Great food and music!

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!

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

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

Yes, had a bowl of their pasta soup, came without the pasta and had a long brown hair in it!! So disgusting we canceled the rest of the order and left. Still can't get that image out of my head.

Place an order and received the wrong food. Waiter tried to convince us it was right. Spoke to the manager which admitted it was wrong. Next order was ice cold in the middle (lasagna). Had to be reheated. Then watched food orders come out on a rolling cart, they were delivered to diners, then watched the same cart get loaded... More

Allegro is easy to get to since it is off the island. We have gone there twice this month. Once for drinks and to dance inside. The music was very good - mostly 50's to 80's style. The dance floor is small. Nella Valenti's runs the place while her husband runs Valenti's closer to Route 41 By-pass. It's loud unless... More

We had reservations for 9 people at 6pm on a Tuesday evening. Arriving on time, we stood for 45 minutes waiting for our table which had sat empty the entire time we were waiting. Finally, in another 30 minutes the waitress came to get our drink requests. It was another 40 minutes before she returned to take our food orders.... More

I'm a "local" in Venice, but this was my first visit to Allegro. The decor is very nice with seating for almost any occasion. The food was very good, and a decent value, but our server was inattentive and unprofessional. (the manager was advised). I'd certainly return for the food and atmosphere.

We had dinner at this restaurant. There was no wait to be seated. Service started out to be a little slow, but wound up being very good. Food was quite good and everyone enjoyed their meals. Ambience was that of a family restaurant. This was our first visit and we will return. Prices were a little high.

I ordered a Margarita Pizza and a caesar salad. The salad was just OK, nothing special. The pizza did not have much flavor. It was very blah.
