I think they need to change the hostess, Angela. She’s quite stressed out and extremely slow. We waited 15 min just to check in while she was trying to figure out how to seat a party of 6 without reservation. We have reservation but ended up losing our table uh that party because by the tine she got to us it was already 15 min past our reservation time.
Absolutely great service. Very attentive. Food is superb!
Highly recommended this restaurant, my salmon and baggie was delicious
Excellent service. Waiter was great!
We made reservations but arrived about 15 minutes early. They seated us right away, giving us a choice of indoor or outdoor seating. We chose indoor. This Italian restaurant serves both imported pasta or homemade pasta. I ordered the Minestrone, which my husband and I shared. Even though I was nursing a major tooth ache at the time, this was the very best Minestrone soup I have ever eaten; Made with all fresh vegetables. The bread was just ok, points of focaccia cheese bread. It could have been warmer, and wrapped to stay warm. They charge $1.50 for bread service, yet they just set it down with a small dish of olive oil. The homemade real “cheese” raviolis we’re wonderful. They came piping hot and were coated with a delicious homemade marinara sauce, the best I’ve ever had so far. I was in so much tooth pain, I could barely eat. In spite of a bad tooth, I still enjoyed my dinner! I would definitely recommend this restaurant to family and friends. We live in San Diego, so chances of getting to dine here again are slim. I do hope some day we can eat here again!
Good food, professional service. Great experience.
Our server was outstanding, attentive, great smile and very engaging.
Food was OK but somewhat disappointing and it did not warrant the price.
Decided to give this place a try as I dine in the area often.
Unfortunately I’ll not be returning as the area offers many choices for dining.
Always a fantastic experience.
Food was great, and our server was terrific! We had a great evening!
We waited 15+ minutes for coffee. Restaurant almost empty, several servers standing around. The servers were slow to offer refills of coffee and water. The restaurant’s idea of serving cold toast in french fry holders with no butter or jam on it is not a good one. Food was slow, not at proper temperature — it had obviously been sitting. We have eaten there before and we’re generally satisfied. Our most recent visit was not good. Won’t be returning.
My first visit and the food was outstanding and the drinks well crafted especially the apple smoked bourbon, but the delectable macaroons dipped in chocolate was a real treat for the palate. Our waiter was so helpful and got us out on time for a show we were seeing that night. Will be going back again with more friends to enjoy a great meal.
A wonderful dinner with family visiting from out of town. We enjoyed sitting out on the sidewalk. The service was excellent and the food was amazing. I really enjoyed my shrimp and everyone else had pasta.
Mi Piace is great for lunch. Spa specials are terrific deals and great food. Highly recommend.
Had a wonderful time celebrating our anniversary. Service was great. We even received a surprise dessert. Thank you!
We love Mi Piace...their vodka martini is spot on. I love their Shrimp Scampi but tonight's was a little dry and not as fabulous. But overall this place is great!
We've been to Mi Piace a couple times and it's hit or miss. The last time we went it was great, but this time (mid-week) it was less than stellar. Slow service, and burnt toast and pizza edges. I make much better bruschetta myself. When I spend $90 for a meal I expect more.
First, utensils were not clean, with remaining food.
Second, dishes were brought in with food debris.
I ordered vongole, which seemed to have less portion and less manila clams than usual.
Very poorly run! Food was very good but service and management not worth it!
Was a good experience except for the waiter who provided very poor.
Food was horrible...I ordered a lobster roll and it had more chopped vegetables than lobster. Ordered grilled veggies no seasoning. Server questioned me about how much I ordered when several ideas were requested.
Outstanding atmosphere service and food. I’ll be back
They accommodated our party of 10 seamlessly- service was very good and the food was great!
Must try the salmon
My husband and I decided to have our anniversary dinner here because we always have a good time and know that we’re going to get a lovely dinner and good service. We didn’t get a great table, but a two top at the window was just fine. We both tried dinner special entrees and they were both delicious. Server was attentive and runner quick. We’re happy that one old town restaurant is surviving all the changes in Pasadena.
Great food and service. Love it
Delicious food and excellent customer service
Great food. Great service. Great ambiance.
Celebrated a friends birthday in the lounge area and the bartender and the host and their servers were absolutely great they really made the evening fine.
Based on previous dining experiences, I would definitely recommend Mi Piace. However, during this particular dinner, I would not. Half of my party was seated after a few minutes of arriving but was not acknowledged by our server, until we asked someone else for him. The bus boy, Marlen (I believe that’s his name), brought us water and bread and said he’d let someone know we hadn’t had our server come by. We’d already been there for 30 minutes! We ordered soon after this and it was another 2 hours before we finished our meal...very difficult for my 3 year old. After ordering our food, it was at least another 30 minutes before our food was brought to our table. And not everything was even available. I hope this was an isolated incidence because we’ve been coming here for many many years and it has always been a great food and service. I will give Mi Piace another chance but if it doesn’t change, I’m afraid we won’t be able to come back.
We been going to this restaurant for years. A+ One of the best Italian Food around Pasadena.
Amazing delicious food. Service is beyond wonderful. Can't wait to come back.
Very slow service, incredibly greasy food. No utensils or plates.. basically us to serve ourselves with plates forks and the necessities to eat. Horrible Father’s Day experience
Fathers Day Brunch menu was uninspiring. Would prefer to eat at home than greasy potatoes and oil soaked veggies and burnt sausages. Stick to the Italian food that's what they best!
fathers day lunch! loved it! best thing here is their seafood pescatore.
The food was very good, however one of the servers spilled lemonade all over my fiancé’s dress. She had just bought that dress. It was nice of the server to be remorseful and I understand it happens. But afterwards our main server did nothing about it and really didn’t give us much service the rest of the night. Not even a refill. Considering how expensive the prices are I don’t think I want to take a chance of getting bad service again. So I probably will not be returning. Plus it’s too loud to even a decent conversation, especially if you’re celebrating a special occasion like we were.
Service was excellent and we really enjoyed the food!
calomari was soggy and not like i remember. pasta was great but my date didnt like her dish. just need to try something different next time. thanks!
