Nice place to eat with good food, but it has a pretty tired menu in a part of town with few options for dining.

The women in my family are allergic to garlic. Frequently servers forget that sauces or condiments can also have garlic in them and because we told the server before we ordered we assume the food has no garlic in it. Not the case with our server at Allegre! He asked the kitchen if the house dressing (champagne vinaigrette in it... More

This restaurant was suggested to us by our hotel which was 12 miles away but worth the drive. The food tasted wonderful, was well presented and not too bizarre for my picky taste. Each of the three of us had something different (fish, chicken and veal), and each person raved about their meal. Service and atmosphere were great. I didn't... More

Allegre has such good food!!! They offer a really good selection on the menu as well as several specials. The apps, entrees, and deserts are all very good. Everything is so fresh. The portions are a good size so I can't imagine leaving hungry. There is a nice wine list as well as a full bar offering. The staff is... More

we went with the family to try another Italian restaurant on the shoreline and were pleasantly surprised by the service and quality of the food here. They are now our favorite! We were in the front area which is a bit noisy with the bar nearby. Next time we will try the back room which looked a little more formal... More

What a beautiful way to spend Father's Day, with my friend here in Madison, CT. The quiet ambiance and tasteful decor of this restaurant is one that is "a keeper!" The staff is very pleasant and welcoming as well as efficient without being "stuffy!" The food is prepared and presented in a very appealing way, and then it is delicious!... More

A surprise as we live in Madison, but had never had dinner on their porch. It was a delight. I have always loved the Rollitini. My husband tried the Pork loin, he enjoyed it. Mom-in-law was very happy with the shrimp Allegre. Just a nice , enjoyable Sunday dinner.

Highly recommended by a friend who lives in Madison, Cafe Allegre proved to be even better than expected. The service was unusually good, and the menu offered many interesting choices. My wife had the Lumache Mediterrano (escargot and wild mushrooms over pasta) and really loved it. I had the Salmon Sofia (salmon and lobster pieces in a lobster sauce with... More
