Best restaurant in Chattanooga! Very good wine list, and the food is fantastic! Sign up for the mailing list and get announcements about the family style dinner they do each month. A really good value.

In the world of Chattanooga Italian this restaurant is great and it's premium (high prices). The service is solid, atmosphere inviting and warm. We made reservations and at early (6PM) we were seated right away. We had a large high-walled booth; comfortable seats but stiff...More

Fancy restaurant with some trendy food. We went on a Wednesday night and the restaurant was still very full but the space is well setup for a quiet meal.

This is a great place for good and unique food (try basil ice cream). Mt husband loves beef and doesn't eat seafood or cheese/Italian and he said the steak was the best ever. I love cheese and seafood and loved everything I have had there....More

Thoughts of opening an additional concept in the southside of chattanooga stirred in 2004. chef lindley wanted to explore true rustic italian, but incorporate regional flavor. exceptional ingredients imported from italy and quality produce delivered from local farms make this vision a reality. situated in chattanooga's rejuvenated southside neighborhood, alleia resides in the old harrington building. the fulfillment of chef daniel lindley's dream of offering simple, italian inspired cuisine opened its doors in april 2009. chef lindley's latest venture is a unique interpretation of rustic italian cuisine, using local ingredients to create an evolving menu. alleia boasts seven types of house made pasta and a custom brick oven that reaches 750 degrees for pizza making. remarkably designed by rodney simmons of revival studio, alleia captures the warmth and comfort of a traditional trattoria, while breaking new ground in present-day restaurant design. trimmed in 300 year old wood taken from the harrington building, the space can seat 150, including a striking communal table that seats 32. the porch at alleia marries the best of al fresco and indoor dining. featuring a generous wraparound banquette, climbing jasmine and views of lookout mountain, the porch provides reprieve from the bustle of the southside. please enjoy.
