Was starting to eat dinner after waiting for more then an hour when two young women behind us jump up screaming, while at their table. I thought they spilled water or something. Turns out a mouse had fallen from an exposed pipe about 10' overhead, hit one girl on the shoulder and bounced onto the table, landing smack on her plate... dead. NEVER AGAIN!!!
I took two friends to Viale for dinner last night and we were all quite happy with our meals. The lighting is soft and the ambiance is very good. Although our waiter forgot a few things we asked for, he was attentive without hovering and very well-mannered. If I had to critique one aspect, it would be that Viale doesn't have skim or lowfat milk. I don't like whole milk in my coffee, but it's the only milk they have. Viale is one of the best restaurants in the area.
I went here once for Mother's Day and the food came out cold!!!!! I kid you not. We were one of the first people in there and they couldn't get it right. The second time I went it was superb though, but that could be because I went with someone that worked there. Who knows. Regardless even the worst restaurant doesn't have food come to the table cold. Very sad I must say. Please make sure that never happens again.
I never wrote a review for this restaurant but feel compelled to as I have been there many times and never never disappointed. This is a welcoming place and is terrific authentic italian food. Great wine list, especially the Argentinian and Italian wines. One hint when you is that both owners are almost always there and their families are also there working. Terrific food. When you walk in ask Dominick, usually at the door, for what he would recommend and you will never be disappointed. Also you will notice if you go several times that you will see many of the same faces. For people to regularly go to a restaurant tells you something of the quality. Enjoy
I don't know where to start. The food is tasteless and the wine is awful. The service was bad, whatever service i got whenever the waitress stopped talking to friends at the bar. I will never come back here again.
Food taste like fast food. Service was bad and the wine is way overpriced. Not much food is made on site so all pastas are not home made and who knows when they get their seafood delivery. Don't waste your money.
So you can see there's a good deal of loyatly to this restaurant for the regulars. Loyalty is nice, and having people read this site and comment on every negative review so strongly- is a bit suspect to me- so let me write that i've been to Viale's probably 15 times in the past 2 years. I live in Trumbull- formerly from NYC where I ate at terrific restaurants. I agree that this area is lacking somewhat in good places. I like Viale alot. I like the owners, and I like the atmosphere. However, they'd be fools if they didn't acknowledge that the restaurant is often empty except for the bar. The food is good. I like it, and I like the veal chops especially. But I've had some duds there- like the pork shops- they tasted tough and what they were served with I would never have chosen and didn't like. So I've had bad and good there. I can tell you that my husband always orders dessert and he thinks they are priced unreasonably high. I would tend to agree. A slice of Tiramisu or Cake at $7.00 is a NYC price and though this is tasty food, it's not NYC.
