The food is good, but hey, this is Marlborough, not New York City. The prices are high. The quality is good.

Consistently good food and nicely made cocktails. I get to Framingham on business several times a year, and I always drive to Marlborough for dinner at Allora. Pastas and seafood are very good. Fresh oysters are excellent. Try the osso bucco. Enjoy!
