Mia Bella Trattoria - Main Street
Loved it!!Wonderful experience! Even though a rainstorm sent water dripping on our backs, the staff quickly arranged a new table for us without skipping a beat. The food was tasty, beautifully served and the best bargain around. Definitely will go again and recommend it to my friends.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was a great experienceIt was a great experience except that the tables are way too close together!!! When we were leaving we had to ask a diner to get out of their seat because there was simply not enough room to get by! But the food was fantastic and the wait staff was excellent. The only reason I didn't give them 5 stars was the table crowding.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMOur Anniversary DinnerWe had a great dinning experience. The waiter was attentive and offered some great menu options. I have gluten allergies and he was ready to offer menu and suggestions. The food was presentable and delicious. My husband and I visited 10 years ago on our 1st Anniversay. Will visit more often.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMPre-theater VenueFirst time diner to Mia Bella. Great pre-theater spot. Convenient to most hotels and entertainment venues. The Strudel di FunghieFormaggio (which I might mention was recommended by our server) was "outstanding"6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMNice pre-Arts dinner placegood food and friendly waitstaff. Be sure to let them know you are going to a show so you do not get pinched on time. Allow a little extra time too ( this is not a fast food joint)6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMFavoriteIt is our favorite place to eat in downtown Houston. We always go when we are downtown for the theater. Greeting is always friendly, service is great, and I have eaten many of the items on the menu and they are all prepared well and taste wonderful5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Mother's Day BrunchGreat brunch. Limited menu but we all loved it. I want to go back for dinner5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Italian Restaurant in DowntowJust a block from Marriott's Hotel Icon. The seafood lasagna is to die for.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMSimply the very best hi HoustonMy family and really enjoy the food, the service and the ambience at your restaurant. We visited the Wollowbrook location and were VERY dissapointed with the three things I just listed above.
We always find a reason or create an event to dine at Mia Bella's on main street. As my title states about, your restaurant is simply the best!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMElegant yet affordable lunchWent in for lunch on a weekday, and was pleased to find a delectable menu that was reasonably priced. My brother and I each got a hearty groumet panini with substantial side salads for a total of $25. Great, elegant atmosphere and all within our allotted lunch hour. We will surely come back!4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was good but dessert.Everything was good but dessert. It looked good but was disappointing. My steak was excellent and service was excellant4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMI've been hitting Mia Bella'sI've been hitting Mia Bella's Sunday Easter Brunch every year for 5 years...love the place, but wish they'd bring back "buffet-style".
The Bellini's are awesome! The Crespellini is always a good (fattening) treat!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMOur group of six had a veryOur group of six had a very pleasant meal at Mia Bella. Someone had recommended the restaurant to us and they were right on target. We told our waiter that we had tickets for a show and he helped us order in a timely manner and have plenty of time to make the show. Will I go back? Absolutely!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was outstanding. AttentiveFood was outstanding. Attentive service and very comfortable environment. A nice evening out3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat quiet spotThis was my second visit - both times before a downtown event. I do recommend reservations as there is limited seating. We arrived at 4:30 and the place wasn't packed (yet!).
Service was good and our server was highly knowledgeable about the ingredients. His drink recommendation for the Peach Bellini was perfect with our calamari . My main dish was chicken crepes - yummy butter sauce, leeks, oh my! My boyfriend had a steak dish and it was perfectly cooked.
Really no room for dessert but we ate some anyway ! Creme brûlée was nice and light and I just watched my bf down the chocolate cake!
Highly recommend .3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing CrepesMia Bella has been one of my two favorite downtown lunchtime eateries for years, and my all-time favorite for evenings and weekends. The pasta concoctions are amazing; they have spoiled me for any other Italian pasta house. And the "crespelle di pollo" (crepe with chicken, leek, and spinach)--incomparable! They also have nice salads, especially their house salad (mixed greens with pear and walnuts) and that one with the chicken, orzo, and pine nuts (don't remember the name).
Would I recommend Mia Bella to friends? Of course! And the prices are reasonable, too.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat pizza. Service a littleGreat pizza. Service a little slow. We had to gobble down desert to make curtain at Jones Hall.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMalways a great choice, goodalways a great choice, good food, good service, good value3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMi CHOSE THIS LOCATION TO PROPOSEi CHOSE THIS LOCATION TO PROPOSE TO MY GIRLFRIEND AND IT WORKED OUT VERY WELL. Amazing food indeed!3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ambiance, good food,Great ambiance, good food, and service. Much quieter than the Caroline Avenue restaurant and much nicer.3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMHappy to Find on OpenTableWe were thrilled to see that Mia Bella had joined OpenTable as we are big fans of its moderately priced and delicious Italian food. Our current favorite starter has to be the Risotto balls which come 3 to an order--perfect to share if you are in the mood or to keep for yourself if you are particularly hungry. For an entree we chose the Pork Tenderloin with sweet potato stuffed canneloni [listed on the menu as Maiale con Canneloni] served with julienned vegetables. There is a decent wine list that includes 10 bottles priced at $25.
Weekend brunch is also worth checking out featuring a number of variations on Eggs Benedict including one with crab. Yum.12/7/2012 12:00:00 AMThis was my first time here.This was my first time here. The pace is a little on the slow side, but the food is great and people often check in on you to ensure that you are enjoying your experience. The food was truly delicious and the portions are great sizes.12/1/2012 12:00:00 AM
