Using his experience as founding member of the global Italian chain 'Fratelli la Bufala', Mimmo has decided to move forward with his own brand - 'Mimmo La Bufala'.
Now an "indispensable fixture of hampstead" (Hardens 2012), the restaurant serves healthy and traditional Southern Italian cuisine with a contemporary flare.
With many awards and nominations over the last 8 years, Mimmo's restaurant showcases the gastronomic heritage of Naples with critically acclaimed pizzas, pasta, fish and meat dishes. Unlike many other restaurants that claim to cook pizzas the Italian way, Mimmo's real wood-fired oven ensures extraordinarily tasty and authentic pizzas, using the finest, Italian toppings.
