Came here tonight with friends, we live nearby but hadn't been here. First, the food, so good, and super reasonable: We had the meatballs, beet/burrata salad and asparagus for apps, all delicious. A mix of pasta and secondi (filet mignon and lamb) and it was all gorgeous. Great, very reasonable wine list, tiramisu was so yummy. Second, the service was amazing. Can't wait to come back.

A group of us recently had dinner at Allegro Romano and I'm thrilled we did! Their food is authentic and delicious, the location (in Russian Hill) is very convenient (at least for all of us), and the setting is intimate and comfortable. As a group we sampled nearly half of the menu and we were all impressed. The Beef Carpaccio Steso, Asparagus Parmigiana, and Beet & Buffalo Mozzarella "Caprese Style" were all terrific starters. And the Fettuccine with Wild Boar Bolognese I ordered as my entrée was exceptional. Having tried a bite of nearly all of their desserts, I find it very difficult to choose any one as my favorite. They were all delicious, if a bit too much at the end of our wonderful meal. Our service was a bit rushed (and a tiny bit impatient), but don't let that very minor point discourage you. If you are in the neighborhood and want an authentic Italian dinner, don't miss the opportunity to eat at Allegro Romano!

Located on Russian Hill, this intimate Italian restaurant offers it all. The wine list offers excellent choices of both foreign and domestic wines by the bottle or by the glass.
Start off with either the Caprese or roasted beets with buffalo mozzarella.
The pastas and risotto are excellent, but our favorites are the dover sole and branzino.Top it off with one of their excellent deserts.
Service is attentive without being oppressive.
We have been coming to San Francisco for over 20 years, but just discovered this gem three years ago, and have been coming every year since.
Because of the small size, reservations are a must.

We recently visited our favorite neighborhood restaurant , Allegro Romano.
As usual, we loved the Italian dishes starting with excellent first courses followed
by truffle risotto and truffle fettuccine. Both were delicious!
Our grandchildren were delighted with the meatballs and pasta. As great as the meal was, what inspired me to write this review was the exceptional service, particularly the special attention by Lorenzo. He was very helpful with
Our grandchildren and made us feel at home. You must experience this restaurant. We will return again asap
