We were told that this was a good place for Italian food. I mentioned this to a couple who wanted to take us out for a thank you meal. This couple is Italian. Well, the food itself was tasty, but it had way too much oil on it and the portions were very small. The prices were not that bad but for the portion size, it made it pricey, especially when you have people leaving the table and are still hungry. We got a lasagna to go for someone who was home ill and I was told it was terrible.

The chairs are the most uncomfortable we have sat on in a long time. All 4 of us had sore backs when we left.

On the good side, the staff is very pleasant and accomodating. The fresh bread they serve is wonderful - we had 3 loaves.

The restaurant is easy to find and there is plenty of parking.

Would I recommend this restaurant - no I would not and we will not be back.

Sorry.

Dear Holly5_12,

Thank you so much for your feedback, we are sorry to hear that you weren't pleased with your meal and that you wont be back. We strive to provide great food and service, and make our customers happy. Regarding the oil in the food, we are very conservative on the usage of oil, we drain the oil of our fried menu items and just have a couple of main dishes that are cook with olive oil. We would love to know what dishes did your party order to address the issue in the future. For the portions size, we portioned and weight all our servings to make sure the are always the same, and most of our customers take some leftover. We will love to have the opportunity to make things right, and if you change your mind and decide to give us a second try, please ask for me Claudia (FOH Manager) and I will personally make sure you have a great experience.

This was our first time dining at Trattoria Mia and we will be back! The restaurant takes reservations....this is a plus in the busy season! The restaurant is comfortable, welcoming and a great evening out as a couple or small group! The wait staff was exceptional! The food was extremely tasty! Everyone at our table loved their food selections! This is a hidden gem in Fort Myers!

We have gone to this sweet little trattoria a number of times and are always pleased at the excellent food and service. Our recent experience was non different with our party very pleased with the tortelloni, the shrimp risotto and the salmon. In fact, our guest raved about the salmon.
Get there before 6 and enjoy half price off the house wines!

We have visited all the high rated Italian restaurants in the area for the last 7 years, after having knee surgery we have been ordering Uber eats and Trattoria popped up being an option. Caesar salad is one of my most favorite foods ever,they hit it out of the park. The ravioli was to die for. The marsala would have been perfect if I would have ordered the mash potatoes. The bread was so good alone without anything. We are going to the restaurant this weekend to try more!!!

The staff are amazingly attentive, without being in your face. The atmosphere has a family friendly feel, like being at a favorite Aunts for dinner. We were acknowledged immediately, brought to the bar for drinks, as our table wasn't quite ready yet. Our waiter was knowledgable and helpful which was important, as two of our part had gluten free requirements. The service was quick and efficient. The food was very tasty, we had Bologna, and the Carbonara, both A-1. A gluten free pasta was provided with a choice of penne or spaghetti.
