My husband and I decided to try this restaurant after reading the good review of it in the AAA Guidebook. We enjoyed our meal very much. We especially liked the warm bread and the complementary veal meatballs and garlic bread. Our main entrees were very good, and the portions were large.

We had dinner at Allegro at the recommendation of someone who is local. What a nice surprise. The service was lovely and friendly. The restaurant is old world Italian. We had a lovely salad to start, meatballs which were very tasty which the table shared and individual entrees. The Shrimp Scampi was a nice surprise considering there is no ocean... More

At Allegro's they give you free veal balls in a yummy red sauce as an appetizer , they are awesome, you can also order them! The food s very good and it s the most upscale restaurant in Altoona ! A little outdated and prices are a little high for this area, but worth it!

If you like Italian, don't miss this place. Food, Service, and comfort are a plus. Have it on my "return" hit list.

My wife and I went to the Allegro restuarant on a Friday night. We had high expectations of this establishment as we were told that it was the best restaurant in Altoona. Right out of the gate we were placed in a booth where the wall paper had started to peel at the level of where the food would be.... More

We went to the Allegro this Friday, the 6th of September. We had been in Altoona for almost two weeks and had been told that it was one of the best restaurants in town. In the hotel, we were promised a ten percent discount to that and several other local restaurants. The exterior looked a bit like a charming French... More

Went for a birthday dinner, hadn't been there for several years. What a disappointment! One of us had the crab cakes dinner, the other had stuffed shrimp scampi. Our bill totaled nearly $60 (no drinks, just the meal). To our SHOCK, they charged EXTRA for salad that SHOULD have come with the meal. I still have trouble believing that an... More

My wife and I recently went to the Allegro. The hostess tried to seat us where the server traffic would be annoying. We asked the waitress if we could be moved and we changed seats. The hostess showed up and said that our new table was 'reserved' for customers that always dined at the table we chose (no reservation sign... More
