the most incredible, godly, tasty, fabulous pasta everrrr!! highly recommend my guys!
so creamy and tasty! love it! one of my favorite dishes in Mi Piace.
This was a spur of the moment decision and I am glad we did it. Very tasty.
It should be one per person! So good!
Love this place! First time having scampi and i fell in love. Can't wait to eat there again soon!
always get this great salad, along with minestrone soup. Both great. But so is their Osso Bucco. Everything at Mi Piace is delicious. Can't wait to get back there in person.
The food here is so amazing I dream about it, so fresh and delicious! I've had many dished here and all put a smile on our faces. This is definitely the place to eat in Pasadena, we go every Friday and feel like family. Do yourself a favor and pick up some food you will be very happy you did.
Excellent meal! So great to have this quality of food available during this time. Thank you Mi Piace for being open for take out! We will be back for more!
Beautiful atmosphere with wonderful cuisine. The Mi Pisce Awesome.
This dish is nothing short of amazing! The flavors in each bite is like Christmas/ Thanksgiving in your mouth! I was blown away!
CAPESANTE CON GUANCIALE
This is a dish of amazing flavor and unctuousness! Such delicious pasta with the sauce made creamy by the guanciale. The scallops were perfectly tender and a great compliment to the richness of the dish. A great recommendation from Tina, whom one can trust for professional and very personable service.
CAPESANTE CON GUANCIALE
The scallops and pork was very tasty - well cooked. The pork had a bit of liquid fat that was delicious. However the pasta itself was oily without adding any great flavor or taste from the oil. The vegetables also were more raw with large strips of carrots. It feels like something could be improved with the vegetables as well as what was coating the pasta. Thank you for the meal.
Mi Piace: hands down my favorite place in this world to eat at! I've been dining here every single birthday (on January 11th) for years. Specifically, my choice of plate is the Lasagna di Carne. It's mouth watering, full of flavor and they're not stingy with their meat. It is a must try :)
I have had many menu items here over the years, but the one I always have is the Ravioli al burro(pumpkin ravioli with brown butter, Parmesan and fried sage.). It is truly exceptional. As my friend said — CO. When I asked her what that meant, she said — culinary orgasm. That about says it all.
My husband is Italian and grew up with his mother's handmade pasta. We are also originally from the east coast and when we moved out here, we tried all the pasta/italian restaurants and this is the only one we LOVE and keep coming back to. We always get the bread service, a glass of wine/beer and the Vongole Veraci. I've also gotten the lasagna and the Pescatore but am always jealous of my husband's Vongole Veraci. Now we order two plates of the Vongole Veraci and finish it in 15 minutes--that good. We started coming here on dates to now anniversaries and birthdays! Delicious EVERY time & great service!
The noodles were perfectly coated with the chipotle cream sauce. Not gonna lie, I thought for the price I'd only get a few bits of lobster. Pleasantly surprised! Looking forward to trying other dishes in the near future!
i loved it
My husband and I have been going to Mi Piace for over 20 years. It is our guaranteed delicious meal for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Although we have tried almost everything with complete satisfaction, our go to favorite has to be the seafood pescatore along with their focaccia to sop up the sauce. Mmmmm! Just thinking about it makes my mouth water. We go, not only for the delicious food but the great service and the semi-elegant atmosphere. This place is perfect for a special occasion dinner or a casual lunch. The food and the drinks have been consistently delicious for over 20 years. Thank you Mi Piace!!! Yummm!
I've been coming to Mi Place for a number of years. My favorite dish is the delicious spicy Penne Arrabbiata. It's perfectly made & I highly recommend adding sautéed chicken with it as well. All of their food is cooked perfectly. Great food, ambience, & open late. Definitely try this restaurant next time you're in Old Town Pasadena.
My favorite dish...unique from any other restaurant. Drive from 1hr away to eat this dish.
Excellent food. Excellent service.
Best truffle oil pasta I've heard had!! Always recommend it to my friends for Alfredo pasta!
Visited Mi Piace after a decade of being away. This dish was very good. I ordered the extra chicken and was surprised with the hearty portion. Will definitely get this again.
Love them. We order waffles bambino too. Delicious 😋
Calamari was delicious. Chef serves it with a vinaigrette that we didn't care for , so we asked for their marinara sauce that was served warm and was great!
I've been going to Mi Piace with family and friends for years - the arrabbiata is absolutely delicious and I'm so glad your wonderful restaurant survived this pandemic 🙏🏽💕🍝
It is thee best.......
THE BEST! I want this recipe because live in Texas and cannot visit again!
Our absolute favorite dish! We've been ordering this for over 20 years now and we savor and enjoy it every single time. It truly is one of a kind and love the fact that it is made with ground chicken. Absolutely delicious and a must try for all who visit Mi Piace!
Perfect for vegetarian like me. Healthy and tasty. Can not wait to celebrate my son's birthday here at Mi Place soon so my family and friends can enjoy too. I give them ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
One of the best carbonaras I have ever had! Perfectly cooked pasta and just enough cream. Delicious.
Pasta sauce ragu was excellent on the papperdalle. The tiramisu was delish and enough for two. Nice margherita pizza with our friends. Ice coffee glace was great. I enjoyeda Peroni beer here and discovered a new favorite. Always a good bet in Old Town!
This dish is hands down our families's favorite dish!! The cream sauce used on it is beyond amazing!! Each bite is to be enjoyed and savored as it is a treat not to be rushed!! Whenever we are in Pasadena we always stop at Mi Piace's and try new entries ..., never disappointed !!
What a great restaurant and the best place to eat in Pasadena. I have long loved this restaurant and it has forever been a favorite for me and my family. The ambience and location are amazing; you'll love it.
CALAMARI E GAMBERI FRA' DIAVOLO
The calamari here is delicious. The bread is amazing. Totally worth it. All the pasta dishes and pizzas are delicious too.
I am blessed to be able to spend my summers in Italy. When someone recommends a "real Italian restaurant" here, I usually roll my eyes (albeit in secret). Imagine my delight when I dined at Mi Piace. It is the "real deal"...piatti veri. I loved everything about my experience ...the server, the ambiance and most certainly the food. The wine recommendation was also so right. Thank you for bringing Italy to Pasadena. I cannot wait to return to Mi piace. It is now my "go to " restaurant when I go to LA. I wish your team all the best and continued success. Grazie di cuore.💖🇺🇸💖🇮🇹💖
Uova Benedettina (Eggs Benedict, Italian Style)*
This is the most amazing eggs benedict I have ever had! I crave it weekly. The polenta is soft, the hollandaise is perfectly creamy, the prosciutto and sun-dried tomatoes just really make this dish stand out. Once you try it, you will never look at eggs benedict the same again. Enjoy!
The Rigatoni with sausage and sundried tomatoes was really good! Anyone that gets this definitely has to put Parmesan cheese on it. It pairs well with some of that dinner bread!
