“Best pizza in Bethesda”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2012

Very good Neapolitan style pizza. Love the margherita pizza and the rapini appetizer. Nice atmosphere, very friendly service. Live music on certain nights adds charm to the place. Very friendly owner.

Great food at this neighborhood Italian inspired restaurant. Would be nice to have more specials and more choices on the menu.

“Fresh pizza”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2012

They have the best wood fired pizza with all fresh ingredients. Never had a bad meal. The owner and chef is really nice and always talking to her customers. She also will have complimentary pizza slices for those waiting for a table as it gets really crowded on a Friday or Saturday night. But the hour wait is worth it. Nice out door seating area in the summer too.

“Wonderful. Go on 1/2 price wine nite!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2012

Mia's pizza is a little restaurant on Cordell Avenue. The outside seating is comfortable and inviting. It is not unusual for someone to have a dog with them outside. The inside is cozy (read: small) but it seems to work. It's lots of fun to sit at the bar by the kitchen if you can get a seat and watch the cooks make the food. The pizzas are excellent and the head chef/owner almost always comes around to all the tables and speaks to the patrons asking about the food, etc. The crust is thin and chewy, the toppings are plentiful and the combinations are ones I would never think of. Even the kids like these combos on the pizza. The portions are generous enough that even I can't eat an entire pizza in one sitting. (Maybe my sitting wasn't long enough.) The servers will always give you numerous wine samples if you can"t decide between 2 or 3 or 4 wines. The sangrias - especially the white - is also very good. Watch for specials here and if you sign up on the website they will send you coupons. I'm going this Friday and I'm going to claim my free birthday pizza. Yum! P.S. The desserts always look good. I always wish to have a peanut butter cupcake for dessert, but sadly they are always all gone by the time I am ready to order.

“Best pizza with friendly service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 22, 2011

We used to go to another thin crust pizza joint but have for the past two years made Mia's our go-to place for a casual meal. You can call 20 minutes ahead and put your name on the list for a table which really helps. The wait staff is amazing -- they can offer suggestions on the pizzas and are accommodating with special requests -- like mine for extra basil. And they even remember next time! They have expanded the offerings but we still always order the pizza. It's just too good to miss . . . .ENJOY!
