Working at a hotel I've always refereed people who love Italian food to stop by and enjoy it. It's considered fine dinning but I didn't find the prices to be as high as I expected. My boyfriend and I enjoyed a date night there. I love how they have the lights in the window. Gives it an enchanting touch. Only negative thing I have for feedback is we went in the fall/winter and you could feel a draft throughout dinner. That's all! If you like calamari you need to try theirs. :)

Found this place on TripAdvisor when in town for a couple of days.

I ordered the Bolognese sauce on ribbon pasta and I can't say enough about the sauce. This was perhaps the best Bolognese I've had in years - including visits to Boston's famed North End. The pasta was done perfectly. Did I say the Bolognese was terrific? <g>

The bread served was very good and replenished without having to ask for more. Service was very good.

Bennington has a real winner with the Allegro. When I'm in Bennington again I'll be sure to stop in for a meal.

We decided to go to this restaurant based on other people's reviews. They were right! This restaurant is unbelievable. The ingredients were fresh and the dishes were innovative. The calamari was superb. The price was excellent. I would drive from New Hartford,CT to go here.
Thank you for a great dining experience.

We were in Bennington for just one evening, and though we didn't know the area, were glad we checked Trip Advisor! Allegro is the top rated restaurant in Bennington, and for good reason. Nice atmosphere in a converted antique, brick-walled, downtown building, on Main Street, excellent selection, delicious food, reasonable prices, and good service!

If your in the Southwest corner of Vermont (or the Northwest corner of Massachusetts), give Allegro a try ... you'll be glad you did!

We split the clams, salad, shrimp and asparagus pasta and pork lion, finishing with the tiramisu. All were well prepared and seasoned and cooked properly. The pasta was very good with a very generous portion (could go for three).

The clams and salad makes a nice light meal and the pork loin was cooked to a tender and moist medium.

Well worth returning when in Bennington.
