This place as well as its staff and owners were wonderful. Huge size portions! And it's a BYOB. They had a good selection of Italian and seafood.

My wife and I visited Mi Piaci last evening, I had the chicken and shrimp callebrese and found it quite tasty. My wife had the Chicken Mi Piaci, she was not as impressed but the service from Carla and the bread made up for it.

My business partner and I went to this restaurant after we worked all day. We were exhausted and the waitress could see we needed a little TLC. She started us off with a basket full of delicious garlic bread! My friend had lasagna and I had chicken Marsala. We were both very happy with our meals and the service. They... More

We always have to fast the day before we go, the food is simply amazing. It is always hot and fresh in very generous servings. The place is clean and quiet. We have had ok service and incredible service. Whatever you do, don't miss out on the fresh bread with hot oil!

Eaten here multiple times. This is my favorite Italian place in the Permian Basin. The food is tasty! The portions are quite large! Bring an appetite! If you order a Stromboli, prepare to be impressed on multiple levels! (I've climbed the actual volcano of Stromboli, so I present myself as an expert here :-) If you feel inspired to get... More

Owner is very rude and kitchen staff speaks strictly spanish. Servers are usually okay but I can't justify spending 10+ dollars on a plate of okay noodles. What is it with Italian restaurants asking steak prices for pasta dishes? I'd rather just have one great meal for that price than one okay dish in restaurant and 2 okay dishes for... More

This is a hidden gem. From the outside, you may be hesitant to try it but once you walk through the doors, you will be pleased you did. Great food, fair prices, smoke portions. What more could you ask for. Don't plan any strenuous activity afterwords, your full belly won't allow it! A huge slice of pizza or two is... More

It is very dark in this restaurant, but the food is good, large portions. Service can be hit or miss, but the place is worth a visit.

Had a taste for meatballs and spaghetti. Went to our favorite Italian place and surprise, our favorite breakfast server had relocated and moved up to lunch and dinner service, Friday through Sunday (ask for Katie). The tortellini soup was creamy, tomatoey and had a great mouth feel. The caprese was good based on the availability of tomatoes in late September.... More
