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

This is a lovely comfortable little restaurant close to the center of town. The food was very good and the portions were fair. The best deal is the prix fixe menu for 229 pesos that includes three course and wine, but from checking out what others were eating all the food looked good...if you are having dessert try the lemon...

Renee, Jaques, Helen and I reserved for the early sitting at 18.30. There was a long delay in getting patrons seated as a patron decided that he would not conform with the rules for the evening, i.e. have a reservation. The menu was a fixed menu and tables were all reserved and designated. Finally he insisted on calling the local... More
