I made reservations for brunch with the intention of ordering breakfast as shown on the website, and as we are seated we were told that they no longer serve breakfast. we were very disappointed. I would recommend you update your website

I felt that service was unusually slow, especially when our reservation was right at opening. Also, was disappointed that the Brunch menu is STILL not available. We were mistakenly given the special menu by the hostess and wanted to order the Chilean sea bass but couldn’t order the dish until Noon. Overall, it was an okay experience this time. Thanks.

First visit since internal seating available. Very close to previous standards. Several menu adjustments, positive & neg.
Will definitely go back, drink prices are prohibitive, high even for Pasadena.....

Food is always great, but the service was extremely slow! After being seated we waited 35 min for water and they had our cocktail order for 25 min before being served. The waitress was a little cranky when someone asked about the Chardonnay and kept trying to walk away instead of answering the question. Whole thing would have been fine if the waitress had better service recovery training. Amazing how understanding people can be if you apologize and show a little empathy.

Lunch at Mi Piace is always a treat. The food is tasty, the service is friendly and attentive, and the casual ambiance is relaxing, even with Covid precautions in place. We were seated on time and our server remained accommodating even though one of our guests was quite a bit late due to very bad traffic. My daughter ordered a pepperoni pizza that was perfectly charred and, frankly, one of the better pizzas I've had in a while. My own salad was nicely dressed, and the blackened salmon I added was meaty and very nicely cooked. My wife was underwhelmed by the sesame chicken, but satisfied herself with some of the pizza. All in all, a very nice lunch.

I went here for my friends birthday and they forgot the birthday cake and candle. I like this place but the prices have gone up so high and the portions are way smaller. I don’t mind paying the amount for more quantity and quality. I don’t know if they’ve switched chefs but the food doesn’t taste the same.

We were sat down right away due to reservations. You can tell they we were busy that day. But some of the items did take time to arrive. I felt like every other table had been check in more often then my table. So we waited a good while.

Food was amazing and the drinks too.

The restaurant is on a busy street so we opted for inside. There’s moderate noise which is well covered up with music. My son had the short ribs which was the best of our entrees.

This is a go-to for my mom and sis when I am back in town for a visit. The aglio e olio with grilled salmon is my fav and we share a pizza with mimosas! But everything is good! Highly recommend!

We had an 8:30pm reservation and did not sit down until after 9pm. We were not provided an ETA for when we would be seated. What's the point of a reservation if we have to wait that long. Once we sat down the service and food was great.

Great restaurant, the owner came by and asked how is everything. Server was little slow and due to Covid-19 we were in tent outside. Over all very good restaurant and great food selection. The owner is super friendly. We will go again for sure.
