We were visiting the area and ate here on recommendation of hotel clerk. So pleased. Everything was wonderful. Place was not fancy but was clean. Service was really good. We were not expecting the quality and taste we experienced. Awesome.

Incredibly fresh salad bar. Food was really good. At the waitress’ recommendation, ordered the walnut and mushroom ravioli in tomato cream sauce. It was wonderful. Food and service always good here! We will be back !!

I’m from Jersey, which means I know good Italian food, and this place is legit! I really enjoyed their chicken parmigiana. It was like being home.

There are about six four-tops, three six-tops, and maybe 8 to 10 four top booths. The four-page menu was not the easiest to understand, so I had a lot of questions for our server (Kelly W), who turned out to be not only VERY knowledgeable...More

If you are looking for Authentic Italian food, look no further. This place is it. Mimma is an exception chef and a true Italian. Her "Specials of the Day" are excellent. Great salad bar as well. Good wine selection.

We go to Joe and Mimma's every Friday evening when we are is town. My wife Helen and I love the weekly specials. We specially love the fish and sea food specials. Mimma's cooking is the best. So lucky to have her.

Wonderful Italian restaurants with all the "feel good" foods. They have a large salad bar and quiet seating. The lasagna was served hot and very delicious. Service was good. My husband frequents here often due to racing at VIR. My first time. We will return.

Traveling through Danville and stopped because of reviews. Delicious. Definitely would stop again. A spectacular special of pistachio pesto penne with prosciutto. Fresh salad bar. Our waitress, Rasheen, was perfect.

Hi Catreena and happy holidays. Joe and Mimma's is a great place for dining but I don't believe they are equipped with a separate dining area that would accommodate parties and events. Another restaurant to possibly consider... More

Mimma's has a room that can be & frequently is reserved. However I don't know it's capacity. Worth a call. Good for you, getting such an early start!
