“Authentic and plentiful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

LOTS of food in the heart of Little Italy. Service good and ample wine list. The whole block smelled like garlic so it had to be good....and it was. Will go back if in the area again (and take a home a doggy bag).

“Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013 via mobile

Mia Bella was recommended to us and very happy that we listened. It was the best Italian meal we have had in a long time. The service was wonderful and the food was amazing. Would highly recommend the tortellini and the raspberry cheesecake gelato. Be sure to make a reservation! The place was packed all evening and they were forced to turn people away. Also, request an outside table, weather permitting. Great place to people watch but still enjoy a fabulous meal.

“Best Italian meal that can rival NYC little Italy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

We had a wonderful meal here on a Sunday night. There is outdoor seating and indoor bistro type seating.The atmosphere is casual. We started with the beet salad and arugula salad. We followed that with the fish special in a tomato puree sauce over fresh vegetables and a homemade pasta mushroom dish with wine. Service was cordial but sporadic. We were not asked if we'd like another glass of wine and bread was not brought to the table until we asked twice.
We did not have dessert. Nonetheless this is a must go to restaurant while in Cleveland.

“Superb!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

I do not give 5 star ratings easily, in fact it's hard to get beyond 3.
First, the sauce spectacular. An Italian restaurant must have great sauce.
Pasta perfect.
Mussels fresh and perfect.
Service top notch. Veal braciole a wonderful delight.
Nice selection of Ialian wines.

“Best Italian Dinner in Cleveland”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

Had one of the best dinners in a long time at Mia Bella. Started with bruschetta and beet salad, both were excellent, but the scallops dish was amazing. Just wish we had room for cannolies. Would definitely go back
