L'allegria, conceived by brothers Saverio and Giovanni Allocca in 1984, experienced a meteoric rise to stardom. It has maintained its lofty status due to the Allocca's dedication to optimum quality. The fashionable ristorante, with the casual feel of al fresco dining in a Mediterranean courtyard, features proficient, unpretentious European-style service, an award-winning wine cellar and a New York City trained kitchen staff. The delicate blend of exquisite renditions of authentic cuisine and wines from Italy's diverse regions, coupled with L'allegria's charming ambiance, create the quintessential Italian dining experience. As a result, L'allegria consistently wins the acclaim of restaurant critics and the applause of diners.

Food was mostly good, only 1 entree of 4 was not good. Service was terrible. Hardly saw our waitress. We were never told what the specials were, where the menus were. Sat for 20 minutes before anyone paid attention to us. Waited 30 more minutes for appetizers, then 30 more minutes for entrees. Had to request for bread and water, this should just be offered. Spent over 2 hrs for dinner without dessert as we just didn't want to stay any longer.

Haven't been here in years and decided to try it again. Just as good as I remembered. Authentic Italian restaurant. Nice specials. Everything we ordered was delicious. Bartender makes a good Apple Martini!

Food was good quality, not the portions I was expecting for the price, ( two small potato pieces with my chicken)
compared to other area restaurants. Needs a face lift.

We had a 7:15 reservation last saturday night / got there on time. Hostess said 10 minute wait. At 7:35 asked again. Told 10 minutes more. At 7:45 asked again- told 10 minutes more but pushed for "honest" answer which came back "not sure". Seated a little after 8.
Bread came - went to pour the oil and the top of the oil "container" came off - the oil spilled thankfully only totally filling the bread plate. Told the waiter- who said - " oh, that has happened before!".
The service is slow - the people there are very nice. Pasta is very good. The wild boar over risotto was mediocre.
They need to figure their scheduling. Seating reservations 45 minutes late is not acceptable.

We had a great meal here! It was not crowded when we were there, although it’s unclear why because the service and food were top notch. I’d recommend this place to anyone looking for good Italian food!

I made a reservation on open table and left a comment that I was there celebrating my parents 40th anniversary. When we got to the restaurant, it had our name in the reservation book and what we were celebrating. The entire night went and not one person said happy anniversary or acknowledged the occasion. After saying something to the waiter they still did nothing.....didn’t even offer us anything. The food was eh and it’s very pricey. I cannot believe an upscale restaurant would act in this manor.

The worst dining experience I've had in years. Food took over 2 hours to arrive. Server only checked once with us to ask if we wanted dessert, and we had not received our entrees yet. They were totally disorganized. We left after 3 hours, 15 minutes. Food was bland and tasteless.
They tried to make amends by buying each of us a glass of wine and offered free dessert, but by then we were thoroughly disgusted.

We went out for my husbands birthday. The food was excellent but my fish portion was small. The service was slow for an empty restaurant. It was a 1000 points promotion for that evening. It was a problem to receive my points due to incompatible computers Eventually I received it,

Old-school continental cuisine restaurant. Professional, personable,courteous wait staff can’t compensate for the mediocre food at premium prices. We won’t be going back.
