We went for dinner today and really enjoyed our meal the wine and the brusketta. It was an all around wonderful experience.

Overall wouldn't recommend. The food was okay at best. Wasn't terrible but considering the main dishes all start off at at least 20 dollars, definitely not worth the money. Spaghetti that came with the chicken parmesan tasted like it was out of a can. Got...a bruschetta appetizer and the bread was completely soggy, couldn't even hold it up. The chocolate mousse cake was room temperature, which doesn't lend to flavorful eating. For the prices they charge, definitely go elsewhere. Staff was also not very friendly. Came in and nobody greeted me for a minute then someone finally came up to say "What do you want?" Overall bad experience and won't be returning. Go to Olivia in Tampa instead if you want good Italian food for the prices they charge. I have left this review on both Google and Yelp and was attacked on both by the owner. If you click on negative reviews you will see the same trend. Any negativity and he attacks you like a child. Extremely rude and cannot take criticism well at all. Never actually responds to the review of his food, just resorts to attacking the reviewer. Extremely immature and speaks a lot about his character. The food is poor for the price and he can't seem to accept that. Perhaps he should take a good look at himself and how he conducts himself as a business owner. Very disappointing.More

Wow! We took a very short ride from the Seminole Casino to enjoy one of our best meals out. Made to order authentic dishes with delicate delicious flavors. Mussels were fresh and tender and the Veal Valdostana was incredible! So nice to have live entertainment...on a Wednesday evening. Service was impeccable- thanks Nancy! Make sure to use your GPS, the restaurant tucked away, but will easy to find next time.More

My friend and I had a lovely meal here! The food was absolutely delicious: the appetizer of mozzarella, tomato and crostini; the salmon and eggplant entrees; the Prosecco and the cappuccino! The atmosphere was good, and my girlfriend and I sat there and chatted, catching...up on each other's lives. We didn't realize the restaurant closed at 8:00, and the staff was gracious and didn't shoo us away! What a great evening of food, drink, and conversation.More

We found the owner several times very nasty to his workers and some customers. He should not be in business We found out that many people have stopped going there because of his attitude unpleasant

My mom loved the food. She wrote that it was delicious. Grubhub had made a mistake but the restaurant fixed it, the lady on the phone was sweet and helpful. The delivery was right on time and the driver even texted me to say that...he was there delivering the food. Thank you. Making my mom feels special - especially now that we are living through this coronavirus emergency - meant the world to me. Thank you.More

My husband grew up around an Italian family in Tampa and pretty much got spoiled with the taste of real authentic Italian food. We visited Allegria a few weeks ago and we both agreed the sauce is way too sweet for our liking. I don’t...know of Italian sauce to be sweet so it was a disappointment for sure! Nice people and our waitress was great but we probably wouldn’t go back unless we knew the sauce recipe changed. Nice and cozy atmosphere though😊More

A nice italian restaurant with authentic cuisine and taste. You don’t have to dress up too much and you can enjoy the amazing taste of Italy in small restaurant in Brandon!

My daughter & her boyfriend frequent this place often & she raved about the veal. I come from NYC & have not been able to find good veal cutlet like back in NYC. We were looking for a place to have lunch & she suggested...Allegria & said you must try the veal dish Veal Valdostana. We were disappointed as it was not on the lunch menu but we asked Ivy & she said of course you can order it & gave us the dinner menu. We both ordered this dish & WOW it was delicious. The price was a little high but not really as they give you suck a big portion so we both had take home half the dish & had dinner the next night @ home. Ivy the waitress was a delight & also Frank the host was very nice. The chef who I think is also the owner came out to ask how we liked everything& of course we said delicious. I would highly recommend this place & the veal to all my friends & when my New Yorkers come to visit that's where I will take them.More
