    When I made the note of making this night special due to my husband & I celebrating our anniversary, they went above my expectations. Seated us in a corner booth, served us complimentary appetizers, then with our dessert they served us complementary glasses of prosecco. We will be returning next year!!

    We had taken the trolley all day to 4 wineries in Napa. This was our first time in Napa. We found Restorante Allegria on Trip Advisor and on our tour, there were 2 locals who highly recommended it to us. Our server was Kenneth. He took great care of us. We had an appetizer of risotto cakes, which were amazing. We both ordered ravioli, one was special of the day. Ingredients were fresh and showcased local food specialties. The wine list was comprehensive for our tastes and I enjoyed a crisp glass of Pinot Grigio. We did have a reservation on a Thursday night, but this did not appear to be necessary. The ambiance was unique and romantic, a perfect end to a beautiful day in the vineyards ! We will definitely be back when we return :) !!!

    The title about sums it up. The good was good and the price was fair. Moderate serving size. The service was fast and the food came out super fast. We almost felt rushed. We literally just sat when bread and water arrived. Our food also came out within five minutes of ordering. I couldn't really tell you about the ambience because we weren't there long enough to notice.

    I do not know how this Italian establishment received the excellent marks, because the food was very average and almost tasted as if prepared out of a Cisco truck. The place is loud and cramped where large groups take over the ambiance of your dinner. I had the chicken & pasta & the protein was very dry & poorly seasoned.

    Great service, from entering the restaurant, through service, and leaving. Was very noisy, even though there was not a lot of people. Had the sampler and a Caesar salad - after wine tasting all day, we were not too hungry. The only complaint I have is that the piece of bruschetta that I had was overly soggy from the tomato mix that was placed on top. It may gave been sitting too long before bringing to tha table. Nice surprise for my wife was the addition of tempura asparagus that was added. As I don't eat it, she got too have it all - if I was on my own, this would have been a waste. I would recommend this restaurant to others.

    I'm a Napa local, and always enjoy this restaurant. Food is outstanding and the service is great. Bread pudding is to die for. Absolutely love. I work at a local hotel & refer our guests here all the time. Took my mother here for her birthday this weekend and had incredible service. Trevor was our waiter, he was very attentive. When he noticed I didn't finish my meal, he wanted to make sure everything was okay. It was delicious, I was just saving room for dessert. Thank you for great service & always a divine meal.

    wouldn't recommend it. Bad service, took 3 visits from the waiter to get water. No refills were ever offered once we got drinks. Got the cabbage salad but it was warm. Unexpected since not in the menu that way. Calamari came w/tempura asparagus and green beans; felt more like a tempura plate than antipasti. Main course, veal was good. Gnocchi was gummy, kept sticking to my teeth. Waiter said, "yeah that's how we cook OUR gnocchi. We prepare it differently." There's no mention of this on the menu or when ordering, so it's not "different" so much as "poorly prepared." No offer to comp it. Didn't offer dessert but that was probably bc my husband got his wallet out. The decor does match at least their food/service: inconsistent and random.

    I have said it before but you just can't go wrong at this restaurant. The food, service, and ambience are outstanding. I recently reserved the Chardonnay Room for a party of 21 (my wife's birthday) and I just can't say enough about the food and the service. Everyone at our party remarked very favorably concerning the quality of the food that was served (filet mignon, salmon, chicken and pappardelle). Many people commented on how good the filet mignon was ( I had my favorite-papardelle-always outstanding) so I returned this visit for the filet. It was very good served with a wine reduction on a bed of mashed potatoes and asparagus. I also hasd the arugula insalata. I just am not disapointed at this restaurant and highly recommend it.

    Went here at the suggestion of the Napa hotel we were staying at. We were not too hungry so ordered an entre each and a bottle of wine. The wine arrived within a few minutes and the food about a minute later. Our waiter feigned surprise but no one made an effort to correct the situation. We told them to take the food back which no one seemed happy about. We were left wondering what type of food prep allowed for such rapid deployment. Later the waiter explained that they were trying to get us served before a large party to avoid delaying us. The "large party" must have also eaten all the bread in the house because the replenishment of our basket looked like it had just come from the supermarket. Nothing about this place stood out.

    Was expecting great things based on hotel recommendation. Pineapple martini way too strong, bread and dipping option was wonderful, arugula salad (we split one and that was puente) was also really good. My pasta dinner, their specialty, was better than average, but pasta itself fairly bland. My dining partner had chicken which he really liked. We were supposed to get a free appetizer, but didn't....no offer to exchange out for free dessert or other concession, which was disappointing. Had blackberry/Cabernet sorbet...way overpriced.

    Allegria is a local favorite. It's typically pretty busy but very attentive. Great bar drinks. My wife loves the veal piccata; she also loves a blood orange martini before wine. All of the pasta dishes are great. Napa Cabbage salad is excellent as is the Cesar. The wine prices are reasonable and consists of local, other California and some imports (nice Italian selection). Dessert - if you can handle the bread pudding, it's outstanding.

    Allegria was a restaurant that was recommended very highly to us by some friends. We have eaten there twice now and both times everyone in our party thought it was "just OK". Food was average, service was less than average, noise level was fine and the ambience was OK. If you want something special, this is not the place. If you want average Italian food and a place to get a dinner, this is OK I guess. Probably won't be back for some time. Too many other fine food places in Napa and the Valley to choose from.

    We showed up for an early dinner, and got excellent service. The food is always good at Allegria - I have been there numerous times, and always bring guests when we go wine tasting. The Filet Mignon is exquisite and don't leave without trying the bread pudding (and maybe a little ice cream on the top). Both dishes melt in your mouth, and are so tasty. I would highly recommend this restaurant for any meal at any time. Reservations are always a good idea.

    Had the teriyaki skirt steak and it was delicious. It's a beautiful building, an old bank, remodeled invitingly. Only get a booth if there's just the two of you or you're sitting next to someone with small shoulders. We had a party of four and we all tried each others food. The pastas were the best, homemade and perfectly al dente. Everything was really good. The service was attentive , but not hovering, excellent. With appetizers , a bottle of wine and tip it ended up being about $40 a person, not bad for a really good meal. I would definitely go back and skip the appetizers. The soup and salads looked good.

    First time here. 6PM reservation on Saturday night, seated right away. One pet peeve is tiny little tables, and this place had good sized tables so there isn't constant shuffling of plates to make room for something else. We had drinks, nice, crab cakes, very very good, I had the lamb shank, my girlfriend the filet, both very good, cooked to order. Our server, Dacil, was delightful and entertaining. She took great care of us. When asked if everything was ok, I'm always honest and mentioned the polenta was fantastic and I could use a little more and she brought a small side and a little more of the lovely reduction to flavor it all. We brought wine so I didn't really look over the wine list. The bread pudding was awesome.

    We enjoyed our meal here. The grilled asparagus was perfectly cooked, the pasta dishes were satisfying. Our only disappointment was with the cocktails. We should have chosen from the wine list instead. I don't know if the gelato is made in house, but it was so creamy and delicious. We'll try this restaurant again.

    Allegria is a local favorite for a reason. I often wonder why how two brothers who are not Italian and do not have a "name" chef can turn out such consistently excellent meals. The salmon was perfect and the Portobello mushroom appetizer was exceptional. And the prices are very reasonable.

    I love this restaurant. The service is excellent, the wine list is excellent, and the food is excellent. It's in an old bank building, and has an old-world, solid feel to it. For small parties you can reserve the "vault room" for a unique experience. On our most recent visit I had the POLLO RIPIENO, which was absolutely delicious. The outside of the chicken was golden brown and lightly crunchy, and the meat was moist and juicy. The sauce was incredible. The dip for the bread is very unique and delicious.

    Overall great food and service. Nice atmosphere in a historic building however acoustics were awful and it was so loud that it was hard to have a conversation across the table. We would eat here again because the food and service was so good but maybe better for lunch instead of dinner with the bar scene noise.
