I know this site is TRIP Advisor and I live in Carmel so I am not taking a TRIP. But, travelers do well to consult locals ... and usually do, I think, when they can. So, I want to say a few words about Allegro. I hadn't been there for a few years. On a whim, we thought we'd get... More

We had the clam linguini and were pleasantly surprised. Most of the cream sauce is very thick and overpowering but this one is light enough to allow us to taste the sweetness of the seafood. The meat lover pizza we ordered had so much meat on it. The crust was a bit zoggy though.

So, if you like Brooklyn pizza Allegro pizza will leave you less than satisfied. The crust was good; the sauce was good. But the cheese was Parmesan not mozzarella. Weird. Perhaps other menu items are good since the sauce was ok. The pie was a bit pricey at $26. All in all, thumbs down for take out pizza.

While my husband and daughter had pizza slices that they said were amazing - and very large, I enjoyed one of the best panini sandwiches I've ever had!

The place was hopping. Great family restaurant. The pizza looked great although I had lasagna and it was fabulous. It came with a salad and homemade bread. Worth it.

Farthest thing from gourmet. Frozen pizza has more taste. Pasta is just that, spaghetti with bland sauce. Prego is better. Only one person working lunch, poor guy.

ESTABLISHED IN 1988When we opened Allegro Gourmet Pizzeria in the summer of 1988, we did so for selfish reasons. We craved an authentic Italian experience on the Monterey Peninsula.The days of pizzerias with sawdust covered floors on lower Alvarado Street were gone. As the small fishing village known as Monterey slowly disappeared so did its soul.A few small restaurants still had some of that old feeling but they did not have the food our more traveled palates were beginning to expect. Some had, great food and a great feeling, but were too expensive or trendy to be called “local spots”. We needed a place to go to – a little “tucked away” spot to discuss life, enjoy good food, family and friends…. and still be able to pay our bills on time.So in July of 1988 we set out to capture that elusive dream; the soulful pizzeria that exists in every Italian neighborhood. No big deal, just great food, friends and wine. The kind of place that your feet take you to when your mind is not paying attention. And when you get inside, it feels good…like you are home.Allegro is a place where you can satisfy your Italian soul. Simple, healthy, delicious & unpretentious. Welcome to our little part of Italy. We hope you enjoy your stay . Nina & Jeano
