The food was amazingly good, wow! Even the wine stood out, and the side Parmesan potatoes were simply phenomenal.
My new favorite Italian restaurant in the area! We will be back soon.

OUTSTANDING. Stylish and hip atmosphere, delicious food plated in a beautiful fashion. Excellent service by the young one lady who I believe is a co-owner I'm sorry but I don't know what her name is. We just went there for New Year's. We totally will be going back. Very strongly recommend the eggplant stack as an appetizer.

I moved out of the area 5 years ago, and when i come in to visit my daughter she always takes me to local restaurants because i miss the great restaurants in Chicago.

I rarely go out for Italian food because i feel mine is always better. This restaurant kills it! The Pizza out of the pizza oven in the front of the restaurant was perfect, Appetizer of banana peppered stuffed with sausage was yummy and every entree was great in its own way. I had Sea Bass Francaise, there was meatballs and salad (very Italian) Veal Francaise and a Special of Braised Short Rib Ravioli which i thought was the star of the whole meal. The ravioli was in a mushroom cream sauce which did not overpower the rich flavor of the short rib in the ravioli. It was truly amazing.

Did i Mention the wait staff is also really good? They are.

Every time I visit Chicago, I will request a visit to this very local gem

Wow the food here is outstanding. We have been 3 times in the last couple of months and have never gotten anything bad. The staff is great. Sammy took care of us and made sure everything was perfect. If you are looking for a romantic night or a night out with friends this is a must. They also host a paint and pour night that is loads of fun. It’s Italian food that my Italian mother in law could have made. We have had the vodka pasta, the shrimp and scallops, the chicken parmigiana and the calzones. The seafood here is exceptional. Once you try this place you won’t want to go anywhere else.


Small but quaint Italian restaurant, with great martinis, the meatballs are the best I ever had, the woodfire pizzas are delicious, can't really go wrong with anything on the menu. My wife and I love this little gold mine.

Very friendly staff. Could tell it’s family owned. Our waitress was great. Very personable. Food was also very good. Had an authentic Italian taste. Prices were very reasonable. Definitely going to come back.

This place is the definition of "Hidden Gem". Reminds me of the little family run Italian restaurants in the North Bronx we used to frequent many years ago. Romantic, friendly, and family feel that will bring us back.


We found Mia Passione through Open Table and would concur that it is a hidden gem. Our service was impeccable and the food was delicious. Everything was hot and fresh and authentically Italian. We recommend the meatballs, Parmesan potatoes, and Marsala sauce. We will be back.

Had the best Italian dining experience at Mia Passione with Samantha as our server. She was awesome! The food is amazing from appetizers to dessert! Try the Stuffed banana peppers, Chicken Marsala or Veal Francese... You won't be disappointed! They have a martini version of a Manhattan. It's called the Sinatra and it was so smooth. Aside from the meal portions which were perfect that warm fresh garlic bread was the beginning comfort that went perfect with our cocktails. Their entrees include a side of fresh pasta with choice of gravy or garlic spinach. I'm happy to report I had both. I ended my meal with the dark chocolate gelato drizzled with Italian caramel. I can't wait for my next dinner here as I work my way through their menu.

A restaurant worth visiting! The staff was very knowledgeable and they did their best to provide you a great dining experience. One of the best parts of the meal was the bread, thankfully everyone gets some at their table. It's fresh made and is warm when it gets to the table. They have their own pizza oven which is really cool and an extensive wine list and full bar. I got the calamari which was the one low point because it tasted bland although the marinara sauce it came in was great. I also got the bucatini which was phenomenal with the fresh made meatball and generous helping of ricotta. The place looked really nice inside and had a romantic feel to it and the food was worth the visit - especially the bread.

I wish I took more photos of their delicious food!! It's by far one of the best Italian food I have ever had!! A co-worker of mine recommended this restaurant to me!! I have tried their delicious chicken Francese, rigatoni in vodka sauce, fried calamari, blackened salmon, and their even more delicious Parmesan potatoes!! I wish I took more photos! Do not even think to hesitate coming here!!
