    We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Great way to celebrate an anniversary. The service and food were equally amazing. I had just been there the week before with coworkers so I had to come back with my wife. Now I’ve had TWO great experiences.

    Did dinner at Allora for the first time to celebrate a new job for my boyfriend and it was worth every bit of it! The experience, food and service were immaculate. We both chose 5 courses and had a couple of cocktails which were perfectly crafted. Everyone was kind and informative, making us both feel comfortable. Highly recommend Allora.

    We made reservations here for our anniversary. Where to start - first off the service is phenomenal. Even though we had a reservation for indoors the hostess asked if we had a preference and showed us outdoor seating so we could compare. We opted for indoors because the decor and ambiance is beautiful. We both chose the 5 course menu. Every dish was delicious and aesthetically presented. Highly recommend the carne crudo, pork belly, fettuccine and lamb. We will definitely be coming back.

    Four of us went to dinner at Allora’s for a special occasion. This was our sixth visit to this restaurant but sadly our least favorite. The first time we went we were thrilled with the food which was interesting, unique for Sacramento, and well prepared. My biggest frustration is that the menu has remained very static. It’s also a very rich and heavy menu which I find difficult to eat, especially when you’re sitting outside in the heat. We started with cocktails which were excellent. They also have interesting wines by the glass but they are quite expensive and a fairly small pour. My favorite dish on this hot evening was the “ salad” of beets and strawberries. (I have never seen a lettuce salad on their menu.) While they do have a vegetarian menu, most of the vegetarian dishes have a few bites of vegetables accompanied with cream, butter and either pasta or rice. While it does taste delicious, it’s not going to help your cholesterol level! For a mid June menu I was hoping to find some lighter dishes. The duck egg with morels, polenta, braised greens And gremolata (odd choice for summer) Was surprisingly bland. The Fazzoletti pasta with sweet corn was delicious, the gnocchi were also good. But the vegetarian risotto was Light on vegetables and too rich for any of us to eat. The lamb with apricots was delicious, the squab was just OK. Allora usually excels at desserts and both of their sorbets were fabulous. The Galaktoboureko was also good. The Torta al Cioccolato had great dark chocolate but The accompanying cherry “meringue” was strange. One of my dining companions described The bright pink fluff as tasting like cough drops. I was thrilled to be able to end the evening with an excellent iced decaf latte made with nondairy milk. It always surprises me how many high end restaurants do not have decaf espresso or nondairy milk options. Kudos to Allora. We won’t give up on Allora, but we will probably check the menu in advance before making our next reservation.

    Wow!!!! We dined at Allora for Father’s Day and what an amazing experience. The service was impeccable. Knowledgeable about the dishes, attentive but not overbearing. But the food was amazing. The Pulpo appetizer had succulent, soft segments of octopus. The fettuccine pasta had generous portions of lobster and prawns. The scallops were gently seared but still tender and moist. Some chefs ignore the side dishes but the yam ricotta gratin with the lamb was outstanding. Sure, a bit pricey but Allora has emerged as a leader in fine dining in Sacramento.

    We celebrated our 28th anniversary here on Allora’s lovely patio… Everything, from the personalized menus, best martini I have ever tasted, through each of the leisurely five courses we chose, to a perfectly brewed cup of cappuccino, was perfection! We arrived a little early, so sat at the bar and thoroughly enjoyed the mixology expertise of the bartender, the jazz piano music and the hip vibe of the venue! Our hostess checked in with us throughout the evening, too! Our waitress, Caroline, was fabulous, very knowledgeable, attentive and engaging, and the server who delivered each course described each in detail. The cuisine was a foodie’s dream come true! Allora was a perfect place for our anniversary date night! We are from Arizona, but when we are in town visiting family, we will make it a point to return!

    First time back at Allora since before COVID19 shutdown. Great menu and we liked the new menu with the prix fixe options. All dishes were well prepared and presented. We were very impressed with how all the seafood was cooked exactly right (Polpo, lobster fettucini, scallops). Service was excellent, without hovering. Prices are way up and the tips and service charges are included in the final bill. I don't like forced tipping and prefer to decide the tip based on my meal experience, so this was a negative for me. However, I would have tipped the amount they included in the bill.

The multi-course meal and wine pairing is definitely worth every penny for a meal. I recommend starting and finishing the meal with the most creative cocktails I have ever had anywhere.

    They greeted us with a personal greeting and a menu which said “happy anniversary”. That was a nice start! We really enjoyed all of the courses at Allora, and we sampled 9 of them between the 2 of us. My favorite was polpo with gnocchi. My wife’s was between the lobster pasta and the scallops. I would say the only misstep was my squab coming out lukewarm, which made it my least favorite dish of the night. Service was very professional, but the timing was a bit slow in between certain dishes, and the plates were presented by a server other than our waiter. Almost there!

    Food is mediocre at best. I’d expect more creativity and better flavor with the price point. Everything was over salted and I couldn’t even eat a couple of the dishes. Best part of the meal were the soup, crudi dishes, and dolce. Service was excellent and restaurant was beautiful.

    Our table was ready upon our arrival. We were celebrating my husbands birthday. They personalized the menus with a birthday greeting for him. We were given a choice of regular or carbonated water. Menu is a choice of 3, 4, or 5 course option. We went with the 4 course option. We started with a signature cocktail that was very fresh and a nice presentation. Our server was very nice and attentive. We were not rushed during the different courses. The food was beautiful, tasty and very creative. A very enjoyable evening!
