“Off the beaten path Gem”
Reviewed 17 April 2014

Italia Mia was unknown to us until a vacationing Brooklynite sitting next to us at a local watering hole gave us an unequivocal recommendation. "The Sauce is what it's all about" was his comment. Naturally, we gave it a try, and were rewarded with a new entry in our regular restaurant rotation. Yes, the locale, strip mall to be kind, is almost a turn away in ambiance, but get past it for a real treat. Inside is a little dated and more typical of a family run spot than fine dining. But if you came here for the food, prepare to be rewarded. Home made is defined by this spot. The sauces are to kill for, the portions beyond generous, the pizza good, the sub sandwiches beyond good. Mom and Pop all the way, but I'd like to see the group that can actually finish their meals. Cheap by today's standards, huge value for the buck; this is a must for Italian food fans who aren't looking for candle lights and glitz. If you going for real home made Italian food, this is a must....

“A real gem”
Reviewed 2 December 2013

This Italian restaurant is hidden away in a small shopping center. The food is excellent and there is always plenty for leftovers.

“The Best”
Reviewed 7 November 2013

Authentically delicious! All my Italian friends go for the pasta which HAS to be the best or they'll eat at home. Friendly with many regulars including singles, couples, and lots of families and celebrations! Stuffed mushrooms a favorite appetizer and the meatballs are SO LIGHT!!! Do yourself a favor and go! Very busy on Friday nights. Also great lunches!!!!!

“Italian dining.”
Reviewed 5 August 2013

Even though we had a bit of a wait, the food was delicious and the service was good. They were enjoying a busy take out business also, so if you want some good Italian food, this is the place.
