Another great option is also an authentic Italian experience with a wood-fired oven. Why not cozy up to the pizza bar here, watch the Italian pizza chef toss the handmade dough, and warm up by the pizza oven? Only the freshest ingredients are served for the most delectable experience. Toppings include caramelized onions, fire-roasted red peppers, Prosciutto de Parma, Genova salami, meatballs etc. Mimmo’s has by far my favorite vegetarian pizza!
