“My favourite Italian restaurant in Ottawa!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013 via mobile

This restaurant is a real find. The food is superb, yet incredibly reasonable in price. They serve Italian fare and have a very large menu to choose fom. My favourite is the veal. The service is always excellent. It is also a very romantic setting. Each time I visit, I am rewarded for my choice of restaurants.

“Consistently excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

We dine at Allegro regularly, about once every 2 months. It is always a pleasant experience. The waiter remembers us and even what we like. The restaurant is small and intimate. The seabass is the best we can find anywhere. The wine list is perfect. We highly recommend it.

“Table for 8”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

Saturday night, 7:30 reservations made at 2:30 that day. Turned out that we had nine in our party and that was accommodated. Decent wine selection. The Inslata Caprese, not on the menu, was heavy on the balsamic and light on the basil. Veal Ossu Buco was very good. Substituted teh roasted peppers for penne arabiata. I should have stuck with the potatoes. The pasta was not al dente. It was not spicy and it had strips of red pepper in it. Finally, if you are going to have an Italian restaurant in the Little Italy section of a city, at least one front of house staff should speak Italian.

“Wonderful experiance”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

I had dinner there last night with a close friend, it was our fist time there so we did not know what to expect. The food was AMAZING, we had the sweetest waiter and the prices were reasonable for what we ordered. Everything was fresh, nice size portions and beautiful presentation. I even got a free piece of cake for my birthday!! It was so light and had a wonderful flavour. The only negetive thing is the decore - it could use an update. I can't wait to go there again!!
