L'Allegria New York City reviews from OpenTable diners
  • Lovely setting, food fair
    NYCDiner
    Dined on 9/27/2013
    The setting is a bistro type with outdoor and indoor seating. Quite pleasant to sit outside or inside w a window seat. The service was excellent. Ample wait staff and very attentive. Food was fair. Good quality, fresh but somewhat flat in taste. Not a memorable dining experience.

    Came in from Philly to have dinner before going to see a Broadway musical. At first I was skeptical because the restaurant was not crowded like the neighboring establishments. Boy I was in for a surprise. The food was fresh and seasoned just right and the staff was great! Would definitely visit again.

    i took my mom here for an early mother's day celebration this past saturday. along with a cousin who is away from her kids and my niece who lost her mother 8 yrs ago. i wanted it a tad special. this place was not i had in mind. the waitress was not very helpful and didn't follow up with us. the entrees took more than 30 mins which is completely unacceptable. the restaurant looked better in the pictures. overall a bad experience. i do not recommend. i would never go back.

    I loved the pork shank osso bucco style, accompanied by risotto with dried fruits. Enough for two with moderate appetites. I'd go back again just for this dish.

    This midtown establishment always has wonderful Valentine's Day specials. Unfortunately, spacing is tight so on busy days such as Valentine's Day you can find yourself spending your special dinner elbow to elbow with the next group of patrons. Overall its definitely worth checking out.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 12/30/2012
    We liked L'Allegria very much. It is a nice little Italian restaurant with good food and a lively atmosphere. It's very close to the theater district, which made if very convenient for us. We were a party of three, and we arrived on time for our 6:15 reservation and were seated promptly. The service was leisurely yet attentive. We sampled three of the pasta dishes - each was prepared well and as described. The house Ravioli (Ravioli Della Casa) and the Penne with Grilled Chicken were both very good, and the Penne Pomodoro Basilico was good but a bit bland. The wine list is very basic with cheap Italian wines, but the one we ordered (Pinot Noir) was very drinkable. I will be returning to L'Allegria on our next trip to NYC.

    We went as a party of 5 for a pre-Broadway-show dinner. The food was excellent italian fare with multiple brick oven pizza choices to keep our 10 year old happy. We arrived prior to our reservation and were seated immediately. A party of 5 was at tight fit into one of the semi-circular booths. At first I thought it would be a problem, but, worked out well. The only other issue was that our table was right near the door... so when it opened we got a chill. The ambiance and energy made up for the occasional chill. The servers were good, polite and knowledgeable and the manager stopped by to check on dinner. So, overall we were very happy.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012

    The Maitre'D or whom ever was seating individuals, asked us if we had a reservation and we said yes with our name. The man (can not say gentleman as his behaviour Open Table to which he "harumphed" and said " you made those reservations this afternoon and I will not honor them because I told Open Table we had no more room. You need to leave." So my experience with L'Allegria was less than poor and we left as we were asked to "leave". Very rude and quite ignorant.

The steak was rather leathery....Even with the Groupon coupon, it was expensive....considering we could have eaten somewhere else for the same price. (total would have been considerably less) Lesson learned.

    We had a group of 13 people from all over the US and Canada meeting in NYC for a graduation. Many had not been to Manahattan before and none of us live in NY. I found L'Allegria in an OpenTable search. We had a very good dinner there. The alfredo sauce was the only disappointment. While we were there the noise level was "energetic" when we left it probably became more quiet. The service was friendly and good. We had a memorable dinner.

    The restaurant was nice. The wall was opened to the outside giving us the best of both worlds - inside and outside dining. The food was tasty but portions were rather small. The steak was thin but grilled nicely. The lobster ravioli could have used more lobster in the filling. Al in all we had a good time and will consider going again.

    Our 18 yr old and 3 friends (2 girls, 2 boys) dined here before seeing Chicago - an "all grown-up" experience of going into the city independently for a special night out they had been planning for months. For a nice pre-theater restaurant, the price was reasonable and they loved it. My son says the osso bucco was fantastic!
