The fare at Mia’s Italian Kitchen knocks us out in every sense of the word 

The Dining-In Diaries

I'd been meaning to pay Mia's Italian Kitchen, the newish restaurant concept by the same folks who operate Cafe Tu Tu Tango, a pre-pandemic visit, but never got a chance.

A couple of weeks ago, I got some of Mia's good ol'-fashioned Italian comfort fare delivered and it plain knocked me out. Literally. I nodded off mere minutes after downing a zesty salad hefted with marinated cannellini beans, a couple of slices of margherita brick-oven pan pizza, a 12-ounce meatball and some roasted mushroom lasagna.

After reading the preceding passage, it's a wonder I woke up at all. Oh, and I didn't even mention the scarfed tiramisu or the Italian red and summer white sangrias guzzled alongside all this cibo matto. BTW: Mia's reopened its eclectic and Sistine'd dining room on Thursday, Aug. 27, so if you're in the area, have a bite and take in the visual spectacle. It's not like you can travel to Italy anyway.
