We enjoyed a delicious pasta with olive oil and garlic - just the right amount of garlic! The service was good and the staff friendly. The warm , intimate atmosphere was spoiled by the TV set and the evening news. Could we just enjoy the pleasant ambience and Italian cuisine? If the TV must be on... read more

The food was terrible and the service wasn't much better. Obviously the value wasn't there also. Will not go back.

A really nice place to relax and enjoy a good meal, the beautiful Florida sunshine, and have your pet with you. If you want a place for a nice glass of wine and just dessert, it is also a good choice. They do not rush you which is nice. Relax and enjoy!

The service was horrible and the food was something we could make at home. The table was wobbly. The server never came back to check on us and took 15 minutes to get a glass of water. Had to track someone down just to pay and in the parking lot there was a rat.

I ordered the 14" pizza, $11.74. The crust was neither Sicilian style or Neapolitan. It was something in between It was doughie. There was too much cheese and the sauce was bland. The price was average but I would never order pizza there again. Too bad; Nella, the owner is sweet.

Not as good as last year, but certainly not bad, Allegro offers a beautiful outdoor and indoor dining opportunity's, ambiance and decor. Our waiter was outstanding, knowledge and extremely attentive. We ordered a Bell pepper and Pepperoni 14 inch pizza, It was good but not as good as last year. The fourteen inch pizza provides an additional meal for the... More

We've been to this restaurant several times over the last couple years. The food is fabulous Italian fare and the service is very good! Tuesday nights they have wonderful jazz music - if you go then, be sure to call ahead to make a reservation, because it's always packed!

Went with a group of friends. There were two tables of us. The other table had their salads, etc before my table even ordered. I ordered chicken Madeira which was very good. For my starter, I ordered pasta fagioli for a $2 upcharge. I thought it was terrible with no pasta, no tomato base, more like a bowl of navy... More
