Hey, guys!

Check this sentence:

To me, this guy isn't good enough.


Is "To me" a prepositional phrase, acting adverbialy with a semantic value of: Viewpoint?

Your opinion is what matters.

Personally, I appreciate that.

I would list 'personally', in my mind' and 'to me' as adverbs of evaluation/attitude.
