The Veal Scalopine was oneThe Veal Scalopine was one of the best I ever had; it came with an abundance of mushrooms and onions, and there were 4, not 3, pieces of veal. Excellent dish.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMA wonderful find in the SouthA wonderful find in the South Suburbs. As great as downtown Chicago.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMA classy gem of a restaurantThis is about my 4th visit to Bella Mia but our first to be around on a Thurs. when the live music begins. It was fabulous. We could hardly stay in our seats. I understand there are different groups every Thurs. night and they are all fabulous.
We had bruschetta and calamari for appetizers and they were outstanding. You have a choice of soup,or salad and yummy warm bread. Three of the ladies had lake perch which they loved and remarked on the ample portion. I had tilapia which came with a delicious sauce. There is a wide selection of beer, wine and cocktails. We have yet had room for dessert, but they look delicious.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time dining there. WouldFirst time dining there. Would definitely recommend.

Thank you for a wonderfull experience.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways an enjoyable experience.My family and I are regular customers and have been since we first found out they were open. The food is the best! My favorites include any of the veal dishes which are so tender, and the shrimp dejonghe, which comes out piping hot. The sauces are authentic and very savory. I honestly can say I have never had a bad meal. As far as the service, Randy and George are the best. If anything and I mean anything is wrong with your order, it is taken care of immediately. The wait staff including Tina, Karen and Dawn are so attentitive, and provide excellent service. They know all of us by name. If you like Italian, then you must try this place, you will be back for more!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Italian Food!!Finally a great Italian Restaurant in the neighborhood!!

The restaurant was beautiful, and the service was top notch! Our server, Dawn, was knowledgeable about the wine list, wine and food pairings, and the menu! And, she explained to us that the Bella Mia experience was about more than the food; it was about the whole experience, and it was! Walter really enjoyed his chicken cacciatore, and I really enjoyed my shrimp di cosenza! And, the Calamari was superb! I read a review raving about the calamari, and it is true! the breading is light, and the calamari itself is firm..not rubbery or chewy! To top it off, we took home a big, delicious slice of cheesecake! We will return, and we will recommend Bella Mia!4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic!!It was our anniversary so we wanted to try Bella Mia.

A beuatiful and romantic room although the sound level is a bit much for a truly romantic evening The staff is trying very hard to please.
