It is thee best.......
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.
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 :)
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!
This is our favorite Italian Restaurant. We've been customers for over 20 years. Our favorites are the tuna tartare, calamari, osso bucco & the veal milanese. The martinis are great also!
the food was amazing... hands down the best spaghetti i've ever had. I will for sure be back soon!!!!
Italian Cuisine, Service and Atmosphere all excellent! Had a little Dean Martin crooning in the background. In all the years dining here, never once have been disappointed. Highly recommend!
This pasta is beyond amazing!! I literally could eat this everyday!! So glad that I can have such a delicious option if I'm not cooking.
Love this place. The homemade ravioli is my favorite. Over 30 years ago my now husband took me here for our first date. Tonight we celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary at Mi Piace. Same great food...same great service. I've introduced so many friends and family to Mi Piace as my favorite Pasadena restaurant. Thank you waiter Sam for being the perfect host tonight.
Mi Piace is my favorite restaurant in old town Pasadena, from the outside seating to the bakery section I have never had a mediocre food experience from this place. Now my favorite dish is the Lasagna along with starting off with a carpaccio and a nice glass of chardonnay. I take anyone I can here and will continue to be a happy customer.
The perfect taste! I ordered red wine to compliment the dinner! Amazing!
My favorite restaurant. I've been coming here since 1992 when Pasade na was mellow and it wasn't as grand as it is now. My family and I come here every year for my birthday, for special occasions and every chance my husband and can. I remember when they remodeled. Their menu is the same and so is their yummy desserts. So if it's not broken why did fix it. My all time favorite dish...the Penne Arriabbatta and the calamari with the lemon jalapeno dipping sauce. Funny thing...these were the dishes I ate when I was pregnant and these are now his favorite dishes. The best thing about Mi Piace? It's consistent, it's not commerical and not fancy, just great food with good service and sometimes the owner might even come to your table and say hello and thank you for choosing Mi Piace. Who does that? A man that cares about diners!
Delicious! We were in the area shopping for a wedding dress and found this from Yelp and other restaurant reviews. We were especially drawn to their fresh, homemade pastas and gluten free options. We started with three Primis-salad, Caprese e Burata, Insalata di Rucola and the world's most delicious Brussel Sprouts. Gnocchi di Spinachi e Ricotta, gluten free Bolognese and gluten free Salsiccia. We found each and every selection to be of the highest quality and amazing flavors. The service was great, too, and we will definitely be back if in the area again. Next time I'm dying to try some of their tantalizing bakery selections. Highly recommend.
Mi Piace is one of my all time favorite restaurants. Everything I have tasted I have loved! The Stockholm 62 is my favorite ~ you must try it! I usually share apps- I love the bruschetta, the Brussels sprouts and pizzas. Everything is so yummy!
Salmone alla Mi Piace
The dish I had for dinner was excellent. The flavors blended well together. I had to eat all and couldn't take it home.
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 ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
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!
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.💖🇺🇸💖🇮🇹💖
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!
So Good! Get it with Chicken & Shrimp!
Delicious!! All around great food and vibes amazing house bread and great desserts!!
CALAMARI E GAMBERI FRA' DIAVOLO
Excellent, the best
Best Ribs in town!!! Love Mi Piace Best restaurant in town
Bread is to die for! Has the right amount of crumble and crisp filled with soft succulent dough, topped with herbs and Parmesan. The oil and vinegar is the perfect authentic vinaigrette to combat the savoriness of the bread.
Oh my goodness, this dish exceeded my expectations, it was delicious! I have been here few times for dinner, but never for their brunch, and I will be returning for sure, they have the yummiest food and the ambiance is great! It's a must try if you are in the area!
THE BEST VODKA PASTA EVER! I even add mushrooms since I love mushrooms and it's even better! The sauce is exquisite and the pasta is cooked just right.
This is one of my all time favorite dishes and I have had it at so many places but it was on a whole other level at Mi Piace. Absolutely delicious! The quality is top notch. I have never had pasta quite like it anywhere else. Highly recommend!
Simply the best I have ever had, very well done and flavorful! Hope to come back soon to try another dish!
There are few dishes in this world better than Mi Piace's Osso Bucco di Vitello! The osso bucco is mouth-watering delicious, and the mushroom risotto is creamy on the level of being heavenly,
As a longtime customer, I've enjoyed the calamari and gnocci many times. The pizzas are crisp and flavorful. My husband enjoys the steaks and rigatoni bolognese and lasane di carne- A typical man who enjoys his meat and potatoes. The scalloped potatoes and brussel sprouts are great! They have the best tiramisu- a large one to share. The Bulgarini sorbets are fabulous. We enjoy the patio , the Sangria, and a nice sunset.
The Pork Ragu Pappardelle was an excellent entree, the Pork was tender and perfectly seasoned, and served on top of hand made Pappardelle pasta. The pasta was just the right texture with the Pork Ragu. I would highly recommend it. I also felt that the "Best Ever Gin & Tonic" lived up to its name! With the juniper berries and Fever Tree Tonic.
