welcome to Rocket Italian Community!
The verb "piacere" can be a little bit tricky.
We have two ways to express it :
-with "piace", when we use singular words. Example: "Mi piace la torta " (I like the cake)
-with "piacciono" when we use plural words. Example : "Mi piacciono le torte" (I like the cakes)
Basically in Italian to say "I like something" we say "Something is pleasing to me".
Mi piace la cucina italiana (I like Italian cooking) will be literally translated as "Italian cooking is pleasing to me".
As you can see the little words that change are the ones in front of the verb.
Please remember that "mi" which is not the subject of the phrase but the indirect pronoun.
Therefore you will have:
I like - Mi piace/piacciono
You like - Ti piace/piacciono
He/She likes - Gli/Le piace/piacciono
We like - Ci piace/piacciono
You like (addressed to a group of people) - Vi piace/piacciono
They like - A loro piace/piacciono
I hope this help!
Mi piace, Ti piace, Ci piace, etc.
