About Us

Mimmo fell in love with Destin after a vacation in the area, and decided to open an Italian restaurant called Mimmo’s. Since opening, Mimmo’s has become an icon in Destin, winning “Best of Emerald Coast” twice and many other awards too numerous to mention. A second location has just opened in Blue Mountain Beach on 30A. Mimmo purchased the land and built the restaurant from the ground up. The 30A restaurant shares the same menu as the original Mimmo’s, but with a stylish new decor. The new interior may feel to some like a beautiful combo of an old world dining hall and American modern farmhouse. Mimmo is so excited to share his dishes, full of love with locals and visitors alike.


"We had an exceptional dining experience at Mimmo’s 30a! The cheesy bread was a delightful start, followed by the mouthwatering spaghetti with meatballs and delicious pizza. The Tiramisu was the perfect sweet ending. The staff and chefs were not only skilled but also incredibly kind. Five stars for an unforgettable evening of fantastic food and hospitality! 10/10 recommend and I can’t wait to come back!"

“First time patrons! What a welcome surprise. We are vacationing on 30A, and neighbors suggested Mimmo's. Never thinking we could get a table for 2, on New Years eve, the hostess did find us a table. The start of a wonderful dining experience! Beautiful restaurant, and decorated for the holidays. The waiter was not only attentive, we never felt rushed! Not even on New Years eve! From appetizer to dessert. DELICIOUS! Learned the owner/chef from Sicily. That explains why every dish was fabulous! This is coming from a kid who grew up in an Italian neighborhood in Bklyn! Italian mother in law other who cooked Sunday feasts. I know good Italian cooking! The pizza was delicious!I can't wait to go back! 'Try it, you’ll like it!'"

"I’ve been to Italy last year and this food is the closest you’ll get to be eating back there. Strong rich thick savory bites each time! I had the lobster pappardelle vodka sauce dish and it was not a mistake. My family had some other great dishes. Highly recommend this spot and bring the family too! Great night out. Amazing food, service, and beautiful interior design to enjoy!”
