This restaurant is now at Lake Norman in Mooresville. We love this place, we feel like family when we visit. They have delicious food and the best Stromboli I have ever tasted. They are located out 150 west of Mooresville in a new shopping area with Harris Teeter. I took my Italian friend from Indiana there when she was visiting and she fell in love. Great food!

I am not sure if they are still open or not. I hope they are or that they re-open soon. The food there was the best I ever had! Great atmosphere. Great service. My mouth waters thinking of their eggplant parm!

I havent seen this place open for awhile and I was wondering if they were still open. My family and I enjoyed going there. Their prices were alright and it was great for a special treat, they were not super kid friendly unless you got the right waiter. If they are still in buisness I would encourage them to be more kid- friendly!

Great service!!! I've been a few times and never had to ask for more drink, ask for more napkins, etc. The food, is ok! The Lasagna is my favorite - very good, VERY big! All in all, will go back!

They have good food and a great atmosphere. The staff is friendly and willing to answer questions. It's a nice place for a dinner out or quick bite at lunch.

I agree with the below review regarding the restaurant decor. It was "inherited" from the previous "Charleston chops" and has not been changed much since then.
This place was special to me and my husband because that's where we had our dinner following by proposal.
6 years later we came here on August 21st to celebrate our anniversary. Frankly, we were disappointed.
We ordered the bottle of wine, the server did not present it to us and did not offer to taste, she just directly poured it into the glasses. She was talking to us as she was passing by our table.
The fettucine with chicken was so boring plain! Tasted like boiled chicken breast mixed with pasta and alfredo sauce. Honestly, it tasted like frozen dinner!
We definetely will not be back.

My wife and I were recently there for a birthday dinner on a friday night. When we first approached the establishment I was appeased to noticed an italian fashioned fountain and large wooden doors accompanied by a red carpet. I was only on vacation from Brooklyn and didnt expect to see anything this nice in the dirty south. When we walked through the beautiful doorway we were greeted firmly by two young ladies whom brought us to our destination. We sat at a round table on the second floor overlooking the entire restaurant. I noticed many chandliers and lovely cherrywood which is my favorite. We were greeted with smiles by our server and she instantly got our drink order and brought them to us quickly. The drinks were stiffer than a dead body (which is a good thing). The bread was good but I have tasted better. I could tell it wasnt fresh. We started with calamari, brushcetta, and musssels which I felt was the best part of the meal. My wife ordered the risotto which stood up to the server's descritpion. I ordered the NY strip which I thought was fairly tastey but I had a side of spaghetti with tomato sauce which I must say was the worst I have ever tasted. For dessert we were given a complementary tiramisu with a candle which was very good. We also ordered a massive chocolate cake which was heavenly. We then noticed there was live music at the bar so we proceeded over. We were greeted promptly by two Italian Long Islander's and a beautiful girl from Long Islander as well. They were amazing. Our drinks were perfect every time and they treated us like "family". They kept saying "join the family". I loved them. The Boardwalk Band was also fun and very inviting. At one point Mike and Anthony even saluted with us just as if we were family. I am bakc in Brooklyn now but if I come back to the Carolina's I know where to go. EXCELLENT SERVICE!!!

My Son and I went here on a recommendation and found it very good. Service was very good, and I was pleased to find out that the Chef was the Owner.

I had the Fettuccini ala nonna and couldn't finish it all.
My Son had the Rotini Amatriciana and he said that was very good. We'll be back.

My husband and l recently ate here and found the restaurant to be very nice inside and the wait staff was excellent. The FOOD was HORRIBLE! Small portions for the price and NO FLAVOR. l was expecting a rich tomato basil garlic sauce and I could not even tell l was in an italian restaurant. The sauce was the worst excuse for italian sauce l have ever tasted ..very bland..very little flavor and not much of it. l would expect an italian restaurant to have a handed down sauce from some ancestor that is awesome and considered the BEST by all. This tasted like it came out of an institution size can. We were shocked that it was so bad. My husbands meal was supposed to have a garlic lemon wine sauce and you could not even tell there was any sauce on it. No lemon flavor, no garlic flavor or visible and no wine flavor. Absolutely NO FLAVOR!! We were very disappointed and can not believe anyone would give this restaurant a good rating since ours was so bad. The bread was good though..they say it is made right there. If they are making the sauce there...they should find someone's old handed down tried and true recipe because theirs misses by miles. Get a real italian recipe and we might come back. The service and atmosphere was good. l guess now we know why we had no trouble getting a table on Friday night. WIth so many northerners moving down, there is bound to be someone that has a great sauce recipe..FIND THEM and we will come back. Frankie's on Morehead has better sauce and food. The amount of food for the price was not good either especially since pasta is a low cost food...A BAD EXPERIENCE ALL AROUND I AM SORRY TO SAY.

My husband and I joined friends back in January at Mia Famiglias. None of us had eaten there before, but we all had our "clipper coupons" and decided to give it a try. So glad we did! The atmosphere is wonderful! Gorgeous chandeliers, lots of brass, candles on the tables and the huge fireplace (which was roaring on that cold January night). The waitstaff was friendly and knowledgeable. The cocktails were expertly mixed and the food was divine! The pasta is homemade and the salads are creative and fresh. My husband had a dish that wasn't even on the menu. (The waiter asked the chef to prepare it just for him and he did)! I had a wonderful steak with mushrooms and Gorgonzola cheese. So Good!
Our second visit was our anniversary. I called and made reservations and mentioned to them that it was our special day. The waitstaff treated us like royalty. There was even a long stem rose set at my place when I was seated. The food was once again memorable and lovely.
Mia Famiglias has become my husbands and my "place". Mia Famiglias is truly a terrific restaurant and has the ability to serve up a romantic dinner, a perk up for the middle of the week, or a special function. Highly recommended!
We have since eaten at Mia Famigias several times and are planning my birthday dinner there next week.
