Pretty old world Italian setting. Quiet and very romantic.
The service was polite professional and extremely attentive.
The menu selections were original regional Italian cuisine. Everything was prepared perfectly with distinctive Italian seasonings. Compliments to an outstanding chef.
Serving portions were generous. Prices were acceptable for such terrific gourmet fare.

Me, my wife and family will definitely return soon.

Sorry to have to write this, but the noise level was terrible. You could not hear yourself think. We wanted coffee and dessert, so our waitress, who was lovely got us a table in the window area. Better, but still noisey. It’s a shame since the food is good, on the expensive side and staff are very nice.

Our waiter was professional, well spoken and pleasant but the real story here is the food. The dishes are innovative and delicious. My only critique is that the chairs are not very comfortable and when the restaurant is full the noise level is quite high. But definitely worth a try.

Two of the four of us wanted to have a specific menu item (as a matter of fact, that's how I got my husband to go there - for that one dish). It was not on the new menu (which wasn't reflected on the internet). Mima staff was very apologetic and gave us something to try to make up for it, but I suggest you call ahead if you have very picky eaters with you. I had a great meal, so dont let this deter you, just a word to the wise!

Staff should not interrupt to rush to take items off the table while one of the diners is only halfway through meal and making all uncomfortable. This includes removing drink glasses that still have part of the drink just because the answer to the unsolicited question of do you want another drink is no.

Also, please do not be in a rush when taking order or asking for later takeout of leftovers so that mistakes are made as to both.

Although, we had a birthday and mentioned it on reservation and upon arrival, there was no acknowledgement.

I hate to give a negative review, especially since I have had good experiences at this restaurant in the pas.
I am finding the portions going down and the prices going up.
For example, the $15 roasted pear gorgonzola salad was an extremely scant plate of mesclun with maybe 6-7 paper thin pear shavings and a tsp of gorgonzola. I was honestly looking for a hidden camera... it had to be a joke...when we pointed this out we received a side with more pear and gorgonzola. but honestly I will never be able to unsee that ridiculous salad and will forever be thee first place my mind goes when I think of Mima.

Also- My appetizer of anchovies was served as my first course by itself. I would think that anyone with a palate would know to serve bread. Do they really expect me to eat a plate of salty anchovies ?

We were delighted to dine Saturday evening at Mima Vinoteca.
The Restaurant is lovely in beautiful Irvington, NY.
We were comfortable, service was spot on, and the meal was scrumptious.
We would definitely recommend this restaurant and look forward to our next visit.
Good Work Mima Vinoteca and keep it up.
Sincerely,

This place is so quaint and cute. The food is amazing and tastes as if an Italian grandmother just cooked it! So good! I got the spaghetti and meatballs which are fantastic. My fiancé got the chicken parm and although the side of pasta was tiny, he enjoyed the meal. We came here once before and I had penne alla vodka with breaded chicken. It was delicious and a generous portion! I recommend this location for a date or just every day dining.
