Having heard good comments about Allegro, my cousin myself and our wives tried it out last Thursday evening. The food was good, but the entertainment was exceptional! Guest artists from the crowd, including an incredible finale by the owner, sung in Italian, really was a special treat.

Visited here specifically to hear the Patricia Dean trio, with Danny Sinoff (fantastic jazz!!) and was very pleasantly surprised by the food. Shrimp scampi was tender and garlicky - just the way it should be. Tried some penne with marinara - sauce was very good, made with fresh ingredients, pasta was al dente, as ordered. But the absolute star was... More

Great food! Always have leftovers for lunch. Staff is very friendly and they have entertainment. (We have not participated but seems to bring in a crowd.)

We stopped in for lunch and had a wonderful meal. I had the ricotta ravioli. The pasta and sauce were very good. My husband had spaghetti and meatballs-also very good. I'm Italian and have found it rare to enjoy sauce dishes in Italian restaurants, but Valenti's is an exception. Really good, authentic Italian food-at least the two entrees we enjoyed.... More

Nice place to visit locally. Friendly, excellent service, good Italian food. Their specialty is having a jazz night once a week with an open dance floor! (Check for which night as it sometimes changes.) The jazz is first rate as this whole area is filled with older/retired jazz musicians who simply can't put their "axes" down!

I went last night with a couple of my friends to enjoy the Jazz group play, it was my first dining here. Our server was a small Spanish lady, I think her name was Thelma or Delma. FIRST OFF, we ordered our drinks and to my surprise it was happy hour which of course made me very happy! After I... More

Allegro Bistro offers music most nights of the week. If you like jazz, go on Thursdays. I was with friends and we enjoyed Happy Hour prices on our drinks and chose food from the appetizer menu. Portions were generous for apps---shrimp scampi, mussels, salads were all good. I had the crab cake but would not do that again....too fried, dry.... More

We go here frequently for a consistently good pizza and to watch/listen to the live music/entertainment and dancing. It's quite a local hotspot! Of course, the average age is probably 65-80 years old, but it's great to see people out enjoying themselves and living life. Service is always slow, so don't go here if you have less than 1 1/2...

Have driven buy dozens of times and finally stopped in the last week of June. The pizza was VERY good....and the way they load it up, 3 toppings is plenty although we went for 5. Good happy hour drink prices and a decent inexpensive house wine. Draft beer was a little on the high side but a good selection of... More

While visiting my sister for her birthday I asked her to pick a restaurant so that I could take her and four others out for dinner. I am so glad that she picked Valenti's Bistro as we were not disappointed. We were greeted with a warm smile and immeadiately seated. Our waitress Jacki was very friendly and efficent in taking...
