Great Food and FunThe service here was very good. Our server was attentive but gave us time to talk. The food was great and the place itself was full and full on a Tuesday night.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food, butThe portions are considerable smaller than in the past.
I have been going to this restaurant in the past 20 years.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellant BrunchFirst time here, came to celebrate Mothers Day and was very happy wuth service, food and ambiance.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMark D, the Bartender ROCKED!We're always satisfied with the delicious menu Mi Piace has to offer. We always start with the calamari, & always get 2 pasta dishes, & dessert; however, this review needs to be about Mark D, the incredible Bartender! He went above and beyond to take care of us. Despite how EXTREMELY busy he was he continued to be attentive and helpful in recommending dishes we haven't tried before & very plesant. I appreciate hardworking people, and hope the next time we visit he'll be on staff. Another mention to the hostess on staff that day, she was very sweet and tried her best to get us in earlier even though our reservations weren't for another hour. Keep it up!!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMCelebrationWe celebrated a Graduation with a party of 12 and the service and food was great. Everyone ordered something different and everyone remarked that their food was very good.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMOur Server has a delightfulOur Server has a delightful personality--very "New York". He knew the food and was able to help with the wine. He seemed to anticipate our table needs and show up at the right time. We were seated promptly even though there was a discrepancy with the time. The atmosphere was friendly and upbeat. The other diners were very pleasant--I'm convinced the kindest people eat there. The energy is high and he food is the best ever!!! The menu is awesome (so much from which to choose). We will go again and again.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMLate Saturday NightIf you are inside on a Saturday night, you would have to shout to talk. But we ate outside and it was perfect. They don't have heaters but it was a warm evening.
The food was fabulous and when the bill came we were surprised by how little we had spent - that's a nice change.
The service was very attentive.
We had gone to the Pasadena Playhouse and not many other places were open - this was a great find.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMA great place for the wholeA great place for the whole family.

Enjoyed Easter dinner!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMSmall tables, Good FoodArrived at 6pm on a Thursday.Seated immediately.We were looking for a quiet dinner before going to the Ice House. The window table for two was extremely small, and we were sandwiched between two loud talkers: On the left was a man on a cell phone giving investment advice while his date stared at the ceiling.On the right was a pregnant lady telling her friend all about her soon to be out of wedlock baby. We soon moved to another table, where we were not subjected to someone else's conversations. The waiter was quick to take our order (the salmon & the scampi),the food was very good, and we didn't have to talk over someone else's conversations.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMI heard some bad reviews fromI heard some bad reviews from my friends about Mi Piace. They said that Mi Piace would ruin my celebration of my boyfriend's birthday and my graduation. At first I was a little skeptical about going there. But it was not true at all. Service was great! I ordered cheese ravioli and asked my waiter to change the sauce to Alfredo sauce (I don't like marinara sauce). It was great, but I think it would be more delicious with pesto sauce. It was a busy night for Mi Piace, but I also hope my waiter did not rush our table. I feel like it was a little rushed. I work at one of the hotels in Pasadena, and I would definitely recommend Mi Piace for my guests! :)3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Proposal!Had a great time and the staff was awesome. My girlfriend and I had gone on our first date to Mi Piace almost 6 years ago so I thought to myself that it would be a perfect place to propose to her. So I set the whole night up and reserved a table and coordinated with the staff to make it a memorable night and it went smoothly she said yes and she didn't even know it was coming. Thanks for such a perfect night.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThe server can make or breakThe server can make or break an evening out, whether the food is great or not. Fortunately Michael is an outstanding server (we will routinely request him) and went out of his way to make our evening at Mi Piace very special. This was only our second time visiting Mi Piace and will definitely not be our last.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother Terrific LuncheonThe half roast chicken lunch with the roasted garlic and vegetables was outstanding! Highly recommend coming here for a business lunch.2/13/2013 12:00:00 AMLove your placeExcellent food and service. Whenever I'm in Pasadena, I make an effort to come here.1/23/2013 12:00:00 AMOverall it was a very pleasantOverall it was a very pleasant experience and Mi Place. We had a party of 5 and I can say that the food was very good and our waiter was equally as good with there being such a crowd. I would have rated this a 5 star but some of the bread and water attendants need a refresher course on how to act around patrons and not have such an attitude. But I do think management needs to identify the culprits and get rid of them and the only way to do that is to mention here in review process.1/5/2013 12:00:00 AMI hadn't been to Mi PiaceI hadn't been to Mi Piace in years and decided to meet my brother & his wife there for dinner. The place is still as popular as ever; VERY busy. Thankfully, I had made a reservation through Open Table and even though we were about 10 minutes early, they went ahead and seated us. The food and drinks were great. Our server was very friendly, and whereas it was obvious that she was attempting to give us good service, the busyness of the restaurant made it a challenge for her to be very attentive to us. That said, it was a pleasant evening and I would not hesitate to return.1/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
