My husband and I are foodies and we travel a lot. Our plans always revolve around a good meal. The Allegra is our favourite for good quality tasty food. Thomas the owner and chef is a brilliant chef and Cranbrook is lucky to have this wonderful place to eat.

The Allegra is one of our top 5 restaurants. Every time that we have had a meal there, it has always been an experience. The food is prepared with absolute care by the chef/owner that is performing in the kitchen on his own. I love to see the menu changing from time to time, but if a favorite meal has been taken off the menu, the chef (providing he has the time and ingredients) will prepare it for you. It's also nice to see that they also offer gluten free pasta.
The food is complimented by the great staff that work out front. Always a cheerful greeting and always has great suggestions.
Leaving room for desert is a must. Every one of their deserts are mouth watering and tasty.

This is hands down our favourite restaurant in town...maybe even in the world! We go here for dinner often and the kids (now teens) are disappointed to miss out if they are busy and cannot join us. We have never ordered anything off the menu that isn't absolutely fabulous! Our personal favourites are the seafood dishes (that's just our thing!), with the home-made roasted red pepper noodles, but every meal we have tried there has been amazing. The meals are perfect portions and full of uniquely delicious flavours. Their appetizers, soups and salads are all so yummy! And the desserts are irresistible (their cheesecake is heavenly, the mousse so tasty, and my husband who rarely has dessert literally raves about the crepes and the meringue!) The restaurant's one-man chef is incredibly talented and efficient - I have no idea how he can prepare a perfect meal each and every time! The wait staff is always so friendly and attentive. We cannot say enough great things about this restaurant. Nothing compares!

The food here is always top quality. Fresh flavors and wide variety, different than anywhere else in Cranbrook. Their 'dauphine' potatoes are to die for. The spinach and feta bread is also amazing!
The restaurant is a bit small and doesn't offer much privacy away from other guests. I would never bring my kids for fear they would disrupt other diners. However it's a great place for date night and I have never had a bad meal. I love how the chef always greets you as well! Would definitely recommend!

It has been awhile since we visited this gem of a restaurant. The food was of superior quality and further complemented by very friendly and efficient service. Smiles and great recommendations from the servers to scrumptious food paired with a wonderful Malbec, wonderful.
