Best Italian 

Mia Bella

For the frequent diner, it's easy to get jaded about dining in Little Italy. For every five-star gem there seems to be two one-star duds. But fortunately, the tide appears to be shifting thanks to the arrival of newer spots like Mia Bella, which hit the sweet spot between authentic and just plain enjoyable. Commanding a prominent corner perch in the heart of the Hill, Mia Bella could not be any cuter if it tried. Snuggle into some lush pastas, fresh seafood, Italian-American chestnuts and a few creative originals. Like any self-respecting bistro, this one treats guests like family by keeping the wine glasses full and mouths stuffed with the kind of food one would expect to find in a neighborhood called Little Italy.
