I saw a comment on this forum which states, that plaĉas is the most commonly used form in Esperanto to express that something is liked.

BTW, plaĉi is a literal translation of Russian нравиться:

кофе нравится мне = kafo plaĉas al me

Not only Italians. All Romance languages that I know other than Portuguese have a similar form. As someone else mentioned, Russian also forms the sentence this way. It seems that this is a pretty common sentence structure across languages.
