Good good at Viales

we go yo Viales about once a week. My husband Russell thinks it is the best Ribeye in Ct. He orders it each and every time. I vary my dinners from shrimp scampi to chicken picatta and the specials. Russell always orders bottles of Mikes special wine. The desserts are home made and delicious. Try it... read more

Viale was a good choice for early dinner on a recent Tuesday. The atmosphere is very warm, dark wood tables and paneling, the server friendly. We enjoyed our food and was able to linger and chat without being rushed.

We were driving around looking for something different....different than the usual ones we go to...Came across this after searching in TripAdvisor...they had gotten good reviews..So we give it a try. It was great. An excellent steak...very tasty. Service was refreshing. My husband had the grilled calamari--thought it was excellent. A nice find. Will definitely head back there.

Been going since the week it opened and have never had a bad meal. Tom and Dom, the owners make you feel welcome. I don't say this lightly but with a doubt the best escarole and beans anywhere. The pasta and chicken dishes are great, and large, but also try the steaks, especially the cowboy steak. This is a great... More

Viale...a great place for pasta, a steak, chicken and seafood...and did I mention pasta! A terrific place to visit with family or just a night out with friends. Of course, it feels like home to us...stop by Viale in Black Rock!

It may not be the best meal I've ever had but it is one of the best meals you will get for the money. If you are the type of person who thinks nothing of going into Brooklyn and paying a lot of money at Peter Luger's for one of the great steaks you'll ever eat, then maybe Viale is... More

Their 20 oz ribeye was possibly the best steak we have ever had ever. It was tasty and prepared perfectly (medium rare requested). We've had the New York strip before and it is also delicious. The manager chooses the best ingredients (certified Angus) and takes great pride in the preparation and service. we have eaten in expensive (and respected) steak... More

My family and I went to Viale for my husband's birthday, and had an amazing time. Our food was super tasty! I tried a chicken scarpariello which was excellent! We didn't feel rushed or anything, the waitress was very attentive and she seemed to know what she was doing. The owner was attentive also, as he approached us and made... More

Went there with a date this Sunday night and we decided to eat at the bar. Mistake. There were only 3 people at the bar, and the entire place had a grand total of 15 people. We sat down, and the bartender barely acknowledged us, she was too busy socializing with the waitresses and flirting with a guy at the... More

Not sure where to begin. I've been here several times in small groups and large groups. The food is always outstanding. The place is clean, as are the bathrooms. That's what I expect and that's what you get when one of the owners is always there watching over things making sure it's all nice nice. If I had to make... More
