Set in a beautiful country location. The chef / owner is a lovely gentle man who will bend over backwards to ensure you feel looked after. His English is very good. I had the Lasagna my wife the Cannelloni. The owners knowledge on local wine was very good.

This is a restaurant in the tiny town of Mercatale. There is no menu - you have options from whatever is being cooked that day. The service was very good - the good tasty but not outstanding. Important to note that they do not accept credit cards - there was no sign saying that and luckily we had enough cash. All in all a good restaurant but on the expensive side.

Family-style restaurant serving a set menu. The antipasti, particularly the melon, was outstanding. The pasta dishes were good, but I found the pasta cooked a bit beyond al dente. Lasagna was good, but nothing special. The noodles in fresh mushroom sauce were intensely flavored and tasty, though a bit more mushroomy than I prefer. The grilled beer was good, and properly done; tasty enough but nothing special. The grilled veggies, of which there were three varieties, were superb as were the fresh string beans. The Tiramisu dessert was absolutely flawless.

Service was friendly and warm, particularly the grill chef. Mimmi herself sat in the kitchen throughout, supervising and tasting--we had a table where we could watch the kitchen--much fun!

All in all, a nice dinner--but no better than most, and you can do better--sometimes way better--with other restaurants in the area. If you like this family style approach, and would like rather better dishes, try Boca al Lupo. It's a bit difficult to find, and you need reservations beforehand, but it's well worth it and a bit less expensive than Mimmi's.

Our family and friends came for a wonderfull authentic Italian dinner. Served in traditional style there was a lot to eat and the food was magnificent Very quiet at this time of the year, on a weeknight we just thought maybe a little background music would be nice.

We knew we had found a simple little gem when the wine list consisted of white red or rose .

A lunch of the dishes of the day, simple, very tasty, and very good value.

The highlight being a courgette and courgette flower tagliatelle which frankly I though sounded dull, but was anything but, how do you get so much subtle flavours into such a simple dish, rustic simple cooking doesn't get any better.

Two courses, a jug of house white, coffee's, all for €45

Spectacular value!
