A true testament on how terrible service can ruin a great meal!! We have been to this restaurant several times and the food is always very very good. We are residents of Venice and it's hard to find a place that serves delicious food consistently. It took our waitress Marianne about 10 minutes to greet us. When she came over... More

This is not our first time here. Went on a busy Wednesday evening around 6:30. There are two areas-dining area plus food bar like area, plus another bar/nightclub type area with jazz almost every night. We sat in dining area. Service was extremely slow. Took 1 hour to get our pizza. Our server was apologetic. Said there was a new... More

We had a delightful evening ! The traditional jazz selections by Kitt and Mike Moran provided easy listening in a warm, friendly atmosphere . Even the owner, Nella Valenti, sang a lovely Italian selection. Afterwards, we all agreeed we would be returning soon to Allegro Bistro!

I had lunch the Allegro Bistro today and although I have lived in Venice for quite a while, it was my first visit. I sat at the bar for lunch and had the lasagna. It was delicious and the potion was heroic! The ambiance is tastefully Italian and the service was impeccable. With live jazz three nights a week, great... More

Went to dinner with our daughter and her husband that were visiting us from Woodstock Il. Thelma was our wonderful server. We ordered cheese ravioli, lasagna, steak salad & ahi tuna salad . All entrees more than enough and unbelievable taste . Nella topped off our evening with singing a few songs . What an enjoyable night . Can't wait... More

We enjoyed a family meal sitting outside . It wasn't busy which was great . The music was soothing as we relaxed and ate our dinner slowly we didn't feel rushed at all . The portions were very large so go with a big appetite . The allegro pizza was awesome ! One family member had the spaghetti and meat... More

New to the area and decided to give it a try. Being of Italian heritage I am particular about Italian food and I have to say this food was not even close to good. Ordered the eggplant parm, sugar int he sauce was overpowering and dish did not live up to true eggplant parm.

Allegro's has good food and good service except when there is music. We have been there for dinner and were disappointed with the service (However, for drinks and listening it ranks high). When we went for lunch the service was excellent and the food very good.

I have dined at Valenti's dozens of times and really enjoy a business or social lunch there. The food and service are excellent. Kudos to the owners for offering Venice an authentic Italian cuisine restaurant that is open for Lunch and Dinner, even in the off season! This restaurant deserves the support of all who live within reach of Valenti's!

My husband and I visited for happy hour. The bar area was very busy with all the chairs /stools reserved, so we sat on a couch. There was a private party close by, so it was extremely noisy. We eventually ordered pizza and sat in a booth at the far end of the restaurant. Our server was friendly and prompt.... More
