My hubby and I were serendipitously surprised on a recent Sunday outing to San Diego's downtown Little Italy district when we happened upon the delightful Mimmo's Italian Village Restaurant.
Oh my; it was like taking a quick (faux) trip to Italy!
You'll see what I mean if you follow along here ....
Mimmo's has been there since 1973 and that in itself is amazing considering how many restaurants quickly come and go in San Diego.
It's HUGE, with a multiple rooms that seamlessly connect, creating one big charming space.
What a creative vision of the owners to create an entire little "village" restaurant!
Most of the walls are faux paintings and are just lovely in person.
And there are several rooms to dine privately with your group, yet still be amidst the festive bustle of the overall bigger restaurant.
Obviously, my hubs enjoyed Mimmo's too!
My wonderful salad was the only diet food on the menu, I'm afraid.
My Eggplant Parmesan was to die for and they can do gluten-free noodles for those of you who need that. Or they will put the Eggplant Parmesan on top of other veggies for you too if you prefer. Nice.
My hubs loved his pasta too.
And their prices are very reasonable, which made it an extra nice treat.
We were there on a sunny Sunday afternoon and I think at night it must be oh-so-romantic!
I hope you enjoyed my little tour of San Diego's Mimmo's "faux Italy!"
