We had gone to this restaurant last year and although the food was good the service was horrible and we decided not to go back. Having received a gift card we decided to try again did so just the other day. The most important thing and change for us was the service was perfect. We enjoyed wines a cocktail chicken... More

I and three other girl friends were at a conference in Marlboro and were going stir crazy, and an elegant meal was just what the doctor ordered. After eating at more "typical" fare in town, our expectations were badly diminished. Allora completely re-wrote them, and in the process gave us a new understanding of Marlboro. The food, the service, the... More

Enjoyed a business dinner there with a larger group. Appetizers, steaks, sides are all spot on. The wine list is pretty comprehensive. Ambiance is cool, especially the huge mirrors on the wall. Love the place and will come back.

If you can get past the prices you'll have a good time and good food. Bartenders are friendly and helpful and food is typically very well prepared. They do use a lot of garlic and their food which doesn't treat me very well but if you ask most dishes can be made without it. And I particularly like there salads,... More

I visited on a weeknight in December. It was busy and as a single, I had to sit in the bar instead of the dining room. Wine was ok but the scallops were excellent. The cut down the beer salad to a half order to start and it was still large. Portions are generous. Service was good. Large menu to... More

Went there on a whim with my husband on our ride home from CT. We were starving! So we ordered the meatball appetizer. Just the smell of them are worth ordering! They were amazing! And one order of them as an app is enough food for a meal. Got the blueberry bread pudding with vanilla gelato and some fancy toppings... More

I have been there several times, both dining room and more recently the bar. The food is consistenly good and we've had some very friendly, attentive service in the bar, but the wine list looks like it was created by a distributor. An Italian restaurant should have a little more Italian wine variety than the standard Chiantis plus an Amarone... More

Please let me know when you return and... More

My colleagues and I took a small group of clients for lunch here on Wednesday. We sat on the outside patio, overlooking the beautiful lake, which was breath taking. Everyone enjoyed their choice of appetizers, entries and drinks. Overall, it was a fantastic gathering. The service staff were very attentive and accommodating, and the food is top notch. What a...

Allora offers a selection of appetizers, salads, and delicious entrees including traditional Italian and American choices. Each delicious entrée is expertly prepared and perfectly served. Desserts are outstanding! The service is also outstanding -- attentive and unobtrusive. The dining room is rather dark but beautifully set. The terrace/patio would be lovely in warm weather and much brighter. Quite expensive for... More

A group of us had dinner here in mid-Sept. While on business. My main course was lobster couscous. It was ok but the lobster was a little tough. Dessert was fantastic - bread pudding and a huge helping for 2😋. Martinis are also very tasty with many types to choose from. I would definitely return but would stick with traditional... More
