Allegro's menu reflects the best from Italian food

Allergo, as most of you know, is a musical term that means lively, and the restaurant rendition run smartly by Rico Ferri and Jack Menghisteab certainly lives up to its namesake. Allegro offers a completely separate concept with a warm, intimate restaurant featuring the best dishes. You can refer to our menus for a list of dishes available at Allegro.

Allegro Italian Kitchen has received rave reviews for its contemporary design, exceptional meals and all-around wonderful dining experience; In the summer, you can dine inside or out on the patio and savor one of many mouth-watering meals, including pasta, chicken, risotto and many more, and a selection of fine wines.

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 I had originally made reservations at another restaurant but changed it when the engagement happen to Allegro Downtown.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.

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.

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.

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!
