Great timeWe celebrated our 40 wedding anniversary the waitress was outstanding and the food the best we had in Napa.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMDiner's DelightThis gem of a restaurant is one of my favorite dining places. Situated in an old bank building it has ambiance on steroids. The decor is beautiful and classic. The murals are lovely to look at and the lighting shows everything at its best.. The small upper balconies are a treat, and let you look down on the main dining floor. The old vault is a small and intimate private dining room. BUT!!! The food is ALWAYS presented like pieces of art. Presentation is a plus for my dining pleasure and ALLEGRIA does it to perfection. I often feel like taking a photo of my food. The wait staff are amazing and always remember you and your taste preferences. Situated in the shopping center of NAPA, it is a destination must when in that area.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMNever been disappointedHave dined here at least half a dozen times when attending concerts in the area. Every single visit has been superb. The prices are reasonable for notoriously overpriced Napa.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesomeThe food and wine were awesome. The staff was very friendly, and the bartender got rid of my hiccups in seconds!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat dinner in NapaWe had the homemade parpardelle pasta with shrimp and wild mushrooms, and it didn't disappoint! Highly recommended for a laid-back, delicious Italian meal.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMHostess had a bit of an attitude.Hostess had a bit of an attitude. When a couple asked if they could sit at a different table, she didn't say a word, just picked up the menus, threw them down on the other table and walked off. Even though the patio was fairly empty, she put us at a table that was in full sun. We just moved ourselves to a shadier table. Since it was a very slow night, I don't know why she didn't just ask people where they preferred to sit. All in all a good restaurant, though.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWe enjoyed everything aboutWe enjoyed everything about the restaurant. My only suggestion would be to allow a bit more room between tables. Since the restaurant was very busy the Sunday evening we dined, I understand the need for as many tables as possible.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food in downtown NapaDecided to try this restaurant which I found on OpenTable. Food was good, we had the Pappadelle and the Fruti di Mare. It was an absolutely hot day so we chose to sit outside which was very nicely shaded and made the dining experience even nicer. We went a bit early so by the time we finished eating is when the crowd started coming in. Looked like a good balance of tourists and locals.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place to eatWe had the Penne con Pollo and it was delicious. We also ordered the carpaccio, but I would stay away from that, it could have been better. Our service was great and we loved our entrees.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMA great Open Table find!I was traveling alone which is unusual. Didn't have a plan for dinner so I turned to Open Table and I was not disappointed. Great meal, great service, didn't feel uncomfortable sitting alone on a Friday night. Wonderful ambiance, good wine list an really nice people seated around me. I would gladly go back with my husband when we are in own together.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMCan't wait to stop by again!I made reservations for my partner and I on Monday Night (@6:30p.m.). Coming from out of town makes internet reviews unreliable in a sense that you're are never too sure about a restaurant because we all have our own specific preferences. Thankfully I found a gem and am beyond pleased with the outcome. Ristorante Allegria has incredibly fast service (note, it was also Memorial Day)! Our server (I believe her name was Tracy) was funny, gracious, kind, warm, knowledgable, and highly professional. She was the cherry to our Sundae. Thank you so much for this wonderful experience!5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMAll round excellent experience!Had my 30th Birthday lunch here with 9 other friends. Originally were set up outside but it became very windy and our guests were feeling cold. Within 15 minutes, they were able to set up tables inside and move our party. The waitress and staff were extremely accomodating and very nice. The food was really delicious. Each one of my guests really enjoyed their pastas and salads. My neice, who is 2, enjoyed the noodles :). Overall, the experience was great! food was delicious. Although you may not think to come here, Ristorante Allegria really surprised me in terms of their excellent service and really tasty food and I will definitely come back and also bring my guests.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMThere was 7 of us & got toThere was 7 of us & got to try everyone's food. All very good. Especially the lamb shank, fall off the bone tender. Finger licking good. Will definitely be going back.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMA great date-nite spotThe ambience is very romantic. Made us feel like we were on vacation. We had a difficult time deciding what to order for dinner because of the excellent choices The napa cabbage salad was one of the best salads we've had ever. Can't wait to go back !!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMTerrific ItalianMy wife and I both had pasta dishes and they were delicious. The restaurant is in an old First National Bank building in Napa with high ceilings and ceiling fans. It makes for a great atmosphere. Our server was friendly and attentive to our needs. The food and service made it a very pleasant place to dine. We recommend it.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMLocal Napa favoriteWe have been to Allegria many times over the years and it never disappoints. The crab cakes had a bit too much bread and not enough crab, but our pasta with shrimp was fantastic, as was the ceasar. Wine list/availability was fantastic and the patio seating was perfect.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMBravissimo!The very high ceiling adds a wonderful ambience to the Italian decor. It also adds a lot of noise. Except for that, Ristorante Allegria was great -- excellent food, presentation, service, and a menu that offers something for every palate. It's a popular restaurant, and deserves to be.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful neighborhood restaurantPrices moderate, food very good, excellent service. We like it a lot, and go there frequently.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGood stuff.The food was great and ambiance was god. A fun place to gather with friends for a nice meal.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat serviceOrdered the cheese tortellini special - very good. Service was excellent and we would return again5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day dinnerWe went to Ristorante Allegria with my mom & sister. We had a great time. Food was great as always & our service was fantastic & friendly too. Thought it might be really crowded & noisy but it wasn't. Probably the most difficult part was parking...most likely due to Bottle Rock attendees parking downtown.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Finish to a Wonderful DayAfter a day of wine tasting we had reservations for Mother's Day. Our party of eight ordered 3 appeitizers a variety of entrees. The calamari was tender, and mushroom dish was fabulous.
The lamb over a cheesy polenta was good. The pesto gnocchi was really good. The quinoa pasta was suggested for a gluten-sensitive niece, and was delicious. The pork tenderloin was the only dish out of eight that missed. It was dry and over-done.
For the finale we shared 3 desserts. The brownie sundae was warm and decadent, the apple berry fruit crisp was just that, warm and crispy. Mixed reviews on the lavender and orange creme brulee, but at least two in our party loved it.
Good food, service and nice place. My family agreed it was a good pick.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful Evening - PERFECT!Loved everything about the restaurant - the ambiance, service and the food/drinks. We sat downstairs, which has amazing ambiance. We noticed those in shorts and who were less well-dressed were seated on the second floor (which I am guessing is not as nice as downstairs).5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome experiencedinner with another couple was a surprise treat as the quality of both the food and the service were fantastic. Had not heard much so were very pleased.

The appetizer sampler is a good deal. The food was good and tasted very fresh but overall nothing special.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWas not disappointed!Allegria Sampler to start and everything on there was wonderful. For entrees the Wild Mushroom Raviolis & Pappardelle Allo Zafferano (both homemade, cooked & done very well!), Marinated Grilled Teriyaki Skirt Steak very good, and fish of the day which was salmon. Salmon was cooked well, but the portion seemed a bit small. Definitely would come back and recommend!! Our server was great too!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThe positive reviews we readThe positive reviews we read prior to making our reservation were spot-on. Great food and reasonably priced.

It was the best restaurant experience we had in the Napa area. The food was simply delicious, and extremely reasonably priced! Portions were generous and the service was swift, very welcoming and knowledgable. The restaurant itself is beautiful with its high ceilings and elegant but relaxed ambience. We simply loved it and will definitely return when we're back in Napa!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMI chose the restaurant forI chose the restaurant for the gnocchi, and they didn't disappoint. We were in a quiet upper room, but if you have a preference on the kind of vibe you want, make sure you tell the restaurant in advance. We didn't care, so it worked out well for us. My hubby liked the bruschetta, but I didn't. That just meant more for him and more room for dessert for me. We'll be back the next time we're in town.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMLove me some Allegria!Outstanding as always. Ristorante Allegria can be overshadowed by the influx of new restaurants to the area, but it is a hidden gem that shouldn't be missed.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding Italian food.Outstanding Italian food.
