How's this for harmonizing? You're heading out for lunch away from the paper-pushing hassles of the work week and you find yourself in a quaint, Italian restaurant that seems worlds away. Classical music wafts through the air, while three violins and a piano can be seen right by the bar. Yes, this is a place that stresses harmony, so to speak, not only in how the decor and ambience blends with the cooking, but with how old-fashioned customer service blends in with the frenetic pace that comes with a modern lifestyle.
Traditional Italian Fare
Pastas are primo here – linguine con frutti del mare with clams and mussels is just one of the many dishes to choose from. Try the chicken penne with sun-dried tomatoes or the lumache gorgonzola, with the works; mushrooms, snails, garlic, white wine and gorgonzola cheese. The menu is diverse and interesting, leaving one more reason to make Allegro a restaurant on your must checkout list. Lunch times can be very busy and you’d be well advised to make reservations before heading over. If you live for good pasta, then Allegro will fill you up with your life force at a price that won’t drain you of your savings.
