My co-workers and I visited this restaurant on Tuesday, 7/15/08 @ about 5:00 p.m. to celebrate a job promotion. Our reasoning behind this visit was based on excellent first-hand experience last year. Unfortunately, the staff on the bar section totally ruined our experience and our desire to ever go to this establishment again. From the moment we walked in through the doors, we were made to wait 10 minutes to order (it was not busy during this time); the food portions were tiny for the outrageous pricing; when the server was asked for water...it was never brought over; when we finally asked for our check, it took about 15-20 minutes to get our order paid because the staff could not find the credit card handed to them upon our arrival. The staff clearly saw we were not happy with the service, but never offered to lessen the amount of the check.\r
To validate our horrible experience, a couple who arrived the last torturous moments of our stay also left Mi Piace and followed us across the street to Neomeze (no complaints from this establishment!).\r
If you want horrible customer service, small portions, high prices, and have time to waste, go to Mi Piace. Otherwise, there are other restaurants in Pasadena to go to.
Cons: Service, portions, pricing
