I was impressed by the menu and variety of appetizers, soups, salads and entrees offered. I'm a foodie, and this is definitely my kind of restaurant. Even though it's "Italian", there is absolutely something for everyone.The menus change frequently, maybe daily? I had the best, most tender pork shoulder with vegetables and a balsamic reduction. My friend had the gulf... More

We had reservations on a Saturday night. It is a must for a party of 12! Walking up to the building, we were intrigued by the front door and gas lanterns. We were excited to see what this place offered. We were seated in the middle of the floor at one of their long tables, sharing a table with a... More

Loved this little spot. Sat in the outdoor seating area and it was very nice. Our server was great. We had a party of four on a Saturday night and all went great. We had the Calamari (great) Bacon Wrapped Dates (Very Nice) and the Ricotta Bruschetta (Fabulous). Entrees ordered were Salmon, Quail, Duck and the Risotto. All in all... More

This was my first visit to Alleia and I'm afraid I wasn't as impressed as everyone else. First of all, I know that this is an upscale Italian restaurant and that most people probably order wine to drink with dinner; but I'm a southern gal that needs her sweet tea with her meal out. There was no sweet ice tea,... More

My husband and I were enjoying our anniversary spending time traveling through Mentone, Alabama, ending up in Chattanooga. We wanted to eat Italian food, and since we've already been at Tony's (which I've also rated), we decided to try Alleia. And I am so glad we did! We called ahead of time for a reservation (for 2) to be seated... More

Completely disappointed. We walked in with reservations made 2 weeks in advance for a somewhat private dinner experience for my husband's bday. From the time we walked in, and there was no hostess in sight for 15 minutes, to the very much not private dining table between 2 loud groups, to the not so impressive food...I'm shocked that this place...

My name is Nate Cannon, and I am the general manager of Alleia. First, I want to apologize for your experience Saturday night. We dropped the ball, and I'm not going to try to excuse it. I'm so honored that you chose our restaurant to celebrate your husband's birthday, and I know the experience wasn't up to either of our... More

The service is how all places should be in a dining experience. One person at our table did not like her drink and 4 people ordered the same drink and the waiter told the bartender that it wasn't right and he made it right. Way to go Tim; you give great service. The atmosphere in this place is perfect with... More

We first dined at Alleia's for our anniversary in 2010, and it felt like a "special occasion" place. The food and service were spectacular. Fast forward to August 2014, and this place felt like a "Macaroni Grill". Seriously. It had lost its "special occasion" feel. We had made dinner reservations for a birthday. We were seated in the front (not... More

Was in town on business and a friend recommended Alleia for a nice meal at a reasonable price. I was incredibly shocked - in great way - when I arrived. Nice location, well designed decor, cool music and great food not to mention a hip and well-dressed crowd. I was only disappointed that I was solo as this would be... More
