The last time I went to go to this restaurant it was closed down. So I do not know who reviewed it in 2014, but last time I went was gone. Website is gone too.

We've been to Mia's quite a few times. The food has always been excellent. Their pasta fagiole soup is great and their cup portion is huge! The bread they serve you before the meal comes is mouthwatering. Service has always been right on, too.

Sicilian is awesome! White pizza was yummy and everyone loved the garlic knots. Ordered pick up so can't really rate other areas but will be ordering again.

This is the only restaurant to visit if your from out of town. Only the smartest locals know that Mia is the only place to go out for real food in Toms River. The food is like nothing else from around here, most of the locals in Toms river just get use to all the super discount restaurants and really... More

First , I can't really say anything about service except for whoever packed our food shouldn't be doing so in anything but tin. The foam box melted , and the juice went all over . Also I don't mind paying for good food but this was by far the worst meal I have ever eaten. My husband veal was horrible... More

Wife and I went for an early Saturday dinner, so the place was pretty much empty. I had the Diver Scallops, my wife the Veal Saltimbocco. 4 large scallops over wasabi mashed potatoes and green beans, with a "sweet chili" sauce. Scallops were fine, wasabi mashed were excellent (never would have thought of wasabi and mashed together, but this side`was... More

My husband and I went out for dinner at Mia's this weekend for the first time. The atmosphere was lovely, romantic, and the this BYO restaurant was a surprise. Its cozy, not too small or large. I would have preferred something else to listen to in a restuarant with this type of atmosphere, to play something other than the top... More

One of the better restaurants in Toms River that honor the Restaurant.com gift certificates. A bit on the pricey side but well worth it for a special occasion. It's a BYOB place. The owner usually greets you at the door. Been there twice and it's been excellent both times. I'll be back many times.

The dining experience was fantastic. The food was delicious with great taste. The owner made a point to stop by our table and start a conversation about his food and offered a few great suggestions. The wedge salad (which is not served really anywhere in Toms River) was fantastic. The Filet was perfect and the decor was great. Overall its... More
