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

Fantastic atmosphere for a nice romantic dinner with your better half or a nice dinner with a group of friends.

Excellent dinner (it was rich but - hey - what else can you expect?) Had the pasta with mushroom sauce. Would recommend it.

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

My dinner of shrimp & asparagus was okay but there was way too much sauce, too much garlic and light on the asparagus. The asparagus was very thin and somewhat stringy. This is the type of dish that shouldn't be offered unless there is perfect asparagus available. My wife had a dish gnocchi with mushrooms and fiddlehead ferns that was... More

Great dinner tonight at Allegro Ristorante. The place was busy when we arrived so we sat at the bar for a drink while we waited for a table to be ready. Once seated, we began with the calamari which was served with a unique and wonderful balsamic reduction. Very tasty. Then we ordered the mussel and spaghetti special. The Prince... More

Had dinner tonight at Allegro Ristorante and wanted to write about it while I had the chance. This was a birthday dinner for my husband, 3 couples total. The food is wonderfully prepared, interesting and served well. Appetizers were great....warm spinach salad, mussels and fried calamari....all excellent! Main dishes we had were the braised short ribs, arctic char, swordfish with... More

We were in Bennington for 4 nights, lodging at a local Inn. We were skiing each day (45 min away) so we really were not interested in cleaning up and eat out the evenings we were in town. Before the trip I had done research on where we wanted to eat, based on menu, prices and what I felt out... More

3 couples met half way between Lake George, NY & Pittsfield, Ma. Definitly worth the drive. Calamari, Spinach Salade & Gundi apps were different, but delicious. Best calamari we ever had. 2 of us had short ribs. Very tasty & tender. The mashed potatoes with it needed some gravey or sauce with it. Too dry. Others had Artic Char &... More
