Food and atmosphere were perfect to enjoy a delicious meal, drinks, and good company. My only complaint is that the server was trying to rush us when we were trying to enjoy our wine and talk. Happened more than once and there were other open tables.
The chilled corn soup was extraordinary – light, smooth, with a fantastic combination of flavors
One of the best places to eat in Boston! Everything on the menu is superb
the $1 oysters were very fresh and served perfectly. The entree of bluefish was cooked to perfection. Waiter was great. All the mixed drinks were done very professionally. I'm going back soon. My new go to place for fresh well prepared food!!
The portions were perfect. I got the gnocchi with the caramelized onions, kale, cheese and sauce - it was fantastic. My boyfriend got the chicken, which was a generous portion and he enjoyed it. We got the $1 oysters (pretty good) and fried cauliflower (that plus the sauce it was in was delicious!). I got a castle island beer on tap, it was great. Our waitress was also wonderful, very sweet and attentive.
I didnt love the decor (specifically, the chairs) but the overall ambiance was nice. We had a great time, would recommend to anyone looking for well-prepared, good quality food in the mid range price.
Just ok service.
Fantastic meal and wonderful service.
Food was too salty; felt pretty overpriced for quality
I love taking business meeting here. Also a great option for people with dietary restrictions.
Fourth of July
Delicious dinner attentive staff
Great choice before going to Central Square Theater. Very good food and service. The shaved Brussels Sprout salad was excellent and perfect for two to share.
Viale is a great choice when you are in Central Square. A friend of mine introduced me to it, and we were meeting there to catch up with one another. When my friend was delayed, she called the restaurant to let me know and the hostess came right over to let me know. Steve, our server, was attentive while I waited. When we then had to hustle a bit to get in dinner before I had to leave, Steve made sure everything was fine. The food was excellent, as always. We'll be back!
Best lunch in boston
I was here with 2 friends during a busy Tuesday night dinner. Viale was consistently full, but the wait staff kept things moving, and our server hustled to get us the appetizer special during happy hour. The Italian-influenced entrees were generous and expertly prepared. While it's not a very large menu, the choices were interesting and offered good variety. We enjoyed the experience and hope to return soon.
Excellent food and considerate service. The space is pleasant too!
Everything was perfect! Great oysters, nice Muscadet, good service. Great ambiance, only thing is that is a bit noisy. But overall perfect!
I love Viale! Such a great place to meet friends for drinks and dinner. Will be back again soon.
We loved our two visits to Viale. We were a party of six (different friends) both times, and ordered all four pasta dishes on the menu, plus a flatbread, as the main course, passing all the plates around. This made for great variety and was plenty of food, especially following four vegetable appetizers. The restaurant is a bit noisy, as is par for a popular place. The food was uniformly delicious, and the waiter (we had the same waiter both visits) was friendly and helpful. We felt very welcomed in the restaurant and put it high on our list.
Viale never disappoints. This restaurant is a small jewel in the neighborhood. I've been there in the last month with several small groups for meetings and celebrations. The staff is welcoming and very efficient. The menu is excellent. There are always interesting specials. Go early and often. I can't say enough good things about this restaurant.
Met friends visiting from California, so we had lots to talk about and took way too much time to look at the menu, etc. But our server was super patient and let us stay at the table without any pressure to get moving. The food was delicious. We shared everything so got to taste almost everything on the menu. The grilled cauliflower was especially tasty. A real gem of a restaurant.
Great atomosphere and reasonably priced for how wonderful the food was. Lots of gluten free options!
The linguine verde was out of this world. The wild board gnocchi was delicious as well. The brussel sprout salad was at the top of its class in flavor and consistency. This was an exceptional experience and cannot wait to come back. Highly recommend this for all parties large and small.
The food was good, but the cocktails were terrible.
We really enjoyed our dinner. The restaurant has a great vibe, is comfortable/casual. The service was great, both our waiter and one of the owners were super helpful, welcoming, and friendly. We enjoyed several appetizers -- fried cauliflower in a delicious sauce, and grilled broccoli rabe that are both easy to recommend. For entrees, I had the bucatini and my wife had the blue cod and both dishes were really great. The wine was also very nice. We'd definitely return.
We ordered a shaved Brussels sprout salad which was very good, maybe a little heavy on the blue cheese. The wine was fine. Then one of us ordered the green lobster pasta dish. He said it was pretty good. One of us ordered the bucatini, which she liked. I ordered the lamb ribs, which if you like fat and molasses, might have been okay. I couldn’t eat them or the rolled couscous that accompanied the lamb. The couscous tasted like pure vinegar. I gave up on my meal. The waiter was very good: attentive, understanding, and patient. He removed the charge for the lamb ribs from our bill.
Best of Cambridge! Hands on owners provide wonderful food...a sophisticated cocktail menu...and the staff are all great.
Good food but limited menu
I felt we ate relatively healthy and really had great food. I had the beat salad and the potato gnocchi and the portion was perfect - i.e. good enough. Most restaurants give you too much food this was perfect to fill me but not over fill me. Brought my daughter for her birthday - she really liked it.
The food was amazing!
we had a great time
what more is there to say? oh we will be back. and we appreciate the connection with the local central square theater.
We made a reservation, but at 5:00 on a Tuesday, it wasn't necessary. By 6:00, though, it started getting crowded. We both had the chicken entree, and it was excellent. I didn't want the brussel sprouts that came with it, so the waiter offered other vegetables including potatoes. The service was excellent.
The food was exceptional! The beets, gnocchi and cod were out of this world.
Lovely ambience with ample light. Delicious food — I highly recommend the flat iron steak dish!
The food was amazing and the portions were reasonable for finer dining. The volume of music was perfect and I was able to hear my friend throughout our dinner. The waiters always made rounds to make sure we did not meet anything else. Overall great experience. The only thing that may put off some people is that their menu is small, but they seem to be helpful in accommodating dietary restrictions. Can’t wait to go back when they have their octopus again.
Limited menu for me equals expectations of perfectly cooked meal. Small portions but heavy handed on the salt. I had the gnocchi with braised wild boar. Very salty. The price was higher than expected.
We had a birthday celebration for a 25-year old daughter, hosted by her mom. Her boyfriend, same age, and her brother, 21, were also in attendance. The pizzas we ordered for appetizers were scrumptious and just right for keeping the hungry horrors away while we waited for the rest of our order. The boyfriend is still talking about the pesto pizza two days later. The oysters were super fresh and the sauces served with them were just right. We ordered a fantastic Erbaluce white wine with the pizza and oysters, sounds unusual but they went together well, and the birthday girl appreciated it very much. The menu was posted online and looking it over in advance was very helpful, especially for the appetizers and the wine menu. The primi piatti were limited in choices and the brother with lactose intolerance was more limited than mom had expected, but he was also the designated driver and the coffee was good! We asked for the red wine to be decanted before serving, which was also accomodated and the non-red wine drinkers were happy. Some of us shared plates, and that was accomodated well. The dishes were served au point, the fish and vegetables were not overcooked. The arugula salad was sublime. Also wonderful were the desserts -- the olive oil cake and rhubarb dressing and ice cream is miraviglioso! The only tricky part was that even though we had made a reservation about a week in advance, we had a 4-top table in the middle of the floor, and we arrived exactly on time, and asked for an alternative spot table, but it was not possible due to full seating capacity in the dining room. We were in the middle of the traffic pattern. It felt like every person, wait staff and diners, walking past our table was grazing my chair, and it happened many times because it was a busy early Sunday evening dinner hour.
nice food maybe a little pricey given plate sizes - overall pretty good
We’re regulars because we love this restaurant. We have plenty of choices in Cambridge, but we seek to gravitate to Viale because we know we’ll have a great meal in a friendly ambiance.
