Great night out

When it is time to dress up and find a good place for dinner...this is it. Leave the kids home and go out for the evening and enjoy. A pretty environment friendly staff and good food.

Took out of town relatives there. They were impressed. We ate in the front bar section. They were surprised such a great restaurant was in downtown Madison.

We held our 50th Wedding Anniversary Party at Cafe Allegre in their beautiful garden room with family and close friends on a lovely Sunday afternoon. The setting was lovely, the food and service superb and everyone had a great time. The staff were so helpful and very accommodating to our every need. The chef was so personable and greeted us...

A recent visit to the Cafe Allegre proved to be a truly enjoyable meal. Our server, Roberto, was extremely courteous, informative and accommodating. The menu was extensive and all food served was timely and delicious. A parting visit with Chef Silvio was a nice ending to a fine meal. Highly recommended!

We stopped here on a Sunday for lunch (they only serve the dinner menu on Sundays). We did not think we were dressed appropriately because we were in jeans/shorts and t shirts so we just sat at the bar. The service and food were great and food was reasonably priced. I would dine again.
