Mia Passione is a local Italian restaurant with a big city atmosphere! Linens and candles don the tables yet Mia's provides a neighborhood feel that is perfect for friends and families! Every dish whether pasta, steak, or salads are meticulously prepared from homemade family recipes....The fish is fresh and you can't beat the fresh bread prepared in the stone oven when you enter. Cocktails are abundant and wine choices are wonderful!! The staff is attentive and friendly....you will feel like a "regular" after just one visit! I highly recommend Mia Passione!!More

I moved out of the area 5 years ago, and when i come in to visit my daughter she always takes me to local restaurants because i miss the great restaurants in Chicago. I rarely go out for Italian food because i feel mine is...always better. This restaurant kills it! The Pizza out of the pizza oven in the front of the restaurant was perfect, Appetizer of banana peppered stuffed with sausage was yummy and every entree was great in its own way. I had Sea Bass Francaise, there was meatballs and salad (very Italian) Veal Francaise and a Special of Braised Short Rib Ravioli which i thought was the star of the whole meal. The ravioli was in a mushroom cream sauce which did not overpower the rich flavor of the short rib in the ravioli. It was truly amazing. Did i Mention the wait staff is also really good? They are. Every time I visit Chicago, I will request a visit to this very local gemMore

Can't wait to go back!More

Wow the food here is outstanding. We have been 3 times in the last couple of months and have never gotten anything bad. The staff is great. Sammy took care of us and made sure everything was perfect. If you are looking for a romantic...night or a night out with friends this is a must. They also host a paint and pour night that is loads of fun. It’s Italian food that my Italian mother in law could have made. We have had the vodka pasta, the shrimp and scallops, the chicken parmigiana and the calzones. The seafood here is exceptional. Once you try this place you won’t want to go anywhere else.More

Small but quaint Italian restaurant, with great martinis, the meatballs are the best I ever had, the woodfire pizzas are delicious, can't really go wrong with anything on the menu. My wife and I love this little gold mine.

Have you ever been to a fantastic restaurant and wondered what it was doing in that particular area? Mia Passione is sure to cause that reaction. From the creative cocktails and martini menu to the fabulously authentic dishes, they hit a home run. Still, I...can't help but feel they're a major league team playing in a minor league ballpark. Best advise I can give everyone is "Get over it". Just try it. You won't be disappointed. But don't expect Italian/American comfort food. It's not who they are. They're better than that.More

First time at this restaurant and we were very happy with everything. One of the owners was always around to make sure we were satisfied with the meal and if there was anything we needed.

Visited here with Paul and Kathie. The welcome was second to none. Constant attention from our server, always checking on drink levels and that our food was okay. The restaurant has a New York feel to it. Rat Pack pictures abound. The decor is wonderful....I'd recommend anything on the menu. Wonderful job everyone, I look forward to returning on my next visit to Chicago.More

My husband went here for dinner about a month ago without me. When he told me about it he said, "I have to take you to this place!!". We went for dinner this week and it's a gorgeous little place. Completely new, modern, classy little...family restaurant which was very clean. I loved the decor and the food. We were there with our 3 year old who loved the pasta and chocolate ice cream. My husband got the pork chop special which he raved about. I had the egg plant parm and it was probably the best egg plant parm i've ever ordered in a restaurant before. So happy there is another great neighborhood place to go to. We will definitely be back :)More

I did a party for 35 people at this restaurant and I must say that from the time we walked in to the time we left which by the way was 1am we felt like family. I ordered Fried Calamari sausage and peppers and meatballs...for apps they were all outstanding. For the main dishes I order Sea Bass the best I every had anywhere. I also ordered for my group veal and chicken dishes they were cooked perfectly I want to thank Mike and Karen for treating us so well. Everyone was amazed by how hard they work and still have time to speak to almost everyoneMore

Went with friends on their recommendation - first and last time. Server was friendly but seemed to be doing us a favor taking care of us.(CLUE NUMBER ONE) There were only three tables occupied at a busy dinner hour (CLUE NUMBER TWO) Prices were stiff...(#3) and there were help wanted signs up on the windows (#4). When my Veal Marsala came with no marsala reduction and no mushrooms, I asked why. I was told that's our recipe(#5). I was raised on good Italian food. This place doesn't have it. Far superior places in the neighborhood. Don't botherMore
