Fantastic evening of great fun, food, and wine

Tavern Allegra is a small restaurant in a tiny alley that you have to visit. The food is terrific, the wine list quite well rounded, but what makes this restaurant a must visit is the people and the fun.

In the last 30 years I have probably averaged two meals a week in restaurants. Never, in that time, have I have left a restaurant speechless until tonight. First off the food is fine - maybe the restaurant will not win a Michelin star any time soon, but still excellent. I also loved the ambience- only 15 or so tables... More

I found the restaurant to be very charming with intimate and attentive service. The live music and dancing were fun and entertaining. The food, however, was spectacular. Rarely have I seen such generous portions of a full lobster and fresh pasta which ravished very quickly. One of the best dishes of my trip in Italy!

Jason, travellers should be informed on the law of the country they are visiting. Contact your consultant or look up Internet to know what is the " SCONTRINO FISCALE" since you did not understand (WHAT WE MEANT) when we explained about it at 20,51, as reported in the machine. At that time, since we had provided the "PRE-BILL" before issuing... More

Go here for the fantastic service and to support a lovely local restaurant. We had mozzarella and tomato salad, pork in mushroom sauce and cannelloni - unfortunately on the latter, it really wasn't up to scratch, I've had better microwave cannelloni - shame as the restaurant itself is lovely and the family who run it go above and beyond.

Hello Sarah, probably, once you ordered a "FILLET" in green pepper sauce you did not know what it was. Anyhow, once tasted and realized that it was not satiusfactory, you should have told us immediately. As is customary for us to ask the guests if everithing was working well, we found out that while the other members of the family... More
