Excellent food, reasonable prices, good service. If I lived nearby, I would visit this place often!

We made a reservation weeks ago, arrived 15 minutes early to a basically empty restaurant and they seated us at the drafty, cold front door. We asked to be moved and they seated us by the bathroom, when there were many better tables available. Food was great, service by Hector fine, but really, what did we do to deserve a small table by the bathroom at 5:45 on a Tuesday evening?

The food was pretty good. My only complaint would be the service. Our waiter was very friendly, but seemed to be a little "out of it". Example: He would bring bread, but no oil/herbs for dipping. He would bring to-go boxes but no lids. Just little things like that. This, coupled with the fact that we were practically on top of the table next to us. Other than that, our experience was good! I would recommend Mia Bella! The food was very delicious!

Waitress was distracted and seemed inconvenienced by us. we had to ask someone else for bread. Once we weren’t going to by a $50 bottle of wine I think she lost interest.
The food was ok but definitely overpriced.

WE enjoyed our dinner - we were in town for the Houston Marathon & we always eat here whenever we come to run the marathon. very convenient & short walk for GRB.

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.

Perfect for a nice meal before the theater

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.
