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

My family and I had a wonderful dinner here yesterday - it was an outstanding experience. All courses, and I mean all, were a treat and perfectly prepared. A fresh seafood salad special appetizer, an escargot app with a mushroom cream sauce. Main courses included seafood in a tasty red sauce, scallops in a light broth with spinach and angel... More

We recently had dinner in the more casual seating area in the bar. My husband's steak was perfectly cooked and delicious. I chose one of the specials, and our server (who obviously was still learning the menu) did not describe it very well. It arrived as something pretty different (ingredients were accurate - assembly was not). I was a little... More

We ere invited to a rehearsal dinner here. The service was impeccable from start to finish. Drinks were served quickly and staff was extremely attentive. The room was elegant and warm, although a bit noisy when all were seated. The food was carefully served without rushing. Obviously this place is used to these kinds of events and we would go... More

We love to go to RJ Julia's and often eat lunch at Allegra after we've browsed the bookstore and the shops. Have sampled the shrimp scampi, sole francese, various frittatas, all of which have been delicious. Servers are always pleasant and knowledgable. You can't go wrong here!
