It is a bit noisy when this restaurant is busy, but it all reminds me of a large Italian family sharing Sunday dinner. We had the carpaccio, which was excellent and a shrimp and pasta app. Then my husband had the special filet dinner and...More

We were a party of six. After seating us they supplied menus for the specials but said they would have to "find" the regular menu as other patrons were using them. Loud atmosphere, average salad, pasta entrees were small portions and very weak on ingredients....More

Hands down Mi Piace is the best in Pasadena. Chef Gil always has something special on the menu. It has a long time been one of the top restaurants on Colorado and keeps on pleasing.
