Four of us had dinner here on Saturday and were blown away by the experience. The atmosphere, service and food were top notch. Reservations were tight, but Becky got us a table on the patio! The grilled romaine salad was a new experience and absolutely delicious. The balsamic pork shoulder was tender and full with of flavor. The butternut squash... More

My wife had a doctors appointment in the area and I wanted to take her somewhere we had never been. Somewhere special for an early Valentines day surprise. While she was in her appointment I spent some time online. She loves italian and this place had some great reviews and from the photos it looked to be the perfect spot.... More

Just wanted everyone to know how great this restaurant is and how appreciative we are with the special food allergies/dietary help they gave us last night. My beautiful Valentine really enjoyed the risotto that they cooked especially for her. The Panna Cotta dessert was also really delicious!

Alleia is one of my local favorites. I recommend it to anyone visiting Chattanooga who hasn't tried it. It's got a menu that I can only describe as Italian with a Southern flare.

Celebrating 15 year anniversary. We have been to amazing restaurants all over. This one is right up there. Server Cal was very experienced and knew the menu and wine. Food was amazing - husband had quail and I had short ribs. Portions were perfect. We could not finish all but it was not wasteful portions. Just were full :) We... More

Having frequented Alleia, I have never had anything other than a stellar experience. Recently acquired manager, Connor Cox, is wise beyond his years in the restaurant business. Whether I am there in person with friends or business acquaintances or need to have services extended to visiting clients and friends while I am not present, Connor goes beyond what is required...

Gorgeous space in a trendy part of downtown Chattanooga. Fresh, delicious choices of homemade pasta with savory sauces. Several appetizer options to choose from. Great beer and wine selection. Service was attentive and helpful. We were seated in the bar area which was actually quieter and more cozy.

My fiancée and I had a fantastic meal while visiting Chattanooga. We ate at chef Lindley's Nashville restaurant so this was a must and it did not disappoint. The bacon wrapped dates and quail were smoky and delicious, but the real star of the show was the pasta.

The only sort of difficulty was trying to fit in with the valet system which is cost free. A little confusing in that area. When walking you are greeted well and struck by the décor and ambiance. Exposed brick walls with a bit of plaster still there. I was seated facing the chef's line which is interesting to watch them... More

This is our top pick when we think of dining downtown. The service is always excellent and the food is superb. We love the gas lighting in the front dining room and the table of dripping candles is so unique. Sit near the open kitchen if you want a good feel of the care they take with the food and... More

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.
