It's Ithaca, so it's quite good.

We stopped in -- even though the Commons is still torn up -- for a meal after dancing at Lot 10. Mia has a diverse selection of tapas or entrees. The quail, shrimp, beet & arugula salad, and sweet potato fries were all very good. Quail and fries were slightly too oily, but delicious. The wine list... read more

had a very early pre-concert dinner here of three tapas hamachi quite tasty (3pc) marinated octopus salad, good but my least favorite and a tinyt but succulent little rock lobster tail with chili sauce, perfectly cooked, meaning not over cooked. That and a glass of local riesling set me back 52 dollars with tip. Woud have loved to have the... More

The food here is very yummy. Prices are a little high and portions are a little small for some dishes, BUT it really is a nice place to go for a treat and to try new foods. There are many items on the menu, so its possible to spend strategically and get a really nice meal without busting your budget.... More

I love Mia's and go there often for the brick oven pizza. I was very disappointed when I ordered the "Chicken Picatta Pasta: Linguini, chicken, mushrooms, capers, and garlic tossed in a lemon white wine butter sauce." I have to say, I could have made a better dish. No garlic, must have forgotten. The chicken had NO flavor, literally bare... More

Mia's has small plates and big plates and so many great options that it is possible to try many of the dishes by ordering a number of them as small plates. We had two vegans and one vegetarian in our party of 6 and there was plenty to choose from for them also, which does not happen often in restaurants!... More

Our group of six ordered at least two small plates each but sorry to say we left hungry. It was all tasty but we should have ordered more. The cocktails were tasty but $10 each. Ambience was pleasant. There are so many great restaurants in Ithaca, I would try another before returning to Mia.

It was the first time there to eat. The menu was a bit pricy but the service was excellent. There were four of us having different things. One had the duck which was plentiful and well prepared. None of us had any alcohol drinks so no comment can be made on this. Each of our servings were sufficient. I have... More

We went there for tapas. We ordered the mussels special. About half of the mussels were not in there. When pointing this out to the guy who brought the food, the tall guy wearing glasses, his response was "Bummer!" When pointing this out to the waiter her question was "how big are mussels supposed to be?" I pointed out that... More
