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 !!!

Astounding high end food with combinations that I would have never thought of lol. Everything was excellent. Staff was almost overly attentive and made sure we had everything we needed. A very pleasant experience for my husband and me. We'll be going back soon.

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!

This was our third visit. The food was very good. I did wonder if the two pasta dishes we ordered were a bit too over-seasoned with salt and spices. We had to remind the waitstaff to deliver a glass of Barbera with one of our friend’s meals and my glass of red wine was delivered as a half pour when I had requested a full pour. Aside from these things the food and service were very good.

We dined at Allora 4-5 times in the last year, and in spite of expecting a memorable meal, we were always surprised at how our high expectations were exceeded! We never ordered anything that wasn't considerably better than we could possibly have imagined! Everything down to the finest detail is prepared and presented with exquisite refinement and the wine pairings are perfectly suitable; the wine steward knows his craft and is eager to share his knowledge with guests. My wife and I agree Allora is a Sacramento treasure and our new favorite restaurant!!!

Wonderful date night. Outstanding wine service. Food was complex with texture and taste, yet the chef used restraint as no one flavor overpowered the next. The wine pairing was extraordinary. Typically in a pairing the wines are great stand alone and compliment the foods. These pairings didn't just compliment they enhanced the dish. The service was well timed, the staff was knowledgeable and welcoming. Thank you for a lovely evening.

We read a review of this restaurant and drove to the area to find it for our Valentines dinner. We celebrate a day early. It's a warm and contemporary Italian seafood restaurant but the dishes range from Vegan to Meats and beautiful salads and appetizers. We watched the variety coming from the kitchen. It made us want to return soon. Our meal was perfect for us. We split a delicious Little Gems salad, a fetuchini with lobster and pork belly. We love the main entree of Scallops in a tasty light sauce and a side of broccolini. I loved my cocktail and he enjoyed a light red from Italy. We really look forward to returning.

Absolutely some of the best Italian food in the greater Sacramento area! The worst part about eating at Allora is having to choose from a menu where I want one of everything!

We were a party of four, including two vegans and two foodies, and we all very much enjoyed our dinner. The food was excellent and the service exemplary. My only negative comment would be that the portions of the dishes is very uneven: for example the vegan bucatini was about double the size of the tagliolini with snail confit.

A great new find for us in Sacramento. It's a really cool looking place, even from the street! Menu is exciting (albeit, somewhat difficult font to read) and each dish we ordered was both beautiful and delicious. We were also quite happy with the cocktails we ordered and they have a great wine menu. Our server was very good and offered all of the suggestions and descriptions that we needed. The only real issue was, I believe he was somewhat over-taxed with tables (pretty sure they had a rather large party in the back room) and after entrees he forgot our last round of drinks and then mixed up the dessert order. We, of course, were not charged for the drinks or the wrong dessert (which they graciously just left for us to share while waiting for the re-make).

HIGHLY recommended in Sacramento!

Allora is the best restaurant in Sacramento. The environment, service, and food are among the highest quality you will find in town. Yes, this restaurant is expensive; however, you absolutely get what you pay for. Everything we ordered was spectacular. The parmesan risotto was exceptional. Some of our table’s favorites also included the sea scallops and osso buco.

I’ve been here twice and both times, my expectations were exceeded. Give Allora a try - you won’t regret it.
