Classic Italian dishes such as pizza & pasta come in a romantic yet relaxed bistro setting.- Google

Pretty disappointed. I had been here a couple times before and actually liked the food, but this time it was not good. First of all, if I owned an Italian restaurant I would be sure to cook the pasta perfectly. My ravioli was way undercooked and the sauce tasted worse then store bought sauce. It took 20 minutes to get our salads. My husband got the chicken parm with risotto and that was actually pretty good. Probably won't be back though.

Worst Alfredo ever eaten! White sauce, tough chicken bits, cheese,pasta. No thin sliced bell peppers, no mushrooms, just a thick gelatinous mass of blahhhhhh. I was so hungry I ate it, I was too tired to educate the cook, absolute garbage, I will never ever return. The house Chianti was a Rose' never seen a Chianti so weak and clear, must be watered down. Avoid this place at all costs. The dinning room allows for all conversations to be hears by all,no hint of privacy or atmosphere.

The hostess was friendly and welcoming. The server was awful. For the first time in my life I found a long dark hair folded in my food. He acted irritated and when we asked to open our wine we had brought over from next door wine Crafters he said it would be $10 just to open it.

Do NOT go here... Not even with a groupon. First of all the atmosphere is dirty and outdated, with no music. You can hear the kitchen staff yelling at each other and complaining. Our table was dirty, the window sill next to the table was worse than dirty, probably never cleaned. The bread that comes at the beginning is pretty good. Once we ordered our food took forever to get to us. People who ordered after us were served before us. The food came and looked awesome... But the flavor was... not... Anything. There was no flavor (at all). We ordered scallops with cilantro pasta, and there was ZERO cilantro in the dish. We ended up asking for a different dish (spicy alfredo). The Alfredo was not creamy (isn't that the point of Alfredo?), also no spice only a large amount of Italian seasoning and the chicken was dry and shriveled. We also ordered chicken parmesan. It was ok, but served with vegetables and they were hard as rocks and tasted worse (almost moldy). I love veggies, but these shouldn't even be called that. To top it all off we decided to order desert because it was our anniversary... BIG MISTAKE. We got Tiramisu. Or should i call it "liquid goo". It semi-tasted like coffee and melted whipped cream, with hard bits of lady fingers. When we asked why it was all melted we were told they make it the "authentic bread pudding" way... What????!!! Tiramisu is supposed to be square! We will never go here again. Waste of money and time. Oh also stay clear of the restroom. The floor near the toilet is falling in. I lifted up the rug after realizing the floor felt like it was collapsing, and sure was about to give it. There are structural issues that need to be resolved ASAP for customer safety!

not great..experience..the space seems very husband had spaghetti and got tasted like tomato paste out of the can very acid.. I would say the brochettea was really really good but way too much garlic..and I love garlic..It is still with me this morning. My pasta tasted out of the box ...smoked salmon tasted on the edge I had 3 bites The staff was very friendly and the service was very good...sorry can't go back...too bad-- old town Tigard has a fresh new look...Allegro needs a new look..and the chef needs to up his game...the whole vibe was sad...Maybe they need a grand opening and new menu...I think the chef has talent...but needs new inspiration and maybe pasta from scratch..

We have been going to Cafe Allegro off and on for years. Even before Groupon. We enjoy going for lunch. The food is always tasty and the service is adequate and sometimes excellent. In my opinion this is one of the deals on Groupon.

The chicken burger that I had here was pretty good. The fries are definitely below average. The truffle oil doesn't make up for them. My biggest problem would be the slow service. It took 30 minutes to get my chicken burger when the restaurant wasn't very busy. My girlfriend's salad was good but it was completely drenched in dressing. I might give this place another chance in the future.

If it wasn't for Groupon, I never would've come here. They have a good menu, but it won't blow you away. Great pastas and sandwiches. This is perfect for lunch during work. Especially if you have a Groupon. Great portions. They do take-out. They're very friendly over the phone. Rarely busy, so you'll find a seat every time.
