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.

Arrived after making a reservation at 730pm via the OpenTable App. Wasn’t seated until 8:15. The hostess was seating individuals in order of their arrival. If that is the case, why am I making a reservation via Open Table? Service at the table was great but the kitchen was slow/busy that evening and we waited 75 minutes to receive our drinks, complimentary bread, and order of soup despite placing order for entree as well. We took the check without entree since we were short on time but I imagine it would have tasted delicious. I just wish I had the chance to try it.

Tldr- food and service were great, but dinner service took too long for our taste

I made a reservation for my birthday originally for 7 people and it turned out to be a little more. They were extremely accommodating and kind. The staff was very attentive and prompt. The food was so good and fresh. My overall experience with them was amazing and I felt very special for my birthday. They brought out champagne and cake as a treat. Unfortunately I was allergic to the first cake they brought out because it had coconut on top and they promptly brought a chocolate cake instead which was delicious. I would definitely recommend this place to my friends and I suggest trying the house margarita or the mojito delicious and strong.

Food was very mediocre: The Seafood Lasagna was drenched in sauce and the Potato Gnocchi was very bland (I had to add a decent amount of red pepper flakes to gain some flavor). The homemade bread and Chocolate Mousse Cheesecake were very good.

I had a private party for my daughter in the back room. The management staff took such good care of us and went above and beyond extreme hospitality. The food was delicious. The service was top-notch.

It was quite busy when my girlfriend and I visited for an anniversary dinner, making it a bit noisy but still personable. Best Italian food I’ve had- I recommend the smoked duck ravioli. Utmost service.

We went specifically for brunch and it was delicious. They had multiple egg benedict versions, of which our table had two. Both were yummy (salmon and Italian breakfast). The Italian pancakes were a hit both with my father and kiddos. And my breakfast sandwich was excellent especially with the pesto and lamb bacon. Kudos to Mia Bella! Best part was good fresh fruit (grapes, cantaloupe, pineapple, watermelon) was served with the breakfast meals. Great place to take kiddos for brunch too!

The whole wheat tortellini was to die for! We picked this place for a birthday lunch for a friend and I am so glad we did. My coworker loved how fresh the salmon was. The bread is excellent, I didn't care for their oil and herbs because it had a sweet taste to it but all else was fabulous!

For what we spent I was surprised I was charged $3 for club soda with lime. My tab with tip for 3 people was over $150 for brunch. With adult beverages. You’d think they comp the club soda. It’s just gassy water...But I like this place, the staff & Service is always great & friendly. It’s very intimate. I will come back... js maybe forgo a charge for club soda on a tab like mine....

We have been to Mia Bella many times and never heard it so noisy. The music was loud which seem to make guests talk louder than usual.

Everyone but me raved about their dinner. I had never had a complaint until now. I had the red fish special with shrimp on top. The fish was delicious, but the shrimp were not fresh. I mentioned it to the waiter, and he just said, “oh.”

We will of course return to Mia Bella, but won’t order shrimp in the future.

We loved everything about this place. Atmosphere was wonderful. Quiet enough to have good conversation, but not so quiet you feel like you have to whisper. The Seafood Lasagna was amazing. Our server was also excellent. His recommendations were spot on! He did an excellent job describing the menu based on everyone’s individual preferences. The rest of the service staff was on point. I personally drink a lot of water and my glass was never empty for more than 1 minute (and the same for the wine). Pretty reasonable prices too...nothing outrageous. Parking garage was convenient too. Overall, an exceptional experience. Highly recommend this place. We’ll be back!

Really good ambiance - nice decor and energetic vibe. This is not a quiet, romantic type of setting as it can get pretty lively. Food was fresh and seasoned well. Service was good. Will definitely be back soon!
