As usual we sat outdoors and thoroughly enjoyed the weather. Everything was enjoyed by all six of us.

Allegro ambiance is very nice and the waitresses appear to be very customer focused. I've only had one item on the menu and it was very tasty. However, observing the kitchen staff drinking and smoking and looking somewhat unclean and devious, I have a very uneasy feeling about this restaurant.

There were 8 of us who visited this restaurant. We had reservations but once we were seated it took us an hour to get our first drink. The service was simply atrocious and our server was the owner..Bella. When we finally got our food it was horrible. I hate an Italian restaurant that can't make decent Italian food and this... More

Went for lunch here with friends. We all had the lasagna. Boston people expect great lasagna. This was not. Plenty of sauce and cheese but not enough pasta! But the ambiance was pleasant and the service by Caesare (sp?) was great!

Ate at the bar and had the homemade lasagna again, as good as the first time! Rich, cheesy, delicious and a hearty portion! Just like the first time, I had to take half home. One of these days I am going to try something else. Lasagna, bread and a Pieroni draft with tip for $20. Well worth the price. I... More

Although the food was very good, the service was slow resulting in the rating. We went the day after Valentine's Day expecting to be able to get seated without a reservation which we did but the time from entering to leaving was two hours, too long on a night that there were empty tables. Additionally, we were seated at a... More

On Tuesday nights the local jazz club holds their weekly informal performances that feature experienced musicians, either professional or amateur. You need to get there early, like at 5:30, to get a good table, and it lasts until 8:30. You need to call ahead for a reservation for jazz night because it gets pretty crowded. The dinner menu is varied,... More

The celebration of my husbands surprise 65th birthday with 33 attendees was a great night. The restaurant was very chaotic and didn't have the best of service as they didn't have enough staff to cope with Valentine's Day and our party. Service was very slow and our friends had to wait a long time to be served. Tuesday's is their... More

This was the worst service I have experienced in a long time. First table to be seated. Long before 10 others. Last to be served. Limited dinner menu should have meant faster service. No way!
