I went there tonight for a buinessdinner - the waitors were really pro and the food omg! I never had grillet salat before - its to die for! Pork shoulder sooo tender that it fell of the bone. Brilliant! Try the Basil ice cream - sweet and herbel - cant get it off my mind.

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

My family and I were staying in Chattanooga for a night after camping throughout the smokies, and eating at various restaurants that left us unsatisfied, or sick. We were determined to find a good meal, to make up for the previous. After searching yelp, urbanspoon and trip advisor, we found what we were looking for. Allei was an impressive interior,... More

What a gem, let's start off with the Bruschetta with honey...Oh my, just fabulous. Then had the gnocchi. Fresh food is just what I was looking for. Can not wait to visit this place again.

My wife and I have been going to Alleia for our anniversary for the past 5 years. We went again this evening. All I can say is… excellent again. Service was spot on. The servers walk around in what seems to be a planned route around the site and every time they past our table the filled our glasses. Our... More

We had dinner at Alleia as a going way for a co-worker. We ate in the bar because the guest of honor felt the bar was cozier. She was right. One of the bartenders was our waiter. We couldn't have asked for anyone better. He continually checked on us, made great drinks, offered suggestions. We wanted for nothing! The food... More

I have eaten in NYC. Europe. West coast. Blah blah blah. This place is difficult to match and impossible to beat. They are my standard for quality of restaurant food. Service can be trying at times because of the snooty clientele and servers, but the people in the kitchen are chefs. They literally make the pasta by hand each day.... More

Food was cold when I got it. My drink was empty a lot. Did I want another glass of wine? Yes. Was I offered one? No. In fairness, we had a large party, but the service was SLOW. Food was pretty to look at, and was probably good when it was hot. Maybe the restaurant is better for couples or... More

Urban chic has arrived in Chattanooga! We recently joined friends for a wonderful evening meal at Alleia and couldn't have been more pleased. Everything from the appetizers to the dessert was excellent. The staff, while very professional, is not pretentious nor condescending like many chic bistros/restaurants. Like many restaurants, the interior can be pretty noisy, so if you are looking... More

We were in Chattanooga for a day and had a nice dinner here. We had the bacon wrapped dates and arrancini to start. Both were amazing. I had the mushroom ravioli and the broth it had was so fresh and tasty with garlic and herbs. Very good italian dinner. The decor was beautiful as well
