About Mia Restaurant Morningside
Had a very fine lunch this week. Fish of the day was particularly good with generous portions.
Family-run Italian in Morningside
Mia Italian Kitchen on Morningside Road is the younger sister to the Mia restaurant on Dalry Road. A family-run restaurant, it attracts friends meeting for coffee, cake and a catch-up; resting lunchtime shoppers and couples out for dinner. It is especially welcoming to families and children are offered freshly cooked, smaller portions of adult dishes.
Great ingredients cooked simply
Like all the best Italian restaurants, Mia’s menus are all about top quality ingredients cooked simply and with care. The hot and cold starters at Mia include choices such as calamari, pork ribs cooked in garlic and wine and platters of fresh buffalo mozzarella and Italian cured meats. Among the main courses, the wide selection of pasta and pizza dishes is always popular.
Fish lovers will enjoy browsing the pesce selection. The zuppa di pesce, or seafood and shellfish broth, served with toasted bread comes highly recommended. Veal in a white wine, mushroom and cream sauce; the duck breast with apple and maple syrup plus the sirloin steak with rocket and shaved Parmesan all have their fans. Tiramisu, profiteroles and Italian cheeses will happily fill any space which diners may have left.
