“Excellent local restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2013

I've been a loyal customer of Allegro for several years now. Not only is it handily situated on Victoria Road just opposite Surbiton station, but it serves good, wholesome Italian food - pizzas and pastas, with a daily specials board. It has to be said that the value is absolutely fantastic. There are few restaurants which serve such a good meal at such reasonable prices.The family who run the restaurant are lovely people: they make you feel like a valued customer and the manager circulates throughout the evening, giving the place an informal and friendly feel. Open 7 days a week, it's always busy but never so thronged you can't get a table. One thing friends always comment on is the amazingly realistic painting of a rope bridge above the bar. This just adds to the great atmosphere. Highly recommended.

Went with friends last night, the place was busy but the staff were on top of it. Food was great, owner and waitress delightful and great value. Well worth a visit.

“Always a favourite in Surbiton”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2013

We eat here about once every 2 months as no longer live in Surbiton. Without fail we are greeted by the owner/waiter and enjoy a no-fuss, good value meal. Its not as posh as the Italian at the other end of the high street but the bill at the end of the night is also a lot less!!

“Nice place for lunch”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2012

We went here for a late lunch when new to the area - it's ok pasta and very large servings but can't really comment on the atmosphere as we were very late so not a usual lunch experience.
