    Another wonderful date night. La Viola is so consistently great. Ask for Klajdi as your waiter, he is attentive, friendly and adds so much more to the experience. Thank you!

    We had a very good meal at La Viola West before going to the theater. The food was as well-prepared as always and the service was very efficient.

    La Viola West is more spacious than it's sister restaurant (La Viola) on the other side of 16th Street. The location is convenient to the Kimmel Center and Academy of Music. Service is always excellent and attentive. On the most recent visit my friend had a trio of pastas and was very happy. I had the chicken voldastana, which was served with a very heavy and salty brown gravy, and seemed especially odd paired with pasta with marinara. Would not recommend that option, although the pasta was perfectly al dente.

    Service was rushed. Never was in and out of a restaurant so fast. Check arrived before we were finished with our coffee. Food was ok though. Not going back

    Lovely meal. Take care to make sure you don't confuse viola west with viola bistro, though apparently same ownership and equivalent menu. Bistro was cash only, which was not mentioned on the website, for either side.
