Mia's Italian Kitchen is Rooted in Family

The inspiration came from one of the partner’s unique relationship with his great-grandmother – she didn’t speak a word of English, so they communicated through food. Originally from Naples, Italy, she used easy, simple, raw ingredients - an approach that Mia’s will carry over in our own menu, which will include house-made pasta, Italian sandwiches, charcuterie, and square pizzas.

The coffee was terrible, flavorless. As well, the fruit plate we received had mostly unripe, hard fruit on it. It had to be sent back. Luckily, the rest of the meal was good and service quality was excellent.

Staff was great and the restaurant is really nice. However, the food is mediocre. I had a rigatoni bolognese that was drowning in an awful red sauce with hardly any meat. My husband had the chicken parmigiana, which was good.

We love it, we eat here often the food is always great! The service is consistently good. The fresh home made pastas are fantastic and the pizza is awesome. They also have great drinks if your a Gin lover try the "True Delight" it's awesome! We also go on Wine Wednesday a lot when you get 50% off wine and you can even take any leftover home with you.

The food is just mediocre. Service was good. The building is beautiful and in a good location. I ordered eggplant parmesan and that is all I got, with a small dollop of cheese red sauce on top. The rest was dry and no pasta to go with it, which I have never seen. Who likes to eat dry eggplant parmesan? How much could a small portion of spaghetti and a bit more sauce be? That just seems cheap to me.

We were seated almost immediately, in a nice table in the back. Plenty of room for the 5 of us, service was fantastic, and food is always amazing. No complaints up to this point and this is probably my 4th time going. Excellent place to eat, keep up the great work!

We were in town for our annual export compliance training and enjoyed our dinner at Mia's. Our waiter Nathan was very accommodating and friendly. He made our visit very welcoming. The food was delicious, especially the hand made pasta. The cannolis and cheesecake we had to go, they were delicious. We also tried the zucchini fries that were a great compliment to our meal. We will be dining here again.

The warm olives with their grilled bread was outstanding. We shared the carbonara and it was the best ever. Very relaxing atmosphere and not as stuffy as the other Italian restaurant up the street. Can’t wait to go back.

Homemade pasta dishes definitely worth the below great standard waitress. We had to constantly remind the waitress we'd like some water. Getting it refilled was just as bad. All other tables seemed to have a bottle of water on the table! Also had to ask for condiments more than once. What the heck? Expensive just for pasta...no salad or even bread with the meal.

Overall, the food was good and decently priced. Great value in the pizza and the homemade pasta noodles were above-average. Atmosphere was great and the restaurant itself was very visually pleasing and crowded. My wife and I do not plan on returning to the restaurant again, due to the service that we received. No complaints with the food-- it was good, but then again there are plenty of restaurants with good food. Our issue with the service is a reflection of our individual server and not of the restaurant as a whole. Our waiter paid us little attention throughout our time at the restaurant, coming to our table solely to take our drink order (ordered two glasses of wine, but he brought us the entire bottle instead and would have opened it and charged us for the overpriced bottle had we not caught his mistake and corrected him before he opened it) and then to take our food order before we even received our drinks as we waited nearly 10 minutes for our glasses of wine to be brought out after correcting him of his mistake. The waiter at the table next to us was exemplary and served as a constant reminder of the shortcomings of our inattentive waiter. My wife wanted to order dessert after our meal, however, she quickly lost any desire of ordering it after waiting 10+ minutes for our waiter after we had finished our meal. After waiting for some time, we grew impatient and asked another waiter to bring us our bill as our waiter was no where to be found.

Due to this experience, we will certainly not return to Mia's in the future. To reiterate, our negative experience with the restaurant's service was more likely a one-off situation, rather than a reflection of the restaurant as a whole.

Special occasion with family visitors. Food wonderful. Server was nice person but evening was saved by the intervention by the manager. Still very good food. A C- night got turned into an A event by the manager. Regardless. This was our 6th visit and still highly recommend.

We've been to Mia's many times since they opened a year ago and typically LOVE it but Saturday night was different, they weren't on their game. First, our reservations weren't in their system but I showed them my confirmation email. They were able to squeeze us in but how do they just lose reservations. My wife ordered a dish that she's had before but when she got it, it had a lot of cream in it. It has never been a cream based dish. My wife can't handle cream based foods. The menu needs to reflect that the dish we got has cream like their other dishes do. Our waiter wasn't very attentive, it seemed like he either had too many tables or was preoccupied with something else.

MIa's was an ok place to eat. I would recommend it to friends that wanted a place to go in Old Town that was well located. Food was ok, but nothing to be excited about and desserts (cheesecake and cannoli) took 20 minutes to arrive after ordering.

My wife and I had a date night in Old Town. OpenTable worked like a charm, we arrived early but weren’t seated until our reservation time, this was fine. We shared a pizza for an appetizer which was great, it was hot and fresh. The issue was with our entrees, both of our meals came out luke warm at best. The sauce on my wife’s bolognese pasta looked like it was in the drying stage. The melted cheese on my eggplant parm already hardening. We will go back but only for drinks and pizza, if I’m paying almost $20 for pasta, it better have steam coming off it when it’s brought to the table.

What a beautiful restaurant in the best location in Old Town! With warmer weather, the windows were open to the outdoors, connecting us to the lively street scene. Our food was delicious, with generous portion sizes, and our waiter was entertaining and efficient. A great value!
