I've eaten at Viale several times. The food is always delicious. The cocktails are tasty, too.
I haven’t been to Viale’s in way to long. The meal was wonderful. The menu has changed somewhat but the quality of the food and service is exceptional. Everyone enjoyed their meal and the service was spot on- neither too much or too little. The crude appetizer was outstanding.
The staff were welcoming and accommodating. Food was okay, and the setting was comfortable. Chose because location was close to office.
I was so glad to see Viale nearly filled! It does get very noisy, however. That is my only complaint.
It's a great place, wonderful food. Good service.
Not a great place for brunch. Portion sizes are small and menu lacks variety.
My sister and I took my mother here for a Sunday brunch and it was VERY TASTY. The space was fairly quiet, so the kind and friendly staff let us linger for a while over our midday cocktails. I highly recommend the duck confit hash (with sweet potatoes), which was boldly flavored and topped with two poached eggs.
This restaurant was a pleasant surprise. We were looking for a pasta restaurant last minute and were able to get in. The appetizer special was especially creative. It was scallops in a squash. The waitress gave a much better description but it was very nice! I had the boar gnocchi and my son had a NY steak that came with lovely greens and veggies. Ambiance and lighting was great.
Very good Italian, beyond the usual red sauce joint fare, but below the kind of highbrow food that feels self-aware, conspicuously artisanal, and overly fussed with. The specials really were special - cocktails and pasta - and our large group felt more like welcome guests than a numerical burden.
We sat by the windows and had wonderful service and food. The atmosphere was calm and quiet which is hard to find. We enjoyed ourselves very much!
Excellent food with a great atmosphere! Fun cocktail options! The $1 oysters were amazing!! The swordfish dinner was fresh and delicious. Looking forward to going back!
Dinner exceeded our expectations. Creative, very tasty main courses. Great to have $1 oysters. Attentive, professional service attitude.
Great restaurant, food, and ambiance, but I said I was celebrating a bday in the reservation and was sad that they didn't do anything special for my date.
Very good restaurant. If the noise level were lower, it would be a GREAT restaurant.
Great spot for italian seafood. Would highly recommend!
Excellent food and great service. Loved the shaved Brussel sprout salad!
This is the second time I've gone to Viale. The food was great both times. A mix of italian inspired dishes with what feels slightly more local flavors. Atmosphere is quite nice. There is a liveliness to the dining room that feels very congenial. Not quiet or somber or overly romantic, instead a bit noisy(in a pleasant, freeing way) and encouraging of staying for a while, arguing and chatting loudly and energetically over silly things and good food. When I went a couple years ago I believe we stayed for hours, drinking whisky after our meal. Anyways good food and a good time.
Great service, great food! Tables are packed closely together so other dinners are practically right on top of each other. Surprisingly noisy.
The chicken and duck selections were excellent. The beef was a bit tough. We would go there again. Liked the lighted trees on Central showing through the glass atrium. Servers were attentive.
I love Viale. Having only been here for dinner, I wanted to check out the brunch. Just as good, if not better! Service is always friendly and super quick. Great prices for what you get. Starting to become my favorite spot in Central sq...
food and service superb--very comfortable as well--parking can be a hassle
Delicious and creative dishes, wonderful staff and generous portions. Will be back!
The ambience was fine and the waiter was attentive although we had to ask for bread I ordered smoked duck had no flavor at all
We tried the new menu. I loved the lobster pasta. My husband didn’t enjoy his chicken. He said the smoke taste was an overpowering flavor. We missed the sea bass and duck pasta. We’ll be back.
Went for lunch during a weekday, so was relatively quiet and good for conversation. Service was good. Food was good, though slightly overpriced. I would love to make it one day to check out their oyster happy hour.
Tasty, fresh made food. With seasonal menus, there will always be something that's will tickle your pallate
Absolutely awesome... from the food to the service, everything was just ridiculously good!
Viale is a local gem, with wonderful service and consistent, terrific food. The oysters are a treat.
There was a little something for everyone here. Good, solid food experience. My colleague got pizza and I got a salad and split an app. More than enough food for lunch. Not a "wow" experience but a solid lunch option if you want to sit down to a simple, uncomplicated meal.
The food and service at Viale is always good. If I have a complaint is that the there is a limited range to the flavor profile of the dishes. The aromas in the restaurant ever change and all the dishes have a similar flavor.
Viale’s dishes are North End comparable!
Best of Boston indeed.
Amazing amazing service and super fast! Food was wonderful too!
5-7 pm $1 oysters at the bar were fantastic - together with cocktails and very pleasant service
Damn fine dinner! Excellent oysters. The duck was even better!
A 20% gratuity was added to the bill. I think that was a bit pushy and would have gladly paid the usual 15% tip.
This is my go to spot in Central Square! Reliably GREAT food - have never had a bad meal there. Excellent pairings with wine and beer. Great portions. Delicious! Can't recommend it enough.
4.5...great all-around experience. Everything we ordered was delicious. My wife and I are looking forward to coming back.
The food was OUTSTANDING
The menu is ever changing
The ingredients fresh
The pasta superb
The Rice balls for an appetizer were to die for- seriously
The staff- professional and courteous
We went in as a group of three hosting a cousin from California.
The space is one big square room with hard walls and floor and a high ceiling so the noise is a little high. We sat along the wall though where we could hear each other. Helps that there are no TVs or music.
We weren't in a hurry, and the service matched that. Our waiter was available but not always present so we didn't feel rushed.
We started with drinks. The house drink list is really interesting, as is the beer and wine list. I had a "Social Smoker" which was a really deep burbon and liquor drink - loved it!
My wife and I shared an Arugula Salad, a Calamari "Ceasar" small plate and a gluten free lobster pasta dish. The salad was fantastic - fresh, large, not too much cheese. The Calamari was beautifully cooked and presented with cherry tomatoes and watercress. Not sure why it's a Caesar, but it was tender and tasty. The pasta was a little too al dente, but quite tasty. Our cousin had it with the wheat pasta and that was a bit better - richer, better balanced. With the gluten free pasta, it was a little light.
The three of us shared a lemon custard for dessert and we all enjoyed it - very fresh, rich custard, nice amount.
I plan to go back.
We were visiting from Nova Scotia and were looking for an interesting and innovative place to dine. Viale did not disappoint ! The menu was creative and delicious. We enjoyed an exceptionally good bottle of wine, which was served by one of the owners, Mark. Very nice touch. We really enjoyed our conversation with him during the evening. Highlights of the meal were the fried cauliflower, and the potato gnocchi with wild boar. They were absolutely delicious. The service was very attentive and it was great to see Mark performing the wine service and helping to get food to tables. Our waiter was very good, too. The entire service team, including the hostess worked so well together to ensure that guests were taken care of well. A wonderful evening overall !
Outstanding food! Everything we ordered: the apps, entrees, and the dessert was wonderful. Fun vibe and interesting menu. We found Viale on the recommendation of a friend, and were not let down! Would definitely return.
