Definitely not that impressed with this place. Service was very slow, and the decor definitely needs a refresh. Felt like it had been neglected for a long time. It seems to be sort of popular with the local crowd, but there are far better places...More

Our hotel recommended it for pizza. We were crammed into a table and the service was not great, nor was the pizza.

Your son needs an education. Machine cut chemical preserved toppings always look perfect. Just like dog food does.The effort that goes into cutting veggies by hand from fresh bought produce is never as perfect looking. Bigger pieces preserve the texture of the cooked veggies during...More

ESTABLISHED IN 1988When we opened Allegro Gourmet Pizzeria in the summer of 1988, we did so for selfish reasons. We craved an authentic Italian experience on the Monterey Peninsula.The days of pizzerias with sawdust covered floors on lower Alvarado Street were gone. As the small fishing village known as Monterey slowly disappeared so did its soul.A few small restaurants still had some of that old feeling but they did not have the food our more traveled palates were beginning to expect. Some had, great food and a great feeling, but were too expensive or trendy to be called “local spots”. We needed a place to go to – a little “tucked away” spot to discuss life, enjoy good food, family and friends…. and still be able to pay our bills on time.So in July of 1988 we set out to capture that elusive dream; the soulful pizzeria that exists in every Italian neighborhood. No big deal, just great food, friends and wine. The kind of place that your feet take you to when your mind is not paying attention. And when you get inside, it feels good…like you are home.Allegro is a place where you can satisfy your Italian soul. Simple, healthy, delicious & unpretentious. Welcome to our little part of Italy. We hope you enjoy your stay . Nina & Jeano
