Though the dining room is lit low and shows the simple elegance of white tablecloths, there’s a certain home-style vibe to Mirabella Italian Cuisine & Bar that you’d have a hard time finding at other Chicago temples to red meat. The prices are somewhat more modest, too, and at Mirabella Italian Cuisine & Bar, you can enjoy some classic apps, a very good bowl of pasta, and a well-prepared steak, with wine, for less price and just as much enjoyment as you could expect at many downtown steak joints.

Nice outside dining area. Food quality may be slipping (pork chops). White wines seem stale. Red wines are better. Varied menu selections. Not sure what will happen when weather turns cold.

The fried calamari was great. It was seasoned well and cooked perfectly. We almost ordered more. The veal Parmesan was good, though the portion of pasta that came with it was pretty small. My boyfriend ordered the special for the night (steak and shrimp) and his medium rare steak was extremely rare to the point that he struggled to cut through it. He ate most of it because he didn’t want to cause a scene by sending it back. We also found a hair stuck/fried to one of the vesuvio potatoes as we were finishing up. We decided to just tip our server and leave. Overall, the service was good, the servers made sure my glass was never empty. The couple of issues we had with our food (the hair) is why we more than likely won’t be coming back.

Make sure you waiter reads back the order to you. Waiters are very busy because of staff reductions. Very nice outdoor dining area. Food is very good. Large portions, some of which can and should be shared. Watch your wine-by-the-glass service. I'm not sure if what you order is what you get.

We had the inside dining room to ourselves (unfortunately) so there was no people watching or eavesdropping. But the food was outstanding (salads and crab cakes, linguine with clam sauce, and chocolate cake) andthe service terrific and friendly. We will be back soon.

A neighborhood institution where Chef Arturo has been serving the most delicious of Italian food. My wife had Ravioli in vodka sauce, while I had the Veal Marsala. Our server, Manuel was very informative and attentive. See you again, soon!

Had a great time yesterday dining at Mirabella. Ernesto was our sever and was a true gem, he was attentive and ensured we had a great time. We had a bottle of Prosecco, several pasta dishes, and obviously some cheesecake for dessert. Everything was delicious and the service was perfection, we will be back.

Mirabella is one of our favorites. The menu is varied and everything is great, the service outstanding, and portions huge! The grilled calamari, crab cakes, antipasto, and veal chop parmesan were all outstanding choices. It was very quiet for a weekday night. We will return soon.

The post-COVID expanded menu was a welcome change. My salmon Vesuvio was done perfectly, as was my wife’s veal piccata. I’m glad to see they were able to reopen just as good as before!

Nice staff. Pasta is good but way overpriced. Non-pasta entrees weren't good at all. Chicken marsala was had a tart taste. Overall very expensive for mediocre food.

Wonderful neighborhood Italian restaurant. The food was exceptional, as was the service, by our waiter. Eddy, the host, was fabulous. Small bar but very attentive bartender. Will definitely be back to try the filet, lamb chops, steak Diane and flaming desserts!

The quality of the food was very good but the potatoes and veggies that came with it were ice cold.
I know it was crowded but maybe the kitchen is not equipped to handle it.
The waiter forgot our Tiramisu order and then forgot another order of wine.

The noise level was extreme. Could barely hear when talking at the table.

Might try it again on a weeknight when hopefully it's not so crowded.

Felt like you could have a very mid-twentieth century dining experience: shrimp de jonghe, filet oscar, tuxedoed host, wood paneling. Enjoyable.

I made a 7pm reservation on Valentines Day for 2 people almost 2 weeks out. Once we arrived the host completely ignored me. Once i got his attention he wrote my name on a sheet of paper and we proceeded to wait. We waited and stood almost an hour and the host just walked past us. There were people walking in that knew the staff and they were given drinks from the bar and seated before us. We finally left close to 8pm after being ignored. As a General Manager of the restaurant, i completely understand the dynamics of a busy Friday night. But, to be completely ignored, this was unacceptable. I really wanted to give a better review because the food looked amazing. I’m a local in the area and was looking forward to coming here. Hope this serves you all well for the future.

We went on a date right before Valentine’s Day. We went at 4 pm and we were the only people there. The music was great and we loved the ambiance. They were very attentive and even gave us complementary potatoes. We had the grilled calamari, surf and turf, cheesecake and gelato. Everything was delicious!

We had a 7:30 reservation, arrived at 7:15 and told that the wait time would be about 20 minutes. That was fine since were we early. We did not get seated until after 8:30. In talking to people in the bar while we were waiting, found out that this is typical on Saturdays. They were definitely under staffed.

This was our 2nd time to Miraella. It was a Saturday night (also restaurant week) and very crowded. Our reservation was for 7:00 and we were seated at 7:40, ate dinner at 9pm. Service was very slow and at no point did the waiter or host apologize. Our experience was the polar opposite of the first time we were here.
Food is very good and offers a nice 1/2 way between city and suburbs.
I would go again and offer them another chance but would not give a glowing review if this happens again.
