I think the one of the Best Italian food places in town.

Love their food. Have had found everything I have tried that was good. I think they have the best egg plant parmesan in town. Very good spaghetti. Made with Italian sausage. The only thing I find wrong with their restaurant the wait staff. They seem to be slow or distracted.

Recently had the pleasure to dine at Mi Piaci and so glad I did. From the fresh salad, bread, pizza (A large can be eaten by 4 people just saying) to the wonderful staff it's the place to dine. Also note if you want a Adult Beverage you have to bring it in. BYOB. Can't beat that. Can't wait to... More

Haven't visited this place on quiet a while. First I forgot they don't serve wine, I'll have to remember hat next time. The food was wonderful, the bread was out of his world. Our waitress was super friendly, I highly recommend you try this place if you haven't!!

Wow!! The Chicken Murphy was amazing. I have eaten here a few times in the past and everything has been good but I will never order anything but the Murphy again. Wait staff has always been good also.

Great bread in REAL Italian restaurant indicates the food is going to be very good as well, but NOT in the Albanian owned establishment(s) whose menus are almost identical for "SOME" reason!!! I ordered veal & shrimp marsala, but NO Marsala wine taste... instead I've got PINK sauce which is marinara with cream and VERY tough piece of veal or... More

Ordered the "Tour of Sicily" plate, which has Lasagna and Lenguine. The plate had a plain taste. Not like other Italian Ristorantes that have plates full of flavor. The plate was about $18, so to my point of view, this is overpriced. The place is clean and the service is good, but the food is not the best.

This is always a great place to eat. I've been there for lunch and dinner several times and it's always good. The house dressing is a surprisingly different dressing--a tomato based vinaigrette that is very tasty. My top 2 favorite dishes are the baked ziti and the cappelini primavera. And the garlic bread is the best!

The restaurant is decent but not great. I have tried several different dishes here but they were all just average to decent.

food was horrible, I complained to our server and he just shrugged his shoulders and walked off. I left a full plate of food and no one working there cared at all. The cashier asked about our meal and I again expressed my opinion. She went to the back and talked to someone and returned with a $3.99 discount. What... More

I always get their chicken Murphy It is amazing. Their rolls are Fabulous. You can bring your own bottle of wine, which helps to keep dining costs down. Their salad is not terribly impressive, but their house Italian dressing is very good. Service is pretty good, and atmosphere is a laid back, kitschy feeling. Prices have gone up a little... More
