Best Italian Restaurant 

Mia Bella


Cleveland's Little Italy neighborhood is a tight-knit community centered around family, faith and food. Relative newcomer Mia Bella has quickly made a home here among legends by reinvigorating authentic Italian dishes with Mediterranean flair and ocean-fresh seafood. If you appreciate pastas and entrees starring lobster, shrimp, calamari and mussels, you'll love this cozy Italian bistro. Fresh vegetable penne is topped with grated smoked mozzarella, fettuccine carbonara is enriched with white truffle oil and cream, and tender veal is pounded, breaded and sautéed in a bright lemon-wine sauce with capers. Sample a little bit of everything at the restaurant's booth during the Feast of the Assumption in August.
