Being locals we have had dinner over a dozen of times at Allegros. Quiet atmosphere, wonderful service, fair prices! We will continue to go to our favorite restaurant in Bennington.

Friends had been told Allegro was a good place to try so we were happy to take the ride to try it ourselves and the four of us agree we are glad we did. It is only half an hour from the Berkshires where we live. Pretty pretty ride if you go before it gets dark. We started with sharing... More

After a 5 plus hour drive we stopped here for a late dinner. The place was still busy at 7:30 pm. This place is distinctly Italian but the food is prepared with some nontraditional flavors. The food is fresh and flavorful although my husband's chicken with rigatoni was over cooked. My house salad was very good but the spaghettini with... More

A friend and I had a first ever visit to Allegro on Labor Day night. It was not busy, so our server was friendly and attentive. We asked for the driest prosecco of the two on the menu and were very happy with bottle of the Mionetto. Based on Makayla C's recommendation of the calamari, we ordered a plate to... More

My family recently spent a night in Bennington on a holiday to the Berkshires, and we made this our dinner destination. Given that Allegro was the #1 rated restaurant on TripAdvisor, and we all love Italian food, I had high expectations for our supper. Unfortunately, this restaurant proved to be a disappointment. The atmosphere was decent, but not outstanding. This... More

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
