This restaurant was recommended by a friend. We don't usually go to Italian restaurants because often the food is the same old, same old. However, since we were at another function within walking distance decided to give it a try and are glad we did. The veal and the scallop dishes were outstanding. Our waitress was friendly and competent. We... More

Overall the experience was alright. We arrived at 5:30 pm without a reservation and were promptly sat in roughly 5 minutes. The server, already forgot his name, seemed a little nervous if not new, which is completely fine with my family as long as there were mistakes on our food as my father has a nut allergy (albeit a severe...

The food is very good but the services is awful. When we dined, there were four parties total in the restaurant with three servers. Our Server would disappear and then another server would ask what we ordered. I would recommend the food. Call ahead and order to go.

We actually ended up visiting both Mia Bella Houston locations because we liked the food very much. Homemade, excellent quality. On Sundays, go early for the $5 drink specials - excellent frozen bellinis!

We took our 15 yr old boys volleyball team for dinner here - 20 in all - and the staff here did a great job. They got us all fed in a reasonable time, no screw ups on the bill and the food was really good too! I am gluten free and the GF pasta was delicious. Even did a... More

Stopped in for a bite. The pizza was fine, the wine selection adequate. What stood out was the lack of warmth expressed by the staff. I felt that we were an imposition. I'd find somewhere else next time.

Went on a Friday evening at 7:00. Only about a third of the tables were occupied. They sat us in a small area outside the dining room which we didn't like. It seemed like an overflow spot and we were alone in there. Would have much preferred the main dining room where they were plenty of empty tables. Service was... More

AWESOME prices for the brunch drinks and great servers. $2.95 for items on the brunch menu. Tried everyone and some more than once.

We dined here on a Friday evening without a reservation & were seated immediately. Noticing all the great reviews I wondered what happened. The place is small & quaint. The service is very good. The food however was disappointing. For starters we had the Insalata Caprese. The tomatoes were flavorless & the mozzarella wasn't anything special. We also had a... More

We wanted to have pasta at a good place. Was on our way (walking) to another place we frequent but saw this and decided to stop. I do not know what we were thinking when we decided to eat outside. It was too cold, and we weren't really prepared - I was, but not hubby. The atmosphere was nice. I... More
