Stingy with the whole wheat tortellini. I only got 5 in my dish and it was mostly chicken and tomatoes for $22. And I was still hungry

Hostess tried to make us wait 25-30 minutes when there was multiple empty tables. Had to go online, make a reservation, as they had plenty, and they sat us immediately.

Service was outstanding! Ambiance is always wonderful. I eat at Mia Bella frequently, and for the first time my entree was barely edible—-the salad was delicious, though. I took the leftovers home thinking that I might be able to cut the chicken more easily when I wasn’t trying to focus on conversation, too. Wrong! I couldn’t even chew it, because it was all gristle. I was able to eat about 1/3 of my entree. This is a rare occurrence, though.

We had a wonderful time at Mia Bella celebrating my husband’s birthday! Service was great, food was delicious, and they even had some surprises for my hubby! We had only previously visited for brunch and were pleased, so now knowing their dinner is great too, we will definitely be regular customers!

This occasion at Mia Bella was a luncheon meeting. The atmosphere was fine, the food was fine for lunch - soup and salad - and the service was attentive. Mia Bella may be more credible for lunch than dinner.

Good food, really good variety. The service was likewise exceptional. Wood-fired over pizza was very good. However, management's curious decision not to attempt to control a screaming child at a nearby table made for a very stressful dining experience. I would therefore not recommend this restaurant if you want an adequate environment for a business or social engagement.

They have consistently good food. The prices are a bit high, but worth it. In the summer months, it can get a little warm in the restaurant, but aside from that, the ambiance is good.

The pasta was superb! It must be made fresh there in the kitchen, because it is like no other pasta that you will get anywhere. The service was some of the best we have had anywhere. We were a party of 7, and when our food was ready, there must have been 4 or 5 staff that hand-delivered everyone at once! The only negative that I can see is that they could probably use some shades or tinted windows because we were there at 530, and it was quite warm the whole time due to the large windows and nothing to shade the sun.

The food was delicious, I ate the seafood lasagna it was very nice. The service was ok, my daughter was given watered down lemonade, I guess they ran out she ended up getting pineapple juice but not her favorite. The focaccia bread was delicious especially because we were starving.

We have eaten at Mia Bella before and had an amazing meal and great service. This visit was awkward due to our server. He never mentioned the specials for the night, in fact we didn't know there were specials until after we ordered and heard another server sharing with his table. My son's pizza came out way before our entrees so he was bored and ready to leave when our main course arrived. Our entrees were over cooked because they were sitting under the lights long before we finished our salads. Overall just a disappointing night.

I was there for a business meal / renewal of an old friendship. The food was wonderful, the choices for lunch were terrific. The service was the friendliest I've ever seen, with the hostess and wait staff all smiling and seemingly enjoying their jobs. Service was "stealthy," that is, never interrupting, or hanging over us at the table, but very attentive. This is how a restaurant should be run.
