    Per usual, dishes were inventive and used ingredients at peak freshness. Unfortunately, the dishes were underwhelming compared to our earlier visits (5 stars). The prices were quite high at $145 per four-course prix-fixe dinner and $95 for a wine pairing. If the pairings are four half-glasses, this would amount to about $48 per glass! (Needless to say we did not partake.) Service, as always, was exceptional and our waiter Nick described each dish in exquisite detail. We also compliment the restaurant on their large selection of NA cocktails. Noise level was low and the background music was very appropriate for the setting. We will be returning, but only on "Date Nights" (two for one prix-fixe dinners) and we will forego the wine pairings.

    We went to the 2 for 1 date night dinner. Their 4 course menu is fantastic as always. Our server, JP, was kind and made some great wine recommendations for our main course. This combination of sophistication and chill neighborhood vibe is one of the many things that sets Allora apart from most restaurants.

    We dined here for our wedding anniversary. The service was impeccable. We were greeted with personalized menus and a complimentary prosecco. The restaurant had reached out to us in advance regarding food restrictions/allergies, and the server confirmed and clarified that information with us immediately. She then proceeded to assist us in making appropriate choices and changes to the menu based on that. We felt special throughout the meal. The only thing that was a little less than amazing was the tiny amuse-bouche had a rather dry and crumbly pastry base. Also, I had some fried calamari on top of a piece of toasted focaccia, neither of which was warm, so the texture was disappointing. Otherwise, the flavors of the food were delicious. The best thing I put in my mouth was the vegetarian fettuccini. I could eat that every day and never get bored. I would love to return and try new things next time.

    Service was top notch from the time we walked in! Hostess was friendly and attentive. Our table was a little behind in turning over so we sat at the bar and ordered a cocktail. Bartenders were very friendly and engaging. We got to sit at the “chef’s counter” table…it’s not the traditional chef’s counter you would expect so I do feel like they should use a different name, but it was fun having a view into the kitchen. Cocktails were amazing…we normally would have gone with a bottle of wine but it just wasn’t striking us that night so we stuck with cocktails… the sommelier was very friendly and informative though! Our food was excellent from the beginning! We did order an extra course, some oysters to share, which kind of offset how our courses were brought out to us at first but it was quickly corrected. My favorites of the night were the lasagna and duck. I could have eaten 4 servings of both it was so good!! That being said, Each course was a reasonable size. We left feeling satisfied; not still hungry but not so stuffed we were uncomfortable. This was our first time dining here post-pandemic and we would definitely be back. Our server was very knowledgeable and friendly and made us feel special and taken care of, which was fantastic

    Second to none in the Sacramento area for the quality and preparation of food served. We had a party of eight and everyone, everyone was raving about the various dishes we enjoyed at Allora. It didn't matter if it was the seafood, the pasta, the meat dishes, they were all very well prepared, and very tasty. I was glad that I also ordered the wine pairing with my dinner. The cocktails to start our dining experience were simply fabulous. The staff was very gracious and helpful in helping us choose the appropriate dishes and cocktails. We had our own little private corner, which proved very intimate for our group and hopefully kept the noise from our table to a minimum to the rest of the restaurant guests. Can't wait to go back, so many other dishes I still need to order.

    As always, the food was beautifully prepared, inventive, and flavorful. The boar ravioli, 15-layer lasagna, and duck were particular standouts. ER helped us pick out a fabulous wine from Allora's amazingly curated list of Italian and Greek wines, this time a Corinto Nero grown in obsidian soils from the Aeolian Islands that matched beautifully with the meal and was another revelation. Our server Daniel was great - very professional and had all of the fine-dining moves down pat.

    Our reservation was at 9 and we didn’t get seated until way later. The whole point of a reservation is to have a table ready at that time, I could have just walked in and gotten a table. The food took forever to come out. It was 10:45 and we were only on course 4 of 7.

    The best dining experience I’ve ever had. One course wasn’t my favorite and I mentioned it and they replaced it. The salad they replaced it with was an absolute miracle. Service was exquisite. Thoroughly recommend you go in good or great company because it may be a more expensive meal than you’re accustomed to. Great experience and would repeat again. There’s also a vegan menu if your date is into that sort of thing.

    Our second visit did not disappoint! I took my lovely bride here for a Valentines dinner, and we were served an amazing meal with exceptional service. The octopus was amazing and we loved the lasagna. The chefs preparation of each dish was exquisite. We did send back an appetizer that was comprised of Hamachi because it was fishy… Not sure what happened there, but I’ll give the restaurant a hall pass. Our server did an amazing job, describing the dishes and adding a level of detail that made each dish irresistible. It actually made our choice more difficult! lol. We chose to bring our own bottle of wine which was openly received at check in with instructions on how to serve. This restaurant is first class, and the food is beyond delicious. We’ll be back soon!

    First time. We walk in and it is clean, minimalist and yet warm and welcoming. Staff knowledgeable, kind and outgoing but not obtrusively so. 4course fixed price menu where you make selections for each course. Most have good word appeal and staff knowledgeable if you get stuck. Cocktails are very well done. Wonderful romantic evening … all good!
