I struggle to give this place 3 stars. When we arrived our table for 10 was not readyeven though a reservation was made. The manager was not apologetic. They finally squeezed us in the back where it was hit and crowded with 2 other large parties. Our waiter was sweet but made mistakes with our order. Our Parma pizza was... More

This was my first visit to this restaurant, and I wasn't disappointed. We sat inside because it was just a bit chilly. The service was very good, the food was better, and the desserts were the best! The spinach gnocchi was not my dinner but the portions were large and easy to share. I had the chicken lasagna, and the... More

So, 10:30 pm just arrived in LA. Starving, driving along Colorado Blvd I see this resturant. Stop stop stop. Check the kitchen is still open, yes! Sitting outside, mike rolls up. First words. "The usual two bottles of wine"? I'm sold. The home made pasta is the pick. I went back later in the week, did not have the home... More

I have been to this restaurant many times over the years. It serves great Italian food. One can eat both inside or outside the restaurant on Colorado Blvd, There is public parking around the corner. Love the lasagna. By the way, the deserts are out of sight.

We met family at this restaurant (their pick). I'm not sure what to say....the food was very good, but something about the dining "experience" was a little off. We sat in a booth, but the tables were set too close together and it was hard to weave your way out. It was somewhat expensive; $130 for two people. We were... More

Perfect pasta, especially when is served with seafood. Fresh and unique rustic bread, olive oil and vinegar. I love their originality in their pizza. Excellence in salads and fish. Great looking and delicious desserts. I like having a different dessert every time I'm there. Romantic at night and excellent for lunch and business. If you are lucky, you might see... More

Great CA and authentic Italian fare. There are a couple of giant pork/veal chop dishes that are pounded flat, juicy and are delicious- and I am not a chop guy. Excellent sauces dressings, service. Always crowded great weekend breakfast & brunch. Avoid the outside tables unless you have a dog with you- tends to get too loud with the traffic... More

Mi Piace has been a Pasadena staple for quite some time. Consistently good and always busy. Service is quick; food is very good, prices fair and definitely save room to enjoy the treats offered at their bakery.
