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 our menus apart.

Night before marathon tradition for years...questioned last year whether or not we should go again as the food and service were both lacking, but thought we would try again. Just like last year, many open tables---which should have been the first clue. Poor service, limited menu because of the race we were told (although this has been our 5th time and that hasn't happened before), some food came out cold, took over thirty minutes to bring refill of requested bread.........too many options downtown to not enjoy a nice meal, won't be going back next year.

Running the Chevron Marathon and wanted to pasta load the night before. Perfect downtown location near our hotel. The restaurant was busy the night before the race . We had a reservation and were promptly seated once we got there. The restaurant had a limited menu that night to accommodate the larger than normal crowds ( which was probably a good idea if the had more traditional pre-race selections). Pre meal bread was excellent. Calamari appetizer was less than desirable. Most disappointing was my pasta dish which seemed like a child portion. Once my wife say my dish, she know that would not be enough for me before a race, so she saved me part of her dish. Not sure if maybe that were running low on that type of dish, but very noticeable. The cheesecake dish was very good. Service was ok, partly due to being a very busy night.

My husband & I made a reservation here since we were in town for me to run the Houston marathon & wanted some good pasta options. What sold us was the create your own pasta options for me, since that gives me good control over what I’m eating. Once we were sat we were handed a completely different menu - no pizzas on it & no create your own dish. Confused we asked if we could order things off the menu & were informed that we could ONLY order things off the menu, they were not allowing any create your own dishes or pizzas because they thought it might slow things down... understandable! Except for the fact that this was not shared or advertised BEFORE we sat down to have dinner. Not only that, but how in the world does pasta slow down an Italian restaurant...? Our server was very sweet & helped me “revise” a menu item to fit (close enough) what I planned on ordering. Pasta was good, meatball was not, & my husbands chicken parm left more to be desired. Overall, not too impressed.

Service was a little slow tonight but perked up when we explained we had Theatre tickets. Everyone's meals were very good, especially the Mezzaluna. Three of the four at our table requested the same glass of wine but they didn't have it, so we all settled for second options. Service was just OK but food was good enough to go back.

The food was amazing! Our server was not, we had to ask for water and drink refills, had empty glasses and waiter did not ask if we would like to order another cocktail which is the money maker. Our plates were cleared, glasses empty and waited at least 10 minutes for the waiter to address us and asks "how is everyone" when we clearly had no beverages or food on the table.
