Mia Bella Roma is a restaurant known for its classic Italian cuisine. It has a lively atmosphere and ambiance. It is a good place for tourists because there are live music performances, flamenco and belly dancers at the restaurant every night at the stage by the restaurant patio. The wait staff is attentive and professional. The popular menu entrées at Mia Bella Roma include misto de pesce fresco, osso buco alla romana, pappardelle ai funghi porcini, the fettuccini alfredo steak, mushroom pizza, carpaccio, steamed crab legs and reggiano. Mia bella Roma has a full bar that offers a variety of cocktails, beers and fine vintage wines that compliment patrons' meals.
I know this restaurant is on Ocean Drive but the prices are ridiculous. My son ordered a $36 New York Strip cooked medium. He was brought a fatty, rare steak. We sent it back and to the restaurant's credit, they brought him a whole new steak, still fatty and cooked well done. For $36, I expect a high quality piece of meat, trimmed of fat and cooked to order.
My own dish of Short Rib Ravioli was overly salty and contained the bare minimum of short rib meat. My husband had no complaints about his meal.
In retrospect, I can see why the hostesses were aggressively trying to recruit potential diners as they were walking by on the sidewalk.
I would not recommend this establishment.
We dined here on Valentine's day and half expected to have a long wait, rushed food, and a mediocre experience, but that could not be further from the truth. We walked in and sat right down to the most attentive service and best food we had during our entire trip. Highly recommend this spot!
Pretty noisy, like the whole place itself. The atmosphere is cheap
I was with my wife in a romantic dinner....everything was terrific!!!
The server was courteous and imitate with the menu, my dish was exquisitely prepared!
The restaurant is on Ocean Drive, which is a lively street and the food was good as well. Service was good, it could have been faster, however there were a lot of people there so it is understandable.
We had a great time, but mainly because we are good friends and always have a good time, the food needs some improvement, the service was very good, perhaps it was a bad night for the Chef, who knows,
Went with a couple friends, the food was good, a little pricey, but that goes with Ocean Drive I suppose. The service was very good, I'd recommend it
best salmon tartar I have had in a while. great place for people watching and having some drinks. one of the few places in miami I've been to with live show dancing and outdoor seating. it was great. servers were very friendly also.
Great for large parties, good drinks and food! The live music was really nice
Very curteous wait staff, ambiance very friendly, good service, they had live music when I went very nice, food was very good. I would recommend it to anyone.
Food was great, .location was great - they only compliant I would have is the "clubbing" music playing pretty loud during the dinner. it wasnt late at night - rather 5:30 in the evening, definately too early for this music.
Yummy lasagna and penne with bolognese sauce. Comfortable tables on sidewalk and porch on Ocean Drive in South Beach. Band playing lively Latin music, so you are dancing while eating. Lots of activity with people walking by.
I just love this place!!! Really good food and the out side show was so awesome ...
There was a $100 mistake in the calculation on my bill. I gave the waiter a generous uptick over the mandatory minimum. I added incorrectly and the restaurant or waiter pocketed an additional $100 when there was a clear math error. I pointed out the mistake to my credit card company. Instead of fixing it, the restaurant responded insisting on payment of the erroneous amount. I called the restaurant and left a voicemail asking them to call me back to resolve the issue. They never did. Since I don't have an endless supply of time to chase down $100, I will let management of Mia Bella Roma "win" this one, but I cannot recommend this restaurant to anyone who wishes to be treated fairly and above board and I will never, ever return.
Great food, woderful mojitos! Service was great! Will go back soon
great amabience and excellent food!
We were at this restaurant once before several years back and it was fabulous. This time the food was not nearly as good, my meal had great flavor but the pasta were undercooked. My husbands risotto turned out to be mushy rice mixed with a bunch of things that did not go well together and it was doused with cheese and even though he loves cheese it was much too much. It also took 30 minutes to get out check and it was not busy. Not sure if just a bad night or new owners but I do not think we will be back again with so many dining choices in the area.
Took 20-25 minutes before a waiter came to take our order. I had to talk to hostess a couple of times before a waiter came to take our order.
Don't waste your time on this restaurant. Our order got lost, the service was terrible. Food was barely decent. Hard to get a glass of water. Order for a 2nd beer never came. Good location, but very mediocre.
Mia Bella Roma is just incredible good. I found the prices reasonable and the service outstanding. My husband and I were very happy to eat a authentic Italian food . I had Grigliata Mista di Carne (which is good to share) and my husband tried the Rissoto alla pescadora. Both dishes were incredible taste and the portions are very generous. As a Ocean drive fans, we think we found our spot. Totally recommend it !
If you don't care about food or service, but just want to be in the heart of Ocean Drive, then this place is fine - for people watching. The food was terrible and the service was only slightly better. Most of the restaurants on Ocean Drive are pretty bad, but this one was truly awful.
My wife and I ate here and we were a bit disappointed by the service. They staff seemed disinterested in us after we sat at a table. Our waiter took very long to take our orders and didn't come back until we wanted our check. The place was not crowded at all, in fact we were surrounded by empty tables. I had to flag him down to get more water for my wife. Food was decent, but for a place surrounded by similar restaurants these guys don't try hard after the intial greetings.
I dined at this restaurant twice during my recent stay in Miami. The first night we had a large party (15+). Everything went very well that night. The service was excellent; they had a couple of waiters that were there EVERY time we needed anything. We liked it so much we took different friends another night. Again, we had a large party (13). The service was very bad. It is a good thing we didn't have to be anywhere, because we waited a long time for everything. Everyone at the table was served, and my husband had to wait for his meal. If you have a lot if time, this is a good place to go.
