Great Italian food in San Miguel. Specials are fantastic. I had the pasta with Italian sausage with red pepper. No corkage fee on selected nights. Try the Lasagna for a special treat. Thin pasta with several layers. By far one of the better places to eat in the city

I had a great meal here - salmon pasta in a pink cream sauce and a glass of wine. The meal was delicious, and so was dessert (tiramisu and coffee). Excellent, friendly service, delicious food, and a comfortable, nice atmosphere. I recommend this restaurant if you're looking for a good Italian meal in town.

I love their food, and just got a hankerin' for the pork tenderloin with cranberry sauce. I called, and their answering machine that asked me to leave a message. That is why I didn't give them 5 circles. Get someone to answer the phone if you offer delivery!

This restaurant was on our list of places to try while in San Miguel de Allende. Because another of our favorite restaurants was closed, we hopped over to Vivoli Cafe and were thrilled we did. I had chicken marsala and it was so delicious I couldn't believe it. I hadn't really expected a great Italian meal in San Miguel de... More

There is nothing pretentious about this restaurant. It is simply pleasant, inviting and comfortable. There probably aren't many restaurants that know their clients as well as the staff at Vivoli's do. It is apparent that there is a loyal following. Staff know many clients by name. It is no wonder that people return. This is not fine dining per se....but... More

We enjoyed a lovely meal and wonderful dining experience tonight at Vivoli. After deciding to take a break from Mexican food, we selected Vivoli based on their online menu selections. We did not have a reservation and arrived around 8:15pm. We were greeted cheerfully and offered a choice of seating in two different "rooms" immediately. Our server(s) we very friendly... More

Based on the positive trip advisor reviews, we ate at Vivoli last night and could not have been more disappointed. Much better Italian food can be found not only throughout Italy but also in Seattle, Portland, Eugene, Yachats, and Florence, Oregon! My linguine with clams was a platter of soggy noodles--I wouldn't even call it pasta--in a WAY too salty... More

This is our second trip to SMA. We seem to come back to this restaurant over others. Excellent food, very friendly staff with an attentive service. The calamari is excellent and the chicken parmigiana you can cut with a fork. Love the tiramisu too! They have a special price menu that includes a glass of wine. Definitely recommend it!
