Service - impeccable; food - gorgeous presentation and delicious; ambience and seating- we were not seated inside. The patio seating was a tad uncomfortable.

We were pleasantly surprised how wonderful our dining experience was at Allora. The food was amazing, perfectly cooked and seasoned. The wine pairing complemented our multiple courses. We are still talking about how great our meal was, that says a lot!!! We can wait to go back.

Seated outside which was very loud especially with the large multi family table with children immediately next to us. I don’t go out to an expensive restaurant to join young children. I go to escape such for a date night

This was our first time dining at Allora. It was a wonderful experience from start to finish. We were pleasantly greeted immediately upon entering the restaurant and then seated promptly. The restaurant is not large, and therefore has an intimate feel, even though the interior space is very open.

The wait staff were attentive throughout the evening. Holly, our waitress, appeared sincere in her desire to make our evening special and she was extremely knowledgeable of the food menu and eclectic wine list. My wife and I enjoyed the naked oysters with dipping sauces. The oysters were fresh, firm and delicious. We each had tasty salads that whetted our appetites for the entrees.

I enjoyed a most flavorful, and tender, Pork Osso Buco; I wouldn't have changed a thing. My wife loved the Risotto with truffles (the truffles are not always available). We shared our dishes, and I thought the Risotto had good texture, but was served with a bit too much liquid remaining in the dish. I couldn't get my wife to part with a truffle, so I can't comment the flavor, but they looked great.

The luscious chocolate desert was beautifully presented, and a delight for the palate.

It is not an inexpensive dining experience, but when you feel like treating yourself, friend or family member to one of the best meals in Sacramento, Allora needs to be on your list.

A friend was visiting from out of town and I wanted to take him somewhere nice to show off Sacramento. We chose Allora due to our love of seafood and pasta. It was absolutely amazing! It was the best service both of us had ever experienced at a restaurant. The staff were so attentive and knowledgeable. Allora is beautifully decorated and the food was delicious. It is a smaller size restaurant so it has a more personable and intimate feel. Would highly recommend!

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.

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.
