Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We decided to book a table and eat at Mia Cucina for date night. I used to come to this restaurant a lot a few years back and the food was exceptional. But when the chef or owner changed the food wasn’t as good so...I stopped coming for a few years. I recently came back in Feb 2024 and the food was lovely again. Me and my partner both ordered the carbonara and it was to die for! Will definitely be coming back for more of our carbonara and garlic bread fix.More

We, my wife, myself, family, and friends thank Anna, of Mia Cucina and her staff for a wonderful lunch. The set menu for our function (60th wedding anniversary) consisted of starters, shared entrees, and a great selection of main dishes. We can't praise the staff...highly enough, pleasant and efficient.More

First time here. The occasion was a dual birthday family lunch. The booking on-line was simple. We brought a birthday cake which was beautifully served at the completion of our meal. The waitress took the mandatory photo's for us. Service was excellent, in a great...location with delicious food, what's not to like about that. The Spaghetti del Pescatore was very good, but the Calamari was the best I have ever had. For the quality, the prices were most reasonable. We will definitely be back.More

Dropped in and decided to stay for lunch. Best decision we have made in a while. Food was EXCELLENT. Entree sized serves was sufficient for a good lunch. The garlic prawns were the best I have ever tasted, and my wife's calamari was soooo well...cooked, not chewy as it so often is at other restaurants. Very friendly and attentive staff. Definitely worth a visit, and we will be going back.More

Wow!!!! What a fantastic experience. Great location, Incredible food and wonderful service. This restaurant is a must for all. Do yourself a favor and book now. Could not finish my meal, due to the generous portions and the value for the entire dinning experience is...excellent. My wife and I have often dinned here for many reasons, family events, parties, romance and the recent one was a charity fund raiser. The Mia Cucina Team knocked it out of the ball park, as always1 Well done and thank you once more. If you have never been to the Mia Cucina, put it on the bucket list. It is that good!More

I have been on a lengthy trip around Australia and was staying with friends in Joondalup for my final few days, so we decided to have lunch here on my final day. Although it is not part of the main Hillarys Marina complex, as it...is across the small harbour, it is still very popular even on a weekday lunch time. Possibly because they do have lunch time specials on at $20 or $22 - on the day we were there the specials included fish and chips, squid, crab linguine and Caesar Salad. My friends both chose the fish and chips, one choosing fried fish in batter and the other choosing grilled fish. She said it tasted great although it looked and tasted more as if it had been poached or steamed than grilled as it had no colour at all. I chose the pork belly on Fennel and Orange salad from the starter menu as I was not that hungry and also I wanted one of the delicious desserts on the menu. However this starter was quite filling so I only had room from a lovely affogato. My friends had the rhubarb & apple crumble and the fra angelico panacotta - they both said they were excellent and as they both cleaned their plates it did appear they were good. The service was a bit slow at first but this could be because the restaurant is quite busy and they could do with some more waiting staff but we were not in a hurry. The maitre d’ found us a lovely table on the sheltered verandah so no complaints. We had a lovely lunch!More
