Mia Dona environment?
So Im interested in going to this restaurant, Mia Dona, with a friend next Friday for an early dinner. From what I've read about it thus far, I'm willing to give it a shot, and the general price range works for me as well. My only concern is that I've read some things about the space being a bit cramped, and such. Can anyone give any insight into things like space, noise level, and the overall environment of the place?
Thanks much. Also, if anyone can mention any other restaurants of similar food/quality/price around mid-town, that would be great too.
Mia Dona is a place that I've been to many times. It is not crowded at all. I suggest the back room; it is the quietest of them all. However, they have recently changed their menu, and, to my mind, not for the better. If you decide to go, have the meatballs- they are a holdover from the early menu. A very good alternative is Canaletto. It is on 60th Street between 2nd and 3rd. The food is very traditional,reliable and always satisfying. We are going there even more since Mia Dona has changed. They give out complimentary plates of salami, chuncks of parmesan and breadsticks when you sit down. Yum!
