Took my hubs here for his birthday while in Santa Teresa, and while we weren't so adventurous to try the highly recommended bull balls, we thoroughly enjoyed our meals. The pear gorgonzola salad was fabulous, the cannelloni was tasty, and my husband made his own concoction of pasta combining both the 4 cheese and tomato sauces. To top it off, our waitress was HILARIOUS. Great service.

Really lovely waitress, superb menu and nice atmosphere.
I had the beef rage and my husband had the fish wrapped in Parma ham. Great sized portions.
Although they do like to ship you in and out quickly even early in the evening when quiet.
Tip... never start taking plates when someone is still eating!

On my recent trip to Santa Teresa, dining at Al Chile Viola was a highlight! The food is as authentic as it gets… the chef Emiliano and his wife Luz are fabulous hosts and the quality and value are excellent. My pick for the best restaurant in town, easily!
I went back again and again!

On recommendation of the manager of the B&B we were staying, 15 of us had dinner here. Food was delicious! Our wait staff was friendly, attentive and provided great service. The menu has a lot to offer from octopus, fresh fish to steak. Yummy tropical drinks! The atmosphere was wonderful - open air with music. Very inviting!
