Flavourful food, but a snobbish waiter who served us. Natural juices made the paella the best we ever had, but the waiter was pushing for items without consideration for our tastes simply to ring the bell & increase his tip... this was obvious to us...More

We found Allegro last year and have been back a variety of times & were back last evening. Food is very good and authentic & we have always had good service. It has become one of favorite Newark restaurants.

One of the best portuguese restaurants in Newark. Service is always bad. Food is wonderful!! They need to get a sense of service at this good location.

Sausage was spectacular. Ribs and Shrimp were excellent. Portions were large but "To Go" was also available. House drink was cool and refreshing. Parking was a bit tight.

The food was good and the restaurant is nice (the outside in the summer is awesome), but the price is just too much. I would only go for special occasions.

The place was tight quarters very very loud as the night went on; however the Sangria was the best I have ever had. The shrimp and garlic was very good, and so was the grilled lobster. Don't order the clams in garlic and olive oil...More

Allegro is a wonderful restaurant in an area of wonderful restaurants (Ironbound Newark). They have delightful outdoor patio for al fresco dining. The staff is friendly and welcoming. The food is clearly Portugese and very tasty. One night we had salmon served with cockles, swordfish...More

Allegro translates into style, casual elegance luxurious appointments and delicious cuisine, taking the diner on a culinary adventure to new cuisine heights or visual beauty, spectacular tastes and daring, prepared by the Executive Chef Elisio Garcia, serve amidst a glorious open kitchen, in a Portuguese dining courtyard setting. When you walk through the doors into a kind of dining piazza, with a magnificent saltwater tank, a lovely outdoor patio surrounded by bamboos, palm trees and an amazing waterfall that takes you back to the Caribbean. Fine hand tooled decor and delectable cuisine, you are intimately dining in tranquility and beauty, tables spaced for privacy, while the enchanting transports you over seas back to Portugal.Allegro Seafood Grill is known for excellent service and exquisite dining performances, in a very artistic setting, straight from the most romantic very "in" places around the world. The important thing to recognize is that it takes a good team to accomplish good things and here owners Paulo Marralheiro and his wife, have created a team that insures the success of any dining event, just as they have created a team that has developed a generous amount of "Famous Four Star Dishes". For your convenience valet parking is available and reservations are highly recommended.
