Success! Thanks for posting your review of Bella Mia Restaurant. You’ve done the world some good today.


I attended a Murder Mystery here with my wife and 3 other couples. Parking was a royal pain - especially at the end of the night when valet parking lot attendants blocked our car and made us wait 30 minutes to get out.\r
BUT - the food was about the same caliber of Marie Callendar's, and overpriced by about 35%. Service could have been better, but the WORST part by far was the amateur Murder Mystery play and act

We all went for group lunch and ordered all the orders in advance so we dont have to wait long... I ordered Lamonate which was good followed by Calamery (which was COLD and uncooked). In main course I ordered for Grilled Salmon with Rice (Extra well done). Food was cold.. instead of extra well done it was Raw .. completely disappointed... then group ordered different desserts like. Tiramisu (too sweet).. cheese cake ... view more

Lots of better places to eat in dowtown San Jose!

Bella Mia is lacking overall not in any one area. Our waitress was very nice, but inexperienced. She was not able to describe the dishes at all and knew nothing of the wines. We ordered the Halibut special with artichokes. While the fish was not bad, it came with cold mashed potatoes and burned Swiss Chard (we think) instead. We asked for the artichokes that were supposed to come with it and got a large bowl with... view more

Save yourself

After years of great meals at Bella Mia I was shocked at how disapointing our meals were this evening. My Potato Crusted Halibut (reduntantly served w/ mashed potatoes!) was dry, overcooked and flavorless (clearly previously frozen). The side of vegetables (ordered extra) were very overcooked and uninteresting. The Grapefruit Beurre Blanc tsted ""off"".The other meal ordered, Pork Chop, was over sauced with an overbe... view more

This is a GREAT restaurant!

My lawyer, Jeff L, kept telling me about this place so I had to check it out.
I was very impressed. Bella Mia is probably one of the biggest restaurants in Downtown San Jose with a huge formal grand ballroom with private bar, two "very clubby" inter-connected fireside club rooms, (and thats just on the second floor). There's a hidden fountain garden patio as you enter from Second Street, you pass by a very open and

Who ever designed this restaurant had very good (and expensive) taste. Lots of mahogany stained solid woods accented by heavy brass . I used to be in the restaurant biz so I can appreciate the beauty in a well designed eatery.\r

Great place for truly bad Italian food

A few weeks ago, I tried out Bella Mia for a dinner with the family. I had heard good things about it and thought that it would be a sure winner. But, even with the receding weeks, my memories of that trauma is as fresh as ever. We arrived for a last minute 7pm reservation on Sat, which I found oddly convenient for a purportedly popular restaurant. We were made to wait a further 20 minutes before we were seated at a ... view more

New owners = better service and food!

Chef Miles Neal ventually ended up at Bella Mia (from CA Cafe). He's kept some of the best of the old menu and added some major improvements. The servings were generous and we had good service. If you use the parking lot BEHIND the restaurant you can get 1 hour of free validated parking. I went with a friend and the vegetarian lasagna wasn't on the daily menu. I said something to the waiter and they made it any ... view more

Mama Mia Bella Mia! Avoid!

The new restaurant avdertises a new attitude! And the attitude is RUDE! The manager, John M. was down right hostile when we asked for help on speeding up our order. He actually attaacked us and told us it was our fault for the delays! The salads were limp and the soups were tepid or down right cold. My rissoto was greasy and the prawns were not grilled but boiled with no taste!
