Great Find...I cannot believe the negativity in the reviews...we loved this restaurant we stumbled upon. We only waited about 15 minutes w/o a reservation. Our waiter was so sweet and helpful. The food was excellent. It was a little small inside, but I would dine here again! Excellent shrimp appetizer!
AllegriaWe found this place by accident and have since returned twice on purpose. We found the food very good, the service extremely attentive, the decor pleasant if unexciting, the location convenient. It compares favorably to other restaurants in the same price range and we'll no doubt return.
It's mediocre.Nothing special about this place. I think the food is okay. The waitress we had was somewhat pretentious and uninterested in answering any of our questions we had about their dishes. Their drinks are just "blah". I probably wouldn't go back.
lukewarm ravioli, chilly serviceAfter I confirmed the hours of the restaurant earlier in the day, I arrived at the Allegria 35 minutes before closing time. The first thing the waiter said was, "You have to eat fast." This was probably not a good sign, but the Allegria was directly on my walk down Sixth Avenue back to my hotel, so I sat down. I ordered the ravioli special of the day. The dish arrived lukewarm, and frankly, three days later, I cannot recall what was in the ravioli, which were covered in a bland tomato sauce. I guess I must not have consumed it quickly enough, for servers twice tried to take the plate before I finished. I returned to my hotel, wished that my room had a microwave oven. I am not a big consumer of frozen foods, but I'd take Lean Cuisine over this restaurant any day.
Delightful MatchAllegria is a delightful match of food quality, service and value. From out of town, I have eaten there several times over the past year, with only one other person or up to 12, at dinner and at lunch times
