Alleia is an Excellent restaurant in the Warehouse District of Chattanooga. The Wait staff is wonderful and explains everything on both the adult beverage menu and the food menu. The drink menu is different and has many unique selections. The dinner menu is spectacular!!!! Both eclectic and Italian selections. From the Antipasto to the pork plus enticing desserts. Healthy portions... More

Unbelievable restaurant!!! The food was stupendous! From the Brushetta to the main course and on to dessert it was incredible! Our waitress Haley was terrific! If you could even say anything was amiss it was being in their back room it was a bit noisier than I think the private little booths would have been but with our large party... More

Found this restaurant on Trip Advisor. My husband and I were tired after a day of touring and wanted a good Dinner . Our server , I think her name is Carry, was awesome! She knew the menu well and was able to guide us in our choices, even wine for me! We started with beautiful fresh tomato bruschetta, followed... More

The atmosphere is great here, food is very good, and the service is usually very good as well. I would love to see more options, maybe changing out the menu more frequently? In my experience, there is not enough offered to entice a kid, even older kids. The firebox interests them, but the food does not seem to grab them.... More

So me and the family had dinner there tonight, two of us had the pizza, one had the pork and had a pasta dish and was not disappointed. Waitress was very knowledgeable and friendly. Great atmosphere, not too noisy and the staff in general was pleasant. Valet parking was a plus. I highly recommend.

It takes a lot of time and effort to make pasta by hand. However, the difference is worth it. You will become a pasta snob once you taste the difference and won't regret telling yourself, "never again" to the dried noodles down the international isle. I have eaten here numerous times. The service is never bad, but you will have... More

I really enjoyed the vibes alleia gave, but the service was slow and they had no gluten free options besides a salad. It lists that they have "gluten free options" but that was not the case. None of the pizza or pasta was available to make gluten free. Coming from out of a town, a local told us about this... More

Great food, great atmosphere. Visited early on a Sat night. Started with the Calamari, recommended, took the waiter's recommendation on salads and choose a pasta and a pizza. Pizza was good but the pasta was spectacular. So many interesting items on the menu, we need to return very soon.

Description
Thoughts of opening an additional concept in the southside of chattanooga stirred in 2004. chef lindley wanted to explore true rustic italian, but incorporate regional flavor. exceptional ingredients imported from italy and quality produce delivered from local farms make this vision a reality. situated in chattanooga's rejuvenated southside neighborhood, alleia resides in the old harrington building. the fulfillment of chef daniel lindley's dream of offering simple, italian inspired cuisine opened its doors in april 2009. chef lindley's latest venture is a unique interpretation of rustic italian cuisine, using local ingredients to create an evolving menu. alleia boasts seven types of house made pasta and a custom brick oven that reaches 750 degrees for pizza making. remarkably designed by rodney simmons of revival studio, alleia captures the warmth and comfort of a traditional trattoria, while breaking new ground in present-day restaurant design. trimmed in 300 year old wood taken from the harrington building, the space can seat 150, including a striking communal table that seats 32. the porch at alleia marries the best of al fresco and indoor dining. featuring a generous wraparound banquette, climbing jasmine and views of lookout mountain, the porch provides reprieve from the bustle of the southside. please enjoy.
