Da Mimmo’s Restaurant Review Theresa March 12, 2017 Leisure, Restaurants 39 Comments If you’re visiting the Inner Harbor in Baltimore, plenty of chain restaurants line the waterfront. From pizza to crab cake, you can find everything your family wants in a quick meal. For a treat, venture a block further into Little Italy. After walking the streets of this cozy neighborhood, you can enjoy delicious, authentic Italian cooking. Whether you’re looking for a date spot or a family friendly meal, Da Mimmo’s is an excellent choice. Da Mimmo’s Restaurant Review Not only is the location convenient to the attractions of the Inner Harbor, but walking through Little Italy also offers a cultural experience that both children and adults can enjoy. Step into this neighborhood to discover festively painted bocci courts, the beautiful stained glass of St. Leo Roman Catholic Church, and the incredible food at Da Mimmo’s Restaurant. Authentic Italian Appetizers After a long morning exploring the city, I was happy to enjoy several appetizers with my family. We had all worked up quite the appetite! One of my favorite appetizers to share in an Italian restaurant is calamari. With a crispy texture and a flavorful side of marinara dipping sauce, this one didn’t disappoint. Even my daughter, who had never eaten calamari before, couldn’t get enough of it. Since we have homemade French onion soup once a month (read our family recipe here), the Tuscan onion soup was an interesting, Italian twist on a common dish. With the mild taste of Grana Padano cheese mixed with the rich flavor of the prosciutto, the soup was a tasty and light appetizer that isn’t too filling to have before your meal. My favorite of the three appetizers was the Eggplant Soufflé. I loved letting my fork dive into the multiple layers of the dish. Since the dish was cooked in a Vodka sauce, it had a distinct flavor much different from the marinara in my entree. Outside, it was very cold, but this dish warmed me up and was very satisfying. Flavorful Entrees Although the menu offered a wide range of sea food, I decided to try the Homemade Meat Lasagna. This hearty meal had an incredible marinara sauce, plenty of cheese, and deliciously flavored meat. The serving size was so generous that I brought half of it home. I was very happy with my choice of entree. At an Italian restaurant, you have to try the meatballs, a classic staple of any Italian meal. Even though I tasted the flavor of capers in the meatballs (a more Southern Italian style than we usually have), my daughter ate almost her entire dish. For a child, the pasta dish was very big, but she loved it! We also ordered the Veal Chops, a specialty that the restaurant is known for since it was voted Best of Baltimore Veal Chop. My husband, who doesn’t typically order veal, went with the waitress’ recommendation and tried the dinner special. The entree was big enough for two. With very tender meat, the veal had an excellent flavor. Tasty Desserts The waitress told us all the dessert was locally made. She highly recommended the chocolate chip cannoli – which has a delicious, cinnamon-flavored shell – and the in-house made cheesecake. When she walked in with a cannoli lit for my daughter’s birthday, it seemed like the perfect location to celebrate this occasion. We saw several other families celebrating special occasions there as well. Overall, everything was well prepared and had a delicious flavor. Since the price for the dinner menu was more than we would usually spend, we would wait to come again for special occasions. After the large meal, we enjoyed walking the streets of Little Italy. For a fun outing, you can see the beautiful lights in the neighborhood at the upcoming Light City 2017 event.

Reply karen March 13, 2017 Everything looks so super yummy and wish I lived in Baltimore to try out this Italian restaurant! I can imagine how delish that lasagna was! Reply Sara Broers March 13, 2017 Those veal chops really caught my eye. I understand how you felt ordering lasagna when you can have all the seafood you love. Sometimes, it’s better to try what’s not considered the norm in an area. I often think that gives an interesting view of what foods are offered in a particular area. This restaurant looks like a win/win! Everything looks so tasty. Reply Janel March 13, 2017 Looks like you guys had a fun outing. This restaurant looks delicious and the photos are amazing .
