One of our favorite restaurants of the past - food was very good, but service was substandard- even after speaking with the waiter for waiting 15 mins to address our table, we waited more than 15 mins to order dessert - gave up and asked for a check.... sorry to see this at a place we have enjoyed many times in the past - hopefully not a trend, but we will likely go elsewhere when in Pasadena next time
Every year my family comes to celebrate Mother’s Day here. I was disappointed to learn that they no longer offer breakfast/brunch. Luckily they had a special Mother’s Day menu that included a few breakfast items so I was able to get my brunch after all!
Everything my family ordered was delicious! Service was good, ambiance was lovely. They did a nice job with building the outdoor patio in the street, but we chose to dine indoors since it was chilly outside.
Overall this is a wonderful restaurant to dine at for special occasions or just when you feel like having some good Italian fare.
Food was delicious and arrived at the table hot. Our server was wonderful, very attentive on a busy Saturday night. Overall it was a very pleasant dining experience and can’t wait to come back next time we are in Pasadena.
The grill was broken so we did miss out on the food we initially went there for but overall the food was good service was OK
First time eating here, the food was very good would recommend the restaurant.
The hostess that day was extremely rude! She wasn’t helpful and didn’t really communicate much to us about our wait and sat us at a table with only one chair when there was 2 of us and never acknowledging she would grab us another chair, we had to ask. Waiter was great and food was great. The hostess was the worst part and so rude.
Early Mother's Day. Mi Piace never dissapoints but was a little disappointed because the grill was down today so many items were not available. Food that we were able to order was delicious.
Overall experience was good. Had a late lunch for Mother’s Day. Although place was packed, service was good and food came on time considering the amount of people.
Very Busy. Parking is scarce.
waiter got my order long but service was taking long so i just ate it
Great food, great service
Overall our experience was disappointing. I ordered chicken piccata which was bland and lacked any hint of lemon flavor (it's listed as being in a white wine and lemon butter sauce). The dish also needed salt. My friend ordered the spaghetti fra diavolo; the sauce was flavorful (although also needing salt), but the calamari was overcooked and very rubbery. Service was slow, and at various times absent; we had to flag down a busboy for a refill of iced tea, and our server never came back to check on us until we were finished and asked for the check. All in all it was disappointing.
The food came out cold.
The owner stopped by (inside!) to see how we were doing. Very nice personal touch. Of course we ended with the chocolate soup. Food is as good as ever.
My 16 year old daughter had her birthday dinner with her best friend and she loved everything about the experience. Great food and great customer service. On behalf of my and myself THANK YOI!!
As always, Mi Piace came through for me! I took my 13-year-old granddaughter on a date and we just loved everything about it. Thanks Armen!
Mi Piace is reliably wonderful. I will be back. So will my best friend, with whom I had lunch there yesterday.
We like MiPiace because it stays open late and food is frequently good. Sometimes service is great, but this time our waitperson forgot about us part of the time. We didn’t get water until near the end of the meal. When pasta was served, Parmesan was badly delayed. Annoying.
My friend and I have our menu favorites by now, having been there at least a dozen times. There will be at least a dozen more. Reliably wonderful.
Weekly Date night with friends
Great as always!
Uninspired... long wait before initial service. Calamari Fritti was good, the jalapeno lime dipping sauce too astringent. Caesar salad, meh.. Papperdalle Bloognese was best of the night but the Ravioli della Casa was way pretty much all ricotta ... needed more herbs to have some flavor. It had been a long time since we've been there and will be a longer time before we return.
Best fries I have ever had in my life!! You can choose to get them with plain salt OR a spicy version that is coated in Cajun spice and more! Definitely recommend this place. Everything tasted incredible.
It was a great lunch experience at Mi Piace. I had a hard time finding reservation in Old Town Pasadena that day given that most of the restaurants are open for dinner only. Added patio in front of the building had a cozy ambiance with patio heater, chandeliers and music inside the tent. Socially distanced tables positioned in a very comfortable way. Food was delicious as usual. Will be coming back soon.
We sat outside and after several minutes of waiting for a waiter to come by I went inside to ask for someone to at least provide us water. After I said something then we were well attended. The service seem generally overwhelmed. But the food and drinks were on point. I would still go back and I would still recommend to anyone.
Brought our son and my mother to brunch for my sons 14th birthday. He loves this place, (or at least used to) But this is the second time the owner has come out and argued with us over the temperature of my sons steak. My son ordered a medium rare filet and got medium well. Sent it back. Got a rare steak in return. This is the second time this has happened. Also our server was totally overworked, forgot our bread service, and was basically MIA the whole time. We Won’t be back.
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.
Who every over sees the dishes coming out should be demoted i will never,,have a meal there during the day. Ive been a customer for 18yrs chef is much superior in the evening
For evening dining only day personal working for pay checks had to chase my waitress for service pasta dry had to ask to touch up
The food was amazing but the server was beyond horrible.
The service was friendly and professional. Food tasted great but a little pricy. Great overall experience.
Recommendations by server were wonderful. Will be back more often.
Food and waiter were great
It's been a while since we've visited but it was worth the wait
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.
