I love when restaurants cook by the season. This morning at the organic market the mushroom farmers had beautiful morels. Tonight I enjoyed perfect homemade pasta of a thick noodle like pici from Tuscany. The tasty roasted tomatoes based sauce was filled with morels one of my favorites. My husband had the lasagne bolognese which had thin layers of lasagne... More

We came here with reservations for the fixed meal on Christmas Eve. The lovely background piano music, the dim lit atmosphere and the excellent service added to our experience. All together, the courses designed for the meal went together very well and the food was good. Minor improvement to an overly al dente risotto and a caramelized brulle that was... More

What a great restaurant. The owner is from Northern Italy and his chef was fantastic. I had a lamb fusilli dish that was fantastic and my friends meals were equally as delicious. Wonderful service. Worth the experience for "foodies".

We came to Mi Vida twice during our three day stay here. Great wine selection and we highly recommend the chocolate dessert as well as the burratta appetizer. Very friendly and attentive service, especially Oscar.

Our friends insisted that we go to Mivida. We were honestly a bit hesitant--Italian food in the middle of Mexico? We are so glad we went and on recommendation ordered the snapper baked in a salt crust. They let you know that this dish takes a bit more time to prepare but it is well worth it. And honestly the...

The modern upscale décor of this restaurant is lovely and the staff properly attentive. The food while good is nothing special. There are better, less expensive Italian restaurants in San Miguel.

I had been to this restaurant once before moving here two years ago, and forgot how much I liked it. Good menu, comfortable setting, good service, reasonable serving sizes, and absolutely delicious! Beware of the bread though. I was at risk of eating my weight in it. It is like the homemade bread my mother made! I could have made... More

We had a lovely dinner here - everyone loved the food. Nice atmosphere and great service. Nice wine list. We had Beef Carpacio, Octopus, stuffed calamari, and ceveche for appetizers. Followed by Mushroom risoto, pork cheeks, and two orders of Oso Busco. Nice bottle of Italian wine to wash it all down. Would definitely recommend.

Checked out MiVida walking by on two occasions and decided to try it. Some TA reviews were less than exciting but enough gave it good reviews. We will be one of those. Lovely interior, nice table layout, gracious host and waiters. Went on a Sunday which is pizza and live entertainment night. We opted to order off the menu. First... More

We are very sorry ur experience with us was not good. We always try to have our products fresh, and try to take good care of that, we have never served a yellow arugula. And yes in our publicity says SUNDAYS PIZZA,so they are only Sundays. We hope and give us another chance and try our pizzas on Sundays. More
