A word from Mia Bella Trattoria - Vintage Park

Mia Bella Trattoria - which translates as "My Beautiful" Trattoria - is a delightful combination of Italian tradition and regional American twists. With multiple locations, the dining destinations are fun, intimate and moderately priced just like the traditional Trattorias where Italian families gathered for wine and delicious food. In a tradition of his own making, Owner/Chef Youssef Nafaa has created an exciting menu of familiar foods pushed to a new level with daring preparations and imaginative ingredients. Wine lovers will find a pleasingly extensive list of evenly priced wines while those seeking cocktails will find the same combination of classic recipes and creative mixings which set the menus apart.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Waiter lost ticket and we never received our order. Consequently we had to start over, only to later find out the kitchen was out of what we requested. What a mess. When the hastily ordered dishes did arrive, they were not very tasty... What a disappointment."

  • "We love Vintage Park and couldn't wait to try some of the restaurants there. We had a hankering for some Italian food and so chose Mia Bella Trattoria. We quickly got reservations via iPhone and were on our way. The atmosphere was great and the service was good. The food was a major disappointment. There were six of us who ordered 5 different entrees. We all shared samples and agreed that nothing was really good. I ordered the special which was Mahi Mahi and it tasted old and "fishy" to where I couldn't finish my meal. The green bean were good but nothing special. The Caesar salad was good but had too much dressing that was dripping off the leaves. The Chicken Parmesian was mediocre as was the tortellini. Never returning."

  • "Came here for brunch for my mother-in-laws birthday. They had a good selection of brunch drinks as well as a good brunch menu. Our waiter was very personable, and I would definitely eat here again!"

  • "We enjoyed the appetizers very much (particularly the fried artichokes). The entrees were delicious. We sat in the private wine room, and the intimacy and attractiveness of the room was a particular highlight. Our waiter couldn't have been better."

  • "The tilapia with lemon risotto, artichoke hearts and bell pepper is PHENOMENAL The only drawback was that it was pro night and the teens had taken over--so it was loud. This isn't usually the case. On a Friday, definitely have a reservation!"

  • "Vintage Park is such a beautiful island in suburbia strip malls and Mia Bella lives up to the area. The food was very good. I am second generation Italian so we are particular about our tomato sauce. Although this wasn't how I would make my sauce, it was still very good. We (four of us) had appetizers, entrees (eggplant, lamb and fish - don't remember the last one). We did not have any salad or dessert. Everyone was pleased with their choice. We were there on a Friday night, had reservations and were seated as soon as we arrived. Our waiter was friendly and helpful. The only complaint was that the bar was slow, but the restaurant and bar were packed. Will be back for a large party we're planning."

  • "Took at least 20 minutes for us to get our food after we ordered. We asked what was taking so long several times. We ordered omelettes so that should not of taken NEARLY as long as it did. We were on a schedule & had to leave at a certain time. The waitress BARELY checked on us & it got to the point that I had to get up & walk to the register to tell her to just give us our tickets so we could pay & go when we did get our food which took FOREVER! When the food finally came, it was ok. It was a little runny. It came w/fruit & a cold potatoe. Expected the food to be HOT & it wasn't. The waitress was ACTING like she was overwhelmed w/helping our table even though we didn't ask for anything except drinks. Manager didn't even offer a discount."

  • "Mia Bella is always consistent with their food and service and their wine list has improved. They have nice daily specials though I have a hard time not having the Polpette - delicious meatballs over whole wheat spaghetti with a lovely tomato sauce. The bread is yummy as is the olive oil & balsamic vinegar "dip". We had some lively groups in the area we sat in but you never know about that & it isn't a bad reflection on the restaurant. It was a wonderful dining experience & we'll be back."

  • "Great restaurant for a night out. Food selection good and can cater for multiple tastes. If you are a high level foody, this might not be the place for you. I had the steak special with potatoes and asparagas. The beef filet was devine, but large, stringy asparagus really let the did down. Despite the minor downside on my last meal here, I will be back."

  • "Had a wonderful lunch with a friend and my daughter. The food was great. Been here with a large group in the wine cellar room before, ate this time in the open area part inside. :)"

  • "All of the food was great. Some of us had breakfast items and others had lunch. The frozen bellinis weren't very frozen though. It was my mom's birthday and I had mentioned that on the reservation and 3 other times while we were there before they finally came out. We were on the patio because it was such a nice day, but the service was very slow. Not sure if it may have been better inside. We love Vintage Park though, lots of neat places to eat."

  • "great food, great atmosphere, service was a bit slow...actually, service was fine, the kitchen was a bit slow getting some of our dishes out-in particular the last dish and desert"

  • "Mia Bella is located directly on the Plaza, a nice area with water fountains and live music. My date was 15 minutes late, but the hostess graciously held our reservation, which was an actual table, not a place in line with a 30 minute wait, which we once experienced at another restaurant on the plaza. We had a nice booth facing the plaza which could have seated 4. We had the Valentine's Day specials - 4 courses with matching wines. The food was very good. The service was good if not outstanding. We enjoyed a liesurely 3 hour dinner for this special occasion. The 1st course took a long time, but we had bread & wine and the rest of the meal was very timely. Dress was largely business casual (only 2 of us had ties). I recommend it."

  • "First time dining here---and all 3 of us loved the dishes that we ordered. The wine list was extensive, the service was impeccable. We were able to enjoy our table conversation without shouting--nice ambiance. A great place for after the afternoon matinee at the theatre. We will definitely be back many times to explore other menu offerings."

  • "I ordered rare ahi tuna which came out medium well. The waiter had the manager come over. He agreed and offered to replace my food. I did not want the other 3 guests to have to wait so I refused. The waiter offered one free dessert if we ordered another one so we did. When the bill came we were still charged for the tuna. I didn't think that was right so I requested the waiter to take it off. He obliged very graciously. The manager should have had the foresight to have done so. We enjoy this neighborhood restaurant and hope the management improves.  "

  • "Enjoyed the family outing for a late brunch meal. We were seated in an area a bit more secluded from the dining area overlooking the patio and enjoyed the quieter atmosphere to visit and converse for a party of 8. Pleasantly surprised by the many gluten free options in addition to the brunch and regular menu options."

  • "We made reservations at Mia Bella for New Years Eve at 8:30pm. We arrived shortly after 8:30, but were informed that someone else had taken our reservation. We waited in the bar for 45 minutes - and met several other people who also had reservations at 8:30 but had no table. After the 45 minute wait, we left and went to Pele Pele where we were promptly seated, with no reservation, and had an excellent time. We have eaten at Mia Bella several times in the past and usually had good service and great food - this was quite a disappointment. I realize that the holiday season is a hectic time, but this is little excuse for botched reservations, especially as it appears we were not the only ones affected."

  • "Overall Mia Bella was an enjoyable experience. The restaurant was a bit crowded on a Saturday night. We unfortunately were given a table for two close to the door, and the foot traffic was disturbing. Several people (waiters and patrons alike) bumped into our table or even or chairs. This got less annoying with our second glass of wine. The food was good to very good."

  • "Food surprisingly good. Service unbelievably slow and there were only about 2 other occupied tables in the whole restaurant."
    Dined on 1/12/2014
  • "The food, while not horrible was definitely disappointing. We sat near the kitchen and managed to watch one of the waiters pour out parmesan from a big bag. Not what you'd hope for when dining at an Italian restaurant."

  • "We've enjoyed dinners at Mia Bella at Vintage Park before, but this is the first time for Sunday brunch. The prices are quite reasonable and the food and service very good. However, the noise-level is excessive. We were a group of 5 and could not hear ourselves at times."

  • "We went to Mia Bella Trattoria- Vintage Park for my father's birthday dinner and it was wonderful! The food and drinks were great, the service was good, and the restaurant was not super noisy, so we were able to have a conversation."

  • "It's a chain so there's nothing really unique. That said, the food is consistently good and the wine list is nice too. We always make reservations - it's the only way to go there! EVERY TIME (even with our reservations) we've had issues with table placement - but at least we get a table!"

  • "The food was decent, they were out of spinach the night we came in. (Really?) The waiter was not that interested in us, I am assuming because we got the one of the cheapest bottles of wine and no appetizers? We were feeling rushed when we were eating dinner, and yet there were plenty of tables empty. My wife and I have been here for lunch in the past and we had a much better experience, so will give Mia Bella the benefit of the doubt."

  • "Waited a long time for salad to be served - because when our food did come, it was our entrees - server had forgotten to order salad, so we said just to forget about it since our main dishes had arrived (which were good). Before this, another server/manager apologized for the wait "because the gluten-free pasta took longer" - then realized he had the wrong table (ours had no gluten-free). I had written in the Open Table reservation message that this was for a birthday. I was glad that when the restaurant called to confirm, she made a point of noting it was for a birthday & they would take care of that...but even though we ordered dessert, no mention was ever made of the birthday. So good food, but staff seemed forgetful/confused."
