I hosted a business meeting at Mia Bella and everything was excellent. Our server was exceptional as was the food. The atmosphere was also very good. I highly recommend Mia Bella for any occasion!

Diverse menu with interesting blend of feta and greek olives along side basil and tomatos. Share the calamari and mussels. Both were excellent and served zuppe style in a broth of rose sauce with sauted zuchinni. Sat outside and enjoyed the sounds of Sinatra and people watching. Service was excellent. Oh, and make sure you get plenty of fresh italian... More

Excellent dinner, good service, but we sat outside and got dripped on from the building into my dinner and drink. Asked for the manager and our server told me "lucky for you I am a manager". I voiced my concern in regards to the water splashing off the building into what I consumed. I was given a bushed off backhanded... More

Loved it, very cute and romantic place to be. Went there with family. My favorite dish is cheese tortellini.

Lovely restaurant with both indoor and outdoor seating availability. We were looking for some good Italian food, after a day at the Rock and Roll HOF. We found it at Mia Bella. The pasta was fresh and the choices were plenty. My wife had the Farfalle Bolognese, and I had the Shrimp Scampi over linguine. Both dishes came out hot.... More

Top notch food! The calamari appetizer with zucchini and tomato sauce was amazing. In fact everything; bread, butter, beet salad, lamb chops and shrimp pesto pasta dish was great. Heads up! We asked to split the salad and were charged a plating fee! That fee should have been explained at the time of ordering!

This was recommended to us from the front desk at the Glidden House and was just a short 15 minute walk to the restaurant. We were lucky to get a table outside and got to enjoy the atmosphere of the neighbourhood including watching the valets hard at work..definitely recommend that you valet park if driving there! We ordered the brushetta... More

I am Italian and food critic ....this is the true story about Mia Bella. First, this restaurant is far away from being an Italian restaurant. The famous Shrimp Saganaki that has won as best appetizer somewhere has nothing.....really nothing to do with Italy.....it is a dish without identity. I ordered a pasta with Prosciutto that came extremely salty and with... More

A short walk away from University Circle, this is a gem on the main avenue that is Cleveland's Little Italy. This Italian gem shows Greek influence on the menu, which resulted in some unique and tasty dishes. The bread is nothing short of outstanding - served hot and fresh - crunchy on the outside, and perfect in the center. Service... More

Six of us recently dined at Mia Bella. We were in Cleveland for a convention and the restaurant was recommended. We were not disappointed in the least. Our server had a grand sense of humor and kept us well served. All had different meal items and starters and each raved about the taste. Use the valet parking as regular parking... More
