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

Excellent food--- all dishes; Wood burning oven.Great atmosphere & music in background. Get the bread service for only 1.50---well worth it and the folks that go there regularly do get this wonderful Parmesan-Foccacia style bread--that is fresh and delicious! PS--if you really have to ask about free wi-fi, go to some other place; Here most folks look at one another... More

The ambience is great, the service good and mixed with the authentic Italian food...yum. And not too noisy that conversation at the table over business lunch makes it a perfect spot!
