Last night, I headed out for dinner with my family. Dad had just returned from Hong Kong so we opted not to have Asian food and to try somewhere we haven't been to before. We chose Allegro Pizza and it ended up being a good choice.
We weren't sure how big the servings are so between 6 of us, we ordered some garlic bread, fettucini carbonara (bacon and mushroom in a cream sauce with egg), fettucini salciccia (hot Italian sausage with garlic and chilli), caesar salad and a family size pizza (16 slices). We asked our waitress for pizza recommendations and she suggested we order half pescatore (squid, prawns, garlic, chilli, onions and anchovies) and half connada (chicken, avocado, onions, mushroom, sundried tomatoes and bbq sauce) on our family pizza. She told us the amount we ordered should be enough.
|Fettuccini Salciccia $23.50|
|Fettuccini Carbonara $21|
|Caesar sald $18|
Our pastas and salad came out first (we asked for everything to come at the same time but there was a queue for pizza so our waitress asked if we would like our pastas first) and we were a bit disappointed with the size and wondered if we would actually get full...then our garlic bread and pizza came out...the pizza was huge!
|Garlice bread $7|
|Family size pizza (16 slices) - half Pescatore/hald Connada $37.50|
|Tart Tatin $7.50|
Overall, Allegro Pizza is a casual dining restaurant which I recommend and will happily return to for the food, atmosphere and great staff. The prices are reasonable for what you get.
