It was a really cool experience. We chose the 4 course meal & it was really nice that we could switch up what we actually wanted. Our waiter was amazing — he knew the menu really well & his recommendations were great!
We had the best table in the house with a view of the kitchen which was really interesting to watch!
It was almost like an orchestrated event — the flow of the meals & in between palate cleansers & we barely had to wait for our food. Everyone really made our anniversary a night to remember! Will definitely come back for special events.

Took my wife for her birthday and it was truly a phenomenal experience. The service, from the second we walked in was perfection. The food was the best we have ever tasted. It was honestly one of the most wondrous culinary experiences I have had the privilege to enjoy. And we’ve been to Italy! Brava and Grazie to the whole team!

We had outside table and it was very comfy. My friend from Minneapolis had pork belly while I ordered the octopus. Both were great very soft not chewy. The steak was also awesome. I am so pleased with the service and I will definitely come back to try the other items.

We really enjoyed ourselves. Food was exquisite we especially loved the lobster pasta and the octopus. Drinks were great as well. Staff was super helpful. We each got the 3 course dinner and a couple of drinks. Definitely a splurge leaving but it was well worth it. We went for our 1 year anniversary but would definitely come back again! Thank you Allora for everything!

We had heard great things ... and Allora exceeded our high expectations. Perhaps our best restaurant experience in Northern California (including San Francisco). The antipasti, pasta, and dolci courses were outstanding; our entrees were very good. We did wine pairings by the glass for each course. Our server Katie did a superb job all around and especially with the pairing of Italian whites with the opening courses. She picked some Italian white varietals that were completely new to us and did not disappoint. Also noteworthy: bartender Leon is a cocktail wizard and clearly loves his work. His cacao-infused Negroni, with mezcal substituted for gin, was the best Negroni I've EVER had ... and that is quite a few. He took time to come to our table and even shared some of the secrets of his art.

This is the best restaurant in town.. hands down!! The food is delicious, the service is top tier and the drinks were amazing!!
The bartender knows what he is doing and even took his time carefully to come and bring the drinks himself. Description of the food in the most classier way. If I could give more than 5 starts I would!

Superb restaurant in every aspect!!!!! Enjoyed the elegant ambiance, warm-attentive staff, and the food and beverages were exceptional!! The sommelier was spot-on with helping us to select a great wine for our tastes. And although we didn’t order cocktails, we witnessed the bartender using his mixologist talents to create well-designed cocktails. A vegetarian / vegan menu is available upon request. Definitely a worthwhile event!! I recommend it for the experience and/or special occasions. We will be returning.

We were seated late but staff was very gracious in offering us some delectable eats. The food was less than excellent this time around - we have been here numerous times. The lamb dish was not available. The menu needs to be varied including the dessert choices.-we don’t think it has changed/been updated in years. This is especially true as the menu is small and, for repeat customers, it is getting a bit boring. Allora has been an outstanding establishment in Sacramento but is at risk of losing its appeal. The service was excellent-as always- and much appreciated!

An elaborate fixed menu selection with distinctive, well executed dishes. Not for a casual meal. They set out to make it an experience and it is. Unlike some Michelin striving restaurants, the dishes were reasonably sized.

The presentation of the menu, sealed with sealing wax, and the right margin oriented menu/wine list were pretentious and/or irritating. The place does not need gimmicks.

We were celebrating a 60th birthday. The wait staff was attentive to our every need even opening doors for us.

The service was impeccable. The food was delicious. For my taste, the lobster pasta was a bit salty. However, with that being said I still I ate every last bit.

I would return for another special occasion. It was expensive for just a casual evening out.

Most definitely an experience and truly a great one!

Absolutely amazing! Not our first time and won’t be our last. You can truly observe and taste the passion and intention behind each cocktail and dish. Our table wasn’t ready when we arrived but the host sat us at the bar so we could begin with a drink and entire staff was very friendly and accommodating. Well done, Allora! Until next time.

Arrogant attitude of management and snooty server combined with mediocre food, make for a poor dining experience. Ridiculous attitudes for almost a $500 dinner for two people. Outdoor garden is attractive though
