We have been dining at L'Allegria for over 5 years. This is the very best italian resturant in all of central NJ. They consistently serve authentic, perfectly prepared food. You can not get a better meal!

What an incredible review, Oleh! It means the world to hear you think of our place as the very best Italian in central NJ -- I know there's no shortage of competition. We can't wait to welcome you back again soon -- and here's to many more years of cooking for you! All the best, Saverio Allocca, Owner

So not impressed! For that level of prices, food is totally blend and tasteless. Didn’t even order deserts, since they didn’t look particularly good. One appetizer, two second courses and the bottle of wine - $120 (not counting tips)! Will not be returning.

We recently had a repast at L'Allegria. We told Saverio that we anticipated roughly 45-50 people to attend. When twice the amount showed, the entire staff handled the volume with sensitivity and professionalism. The continuous flow of fresh seafood, delicious pasta and crisp salads was eaten faster than it was delivered. They continue to show consideration of servicing their customers. Thank you to everyone at L'Allegria!!

Providing quality food and service is our top priority—our team will be pleased to hear that you appreciate our efforts. Thanks for sharing your experience. I hope to see you again for a meal!

Did not meet expectations. Food was not worth the price (from a quality and portion standpoint - ordered pork tenderloin and chicken parm). The ambiance is very nice and the wine list extensive.
Response from the owner - 2 years ago
We appreciate your feedback from last year. While we pride ourselves on serving high quality and delicious food, we're sorry to hear that you didn't find our food worth it. Are you able to tell me what you didn't like about your pork tenderloin and chicken parm? We're always striving to do better, and I hope we can show you a better time on your next visit. Sincerely, Saverio Allocca, Owner

We recently hosted an event at L'Allegria and it was great. They were very helpful with the event planning and execution of food and service. The staff is knowledgeable, detail-oriented and it's evident they take pride in what they do. All of our guests commented about how great the food is and said they'd like to visit again soon. I recommend this restaurant for a quiet dinner or an event. Thank you L'Allegria!

Thank you for sharing, Lara! I'm delighted to hear that everyone had an enjoyable evening, and I'm glad that we could be a part of it. It was a pleasure working with you. Sincerely, Saverio Allocca, Owner

My last take-out entree was a few more dollars than stated on on-line menu, no salad and I had to ask for bread. Portion was very small. So for a spaghetti dish and 2 pieces of bread, I paid $19.95, before tip. Servers are pleasant .
Response from the owner - 2 years ago
Thanks for coming by for take-out with us, Meg. What did you order with us? The prices on our online menu should be up-to-date, but I'll take a look into your order. In the future, please feel free to also check with our floor manager if you think you've been charged differently. We want to make sure you leave here fully satisfied and ready to enjoy your food! I appreciate your sharing your experience by leaving us a review. Sincerely, Saverio Allocca, Owner

Really enjoyed their customer service and their appetizers. Great place for couples. Their pasta dishes are worth trying.

Service was impeccable but food was just good. It could have used more pizzazz, more oomph. Wines are over-priced but selection is good.
Response from the owner - 2 years ago
Thanks for your feedback last year! We're grateful for your support, and will definitely take note of your comment. Hopefully, on your next visit, we can serve you delicious food overflowing with pizzazz and oomph! Cheers, Saverio Allocca, Owner
