Both the service and food were excellent. Great Italian restaurant.
So noisy under construction the server was rough he did not ware the mask
Old time service, the meal started with complimentary peppers, salami, parmesan and fried zucchini rounds that were fabulous. Incredible service, attentive without being intrusive, we had their homemade tube pasta with meatballs which was so tasty (a fun show at the table they stretch it out and cut it at the table) and a squid ink ravioli with lobster that was succulent and rich. The "kiss goodnight" at the restaurant is the complimentary aperitif - your choice of homemade grappa, limoncello or sambucca. Wonderful evening!
The food is very good at Allora. We would recommend for a midtown lunch after the construction is finished (not at allora, but outside).
Wow. Authentic Italian. The veal melted in my mouth. All the spices were perfect. Can't wait to visit again.
We ate outside in the backyard. There was construction next door, so the noise level was high. The food was good, but the service was quite slow
Great Italian food and atmosphere. The food is always flavorful and tastes fresh, I’ve never had a bad meal here. Great place to bring clients or friends.
The food and service was superb!! Tableside meal preparation was a treat, everything was wonderful
Delishious food, great service everything was perfect definitely coming back to this restaurant when i come back to New York.
The service here was impeccable and food was amazing!
Lovely ambience, terrific food! Love going here.
I sat unattended for 25 minutes and left.
My first drink (Prosecco) did not come for over 20 minutes where there was no other customers. They explained me that they have a bar up on roof and it is closed so they didn’t have a cold bottle. Waited further, they told me to wait as they are chilling the bottle (unbelievable). When they finally served me a glass of Prosecco, it was not cold. It was very unprofessional not having cold drink ready and disappointing experience.
I have walked past here so many times. Never again!
Nothing outstanding, quite a bit lacking, particularly service. There were 4 members of our serving team— lead was perfunctory, one was openly disdainful, one was very chipper and friendly (thankfully) and one handled the water and busing. Pasta dish (shrimp and spinach fettuccine) was over cooked with an overly thickened, paste-y sauce. Would’ve sent it back but no one checked to see how it was. Special squid ink ravioli was very good. Carpaccio was non descript. Decent selection of wines by the glass. Overall, a nice variety of menu selections. Desserts looked basic (visually presented). Going to out this experience right out of mind and not bother with them again
The food was delicious and our waiter was very kind and explained everything in full detail off the top of his head.
This is the second time I went to this place and I was double charged for some dishes. The first time I was there I thought it was an honest mistake but the second time I went there it happened again and I noticed the next door table complaining about the same thing. Watch out!
Atmosphere of true NYC Italian restaurant! Excellent food - 30' long pasta noodle and lobster ravioli with great appetizers! We came here because of location near our hotel on Memorial Day Weekend.
Probably the best Italian we have ever had and the service was awesome. Such nice people. We usually never leave a review for restaurants, but they deserve it.
Old school service with great attention to detail combined with excellent food. A win/ win dining experience with perfect ambiance.
i felt there were intentionally misleading communication that lead to several charges on our bill. we were asked if we wanted still or sparkling. there was no mention of tap - we did say still assuming we were getting tap water - $30. Two of us each ordered the pasta special which was enormous and served family style and $46 - there was no mention of size or a suggestion that it could be shared. Lastly, the other 4 guests ordered the fish special which was 45, as well. Our server said “and for vegetables we have...” leading us to believe it was included and not al la carte. The tactics were dishonest and certainly misleading.
Great “go to” Italian!
Excellent table side Caesar salad, all the food was great. Service too. I will return and would definitely recommend.
Went there to celebrate getting engaged to my fiancé! All the way from Oregon, Allora gave us the true Italian experience we were looking for. Food was excellent, service was even better! Wine selection was incredible and the ambience was perfect! Highly recommend!
We had a great time! Would return tomorrow.
We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner - 2nd time there and we will definitely be back!!
The staff was unbelievable! I loved every minute, even on my way out...I felt as though I was leaving my Villa in Italy all over again, right here in NYC!
Food was too salty and the place was dark, very sus
This place is a true gem in Midtown East. The owner who was also functioning as the maître d’ was just wonderful. Extraordinarily attentive service. Fabulous well-crafted food. Very reasonable as well. If you’re looking for great northern Italian this place is it!
The place was closed. Opentable accepted my 2:30 PM reservation for rooftop that opens at 5PM))) I kissed the closed door😟
Loved the service and atmosphere. Very romantic. We were provided with complementary small plates before we ordered. After eating, a dessert cart was rolled around and we were given moonshine on the house! A very nice surprise. Would definitely come here again.
Food was good, but not worth the price. They overcharge for almost everything, but we did get free appetizers.
Such a welcoming place!! Delicious food and great hospitality. Highly recommend!! A great neighborhood find for us
Wonderful meal. Amazingly attentive service. I felt that we were very much appreciated. Best veal parm i have had in a long time.
Had dinner here with a friend. The space is relatively small and charming, with tables spaced well apart. Background music is "Sinatra" type jazz, low enough so you can converse easily. The Maitre D' is a delight. Big personality, warm and eager to ensure that all his diners are happy. Most of our dishes were excellent to outstanding. We loved the baby kale salad appetizer with raisins, walnuts, ricotta and raspberry dressing, and both mains were fabulous: Black Pappardele fra diavolo with zucchini skins, mushrooms and a perfectly spicy tomato sauce, and Chicken breast filets dipped in parmesan and sauted in lemon and white wine/butter sauce (one of the specials that evening). Our other appetizer was a special, as well, and the only mixed note: a scallop with a tomato based sauce was perfectly cooked and delicious. But the single whole calamari on the same plate was too tough, and what appeared to be a heart of palm with sauce was good but not memorable. Chocolate cake for dessert was delicious. Red wines start at $59 and escalate quickly from there. Our bill with tax, before wine, was $170. Feels a bit expensive for this level but not egregiously so. And we had a wonderful evening here. Recommended for a romantic dinner or when you're in the mood for great food and service with friends or family.
Delicious, fresh dishes.
We were greeted with nothing but kindness. The servers were amazing and friendly. The food was fantastic. Would definitely come back again.
Pasta alle vongole was nothing close to what they were supposed to be.
Amazing food and service!! Best Italian in New York City!! Hi eat there today, you won’t be disappointed. Enjoy the specials.....especially
Fantastic experience! Benny and Ellio will take care of you!
