    Been to Allegria several times, so figured I'd take the GF here for dinner. We were in town with friends, and the hostest was quick to set up a table for 4 even though our reservation was only for 2. Seated promptly, quick service, and as always, the food was great. Got the Mahi Mahi special, which was good, but not as good as the filet that I usually order. Oh well. Great spot for a romantic dinner for 2 or a group of friends getting together.

    I thought that the food was very good, I enjoyed the Saffron pasta with the shrimp and the flavor was outstanding, we also shared the sampler appetizer which we both enjoyed. Was a little disappointed with my cocktail, Hendricks gimlet, and they used a lot of Roses lime juice as opposed to fresh lime and a splash of simple syrup. Although the bar had a great selection, it seemed that all of their signature cocktails were vodka based, would have like a little more variety. We were in a very quiet room upstairs, which was pleasant for our anniversary, but the real action is in the main room downstairs. A little louder, but very lively.

    Our favorite restaurant! The food is always outstanding and the service is geat. This is our favorite destination as we have never been disappointed here. We shared a grilled chicken dsalad with an order of crabcakes and an order of skirt steak satay. Everything was delicious and beautifully presented. Incidentally, the chicken salad was very generous considering we shared the dish. The patio is so nice for lunch! If you choose to have dinner here, do try the papardella, but whatever you choose, I don't think you can go wrong here.

  • Mediocre Dinner a Allegria

    Dined on 8/14/2014
    We had an early dinner at Allegria in Napa CA on Thursday, August 14. The service was good but the food was not as good as we had hoped. One of us had chicken and the other the spaghetti with meat sauce. The chicken was overly greasy and the spaghetti was not so good sauce on ground hamburger and pasta. The hamburger was very plain and for an alleged "Italian Restaurant", it was more like an American restaurant with plain food than what you would expect from a fine Italian Restaurant.

    We've always loved Allegria, but this night I was disappointed. I ordered the swordfish, which the waitress said they cooked "medium." I said great. When it came, however, it was way overcooked - dry. I probably should have sent it back but hate making a fuss. I did tell the waitress. One friend, who is a vegetarian, asked for pasta with a tomato based sauce. It was not up to the usual standard either. It overwhelmed the pasta.

    The food was good at Allegria but the pace of the meal was ridiculously fast. The calamari appetizer was out before we had a chance to enjoy the wine and the main course was served with the unfinished appetizer still on the table. We had to tell the server when we completed the meal to give us some time to finish our wine before even thinking about dessert. Nonetheless, the menus were presented as if the place was on fire. Not a very relaxing meal!

    We dine at Allegria as often as we can. We enjoy the white table cloths, linen napkins, impeccable service and beautiful surroundings. Our waiter has always been friendly, attentive and helpful. You begin your experience with thick crusted sliced sourdough coupled with Allegria's own dipping sauce. The lunch box and daily specials are superb. The lunch box specials include salad or soup as well as home made sorbet for dessert. Tough to beat for a mere $15. The marinated skirt steak is the best I have ever had. The skirt steak is presented with garlic mashed potatoes, fresh vegetables and lightly pan fried onion rings. I have sent quite a few friends and business contacts to Allegria and the reviews are always "We loved it!"

    The restaurant is actually delightful, outdoors dining area had a nice ambiance. The waitress said she would bring us "just a taste" of their special soup, then forgot, then when she delivered the meal said once again she would bring it then after the meal apologized for not bringing it. The tagatelli was under cooked and some of the needles were stuck together and dey. Not a great experience.

    My three adult children and I had a very nice early dinner after a day in Napa Valley. Our waitress was outstanding - vibrant, funny and always there when we needed her. We arrived at the bar prior to 4:30 p.m. and had appetizers at the bar, not realizing that the bar tender would provide a very nice free appetizer, but that was ok - we ate it all! We sat down to eat at 4:30 and had a wonderful dinner. Since it was so early, it was hard to tell what the restaurant would be like in the evening, but I suspect that it could be a very romantic setting. It is fairly small, housed in an old bank, which was quite interesting to my bank employee daughter.

    Four of us dined here Friday night. Reservations are a must and we were glad we had them. The food was good - especially the bread's dipping sauce. The sampler app was delicious - most notable was the skirt steak skewers, which were flavorful and tender. Service was decent - nothing to complain about. The chocolate gelato wasn't as good as we had in Italy. The restaurant is in a building that used to be a bank, complete with vault. The decor was interesting (overhead lights looked like large, bloodshot eyes), and the ambiance was lively.

    Hello....I do love your food, however Kenneth was off that night....we received our salads right away....mine had very little blue cheese and little dressing, and should have asked for more, so my fault....but it took 40 minutes to receive the entrees, which were just "appetizers" ....had to constantly ask for more water...quite warm in the restaurant, however it was warm outside. There were two groups that came in after us, and received their entrée. Kenneth said it was because of the salads, but we didn't see him for at least 20 minutes....the skirt steak was awesome, and was my friends fried calamari.

    I took my very dear friend for dinner here for her Bachelorette dinner while enjoying a weekend away in Napa. We were disappointed by our meals, they were not that flavorful. I had the mushroom ravioli's and she had the stuffed chicken. Some of the ravioli's were undercooked and I didn't get a lot of mushroom flavor which I prefer. My friend said her chicken was so so and the mashed potatoes weren't up to her standards. I will say the service was good, except they forgot to bring our bread, but the water was replenished in a timely manner. I did like the décor and energy in the restaurant and you can have a conversation easily. I would chose another restaurant next time I go to Napa.

    I was booked for a concert in Napa - this was our before concert restaurant. The first experience was great. Service when you get there is slow - but great after that. Food is excellent. This time we tried dessert. Wonderful - we had the sundae - no cheap ice cream there :-). When in Napa this is my favorite place. Be sure to book a reservation - many customers in line.

    We decided to have an Italian dinner before attending a concert nearby. The restaurant was crowded and busy even with our early reservation. We got a nice table, shared the sampler appetizer and baby arugula salad (both delicious), drank excellent wines by the glass, and enjoyed wonderful pasta entrees - the saffron paparadella (flat noodles, prawns, etc.) was just wonderful; and the mushroom ravioli sounds pedestrian, but was just about perfect. We were in and out in about 90 minutes. Great, attentive service, reasonable price, and right downtown Napa. This won't be the most elegant restaurant you've ever tried, but it will be fun with good food and good service. We shall return!
