good service and delicious food, definitely come again
Great evening again. The food was just as good as ever..Service was perfect. Looking forward to going back.
Excellent food and service delicious veal parmesan.
Food was amazing, everything tasted so fresh and home made with such quality! Even better was the phenomenal service! This was my second time at allegro and I will most definitely be coming back for more! The atmosphere and ambiance is just perfect for either an intimate dining experience or a large dinner party. One of the best restaurants I’ve been to in Ottawa!
Wonderful food, excellent service and lovely atmosphere.
Unbelievable restaurant! The food was fabulous, the serve was amazing and the hospitality of the owner was beyond words. If you have not experienced Allegro yet, you’ve missed out.
Great food. Always impresses.
One of us had the seafood pasta which came with my friend gave two thumbs up for and I had the Nona with the chicken and red peppers. The pasta was cooked to perfection and the portion was a generous size. The fresh, hot bread on the table was delicious especially on a cold, wet spring evening. The dessert was cheesecake which was not heavy or overly sweet, and really nice way to finish the meal. I look forward to my next visit.
Love this place.
The food and service were excellent. Unfortunately, we were seated next to a large family with young children and it was noisy
Very poor reception - we arrived 5 or 6 mins early for a 6.30 reservation. The table was not ready but the manager acted as if we should just go outside and wait. He didn't apologize, but made it feel we were at fault for being early!. Eventually he offered a seat at another table temporarily.
Starters were fine as was the server, but all the main courses were poor - over cooked and tasted as if they came from a tin. Again, no recognition of a problem from the manager.
We were regulars, but we won't be going again.
Everything about the evening went perfectly. The online reservations, the service, the wine - chosen by our server, the salads, the warm bread, the main courses were delicious and hot. Everything was fresh and extremely tasty. Our server deserves special respect and kudos.
A great balance of elegance and simplicity. Allegro is perfect for a quiet conversation with Sinatra songs playing softly in the background. The food and service were excellent! My friend had the linguine with perfectly cooked scallops, shrimps and mussels. I had the veal parmigiana with roasted vegetables. Delicious! The cappucino was the best I ever had! Thoroughly enjoyed our dinner experience! Thank you!
Great food and ambiance. The waiter was attentive but not overly so. Perfect. The trout special was very good.
Great atmosphere and service. The complimentary bruschetta was very good, chicken Marsala was excellent, the tiramisu was superb! Had the house wine which is an really good Merlot. Found prices very reasonable as well as the service that was impeccable . Will definitely return.
Allegro has a very nice atmosphere, the service was pleasant and efficient; the gentleman serving us was attentive without hovering. The food was excellent, generous and well presented. My partner and I experienced a memorable evening.
The food and service were excellent, absolutely top notch. My companion has lived and traveled in Italy and was in need of some risotto. We had the sea food risotto with a wonderful white wine. She was extremely pleased with the food and said this was the one of the best risottos she has ever had.
If you are looking for excellent Italian cuisine, a menu with a fairly broad range of choices, a great wine list and an intimate setting, this is the place to go.
Excellent ... food + service ... as always !!
Nice small restaurant. Food is good and Will recommand
We always enjoy dining at Allegro! Delicious food, great ambiance and excellent service! Many great choices on the menu. The complementary bruschetta and warm bread is a great way to start your meal. Our favourite entree is the chicken parmesan, veal parmesan or the lamb shanks. Thank you to Tony and Marino for always making us feel welcome. Highly recommend this little gem on Preston.
