“Excellent Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2014

Went there with my husband and 10 and 11 year old daughters. The place is small so it got crowed really fast and our waitress was a bit overwhelmed but service was still ok. The food was really good and the bread was excellent. Had the Spaghetti and meatballs (amazing meatballs) and the bolognaise was really good too. My daughters had the pizza and it was quite disappointing, clearly not their specialty. Dont miss the chance to go down the road to Presti's for dessert.

“Loved the food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2014

Food was fanastic as was the service. We started off with 2 different soups and one salad which were all terrific. The gnocchi and the baked vegetables entrees were both great. The one entree which we didn't care for too much was the pasta with basil which didn't have that good of flavor - not by any means bad, just not nearly as good. Service was excellent.

“Lovely restaurant in Little Italy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2014

We have been to Mia Bella twice now. The service was great - the waiter remembered us on our return trip which is always nice. Ask questions or for suggestions - both waiters we have had were very knowlegeable about the menu. It has a pleasant atmosphere in a wonderful neighborhood. There is a middle eastern influence on the food which we really have enjoyed, along with the more typical Italian foods. Be sure to try the housemade hot sauce. It is fantastic. The food was nicely seasoned and well cooked. We have tried other restaurants in the neighborhood and think this is definitely in the top 3.

“Dependable Italian neighborhood spot...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2014

We've visited here several times. There are lots of choices in Little Italy but we enjoy the variety. Most any of their pasta dishes, their penne with prosciutto or their pasta bolognese are quite good and we often have one of their house soups as a starter. The wait staff is generally pleasant and accommodating. Seating is not too crowded. An easy place to enjoy a tasty meal.

“Not that great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2014

There are so many choices in Little Italy, I'm not sure I would rush back here. Nice ambience, but I thought pricing was a bit overboard for Pasta.
