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.

Good service but a little too rushed. Server was very nice but so hyped up. Maitre d' from Sabatino's. Very good food but not 5 star. Great 1/2 way spot for us suburbanites to meet our city friends/family. Reasonably priced.

real sweet atmosphere and ambiance, good intentional service where we felt seen through the night, and the food was truly incredible - ESP. one dish that we ordered with Gluten Free Pasta... best GF Italian I have ever had. would definitely recommend. Though, prices were fairly high for me.

First the positive: the food and service are quite good, no complaints there. The noise level, however, is so high that conversation requires shouting. Also, since there is no sign in front it is easy to miss the first time you come. One more thing - Addison is a busy street and there is no place to stop in front if someone needs to be dropped off. Parking is a problem too. You can use the Home Depot lot across the street but not sure it’s legal.

We ate outside so ambiance was not a factor. Food was excellent and the services was also. The price is very reasonable for the quality.

We like mirabella as a meeting place for our city friends. I had a dining reward , which I forgot to mention to the server, so didn’t receive it. Is there any way i can get those points back?

Went for dinner with my parents while they were in town. Great service and food was tasty and filling. This place is pretty quiet with great service, so a perfect option for a family dinner. Bananas foster dessert was fun (made table-side with lots of flaming booze) and delicious!

This is an excellent restaurant with absolutely delicious steak and seafood. I have been here a number of times and have never been disappointed. Casual, friendly, atmosphere. Set with white clothed tables and low lighting. You can have a conversation without raising your voice. Superb waitstaff. Off street parking directly across the street. Be sure to try the grilled calamari and shrimp appetizer. Then follow it up with grilled salmon, or the steak topped with crab meat.

3 of us enjoyed a very hearty Italian meal in a lovely old world setting. White table clothes and napkins and a tuxedo wearing host added to the ambiance. Two of us had different chicken dishes and one had a pasta with shrimp dish. All dishes were plentiful and delicious . We had minestrone soup that was like homemade and enjoyed leftovers the next day. A lot of value for yummy food.

Outstanding food, truly pleasant staff, but the service was extremely slow. We've dine there two other times and never experienced this. The wait staff was friendly and hospitable; perhaps the kitchen was just overwhelmed. We'll certainly go back!

What a shame! I had hoped this would be a great neighbourhood gem with great food and service, and was so sad when it didn't deliver.

My filet was ordered medium rare and came out close to blue rare. The waiter wanted to argue before taking it back, and five minutes later produced a medium well briquette. The steamed vegetables were so undercooked, I had to spit out a bark-textured carrot without embarrassing myself. My girlfriend's lasagna was rubbery and not appealing. The waiter was in a hurry with us in spite of multiple empty tables.

On the positive side, the decor was charming, and the maître d was polite. I might hope that on a slow weeknight, they could provide an experience with a little more care.

I guess I would have to say that I was underwhelmed by this restaurant after having heard some good recommendations from others., in particular because Chicago has so many wonderful Italian restaurants to choose from.
It’s a large restaurant with no atmosphere. My husband had a pasta dish with seafood which was good. I had the whitefish which was served on a mound of mashed potatoes that was unappealing to look at and of poor quality. All entrees come with choice of soup or salad. We both had the salads which were certainly nothing special. As this is a very moderately priced restaurant, perhaps others like it because you get a lot for your money. Personally I prefer quality over quantity.
