This quaint little BYOB is a gem. Service is delightful, portions are generous, and atmosphere is relaxing.

This restaurant is tucked back from Route 100 and is a BYOB. The food is always very good and the staff is efficient and friendly. Because it is a small place it has limited parking and I would definitely make reservations.

I've had great Italian food in Italy and the US. It's hard to screw up Italian food but my meal at Allegria was the most disappointing Italian I've had. Dined here a few times a number of years ago and really enjoyed it. We went with some family and everyone's meal was disappointing. My wife got the caesar salad and... More

Great authentic Italian food in a quaint atmosphere. Restaurant fills up quick due to small size. Make sure you BYOB. Will definitely return.

A great Italian restaurant coupled with the convenience of being a BYO! I dined for the first time with friends and will return! I had the risotto and it was delicious!

We have lived in 10 cities since we were married and this is our favorite Italian restaurant in any of them. Once you find a favorite dinner choice or two it is almost impossible to try other dishes so be careful. The staff is friendly and the food is wonderful. What else can you say about a really good place... More

Truly a family enterprise. Everything is made fresh, and is consistently delicious. The evening's special is always a winner, and the risotto excellent. Even better, this is a true BYOB with no corkage fee. A delightful restaurant--just make reservations!

This small, cozy Italian restaurant is the real deal! I never thought that I would be able to find a restaurant in the U.S. that makes gelato like I had in Italy. The main entree was not proportioned just right for the average appetite Unlike most Italian restaurants that serve 1 entree that requires two people to eat and lacks... More

Went to Allegria last weekend with my husband and a couple of friends, our neighbors, who have been there many times and always have recommended the restaurant. I ordered a risotto and it was different from the other ones I've had, but very good. My husband had mussels and said they were delicious. We still hadn't seen the restaurant since... More

Reservation made, dress casual, appetite open....that about sums up our experience at this family owned and operated Italian restaurant off the beaten path in Exton. A BYOB, eating at Allegria is like unexpectedly finding yourself in a homey Italian village where you are the most welcome guest. Every dish, from soup thru dessert, is a celebration of mingled flavors that... More
