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

My family was visiting our son/brother who lives in Bennington, VT for the Thanksgiving holiday. We decided that ITALIAN food would be a good preface to all that turkey for the next few days. My son had not eaten at Allegro as yet but our B&B innkeeper told us that we were in for a wonderful experience. There were 7... More

We stopped in hoping to get a quick meal. The wait was going to be about 40 minutes, but a table soon opened up. One of us had the pappardelle w/bolognese sauce and the other had the spinach salad and gnocchi. Everything was very good. The service was slow, but the place was quite busy.

On my way back from Syracuse, NY business trip I was hungry and tired. Allegro was recommended by Elmer at The Hampton Inn. Great ambiance, friendly and efficient staff, Parpadelle a la Bolongnese was superb! Can't wait to make another trip to Syracuse with this stop along the way......a gem! Bonus...they stay open til 10 pm.

Outstanding in all aspects. The service is fabulous - attentive and knowledgeable staff. The wine is tasty, the portions are large and the food is GREAT. The flavor combinations are wonderful. I shared a calamari appetizer with my husband and am ready to go back for another visit less than 2 weeks later! I had the short ribs that were... More

The atmosphere is old building brick. Dark and romantic. I had one of the best meals of my life here, a fall pasta dish with balsamic/squash sauce. Mussels were fresh. Wine was great. Services was A-1. Good place to have a great meal if you're looking for unique Italian/Tuscan style dining.

My husband and I went for an anniversary. He had forgotten to make reservations but the hostess was very gracious, explaining that she could seat us but that they were booked solid after 7:00. That gave us a little more than an hour to dine which was fine with us. We loved the atmosphere in this lovely little place: brick... More
