While spending the night in Bennington, we had the pleasure of dining at the Allegro Ristorante. The food was amazing, and the service very personable. We were able to enjoy our meal without feeling rushed. The menu offers some more traditional Italian dishes than you would normally see, and they are prepared to perfection.

Very good Italian food in a nice setting. The rabbit and fresh ricotta meatballs were flavorful. The kale salad had just enough dressing to complement the freshness of the greens. The mains were a succulent short ribs and an arctic chat on a pure of beans. It's unusual to find Sardinian wines on wine list and we enjoyed it immensely.... More

This is in a pleasant storefront space on the shady main street. Nice and welcoming host/servers. My waiter was very helpful as I figured out how to order the right amount (not too much!) of food. He warned me, correctly, that "We're a big-servings kind of place." I had a Manhattan and then the spinach salad, which was very good... More

The restaurant is quiet, attractive and well staffed. We got there fairly late and had no trouble parking nearby. My Allegro salad was a meal in itself and my husband enjoyed his grilled sword fish and kale Caesar salad. There were many tempting items on the menu, but you can only eat so much. Tiramisu was delicious. They even had... More

A really nice find in an area that does not seem to have many nicer ambianced restaurants. Our dinners were also quite good.

OMGoodness! Our hotel recommended this restaurant, we had just driven 600+ miles and asked for a good local Italian restaurant. We had the pork tenderloin (balsamic vinegar, garlic & brown sugar glaze) -huge portion, pork tender and moist. Also, ordered the fettuccine alfredo, light and creamy (with plenty of garlic - which I love) Only regret, we didn't leave room... More
