This eatery has a very cozy feel in what seems to be a converted house to restaurant in a New England setting.The menu is consistent with Italian menu with fish component to claim it beach like location.Great service and it seems the help has been with them for awhile.Its casual and good.

Café Allegre is a nice place for a lunch or dinner. There is a good selection of menu choices, prices are in a good range for the excellent quality of food and great service in a pleasant atmosphere. It's a good choice for celebrating a special evening or event. I look forward to returning soon.

Had a chance to sample lunch here thanks to a friend meeting me there-I was so pleasantly impressed, I have been recommending it to everyone.

Looked online (Thanks, TA!) for an Italian restaurant for lunch traveling though CT on I95. What a find! Superior food, lovely atmosphere, excellent service. We wanted to try everything on the menu, but were delighted with our choices. Molto delizioso! Fabulous creme brulee for dessert. We left satisfied and trying to figure out how to get to Madison again soon!

This is a upscale resturant, the food is very good & the staff is very nice, it's a little fancy for me but have been taken there a few time and enjoyed it, it's not a jeans kinda place, you need to dress up to fit in, great for special occasions

We have lived in Madison over 40 years and continue to enjoy the consistently good, reasonably priced food at Allegre. And unlike so many other restaurants this one has a sound level that actually allows you to carry on a conversation at the table! For anyone visiting Madison, give it a try. You won't be disappointed.
