Working at a hotel I've always refereed people who love Italian food to stop by and enjoy it. It's considered fine dinning but I didn't find the prices to be as high as I expected. My boyfriend and I enjoyed a date night there. I love how they have the lights in the window. Gives it an enchanting touch. Only... More

Found this place on TripAdvisor when in town for a couple of days. I ordered the Bolognese sauce on ribbon pasta and I can't say enough about the sauce. This was perhaps the best Bolognese I've had in years - including visits to Boston's famed North End. The pasta was done perfectly. Did I say the Bolognese was terrific? <g>... More

We decided to go to this restaurant based on other people's reviews. They were right! This restaurant is unbelievable. The ingredients were fresh and the dishes were innovative. The calamari was superb. The price was excellent. I would drive from New Hartford,CT to go here. Thank you for a great dining experience.

We were in Bennington for just one evening, and though we didn't know the area, were glad we checked Trip Advisor! Allegro is the top rated restaurant in Bennington, and for good reason. Nice atmosphere in a converted antique, brick-walled, downtown building, on Main Street, excellent selection, delicious food, reasonable prices, and good service! If your in the Southwest corner...

We split the clams, salad, shrimp and asparagus pasta and pork lion, finishing with the tiramisu. All were well prepared and seasoned and cooked properly. The pasta was very good with a very generous portion (could go for three). The clams and salad makes a nice light meal and the pork loin was cooked to a tender and moist medium.... More

This is my first time visiting Bennington,VT. I am here for work, but it is a beautiful place to visit as well. I enjoy great food, nice wines and linen when they are presented in a casual atmosphere. This little restaurant has it all. They have a nice menu and options for gluten free diets. The staff was pleasant and... More

The service was very good, the pasta and portions excellent and I'm just sorry that we didn't have enough days to go back again. It's also a very pretty restaurant.

We went to Allegro last weekend. My significant other enjoys it there although I have not had good past experiences. We made reservations and when we got there were again addressed rudely by the hostess and seated way in the back of the restaurant next to the kitchen even though there were empty window side table. When we asked were... More

I was a member of a party of 8 at dinner at Allegre. We all had a good time Everyone enjoyed their dishes and the service was attentive, albeit strectched a bit thin because the place could have used an additional server to handle the crowded dining room. I took a risk in a mountain town and ordered a seafood... More

We just spent a long weekend in Bennington, VT. A great town and area. At the advice of the owner of the B&B where we stayed we walked to this delightful restaurant and had one of the best dinners we've had in a long time! Our waitress was friendly but not too chatty and knowledgeable about the wine and menu.... More
