Viale was very good. We went early to do their happy hour first and grabbed a couple drinks and the chicken parm sliders. The basil cocktail might genuinely be one of my favorite cocktails in Denver. We were sat very promptly at our reservation time and they were able to transfer our bill over which makes everything so much easier! Our server was incredibly kind and helpful with our questions on the menu and we even met the owner at the end of the meal. We will certainly be back!!

Four of us went to lunch on Friday noon. We had a nice high top by the window. They have a lunch special pizza(1 topping) and salad for $12. We basically order the same thing but they had some excellent sounding choices. We all thought the pizza was super good. Thin, crispy crust. We will go back!

Been coming here since they opened usually for lunch but for dinner at times too.
This meal tonight was the best ever.
I started with a cauliflower soup. Delicious.
Then a rigatoni with some type of mushroom sauce.
Omg. Excellent.
My family is crazy about the artichoke appetizer.
And we love the desserts too.
Key Lime pie is mmmmm good.

Outstanding new restaurant in the neighborhood. Not only is the food amazing, the owner and wait staff are wonderful. It seems it's becoming more popular every time we go. I hope as the "masses" are served, the quality will remain. Love this place!!

We were craving Italian and being an Italian I am very picky, but I had many clients recommend this place and wow! it was exactly what we were looking for! The Bolognese was absolutely delicious and one of the best in town and the pizza flavors were spot on. We will definitely be back!

First everyone enjoyed their meals. A few of the dishes needed more sauce and the calamari was overcooked, but other than that everything was very good. Of note the place was packed which is always another good sign.

The aroma when 1st stepped in is mouthwatering. Food lived up to aroma teaser. Beef carpaccio excellent though a very very small portion. Spaghetti Bolognese portion huge, with in-house made pasta. Bison stuffed ravioli very meaty and flavorful. Our party of 4 arrived 5:15 before going to a game. Small disappointment that advertised "Happy Hour" board announced outside only honored if sat at bar, did not apply to table. Have never encountered that before. Waitress very friendly and attentive despite business of restaurant.

Best Italian we’ve found. Funky location but the interior is great. Creative for a strip mall. Great choices and creative menu. Very good wine selection glasses. Very popular. Recommend reservations. Garlic knots are the best in town. It is now our go to Italian.

When we arrived the aroma coming from kitchen was amazing and the decor was warm and inviting. We really liked the large painting of two ladies smoking large cigars! We both ordered a “Build your own” 12” pizza. The crust was awesome and the pizza was very delicious! We also looked at other food as it was being delivered to the tables and of course they all looked delicious, too. If you haven’t tried this place, I would highly recommend it. The staff was very friendly and the service was excellent!

Viale's is a great neighborhood find. Great pastas and wonderful salads and though we haven't tried the pizza yet, it looks great too! Family owned, these people really care and do the utmost to make sure you are happy. Priced to keep you coming back, this is one we've already tried twice. Wanting Italian food? Check Viale's out!

Second visit -- they are having problems with service I would say....very slow AND the cooking smells were overwhelming. Had to wash every item of clothing to get rid of the oven/cooking smells. You will never get a buzz on here -- the wait for a glass of wine is long. The food is so good though -- I wish the restaurant luck in rounding up some good servers and working out their kinks.

We came here to celebrate my son starting at University of Denver. Food and service were excellent. Very nice and clean restaurant. Only thing we didn't care for was the TVs at one end, too distracting for dinner conversation, especially with teens. Would definitely recommend though. We had 3 different pizzas and one pasta dish. Word of warning, when they say the Denver pizza (I forget the specific name) is spicy, they're not kidding. But very tasty!

Read several good reviews; I can only say the reviews were correct -- this is an excellent place, casual but perfect for a dinner out with friends. We could hear each other, we enjoyed the pizza as a starter, and we had pasta dishes and salads that were delicious. I cannot wait to return. Nice space too. Convenient parking.

This was my second time and they delivered. From the service to the wine to the pizza with more toppings on it! YES! The food is good and satisfying. The wine list is a tad limited, but this is a good thing. Their offerings are of very good quality. Truly pleased.
