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 the menus apart.

Excellent place for a pleasant dinner with great service. Emilio, the manager, was amazing with his attention to details and checked on the customers often to ensure that. Definitely recommend to celebrate an occasion or for a casual meal.

This place is simply fantastic. We have finally found our favorite Italian restaurant in Houston. The food was perfection. My husband and I both did the create your own pasta/sauce/veggies: my husband had the linguine with jalapeño cilantro pesto with salmon and a cheese meatball. I had the gnocchi with basil pesto.
Both meals were divine. The bread and dipping oil was also great. We visited on a Saturday around noon and it was quiet. The service was excellent. We will be back.

We enjoyed the calamari appetizer, chicken piccata and grilled lamb loin chops, the latter paired with an excellent Veneto red.

Our server, Carolina, was wonderful. The food was great. Loved the ambiance. It was noisy, which would be expected on a Saturday night. You can park in garage for free. Will return for sure...

Unfortunately this time around the experience was not what we are used to. Our order was wrong, had to ask for water a few times and they did not acknowledge that the reservation was for a birthday celebration. I hope it improves.

We arrived early and had a drink at the bar. It took an unusually long time to be asked if we wanted anything. Once seated the appetizer crab cake was overcooked and when our pasta dish was served it had a long brown hair on the plate. They took it away and we were served another dish. The pasta was smothered in sauce and was not what I thought. Management did take the pasta dish off of our bill. I really wanted to find a new neighborhood gem. This was not it for me.

Food was delicious, service was great, we requested a change of table to be closer to the area to watch the oven, without a doubt they did it.

Four of us went to dinner and we shared the calamari which was cooked perfectly. I had the chicken parmigiana which was excellent. One of our guests had the lamb Osso bucco and the portion was enormous. She said it was fabulous. Our server was attentive and did a great job making recommendations. Great night. Will definitely go back

Great food, great service, beautiful restaurant, and the Bartender also makes delicious drinks. Our waitress was EXCELLENT and super friendly. (I wish we could remember her name so we can let everyone know who to ask for but I don't have my receipt with me). She has a slight accent and was truly great. My wife and I had a couple of questions, and our waitress answered them immediately, and while doing so, we had a few laughs. We highly recommend this restaurant, Mia Bella, in Greenway Plaza, to everyone. This was our 3rd visit to this restaurant, and we will definitely go back again, and again.

Food was lovely. Tomato basil soup took a little long to come out which was unexpected but my coworker said it was worth the wait. We did have to ask the waiter for bread which was a bit unusual for the establishment. Nevertheless will return.

Went to Mia with my family on Christmas Eve. Food and service was excellent. My only issue was open table asked if it was a special event and it was my Dad's 90th Birthday and I requested cake for him but they did not bring...but understand it was a busy day. Otherwise food and service was excellent. Highly recommend.

Excellent service for our party of 6. Restaurant was noisy, so I’m glad we had a table in the back corner so we could have a conversation. All the meals were nicely prepared, though my dish wasn’t super hot, but I guess that can happen when trying to coordinate 6 meals to serve at once. I wish they’d bring back the mushroom strudel!

I’d never dine here again. I was promised that I would have the private room and I was promised that I would be accommodated but instead I was mistreated. I called 3 weeks prior, 2 weeks prior, and the day before and was told that I would have this private room. When I called an hour prior, I was told it wasn’t available and that I would be taken care of when I got there. When I ordered, I told the waiter that I could not have mushroom in my food because I am allergic but he brought it out wrong TWICE! We did not get bread until our food came out, which was also cold. I was overcharged and still paid for everything. This honestly ruined my entire experience and it was for my graduation dinner. I tried speaking with the manager about my experience afterwards and he just kept saying “I’m sorry you feel that way and you said you were bring more people but did not so how am I suppose to feel?” All I can say is WOW.
