Great food, cocktails, and ambience! Good for a night out with coworkers, friends, and family.
It was our annual Birthday celebration for a dear friend of over 30 years. We always go to Mi Piaci because we know we will have a fabulous experience. And we did once again!
The food here is consistently good. I like Mi Piace because I can just get one of their salads for a light meal - the baby kale and Mi Piace salads are my favorites, or I can have a more full meal with the excellent cuts of meat and fish - short rib and Chilean Sea Bass are my favorites. The chicken picatta is especially good as well.
Delicious food, very friendly service and warm ambiance. Definitely will be back.
Great service from Issac!
Service can be slow here but the staff work hard. Just a hard layout with indoor and outdoor dining. Food is great. Wine selection is too.
Excellent food and a wonderful waitress Sandra. Simply the best restaurant in Pasadena.
Great food, awesome service!
Mi Piaci NEVER disappoints...EVER
Overall everything was perfect. Loved your braised short ribs
It was nice to return to the familiarity of Mi Piace as the first restaurant we have attended in the last almost 2 years.
I had reservations for 3 at 7:45pm. I called the day before to request outdoor seating. A male representative stated it wasn’t guaranteed but he said he would add the note anyway. I showed up on time to my reservations and spoke to one of the two female host she said they had a table ready however it was for indoors. I kindly stated I had called in advanced with my request, the host were overwhelmed and mentioned there wasn’t any notes added. I told her I wouldn’t mind waiting for the next available table outdoors which there was a couple getting ready to leave. she said she was going to have someone clean it and would get me seated right away. I asked where I should wait and gave me two options. She said to either wait at the bar or stand outside. so I told her I’d wait outside. as I waited for someone to clean the table a group of 4 girls approached the host and were seated seconds after the table was cleaned by the other female host. I quickly approached her and once again this host was also overwhelmed and rudely brushed me away without letting me speak. the other host noticed the mistake that had happened however didn’t know what to do. I saw an empty table available for two outside and although my party was for 3 I asked if I can take that table. she quickly said yes and walked me over to the table. there was only one chair she told me she would be back with two more chairs however she never returned. After a few minutes of frustration my party started to arrive. My friend was standing next to the table. it was then that the owner approached us and asked what was wrong. We had decided to leave right before the owner approached us. We chose this restaurant for my birthday celebration and it was not what I had expected. It is very clear that the hosts are not in constant communication otherwise this wouldn’t have occurred. and their greeting/customer service needs improvement.
Great dinner! Great services. Owner give us free shots all around for girls. Happy. Thank you
Great outdoor set up. Friendly and attentive staff. Food was very good. Tuna appetizer, chicken lasagna, butternut ravioli and shrimp scampi were all wonderful. Dessert was excellent…apple pie, pumpkin cheesecake and regular cheesecake. Apple pie was one of the best we’ve had. Hint of rosemary in the crust made it exceptional.
Mi Piace was an excellent choice for our afternoon dining experience. The short rib ravioli was melt on n your moth delicious. So great was the Mi Piace salad with fennel. 🙌 Their bruschetta was way better then I’ve had from other Italia restaurants. Butternut ravioli awesome 👏 We had 4 different desserts, all were excellent, can’t pick one over another. And compliment s to our waitress Scarlet… outstanding, and helpful.
Food, service and general experience was great! We’ll be retuning soon!
This is my third time here in two years. It’s been 1.5 years since my last visit. Overall the flavor of the food was super bland. Not just for me but for everyone in the party. I could tell it was quality ingredients, just missing spices. By the way, I have not gotten COVID19 so my taste buds are as good as they were the last time I was there.
The owner and the staff friendly. The ambience is perfect. We all got new dishes so maybe it was the dishes we chose. But all together a good evening. Service is exceptional especially how busy they were. We were attended to the entire night. I will go back again. Overall great location and place for a friendly meal.
The ambience and the service were key to my visit. I love that they have fresh pasta. I great place to take that someone special. Lovely selection of desserts.
First vist was excellent - can highly recommend the Gnocci w/goat cheese.
Will definitely be coming. back to try more choices - many other items looked and smelled great!
We shared a variety of dishes and everything was delicious! Our server was wonderful, he really made us feel welcome. This was our first time there, but I see it becoming a regular spot for us.
Birthday for my son
Carlos was great. Kitchen was a little too fast as we received our salad actually after our entree.
Food always outstanding; service slow probably due to staff shortage; Decor needs improvement- new flooring and wall art.
Service rather slipshod. Didn’t give us plates to share an appetizer until we flagged someone down. We were ignored until we spoke up, and they didn’t look to be ultra busy. Our designated server disappeared after taking down our order and reappeared later.
Food, ok, not great but ok.
I love Chilean Sea Bass and I must say that yesterday it was the very best and the largest portion I have ever been served. The owner, Arman, is such a professional and knows how to treat his customers. The staff is also over the top amazing. I highly recommend this great restaurant and will be driving three hours round trip again to go back!
Our only issues was that we waited for 20 minutes before anyone waited on us. Once we pointed this out, they took care of us right away and apologized. The food was excellent. We sat outside and the warming lamp kept us warm enough. Very good experience after the initial few minutes
Amazing as always!
One of our favorite places for Sunday brunch. Will be back.
Have been eating here since college, still just as good!
I come here for the food, service is fine but a little slow, ambiance is hectic but that is what it is. Food was delicious.
Epic authentic Italian restaurant in the heart of old town Pasadena! I would go back in a heartbeat. Food is delicious and authentic and unique. Very tasty and unique flavor unlike what you get in most other restaurants. Even the weekend brunch menu rocks! I get the Route 66 omelette and a rigatoni with sausage dish for dinner.
Gracious service, wonderful food. I can't even count how many times I have dined there now. And I will be back.
We had an 8:15 and waited in the bar till finally asking if we could get dinner in the bar at our table. They said yes, so it worked out well. It was Halloween eve, and the restaurant was slammed. So we understood. The waiter was awesome.
Always enjoy this place! I’ve been going for 29 years. Consistent and delicious. Their Classic margarita pizza is thee best ever!!! Appreciate Arman, the Owner as he’s always welcoming; not to mention he’s been there since I began going 😝 I, also really enjoy the patio as it has a little bistro feel to it. Cheers 🍷
the ambience is kinda "messy", not as cozy and nice as before. Tables are not set up, so when I went in, it looks like they are already closing. But overall food is good, however the waiter seems very busy, he did not really pay attention to what we order. When we ask for recommendation, he keep recommending the same one to all of us.
Mi Piace is always a favorite. Menu and food is always fresh, consistent, and delicious!
The only downside to the outdoor dining experience is that you expose yourself to lewd behavior exhibited by the transient population. Sadly, on my most recent visit I witnessed a young family celebrating a birthday get harassed. The staff didn’t approach the table to ask if everyone was okay.
I know the business can’t control the behavior of others but a check-in with the party would’ve been a nice touch. Just some feedback.
It was closed.
The food and service were good but the decor could use a LOT of work
We went fairly early and it was getting very busy. Long wait for our food, but the waiter was very apologetic and made it tolerable. The food was excellent, we were very happy. It was our grandson's 14th birthday and he enjoyed the Tiramisu for his dessert, at it all!
Mi Piace is one of his favorite spots, so we will be returning.
