The food here is good, but I still like their original location (also in a strip mall). Just my preference.

When you come don't expect to get a professional well trained wait staff. These are guys and gals that are probably family and\or friends that have been there for years and will be there for more. They are not that polished. It is part of the charm but I would have liked it better if they were more professional.

In any case, the food is good to great. The portions are generous and the price is reasonable.

What can I say. If I was local to the area I would probably eat there 2 times a week. With the left overs I can get an additional meal per visit.

Once you find the place it will be easy to get to. Just remember its across from the Police Department.

I have been to La Vita Mia on three separate occassions, and each time was as good as the first. Each meal, from appetizer to entry is made to order -- no pre-made food leaves the kitchen. So while you may wait a few extra minutes between courses, there is no doubt that it will be definitely worth the wait. The wait staff is very attentive without being "hovering." But make no doubt, while service and atmosphere is good, the food is OUTSTANDING and definitely is the star of this establishment. I could list the three different meals I had, but it would be pointless. Each time I was with a party of four, all ordering a different meal. Each time we spent hours raving about how good it was. . . I can't wait to visit again. and I WILL visit again and again.

On the top ten to tweenty on the north shore and it beats out anything in east boston and is better than most in thr north end for food quality.
