The food and service at Mi Piaci is always very good. You can have a romantic meal or go eat with friends. It was my birthday and they sang to me in Italian. It's one of my favorite places to eat, especially when I want a romantic date to reconnect with my wife.

My boyfriend and I went to Mi Piaci from a recommendation from a friend of ours, and they did not disappoint. We walked into the restaurant and noticed all the pretty metal work done to the restaurant. We sat at a table in the center and Robert our waiter was very helpful in selecting our wine. We went with a... More

Not worthy to be called "italian restaurant", the food is disgusting and overpriced. I really don't recommend you this place, don't waste your money.

Mi Piaci is squandering its potential. We were looking forward to a good Italian restaurant and it started out so well. The menu was intriguing. The decor featured white tablecloths. The Caesar Salad was quite good and the olive oil dipping plate was not only creative but pleasing to the tongue. It went downhill from there. My guest ordered Gamberetti... More

Visiting El Paso for the first time and mostly "eating in" at our airbnb kitchen, we just wanted to go to ONE nice restaurant. Boy, we hit the right place! The minute we walked in, we thought "uh-oh, maybe it's too expensive". Great ambiance, white tablecloth, live red rose on every table... but, pleasantly surprised to see the prices on... More

This is a great restaurant. The food is wonderful and reasonably priced. I tried it once with a client and I really liked it. The next date night I took my wife. She loved it! I asked her where she wanted to dine for Valentines day and she wanted to go back to Mi Piaci. This is our new favorite... More

Absolutely loved my dining experience! The menu choices were impressive. I started out with Maryland blue crab cakes with two delightful sauces and a signature drink that was a cucumber martini with fresh cucumber. I chose a homemade pasta entree that featured tiger shrimp and smoked salmon in a tomato cream sauce. Finished the meal with a chocolate creme brûlee... More

I normally find Italian food to be very heavy. Mi Piaci's food was light and delicious. The atmosphere and wait staff were welcoming. Great night out with friends!

Went there for a luncheon during the week. Not crowded. In fact hardly anyone in the place except for the luncheon attendees. Great service. Very friendly and fast. The food was wonderful. Compliments to the chef and staff! Is easy to get to as it is on Mesa but not in the congested traffic detour area. The only draw back... More

Service was top notch, food was delicious. Highly recommend. We went to try the caprese and we're not disappointed. The veal was cooked perfectly and was a big portion; very filing. The scallops were amazing. Presentation on all dishes was excellent.
