“My New Favorite Italian Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2014 via mobile

Based on a recommendation from relatives we went with friends to Mia Madre Trattoria for dinner. I was told that it was a fantastic restaurant and It lived up to that rating and more. You will be met at the door by owner/ hostess, Shari with a hug. At once I felt like I was visiting relatives. Even though we were newbies, her words, we were treated like we were long staring customers. We will be! The food was fantastic, some of the best in Pittsburgh. The beans and greens appetizer and the bruschetta was superior. We took advantage of the weekday and Sunday special of 2 dinners plus a bottle of wine for 39.99 plus tax. Any dinner on the menu counts and a choice of white or red wine. Since we were 2 couples we got one of each. I got chicken Romano and it was excellent. Dinner tonight is leftovers and I can't wait. Mia Madre is a rather small but very cozy place with a bar and a friendly wait staff. It is well decorated with pictures reflecting their Italian heritage with Italian music playing in the background. We had a fun night, had a lemocello in the bar were the conversation and fun continued. Shari and her staff will make you feel at home while you are there. GO!

“Continuing excellence”

We are fortunate to live close to Mia Madre and try to visit regularly. We did so last week - another excellent dining experience. Good food, service and prices - who could expect more?

“Friendly Italian”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2013

We went w/o a reservation and were seated in the front window-interesting. The staff were all very friendly, especially Alex- our waiter. We felt like best friends with everyone there by the time we left. But the best part was the food-large portions and delicious. My husband had the osso buco special and I had pasta Florentine. His meat was fall-off-the-bone tender. My pasta was very good-with spinach and mushrooms-and enough for 3 more meals. The cannoli were the best we ever had. We stumbled on this restaurant by accident, but will return real soon! Thanks Shari!

“total experiance”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2013

we found this resturant by mistake. What a find. They found us a table on saturday night without a reservation, and treated us like long lost family! The veal shank is awesome as is the sauce. The best part about this place is the people, they give new meaning to family.

We go to Mia Madre every single chance we get. Their food is top notch and Alex makes some mean drinks! We also love how they treat their guests, we feel like regulars, like family even!
