The food here was average to very good. The value for what you get is great. Service was questionable, but they made it right by giving us two desserts on the house. The sauce on the gnocchi is very flavorful and prepared extremely well. Gelato for dessert is also great. We would come here again.

This is a small, charming Italian restaurant owned by a Neopolitan from Naples/Ischia. We had salad with balsamic viniagrette and then rigatoni with eggplant and mozzarella. This pasta dish was really super - the sauce was fantastico. The tables are a bit close to each other but the service was great. I am definitely going back since this is in the theatre district on Ninth Avenue and 46th St. They have a pre theatre fixed price dinner. I am fussy about Italian food, since my family is Italian and this ranks highly!

If you're looking for a quaint location with great food and service, Cara Mia is the place to be. Whether you go before or after a Broadway play/musical, or even if its a first date..Cara Mia will make it a memorable one. The staff are friendly attentive. Our waiter "Pascual/Israel" was very kind and funny. We will DEFINITLY be returning here.

I stopped here for a bite to eat in December, 2012.

When I arrived the restaurant was empty; it was 4pm - too late for lunch/too early for dinner. However, I was welcomed in. The staff was decorating for Christmas. I ordered a class of wine and gamberi (grilled shrimp, avocado guacamole on a bed of scallion & corn pancake) which was delicious. Unfortunately, I was forgotten at the table (probably due to the odd time I came in). In any event, when I called for my bill, they realized I had been forgotten and reduced my bill.

I will definitely try this restaurant again - the food was very good.

Enjoyed a nice dinner for 4. Pasta was quite good. The wine list is adequate for Hell's Kitchen. Only issue was very few beers for the person that doesn't like wine.
