We ate here the night before the Houston marathon. As you might imagine, any Italian restaurant would be crowded the night before a marathon. The place was packed with large groups. We had a reservation and they show us right to our table. Our server took our drink orders promptly and told us about the specials. I started with a... More

We arrived by coincidence just looking for a place to eat pasta. The server was very friendly, very professional and the food was great. We had such a great time that we came back today for lunch once again and the service was even better. The place was not full and we were lucky to find parking nearby. Food portion... More

We hadn't been here in several years and it will be a long time before we go back. We had the Mahi Mahi special and it was terrible. The service was equally bad.

Debating the best restaurant in downtown Houston for a special, early evening treat for our three granddaughters prior to taking them to a performance of the Nutcracker, I suggested we go to Mia Bella Trattoria because I had enjoyed a number of meals there in past years. Having booked a table for five via OpenTable, we arrived a few minutes... More

Downtown Houston is dead on a Saturday morning, and it was impossible to find a spot for an 'early' breakfast, so we decided to do the Brunch here. Even though we arrived a few minutes early, we were warmly welcomed, and we the first patrons of the day. Service was a bit slow, but I blame this on us arriving... More

My wife and I were there to meet out son's future in-laws for dinner. It is a small place, but true Italian style. The food was amazing and moderately priced. The service was of the highest quality. It was a great place for two family to get to know each other, and enjoy a great meal together. This a place... More

Stayed downtown and this restaurant was recommended by hotel concierge. Was not disappointed. Prices good, and pasta was excellent. Will definitely go back.

Good food, dining room is loud. Service was a little slow. Hostess tried to seat us right next to other diners - the tables are quite close together - though there were many tables open.

I am a Mia Bella fan, usually eat at Vintage Park location. Food is yummy at all locations but they miss the boat in fast service, informed servers, and attentive staff. Servers have zero energy, do not know specials also the "bar" Happy Hour does not apply at tables? This is a very small location, how are you still open?... More
