Decent Fare, Good Price

I went here on a date. We didn't know it was byob, but luckily there was a liquor store right across the street and we grabbed a bottle of wine. The best the store had to offer was Barefoot, so make sure you bring your own if you want to drink. The waitress was very personable and nice, the bread... read more

Nadine was a good server who knew what she was doing. We were greeted with some fresh bread that was "out of this world". We ordered some marinara sauce to eat with the bread. I ordered the spaghetti and meatballs, my wife ordered the manicotti and my daughter ordered the ravioli. The spaghetti left something to be desired. Both the... More

Pretty standard Italian fare here. Large menu lots of choices. I had the diced clamp on linguini and a white sauce (butter n white wine) One big thing to note it's BYOB don't let all the beer ? Ad wine bottles on the wall fool you they won't serve you beer or wine. I'm pretty sure liquor of any kind... More

I have tried several items on the menu and ALL of them were delicious! The atmosphere is casual and comfortable. The staff are customer service oriented (hard to find these days). Their pizza is to die for!!

They have recently expanded their menu with new steak, seafood and chicken options that are creative and delicious. The Chicken Jerusalem with artichokes is a clear winner in the new additions. They take reservations most days by phone, so do yourself a favor and call ahead, as the secret is out, and Mi Piaci is crowded now.

This place has amazing food. The pasta is delicious! Way better than olive garden. Everything tastes so fresh. Gets really busy but worth the wait!

The food would be the reason to return, not so much the facility. I recommend the sampler plate if you like marinara. They serve copious amounts of bread as an appetizer. It is a byob (wine) establishment. Get a good bottle of merlot and let them yank the cork.

Ordered the Stromboli. Glad that's all I had or would have brought a wheelbarrow to carry me out. This Stromboli is very good. Great flavor and no cutting back on the filling. This baby is big! Also had pizza, pepperoni with extras. Great flavor and texture. Great service, good atmosphere, clean and comfortable. You owe to yourself to experience the... More

We lived close by this restaurant and it was always great authentic Italian food. The staff are pleasant which is not common for the area and you can call in pick-up orders. A regular meal usually runs around 13-20 dollars a plate, and you can bring your own alcohol. They offer great bread as an appetizer. The salads that come... More
