Just like home. – Wonderful. Just wonderful. Not a complaint. This family run find is amazing.
nice but... – This is a very nice Italian place with very good service, but the food is only slightly above par. The good thing is they have carbonara, but for some reason it's made with proscuitto instead of pancettta. I really liked the space a lot, except for the huge (and probably cheap) painting on one side of the wall. The service and the owners are super friendly, and I recommend the appetizers in general.
just like home – this place is so unpretentious, it's hard to believe it's just 10 blocks south of murray hill. my best friend and i went in one night and split two amazing pasta dishes. we enjoyed two yummy meals (although smaller portions than we expected) and embraced the value, taste and chillness of the place...no scene here, so next time i can leave my heels at home and throw on a pair of sneakers....how great!!!!
just OK – My husband and I popped in one night for appetizers only. The guy who seated us was wearing a strange tee-shirt/thermal underwear combination. The calamari was over fried and quite chewy but the salad I had was ok. The ambiance is nice, but I wouldn't call it romantic as it's too bright and loud. Maybe the entrees are better than the app's
So-So – Casa Mia is an out-of-the way local, but nothing extraordinary. My appetizer of Polenta with gorgonzola was OK, a bit on the bland side. The entree was poached salmon with tomato, zucchini and something else. Good, except that part of the salmon tasted terrible. You know, one of those "bruised" parts or something, smelled like low tide. It was only a small part, but *whew*, what a stinker.
Service was pleasant, but server never checked up on me once, had to flag her down for help. Busboys were good.
Small room, loud, too brightly lit. Not cozy in a comfortable sense, just small. High ceilings make for lousy acoustics.
If you walk past one day, stop in. Otherwise, I doubt it's worth a trip.
Shhhh....Don't tell anyonw – Coziest restaurant I've been to in a long time. Small place, good food, comfortable setting, classic atmosphere. You would want to go again and again. Definetly a place you would want to not let people know and keep for yourself. Food tasted very fresh and delightful. Service could be a little better, but no complaints.
Great hole-in-the-wall – This is a reasonable, very good Italian restaurant with a much more attractive dining room than the undistinguished facade would suggest. An excellent meal choice in an area that is not notable for charm or meal bargains.
The Best! – This is the place you tell your friends, "I know this great, little place...." Highly recommend!
Food is extremely good and reasonably priced. The cozy restaurant is immaculate. Definitely get the feeling you are in a family owned/run business. You are pretty much left alone to linger over your food/wine, but not ignored.
