The first time I went to Cara Mia was because of their striking red door. The service was horrible and the food was amazing! I had to try it out again, thinking I may have misjudged the food because the wait staff and management were so apathetic. Knowing what I was getting into, the next time I brought 4 friends and told them to ignore the bad service and just enjoy the food. Again the service was lackluster, but knowing so allowed us to ignore it and enjoy the chef's creations for what they were. Not challenging to the palatte, the rustic dishes served up here are delicious and with a bit of complexity, just enough to make you feel like you couldn't have done this at home!
