This place is way overrated. I've been to this restaurant 3 times in the last 3 years and each time I keep wishing it will be better, and I'm disappointed each time. I went this time with a bunch of coworkers and most of us were unhappy with our meals. I got the angel hair pasta with the shrimp, my... More

I took a work colleague here to try something new. The host and wait staff were fantastic even throughout a power failure (storms). Our food was excellent and the waiter extremely attentive. They have some superb dishes that you'd be hard pressed to find elsewhere like the bacon wrapped quail. I recommend the ravioli dish and the fried broccoli with... More

I still crave their bruschetta and veal/pasta dish. The flavor combinations are spectacular. Everything about this place is fantastic. - The food is amazing - The venue is a beautiful atmosphere, serene and romantic. - The service was spot on! You will not regret visiting. They do offer valet, which I would recommend otherwise their is a pay parking lot... More

Wanted a nice meal on our last night in the US so headed here with our two little kids. Absolutely adored it. As soon as you go past the black drape curtain you're in an incredibly trendy room - great decor and ambience. Very New York. Even though we had the children with us staff were great and we felt...

My wife and I went to Alleia for dinner recently while on vacation in area. The inside of restaurant is modern with interesting art pieces. The food was great. The portion sizes are huge. I had the penne bolognese and had plenty for two people. My wife had the margarita pizza. The pizza was simple yet so good. The way... More

I cannot even say enough good about this place. We had an exceptional experience from the wait staff to the food and atmosphere. The place is decently large with soaring ceilings and an open kitchen but it feels very intimate. The food is just so unique and most of the pasta and sausages, and all of the gelato, is made...

We had a wonderful server, Carrie, to guide us through a delightful dining experience at this charming restaurant specializing in Southern Italian food. Carrie suggested we order 2 dishes from each of the offered courses and share among the four of us, so we did, except we did not order the meat course. YUM! Antipasti: *Fried calamari with lemon wedge... More

Fun place to relax and have dinner. Definitely a good vibe. Fun menu with different options. Would also be great for just hanging out and having a drink in the bar area. Lots of different seating styles from tables for large parties to couches and comfy chairs for drinks. Bartenders and waitstaff are cool and friendly. Will definitely go back... More

Description
Thoughts of opening an additional concept in the southside of chattanooga stirred in 2004. chef lindley wanted to explore true rustic italian, but incorporate regional flavor. exceptional ingredients imported from italy and quality produce delivered from local farms make this vision a reality. situated in chattanooga's rejuvenated southside neighborhood, alleia resides in the old harrington building. the fulfillment of chef daniel lindley's dream of offering simple, italian inspired cuisine opened its doors in april 2009. chef lindley's latest venture is a unique interpretation of rustic italian cuisine, using local ingredients to create an evolving menu. alleia boasts seven types of house made pasta and a custom brick oven that reaches 750 degrees for pizza making. remarkably designed by rodney simmons of revival studio, alleia captures the warmth and comfort of a traditional trattoria, while breaking new ground in present-day restaurant design. trimmed in 300 year old wood taken from the harrington building, the space can seat 150, including a striking communal table that seats 32. the porch at alleia marries the best of al fresco and indoor dining. featuring a generous wraparound banquette, climbing jasmine and views of lookout mountain, the porch provides reprieve from the bustle of the southside. please enjoy.
