What a hidden gem ... I first enjoyed a b'day brunch - with a small and fabulous menu with something for everyone (b'fast pizzas to egg dishes to french toast/brioche) and no "breads" really - instead of eggs benedict/florentine served on english muffins, it was on a veggie hash that was superior (potatoes and veggies). you won't miss the bread. Returned on a weeknight for dinner and OMG, it was outstanding. Grilled calamari was wonderfully presented, perfectly cooked, 1/2 lemon and a nice little bit of side salad. Focaccia bread on table with oil & freshly grated parm put onto each diner's bread plate were a nice touch. Had daily fish special of trout on a bed of cannelloni beans with artichoke, caper, pepper sauce. Dining companion had Caesar salad and a parm-encrusted pork loin and a MASSIVE bowl of chocolate gelato. She gave me the biscotti and it was, seriously, "to die for". Bar is well stocked, wine list very satisfying. And prices are SO reasonable. While a bit out of the way, it's so worth the trip! We'll be back!

I ordered the saltimbocca and I literally could not get my very large steak knife thru it. It came in 3 medallions. Once could not be cut at all. Once could be cut but it was all gristle and couldn't be eaten. One I choked down because we had plans to see a show and couldn't wait around for a new meal. All they offered to do was comp my drink. I said, "that's a little weak don't you think." Waiter took it away and came back after speaking with the chef and said they would comp 1/2 the meal instead. Of course this was less than the free drink. I didn't have time to fight them on it and I was with friends so I paid and left. This isn't about the bad meat. That happens. This is about the cheap-a__ way they attempted to make it right. The whole meal should have been comped. Plenty of other Italian restaurants in the area. Go there.

A group of us went for a mini HS Reunion. The food was excellent, the service was outstanding, the atmosphere was perfect. All except one of the entrees were good, the appetizers were great. One entree had a bit to much garlic for him. The owner did offer to make him one with less garlic, but he said he ate some of it and he was full. They were very accommodating to us. We stayed and talked almost to closing. Great friendly place for an Italian meal in the Edgebrook neighborhood of Chicago.

This restaurant is in a great neighborhood in Edgebrook, and is easy to get to and easy parking. The decor is fresh and new, and the front opens up for al fresco dining when the weather is nice. The food was delicious, and the wait staff was excellent. They have great specials which we all ordered.

We have been to Mia Figlia several times and have never been disappointed. It is a neighborhood place where you will be welcomed by the owner and served authentic food.
The prices of food and wine are reasonable. We have always enjoyed the food and ambiance and will certainly visit again in the near future.

Our expectations were moderate - a family restaurant in a non-descript neighborhood. But the food is outstanding. The menu is thoughtful and goes beyond a typical red-sauce Italian joint. We had good bread to start, lovely and generous salads with very good dressing, and excellent salmon and chicken dishes with carefully selected accompaniments. Our waiter was outstanding. We'll definitely come back.

Mia Figlia is always a great experience - from the delicious selections to good customer service to the tender care chef and owner, John Boudouvas, puts into every dish. Mia Figlia is one of my favorite restaurants in the city and serves some of the best Italian food I've ever had!

Great little place in a relatively quiet part of the area. We have been going in the fall now for about three years. We live about 4 hours away and always plan on trying to squeeze this place in when were in Chicago.
Great chef , fantastic server respected the fact we were in a hurry as traffic had taken away our time to relax and enjoy a nice dinner.
In and out for dinner in 40 minutes was much appreciated.

The restaurant was originally recommended by a friend who has good taste, so I was confident that it would be wonderful. We've been back several times and have enjoyed really delicious meals. Portions are so generous that we've taken food home at the end of the meal. In fact, we seldom have room left for dessert. The receptionist and servers are helpful and friendly.

Mia Figlia is our go-to Italian restaurant. The food is great! The owner/chef is personable and helpful. The wine list is somewhat small but perfectly adequate. The service is personable and good. Decor is adequate but not outstanding. The only limitation is that the room is noisy if there are a lot of guests. Bottom line is that this is a great chef-owned neighborhood Italian neighborhood restaurant.

Our first time here being in the new neighborhood. Loved the wine list. The only and I mean only issue is sitting so close to someone. The couple next to us overheard our conversation and decided to chime in. Thankfully no family secrets exposed!

Power was out for part of the restaurant, but with windows wide open it was still lovely. The wait staff remains (upon many occasions, superb). Food did not suffer, and this place remains one of our favorites. How many places can you enjoy table service for an outstanding brunch for a reasonable price! We travel 45 minutes and it's well worth it. Dinner too is wonderful and after three dinners, still think this place is a gem. Just wish we lived closer to Mia Figlia.

Overall, we were a little disappointed in Mia Figlia. Though the portions of food were
generous, the quality of the food was a little disappointing. The prices were also
excellent, but I said to my wife -- I'd rather pay a little more and have the food taste better.
I had the fried calamari and the chicken parmiagana. My wife had the caprese salad and the
eggplant parmiagana. It wasn't that the food tasted poorly. It just didn't hit the standard that we are used to.

we've been going to mia figlia for a long time, and the food never disappoints. it's great to have a restaurant like this in the neighborhood. i'd also like to comment that our server, greg, is always extremely accommodating and personable. we had a great time saturday, as did our friends.

OMG -- Hosting foodie friends from Toronto and they absolutely LOVED every morsel! Food is outstanding - Chef John works wonders! Service was efficient, gracious, helpful but not obtrusive -- bravo John Paul! Just a delight. And a great value!!!!

Our server, Biancha, was warm, friendly, efficient and knowledgeable.
Everyone enjoyed their menu choices. For the four of us, we shared a bottle of wine, two appetizers, two salads, four entrees and one desert. The bill with tax and gratuity was well under $200.00, which we all felt was priced reasonably.
This is a neighborhood gem I would place on my "to go" list.

This place is a wow 5 on the wow scale of 5. Cozy neighborhood Italian restaurant. Not in Chicago but Skokie of all places. Put it on your list if you are in the area.Food was so authentic! It can get a loud. It's a small place and it was packed! Service was spot on and little slow out of the gate. JD was our server and he was very good made some excellent wine recommendations.
