I treated myself to a solo meal outdoors on a balmy evening. Was greeted and seated at a table with a nice shaded view for people-watching. My roasted beet salad was so close to perfect - a tart and lively dressing, good quality greens, and tasty beets and tomatoes. I got a pizza margherita after consulting with the polite, friendly...

Can't resist to let the phone eat fast! While restaurant was packed, service is fast and friendly and best of all, excellent pasta!

Even at 8:00 on a Monday evening, this place was packed. Lots of groups and families. Some outdoor tables were available. Bar was hopping as well. Good diversity on the menu. Loved my pasta primavera. Super fresh. Not inexpensive, but totally delightful.

Great Italian food and menu large enough even picky eaters can find something. If I have a group of people, one can never get consensus. Therefore I take the group here and everyone is happy. Good value as there are more expensive Italian restaurants very close but don't feel the price is worth it.

Waited a bit to get served... but ooh it was worth it. Loved that the pancakes were fantastic, hot and warm maple syrup.

My favorite dishes are the Insalata Tricolore, ravioli al burro (Hand made butternut squash and ricotta filled ravioli with brown butter, sage and parmigiano) and for dessert, the Chocolate Soup (Bittersweet Belgian chcolate souffle served with a side of Chantilly cream). It can be really busy, so best to make a reservation.

I have lived in the San Gabriel Valley for almost 35 years. Over that time, Mi Piace has been around for many years, although I have not been there lately. I have taken friends and family there for dinner, dates, etc. The bread they give you at the beginning of your meal is delicious. The food is pretty good, although... More

The food is excellent ,the service is great. The location is perfect. It can become pricy if you are going to bring the family, but it is worth every dollar you spend. The cocktails are very good and is in the price range of most restaurants.

I love the atmosphere and the food is great. The parking is easy. The waiters are friendly. If it is warm outside I like to sit out front. It is just a great place to relax and enjoy yourself.

A wonderful experience. The service by Anna was great. The Linguine with white clam sauce was super and the Shrimp Diavolo was to die for. The drinks were perfect. For a Sunday night this was so unexpected that it made our entire Patriots won day. Don't miss it

Thank desertj1

Thank you for both your patronage and kind review-we think our shrimp diavolo and linguine are pretty amazing too. Hurry back and visit us again soon! More
