    We were sat outside right next to the road. Bikes were flying past us a foot away. Also next to no lights so very dark. Both of us god pasta. Both dishes were too salty and mine was overdone with garlic (hard to do since I love garlic). Pastas were nearly the same price as the steak? Overpriced for both the quality and quantity.

    The wait staff here is always so nice - friendly and accommodating. The food is really always amazing. Three of us had the seafood pasta dish and it is one of the best I’ve had and not an exorbitant price. Have been here multiple times over the last year and literally everything that I have tried from pizza to salads to mains is absolutely delicious. It is also wonderful to have such a range of dishes and prices, you don’t always want to spend a lot when going out to dinner in the neighborhood, and, on the other hand, sometimes you want to splurge. Wine selection is good and you can even get a bargain carafe. Love Viale!

    We have been going to Viale almost since thier inception. We have watched them grow and eaten everything on their menus, many times over! We love them as people, as restauranteurs. The family of workers they have hired are just that. many have been there for years. That tells you something. Always going back, even though we’ve moved a little further from Central❤️

    The music could have been a little less energetic. Long wait for entree; other wise very enjoyable.
