- a blog about food and value


  1. Sorry i have to disagree with you, I live beside it and have had pizza 3 times from there. I haven’t had any other dishes from there so wont comment on those. I agree the price is very attractive, and the staff were friendly. Its pizzas are terrible. ” easily the best i’ve ever had in Ireland, and as good of the best of the best pizza’s in Italy”. I question your tastebuds. Have you ever been to Italy or had pizza before!? I think the integrity of this ‘post’ is in question. I trusted this site, undecided after reading that.

  2. Hi Neil, interested to hear what other readers think of Don Mimi. Spent a few weeks in Italy this summer and definitely thought Don Mimi matched up. It’s pretty popular with everyone I know, but each to his own! ps Pizzas I hate: Domino’s, Goodfellas, 4 star etc.

  3. Have to say I agree with Neil. I live locally and I’ve been in a couple of times and I havent been impressed.

  4. Neil and Gavin, out of curiousity why have you been 2/3 times if the food isnt good?!

  5. Neil, your response reminded me of the opening lines of this article 🙂

    “Xiaolongbao, like pizza, is one of those divisive foods that’s almost too annoying to talk about. Everyone has an OPINION, and everyone is RIGHT, and everyone ELSE is a degenerate hayseed with the palate of a sucking chest wound.”

  6. HI Jean, After my first poor experience, i went again to be fair, i thought it might have been a once off. I have heard since that it had changed management and that was when the pizzas there started to go downhill. Babara i agree it is quite a subjective thing, but to receive praise like Peters, i believe it really has to match up to those standards. And to be honest i wish it did. I didnt mean to be so irate, i like this site and other reviews of places i went had been more less on the money. The overstated compliments just seemed a bit suspicious to me. Anyways it’s tough to beat making your own pizza from scratch 😀

  7. Sorry guy’s … but pizza there was nice wen Paolo the man make that plays famous … After that was not real Italian speciali wen pizza chef was Romanian

  8. It used to be fantastic – it was easily the best pizza I’d ever had in Ireland. Popped in the other day and what we got was almost inedible, plus the ‘deli section’ was miserably depressing. It’s such a shame because it really was something special when it opened first.

  9. Mystery seems solved here – it was some time back when I went so it must have changed hands since. I’m reluctant to try it again but will report back if I do!

  10. Back again last night. Mediocre pizza with so-so toppings. Squandered potential: what a shame.

  11. Don Mimi has been closed for a few weeks – a real shame, however in the last year or so the quality of food had nosedived, so no real surprise.
