Al Chile Viola blew our minds! It was an amazing experience! They are closed on Sundays so we went on both Friday and Saturday evenings for dinner. We've eaten many great meals and the two we had there were both top notch. Emilio and Luce are a dynamite husband & wife team. Emilio is the head chef while Luce runs the front of the house. Everyone and everything at this restaurant was beautiful. We had the tuna carpaccio, the bull balls ravioli (which you'd never know was bull balls if someone didn't tell you, they are minced with herbs and so smooth--like a foie gras texture), the shrimp & eggplant ravioli, beef lasagna, and the pear and pecorino salad. I can definitely say it was the best ravioli in a light herbed cream sauce, and the best beef lasagna I've ever ever eaten. My boyfriend has traveled through Italy and he said the same thing! Everything was so delicate and had such a balance to it. The tuna was so fresh and light and I'm still dreaming about the pear and pecorino salad! Our waitresses both nights were super attentive and kind and fun and personable. Friday evening they had live music and it really added an extra special vibe to the atmosphere. We were staying at the Hotel Manala and Al Chile Viola was just a 5 minute walk from the hotel. Can't say enough great things about this restaurant!
