Delicious food and great service! Love that this fine Italian restaurant is in our neighborhood.
Excellent food, great atmosphere one of the best if not the best Italian restaurants in Chicago and the surrounding suburbs. Sausage & peppers the best I ever had.
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!!
Everything was phenomenal! My birthday dinner was absolutely amazing!
I love the ambiance and just being with good friends! Wine was delicious as well!’
Very good Italian food. Good old fashioned eat at grammas Italian. Service is very friendly and attentive. Really a nice place to go for a good Italian dinner. Menu is extensive and you will not leave hungry. Portions are quite large.
Bella Mia has never let me down. Our server, Beth, was great and as usual the food was awesome.
Always enjoy eating at Bella Mia. Go there fairly often with friends on Friday night, but chose to go on Saturday with a friend. We both really enjoyed our meals & will enjoy our leftovers as well!
Very nice evening with my son and mom.
It’s all good! We will be back
This is my favorite restaurant to sit down and have a great meal with a bottle of wine.
We really enjoyed our dinner and the time we where there.
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.
A really nice experience here! Excellent food and service!
Always a good evening when I have dinner at Bella Mia. There were 5 inner group & everyone enjoyed their meal choices
Very good food and large serving. Will definitely go back again.
Great food, service, and price. Highly recommend Bella Mia.
Food was great!! A very nice dining experience. Excellent service.
It’s all good!! Will be back!!
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.
Great food and generous portion. Great service! Will come back again!
Always a great experience, our waitress, DONNA, is always sweet and efficient, and we always are treated like family. The only problem I can see is that I have to stop recommending this restaurant it’s becoming way too crowded.
Been there about 7 times. Food always good. Experience depends on the sever you get.
Went to check out The Niche, a great musical duo. Restaurant/bar was hopping and the food/drinks were all excellent. Nice time, solid Italian meal.
Consistently excellent food and great atmosphere! Highly recommend this restaurant for traditional Italian food!
Bella Mia came highly recommended by a few good friends, but we were disappointed. It is very pretty inside, but I was immediately turned off when we were brought to our table to find that 2 of our 5 chairs were folding chairs. When dining at a nice restaurant like this and spending a lot of money, you should not have to sit in a folding chair. We requested a particular waitress that my good friend referred us to. She obviously was having a bad night because our service was horrible and slow. She would often disappear. We told her who referred us to her, so you would think she’d be even more attentive? My husband and I were disappointed in the portion sizes as we are accustomed to bringing home enough for another meal from most Italian restaurants. The food was very good despite the smaller portions and I had a very generous glass of wine that was reasonably priced. I am a huge fan of dessert and I was tremendously disappointed at the size of the piece of tiramisu I ordered. My husband and I normally share a piece of tiramisu. This piece was 1/3 of the size I am used to and by far the smallest tiramisu I’ve ever been served in a restaurant. It was mentioned to the waitress that it was my birthday and I wrote that in the Open Table reservation as well. My birthday was not even acknowledged nor did I get my tiny piece of tiramisu for free. We travelled 30 minutes to get to Bella Mia but would not come back as there are equivalently good restaurants closer to our home.
Beth was great waitress. Very personable and attentive!
Great service and delicious food. As usual, one of our favorites.
Excellent gem for the area. Generous portions, attentive staff, flexible in adapting entrees to meet customer requests. Good prices for the quality of food. Definitely will be back
The food was excellent the service was excellent as well. Jerry is the best waitress/server.
I don’t live near Bella Mia...but it’s well worth the drive .
Great food. Great service. Wonderful ambiance!
Not a good experience. Seating was horrible. Service was terrible. Would never to back. Had problems with our reservation made on open table
Great food. Good service. Can get noisy if in the back with larger groups.
The food is delicious and the ambiance is warm with contemporary touches. Staff was very attentive, polite and helpful. The menu is extensive, offering several fish, veal and beef dishes in addition to the traditional Italian fare. We really enjoyed our meals here and plan to return again soon.
Celebrating a birthday
A very enjoyable evening. Beth, our waitress was the best!
Great food, service, and atmosphere
Excellent. Special thanks to Jerry our waitress, she is excellent.
Was a bit disappointed. Birthday for my son was requested on reservation. Did not mention it again, but would of thought it would be still acknowledged. Never got a birthday dessert. Service was just ok. I've been there before and owner would come by, did not this time.
