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.
Food and service were excellent as usual!!
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.
The food was good and the service fast. Rather noisy.
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.
My boyfriend and i came to Bella Mia on our date. We will be back on friday night with another couple celebrating a birthday.
Excellent. Thank you!
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 had a lovely Easter brunch. The food was great and our waiter Richard was great.
My friends and I were there for girls night. Our waiter was Randy who fit right in with us. The food was absolutely delicious and the service was great, the drinks were also wonderful. I will be back again and would highly recommend
Our go to place if i have a taste for Italian food. My husband thinks their porterhouse steak is the best he has ever had.
I'm never disappointed when my wife and I dine here. Food is always delicious and consistent. And I love the ambiance. Don't be afraid to ask friends to join you, you'll love it.
Excellent! We went for my wife’s birthday. Randy our server was great. Attentive, funny and overall a true professional.
Love this restaurant. The sea food is wonderful, the pasta is the best, the wine too!
Richard was our waiter and was truly excellent. We will be back!
It was great as usual! Beth our server was as good as good gets!!!!
Food is fabulous. Such a nice neighborhood restaurant. Excellent value
Our waiter was not as good as previous waitress we have had.
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.
