We were raving Italian food one night, and passed this restaurant. We were greeted with smiles and the waiter was a joy to have. We ordered the Sirloin which my husband says is one of the best he has had and I got the Lobster ravioli which was to DIE for. I have been craving it ever since and cant wait to go back. The look of the restaurant had such a great ambiance!

“MUST TRY IT! Delicious food and now under new ownership.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 May 2014

Allegro reopened under new ownership and management early this month. Having seen all the hype on Facebook I couldn't wait to check it out. Turns out the place not only looks great, but the service was great! You can't go wrong with the traditional Italian menu.
If anything there is just too many delicious dishes to pick from.
And if Marcello is serving you, it is a guaranteed great evening.
I highly recommend everyone give it a try!

“It is Not Luna in New York City but Just as Tastey.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 October 2013

For years we would find our way to Canal and Mulberry in New York City to enjoy wonderful Italian diners at Lunas. Unfortunately Lunas is gone, however I have searched for Linguini with Clam Sauce that comes close to Luna's. I think that Allegros is so close it might be better. At $18.00 it is a wonderful reasonable priced experience. My wife ordered Lasanga at $17.00. It was a very generous portion. I thought she would not be able to finish the food but she kept saying "this is delicious." None was taken home. I tried some and I agree, I have never tasted anything better. We started the meal by splitting a Cesar Salad at $8.00. It was wonderful also. Our attentive server gave us two small bread rolls covered with Olive Oil. There was something about the bread that kept my wife saying "there is something in this bread that is delicious." We were attracted to the restaurant by a Dealfinder coupon, but we certainly will be back and pay the full price. Next time I will try the white wine sauce but the red wine sauce is wonderful.
