Conjugation question for 'Piace'

I am confused as to why 'Piacere' is conjugated as: Mi piace and Ti piace. Isn't piacere a regular verb that needs to be conjugated differently if it refers to me or you? Thanks.

Ciao Jonathan, the verb "piacere" is a bit tricky. In Italian you don't say "I like it" but " it pleased to me" as for example: - I like pasta = mi piace la pasta ( which it will be "pasta pleased to me) I hope this helps. Ciao
