Attended a lovely wedding shower over the weekend. The wait staff was extremely attentive and alert. Atmosphere is quiet which makes for pleasant conversations. Requested a cup of coffee and Ernie the Bartender brewed a fresh pot and 'found' me roaming around. That is service! Food was good. Rissoto was really good. Deserts excellent. I would dine in this establishment... More

Dined at this establishment, for dinner, twice in 5 days and both experiences were wonderful. Seared pork chop on one visit and prime strip on the other. Nice atmosphere for small or medium sized group. Highly recommend the blueberry bread pudding, for desert, as well!

Our food was not only presented beautifully but it tasted very good. There were 3 of us and all of our dinner meals were very tasty. We sat in their outside area and the experience was enjoyable.

I and three other girl friends were at a conference in Marlboro and were going stir crazy, and an elegant meal was just what the doctor ordered. After eating at more "typical" fare in town, our expectations were badly diminished. Allora completely re-wrote them, and in the process gave us a new understanding of Marlboro. The food, the service, the... More

Enjoyed a business dinner there with a larger group. Appetizers, steaks, sides are all spot on. The wine list is pretty comprehensive. Ambiance is cool, especially the huge mirrors on the wall. Love the place and will come back.

If you can get past the prices you'll have a good time and good food. Bartenders are friendly and helpful and food is typically very well prepared. They do use a lot of garlic and their food which doesn't treat me very well but if you ask most dishes can be made without it. And I particularly like there salads,... More

I visited on a weeknight in December. It was busy and as a single, I had to sit in the bar instead of the dining room. Wine was ok but the scallops were excellent. The cut down the beer salad to a half order to start and it was still large. Portions are generous. Service was good. Large menu to... More

Went there on a whim with my husband on our ride home from CT. We were starving! So we ordered the meatball appetizer. Just the smell of them are worth ordering! They were amazing!
