Food was amazing!! Had the Greek Salad and Filet Mignon!!! Seasoning was perfect, cooked perfect to my preference, medium rare, salad was extremely fresh and full of flavor!!!
We Stop in Pasadena twice a year on our way to spring Baseball in Scottsdale. We found Mi Piace and now 0nly go there. The bread alone is worth the stop. Their pasta and service is first cabin!
Food is consistently high quality
Food: I had butternut squash ravioli with a burnt butter sage sauce. It was good but could have used a bit more salt. My friend had the fish special; said it was very good. Bread was very good along with the olive oil. We both had a glass of Malbec which was also good.
Service: wonderful - couldn't ask for anything better.
Parking: we parked in the lot behind the restaurant. When asked if they validated we were told no which was fine (parking is $8). We spoke with the waitress a bit about parking in the area. She mentioned the staff parks in the same lot and has to pay full price ($8) when they leave. We asked if the restaurant compensated them for parking. She said no. I was disappointed the restaurant doesn't pickup this cost for their employees. Her option, if she didn't park in the pay lot was to park a block and a half away. Well, who wants to walk a block and a half at night at the end of their shift? In addition to the regular 20% tip we added $8 additional to cover that nights parking.
Food was delicious, portions appropriate. Restaurant was busy for an early Sunday evening, so it was somewhat loud. Service was ok. Could have been a little more attentive.
I would definitely return.
This is the second time I come to Mi Piace. The first time, the serving staff were incredibly accommodating. My mom had surgery just a few weeks before and her diet was restricted, they were able to recommend something she could have in comfort. My mom LOVED it and was so happy to have good food, and not mush. We had a late comer to the table and they were able to move us quickly and with no trouble. Great first impression! I left good tips!
The second time was to take my mom and my sister for brunch. Food was OUTSTANDING. My sister had to leave, so they brought her stuff quickly. The drinks were great!. They have a very interesting take on the Gin & Tonic. Will definitely hit this place again.
More of a high end diner, but great if I'm putting it in that category! Wasn't the best for the occassion I went for, but food was good, service was excellent. It's a bit beat up, but I'd go back for the right occassion!
Food, service, ambiance, and music was all perfect! We really enjoyed a relaxing Friday night dinner.
We ordered a filet mignon and penne pasta which were both delicious and consistent with every visit. We enjoyed a chocolate soup after which is quite the unique dessert.
Our server was very friendly and attentive.
We were impressed with the great music selection that was playing.
Our Food was very good, but service was slower than it should’ve been. We split the arugula and date salad, it was enough for two with bread service. Pasta was done perfectly and sauce with short ribs was very tender and delicious.
Ordered a Mediterranean Pizza, was served a Mediterranean salad, with a hair on the plate. It was a business lunch. No, I don’t want the salad, even to go, cause, ya know, the hair on the plate. I got my pizza when my companions, who were trying to eat slowly, were basically done.
It was a simple order on a non crowded day. Better Italian restaurants all over Pasadena.
Great food and great service make Mi Piace a great place. I have held several business lunches here and the staff always takes great care of me and my guests. The menu variety allows everyone to find something they love.
Everything ordered was delicious. I would go just for the bread...lol. My granddaughter is an extremely picky eater and she inhaled the pizza. We meet our son and his small family every other week in pasadena so found a new go to restaurant.
Delicious food and excellent customer service
My wife and I had a great dinner. The food was delicious and the dessert finished off the dinner perfectly.
I love their Mi Piace salad . The food is good and reasonable. It’s a bit noisy and probably not a good choice for serious business meeting. But great for casual dining
We were travelling through Pasadena, came on recommendation from our B&B. We were hanging out for a good meal, we got it, we had the special of salmon. It was a memorable meal. Loved the ambience and decor, simple, modern, trendy, nice vibe, semi chic, not pretentious, felt comfortable. Friendly staff. I would recommend.
Always dependable for good food and good service. The desserts are very good. It's not outstanding in any category but above average in everything.
The food and service were excellent! The odd thing is that the restaurant was two doors down from an adult shop/theater in the middle of old Pasadena! The restaurant can’t help that, but I probably would not have reserved a table here had I known.
Walked in and announced our Open Table reservation. We were seated within 60 seconds. Our waiter Jose’ greeted us right away, and continued to provide exceptional service. Food was excellent, served in good size servings. All in all, a memorable meal.
There were 9 of us coming together to celebrate our friend’s quilt being accepted to Quilt Con at the Pasadena Convention Center this weekend. Mi Piace was an exceptional place to celebrate. Though we mixed up the timing on our reservation, staff kindly worked it out to seat all of us and treated us with utmost respect. We all loved our chosen entrees! Absolutely the best! Highly recommend it!
I had out of town friends and wanted to show them Pasadena. The service, dinner and ambience were perfect. I shall return.
Very good food
Very good wine list
Very good service
Consistent as always! Punctual service and the food was good.
Love this place and always sure to stop by on every visit to Pasadena.
nice atmoshere, good service ,good food.
this is the third time we come to the restaurant, we enjoy the food and wine
great spot .
Tables were not comfortable
Good food, small portions.
Our get-together with the folks who took care of our parents went very well.
All of the menu items were superb as to selection. The taste and quality of the entrees was nothing short of spectacular - Italian favorites cooked to perfection. The chef must also be a saucier, because his lemon/caper sauce for the Pollo Piccatto was amazing.
The wine list is impressive - you could take an hour just reading the choices available and another hour trying to choose (or getting really hammered trying out the available stock).
We're going back - soon. There is just too much good stuff here...
AND THE SERVERS AND COOKS ARE AWESOME.
Michael should receive an academy award for his skills as a waiter. He made up for a bit of a disappointing dinner and a pretty energetic crowd. Complements are in order for those who seated us. It was exactly what we requested..in the corner away from the crowd. So-If you don't mind a noisy environment and mediocre food, you should go but ask for Michael to be your waiter.
Typically my go to when taking friends from out of town. This visit was very disappointing.
Overrated restaurant! Poor service. This is Not a Romantic restaurant. The restaurant is loud and the food is below average.
Out with the girlfriend
Our waitress seemed to have an attitude once she knew we were not big spenders!! The grilled pork chops were delicious but the pasta meals others at the table ordered were so-so. Very nice they gave my son a delicious piece of birthday chocolate cake at the end of the meal with a candle. Nice touch and very thoughtful! Thank you!
Celebrated my daughters birthday and it was a pleasant experience. Food was great and service was amazing. Definitely coming back.
Great place. A little too crowded for a date.
My spaghetti was too spicy. Graciously, the waiter changed it in less than 5 ‘ for a mild one. Very nice and efficient from him!
Pleasant hostess who greeted us nicely. Our terrific waitress was solicitous, attentive and expressed very professional comportment!
I would enthusiastically recommend this restaurant to friends and suggest it for business-related dining.
Overall, I enjoy the hours that the restaurant is open and, that it does not close between meals!
Good food. Music is too loud.
The food was good and the desserts were even better.
I held my fiancé’s surprise dinner in the lounge area. Although they don’t allow reservations on that side I was able to get friends to show up early and find us some seats. The food was delicious and the service was 5/5 stars! We had an amazing time.
Delicious food and excellent customer service
