Fantastic experience top to bottom! My gf and I visited from out of town and saw this eatery on Yp and gave it a try. The Manhattan and the wine selection is impressive. The food is amazing, the service is excellent, and the creme brulle was probably the best we've had! Magnifico!



My wife and I and dined there many times. We are always pleased with the food, espicailly the Itialian seafood. The service and atomosphere are great too. Parking in Pepper Tree Square is never a problem.

Mi Piaci, has the best italian food in el paso. The chef is the owner his name is cosimo and he is from calabria italy. The seafood is flown in fresh and the steaks are cut off the loin to order. The service is fabulous and the food is always piping hot. They have an upstairs dining room for private dining and large parties or events. Cosimo's pastas are homemade and include gnocchi and lobster ravioli made from scratch. Fresh fish includes chilean seabass, halibut, dover sole, grouper, and red snapper. The meat is angus riserve that has been aged 21 days. Great food, great service, defintly an el paso hot spot. Located in West El Paso, Tx.


Food Expensive and Predictable

I was at this eatery last weekend. What a disapointment. The food was served cold and we had to remind our waiter for drinks and bread often. He acted like we were bothering him. By the way, all the items on menu are expensive and everything is sold seperately. You'd think for the prices, you'd get world-class food. It was mediocre. We travel all over the world and this eatery describes itself as "fine dining." I don't think so.


A Great Dinner you will not forget!

I had an out of town guest for dinner and hoped that I could find a meal that would make notable impression. Mi Piaci did that and more. A good selection of wines coupled with inventive dinner selections, made a hit with my guest from Dallas. She commented that the food was as good as 5 star selections in Dallas! My unending compliments to the chef at Mi Piaci, for this great dining experience. His move to Pepper Tree Square in April should only help his business. We will be back for my wife's birthday next week, for another memorable experience!
