Mimì e Cocò • Rome

The reason why we decided to go to Mimì e Cocò was my craving for risottos.

We needed a place close to our accomodation and their good reviews online seemed to us a promising choice.
So, why not try it out?!

It’s a relatively small place, working more as a bar than as a restaurant to be honest, but they offer a good variety of dishes, such as pasta, pizzas and risottos (😍).

My order

Our idea was to have a small meal that evening, so we decided to go only with the first course as follows:

  • Mine: funghi risotto.
  • Hubby: spinach and ricotta ravioli.

Hubby loved his ravioli. I tried a bit and indeed was yum!

My risotto on the other hand, despite of being flavoursome it was overcooked, almost like a porridge texture. 😭

Speaking of the portion sizes, they were enough for a somewhat light dinner.

I don’t know about you, but Italian portions are usually huge and we were having some trouble to fit in all the food we wanted to try. há 😆

The verdict

The food was good overall (despite my porridge-style risotto 😜).

But it wasn’t remarkable, so I don’t know if I would come back for a meal.

I believe if you want to have some drinks and appetisers this is a great place, but for dinner or lunch I’d give it a miss.

At the occasion, staff looked a bit rude and inattentive, but easily able to understand English.
