Although the service was excellent & the food good, i was disappointed that at the end of a $409 meal the way they made it a special occasion was to bring a plate with a small birthday candle.

First time there for our anniversary. The food was delicious and the service was great. The drinks were very good as well. We will definitely be going back. Maybe a little over priced, but I think the quality and service is worth it. Only downside I would say is parking. Not really an issue for me though.

Lovely, from our initial greeting upon arrival to leaving after a glorious dining experience.
The gracious and exquisite service was rivaled only by the absolutely perfect food.

First rate service and food. We had to wait for a more suitable table as one member of our party cannot sit on a raised chair. We were given a little complimentary champagne and hors d'oeuvres to compensate for the wait. They were wonderful!

Celebrated a birthday party at Allora and it couldn’t not have been any better! Fabulous service from Holly and the food was on point! Definitely the duck , risotto, scallops and the Branzino were favorites!

Friendly professional service, clean establishment and truly excellent food. Above average bar with knowledge staff

Parking is an issue and it is more expensive than most the competitors but worth going at least from time to time

The wait staff were all exceptional, especially our waiter who spoke with the chef about my food intolerances. The dishes were prepared attractively and very tasty. The only disappointing aspect of the restaurant is that it gets too noisy when it's crowded (and it was). It was too cool to sit on the patio but in warmer weather that might be the way to go. We took our 30-something children with us and they enjoyed it as much as we did but also complained of the noise.

Steak for $78...way to high. Fish for $56? You need white table cloths for these prices. Steak fatty.

Responded on March 4, 2020

Hi Brenda, we're sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy your visit! Although we are "casual fine dining", our intent is a modern experience and table cloths aren't modern. Our tables are also hand made by a local artisan and are an integral part of our design. For future reference, the 14 oz Bistecca (or Rib Eye) is the fattiest cut of steak available (1 to 1 protein to fat ratio), and our Branzino is a whole fish meant to be shared or for one with a large appetite. We hope this helps!

Beautiful quiet dining room made for a great experience. The server was knowledgeable about the wines and menu. I had the wine flight which featured good wines from Italy that I am not familiar with and we all enjoyed our pasta dishes. My friend ordered a salad which was gorgeous as were the 2 desserts we shared. I can’t wait to go back!

We came in on a Tuesday night not expecting it to be too busy but for a weeknight, the restaurant was fairly lively. We ordered the fettuccine lobster pasta, crab bucatini, and the scallop dish. Everything tasted great and the service was excellent. The lobster pasta was flavorful and had a mild kick. The bucatini was creamy and generous on the crab. Our favorite item was the scallop dish that was complimented with crisp pork belly and a sweet orange cream sauce. Would definitely recommend for the dining experience!

We were a party of two, both foodies, and we both very much enjoyed our dinner. The food (octopus, oysters Rockefeller, bucatini with sea urchin and crab, lobster fettuccine) was excellent and the service exemplary.

Larrissa gave us the best service we’ve ever experience dining out. She was very sweet and knowledgeable in the menu, we had never been to Allora so we asked for recommendation on food. She was attentive and made sure everything was perfect for us. Her skill and personality did not go unnoticed. The quality of the food was amazing and we were happy with the dishes we chose! We can’t wait to come back, thank you again.

The best fine dining restaurant in Sacramento. Replaces Ella as our number 1. Creative dishes prepared by a real chef. The most amazing was one of their small plate side dishes, parmigiana risotto..amazing.

We have been enjoying Allora since they opened. ALWAYS, even in the early phases, they have been FANTASTIC in ALL CATEGORIES (space, ambiance, service, and FOOD). TOP MARKS in EVERY CATEGORY. To have done this so well, from day 1, and to have maintained their consistent, unsurpassed EXCELLENCE, is MIRACULOUS. WE LOVE THIS PLACE !!!

Food lived up to the hype... and we were impressed! The seafood tower and steak tartare were perfect appetizers, while the risotto, cavatellii, and bucatini all were perfectly cooked and tasted amazing. We would recommend you go there now!
