Fantastic Italian flavors, bread, fresh pasta and a rich tomato sauce on pasta. I had the chicken milanese with a lovely vegetable melody and asked for a side of pasta. The down side to the restaurant is the fact they do not offer wine by the glass. I had to order 250 ml which is about 1 and 1/4 cups... More

I went with 7 girlfriends here last weekend and it was the best meal we had all week... And we had many good meals. I ordered the seafood fetuccine and it was fabulous! We will go back to Michel's every time we are in vallarta.

We've walked by Trattoria Michel dozens of times but never tried it. After dining there a few nights ago, we'll most definitely be frequenting it more often. I can only recall our mains of Osso Bucco for me and Chicken Milanese for DH. Oh and a salad I had before the main which was wonderfully tasty and beautifully presented. Mains... More

We made a reservation at this restaurant on our first night in PV. They didn't even write our name down, so we were unsure if they would have our reservation when we arrived. They did- and they held the last seat outside for us. We have really amazing service. They had a nice wine list with man Mexican wines- we... More

We were blown away at the quality of the food -- everything was fresh, exquisitely prepared and beautifully presented. The service was top notch with a well-informed waiter. This restaurant compares favorably with any quality Italian restaurant in a major US city!

The osso bucco was delicious, but the risotto was sticky like cheese rice. Would keep looking for another italian place. The service was excellent.

Great service, very personable, and the food was pretty good too. We would probably go back again, as there are quite a few choices on the menu that I would like to try....

This restaurant is pretty pricey for sometimes mediocre food. My osso bucco and risotto was great, although the risotto was too salty. My friend's veal was way too salty. The waiter offered to give her something else (which was really nice), but the replacement pasta was also way too salty. My other friend liked his eggplant and my husband really... More
