We love Mia's. In addition to excellent and reasonably priced entrees, there's an extensive tapas menu that offers many choices for meat lovers, vegetarians, fans of various Asian and other cuisines. Our particular favorites include the Tandoori style lobster tail and smoked tofu bun and among the entrees, the Indian ratatouille and the wild mushroom dish. Favorite desserts include the cranberry-pistachio tart and chocolate marzipan cake. Decor is understated but elegant. You can occasionally run into a somewhat snippy server, but generally the staff are helpful, attentive and accommodating. Best to get there early, because when the place fills up it can be very noisy.

In the heart of this nice little town, you'll find good tapas. It is asian influences but still, a lot of efforts have been put on different axis: stunning presentation, mix of flavors and prices reallu affordable. A must go if you pass by Ithaca.

We came to Mia's for a late dinner and wished we were hungrier. The restaurant interior is lovely,
Sophisticated and understated. Even though we were the last customers for the night, our server was patient, attentive, and never hurried us. The pan-Asian cuisine was excellent, and vegetarian -friendly as well. The samosas were excellent, and the Indian chicken outstanding.

Years of travel to Ithaca had never taken us to Mia until our recent Saturday night visit. Wow! We are glad to have finally discovered it. Loved the Asian tapas concept. So many choices. This is not just "traditional Asian" as it had many Indian influences as well. The food was excellent and the service even better. Will definitely go back.

We got many recommendations from locals, but this restaurant by far was the best that we visited practically every week for either drinks, appetizers, and/or full dinner. It is a fusion restaurant with an array of Asian inspired dishes. Definitely a must - Banh Mi appetizer, Roast duck and lamb chop entrees!
You must also try their cocktails created by the manager Michael!
