    It took 15 minutes to find our server. Once he showed up he was ok but not great. The food was mediocre- no better than my cooking- and expensive. The ambiance was pleasant outdoors but the dining room seemed cramped and noisy. The check was confusing- I presented a credit card and was given a room check to sign. Had to make an additional effort to sort it out.

    We are on a road trip and chose Cello on the Open Table app. to try. Didn’t disappoint! My husband had the Angus Burger with Fries. He’s the burger guy. This one was delicious! The fries were just a bit crunchy which is how he likes them! I had the Spinach and chicken ravioli. Ate every bit of it. The sauce was so tasty! Will go back when we are in the Paso Robles area next time.

    We loved the food very much. But we must let you know that La Vay, our waitress, (and I might be spelling her name wrong), was a jewel in every way. She just managed our every need and was delightful about everything. Our reservation changed from 2 to 3 persons and although 3 is not a crowd, she was still exceptional with us.

    This was a special occasion for my mothers 73rd birthday. Upon arrival we were seated at a table in the back where we waited without anyone coming to our table for over 30 minutes. After speaking to the hostess about not being helped, another 10 minutes went by before someone came to our table. We were told that we were forgot about and it didn’t get much better from there. This is a very nice hotel however, this restaurant is a complete disaster. The food was subpar the employees had no idea what they were doing and overall it wasn’t a very good experience. I will say though, our waitress was very apologetic and very kind. I would suggest that the hotel management take a serious look at this restaurant and make some big changes.

    They have to do something about the chairs with outdoor dining. It’s like chalk on a blackboard when people leave their seats. It’s excruciating the noise that make.

    Horrible! Made reservations weeks in advance for our anniversary. After being seated, we sat there for 35 to 40 mins and did not even get acknowledged by our server.. not even a drink to start. We felt invisible and decided to walk out and eat elsewhere.

    Our waitress tried her best, but service was slow. Also the meat portions were very skimpy. We actually had to ask where the meat was in the pasta dish, and they had to send a side of meat to add to the dish. Items we had wanted were unavailable. Overall not impressed.

    The staff is super young and inexperienced. We celebrated our anniversary here and had higher expectations, based on the elevated feel of the rest of Allegretto. Our entrees were very late with no explanation and then it felt like they were trying to clear our plates 5 minutes later. Never offered bread as was on all the other tables and our server was clueless as to how to serve a bottle of wine. Good was pretty good but disappointing experience overall.

    Look over 15 minutes to get any attention after being sat down with a reservation. The busser ended up taking our order (drinks and all). Waiter showed up at the end and tried to charge us for food we did not get (he never helped us so it’s not like he knew what we were eating). I’ve had better service there but this night was nothing special.

    The staff rates a 10 - very friendly and helpful!! I have been there for lunch and dinner and both times the food fell below my expectations. The flavor is there but both times a bit overcooked. Dining on the patio was beautiful - and the table was in a quiet spot as requested. I will definitely go back!!

    The “wood fired” pizza was on a flatbread style crust similar to what you can buy in a vacuum pack at Walmart. Not great. Prices are very high for the quality you get.

    This is a classic hotel restaurant, not a place for a special occasion. The hostess was nowhere to be found. When she finally showed up, no greeting but went right to her computer. Before we were seated, she answered a call and took another reservation while we waited. We could not have felt less valued as customers. It was a bit like dining at Disneyland - you shouldn't expect a personal touch. But this wasn't even efficient. Food was OK but average quality. Nothing special and certainly not worth the price charged. Stay away unless this is your only option while staying at the hotel.

    Staff is nice and welcoming. Food was just ok, tasty enough but not 4-5 stars. Thought the restaurant would be a lot nicer inside but it’s more cafe style. Windows looking outside we’re filthy, everything else seemed to be nice and clean. Perfect place to eat if your at the hotel, nothing else around to compete with them.

    Forget this place. It has the ambiance of a hotel coffee shop and the food is appalling. The calamari was barely thawed and coated with a bland powdery “batter”. The sauces were over salted. My pasta carbonara tasted like Campbell’s soup with extra salt and soggy noodles. The pictures and descriptions were deceiving. Nope.
