The BEST Italian in town: This is my pick when I'm craving Italian. The food is wonderful, from the HUGE pizzas, to the luscious Chicken Rollatini. The garlic bread they bring out is hot, moist, and baked to perfection. The servings are VERY generous, and the taste is exquisite. The only downside is at times young children can get a little loud, but that can be an issue at any place in town. The atmosphere is quiet, with soft, soothing music in the background. Not so loud that you have to talk over it, but just enough to notice in the quiet interludes, helping to smooth over those awkward lulls in your conversation. The service is competent and timely, but not rushed or pushy. If you prefer spirits over tea or soft drinks, they welcome a selection from your private stock. If you have a really interesting vintage, they may just display the empty bottle somewhere in the restaurant. They also have a small private room, perfect for those cozy get togethers with a few of your closest friends when you want to shut the rest of the world away. All in all, a very relaxing and enjoyable dining experience. An even more interesting evening may be enjoyed when they host a fundraiser concert for the Satin Strings ensemble of Permian High School. Mi Piaci really lends a fine touch of class to the other wise "roughneck and roustabout" town of Odessa.
This place has wonderful food. No one in our family ever orders the soup at other places. Here we all get the soup. It is the greatest!! The bread you get is also very tasty. My favorite dish is the manicotti. My family loves it too, along with the spagetti w/meatsauce, lasagna, chicken fettuccini, and of course the huge delicious pizza. The location is plain but that does not bother me because I come for the food. The service has always been good to me. Bring your own bottle of wine as they do not sell alcohol. They will open the bottle for you and provide you with a wine glass. I have never been here on valentines or mothers day so i can not comment on some of the reviews left on other webpages. I love this place and visit it atleast 1 time a week. The only bad thing is that I always compare other places to Mi Piaci and they never compare.
The place is nice a little small. The food is ok but not really worth the price they are charging service is little slow but that mite get better with time
