This is my second visit to Allegria and it was just as good as the first visit. Excellent Italian food! We each had pasta and it was perfect. Plus the salad was excellent as well.

I love the ambience of this place. Cozy Italian. Our server was fantastic and the rigatoni was delicious. My dining partners were vegetarian and they were blown away by the leek soup special and enjoyed their mushroom pastas. They were happy with the riesling and I was happy with my half bottle of Chianti, which was a great value at $27. Delicious meal, great staff! Thank you!

We had a delicious dinner here. Went there to meet with a friend we had not seen in quite a while. It was easy to talk, not too loud. And the food was delicious. Great pasta and great sauce.

My wife and I were looking for a downtown restaurant for a nice dinner before a show, that wouldn't break the bank. I think we were successful. Good location on First Street walkable to most everything downtown. The building used to be a bank, so it is interesting inside and out. The wine list wasn't exhaustive but had a good variety of quality wines. We started with the calamari appetizer, which was simple but well done. Nicely salty, not too rubbery, and the batter stayed on. My filet was tender and tasty, if slightly overdone. It came with both a gorgonzolla butter and a port reduction. Both were delicious, but each diluted the other. My wife had the veal with caper sauce. She had no complaints. The wait staff was friendly and efficient. I can see us going back next time we're in Napa.

Service was courteous and fast. Almost too fast. Very loud interior, doesn't seem like it's a good date-night place. Food was pretty average, not bad but nothing special. We were looking forward to some good Italian food, this was pretty meh. So many places to eat just in downtown Napa and nearby, we wouldn't come back here....

What a pleasant surprise this restaurant is! We needed to find something near Oracle on a rainy Sunday before the game. This exceeded our expectations with lovely service, tasty pasta and great wine. The ambience is great for conversation and enjoying company. Love the head chef/manager when he came over to check on us. Truly delightful

We both enjoyed our dinner; nothing exotic but good Italian cuisine . Our entrees were well prepared and tasty; tiramisu was the best I’ve had in a while. Would definitely recommend if looking for a downtown Napa location.

My husband and I, along with our 11-year old daughters came here for NY's eve dinner. It was recommended by a close friend who is a local and knows my taste. For a NY's eve meal, this was really wonderful. The lobster ravioli was so good (and they used gluten free pasta, per my request, due to my child's ailment). Our waiter was super attentive and pleasant and though everyone looked super harried, he did not make us feel rushed. It was on the energetic side, being it's NY's eve. Pretty setting too.

Food was very good, but wine selection wasn’t up to par with other Napa offerings. Service was excellent and nice ambience. Both my wife and I’s wine tasted flat, and even the couple next to us sent theirs back.

Nice atmosphere in an old bank building. Nice dining upstairs. Waiters were attentive and service good. The food was good and the pesto gnocchi was good. My sun-dried tomato pasta was average. The angel hair pasta with fresh tomatoes and shrimp was a bit above average but the tomatoes were over cooked. The pasta was cooked perfectly but it did not taste like fresh pasta, just regular pasta.

Great location, ambiance and service! Kids friendly! A nice place to have dinner if you avoid their pasta dishes. My hubby ordered papardele and they were sticky (like one solid block of pasta). He kindly asked for a replacement with bologness to get a some not al denté pasta swimming in a plate full of red sauce.

This is a tourist trap designed to lure in visitors to Napa. The food is very average to subpar. The wine list is limited although there are a various price points, but the quality of those wines such as a Cabernet at $38 for a half bottle was awful.
The host could not find my reservation with open table for 10 minutes and almost turned us away. I ordered the recommended Manhattan cocktail and would have to say it was the worst I have ever had. I told the waitress I did not want to place my entire order because I didn’t want courses served until I was ready. She pressed the point saying this would help expedite service and she would not allow dishes to be created and sit waiting or have them served before I was ready. This turned out to be a complete disaster and the waitress didn’t seem to recall this discussion. Avoid this place!

This restaurant has great ratings, but I am not sure why. I got the very popular pappardelle with mushrooms and shrimp and the noodles were overcooked with no flavor and the shrimp was way overcooked!! Not good at all. My boyfriend ordered the mushroom ravioli and it was much much better than mine.

They were sweet to give us an anniversary treat so we appreciated that, but I expected much more in terms of food

Not impressed sorry. Loved the old bank architecture but the inside wasn’t comfortable seating. The food nothing to write about. Just ok in my opinion. When I’m spoiled & eat at some of the best restaurants in St. Helena where I live, I can’t help but be critical. I won’t be back.

I was very disappointed with the service I received during my most recent visit. I’ve been coming to this restaurant for years and have always enjoyed it. My friend and I were celebrating a special event and decided to eat at our favorite spot. For some reason on this specific night the service was significantly slow and it wasn’t busy at all. We wanted to order appetizers but since our server took very long to greet us we just decided to place our order. Our food came out very quickly but our server didn’t check to see how everything turned out or if we wanted to order anything else. After we finished our meal it took approximately 23 minutes for another server to see that we needed assistance and we explained how we just wanted our check so we could leave. I’m not sure what happened this evening and if the server forgot about us but it wasn’t very memorable and it was very disappointing.
