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

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
