4 of us had the set lunch menu and chose different things. Lunch was lovely and service was warm and attentive. Will definately be back. Just one comment, need more gluten free choices .

An amazing three course meal at a very reasonable price. Limited menu at lunch time but well worth a visit. Three of us were there for lunch on Thursday and all thought it was great and would certainly recommend a visit.

I've been here quite a few times, and it's always been very good. The upstairs room is particularly nice - downstairs can get noisy sometimes. The food is excellent for the price, and the staff have always been friendly and helpful.

The food is very good and reasonably priced. The service, however, is not great. Not very friendly or attentive and pretty slow too. It’s a shame that a nice meal can be spoiled by poor waiting staff.

This Morningside Italian restaurant is welcoming with brilliant food. Staff are efficient and friendly . The venue itself is long and narrow but there is enough space to feel comfortable.

Ordered 2 Pizzas and 2 Chicken dishes. The chicken was good and enjoyed however, the pizzas were insufficiently cooked especially the margarita. The issue was acknowledged by the management and a discount given.

We took our big son for a birthday lunch. On the reservation I had remarked it was to celebrate a birthday, yet when we arrived there was no word of that, the staff were different to the normal ones we recognise. It was fine, a bit chilly. The food was very good. However having asked about a special occasion it seemed underwhelming they hadnt factored that into the occasion. I like Mia Italian and we go there frequently. There Staff have to be told what is going on and act appropriately.

Lovely meal again at Mia, we live locally and are regulars. Only comment is that we love the scallops and they couldn't get any the day we were there so had mussels, which although they were great we had hoped for scallops. Lovely sauces with all items, friendly staff and good service.

Poor experience. Table downstairs felt isolated and terrible smell from time to time apparently an ongoing problem from outside. For an Italian restaurant the food was a little bland to say the least.

Good value for money as the food was excellent. The waiting staff we’re busy hence needing to call upon staff members to order additional items etc but overall I would recommend and would return.

There was four of us dining and the food was lovely. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meal it’s a pity other things didn’t stand up to the quality of the food. There was no atmosphere in the restaurant, the waiter struggled to speak or make eye contact. We booked for 2.45 on a Tuesday and had looked at the set menu before we visited and two of our diners intended to eat from that but we were not offered the set menu and it was nowhere to be seen on the table. I wasn’t going to mention as I didn’t want to embarrass the other diners in our party but it was poor show.

Great service, nice atmosphere but unfortunate sewage smell coming up from downstairs. I will assume it was a temporary issue so I will go back.

Great food. Very sullen waiter. Old bottle of water on table. Toilets could be a little better. A great place to dine despite the service and would come back. Hopefully gale ta different waiter. Only time I’ve seen him smile is the picture on the website….

Wrong order brought to the table, cold restaurant and fish in the "vegetarian" option made for an unsatisfactory experience.
