Very nice dinner. All three of us had different entrees and all were good. It was my husband’s birthday and they brought Crème Brûlée and champagne for each of us to enjoy. The tables were all well spaced and the staff all masked.

Three of us ate lunch at Mia Bella. The waitress was very special and made sure our service was top notch.
We ate on the patio, a beautiful day, and food was very good.

My husband's favorite for each and every visit to Mia Bella is Chicken Parmigiana, and mine - grilled salmon! And among the desserts, we highly recommend creme brulee and tiramisu - both are very smooth and not too sweet (very important for the people watching their sugar consumption).

Outside seating, dog friendly. Excellent service. Food is superb. They know how to make a perfect risotto. The scallops are tender, perfectly cooked. Ossobucca was great. Deserts are exquisite.

The food is always outstanding. Service was a little off. I don’t know if it’s because we sat outside or not because I’ve never experienced a drop in service while dining inside.

We think this is the best Italian restaurant in our area, maybe in all of North Houston. The food is consistently excellent, and the wait staff is always attentive and friendly.

We spent a wonderful evening with friends at Mia Bella. As requested, we were seated at a "quiet table". served by a very knowledgable and attentive "Sabrina", and frequented by the owner insuring all was well. It was our first....but certainly not last.....evening dining at this exceptional restaurant. The food was delicious and beautifully presented!

The place is beautiful, the service is authentic, everyone is really nice. The food was good, but not as good as I was expecting, according to the place and price. I think seen the canned mushrooms instead of fresh ones, gave me the impression that the food is not of the best quality or fresh. I also asked for inked squid risotto, and they told me that the squid ink was already on the pasta so they couldn't prepare it for me.

We arrived at our reservation time and were seated near the right rear of the restaurant. Not one person acknowledged us or came to our table for 10 min. My husband had to walk up to the hostess station and asked for someone to wait on us. Still no one came by. There were two tables within close proximity of ours each with a different waitress and not once did either waitress even look in our direction when it was clear we were looking for someone to wait on us. A kind waiter finally happened to come by our table and asked if we had been waited on. We told him no and he said "Well then I will be your server" which indicated to us that the hostess area had not even told anyone yet that we needed to be waited on. He was already waiting on three or four tables outside so he had his hands full. He took our order and within the next 10 min the owner or manager came by and apologized for our wait which we greatly appreciated. We ordered a crab cake for $16 and waited a fairly significant amt of time to receive it. It looked unappealing and had a somewhat fishy smell to it and was unfortunately lukewarm. In the meantime, our waiter was doing his best to keep up with us and the outside tables he was waiting on. Our second round of drinks it took a considerable amt of time. We ordered salads which were lukewarm. We ordered our entrees which thankfully were good. It was my husband's bday which I had indicated on our reservation. Many nice restaurants will acknowledge a special occasion by bringing a small piece of cake or a cookie or something to the table just as an acknowledgement of the person's special day but that was not the case here. We typically order a dessert and coffee for dessert but after being at our table at this point for two hours, we were more than ready to go.

I am not sure if it was the service or the kitchen that fell below standard on my last visit. I ordered soup and entrée. I waited for a while before the wait staff returned. When she did, she brought the soup out with the entrée, so the entrée cooled while I was eating my soup. The bread did not arrive until I was almost done eating.
