I was so looking forward to a fabulous dinner. Unfortunately, that was not what happened. We had eaten here for my husbands Christmas party and it was excellent, so I was thinking it would be the same glorious food. So mistaken...we had to wait 20 minutes for a table that we had called ahead to reserve, our meal took an hour and 15 minutes to get to the table. The service was extremely poor. No drink refills. And the food, well, lets just say...not good. I ordered butternut squash ravioli and saw 4 measly ravioli's in the bottom of the bowl with charcoaled pork pucks on the side. I'm hoping they were just having an "off" night, but I'm not sure I can bring myself to try it again.

A great experience for our family from the NY area. The menu was small but incorporated Colorado fresh ingredients as evidenced by our superbly prepared trout. The short ribs were flavorful and tender from hours of cooking. The wine list is well thought out and pares well with the dinner options. Allegria is a great addition to the greater Carbondale community and highly recommend it.

What can I say; we loved this place - great Italian bistro ambiance and delicious fine dining entrees at moderate prices. The menu had an interesting variety of starters and entrees incorporating farm fresh ingredients from local farmers and local ranchers (only in Colorado !) as well as chef selected wines by the glass at a good value. We had a local wild mushroom crostini starter, which was great, and I had a grass fed filey minion steak with porcini-chanterelle sauce on the side that was really flavorful. I’m thinking that ‘grass fed’ and care in preparation made the difference but I really enjoyed this steak along with the sautéed spinach from local Paioni and oven roasted garlic potatoes . Although I don’t often eat red meat this reminded me what I’ve been missing and how really flavorful and satisfying a premium stake can be. We also had ‘Pasta a la Linda’ the chef’s daughter’s favorite; delicious. We washed this meal down with a wonderful Nebbiolo, a Rioja and a Can Blau Spanish blend. We finished with a gluten free Lemon soufflé with ginger snap crust.

It’s great to leave a restaurant and feel on top of the world as I did that evening. We highly recommend this restaurant.

We had high expectations as we went at the recommendation of friends. The atmosphere was pleasant, the menu interesting and varied. Unfortunately, service was very slow, painstakingly so. The chicken in my pasta was inedible. It tasted like the grease or charcoal residue on the grill. My wife was disappointed as well as the sauce overwhelmed the pasta in her dish. Our other two guests had a much better experience. We will try again because we want to see the restaurant succeed

I was very impressed with this restaurant. There are plenty of "good" dining options in Glenwood and Carbondale, but this is one of the few that offers a well cheffed, uniquely flavorful entree.
The menu is trim, which means the chef is focused on making a smaller array of offerings extraordinary. I was not disappointed.
Allegria also offers a nice wine list.
