We spent 3 days in Napa and found that Ristorante Allegria was an absolutely wonderful restaurant. We ate there 3 different times. Service was great; food was fantastic;
what a wonderful find. DEFINITELY recommended to anyone looking for a great meal at a
reasonable price. Their Happy Hour is terrific; dinner just as wonderful and lunch - can't be beat. Their Cabbage Salad is fantastic! I miss it already.

Once again,we had an awesome dinner at Allegria. It was so good, we went back the second night with the deal that we all had to order a different dish. It was just as delicious!! I would recommend this restaurant to anyone. The food is very tasty, the service quick and friendly and the price is very reasonable. Will definitely come back the next time we are in Napa!!

First lunch visit, food was good but even the full sized orders were a bit small. I like the extensive selections on the menu. Friendly service. Tables are very close together which kills the ambiance for the most part.

Was hoping for more based on reviews. Outdoor seating was ok, but the only thing separating you from a public square was a thin row of bushes. Could see and hear kids skateboarding. Soup took forever to come before the meal. Swordfish special tasted like a frozen piece of fish I could have purchased from Sam's Club. Overall was not impressed and should have gone to Bounty Hunter - where the BBQ smelled amazing and the atmosphere was fun.

I would recommend lunch over dinner. It seemed that the menu was cut down for dinner. I also would stick with pasta dishes versus going with the special swordfish dinner which turned out to be on the dry side. I had the veal scallopini which actually was veal marsala with capers. The veal was a little tough to where I couldn't cut it with a fork I had to use a knife. Service was a little off that night. Our waitress seemed not to hear what each party wanted and assumed if one wanted a glass of Sav. Blanc the other person wanted the same. The tiramasu was the best we ever had any where.

Had an absolute wonderful dinner here! Upon checking in at our hotel, we scheduled a taxi to pick us us for dinner, the concierege asked where we were having dinner, and told him Ristoranti Allegria, complimented our choice, then he took out a business card, wrote a note on back and said to give to server for a complimentary appitizer that isn't even on their menu. What a special treat! Very delicious! Olive oil and bread for dipping, YUM! They offer a very impressive, extensive wine list, lots of local wine choices. Hubby & I both ordered different pasta dishes and both were excellent! Followed the pasta with tiramisu that was so light and delicious!!! Wonderful server!!! We had wonderful evening here and highly recommend to everyone!!!

Atmosphere was great in this downtown restaurant. The seating was close but not at all a problem. The building began its life as a bank and you can even have a private table in the vault. We went on a weeknight and were glad we had made reservations - the place was full!

Everything was wonderful. The food menu had quite a big selection and everyone in our party said their lunch was tasty and good. The presentation was also a plus factor. So far, this was the best kobe burger that I have had. The pricing was great especially the lunch box feature. This was my first time here and I will definitely go back again and again.

Open Table said the restaurant was booked for the time slot we wanted so we had to arrive earlier than we really wanted to, yet the entire time we were there we saw empty tables. Other than that perfect experience. Food was fantastic, service was good. Wine list was pretty good, but I did expect a few more options on wine for a restaurant in the heart of Napa.

Especially for downtown Napa, which sort of closes after 7pm, this is a great find. It's a friendly, warm atmosphere, with very good food, at very reasonable prices. We paid less for the excellent diner here than we did for lunch at Bouchon earlier in the day. The accordion music is kind of fun; you feel like your in a movie set for the Godfather, and sure enough, there is a poster of the movie in the corner. Great food, price, atmosphere, and a nice pour on the drinks. Go for it, and skip the overpriced places on the "Riverfront".

We were at your restaurant before the Hugh Laurie concert. The waitress was very attentive as well as the busboy who kept the table clear and the water glasses full. The wine recommendation was right on for our dinner at a price that was a great value.

I ate here for the first time on my birthday. The service was excellent & it was followed by great food. There were three people in my party & we couldn't decide whose meal was the best because they were all phenomenal. Then, I have to believe the bartender heard it was my birthday & passed it on because after dinner the waiter brought me a delicious sorbet with a candle! I highly recommend this place! For excellent food, fun atmosphere, great prices & fabulous service. I'll be back for sure!

Everything was great at this restaurant except for our seating arrangement. We had reservations a week ahead of time so its not like we walked in off the street and this is the only area available. We sat immediately behind the host/hostess booth which was separated by a wooden wall on one side and 2 other tables (on top of us) and the bar on the other. My wife sat under a window to the street and I sat with my back to the entire restaurant with the wall to my right (her left). The wall blocked our view of the entire restaurant. My wife could only see the bar and few tables next to it while I could only see the window in front of me. Shame on us for not asking to be seated elsewhere, however, we shouldn't have had to!
