Good Italian food. We had a reservation but still had to wait 20 minutes for a table. Our waiter was very good considering it was a very busy night.

Very poor welcome on arrival. Dinner served within 10 minutes before any drinks or wine, whole experience was over and done with in 35 minutes. Not what we consider a night out for dinner - overall a very disappointing experience.

Food was clearly above average. Service was attentive. Tomatoes in the caprese salad could have been riper. The Penne Pollo was outstanding. Portion sizes are generous.

We were seated in the corner section, this is the section that normally gets forgotten if you were at any other restaurant. They did not forget us at Ristorante Allegria that's for sure. Super attractive, super friendly! Highly recommended for a date. We met two other couples that were seated in this corner hole area, and we had our own private party there. Our waitress was great too, gave everyone in our section a glass of champagne! Love it!

Our server at first was friendly but not on top of things. I had to send back my meal. It obviously sat too long and the kitchen kept it in the oven to keep warm (but instead over cooked the Pasta). And, our server seem unapologetic which was more disappointing!

Allegria is one of my favorite restaurants in Downtown Napa and it's my most favorite Italian Restaurant in all of the Napa Valley. I live 25 miles away from Allegria and I happily make the drive time to enjoy a great meal each and every time I have dined there. Wonderful food and great service!

Booked a table for 7:30 and arrived about three minutes late , was seated very fast. That surprise us as the place was busy.
Good table service both salad and wine came out quickly with delicious bread. My halibut was cooked perfectly. Penne pasta needed a bit more sauce. But had good taste.
The dining room is a huge open space. Very pretty detailing on the crown mounding.
Wonders what it was built for back on the day.
We will dine here again.
Manager stopped by twice to ask his everything was good.
Took an Uber car there and back. So can't comment on parking.

Best meal we had while in Napa. Our waiter John (Juan) was fantastic and attentive. The food was incredibly flavorful and satisfying. The setting was also very neat being in an old bank. Definitely our highlight of our trip and will be back.

This restaurant was recommended by our B&B owner as we were in Napa celebrating my daughter's birthday. The steak was perfectly prepared, the seafood delicious and service could not have been better. From the moment we entered the establishment, we were greeted and seated promptly. Our waiter was friendly and attentive, serving the birthday girl a wonderful sorbet for dessert. A really nice experience.

The pasta dishes are exceptional. Salads are prepared from local produce and extremely fresh.

Adequate wine list.

The setting is very nice and our party truly enjoyed dining there.

Great value for the money.

My husband and I were visiting Napa and picked this restaurant based on prior reviews on trip advisor. Eclectic interior Service was great...crab cake appetizer was probably the best I've ever had. Fish special was cooked to my dietary restrictions and was delicious! A definite must

We ordered Veal franchise and it came with potatoes. We thought since it was an Italian we would rather have pasta with the dish instead of potatoes. We we quite surprised that when we asked for the pasta, there was an extra charge of 5.99 ! We thought that was ridiculous that in an Italian restaurant we would have to pay an up charge for changing to pasta instead of potatoes. The dishes were priced slightly higher so to change from potatoes to pasta should not be any extra charge! Very cheesy!

Beautiful restaurant , but be sure to make reservations in the main dining area. They seated us in a small room upstairs and the stereo was super loud. The ambiance was like eating in a bedroom of someone's home, while the main diners are in the dinning room. My wife spilled her whiskey full drink all over herself but they did not offer another.
We would go again but in Insist on sitting in the main dining area.

Loved the ambiance...a little bit of Italy in downtown Napa! Sat inside due to cool temperature..but the patio looked inviting! Next time! Started with a Cesar salad...excellent with anchovy ...followed with pasta bolognese. Delicious! Somehow i managed a piece of Tiramisu...yum! If you go to Napa...enjoy!
