We have been to this restaurant about a dozen times. We keep going back because the food is so good and the value is right. Since it was a Saturday night they had a singer. The music was good but it was a very loud atmosphere that evening. Other than the noise level it was a great evening. We will definitely go back again.

We arrived at the time of our reservation and the hostess seemed unhappy. Then we ordered our meal, which started with salad and bread. However, the main course came out when we were only about halfway finished with our salad. It was placed on the table beside our salad plate. We believe that wait staff should be more attentive to know when guests finish one course before the next one is brought out. We seemed rushed, which we were. Our entire dining experience was finished in less than 45 minutes. And, we never got the iced tea we ordered, but it showed up on our bill. They did correct the bill as we requested, but it seemed as if the wait staff was unbelieving at first.

I went for a birthday celebration, had the sausage/peppers which were great and calamari not fried crispy enough. Our entrees were strip steak cooked perfectly, pasta Valencia was great and perch which was good, only 3 small pieces ( not a good value for the money). Our server Patti was great and attentive. The bus boys were very helpful keeping the table clear, wrapping up left overs, filling the glasses with water and asking if anything else was needed. A gem in the southwest suburban, with white table cloth, highly recommended.

The ambiance is friendly and old school. Our server, Randy, was attentive and let us know about specials and his favorite dishes. The chicken vesuvio was bone in, which I love. My husband enjoyed the veal parm. Servings are generous and tasty. We'll definitely be back!

If you haven't tried Bella Mia, you should. It's a hidden gem in a shopping mall so easy to miss. BUT, once you walk in, the ambiance is wonderful and the food outstanding. We don't live in the area but it's always on our "go to" list for dinner and special occasions. Muscles are incredibly good! The angel hair with shrimp and vodka sauce is another of our favorites. Great food at reasonable prices. Would highly recommend giving it a try!

We were getting together with cousins--haven't gotten together in a long time. We were there for over 2 1/2 hours and the staff was very good about letting us sit and talk. Our server also gave us "couples" checks, which really worked out well. Can't say enough about this restaurant's hospitality and friendly atmosphere. It is one of my favorite south side restaurants!!

Valentine's Day can be one of the three worst dining out days, but the restaurant handled a busy evening well. Had to wait for water refills and our second loaf of bread, and went over ten minutes without our waitress checking in with us toward the end of our dinner. She was friendly though, and capable. Stuffed mushroom cap appetizer was outstanding; lasagna was so so......they need to work on their tomato sauce....will go back but order a different entree next time. Great and reasonably priced wine list.

After being seated we ordered drinks and were brought a plate of roasted garlic, warm bread, Parmesan cheese and oil. I was in heaven . We ordered mussels in red sauce that were delicious. My husband ordered the porterhouse, I know who orders a steak at an Italian restaurant. He said it was the best steak he had ever had. I had the eggplant parmigiana, which was excellent. Bella Mia always serves great food. Our go to restaurant when we want a great meal.

I usually have an Italian entree but decided on Steak Vessuvio It was a little overwhelming with the garlic I could not taste the steak at all due to the garlic.
My friend had a Filet Mignon which was delicious.
I would definitely go back again because I think that their food is great. Just a bad selection on my part.
