We decided to try this Bistro for dinner. We started wi the three cheese bruschetta. Excellent
Next was the Quinoa Soup
Again Very Good

I had the eggplant Parmesan and my wife had the chicken Marsala.
Again both were excellent.
We will be returning!!

After hearing grat things about the restaurant, we decided to head over on Tuesday night. We got there, and I was surprised to see it was located in a type of a strip mall, but we went in, and had a seat. There were only about two other tables of people there, and the ambiance was lovely with alternating Latin and Italian music. The waiter was very kind, and the service was pretty quick! The salad was a delicious foreshadow of the good meal to come. I had the veal, and I can honestly say it was one of the best meals of my life. It was cooked just right, and the sauce was complementary and delicious. I highly recommend stopping in, and we will be back when we return to Florida!!

We were in a group of 6 dining at Mina's Bistro last week. We all had received a mailing which included various discounts including 15% off with the purchase of a beverage. We had heard good reports and decided to try the restaurant. After ordering wine, we placed our entree order and mentioned to the waiter that we all had the 15% off coupons. We were told that the coupon was valid for only ONE couple at the table, did not apply to each holder of the coupon and did not apply to the total bill for the table. Moving to separate tables was not an option. While the food was good, this decision as to the application of the discount coupons was misleading and unsettling. What should have been a delightful evening out for three couples became something less. Many other area restaurants offer good food, good service and valid discounts. Will probably not return as a result of this experience.

Found it by accident. We were going to a different restaurant in the same strip mall, saw the sign and decided to give it a try. Mainly Latin and Italian cuisine.
While quite small, it has a broad menu featuring mostly sandwiches, salads and pasta dishes.
Lunch prices range from $6 to $9 for most items. Wine is available; no liquor.
We had the Pepos Quesadilla and the Grouper Sandwich. Both were generous portions, well seasoned, with nice presentations. Ordered the Rice Pudding for dessert and it was "to die for".
Service was a bit slow, which may be due to the kitchen trying to prepare-to-order too many different items with a small staff.
The Dinner Menu and Wine List appeared over-priced considering the surrounding area and lack of ambiance.
We will definitely return and would recommend to others.
