My Way

You may have noticed a little change in our name, so allow us to reintroduce ourselves. Ciao, we’re Mio Modo. “Mio Modo” means “my way.” Well, Scott’s way, to be specific.

When Chef Scott Harris opened the doors to Mia Francesca on North Clark Street in 1992, he unknowingly embarked on a journey that would bring delicious meals and an unbeatable atmosphere to many people, near and far. And when Chef Harris noticed the cuisine in Italy was changing for the better, he decided we must keep up.

So what can you expect? New, lighter Italian food, twists on classic dishes, all our favorite old-school recipes, plus a few contemporary additions. We aim to serve a new generation of diners by offering more veggies, protein, and gluten-free choices. We have been welcoming customers-turned-family with pride and joy for 30 years, and we couldn’t be more excited to usher in this new chapter with you all.

Here’s to the next 30 years!
