The place was lovely but the food and service were just okay. I had to send my sandwich back since it came with mayo and the menu did not indicate that it did. Food seemed overpriced for what we got. Dessert was the best part...More

I took my husband here for his birthday. He desired to come here and I surprised him. It was nice because we sat outside in old town Pasadena. The food though was not up to par with the cost. As far as Italian food goes,...More

I've been coming here for over 20 years and I think it's safe to say that Mi Piace is known for more of a place to be "seen" rather than for its cuisine. The quality of service and food has dropped for years. It's sad...More

Their margi's are great. Food, excellent. I always get the red sauce with seafood combo. It's amazing. Great atmosphere. Valet parking is the way to go. Thinking it was $8 and not hassle.
