Excellent evening at Mida. The food was excellent. The ambience was great. The service was excellent. Did I say it was excellent? We ordered the Arancini, focaccia, polenta, carrots, eggplant parm, ricotta gnocchi, and carbonara. All were delicious. I can’t wait to go back and try other dishes.

Amazing food, amazing atmosphere. The short rib lasagna is a must! The sauce in the mussels is divine (dip your bread in it). Everything has a wonderful flavor, fresh. Overall a wonderful experience - we love MIDA. Took some friends here from out of town and they loved it as well!

The restaurants a little too noisy we were kind of shouting in straining to talk to each other. Service was not great left us alone and didn’t come back to see if we wanted more wine for a long time. Food was just OK. Could use more flavor

We sat outside and had a fantastic meal. The arancini were probably the best I ever had. Fantastic calamari and the entrees were also delicious - highly recommend the short rib lasagna. Finished with a nice pistachio gelato.

Fun evening at Mira to celebrate my daughter’s birthday. The server helped to make it extra special and even brought her a tiramisu at the end of the meal. We loved all the pasta dishes and the baked mussels made a great appetizer.

As always, MIDA is a reliably delicious meal with great service and good drinks. The expanded patio made the meal even more enjoyable in nice fall weather.

Service, food, and beverages were fantastic. Automatic, supersonic, hypnotic, funky fresh… my wife and I visited Boston for our honeymoon and capped it off with a late night dinner at Mida. The staff was extremely welcoming, ambiance was hip and romantic and the food was real and spectacular. Would highly recommend!

We always have a fantastic experience at Mida. The food abs service are fantastic. My only complaint is that the Carbonara pasta was a bit over salted.

The servers were all wonderful and well versed on both the wine list and menu. The food was mostly delish although very rich. The chef was heavy handed on oils used in every dish we ordered, even in the red sauce. One of our meals was sent back due to excessive salt. Overall we enjoyed our experience at MIDA.

Wow! MIDA was amazing and should be on everyone’s short list. We were seated at the chef’s table and watched the staff work their magic. Very fun to see a professional kitchen operate. The Arancini and Foccacia were delicious starters. We also enjoyed the gnocchi, which featured the chef’s special touch; a little lemon zest. We capped off the meal with MIDA’s very own take on tiramisu. Hard to improve on a classic, but they did. I won’t spoil the surprise twist…don’t miss it. Impeccable service and creative dishes. What more do you need for a wonderful meal!

A small but appealing menu. The vibe was elegant but not stuffy. Our server was friendly and just attentive enough. The food was delicious - we shared the salad and ravioli (don’t know how one person could eat the whole dish). Will return!
