It’s often hard to get a table at Viale, but you can always walk-in at the bar or a high-top table. That’s good, because the Italian menu at this bright, modern spot on Mass Ave is perfect for when you don’t know where else to go on a Tuesday night. The small plates are our favorite section of the menu (particularly the toast with duck liver mousse), but the pasta gets the job done, too.
