The food, service, and environment at this restaurant is always amazing. I’ve had nearly every dish on the menu and have never regretted ordering anything. The lasagna and the lobster ravioli are at the top of my favourites. You will not be disappointed!

This was my second visit to Allegro in the last year or so. The food is consistently amazing - although I had the pesto alfredo during my most recent visit and found it very rich - so keep that in mind. Delicious, but rich. :)...More
