Mi Piace is still serving good food....service was great...a little pricey...
Delicious food and great service!
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our meals. While the bread was a little slow in coming out, the rest of the food arrived on time, well prepared and delicious. Also, our server Isaac was great. A very enjoyable evening.
The table next to us was quite loud and rowdy. The servers were changing shifts so it took a while to take our drink order. When the second server started her shift, things went smoothly from there. Food and wine was good.
Overrated. Our server was clearly disconnected with bar and kitchen for our order. When the food came it was just ok. Not worth their Beverly Hills pricing in my opinion. Oh well.
Food prices and selections have definitely increased. The lamb chops were divine. Everyone loved their food choices. The raspberry dessert was to die for. Service could be more detailed and prompt but over all a wonderful experience.
It was my daughter’s birthday. We were seated promptly. The waiter was extremely busy. Lots of birthdays. I’ve eaten here since they opened. The owner came to the table and welcomed us with out a mask. All the waiters were wearing masks.
We ordered drinks, two of them were their specialties. One martini with gold flakes, and the other was a special martini with blue cheese olives, I dont think they were worth the price and I didn’t care for the flavor of the olives.
We ordered Brussel sprouts, two salads, the burrata dish and the bread service. Focaccia was amazing, presentation paled to other dishes. Salads were very good. The burrata was very light on the burrata.
For dinner I think the biggest hits were the bone in rib-eye, spinach gnocchi, penne arrabbiata, and the butternut squash ravioli. My lobster pasta was a bit gooey, perhaps over cooked pasta.
The birthday desert presentation was festive.
We enjoy the food at Mi Piace so much that we drive across Los Angeles to dine there. The food ... amazing. Spaghetti with lobster in San Marzano Chipotle Cream was just one of the amazing dishes. Friendly. Excellent service. Style. Only one complaint on the last visit was the music was loud enough to make it challenging to hear. That won’t stop me from going back.
Had a great dinner. Food always done perfectly. The restaurant was extremely busy but we still got our food fairly quickly. The tables are set up like pre Covid, pretty tight but was not bothered. Love this place. The owner came out to greet us at the table which is so amazing for him to do. He even was taking orders and working the floor. Always a great experience and everyone is so nice!
I’m the linguini Al pesto lacked flavor. If it wasn’t green I wouldn’t have been able to tell it was pesto sauce. I couldn’t taste the Pine nuts, the Basel or the olive oil. Adding some additional Parmesan helped for the lack of salt. Other things we ordered like the gnocchi was better. Bottle of sparkling water was $10..
Great food and ambience
Pre Rose Bowl dinner
Our favorite restaurant in Pasadena! As always, we experienced excellent food, awesome service, personal touch from the owner, and the updated classic vibe that the interior and background music provide. When we visit Pasadena for the New Year, we always plan back-to-back days at Mi Piace because we just can't get enough! This is truly one of the experiences we look forward to every year and we envy those that live close enough to enjoy this delight on a regular basis.
All the starters are phenomenal, but they create an especially tasty and heart-and-tummy warming brussels sprouts bowl that literally made my husband switch from a sprouts-hater to a sprouts-addict. The Picatta di Pollo is not to be missed and is a destination dish, and the gnocchi literally melt in your mouth, but you cannot go wrong no matter what you choose to enjoy here! Buon Appetito!
We booked for outdoors as a precaution for Covid
Night started out great and they brought a heater to place near our table
Unfortunately the lamp ran out of propane, when we asked if it could switched out it turned out all of their lamps were out of propane.
We literally froze sitting outside, the red wine became chilled, our food cooled down way too quickly.
We understand things happen but unfortunately the staff did not seem to think 44 degrees outside with no heat required any modifications- it would have been nice if they had offered to move us inside or to bring some hot tea etc
Overall good food but not so great on the service end
A wonderful restaurant with great food at good prices. Great gnocchi and desserts. Half chicken was great. A bit noisy.
Outstanding food and service. We were served by Mikael (Michael?) and he was just a delight.
Great place, great experience, great food! Met the owner there and Frank our waiter was great! This place never disappoints! My wife and I go there once a week!

Favorite restaurant in Pasadena.
Service not good. Pizza was very hard
Disappointing experience. The pasta was clearly frozen (and had not been dethawed properly prior to serving). The calamari was rubbery and also clearly had been frozen. For a restaurant that claims to be serving fresh Italian food, I would avoid it.
Good vibes and fabulous food!
The food is good and I have been going to this restaurant since 1996. The service gets worse and worse. Yesterday we had a bad experience with the front hostess and also our server. I was very disappointed at the service.
Overall was a good experience. Our server wasn't that attentive.
My friends and I had an amazing dinner last night at Mi Piace. We had the caprese , oysters, and margherita pizza to start as well as enjoyed the Omaha Tomahawk and Penne for entrees. Everything we ordered including our old fashioneds were amazing and we will surely be back.
Waiter hardly ever showed up at our table. We were trying to flag him down all night.
It’s nice to sitting outside, avocado toast as great as usual!
This place has sadly gone way downhill. Food was ice cold, very blah flavored and looking. Espresso machine broken during prime brunch time. Service was practically non-existent. Probably won’t go back anymore.
After all these years… still terrific.
Tables are really close together. Service kind of slow but it is a very busy restaurant. Food good, good selection of wines and dishes.
Great food reasonable service and ambience, a little loud and not so stellar service- waiter seemed too busy and prices a little high for the food served.
Food was good, but not great. Service was slow but pleasant.
The Lobster Bisque taste like out of a Campbell Soup can.
The service was ok.
Great place to get together with friends for a lively evening.
Service took a while and one of my orders didn’t come out but otherwise great
Had an amazing time celebrating a birthday. The service was excellent, very friendly staff. The food was great. Will definitely be back.
Waiter and maitre d' was nice
Great to have outdoor dining
Excellent food and excellent service. Sandra is just great and it is such a pleasure going to this restaurant!
Our favorite in Pasadena
Good, it was okay, nothing special but probably more on the over priced side. Ordered a burger cooked medium and it was more on the well done side. I could taste too much char which I do not like. I also had the French toast which wasn’t great, the bread crumbles and just wasn’t your normal tasty French toast you’d expect from a place like this. Overall it was a good one time experience, would I return? Nope.
I have been going to this place for over 20 years. It was so disappointing. The food was awful. The bar manager was so rude. The place is dirty and run down. I will definitely not be going back! There are way too many other good places to eat at. I will say Henry the bartender was great!
