Restaurant Description
Cara Mia is Millburn’s newest addition to the restaurant community. From the moment you step inside this family owned establishment, you will experience the warmth and hospitality that is their signature. The inviting atmosphere includes exposed brick walls, tastefully chosen artwork and exceptional attention to detail. You will notice that the front of the restaurant is lined with paneled French doors, which open up to offer guests a true al fresco dining experience.

Cara Mia uses only the freshest and finest ingredients to prepare their dishes. Their chef takes great pride in his culinary creations and can accommodate any special requests that guests may have. Cara Mia offers an extensive a la carte menu for both lunch and dinner. For a light afternoon lunch, guests can choose from a selection of Grilled Panini and fresh salads or if you are looking for a heavier fare, Cara Mia offers a large selection of pastas including a lovely Ravioli Porcini with truffle cream sauce as well as a fresh Herb Crusted Salmon or delicious Grilled Hangar Steak.
The Dinner Menu offers tantalizing appetizers including Cara Mia’s signature Eggplant Rollatini as well as Shrimp Gorgonzola, a Hot Antipasti for two and Warm Portobello topped with Goat Cheese. As an entree, guests may choose from a selection of well prepared dishes such as the Chilean Sea Bass with an Herb Nut Crust and White Wine Sauce, Tenderloin of Pork with Cranberry Butternut Squash Risotto and a Port Wine Reduction or Shrimp Della Casa with Baked Polenta, Asparagus and Roasted Tomatoes, topped with a Pesto Parmesan Crust. The delectable dessert menu includes several homemade sweets such as Ricotta Cheesecake and Almond Biscotti as well as a rich Chocolate Sampler with Triple Chocolate Mousse, Chocolate Biscotti and a scoop of Chocolate Gelato. In addition to the a la carte menu, Cara Mia also offers several Prix Fixe Private Party Menus, which can be customized for special events.

Cara Mia is located directly across from the Millburn Train Station, which offers parking for guests, and is within walking distance of the Paper Mill Playhouse. When dining at Cara Mia, you are encouraged to bring along your favorite wine but if you forget they are located directly next door to Dave’s Liquors. Gift Certificates are available and reservations are accepted.
