will return next time they are in town. For more than 25 years, we have loved Da Mimmo and return often.

I've never been to an Italian restaurant before and was not offered grated cheese or ground peppers to go with my pasta dish when served. That was minor compared to the food itself; I ordered the shrimp scampi and it was awful. The shrimp had no flavor and tasted like rubber. The sauce was ok but the noodles didn't have much taste either and the plate was very small. I would compare my meal to a canned chicken noodle soup with rubber shrimp instead of the chicken. The bread was tiny and could easily be feed to birds in the park. The Calamari was pedestrian. If you like nice atmospheres and not concerned about the quality or value of the food then the place is great. I loved the guest photos in the lounge, the tables, array of the restaurant and the upstairs view of Little Italy. However, I'm just happy I didn't get sick with it being new years eve. I will never go to this restaurant again and am a long time Baltimore resident.

I have dined at Da Mimmo's numerous times both business and pleasure. My experience on New Year's eve was an anomaly compared to all of my previous dining experiences at Da Mimmo. My wife and I had a 7:30pm reservation but were not seated until after 8:00pm - I think they forgot we were waiting in the bar. Once seated our waiter was extremely disorganized and unfamiliar with the menu. He served portions of our meal out of order. I made the manager aware of our situation/concerns and he engaged. I later found out that our waiter was actually the shuttle driver and had no experience as a waiter. As normal the food was excellent! I was disappointed this happened at this high-end restaurant. Plus, the manager offered no real apology or any adjustment to the check.

Da Mimmo has been around for decades. Although there are more creative and interesting restaurants in town and even in Little Italy, for Baltimoreans the familiar and reliably good Da Mimmo will never go out of style. Pricey, but still good food and good service.

My girlfriend and I absolutely loved Da Mimmo. We made reservations on NYE. Upon arriving, we were immediately seated and greeted by the staff. Our waiter was a top notch professional and very attentive. I ordered a Cesar Salad, garlic bread and Chicken Marsala and all were outstanding. Can’t wait to go back!

Unable to mix a champagne cocktail at lunch on New Year’s Eve. Out of house specialty veal as well. The place looked closed upon our arrival for a reservation made days in advance. I read today that the place is for sale. I wish the management had just cancelled our reservation since the place was clearly unprepared for the occasion.

I was pleasantly surprised. It was expensive, but I think it was worth every penny. The only negative comment was that there was no toilet paper in the women’s room. The service was excellent, the veal piccata was excellent, the crabmeat appetizer was excellent, etc. the waiter, who turned out to be the owner’s son, was superlative. At this price point a lot of what makes the difference is service, and I cannot say enough about the service.

Arrived early and were seated in short order. The Veal Chops are a house specialty for good reason.
The ambiance and service along with the remarkable cuisine make it a wonderful dining experience.
Da Mimmo's is always a top choice when we visit Baltimore. Private parking lot is a nice convenience.

We were seated promptly as we made an early Sunday dinner reservation. Service was good. There were so many specials we had to ask for a repeat. The Chilean sea bass is melt in your mouth incredible although a little pricey. My husband ordered the veal chop which was cooked perfectly and so plentiful we had it the next day for dinner! Everything was wonderful from salads, wine and dinner. Sunday night is half priced wine night from a select list.

Excellent food and service. I would have given it 5 stars, except for a slight problem with flies...which surprised us given that it is early November. We will be back, and I would not anticipate finding that problem again.

I hate to say it but we were disappointed. We wanted to like the place. The driver who picked us up at our hotel was great and personable. We were received and served drinks quickly. I then proceeded to see them take bread and put it into a toaster to barely warm it before brining it to our table without anything to accompany it. We ordered arancini which was the highlight of our visit. But we received one which is quite ridiculous given the price. I was discouraged from the risotto telling me it would take too long. I ended up with pasta and chicken that days later I can’t even recall other than it wasn’t great. It was slimy and I swear the chicken wasn’t good. He got the “special” which was veal. The veal was not good. It did not taste good and was swimming in blood. Whoever cooked it cut into it before delivery which resulted in all the juice leaking out and the broccoli swimming in it. Just yuck! Again the highlight was the drive back. We learned about the area and the driver was very nice. Again I feel bad to say it but I’d avoid this place.

Food was outstanding and the service was warm and professional. Veal Chop portion was huge and tasty. Sea bass was beautifully prepared. We would recommend this to anyone looking for a dining experience with excellent food and a noise level that allows good conversation. Having their own parking lot is an added bonus.

The sign out front says voted #1 chef! Wow we got lucky to find this place!

We got there a little earlier than our reservation and were great warmly by a man asking our name. we went in the bar for a drink only to find reserved signs at a nearly empty bar.

We were religated to sit a side table and ordered Old Fashions. They were horrible and we did not finish them.

While we were sitting there "drinking" our OF a lady came to us and asked us our names. We told her we had already checked it the man and she cut us off to curtly tell is "he is just a server, what is your names."

The food was so-so and the service by "the server" was great

Noisy and gaudy. A bottle of sparkling water was $10, appetizer, a lump of crab meat $22, a scoop of ordinary vanilla ice cream was $10, food was ordinary and when I called the manager about prices, she was rude. Would noit go there again and would advise friends to stay away. These are other Italian restyin town which are better value and more pleasant to dine in.
