    We always eat here for dinner when in Napa, but this was our first lunchtime visit and it didn't disappoint. The food was delicious as always and our wonderful server Maxsimo made the last meal of the last day of our trip very special. We look forward to our next trip and having both lunch and dinner at Ristorante Allegria.

    It was a releif to finally see a wine list that recognized that you can get a great bottle of wine in Napa and not pay $60. They had quit a few really good wines in the $30-40 range.

    We live in Atlanta - a city known for wonderful restaurants - but when we plan a trip to Napa we always make a reservation (or two) at this wonderful restaurant. We love everything about it - food, wine, service - and have never been disappointed. We look forward to many more visits to this special place!

    PAfter walking the downtown area of Napa that was recently hit by the earthquake, we returned to a favorite of locals and tourists alike, Allegria. They took us early on a Thursday evening and the food was fantastic. We shared a yummy tender skirt steak satay following it with perfectly prepared pasta dishes: the wild mushroom ravioli and the PAPPARDELLE ALLO ZAFFERANO; fresh Homemade Saffron Pasta, Jumbo Prawns, Wild Mushrooms, Artichoke Hearts, Finished With Roasted Shrimp Bisque. Absolutely delicious. My husband ordered the bread pudding for dessert and said it was the best he ever had. Don't be put off by the scaffolding at the entrance. It's beautiful inside this old bank built after the '06 quake.

    Have been here before for dinner twice and loved it. Went with friends for lunch and we all thoroughly enjoyed this restaurant. Our food was fabulous and included the wild mushroom raviolis, gnocchis, and pappardelle with prawns. Service was excellent. Will definitely go back again. We chose to sit inside because earthquake repair work was being done on the outside of the building, but they do have nice patio seating for a future time.

    The food was delicious; however, with the music so loud, I believe guests had to be loud as well to hear each other which, unfortunately, lead to a very loud environment. So great place to eat if you don't mind the energetic vibe.

    We are frequent visitors at this restaurant. We took our son visiting from L.A. and he loved it saying everything was delicious and perfect. We had the Skirt Satay appetizers along with the Ceasar Salad. Both were excellent! We then enjoyed Veal Piccata and Rigatoni and both were very good. As many times as we have been here , we have never tried the Bread Pudding desert until now and this was the best bread pudding we ever had. No doubt, this will be our desert of choice in the future. Bon Appetite!

    Truly a local favorite. Allegria manages to provide consistent quality at a very reasonable price. We've come here 6 times and have not been disappointed. To our pleasant surprise, the veal was exceptional. The pastas have always been very good and if you want your salmon "rare", they get it right!

    We live in Napa and want to support local business. We were concerned that the earth quake and scaffolding for repairs might be turning visitors off. Not the case, they were very busy. The main dining room is on the loud side so we asked the server and they moved us upstairs to a much quieter space. Their take on olive oil for dipping is outstanding and we bought a mason jar to take home.

    I treated a dear friend to a birthday dinner last Thursday and after a sputtering beginning, (wait person, hostess and our table were not coordinated)all was corrected when I raised my hand high toward the hostess station. From that point onward, service and meal proved to be very good and a fun evening for us. Would be happy to recommend this restaurant for casual or special dinning. Thank you one and all.

We had the Napa salad that was very good and a special salad of fried green tomatoes that was excellent. We find the food and the service are always top rate at this restaurant. Highly recommended!

    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.
