Traveling to Cleveland most time it's dinner at the hotel and that can get a bit old. Having some time to venture out I made my way to Little Italy and was told that all of the restaurants will provide you with a good meal. Mia Bella exceeded my expectations! I ordered a veal dish and it was prepared very... More

There are many great restaurants in Little Italy but this is our favorite. Food is always amazing. Staff is very attentive.

The ambiance beats the food. The shrimp and cheese appetizer (won awards) is pretty good. I am a tough critic coming from an Italian family. We had the gnoccis, chicken cacciatore and tortellini dishes - all were mediocre. We took home the leftovers yet left them behind in the hotel. The staff is friendly and entertaining - good personalities!

Staff is great. Wine fair at best. Bread was just plain Italian bread I could have bought at grocery store. Was disappointed based on the reviews I had read.

We had a few hours to kill after a Saturday afternoon college visit and chose Little Italy as our destination. Totally charming neighborhood! We randomly chose Mia Bella for a late lunch and were so pleased that we did. We split a Caesar salad, the chefs special pizza and the cheese tortellini. The portions were generous, the server was attentive... More

Mia Bella was a new spot for us and we were not disappointed. All the traditional atmosphere of Cleveland's Little Italy district is combined with some of the best Italian food we've ever had. Fresh, tender gnocchi, tangy marinara sauce, good wine selections & outstanding customer service were all served up in abundance. This is not a large restaurant, so... More

We ordered 2 dishes of pasta and both were excellent. It has some spicey ingredient in the sauce and it was simply amazing. The atmosphere is very cozy and cute. I would recommend the restaurant for the special occasions or first date. There was nothing special about the bread though. The price was reasonable also. I would visit there again.

Once upon a time, locals went nowhere but Little Italy for Italian food. Then, the restaurants went downhill and good Italian could only be found in suburbs. Now, the suburban places are going the way of many Italian restaurants, while Little Italy has restored its reputation. Only a few years old, Mia Bella is the best Italian in Little Italy... More

We had a very relaxing and enjoyable meal. Our waitres Lily was very sweet, knowledgeable about the menu and was very attentive. I had the Baked Veggies with chorizo that was delicious! My husband had the Cheese Tortellini with chicken that he said was awesome. Just a touch spicy. We will definitely go back!

My son and I love to visit different Cleveland area restaurants. This was our first time in Little Italy and we just took a chance and came here. Everything from the greeting when we came in the door, to the food, to our wonderful waiter ...was perfect. It was a special evening, and I want to thank you for the... More
