This is our favorite restaurant for special occasions and date nights. The food is spectacular, as is the service and decor. As a vegetarian, I really appreciate the special vegetarian menu (with many options!). The wine list is incredible, and Elizabeth Rose always offers unique and amazing pairings with our food. We are so lucky to have this restaurant in Sacramento - highly recommend!

The best dining experience I've ever had. Our Waitress Taryn helped tie the whole night together. She was super knowledgeable about the whole menu, as well as all of the wine pairings with each of the courses. I can't say enough good things about this restaurant

My husband and I went to Allora for our wedding anniversary, and everyone made us feel so special! The food was outstanding as always, but the service is next level and makes the whole dining experience unique. The Polpo is cooked to perfection and the black cod melts in your mouth

My guest of honor requested an outside table after I made the reservation. Allora and Brandy/Brandie worked to make it happen even though all outside seating was full. Food, Service, wine recommendations were all amazing! We will definitely be back. Truly an artistic dining experience of which we felt lucky to participate! Grazie mille Allora!

Our experience at Allora was amazing. We were seated almost an hour after our reservation. However, the delay did not detract from the overall experience. ER stepped in to make the wait more comfortable and took care of our first round of drinks. Special menus were prepared for the celebration. Everything was so delicious and vibrant. I'm so happy I made the choice to celebrate at Allora and look forward to returning.

It’s always a fine dining experience going to Allora, the food and service are exceptional...second to none! The Polpo is fantastic and the lobster and pancetta linguini is my favorite, the light, lemony tomato sauce is so fresh. For me the 3 course menu option is the right amount of food, and I have a healthy appetite!

Lived up to the hype. Meal was sublime and service was impeccable. Loved that we could mix and match off the menu, eg, trade in one of our desserts for another antipasto. Only nice was a 20 min wait beyond out reservation time. Will
Go back again.

Food and cocktails are amazing. It was my partner's first time here and he said "they treat everyone like they already know you." There is a genuine warmth and caring vibe from the greeting to the aesthetic to every single perfect plate of food. Such a treat to have this level of hospitality in Sacramento.

PS don't be worried about a chilly evening reservation, you will be so comfortable and safe on their patio.

Went with a group of 6 girls made reservations and had to wait almost 45 min outside, food came at all different times they were boxing one without even bringing the rest of the foods for the others. I personally did not see the reason for all the hype.

We’ve dined at Allora before and always enjoyed the experience. This last time just seemed an off night. We waited 20 minutes for our table even with an early reservation. The service level was quite slow between courses. My wife had 3 long hairs in her risotto. When she pointed it out the wait staff seemed annoyed and took the dish away quickly. A new one brought without any mention of an apology. We still paid the $10 up charge, the money wasn’t the issue, would have expected them to take the cost off the bill. Our dessert was supposed to be lemon curd filled mini donuts. We got the donuts but no lemon curd.
The rest of the meal was delicious, however there were a few issues.

I was pleased overall...but 2 missteps...I ordered the caviar service the zepoli were over salted, it overpowered the briney flavor of the caviar. The bartender forgot the alcohol in my drink...he made me a new one.

Allora exceeded expectations (I only put 4 star for the value rating b/c it really was expensive) and with that being said - the service was outstanding - from the host to the server to the bartender to the expeditor - EVERYONE was exceptional and welcoming. The cocktails were delicious, the food was exceptional, the presentation was perfect. I would highly recommend for any special occasion!

We have dined here several times and this was our least favorite experience thus far. Normally they are very attentive here and the food is amazing, but this visit lacked on both. Our server was not attentive, took a while to come to our table, and made no mention of my wife’s birthday though the manager/hostess did on arrival and it was printed on the menu (which is a nice touch). On past visits they have brought a glass of sparkling wine to celebrate the occasion, but not this visit. It felt very normal. The food was good but not the incredible experience we have had in the past. All things considered, for a $350 meal, there are other options that are better, and we could have had this same experience with a $150 dinner. If this is what to expect in the future we won’t bother to spend this much money. This was out 5th visit and maybe our last.
