Don't let the outside fool you! It is tucked away in a strip mall, at Rutland Plaza, easily missed. It has been around a long time, and I, and my family have been enjoying their food for several years! I am Italian, and am picky about where I go to eat. They have a very good gravy/sauce. The portions are so large, you will definitely be able to take home enough for lunch or dinner the next day, or split it with someone. The pizza is VERY good! The subs are all unbelievable! (Hot and cold) They also have special from 11-3, that you just can't beat! They are not small portions either. They have a giant bowl of minestrone soup for $3.85 (Very good)! The bread is hot, and homemade, with that hard, crusty outside, and warm yummy inside. Mmmm! It is a definite must try if you haven't yet!! You won't be disappointed!

Italia Mia was unknown to us until a vacationing Brooklynite sitting next to us at a local watering hole gave us an unequivocal recommendation. "The Sauce is what it's all about" was his comment. Naturally, we gave it a try, and were rewarded with a new entry in our regular restaurant rotation. Yes, the locale, strip mall to be kind, is almost a turn away in ambiance, but get past it for a real treat. Inside is a little dated and more typical of a family run spot than fine dining. But if you came here for the food, prepare to be rewarded. Home made is defined by this spot. The sauces are to kill for, the portions beyond generous, the pizza good, the sub sandwiches beyond good. Mom and Pop all the way, but I'd like to see the group that can actually finish their meals. Cheap by today's standards, huge value for the buck; this is a must for Italian food fans who aren't looking for candle lights and glitz. If you going for real home made Italian food, this is a must....

This Italian restaurant is hidden away in a small shopping center. The food is excellent and there is always plenty for leftovers.

Authentically delicious! All my Italian friends go for the pasta which HAS to be the best or they'll eat at home. Friendly with many regulars including singles, couples, and lots of families and celebrations! Stuffed mushrooms a favorite appetizer and the meatballs are SO LIGHT!!! Do yourself a favor and go! Very busy on Friday nights. Also great lunches!!!!!
