Viola was born in Oppido Mamertina, in the same province of Reggina Calcio. Viola made his Serie A debut for Reggina on 11 January 2009 against S.S. Lazio. He also played twice at 2008–09 Coppa Italia.
On 30 January 2012, Palermo announced to have purchased Viola from Reggina in a co-ownership agreement with the club, for €1.8 million in a 4½ year contract. The player would stay on loan at Reggina until the end of the 2011–12 Serie B season.
On 1 July 2013 Ternana acquired Viola from Reggina, with Palermo retained the 50% registration rights. In June 2015 the co-ownership deal expired, as Ternana did not purchase him from Palermo. However, Palermo also released Viola for free.
