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

Great food and a great atmosphere, the best combo for a successful restaurant. Great Italian Restaurant! I wish the restaurant could come up with happy hour specials (including drinks and food) and dinner drink specials. That would be AMAZING!!

Monday night's crowd was very small so are server was not over worked. All of the entries looked great and my Spicy Chicken Paste dish was delicious and like no other. Small but very good beer selection included a local craft brew, Stone IPA and some other main stream yellow stuff. Reservations are highly recommended for prime evenings like Thursday... More

We had a lovely dinner at Allegro last night. The wine was great, the food tasty, servers attentive and it had a pleasant ambiance. We would have given Allegro a 5th star had we not had a table that had a view behind the bar area. The bar area was a mess - overflowing trash can and general disorder. I... More

Not a traditional Italian menu....more fine dining with pasta dishes. Excellent food and service and good ambiance. Prices reasonable.

Excellent Italian Restaurant on the main drag in Bennington. The ambiance was nice, service was excellent. Meal was delicious. It lived up to all the Tripadvisor reviews and then some. Nice price-value ... less expensive than the Publyck House and a much better meal. Enjoyed both Allegro and Publyk House. I give the edge to Allegro.

We had dinner at Allegro Ristorante on our way to Mount Snow for a few days of skiing. What a perfect way to start our mini vacation. Food was excellent. Atmosphere was excellent. Staff was attentive and friendly. We loved that we were able to order half size pasta portions which gave us the opportunity to try a few of... More
