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! And one order of them as an app is enough food for a meal. Got the blueberry bread pudding with vanilla gelato and some fancy toppings... More

I have been there several times, both dining room and more recently the bar. The food is consistenly good and we've had some very friendly, attentive service in the bar, but the wine list looks like it was created by a distributor. An Italian restaurant should have a little more Italian wine variety than the standard Chiantis plus an Amarone... More

We really appreciate you taking the time to review Allora and we're very happy to hear that you enjoyed the restaurant. Our wine list does have a lot of Cabs because we do cater to our guests requests, although also try to carry popular Italian varieties for our guests to choose from. Please let me know when you return and... More

My colleagues and I took a small group of clients for lunch here on Wednesday. We sat on the outside patio, overlooking the beautiful lake, which was breath taking. Everyone enjoyed their choice of appetizers, entries and drinks. Overall, it was a fantastic gathering. The service staff were very attentive and accommodating, and the food is top notch. What a...

Allora offers a selection of appetizers, salads, and delicious entrees including traditional Italian and American choices. Each delicious entrée is expertly prepared and perfectly served. Desserts are outstanding! The service is also outstanding -- attentive and unobtrusive. The dining room is rather dark but beautifully set. The terrace/patio would be lovely in warm weather and much brighter. Quite expensive for... More

A group of us had dinner here in mid-Sept. While on business. My main course was lobster couscous. It was ok but the lobster was a little tough. Dessert was fantastic - bread pudding and a huge helping for 2😋. Martinis are also very tasty with many types to choose from. I would definitely return but would stick with traditional... More

Adequate menu variety and reasonably good quality but way over priced for the level of quality you get. Ambience was average. Service was fair.

I had lunch at the bar this past week and the bill came to $50.29. It wasn't fabulous, and the service was not very attentive, but I still left a $10.00 bill as a tip. The charge just hit my statement and the bartender helped himself to an extra $5. He really didn't deserve the $10 I left him, but... More

I am so sorry that your credit card was charged and extra $5 for a tip that you did not authorize. It was an honest mistake on the part of the bartender and I credited your card immediately upon reading your review. It is very upsetting to hear of any negative experience at Allora. We always strive to exceed our... More

For months my wife and I had been looking for an opportunity to visit Allora Restaurant, and when we finally did we were delighted. We arrived just before sunset on a warm summer evening and were immediately seated on the lovely outdoor deck overlooking a lake. Sipping prosecco as we watched the sky turn brilliant colors as the sun sank... More
