What a wonderful experience, their patio was set up perfectly. We would happily eat out there again even if given the option of indoor dining. Food was phenomenal, beautifully presented, incredible depth of flavor and not typical “tasting menu” portions. Could not recommend enough.

The patio is lovely and the heaters made it very comfortable. We did a 4 course and a 5 course meal. The staff were informative and gave great recommendations. The sommelier spent a lot of time with us and helped us find the perfect bottle of wine. She gave recommendations in multiple price ranges so we did not feel pressure. The food was divine. We loved everything but the carne cruda and the ciccioli were our favorites. Our waitress was also a highlight.

We had the most amazing time! The food and drinks were delicious. My friend and I were celebrating our birthdays. They had a personalized message on the menus when we got to the table. Everyone was super friendly and looked like they enjoy what they do. I can’t wait to come back!

In every detail of dining, including Covid19 safety precautions, Allora goes above and beyond! They are a smaller space so a little bit of vibrant noise is to be expected but nothing that impedes quiet table conversations.

Fine dining, best gourmet Italian cuisine in town. Food, service and ambiance are all excellent! I started with the octopus, my second course was Parmesan risotto and main course was short rib, which was just the right amount for my healthy appetite. The servers are friendly and helpful, precise and explain all dishes with dramatic flair. The food is superbly seasoned and prepared, fresh and delicious, and the outdoor dining patio is warm and well spaced. I will be back a lot!

One of the best restaurant experiences I’ve ever had. The outdoor seating was cozy and warm. The tasting menu offered such incredible options. The food was plated beautifully and the flavors of the food matched its beauty. Our server was attentive and well versed in the menu so that made the experience that much more informative. It was such a great way to spend an anniversary and we will definitely be back.

Celebrated my wife’s birthday. Allora didn’t disappoint the food was amazing as always. Our server (David with two D’s)was awesome and very accommodating being as we had our children with us this time so the chef had some kid friendly 3 course meals. 72 hour short rib and scallops are my wife and I favorite dishes, but OMG, the Fettuccine with lobster and pancetta 🤤. Definitely one of the favorites now. This place never disappoints our favorite restaurant in Sac and surrounding areas

I came here with my girlfriends on a Saturday night Jan 2021 covid times - lots of social distancing, tables were quiet even tho mine was not with all the laughing lol. Loved the pallet cleansers, they also have virgin rose drink which is such a compliment to the remixed version of their Manhattan ... it’s pricey but I feel that it’s generosity for the local businesses in our community and restaurant employees. My friends never like to spend this much on dinners but all said this place was “WORTH IT” ♥️♥️♥️ oh and they play a sexy Alina Baraz playlist .. felt like my Alexa was following me around !

I have reviewed Allora here on OpenTable already, but I thought it might be good to give an updated review, given the current times.

First and foremost, it is clear that Allora’s owners and staff take safety and cleanliness very seriously. The entire staff is double masked and clearly does due diligence when sanitizing areas for customers. Some restaurants will talk the talk about safety on their websites and social media, but Allora walks the walk; they clearly care about the safety and well-being of customers.

We were a bit concerned about the weather as it was a cold January night and local restrictions only allow outdoor dining, but their heavy-duty heaters made it comfortable enough to take our jackets off!

The most important takeaway from our dinner was that their safety precautions do not at all detract from the incredible culinary experience Allora delivers to its guests.

As I stated in an earlier review, Allora is, in my opinion, the best Restaurant in Sacramento. The food and service are unmatched; this stands true even in these difficult times for the restaurant industry.

Thank you very much for your kind words. We really want to treat our staff and guests like family, and that includes keeping them safe during this time. I am happy the extra precautions do not go unnoticed - or unappreciated. Warmest Regards!

Our son turned 21 so we decided to splurge with a nice family dinner at Allora. The staff went above and beyond making our visit memorable, starting with a personalized menu. Our waiter and bartender chatted with our son about each course, and specifically about the cocktails that were made for him - even bringing out the bottles so he could take pics of them to remember what had been served. Considering that COVID changed what is normally done by most 21 year olds on their birthdays, our son (and our entire family) loved this experience of amazing food and remarkable service.

A meal at Allora is guaranteed to be fantastic. We ate here for the grand reopening (outside) and had an amazing meal. The service is unmatched and every dish was outstanding. A personal favorite was the lobster fettuccine. Highly recommend Allora if you’re looking for a great fine dining meal in Sacramento.

They remodeled their patio for outside dining. The food is wonderful. It is a fixed price Dinner, either three, four or five courses. With Covid all the staff is wearing masks. Everything is safe. The food is delicious. It is Italian. They have an excellent selection of Italian wines. I would recommend dinner there

Allora is spectacular every time! The front of the house and the back of the house are passionate and educated about everything that comes out of the kitchen, the wine room, or the bar.
Elegant, yet cozy ambiance for a stylish date night, or a -from scratch, with love- meal with the family.
The family meals designed for pickup are just as full of quality ingredients, detailed touch, and deliciousness as the seated tasting menus.
I highly recommend Allora!

Went for my friends birthday. We try to frequent here as much as possible. I want this restaurant to survive Covid since it is probably the best higher end restaurant in Sacramento currently. It is not inexpensive but, you get what you pay for. That being said I have had many memorial experiences here and the service is exceptional! If you are individuals that only go out for special occasions or think everyday is special, DO NOT miss Allora! You’ll thank yourself for going.
