THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Italia Mia Restaurant Review

: Listen to the server recite the specials list at this wonderfully cozy, friendly restaurant in a suburban shopping center, especially if you’re interesting in seafood, since there usually are several excellent choices. But by no means ignore the standing menu, which offers everything from grandma-style spaghetti and meatballs to the Mexican-inspired linguine al pollo tequila, a minor triumph of pasta topped with a combo of chicken, bell peppers, cilantro and tequila-flavored cream sauce. The casually dressed clientele quietly scarfs down pasta and a good selection of wood-fired pizzas, all the while keeping in mind the necessity of saving space for the superior tiramisu. Beer and wine served.
