Mia Bella Trattoria – which translates as “My Beautiful” Trattoria, is a delightful combination of Italian tradition and regional American twists. With multiple locations, the dining destinations are fun, intimate and moderately priced just like the traditional Trattorias where Italian families gathered for wine and delicious food.

Wine lovers will find a pleasingly extensive list of evenly priced wines while those seeking cocktails will find the same combination of classic recipes and creative mixings which set the menus apart.

    As always, Mia Bella's does not disappoint. I eat here primarily for business lunches as it is a short walk from my office in Greenway Plaza and really enjoy the food and the ambience. The staff is attentive and the food is consistent and tasty. I especially enjoy the "Jalapeno Cilantro Fettuccine Scampi"...it has become a "go-to" entree for me as well as the Tomato Bruschetta.

    We always have a great experience here. The menu is varied and has large portions. It is very gluten friendly conscious. The service is attentive, kind and knowledgeable. We’ve eaten here on a date night, hosted a baby shower, and a couple’s dinner. Thanks for always creating excellent meals and experiences!

    Beautiful place . The staff is very friendly . We enjoyed our dinner very much . The price was a little on the higher side . I got lentil soup and it was delicious , priced well . My Husband had the burger with garlic potatoes , was priced a little on the higher side in my opinion. He did love it . I would recommend this restaurant. Next time we will try the Italian dishes . Great menu with a lot of options .

    The food was very good. Mussel appetizer was great. Pasta with lamb meat balls was excellent. The bread and oil was great. The roast chicken was almost there but chicken breast was overdone and dry. Overall a great value.

    Every dish (Sicilian braised short ribs, seafood lasagna, chicken piccata mods mio, grilled salmon) was raved by the diners. Cocktails were also excellant, including the Lemoncello Martinii, French 75. Service was impacted by a number of large tables, but was managed well

    My family and I went to Mia Bella as a pre-wedding celebration. The food was really good. The Brussel Sprouts and Mushroom stuffed with risotto were excellent. The only complaint was the alcoholic drinks were not great. I would definitely recommend Mia Bella.

    Enjoyable except we were seated next to the kitchen and service area when there were plenty of other open tables. Our waiter seemed a little frazzled and I had to ask him to clear dishes & bring plates. Food was serviceable & a manager checked on us a couple of times which I appreciated.

    Love Mia Bella! This was the 2nd time my wife and I ate at Mia Bella, and I am looking very forward to going there again. Everything we have tried so far has been great, and they have the best risotto and grilled artichokes I have ever had! The menu is extensive, so once you try Mia Bella, you will want to come back again and again to try new things. The waiters and service personnel are excellent too, and they are really nice. Too, the in charge person (the owner or manager I imagine) seems to take great pride in the restaurant and in the food and wine they put out, which is great to see and which helps assure everything is perfectly prepared. He too is very nice like everyone else. If you are a fan of Italian restaurants, you need to try Mia Bella soon!!

    The staff at the bar made good wine suggestions and made us feel comfortable. Our server, Corina, was excellent and personable. The food was outstanding - including the soup and the sides on the entrees. We chose to dine outside on the patio. The noise level inside the restaurant not tolerable for us, since older persons cannot hear each other with so much ambient sound. The GPS directs a person to the front of the restaurant on Richmond. You could make it clear on your web site that the parking garage is on the next street, and also provide the address of the garage entrance. I was pleased to see a security guard in the garage.

    First time dining at this restaurant. We had a special family dinner for a family member who was being deployed. We had a great time and it was special. Everyone loved the Chicken Parmesan, which was specifically why we selected Mia. I chose the Jalapeño & Cilantro Shrimp Scampi and I was disappointed with it based on taste and quantity. If we go back, I would recommend the make your own pasta which has excellent options. My daughter did that and it was generous portion and tasted excellent. Appetizers were fantastic. Drinks were very good. Desserts were very good. I had the pistachio cannoli and it was excellent.
