We spend our winters in San Miguel and always visit Vivoli several times during our stay there. It is located near the center of the city and is easy to find. The food and service are always excellent and friendly. Visitors have the choice of the patio or the indoor dining area, both of which are great. On our last... More

We used to come here every time we visit San Miguel. Before we went vegan, we always had the fungi risotto, perfectly prepared and possibly the best in town. Now, we ask for some pasta dishes. The home-made foccacia and the tapenade are so delicious. The place is nice, and the staff is outstanding, specially Cristina. We loved the place,... More

I stopped into Vivoli by chance - having not read reviews of the place on Trip Advisor. And, I'm glad I took a chance. The beautiful patio was full of diners, so I opted for the quiet front dining area which was fine. The restaurant offered a lunch combo which I took advantage of for 119 pesos.(Mind you, we are...

We enjoyed another wonderful meal and outstanding service at Vivoli. The pasta dishes are perfectly prepared, ample enough to split along with excellent salads and appetizers. I love the Calamari appetizer and the assortment of fresh salads. On Wednesday nights Vivoli offers free corkage on bottles of wine brought to the restaurant which is always a nice welcoming touch.

I wrote a review some years ago on this restaurant and it gets better and better. We live in San Miguel de Allende, the Heart of Mexico, full time and visit Vivoli often. Great menu, many selections. Best Italian food in San Miguel for sure. Pasta is real and tasty. I can't go there without having the pollo picatta, tender... More

I ordered the 3-course special (chicken/mushroom/sundries tomatoes and fettuccini in a white wine sauce , vegetable broth soup, ice cream & a glass of red wine) for 220 pesos (about $20 Cdn). My husband ordered the breaded chicken breast with a side of pasta with marinara sauce. The portions were generous (we shared the soup and dessert) and we left... More
