Every dish was fresh and delicious, from calamari to fish in butter sauce to different pastas in different sauces to creamy panna cotta. Wines were delicious and reasonably priced. Service was attentive and personal. It’s a small and cozy place, reservations definitely advised.

Excellent Italian food. Our group enjoyed a special appetizer of artichokes, ravioli stuffed with eggplant, ravioli stuffed with salmon and shrimp, orecchiette (little ear shaped pasta), and the fish special of halibut. All dishes were fresh, tasty and nicely spiced. Desserts of cannoli, crème brulé...and gelato completed a fine meal. Staff were friendly and attentive.More

I’m so very proud of Marco & Stefano . They opened this business around 2012, and it grew from a coffee & gelato business to a full restaurant. And not just 1 restaurant, but 4 restaurants in San Diego. The food is amazing. I had...one of 4 dishes that have eggplant as an ingredient. I had the appetizer eggplant rolled around mozzarella and ricotta cheese with a fresh tomato sauce. I had this with a salad and it was more than I could eat for lunch. My daughter had the beef ravioli with mushroom sauce. She absolutely loved it! I’m pretty sure this pasta is made in-house. And the bread is also very fresh. Cute interior with exposed brick wall, interesting globe light fixtures, wood tables and wood chairs. The kitchen is semi open, and you can see the cooks in the kitchen. Additional seating outside along the sidewalk, bistro-style. Highly recommend!More

The staff at this South Park neighborhood place was beyond friendly, and as first time patrons we were treated as honored guests. Both of our pasta dishes were excellent, with plenty left over for the next day. They perfectly cooked the gluten free pasta to...al dente, which few restaurants do. Highly recommended!More

Had the pasta and ravioli and they were all great dishes. Nice staff and waiters and loved hearing them speak Italian. Loved being able to watch them cook in the kitchen. Wood fire oven and nice patio

This restaurant is very popular and it’s not hard to see why! Wonderful selection of items to choose from on the menu. We chose to start with Caprese. Great plating. The squid ink taglierini was generous and shellfish abundant. The home made ravioli di magro...burro was oh so rich and delicious. Finally, the scalloppine Al Marsala was a generous portion. Lots of vegetables to accompany the pork smothered in a rich creamy mushroom sauce. Espresso and tiramisu concluded our dinner - whew! Super efficient service, with none of it intrusive! Highly recommended!More

First time here. The setting and neighborhood is quite nice. Food was very authentic middle to southern Italian. We shared the artichoke special and it was excellent. We also shared the octopus salad. The preparation was very authentic like I have had several times in...Italy. Simple with potatoes and octopus. They added some kalamata olives also. Needed a bit more lemon than they gave us and the octopus was a little chewy. I know this is a tricky dish. Only 3-4 stars for this. If they could nail the octopus prep it would be 5 stars. Eggplant dish and the Occhetti with sausage were both great. All portions were very generous. I would definitely come back.More

Great food, great service and wonderful vibe in this place. Clementino (sp?) was our server and he made great suggestions for us. If they have the artichoke appetizer as a special, get it! The hot bread and olive oil/vinegar is a wonderful starter as well....We had two of the salads before our pasta dishes. No room for dessert, but we were gifted a piece of dark chocolate cake to take home and enjoy later.More

Piacere Mia was phenomenal! The food was authentic Italian with homemade pasta, sauces and delicious calamari. It wasn’t the least bit greasy. The service was outstanding and everyone made us feel like we mattered. We will be back some day!

After all my years eating here, how have I not written about San Diego's best Italian restaurant? The pasta is made fresh. Most of the staff is Italian, and incredibly charming, and good looking! The interior can get crowded on a busy night, but adds...to the warm, lively ambiance as if you're in someone's home having a big dinner party. $15 Nuziale...did they make that word up? Half your pasta will be in the fresh and fragrant basil pesto, the other half in their signature secret tomato sauce. Sounds like a weird combo, but its actually really good! $16.50 Funghi...the best mushroom pasta sauce! Creamy, savory, and that lovely aroma of mushrooms. $19.50 Taglierini Neri Al Frutti Di Mare...the best seafood pasta dish in San Diego! On top of their house made squid ink pasta is a plethora of fresh clams, mussels, calamari, and shrimp, all simmering in a delightful white wine marinara sauce. $24 Osso Bucco...not always available, get it when you can! A huge, tasty and tender braised pork shank served with golden risotto and vegetables. My favorite!More

Not only is the food amazing, the staff is friendly. They make their own pasta...try any of the ravioli, or if they have the “wild boar” bolognese as a special. The best I’ve had outside of Italy. The calamari appetizer, or the stuffed eggplant...omg.
