This will be an easy, short review since we just dealing with a micro series of 4 minute long videos. Piacevole (Alias: Piacevole! My Italian Cooking) is based on a manga series written and illustrated by Nab_At/Atsuko Watanabe. You can view the anime and manga for free on Crunchyroll. This review will only cover the anime.
Piacevole's story revolves around two characters, Maro Kitahara - the son of a chef who owns the diner called Trattoria Festa and a girl named Morina Nanase who decides to work at the diner for summer break out of curiosity.
There is no goal for this story. However, Morina does develop ambitions to learn and master cooking Italian food towards the end of series when she starts to love how her co-workers devote themselves to the job.
To list fan service because everyone has a different tolerance level, I find it helpful if I list them for my readers. Fan service is tame and doesn't show up often. Just once or twice. We get Gainax Bounce and Ecchi Visual Pun for Ruri Fujiki's endowed chest.
The series's visuals isn't bad. They put a lot time when they finished cooking and the food has some nice details
The anime is okay but not that memorable in comparison to food shows such as Food Wars and Gourmet Girls Graffiti. Then again, to make the anime memorable especially for a micro-series is a tough task. I recommend just binging in one go. They don't really focus too much on the supporting characters. For some reason, we get a backstory on Ei Oreki's tendonitis for the last episode. That was an odd way to end the series.
Taka: I see. A global release will benefit it. Gundam did pretty good. The only few franchises that are only popular in Japan but not popular in the west - Yokai Watch comes to mind.

Master Menos: F for Respects. DMX did all his work while suffering from a drug addiction, and I almost never knew until a point. I hope his next life treats him far better.
