Allegre had catered my son's wedding and I was suitably impressed. So we thought we'd give the restaurant a try for dinner, as well. We were not disappointed. We arrived around 6 pm on a weeknight and were seated immediately. Amanda was our server, and she did a fab job of reciting (in scrumptious detail) every special offered that evening.... More

A favorite restaurant in a beautiful, downtown, shoreline town. This restaurant is a perfect spot to enjoy a dinner midweek or to have a lovely romantic night. There is also a back sunroom where you can host special occasions. The food is always delicious with specials offered to keep the menu fresh. Take a stroll down the Main Street in... More

Great place for special occasions and to take out-of-town guests. The food is always good and reasonably priced for the the romantic setting. Service is prompt and professional. Food is always hot and well presented. My husband thinks Chef Silvio's Chicken Parmesan is the best, I'm partial to the veal dishes. There are always wonderful special appetizers and entrees as...

Great atmosphere, great service. However, the food was very mediocre. Would not go back. Madison certainly needs better restaurants in this town.

Our dinner group was 10 people which can tend to be a challenge for some places. Cafe Allegre did an excellent job having apps and entrees all together. The overall experience here is consistently excellent!!

I've been to Cafe Allegre many times. It's always good. Knowing a restaurant is consistently good means a lot on many levels. The dining rooms are lovely. The service excellent. It's a delight to be there.

This is a great restaurant and worth a detour if you're in the eastern CT beach area. From our waiters(service) to the food, I can heartily recommend this restaurant. I have now eaten here twice in 1-month with a total of 9 people and all thoroughly enjoyed their meals and service and at reasonable prices. We will return and I... More
