The restaurant serves authentic Italian food. The pasta dishes were pretty good. Not the best I ever ate but tasty. The cannoli desert was pretty small but ok. The atmosphere isn't that special.

One "hit" and other "misses" on this visit. Arrancini appetizer was excellent - spicy sauce and great flavor. Ribeye steak was well seasoned but not very tender - definitely would not suggest this dish. Eggplant parmesan was just "ok". Rice pudding was quite disappointing as it was essentially rice with sweetened milk/cream -- really nothing resembling a pudding. The restaurant... More

Traveling to Cleveland most time it's dinner at the hotel and that can get a bit old. Having some time to venture out I made my way to Little Italy and was told that all of the restaurants will provide you with a good meal. Mia Bella exceeded my expectations! I ordered a veal dish and it was prepared very... More

There are many great restaurants in Little Italy but this is our favorite. Food is always amazing. Staff is very attentive.

The ambiance beats the food. The shrimp and cheese appetizer (won awards) is pretty good. I am a tough critic coming from an Italian family. We had the gnoccis, chicken cacciatore and tortellini dishes - all were mediocre. We took home the leftovers yet left them behind in the hotel. The staff is friendly and entertaining - good personalities!

Staff is great. Wine fair at best. Bread was just plain Italian bread I could have bought at grocery store. Was disappointed based on the reviews I had read.

We had a few hours to kill after a Saturday afternoon college visit and chose Little Italy as our destination. Totally charming neighborhood! We randomly chose Mia Bella for a late lunch and were so pleased that we did. We split a Caesar salad, the chefs special pizza and the cheese tortellini. The portions were generous, the server was attentive... More

Mia Bella was a new spot for us and we were not disappointed. All the traditional atmosphere of Cleveland's Little Italy district is combined with some of the best Italian food we've ever had. Fresh, tender gnocchi, tangy marinara sauce, good wine selections & outstanding customer service were all served up in abundance. This is not a large restaurant, so... More

We ordered 2 dishes of pasta and both were excellent. It has some spicey ingredient in the sauce and it was simply amazing. The atmosphere is very cozy and cute. I would recommend the restaurant for the special occasions or first date. There was nothing special about the bread though. The price was reasonable also. I would visit there again.

Once upon a time, locals went nowhere but Little Italy for Italian food. Then, the restaurants went downhill and good Italian could only be found in suburbs. Now, the suburban places are going the way of many Italian restaurants, while Little Italy has restored its reputation. Only a few years old, Mia Bella is the best Italian in Little Italy... More
