We went to Mi Piaci for a special occasion and were treated as if the restaurant had no time for us because it was trying to run a business. Unfortunately, restaurants are in business to serve their patrons, and if you dislike people, you shouldn't own a restaurant. The food is ok, but the dining room is right next to the bar, and there is still smoking in Addison, just something to keep in mind. The food is decent, though he spinach salad was terribly boring with no flavor. The wine list was quite good. We will never return, never recommend this place to anyone, and hope the owner realizes that sugar goes much further than nasty, nasty spice (for no good reason!).
My wife and I went out to Mi Piaci for a date night and have a really nice experience. As I was choosing a wine from the list, the waiter actually recommended a less expensive Pino Noir than what I was going to select because he felt it had better flavor for less price, and he didn't disappoint. The calamari was great, and the lobster bisque was the best I've had in quite some time. Our entrees, which the waiter helped us choose, were delicious, and we split the chocolate cake to finish things off. The ambiance of the restaurant was somewhat "Dallas" but still very comfy with a beautiful dining room, great lighting, and a pretty view of a pond with a fountain. Overall, a nice place for a mid to upscale dinner.

Mi Piaci is my favorite Italian resturant. The ambiance and food are absolutely wonderful!! The pastas are freshly made and the seafood is always done right! Love the torto fusio chocolate cake and is a must have! Everything is great on the menu and I have never had a problem! I would suggest reservations on the weekend.
They started doing a Power Lunch Buffet and I thought it was really good. The selection is great with lots of options (salads, appetizers, pastas). I would try it out since the selection changes daily.

Easter Brunch was a major disappointment. There was a minimal selection of some very bland dishes. Food was cold in most instances. Steamship round, Ceasar Salad and desert sampler were the high points. Very overpriced for what was offered. Dining area was crowded and very noisy creating a very poor atmosphere.

We went in anticipation of trying the seared ahi tuna over seafood risotto advertised on Mi Piaci's website. Instead we were given menus with hearty dishes featuring items such as ""fall vegetables"" and ""winter squash"", which seemed strange considering we visited in May. Regardless, the drunken pork chop in barolo sauce with winter squash actually was a pleasant surprise. The pasta handkerchief with seafood was kind of a letdown, though - the shrimp was gamey and there was no sea bass to be found underneath the pasta canopy. Still the experience was positive overall, thanks to hands-on service and a tasty reserve Chianti that they sell by the glass.

I have frequented your restaurant on numerous occasions without any disappointment. This changed suddenly last Friday evening. My wife and I ordered the Fonduta di Tortelloni con Granchio. The dish was sub-standard based on our previous times we have visited the restaurant. The pasta was still hard and my wife?s dish was rather salty. The portion was extremely small and the priced had been increased from $20-00 to $23-00. The dish was sent back. When it was returned the pasta was overcooked and my dish was salty and my wife?s wasn?t. The chef proceeded to our table and we told him what was wrong with the dishes, he actually agreed. He was rather rude (Gordon Ramsay). He eventually offered to prepare us something else> We decided against having anything else to eat. We also ordered the Calamari as an appetizer which was sub-standard. It was over-cooked and the portion was extremely small. It seems like the restaurant has increased their prices and downsized their portions as well as sacrificing their quality. The price of the Calamari was also increased from $8-00 to $9.50. If I am not mistaken the wine we had was also more expensive. We paid $72-00 for a bottle of Sartori Amarone when we paid $52-00 in November 06. I just recently bought a case of Sartori Amarone from COSTCO for $24-00 a bottle. We proceeded to Arthur?s Steakhouse for dinner where we weren?t disappointed and their prices had remained the same as well as their quality wasn?t sacrificed. I will be informing my friends of my experience at Mi Piaci and recommend that they no longer dine at this establishment.
