Today was my 5 year anniversary with my soon to be husband. My anniversary dinner turned into an engagement when my hubby asked me to marry him this morning making this one of the best days of my life. I had originally made reservations at another restaurant but changed it when the engagement happen to Allegro Downtown. I did this because this is where we had our first date. Celebrated the news of our two child at this restaurant and have had every other anniversary dinner at. We have never had bad service until this evening, the food has always been exceptional. Tonight we got neither. We had to wait for the waiter to take our drink order, the waiter seemed distracted and the food was not up to par. I had the sea bass it was filled with bones. I had one in the first fillet and as soon as I took my first bite of the second there was three. I think what bugged me more was that when the waiter came to ask how our food was, I pointed out the bones. He said sorry and walked away. I didn’t finish my plate, that has never happened. All in all very disappointing performance tonight.
I’m usually not a negative person but the meals we had were not good. I had the salmon it was very over cooked and dry, another meal was too salty the lady could not eat it. Our dinner companions were missionaries from Haiti and do not get out for meals very often so I was really disappointed.
Best Italian in Edmonton. Hands down. Fantastic owner and waiters.
Wait staff was good and kept us 4 people somewhat entertained. We were seated in the back room as there was a large party that appeared to have the entire main seating area. Service was a bit slow on this account- the large group definitely had priority. Food was decent, nothing overly exceptional. There are better Italian restaurants priced around the same within the city.
Allegro is very comfortable and food is comforting. Service excellent.
We were in the mood for some Italian food and my wife and I were not disappointed. We were warmly welcomed and once the wine arrived we enjoyed some bread with balsamic and olive oil.
My wife ordered the Linguine with seafood and I enjoyed the cannelloni. The portions were substantial and the food was delicious. I will certainly be coming back.
Food was very good. Ambience and atmosphere was blah.
Probably one of the best Caeser salads in the city. Nice menu. Good food. Real parmesan!
Was nice to experience Allegro again after many years. We just happened to find a night when it wasn't busy and had the place to ourselves. We'd go again, the food was awesome and the atmosphere was appropriate and location convenient.
Nice meal in a friendly setting. Waitress was excellent and very participatory in making our evening great.
We had tried Allegro for lunch and enjoyed it so booked an early dinner on a Wednesday. Not very busy, but service was friendly and efficient (if a little brusque) and the food was good and plentiful.
Our group went to Allegro Italian Kitchen for a department Christmas dinner. The waiter greeted us at the door and took us to our table. He had a fabulous attitude and wonderful humour that we all appreciated. The food came out hot for all 7 people and tasted wonderful! They don't have lasgne on the menu for dinner, but they do make it fresh for lunch. Fortunately there was a piece left from lunch that had not been sold, so everyone got the meal they requested. It would be nice to see this option on the dinner menu. Prices are fair and the portions are the perfect size for a dinner meal. Would recommend this place to anyone!
Very good dinning experience and food! Would go back!
Awesome food and service
Amazing Italian....best I've ever had, even when I include eating in Europe. The owner and staff are so friendly you can tell they really enjoy their work. Atmosphere is comfortable and classy.
The food was very flavorful and the wait staff were attentive and very pleasant.
Always a good voice for a neighbourhood restaurant.
Sunday evening 6:30 reserve for 4 for 10th wedding anniversary ( not really needed. Food was tasty and very generous portions, limited wine list, service was friendly but sporadic..1 server , 6 tables..
We would go back again.. maybe just for casual supper.
The server was attentive enough with some humor and genuity, while still allowing us to enjoy our date night. The food was unbelievable especially the prosciutto appetizer, the zitti con pollo, and the chocolate cake! Their house red wine is sweet but subtle.
A quaint restaurant south of Jasper Avenue - with excellent service, food and appearance throughout. I plan to return there again!
Excellent service. Menu selection was fabulous. Meal was delicious.
excellent meals for all of us in a open friendly environment.
Great service with even better food. Elegant food, with great portions and wonderful pricing. The flavours are incredible
Very nice - we had a lot of catching up to do and didn't feel rushed at all.
We would definitely go back next time we had the opportunity and do highly recommend this place to others. Our server was friendly and very attentive. Our group of 5 all thoroughly enjoyed each of our flavorful, delicious and well portioned dinners. Very apparent they used fresh vegetables and the fresh buns were a real treat.
If you like a creamy mushroom sauce this place has one of the best we've ever tasted.
A local friend from Edmonton says he frequents this place at lunch and it is consistently great food and service.
The restaurant was quiet on a Saturday evening, which made conversation easy. There is no loud music, kitchen noise, or other distractions. The wine list is short, but there are some reasonable options at reasonable prices. A caprese salad from multi-coloured fresh cherry tomatoes got our appetites up for more; it was beautifully presented and oh so tasty. My dinner special was a great combo of shrimp and chicken and pasta, definitely a plus if you can't make up your mind! Service was flawless. I would go back and I do recommend it for a quiet evening.
Great evening with family! Food was great - chef prepared something that wasn't on the menu (bruschetta) for appetizer and it was excellent. A great place with great service!
The Service was outstanding as well as the quality of the food. Our only complaint had nothing to do with the restaurant. Someone was drilling in the floor above in the office tower after hours. The waitress was very apologetic although it wasn't her fault.
Outstanding food and service!! Always a pleasure going for dinner there!!
