Allegria Ratings and Reviews
Best restaurant in the valley in my opinion. Small, intimate Italian that reminds me of some of the gems in the North End of Boston or Little Italy in Manhattan. The mussels in cream broth were outstanding, the wine list if excellent as is the signature cocktail list. I had a standard carbonara with fresh pasta that was excellent but my date's veal piccata was out of this world. And the bread. Don't eat too much of it as it can spoil your meal as it is delectable. Cannot recommend this place enough.
Made a reservation thru Open Table. Was told your seats at the bar were ready. I did not make a reservation for the bar. The staff was able to accommodate us at a table after a short wait. Our food was really just average. My husband ordered the eggplant parmigiana. More spinach than eggplant . I ordered the steak frites. Steak was cooked to my medium rare request and was tasty. The frites however were very disappointing. Soggy at best. This is a fine dining restaurant. It was quite busy and the waitstaff was accommodating however we were disappointed in our meals. We have dined here in the past and the food was very good. Maybe an off night? Have to say the overall experience was not the best.
Jede Meile Wert!
Waren zum Skifahren in Aspen und sind auf Empfehlung erstmalig dieses Jahr ins Allegria gefahern.
Das Essen war ein Genuss, insbesondere das Beef Tatar als Vorspeise ist ein Hochgenuss. Eine bessere Cioppino (als Hauptgericht) habe ich noch nicht gegessen, um so beachtenswerter der dafür sehr günstige Preis.
Jede gefahrene Meile von Aspen nach Carbondale hat sich mehr als gelohnt.
Aus diesem Grund hat uns der Weg zu einem einmaligen Dinner auch ein zweites Mal in dieser Woche ins Allegria geführt.
Dining at Allegria is always special. Cozy, eclectic ambiance, surprising food flavors and pairings, great service. Love the Butternut Squash Ravioli in Cream Sauce with shaved Brussels Sprouts. Braised Short Ribs incredible when a menu special. A welcoming dining experience in the artsy small town of Carbondale.
We cannot express how impressed we were with Allegria. We stayed at the Marble Distillary, (amazing design) we were delivering high end furniture to a client in Aspen the next day. We were disappointed to find out the the restaurant Town had closed, we were considering driving the Basalt for dinner but we had our Mercedes Van, and we wanted to walk to a restaurant. I searched the local restaurants looking for a chef owned locally sourced restaurant.We were not sure if we wanted pasta, but I read the reviews and they were all 5 star. The food, flavors, mix of ingredients was some of the best we have ever experienced. We have a showroom in the RINO area of Denver and we are surrounded by amazing restaurants but Allegria had it all, a warm cozy atmosphere, great service and extremely reasonable prices. I had Salmon which was perfectly seared in top of delightful light sauce with clams, shrimp and asparagus. My husband had the short rib served atop a rigatoni with light cream /truffle sauce , fresh spinach also a few pieces of shrimp. How generous they are with the ingredients. This was on Sunday night and we are still reliving the flavors in our memory. We cannot wait to return to Carbondale, stay at the Marble Inn for a few days for biking and eat every chance we get at Allegria
We love your restaurant. Everything is great with the one exception of very poor acoustics. When you go out to dinner to talk with friends, you should be able to do that without raising your voice to be heard.
Please consider some decor that might help solve this problem. Thanks.
The only advice I would offer Allegria would be to double check reservation dates: I put in a reservation a week before the date my friend and I dined and I received a call about the reservation a week early, which I did not have time to respond to as I was very busy that weekend. Otherwise, the service, ambiance, and meal we had was fantastic and I would absolutely recommend Allegria to anyone visiting Carbondale for a few days or weekend.
Great for a mid week friends get together dinner. Plenty of variety in the drinks menu, appetizer/small meal menu and dinner/salads/sides selections to please a variety of diet restrictions and palates. Special and regular menu choices were all delicious. The server created a special dessert with multiple selections for us to pass and share-all yummy and seasonal. Very enjoyable evening. Somewhat pricey but more special than our normal gathering spots. Outdoor seating if desired, is on a raised deck, just above/off the main street thru our small town. Great for people watching and local color (used on a different occasion).
Old family friends visited from AZ. Both are foodies, and immediately we thought of Allegria as one of Carbondale's gems! They loved our new town on a summer evening. Inside can be noisy for those with impaired hearing, so our location outside was perfect! Great friendly, knowledgeable service.
The service was wonderful and staff very friendly. While they didn't have an official kids menu a server immediately offered up some options and produced crayons and told my kiddo to draw away on the table cloth (paper) which she loved. The drinks and appetizer were amazing, we were a little let down in the entrees (I got seafood lasagna which was a bit fishy and was sitting in a pool of liquid and hubby got chicken parmesan which the noodles were way overcooked). Plus the portions were a bit small for the price. But, overall this was a charming place and I'd definitely go back and try something else!
We came for dinner and they easily accommodated a vegetarian even though nearly every menu item contains meat. The food was very good, and it was fun to meet the chef, Andreas. The service was inconsistent, as it took forever for rolls to arrive and then the main course arrived quickly after that. The wine selection is very good, the drink specials are creative, the food was very tasty, and I thought the prices were fair.
We went to dinner here on the basis of a glowing review from a relative. We were disappointed. Service was very good, our server was friendly and helpful. We shared a special salad which included grilled peaches and this was very good. We both ordered Veal Piccata and were very disappointed. Most importantly, this was NOT Veal Piccata which we know well. The veal was fairly tasteless and was served over a bed of spinach fettucine and tomatoes...not a classic serving. What was most astonishing was that the veal was virtually swimming in broth, so the breading on the veal was all soggy and mushy. I don't mind people inventing their own dishes, but don't call it by a classic name. Overall, we would not return.
The chef clearly takes a lot of pride in the food that he serves. Every time I have been there he is the first one to greet you, and the last one to say goodbye. They care a lot about the quality of their food and support local farmers and ranchers by serving local ingredients. The service is always outstanding and the restaurant has a comfortable atmosphere.
Allegria has been a favorite of our family since moving to the Carbondale area several years ago. The menu is varied and offers exceptional seasonal delicacies as well as wonderful daily fare. My favorite is their chicken piccata. Andreas and his staff make you feel right at home.
Wonderful food as usual. Just need to remember that portions are generous! Appetizer and main both lead to taking some home. Only thing - booths are tight and hard to maneuver in and out - how about leather seats. Schnitzel excellent. Cioppino got a rave review from our friend. We celebrated our anniversary and got greetings for that.
Hardly any restaurant in the Valley can hold on to service help long enough to train them well, due to all the seasonal turnover. So we look past the terrible service by our novice server, and concentrate on the wonderful menu and food. This may be, other than service, the best food in Carbondale. Very generous portions, nicely presented, with interesting seasonal specialties and locally-sourced product. Very reasonably priced wines.
We always experience and appreciate the warmth and attention of the great chef owner, the friendly service and the efficiency of the family run business in the downtown athmosphare of Carbondale in the Aspen Valley.
The food is continuously excellent from the healthy local selection of the Ingredients to the master preparation and presentation.
It's always worthwhile to travel there.
Allegria has a great menu, Italian with some German influence, lots of local ingredients, kits of protein choices. Yet a Vegetarian would be happy too and in fact, one of our party is vegan and the chef created a dish for him! We always have fun and the food is fabulous!
Wonderful overall. Great service, attentive and knowledgeable. However, they continue to be having trouble getting the coating consistent on the veal schnitzel - which on every occasion but this one and the last time I ordered it. My husband had it on our last visit, it was perfect. Breading was fine and on the order of a great schnitzel. My problem was the breading was not finely chopped and was soggy. I will request to see the coating before I order this again. When it is done right - it is fantastic. Everyone else had raves about their meals.
We love Allegria! The owner is very involved in every aspect of the restaurant and makes the diners feel at home. The food is absolutely delicious - from the yummy rolls that come with the meal to the wonderful salads and pastas all the way to the innovative desserts. I had the Spaghetti Carbonara (with green peas) - my favorite! My husband had the Spaghetti with clams and loved every bite! We shared the crepes with cherries and it was delectable. When we visit Carbondale, we always dine at Allegria!!
