We had such a great time! Some friends of ours are moving for grad school so we got together for a goodbye meal. The bread and roasted garlic was delicious. Server was attentive but not intrusive. They had great recommendations and we all loved the food, top to bottom. I want to come back and sit outside next time! A rare find.

Very nice ambiance. Plenty of bus service. Water served without ice. Cocktails were. Good.
Fried Calamari was rubbery. Red sauce was bland and cold. Bread was good. Would not ask for garlic paste. No butter for the bread. Season the olive oil. Waitress did not turn in the order and we waited forever for our food. Veal lemon was mush, shrimp scampi was cold and not at
All crispy. Too much chicken broth on the angel hair over cooked pasta. Tasted like Ramon
Noodles. $110+ 2o tip ridiculous amount for awful food.

Food was fantastic. We had a party of 6 and everyone ordered something different. Every entree was excellent. And every dish was piping hot! Appetizers along with the crusty bread - perfect.

Will return for sure!

Met some of my family for a celebratory dinner as My son is beginning a new job. Appetizers a variety of menu items and desserts along with some great wine.
Running into old neighbors was a special treat too. Don’t be fooled by the fact that this American/Italian restaurant is in a plaza because you’ll be delightfully surprised when you enter

Great food service and really reasonable prices. They have a full service bar. Treat yourself !

80th Birthday celebration. We were seated at a table in a separate room with plenty of room for balloons and presents, and we didn’t have to worry about disturbing other guests. Fantastic, attentive, good-humored server! Thanks for the great food and great time!

First time diner and pretty impressed. The fettuccini Alfredo with chicken was rich, hot and delicious. The lasagna also really good. Daughters enjoyed the kid's shrimp meal and spaghetti and meatball meal. Decent wine selection and service outside on patio was attentive without being pushy. Only downside was the people who sat inside patio smoking- what happened to distance of 15 feet from door?

Everything with the exception of the service was wonderful. We will definitely be back. Out server was in Lala land most of the evening. We had to ask for water twice when we asked for anything we had to remind the server. It was just this one server I believe because we watched others and they seemed to be on their toes.

Veal or chicken parmesan is always great! Meat filled ravioli or lasagna a close second! And the sauteed scallops were the size of a fist! Molto Bene!

This is one of my favorite restaurants. It is also a favorite of my family who live 50 miles away. We frequently meet there for great food, friendly service, more than ample servings, and many other things. I highly recommend Bella Mia.

First date night in a while and wanted to treat my special lady to a fine dinner. Was not disappointed, service was great! we are not big wine drinkers but when we told our server our peasant tastes she brought a sample of a really good wine that we would not have ordered as it was not familiar to us. Awsome, we bought the bottle. I had the filet with blue cheese and mushrooms. Cooked perfectly and tender enough to cut with a fork. She had their lasagna and said it was one of the best she ever had. Portions are pretty big, could only look at the dessert table as we waddled our way out. Let the owner know how your experience was. He can be found helping to cook, clearing tables, bringing drinks and mingling with his patrons. Nice guy, his name is Randy.

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.

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!
