The Right Spot

For a relaxing dinner in comfortable setting. Excellent, well prepared food from diverse menu by efficient staff. Compares quite favorably to any big city hot spot. Go.

Owner/chef is a genius! And entrees run from about $10 to over $20, so it's a real community restaurant, pulling in happy people from all income levels. Wait staff is very pleasant. Fun to look out, from several tables, at the sidewalk and Main Street. ........ My favorite dishes: 1) linguini with sauteed shrimp and asparagus, served in a creamy... More

My husband and I received a gift card as a holiday present. We stepped a little out of our zone in dining at Allegro (very classy) but it turned out to be a wonderful evening. The service was great, the atmosphere was relaxing and the food tasted so good even my husband (picky eater) enjoyed everything.

In all good conscience I have to re-review Allegro. A recent Saturday night visit was abysmal. The salad was big - but limp, tired, and drowning in balsamic. The calamari was just plain inedible - the squid itself was passably tender but the coating was greasy and so heavy that most of it fell off the pieces. So what came... More

If you want to take your wife or girlfriend out one night or you want to impress your friends this is the place to go. Make reservations on the weekends. The service is wonderful, they know their menu and also their wine list. The menu is out of this world, I have never gotten a bad meal or a meal... More

The pasta with mushrooms and cream sause will definately fill you if you are hungry. The mussels were also quite good as an appetizer. Service was attentive, but not over powering, just right. MAKE reservatioins as seatinmg ilimited and quite popular for Friday or Saturday evenings. So if in the Bennington area for dinner, make Allegro a must visit for... More

We decided to eat here late in the day, and we were seated promptly without reservations. Everything was uphill from that point on. Our server(#1) was delightful, attentive and professional. The food was delicious, and we were not rushed at all. A must dine stop if you are in the area

This is a big compliment, as Jersey prides itself on its Italian restaurants. Allegro has a warm and inviting atmosphere with professional servers and an ambitious menu. My pasta dish was well executed (and large - it could/should have been shared). The char was pronounced perfectly cooked and delicious. The music was romantic and added to the nice feel of... More

Let me first say that I am a Chef and I've eaten all over the world. Let me say second that I was very surprised to find a great fine dining experience in Bennington Vermont! My boyfriend and I arrived with no reservation and were seated immediately. We ordered within minutes and service was excellent. Interesting selection of wines and... More
