My wife and I made a reservation to celebrate are first month of marriage. I am a chef and my wife is a pastry chef and being from the industry we try make it apparent to treat are selfs to the other side every once in awhile. Needless to say we loved everything. From the moment we reached the front steps and the hostess opening the door to invite us in to the Sommelier giving us a complementary glass of sparkling. The service was stellar from every angle and the food was top of the line, fresh, rich, and technical loved it!

Incredible service and food. A bit pricey but sometimes you dont mind paying a little extra for an extraordinary meal and experience. The owner stopped by our table and spoke with us for several minutes answering our questions about the menu. What I truly loved about our experience was they were truly appreciative that we were there. They made us feel special and that they valued our patronage. Lovely people all around.

We started our dinner with a seafood platter which was presented beautifully. Service was perfect for the entire meal. Wait staff was on point. Unfortunately as the dinner progressed, the food didn't hold up. Ingredients weren't seasoned enough. The bagna cauda didn't taste of garlic nor anchovies. The buccatini with crab had an overwhelming taste of onion instead of seafood. Ambience was fantastic and overall it made for a lovely evening.

This was our first time dining at Allora. We sat on the outside patio which was lovely. We had the walnut gorgonzola salad, little gem salad, duck confit appetizer, risotto, the fettucini with seafood and the Osso Bucco. The food and service were both excellent. Look forward to going back as soon as we can!

The hostess and manager were great from the start. We had a table outside and were concerned about it being too cold. They accommodated us by bringing two heat lamps over to our table. From there everyone was exceptional. The server was super attentive and was highly knowledgeable about the menu. We had no idea it was his first shift on his own. He was confident. Our water glasses were never empty. We sat outside and had the whole patio to ourselves for the first half of our date. It was peaceful and the ambiance was beautiful. The food was delicious and overall had a wonderful experience.

Our waiter David definitely enhanced the evening with his knowledge and humor. The wine list was excellent and the entrees were absolutely delicious! The appetizers were good, but were far outshined by the entrees and the dessert.

The service, the food, the wine, the ambiance - I can’t rave enough about this place. If you’re a first time go-we please order the muscles appetizer! Finish with halibut for dinner and wash down with a nice bottle of Nebbiolo. I can’t wait to bring a bigger group to Allora. I am just overwhelmed by the positive experience! Thank you for providing for such an outstanding dining experience.

From the moment you walk in to Allora, you know there’s something special about this restaurant. The sommelier greeted us and held the door open as we entered. The decor is an emerald mid century dream. Our cocktails and wine were perfectly paired with our food choices. The food was incredible and seemed to be more impressive with every course. We will be back, many times!

First time at Allora and it did not disappoint. Recommend going on wine Wednesday and getting a bottle at half price. I liked that there were so many wines to choose from at all price ranges. Service was perfect and the bucatini was one of the best pastas I’ve had all year.

I am excited about the place because of the quality of food and the detail in the wine list which is focused on regional Italian wine. I noticed the server's detailed understanding of the dishes, and wine that shows some good understanding of the proper service behind the scene. This a successful attempt to provide the Sacramento area with a classy restaurant that stands up to standards of fine dining. If there is a criticism, in my mind, it is about the loud vibe and inadequate attention to acoustics of the dining hall. With some attention to details, Micheline star is not out of realm of imagination.

The food was marvelous. Incredibly tasteful with unusual combinations. Tastefully presented.
The service was terrific, thoughtful and attentive. Ambience is very nice. It did get a bit loud after the restaurant filled up. Will definitely be back again.

We had heard great things about the restaurant, with a great wine list (that's true!) and read good reviews, so were eager to enjoy in the great ambience, and food. While the food was very tasty and well-prepared, and the service over-attentive, it was no better than various other restaurants of that same level and in the nearby/midtown area. What was very disappointing and a negative was the seeming hidden agenda of "add-ons" offered/recommended without prices which led to a simple Sunday dinner for 3 (starter & main, no dessert, and 1 bottle of reasonable wine) being &400. That was because "the chef suggests some shavings of Burgundy truffles with that" meant 3 meager shavings of truffles (with barely a perfume) on the very tasty Osso Buco. That added $50, and then the suggestion of scallops added to the risotto... and so it went. Go for the very tasty food and excellent wine list... but beware of the "chef suggests" so you don't leave feeling ripped off as we did.
