    Everything was great! From the holder they provide at your table for purses, to our fantastic server - I have nothing bad to say about our experience! Catching up with a dear friend - our server was amazing in not "checking" on us every 5 minutes, not rushing us - he gave us all great recommendations and was very attentive. Will definitely be returning.

    My husband and I or me and a girl friend have now eaten numerous times at Mia Bella. Some of those were special occasions, brunch, dinners, and lunches. All have always resulted in excellent , food, service and ambiance. However, Sunday was an exception. I requested "a nice warm booth" for four. We were the second table of people to arrive after opening and the four of us were seated in the booth in the far corner next to opening to side patio. The booth was also facing the back side table arrangement of set of booths perpendicular to our booth. Although, definitely not ideal with place in the corner we were still looking forward to an enjoyable Sunday brunch. We had out of town guests for the weekend and specifically took them to Mia Bella for an excellent dinning experience. We had just ordered and enjoying our drinks and conversation when a group of eight and one high chair were seated in the table area behind the perpendicular booth section facing us. Unfortunately, you cannot account for the way people come dressed for Sunday Brunch even given the fact the restaurant was worthy of better dress code. But the real issue was the level of noise that ensued. Because the 13 of us were all in a corner boxed in area conversation was impossible because the group was so loud as well as the child was allowed to "walk around" and certainly become a challenge for the wait staff. So at that point we hurriedly finished our food and left apologizing to our guests. If I take the time to make reservations for Brunch again I assume I will have to learn the seating chart in order to make sure our table is not in a corner next to a glass door and window when it is 40degress outside.

    Our first time at Mia Bella: one of the first things we liked right away was the music played - classic hits including some Bing Crosby, Sinatra, etc. Made for a great ambiance. The food was excellent, and menu was broad enough to fit anyone's tastes. Have to note - their Balsamic Oil with the French Bread was worth a meal by itself. We went through a couple glasses of wine on the Bread and Balsamic alone. We'll be abck for sure . . .

    5 girls were there celebrating a birthday and the staff found us a corner table which was so perfect. We had the best waiter, when we complained the coffee was on the cool side they made a fresh pot and it was nice and hot. The food is amazingly delicious and not to pricey. We'll be back in Dec. to celebrate another birthday if not before.

    We had to grab a quick dinner on the way to the Houston airport and this restaurant got very good reviews. We can see why. The food was very good (eggplant parm and Capellin de Mare) and dessert excellent. Our waiter was in great spirits and was fun. We enjoyed the meal.

    We had seafood lasagna, a pizza, Gnocchi, as well as Carpaccio as our starter. Every dish was amazing. The service was great also. Our server was very attentive and suggested some of her favorites. We did not have to ask for one thing, she was on top of everything. A manager came by and introduced himself as the new manager and asked how our dinner was and if we dined at Mia Bella before. He sent us a choc cake compliments of him and his staff. Great dinner

    We have dined at Mia Bella several times over the years and this was our latest attempt. The food is fantastic and the only reason that we keep coming back. However, the service is consistently below average. We had to ask for our server several times: to order, to get refills, to provide a check. The server even walked off right in the middle of my wife's questions about the specials. He didn't return until after we asked the water patron to find him. Our dinner took 3 hours from the time we arrived. A little over two hours from the time we were seated for 6 people. The tragedy of Mia Bella is that it is just good enough to not scratch off our list, but not good enough to rank higher than a "last resort."

    we were disappointed in the service we received during our time at Mia Bella; we hardly ever saw our waiter, never checked on us, had to ask another waiter for a steak knife, ask twice for glass of wine that was ordered prior to our meal. the calamari was rubbery and cold; my filet was ordered medium-rare but came out well done. On a positive note, the hostess and front staff were very nice and welcoming.

    We have been here many times and this experience was terrible. The waiter was not very receptive to us at all. Everytime bread was brought to the table it was quickly removed and then we would have to ask again. This happened 4 times till the point we gave up on having any bread. 4 people were sitting at the table it was not clear to them that we wanted 4 glasses with the wine and then again a LONG wait for the other two glasses. The food was brought to the table the bill appeared so dessert was not even offered, we did send the bill back and asked for coffee. Back to the bill..it reflected items that were not ordered so that needed to be fixed, again a LONG wait...then we have a $20 voucher and they could figure out how to handle this.

    Nice outside patio but the manager and waiter shook the dust off the door rugs near our table while our Sunday brunch was being served. The scrambled eggs were excessively watery and had to be returned. We arrived a few minutes early but were told by the manager we had to wait to enter until 10:00 am when they opened. Yet others arrived after us and were allowed in and seated by the hostess. Overall the management is enthusiastic but the service and food are below average. I will not go back.

    Mia Bella Trattoria has a fairly extensive menu featuring some great twists on classic Italian. The lamb osso bucco and pork chop are both tremendous. The scallops in jalapeno pesto appetizer is delicious, and their bread pudding, tira misu, and creme brulee are all great desserts. The wine list is short, but has some great wines at several price ranges.
