Allegro Italian Kitchen - Downtown Ratings and Reviews
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
Food was good. Very disappointed in the dessert. We went for the Downtown Dining Week and I had the $45 three course meal. Appetizer and meal were good, but nothing special. For dessert, it was suppose to be a limoncello cream cheese custard. Instead, I saw them pull out a President's Choice box with mini cheesecakes. They added whipped cream and chocolate sauce. To say the least, it was not that great. Very disappointed that they don't make their own dessert and completely mark up the price of something I could get at Superstore for $5. FYI, the boxes are in plain site and there were quite a few of them.
My friend and I went there as a get together before a concert. It happened to be downtown dining week so we lucked out with a three course meal for $28.00. That was a great value because the restaurant is on the pricey side. Great food and service. We had to leave early so we missed the piano player. I would definitely recommend this place.
