Saw Mida featured on Phantom Gourmet and put it on our list of must try restaurants. Went for our Anniversary dinner, and was not disappointed. Not your everyday Italian. We feasted on arincini, calamari, Mussels and the Gem Insalada to start and all were outstanding. Not over the top portions, perfect for us as we like to try as much as we can. We were especially surprised by how good the simply dressed Salad was. For entrees we got the gnocchi and the bucatini. Best gnocchi either of us has had, ever. The surprisingly light and pillowy gnocchi was the perfect vessel to showcase the fabulously balanced parmesan butter sauce. Needless to say we had no room for dessert, but we’ll be back again to try everything else.

I was really excited to return to Mida for another excellent meal but honestly I was a little disappointed.
The Fritto Misto was delicious, nicely fried and well seasoned. My eggplant was nice but not very hot, I didn’t mention it to our server, it was getting rather busy and didn’t seem worth the effort. Cocktails were delicious and Tiramisu was scrumptious. We felt this underlying “push” from wait staff, felt uncomfortable actually, a little rushed.

We went for brunch to Mira on Sunday, October 10. The food was quite good; however, the place needs a serious cleaning. The smell near the kitchen, which is where we sat, was reminiscent of a rancid dumpster. It was completely unacceptable and ruined the dining experience. I hope the owner sees this, because Mida needs to be seriously disinfected before I go back!

Located in a rejuvenated South End, this little spot was fantastic. Although we had a 1pm reservation, they were easily able to accommodate us nearly an hour earlier and the food was simply amazing! Perfect portions, and the wait staff was fantastic.

It was fantastic I wanted to come here for months but saved it for a special occasion and I couldn’t be happier with the service and the food. I recommend the outlaw for your drink and I think I’ll have to enjoy a day of just eating all of MIDA’s garlic bread because wow it is THAT good!!! Will be back for sure, thank you MIDA TEAM!

Whoever said "Taste as many things as possible" knew what s/he was talking about. Everything we tasted was phenomenal. We had arancini, marinated olives, carbonara, and the ricotta gnocchi cacio et pepe. Service was great. Sat at a tall table, not my fave, but OK. Can't recommend it enough!

MIDA was INCREDIBLE. I go to many different restaurants, and Mida is the best I’ve seen in a long time. We ordered the Sicilian Mussels, Paccheri Bolognese, and the Cacio e Pepe. All to die for, especially the mussels. The only low point was the gelato (didn’t taste good), but it was quickly resolved with MIDA’s excellent customer service. My girlfriend and I were very pleased with the service and food! We will definitely come back. Thank you for a great experience!

Positives: Food, drinks, wine list, dessert, coffee, good value.
Negatives: Difficult parking, staff seem stressed and not real friendly or welcoming, LOUD (booming music doesn’t help), tight space, service haphazard and forgetful. Thankfully we checked our bill which was overcharged.
