My husband and I came across this restaurant by chance while walking through the Common and what a find. We had tapas which were of the highest quality, the pork buns and calamari were outstanding. The crime brûlée trio was the best I have ever had, quite decadent. If we were locals, this would be... read more

Absolutely delicious food! Went on a Saturday night. No reservation but were still seated right away in an upstairs room. Since it's tapas, we were able to order many different items for a good sampling of the menu. Everything was wonderful! Will definitely return.

Service was outstanding, our family shared delicious chicken satay, two different kinds of salads, and diver's scallops and more. Everything was delicious and a very very nice wine choice. We had a delightful evening, and I didn't go off my Weight Watchers Diet!!

The owner of this restaurant is known in Ithaca for focusing on great food with lovely ambience, and Mia certainly lives up to his reputation. I especially like the fact that appetizers and entrees are wonderfully prepared and presented and once you are eating, your taste buds will rejoice. Diners will find nice twists on Thai and Vietnamese dishes as... More

I'm shocked this great restaurant isn't rated higher. Food and service were excellent tonight. My wife and our two teenagers loved it.

What a great meal we had! I am not sure what the other reviewers are saying about the food not being tasty or just uninspired. My husband and I decided to give Mia a chance despite the uneven reviews, and we are happy we did. We started with several appetizers (tapas, I guess). We shared the pork buns, the marinated...

An excellent introduction to tapas, with very pleasant staff. The food was excellent, with just the right level of spiciness.

Loved the pork buns! Great service, great local beer, and food. Too bad the street is under construction, would like to travel back when it is complete. Going to be great!

An eclectic menu combining Thai, Japanese, Indonesian, and other cuisines. The food was superb, as was the service. Terrific restaurant!

Small but phenomenal. Eclectic selection. The prawn dinner was wonderful. Hubby had the rack of lamb and said it was the best he had ever had. I would go back any time.
