Read reviews on Yelp and decided to take my Mother and sister to eat at Cara Mia. Short walk from times square very small dining but ate around 10pm and dinner was perfect. Excellent service exquisite dinner. Extemely accommodating to all requests by sister and Mother. Will definitely go back again!

my family has been going to cara mia for years. 2 years ago i took my girlfriends and they loved it. it's our favorite place in nyc. for the past 2 years, we go for birthdays and i just regular dinners. the staff is the most pleasant and best i've ever had. i can't say enough about this place. thank u cara mia for always making me feel like im at home. we love you.

What an absolutely amazing evening. The food is exquisite and memorable. I had the Cara Mia salad with red pepper, shaved fennel, white beans, and shrimp. My wife had Luna Russa, a salad of beefsteak tomato, red onion, and gorgonzola. Both were delicious and only $8. For entrees we had a seafood with spinach linguine in a spicy marinara and a Strozzaprieti (pasta twists) with stewed wild boar. They were excellent and also moderately priced ($15-$20). The service was attentive, our waiter was very knowledgeable, and the atmosphere is relaxed and romantic. They even brought us each a complimentary glass of sparkling muscat to go with our dessert, strawberries in cream. We had a bottle of Chianti and an extra glass of wine as well as a bottle of water all for $122. Well worth it for a great evening out. If you didn't want to be as extravagant, you could easily have dinner for two for $80. And, as for the title, ""Like Dining in Tuscany,"" it really was. We just spent our honeymoon in Italy and I can say flavors were authentic and delectable. We will definitely return.

We had a fantastic meal with excellent service. One draw back is that it only has a Beer and Wine license but It MORE then makes up for that in its delicious food, presentation and service. You can?t find a better restaurant in the city for this price. There were 4 of us and we all had a glass of wine, appetizer, main dish and dessert and our cost was $55.00 each including tip. If you don?t believe me try it for yourself and you?ll be pleasantly surprised. Highly recommended and I will go back.

Simple but elegant. I love this place. Walking distance from our hotel in times square, so adorable. Friendly service, decent prices and a great overall feeling. We made reservations, which may be recommended, its small and may be packed on the weekends.

This little restaurant was really nice. We had some bread and focaccia with olive oil and 2 mini brushetta as we were waiting. My husband took the mozzarella & tomato salad and the mozzarella was really really good. I had the spaghetti zuchini with mint and my husband the penne puttanesca and both were excellent. I would recommand this restaurant. Very good price too.

I was referred to this place by my former boss in 2000 as a pre-theater eatery. Every time I have returned I have had a lovely time. It's quick and fast... with generous portions. Not a place I would recommend for a romantic meal on theater nights, as the room is bustling and the energy is high... and the table turnover is quick... but it's small and cozy enough for a nice quiet dinner after 8... or on a monday evening.
The seafood medley dish is extraordinary... big pasta bowl filled with all the joys of the sea... wine was good. I always opt to go here for before theater if I know I have a short timeframe and want a quick, decent-sized meal.
