Sal & Mimma's Italian Restaurant opened on September 7th, in place of Luigi's Italian Restaurant, at 15400 Warwick Blvd on Warwick Boulevard in the Denbigh area of Newport News.  The restaurant offers dine-in and carry-out Italian cuisine, delivery, online ordering, and catering services.  Sal & Mimma’s also offers daily specials throughout the week and some weekend specials as well.  The home-style restaurant is ideal for family dining and can also serve large groups for special occasions. salms2

Mimma Lopiccolo, who previously owned Anna’s Pizza in Hampton before selling it her youngest son, owns the restaurant along with her son Sal Lopiccolo. Mimma’s knack for the restaurant business comes from years of experience in the industry.  The Lopiccolo family, which included Mimma’s father, uncle, and brother, opened their first restaurant on the Peninsula in 1970.  She also owned Joe and Mimma’s, which closed in June 2016 and was originally named after her and her brother.  Mimma came out of retirement to open Sal and Mimma’s with her son and the duo run the restaurant together.  

Sal & Mimma’s Italian Restaurant offers authentic Sicilian Italian dishes along with a variety of American options.  The menu offers Italian favorites such as Marsala, Cacciatore, Manicotti, Parmigiana, and more.  The restaurant also serves homemade desserts such as Tiramisu, Cannoli’s, and Chocolate Cake.  In January, the restaurant will start wine tasting parties which will include entrees along with the sampling of three different wines.  The owners’ value and place major emphasis on the total customer experience and aim to provide excellent customer service every time.
