The restaurant did not honor our reservation request. This was my birthday dinner and I did a lot of research before choosing this restaurant. My boyfriend had to speak with them and tell them it was my birthday for them to give us the table we reserved.

They're happy to cook things to order, i.e. substitute angel hair pasta for garlic mash potatoes. The saffron homemade noodles with mushrooms and prawns were great and no garlic (I'm allergic). Nice wine list. Great salads but they are large so plan on sharing if you're ordering an entree as well. The Napa cabbage salad is a star dish. Dessert fruit crisp, in season, was fabulous or just go for the sundae!

Great lunch. 1/2 cabbage salad plus a half order of a pasta dish. Enjoyable cocktail. However, the best by far and a main reason for choosing this restaurant is the bread pudding w whiskey sauce, nice size serving, served warm. Absolutely delicious. ☘️😃

The service was excellent! Everyone from the hostesses to the server to the manager was so nice and attentive. We arrived a little bit early for our reservation (reservations are a must) and there was no real waiting area, however, we didn't wait long. The 2 person booth was comfortable with room for purse and/or jacket. The food was delicious! Would definitely go again!

My wife and I visit Napa for the day and wanted a restaurant within walking distance from the Napa Inn to downtown. Yelp gave us some good ideas about this restaurant and the price looked reasonable. Upon arrival we were checked in quickly and were given a choice for seating: inside or patio. It was a warm evening so we chose outside seating. We were given a table by the plants, very comfortable. As soon as we sat down, we were served bread and water, so considerate and comfortable! The server ( I forgot her name) was very attentive and welcoming. We ordered angel hair pomodoro and rigatoni with italian sausages. The presentation of the food was good looking. The sauce was good but a tad too salty for our taste...but we finished it all anyways. For dessert we shared a berry mix crisp with vanilla ice cream in the middle. It was very delicious indeed. Overall, we were satisfied with the service and the food. The atmosphere was welcoming. And it is only a short distance to walk to the river front, especially good walk after a big meal!!!

Dinner with the wife for our anniversary. Staff was great. They let my wife pick our table. Food was great. I had the veal with mashed potatoes and spinach. Wife had mushroom ravioli. Desert of cheesecake and chocolate mouse cake. Had a few glasses of Jameson Ranch Cab. Everything was great. We love this place.

Although we dined outside on the patio, the inside of this restaurant is very pleasing. The food has never disappointed, however, I could not rate the friendly service top notch because this day the salad dressing was forgotten and our waters were not refilled quickly on a very warm day.

Allegria is a favorite restaurant and I will continue to go there.

Fantastic meal! We were celebrating a birthday and an anniversary while on a trip with friends. We were treated to a glass of sparkling wine for our anniversary and a delicious blackberry cabernet sorbet for my birthday. The staff was friendly, helpful and very attentive. The food was exceptional. We shared the beef carpaccio and mushrooms over polenta as appetizers. Highly recommend both. We also shared the Napa cabbage salad. Delicious! My entree was the mushroom ravioli and my husband had the teriyaki skirt steak. Our friends were happy with their entrees as well. It was a phenomenal meal and a special evening.

The food here was spot on. The calimari was lacking seasoning but the crab cakes were spot on. Wine recommendation was spot on. The 3 of us had 3 different pastas and the came out fast and tasted so good! Definitely adding this place as somewhere to go back to.

Dessert was also fast and very good.

Our reservation was on time, the service was great. Noise level was terrible. We had to lean in to one another for conversation. Too much sauce on the pasta meal and too much dressing on the salad. Possibly serve both sauce & dressing on the side. Food was a B-. Bread was definitely not bakery quality. We would not return for dinner. Possibly for lunch or happy hour if we could tolerate the noise.

We had a hard time getting service. It appeared that our server was busy, which is understandable, but we were never even greeted, told we had a server who would be right with us, or acknowledged. Then they tried to apologize with an appetizer which tasted and looked as though it had been sitting under a heat lamp for a very long time. We did enjoy the carpaccio but decided to cut the dinner date short and left after our appetizer.
