Casa Mia is our new very favorite place! We moved here a few weeks ago, and have already been to this wonderful little place three times! Phil and his staff have created an amazing restaurant in Ottawa! The service is impeccable, the food is fantastic and the prices are reasonable. The cocktails are excellent; I've never had a better Cosmopolitan!... More

Great food & drinks. Place is really cute & uses the old pulley system to place orders & food comes up from downstairs. Great staff & owners come around to make sure everything is ok.

We came here with friends. Our children had pizza which were quite good, but, as always in North America, was covered in too much cheese. My pasta with Gorgonzola cheese was excellent. One of the best I have had. My wife´s soup was less interesting but ok. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere and serves some really good beer and... More

Casa Mia is a really nice restaurant in Naplate near Ottawa, IL. It is in a house in a neighborhood and you would probably not find it unless someone told you about it. They cook in the basement and bring the food up on a dumb waiter. Their drinks are good, their food is good, their atmosphere is good. I... More

If you ever find that you’ll be visiting the Starved Rock, Matthiessen, Ottawa, Naplate, Marseilles or Peru area and you’d enjoy a quaint little fine-dining hideaway, I highly recommend making a reservation at Casa Mia. My husband and I make the nearly one hour drive to Ottawa about twice monthly—we absolutely love this place and count it as our favorite... More
