About this Business
From Our Editors
Sturdy and basking in the warmth of candles suspended overhead, the tables inside Mia Cucina's Powell outpost are an apt metaphor for the spirit of the restaurant. A sense of hospitality vies with the aromas of house sauces to charm those who walk through the doors. Their menu embraces Italian staples made with fresh and locally sourced pastas along with more updated plates, from chicken parmesan to pesto-rubbed mahi mahi filets.
When they aren't browsing the cuisine, their eyes might linger on the shelves of the floating bar, where wine bottles and glasses levitate over the counter instead of bogarting the chairs. The surrounding wall mimics gray stonework, adding a rustic cellar ambiance to the setting, though the white cloths draped over each table bespeak modern sophistication. The murmur of conversations between families, friends, and couples pervades the genial space, where Mia Cucina insists "everyone's Italian."
