Diner Reviews
  • "When we arrived we were disappointed to find an overpriced brunch with the inability to order off the menu. We had made the reservation at Bella Mia but were put in the Sport's Bar, Sullivan's next door. Not the atmosphere we were looking for for Easter Sunday with children. The brunch was standard fare, nothing special. I will not go there again...though we did voice our disappointment."

  • "Celebrated my birthday here. Ordered fettucini alfredo w chicken. It was fantastic and not overcooked. Served warm bread with cheese & olive oil. Also had $5 martinis and the owner let me choose a dessert for my birthday. Great ambiance and bonus that there was live entertainment that evening! Will definitely recommend and will be back!"

  • "This restaurant is a gem -- great ambience, wonderful food, and excellent service. The menu is extensive, but reasonable in price. From the outside, the parking lot and surroundings are a "turn-off." However, don't turn away. The inside of the restaurant will wow you. It is beautiful, with low lighting, lovely table settings, and gorgeous paintings and woodwork. The food is delectable and the drinks are good, too. Put it on your list of places to go.You won't be disappointed."

  • "A couple of my girlfriends took me out for my birthday and I suggested we try this. I was hoping for a great experience since there are so few good restaurants in the area. The place is really beautiful. It was pretty quiet on the Wednesday we dined. Scott, the bartender was super nice & attentive and the GM was checking in with us frequently and made a nice recommendation on a bottle of wine. Interesting wine list. Warm bread was fabulous and tried the fried calamari which was really good. We had eggplant parm, baked mostaccoli and chicken limone. Everyone really liked the food .. tons leftover to take home. My friends had the tiramasu and said it was really good. Nice place and hope they do well in this spot. Would definitely recommend!"

  • "Disappointed we had 4 people in our party. Four apps. we had fried calamari, black musselswhich were bland. Also the sasuage and peppers were too salty. For dinner two people had the chicken cacciatore which was very sour I,m thinking it due to the wine they used. One order of eggplant parmesean which was tasteless and very oiley. One order of shrimp alfredo which was lacking taste."

  • "First, the restaurant is set back in a strip mall, so it's hard to find when you're driving. When I arrived, no one was at the host stand, and I waited a good 5 minutes to even be acknowledged by someone. There was a table of 4 and an table of 2, so the restaurant was pretty empty when I dined at 5 pm on a Tuesday. The escarole soup tasted like lemon juice, partly because there was a lemon in the bowl when they served it, which left lemon seeds in my soup. They brought out salad with blue cheese on the side to make up for the soup. The salad was wet so the dressing didn't stick to it. The chicken parmesan was juicy but bland and the baked potato was good, cooked all the way through and a good portion."

  • "On a whole, the food was very good. Pork chops were a little tough but very tasty. Very crowded so the service was slow."

  • "Food was amazing. I had the steak vesuvio and shrimp dejonge. Both were great. The only bad part was our wait for drinks. 25 minutes is a bit long. We were given very good bread and some water when we sat down so we didn't argue."

  • "My wife and I went on a weekday date night. We read the reviews online and decided to give this place a try. We were looking for something romantic & classy but still reasonably priced. Bella Mia was this exactly. The ambience was very nice. It wasn't as quiet as I thought but inspite of others, we were still able to talk & hear one another clearly. I do have to say it took a little longer for service because our server was very busy. However, another server & the manager step in to start us off with drinks. Once our main server came to get our appetizer order we had no other problems. Food service was fast and very good. No real wait. As I stated before we went on a weekday so it was must likely less busy than the weekend. Enjoyed it."

  • "Restaurant featured a good menu and food was of above-average quality. Service was very attentive. Just a bit hard to locate, as you wouldn't expect to find a decent restaurant in a strip mall-like setting."

  • "DO NOT judge your experienced based off the bad reviews. See for yourself. When we pulled up were were even more hesitant because the restaurant is located in a shopping plaza...it's a store front next to a grocery store and a thrift shop AND an Irish Pub! We laughed a bit. When we walked inside we were completely shocked! The place was NICE! Nice decor. Nice atmosphere; a little loud but still a nice scene. The service staff were attentive and very hospitable. There were two guys who must have been the owners or something who kept coming by to make sure that were were okay and that the food was good. YES it was. We're going back during the summer to sit out on the patio."

  • "Id like to say that walking in the door I was impressed. The staff was so nice. The guy that sat us down made me feel like family. The waitress was awesome and funny. The food was awesome. Felt like we were downtown but weren't. At the end of dinner they had music playing which was nice. Owner walked us out and got into bar next door for free. Owner is one class act above the rest. Will come again"

  • "Bella Mia consistently delivers top quality in all areas -- food, service, and atmosphere. My husband tried the filet mignon for the first time during our last visit and it was incredible. Very tender and tons of flavor. We will continue to come back."

  • "Well made basic Italian dishes and great steaks in a very nice space in an out of the way location. Hilarious bartender balanced out a clueless waitress who didn't want to give us a filet: the 10 oz filets were out and she didn't want to give us an 8 oz because those were only served as part of the surf and turf. The manager straightened it out. Good option for Italian in the south suburbs."

  • "Food, as usual was excellent. The only complaint since we were sitting near the front on a bitter cold snowy nite, was that each time the door opened we felt a gust of cold air. There are some little drapes/ curtains at the front and maybe they could be untied in this bad weather. Otherwise, a great experience"

  • "My daughter had recommended the restaurant as she had a great dining experience a couple months ago. I went there a couple days ago with three of my friends. Everyone was very pleased with their meal. The food was excellent. The manager even came by to ask if everything was okay. Plus, since this was our first time dining, the waiter gave us each free dessert - one of the best tiramisu we have ever eaten. I can't wait to return. Plus, it was a very cold evening and we were seated next to the fireplace!!"

  • "Friends suggested dining here and we were pleasantly surprised. There was a great selection of dishes. I had the chicken Vesivio which was excellent. Good portions, I took part of it home. There were 6 of us and we all enjoyed our meals. My husband had the NY Strip and loved it. The decor is very pretty and I did not feel like we were squeezed in. There was entertainment later which was good but inhibited the conversation a little. We will definitely return."
