Very Good

My wife and I had delicious meals, good wine, and good service at a reasonable cost. Spaghetti and meat balls were good, vegetable and noodles were great. Nice location in Little Italy. Good salads too.

Even though I had heard good things about Mia Bella, it was never on my list of places that I "had" to try. What a mistake that was! Yesterday, I took my wife and daughter to Mia Bella for dinner and had a wonderful overall meal--food and service. Mia Bella is truly a different restaurant than what you typically find... More

If you have time for only one restaurant in Little Italy, this is it! We were so pleasantly surprised by everything from the excellent food to the ambiance, service and price. My husband and I shared their award-winning Cheese Tortillini and recommend it highly. We also had a Margharitta Pizza and the Zuppa di Casa, which is a chicken, rice... More

Mia Bella is apparently the crown jewel of Little Italy. Honestly, I was more impressed with this neighborhood than the Little Italies in Chicago and New York. All the food we had was great. Only negative was a 20 minute wait despite having reservations.

This was our second visit to Cleveland and our second visit to Mia Bella. The food, ambience and service were outstanding. My son ordered the past bianco and I ordered the tortellini pomadoro. We both loved our choices (but I think mine was better). This was one of the best meals I've ever eaten!!

I ordered ravioly with spicey sause and I forget what it was called (see photo). But prior to that I sat at the bar and after could t make up mind on wine the barter offered a sample of handful of different red wines. I thought this was a noble gesture. When the food came I moved to a table... More

Great Italian food in a vintage setting. Lots of character to the ambiance. Server was excellent. Best mozzarella and tomato salad I have ever had. I had the Tortellini and Mia Bella's special fairly spicy red sauce. A great dish. Prices are mid range. This place is worth going out of your way for.

Mia Bella is a small family owned place in Little Italy. We arrived at 5 pm not thinking we would need reservations. The place was not busy. They offered us a table provided we could leave by 6:30. Within a short time the place was packed. The atmosphere is very friendly. It feels like a neighborhood gathering place. Our server... More

Located just off University Circle in the Little Italy part of Cleveland. Service was professional and helpful in every way.We sat outside and enjoyed the aromas passing by. My wife had their signature shrimp dish served in a incredible cream sauce. My pasta was steaming hot and perfectly cooked. Our waitress had an excellent knowledge of the neighborhood which was...
