Great food and atmosphere. I ordered the pork shoulder dinner. It was very tender and garnished with very flavorful veggies. The waitress recommended it and it was fantastic. I would eat here again and hope to next time I am in town.

I often dine alone so I'm used to inattentive service, but I expected much more from this highly-recommended joint. I wasn't surprised when they tried to seat me at the bar even though most of the restaurant was empty, but they put me in front...More

I imagine that you need to make a reservation asap, because this location will be busy on Valentine's day. It's very much a romantic type dinner venue.

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.
