Fun, good pizza, unique for young kids. The "make your own pizza" is a lot of fun for the kids. Dough, sauce, cheese, pepperoni, and a chef's hat combined to make a tasty dish. Pizza is above average, and tasty. Service is painfully slow. Inability to multi-task, and handling one task at a time: s l o w l y... More

My family I visited one afternoon and we where one off 2 tables. That alone should have set the alarm bells ringing, I always think if the quality and food is good a restaurant will have customers. The first thing I noticed is how expensive everything is on the menu, $27 for a pizza, this had better be good. It... More

I'm local. The food is tasty and reasonably priced. I have been going here for years. I have my favorites... the Mediterranean Chicken salad is my number one. Not always on the menu, but I always get it when I ask for it anyway.

This is the best pizza place I have ever eaten in. Went with my daughter and granddaughter today and we had so much fun. My granddaughter got to make her own pizza. They brought her the dough on a pan and the sauce, cheese and toppings in little cups. They even gave her a nice chef hat. She loved making... More

Allegro was just around the corner from our hotel. It was recommended by the hotel staff. We ordered the combination. The toppings were very fresh, the pepperoni had a nice bite to it and the thin crust was just about perfect. The waitresses were very attentive. This is a good place for families because they will adapt the pizza toppings... More

The service was excellent. The food was to die for. The Fettuccine Alfredo with shrimp and scallops was the best I've ever had. The price was a bit steep, but well worth it.

There are plenty of eateries near to the Carmel Mission Inn hotel. We highly recommend the Allegro Gourmet Pizzeria restaurant which is not just for Pizza although nothing wrong with Pizza! The staff were very friendly and the food lovely. Highly recommended.

Wife and I ate here on a recent road trip that started in Carmel and went down through Big Sur. We chose Allego primarily because it was walkable from our hotel (Carmel Mission Inn) and we were tired and not feeling like dealing with parking or crowds in a downtown restaurant. It was perfectly good pizza. No complaints at all.... More

We were staying at the Carmel Mission Inn and saw a guy throwing pizza dough in the rear window of this restaurant from our room. So we went over to check it out. You enter and immediately are in the bar, which is not a problem for me. Staff was nice enough, although later several of them had some sort... More

ESTABLISHED IN 1988When we opened Allegro Gourmet Pizzeria in the summer of 1988, we did so for selfish reasons. We craved an authentic Italian experience on the Monterey Peninsula.The days of pizzerias with sawdust covered floors on lower Alvarado Street were gone. As the small fishing village known as Monterey slowly disappeared so did its soul.A few small restaurants still had some of that old feeling but they did not have the food our more traveled palates were beginning to expect. Some had, great food and a great feeling, but were too expensive or trendy to be called “local spots”. We needed a place to go to – a little “tucked away” spot to discuss life, enjoy good food, family and friends…. and still be able to pay our bills on time.So in July of 1988 we set out to capture that elusive dream; the soulful pizzeria that exists in every Italian neighborhood. No big deal, just great food, friends and wine. The kind of place that your feet take you to when your mind is not paying attention. And when you get inside, it feels good…like you are home.Allegro is a place where you can satisfy your Italian soul. Simple, healthy, delicious & unpretentious. Welcome to our little part of Italy. We hope you enjoy your stay . Nina & Jeano
