Mia’s Italian Kitchen located on Orlando’s International Drive is rooted in family farm-to-table home cooking.
The menu at Mia’s was created to capture the essence of Partner, Dave Nicholas’, great-grandmother’s rustic Italian cooking. Originally from Naples, Italy, she used easy, simple, raw ingredients – an approach that Mia’s embraces in their menu, which includes house-made (!!) pasta, Italian sandwiches, charcuterie, and square pizzas (also available by the slice).
The inspiration came from partner Dave Nicholas’s unique relationship with his great-grandmother – she didn’t speak a word of English, so they communicated through food.
Arriving in the U.S. via boat in 1904 at the age of 20, Filomena Galeazzo Masucci settled in Rochester with her husband and had 7 children.
