My partner and I each had spinach pasta. Mine came with a meat sauce but because I'm a vegetarian, they were happy to change it to a tomato sauce. My partner had mussels with his. Both of our meals were delicious considering if spinach pasta isn't cooked correctly, the texture could be tough to chew. This was soft as can... More

The street side seating at Michele offers a great view of the Olas Altas area of PV. The service is low key, efficient, and helpful. The vegetarian options are limited. This time I had the eggplant parmigiano. It was decent, bit not amazing. We had the chocolate mousse for dessert, which was quite good. Along with the check, we received... More

We enjoyed our meal here. We sat on the patio although they also offer indoor seating with a/c. I had boeuf bougignon and it was excellent. Service was also good. A nice change while in PV if you've had enough Mexican food
