Food was AMAZING and the service was superb! Our server (Richie) took the time to make the experience enjoyable- offered recommendations based on our likes. Split the meals into various plates and offered up the best wine. 5+++ stars!
Food & service great, love the tableside Caeser salad preparation, roll up digestive cart & off the chart personality of the hosts
Wonderful little gem in mid-town! Superb Italian - "You'd better believe it!!"
Last night in NYC after a two month visit! Allora is a really nice Italian Restaurant with good food and a super good wait staff.... Complimentary Grappa or Lemoncello to end the night!
Ok joint a little touristy and less genuine for a NYC Italian restaurant
Greeted promptly. Amazing staff with everyone contributing to the experience. Food, wine, and dessert was delicious. Very satisfied with our experience.
We had a fabulous experience at Allora on Christmas night. Fadil went out of his way to treat us like family. The food is fresh and outstanding. Service was excellent. We really enjoyed the complimentary Parmesan, salami and hot peppers as well. Highly recommend dining at Allora.
As I tell Elio and Frankie, if i am not at Allora for dinner i am not in NY. The absolute best food and the best guys in town. They truly make it special at Allora.
We arrived 30 minutes early and they were happy to accommodate us. We had a delicious meal, with great service.
Will definitely return.
Excellent service food and Elio makes you feel special. Best Italian n midtown ! You will love . They have the longest pasta 🍝 in the world :)
The staff was unbelievable. We went back for breakfast 3 days and felt like family.
Nous avions réticences quand au bruit lorsque nous attendions pour être placés à la table. Finalement ça s’est bien passé. C’est bruyant car les gens sont enjoués mais l’atmosphère est tellement agréable qu’on oublie le bruit. Le service est extrêmement bien. On peut demandé à n’importe qui pour du service sans se faire dire que ce n’est pas leur table. Le service est rapide. À la fin on nous a servi un limoncello gratuitement. Ensuite on nous a offert un grappa aussi gratuitement. En discutant avec le proprio, il nous a demandé d’où on venait et pourquoi nous avions choisi son resto. Finalement encore on nous a offert un porto 10 ans pour notre dixième anniversaire de mariage.

There are quite a few specials and the food was very tasty. The service was quite efficient. There was a nice variety on the menu
It was a holiday dinner. It was fantastic!
Excellent all around ! Great food - but great service . Ask for Elio ! He’s the Best 👍👍😊😊
Fabulous restaurant with a keen eye towards providing customers with outstanding service and care.
Maitre d took excellent care of us. Table was late being ready for our reservation on a packed evening but the staff went over the top to make up for the inconvenience. Excellent authentic Italian and world class professionalism. Will come again!
Allora is an excellent Italian restaurant. Everything was superb. Impeccable service, delicious food, very attractive restaurant on both occasions when we dined here. I highly recommend it.
This was my second time here and just like the first time the service was excellent. The maitre d’, Fadil, was warm, welcoming, and treated us like we were regulars.
The wine, bread, hot peppers, chunks of parmigiana, kale salad, octopus, pasta bolognese, chicken parmigiana.and the limoncello are all superb. The Caesar salad was nothing special so get something else’s.
Not sure if Open Table is aware but booking a time slot does not guarantee a table - as we and others found out - but after waiting stoically for 20 mins for a table we sat down next to a noisy table of 10.
The food was incredible and the maitre’d was enthusiastically giving us freebies throughout the evening including 30 year old port ...
I love this place and would recommend it despite the crazy wait. Just avoid the rush hour.
Come for the amazing food and you’ll keep coming back for the outstanding and friendly service.
Amazing food! The staff were great.
First of all, reservations weren’t really needed, there was no check in desk. It was all Helter skelter with about 50 people waiting around the crowded bar. People that were coming out were complaining that they were rushed through dinner. The problem was, once we got seated we didn’t get our menus for five minutes we had to ask for them,and after waiting to find out what the specials were, we had to wait five minutes for our drinks. From then on it was rush, rush, rush to get us out and turn tables. Speaking of tables, they kept bringing a table across from us with no room to sit, setting it up, moving it out , bringing it back again , and moving it back again to the back of the restaurant. The food was good, but not worth the price, and the atmosphere wasn’t relaxing. The table behind us complained that their risotto wasn’t coked, and was inedible. My date had the same meal, ten minutes later, but was cooked correctly. Place was just as crowded after we left as it was before we were seated. Seems like they just had available time slots left on Open Table, so they could overbook tables to get as many people in and out, we will not be coming back.
Allora was a good experience. We booked a table an hour before our reservation and were given a choice of tables. We had an early reservation and the restaurant rapidly filled up after we were seated. The wait staff was highly choreographed and we never felt forgotten despite being in the back corner of the restaurant. The food was really good. The only downside is that because we had an early dinner reservation we were very rushed - they were busy and trying to clear the tables, but the otherwise lovely experience was marred by the very apparent rushing that they were doing.
We visited on a night when a very loud group was present. The restaurant is very small and the group was very loud. We literally couldn’t hear each other talk, so we had to eat in silence and go elsewhere. The ambience was otherwise nice, the staff was wonderful, and the food portions were large. There were no sides and the waiter or menu didn’t advice us of that upon ordering. The food was fine but nothing special.
There was a ridiculously loud party and everything suffered. My friend said thhe 43 dollar sea bass smelled or tasted fishy snd the waiter said “its fish”. How obnoxious.
A reliably wonderful venue for a night out with friends. The food and service were great
Food is good and enjoyed it., service felt brusque. Too many wait staff circling around and sometimes felt like they were doing us a favor!
Wonderful Caesar salad made table side.,but pasta was chewy. Waiter seemed reluctant to provide the menu although it was in his hands - clearly pushing a couple of dishes, one of which I ended up having. But why not share the menu? Odd place. Not the delicious Italian experience I had hoped for.
Good food but very slow service and overpriced.
Amazing as always. Phenomenal food, attentive service, a great experience overall! As Elio would say, “You better believe it!!”.
We met friends here on Saturday evening and were very please with the overall dinner. The retaurant is lively and the food is great.
So disappointed. First of all, there are so may staff members mulling about, it’s almost hard to focus. Although we ordered a special appetizer which was good, the regular menu selections were average at best. I will not be returning.
Never have had a bad meal. The staff is old school and the place just has the most authentic vibe.
Place was packed on a Wednesday night and even with a reservation we had to wait a little bit. Boy was it worth the wait!!
Excellent service, delicious food, massive portions and nice wine selection. The staff were amazing and surprised me with dessert and even sang Happy Birthday. Ended the evening with raisin grappa! Wonderful experience!! Will definitely be back!
Overall. Extremely terrible. I didn’t know that I was invisible until I got to this restaurant. Had a 7pm reservation. When I got there at 650 the maitre d ignored me. 15 minutes he said. By 745 he got us a table. Squeezed us into a table where I could have eaten off the 3 table where we were squished. Oh. And the noise was deafening. And I saw several table waiting for food or service or something. We opted to go elsewhere by 8. An hour after the reservation. I would strongly suggest NOT going. Disaster!!!
My boyfriend and our mother’s were in New York City for a celebratory weekend and were very excited to try Allora. Sadly we were treated so rudely by the hostess, who shooed us to the end of the bar while our table was being set and rolled her eyes at us when we asked if we could order a drink while we waited. After awkwardly browsing the menu and trying to shake the feeling that we weren’t welcome, we finally decided to take our business elsewhere after yet another huffy eye roll from the hostess.
We made s reservation and still had to wait an hour. The place is very loud. The acoustics aren’t very good. Food was incredible.
The service is the best! We celebrated a birthday and everything was top notch! One of my favorite places.
