Fabulous food. Enjoyed a great duo that was very entertaining. I would come back just for the food alone.
Wonderful hidden gem. Excellent food and service. We will happily return!
Our waitress Terry was friendly, great service and very knowledgeable with the menu
One of the best restaurants in the Chicago Metro area.
Love Patti and we are always treated kindly and always feel welcome. I’m a wine enthusiast and I can bring my own, wonderful!
The food was good but the drinks were to expensive.
Veal Francese was extremely good. In addition, service was exceptional. Jeralyn has a great personality.
Over the years have dined at Bella Mia many times, and have never been disappointed. Randy (owner/operator) continues to provide a top notch menu in a inviting atmosphere. On a hot and steamy evening (7/27/19) we dined on the patio which was a comfortable oasis. Another memorable dining adventure.
VERY NICE RESTAURANT. GOOD FOOD. GREAT SERVICE. THE ONLY DISAPPOINTMENT WAS THAT WE THOUGHT THERE WOULD BE LIVE ENTERTAINMENT ON A FRIDAY EVENING, BUT ONLY ON SAT AND SUNDAY.
The food was amazing, per usual! Randy is fantastic! The only place I ever recommend anyone to go to for great Italian food! 👍🏻
Wife didn't care for the meat balls. Said they where dry
Why can’t an Italian restaurant have spinach as a side? The menu on Open Table says spinach is a side option but Bella Mia does not offer it. 95 degrees and a side of pasta, no way. Come on Bella Mia, go next door and buy some from the grocery store or change your posted menu.
Our 40th Anniversary which I indicated on Open Table. But it wasn’t acknowledged. Other that that, it was a lovely experience.
Great place to eat!!
Fantastic! Great food, service and value! Highly recommended!
This small restaurant in a strip mall is a hidden gem. The ambiance is wonderful and the food is outstanding. Good wine list, as well. With not many nicer restaurants in the area, we tend to go here a lot. Last trip we had the special beef medallions and my mom had sautéed perch. Really good. Highly recommend giving it a try.
It’s all good! As usual!
Good food. You always feel welcomed.
Our favorite restaurant for both a very special occasion or just a night out. From the owner Randy to all his employees you couldn't ask for a friendlier or helpful group.
Food and service always excellent. Our go to Italian place.
One of the best restaurants on the South Side!! Food is truly fabulous!
This is my favorite Italian restaurant in the south suburbs. Have never had a dish that wasn't wonderful. The owner Randy, and all of his staff are eager-to-please and very knowledgeable of their menu. Randy has a nice wine list as well as an open bar. The atmosphere is homie and warm . The restaurant is beautifully decorated in warm Oak. Very definitely worth a visit. You'll be sure to enjoy yourself!
Bella Mia is my favorite place to go for a great meal and a good time. Music on Sat night.
Food and service were excellent as usual. Happy to see that the parking lot has been paved.
Ilona was a very good waitress and a bus boy (wish I had gotten his name) was very friendly as well; adding his comments about other dishes he enjoys that we might want to try in the future. Wonderful dining experience.
Very nice Italian restaurant w/great food. The only thing that could have been better would be having common ingredients for a Brandy Alexander...brandy, crème de cacao, heavy cream...which I really had a taste for that evening...kind of a throw back celebrating our 54th Anniversary. They made up for it by surprising us with a delicious dessert of spumoni ice cream/cookies!
Enjoyed the experience. Food was very delicious. The thing missing is having an expresso coffee maker.
Love this place! Food is always great and the staff always nice and attentive!
I love this place. My elderly, wheelchair bound father lives in a home a few blocks away and we adopted Bella Mia as our family gathering place. Everyone is friendly, courteous, attentive and knowledgeable. The food....we are Italian and very picky about Italian restaurants. This fine place serves just as wide an array of menu items, deliciously prepared for 1/2 the cost of restaurants up north.
Exceptional food! Our main server, Jeralynn, was very attentive. The busboys were right on time to remove dishes and to pack up leftovers. The tiramisu was out of this world. Highly recommend and a great value.
Nice fine dining experience at reasonable prices. The food was good and service excellent.
The best Italian in Chicago next to the franzese family kitchens..
First time there and it was excellent. Food was delicious and arrived hot to our table.
Good time as always. Food delicious, service attentive, busboys on top of water and clearing the table. Felt a little rushed but this is not usually the case.
Patti is a great waitress. Food is always good and it is a fun place to eat.
The food was good but the atmosphere was not. We sat on the patio and the noise from the bar next door was loud. The music selection was not good. And the server was very uninformed and not very attentive.
Nice atmosphere and great service. Server was friendly and competent .
Very good Italian cuisine
Always great experience. Wait staff good. Food good. Always feel well
A restaurant gem in the southwest suburbs, an area which, unfortunately, isn't really known for outstanding restaurants. You can tell from the clientele that they are returning customers, and that alone speaks volumes for the restaurant's value. The menu is extensive, and they state that most plates are prepared when ordered, and the freshness of the meals seem to validate that claim. Plan on trying a different item each time you visit—and you WILL re-visit this restaurant after your first visit!
