Great find. I will be back!

We were wandering, looking for a place for 5 of us to eat, when we stumbled on Mia Bella. It was a fabulous. The service was a little slow, but they were busy. I had crepes stuffed with chicken, mushrooms, spinach with a butter sauce. Fabulous. 2 at our table had seafood pasta. They were... read more

I enjoy this restaurant whenever I am at the Houston Quilt Festival however I recommend this restaurant to everyone. You can almost always get a reservation when you want it, the staff is good with recommendations and the food is well prepared and tasty. You leave knowing you enjoyed yourself!

Was disappointed to find the restaurant closed and white paper hanging in the windows last night. Not sure if they're out of business or just closed for the summer?

I've eaten at Mia Bella a couple of times. This visit was prior to a concert so we were in a bit of a rush. I think the kitchen had something going on because the restaurant was pretty smoky when we walked in. But, our server was great, very quick and knew we needed to get out timely. Food was... More

We stopped in before an event we were attending on a Saturday. The restaurant was totally empty. After a long wait for our drinks (water and Diet Coke) our waiter came to take our order. We had decided to just get a salad and some appetizers. We settled on the Insalata Mia Bella, the Bruschetta alla Romana, Torta di Granchio... More

We accidentally stumbled in, lured by the inviting store front and design. The servers worked as a team and were very friendly and genuinely glad to have us as their guests. The menu is varied and the prices are a great value. The seafood dish I had did not skimp on the items and was absolutely delicious! This is our... More

Mia bella is a long standing favorite and rightfully so. The downtown location is in a historic building located near the Preston light rail stop. The price points for both the dinners and wine are more than fair.

We were seated within minutes on a Saturday night without reservations. Which we desperately needed out of the cold rain. Their service was great and knew that their style of food was not exactly Italian or common, but with a modern twist. Our waiter knew about the wine selection well and had no problem answering any questions we had pertaining... More

I would like to give them a 3.5 but TripAdvisor doesn't have that option so I'm giving them a four out of five because they are dog friendly which is a big plus in my book. We looked at the brunch menu the evening before and asked if they would allow our dog so we had a plan the next... More

Everything about the service was strange. First, they told us how lucky we were that a reservation cancellation meant they had room for us, but the restaurant was empty during our entire meal. We waited forever for our Salads and realized the Waiter had forgotten to put the order in. My colleague asked for bread and the waiter said they... More
