are your other reviewers nuts? they do not know pizza. MIMI'S offers quality cheese, crust and tomato sauce. it is one of the finest in NYC. if you like dry cheese, go somewhere else. if you luv the Real Pizza, with cheese that is luscious and drippy and crust cooked perfectly, go to Mimi's. they don't make the slice pies as fresh, mean often as they used to, so sit in the dining area and order your own mini pie or an small or large if you have a friend. Mimi's continues to serve quality ingredients. the other reviews i read are by those who don't know good pizza from liverwurst.

I've been going here for 25 years. OK, let's be honest; it an average pizzeria. It's no better or worse than any other neighborhood place. But, given the area, it's a great value. Quarter bottles of wine are $4.50; domestic bottle beer is $2.75. Where are you going to get that on the Upper East Side? My favorite is the chicken parm. A big portion, nice and gooey.

First time i ordered from them, the person who took the order was really rude and couldn't take my simple "large pie with mushrooms order" right and get my cc information. I should say the pizza was half decent. But I figured to give them a second chance and once again: rude service, telling me that my cc doesn't work when i just used it! But it gets better: when the pizza arrived, it was obviously dropped so that the cheese and olives slided to one side!!! And the whole crust was burned. Even took pictures and wish i could've attached them! Simply disappointing --- will never order from them again...period

It was my first time in NYC, and even though my friend used to live near here, he didn't know the nearest good pizza joint. So we hit up Mimi's pizza, because we figured it would be cheaper than some sandwich shop. The meal started with the server not knowing the difference between bottled water and tap water. We ordered garlic knots, and a large pizza with half onion. The garlic knots came, and immediately I saw how half of them were burnt on top. He handed us a stack of 4 plates, and I took the second one down. I saw that it was dirty, and I pointed this out to him, so he took it around the corner, out of view, and wiped it with a dry towel. I gave up and just went with it. Garlic knots didn't taste too bad, apart from the burntness. Next came our pizza. The onions were almost raw, like they remembered to put them on halfway through the cooking process. The sauce was watery junk. The cheese was nothing to get excited over. The crust was the best part of the pizza, and it was only so-so. The men's bathroom had no soap. The music consisted of a hardcore instrumental jam session, followed by... Chinese music? I thought pizza was Italian? The decoration was decent, until I (a carpenter) saw the half-rate job done on the drop ceiling. You aren't supposed to have tiles that are three inches wide! Overall, a party of four was charged $40, way too much given what we ordered. Given our overall service, Jesse decided to leave a large tip of $2. Then I took half of that and gave it back to him. I hope the server reads this, and remembers our 2.5% tip.

I took my kids to lunch at Mimi's last week when they had a day off. We all loved it. My son said it was the best pizza and that wished we lived closer to get deliveries. I used to be a lunch regular when I lived and went to school in NYC. The crust is excellent and the slices are big. The potato croquetts were good too. Wish we had this place in our neighborhood. We want to go back during break in Feb when we go to the museum.

Heard great things about mimi's, very disappointed. Soggy crust - cheese fell off and canned mushrooms. Will never order from them again
