    Unforgettable Dining with Friends at Via Allegro Ristorante Recently, my friends and I had an amazing dining experience at Via Allegro Ristorante. The atmosphere was perfect, the food outstanding, and Alex, our exceptional waiter, made the evening truly memorable. Via Allegro Ristorante's inviting ambiance set the stage for a delightful evening with friends. Alex's knowledge of the menu and impeccable service added a special touch to our experience. The food surpassed our expectations, with each dish expertly prepared and bursting with flavor. Via Allegro Ristorante continues to be our go-to place, never failing to impress.

    This was our very first time coming to the restaurant and we were blown away! The food was absolutely fantastic and our server Bernard was outstanding! A little bit of my wine was spilled and he came back with a 3oz glass to make up for the spill, which was very nice and we didn’t expect that to happen at all. He went over our expectations, as well treating us to the delicious crème brûlée dessert at the end of the evening. The entire staff are all phenomenal and we know we will be coming back very soon! As well as recommending to our friends and family to go 😁

    Food was amazing. The place itself was such a hidden gem. The patio is so beautiful! And our service was some of the best we’ve ever had. I think the waiters name was “Z”. Serbian guy. Amazing, friendly, professional, and showed us the cellar and patio after the amazing service

    The service was a bit rushed, Saturday night or not. It would be nice to enjoy a glass of wine before getting rushed to order the full meal. And the waitstaff should always ask the customer if they can remove their plates before sweeping in and clearing the table. Maybe we weren’t finished? But still my favourite restaurant in Mississauga.

    I went back after being there many months ago with my wife and an out-of-town guest. We were greeted nicely and then seated quickly at a table of our choice The server was prompt, friendly, and helpful, guiding us through the menu. We ordered appetizers that were well-presented and tasty The main course came as advertised and also had an excellent presentation Overall, it was an enjoyable experience with above-average service

    It was a first date, and from the moment we walked in, the warm greeting set the mood for an incredible experience. They waited on us as if we were celebrities. Pulling out the chair, to setting out the purse stool. We didn’t wait long at all to place the order in and the food came out promptly, at the right temperature. Flavours were to die for, we ordered the Spanish octopus, the burrata, the rabbit pappardella, the Chilean sea bass, and the tiramisu… and a half litre of a cab-sauv… highly recommend this place for any event. Or even just a simple romantic night out.

    Appetizers included tuna tartare, beautiful presentation and equally delicious; Spanish octopus served on a bed of garbanzo beans with a lovely red sauce and a plate of warm olives with fresh baked bread. Our mains were, a generous portion of lamb chops perfectly cooked served with a side of risotto; beef tenderloin served with a side of heirloom carrots and an interesting potato dish shaped in a rectangle which was crispy on the outside and fluffy in the middle; grilled shrimp with black Tonnarelli pasta in a red sauce . A complimentary slice of chocolate raspberry mousse for a birthday celebration was a nice surprise at then end.

    I feel the price of the food was a bit high vs the taste. Also, despite it was very good, a bit surprising to get humus as an appetizer in an italian restaurant. The foccaccia looked more like a salty brioche rather than actual one. I would still recommend this restaurant as the set up, ambiance and service are very good.

    Our server was very sweet, it seemed like a disney experience with him. He changed our lighting and they let us choose where we wanted to sit. We didn’t feel rushed and they let us take our time with the food. Certain dishes were plainer than others but overall it was a very very great experience.

    Via Allegro is an amazing culinary experience. Everything from the food menu options, cocktails, wines, desserts and service is perfect and so delicious. Also the ambience inside the restaurant is relaxing with beautiful lifelike olive trees and the outside garden seating is a romantic breath a fresh air.

    I took my mother out for a fancy dinner and we decided to go here. They were very helpful in seating us and then we sat for quite some time before we ordered. After a long wait, our meal arrived cold. We ordered the steak for $80 and more and the cod for $80 and more. Vegetables, cold, potatoes cold, and main food cold. We mentioned this to the waiter when he asked us and his suggestion was to reheat everything which I absolutely did not want to do. We also had ordered, a pear and Gorgonzola salad which was mediocre, you could hardly see pear or Gorgonzola in it at all and the salad dressing was very boring. Our bill came to over $300. We were aggravated at being served cold food at such prices! (or any price for that matter ). We were not offered a dessert or a glass of Prosecco or anything,even though The staff knew about the problem. I do not need anything on the house, but it would’ve been a gesture to soothe the pain. It was a Very disappointing experience! At those prices, this type of thing should not be happening. It was clear to me that they were so busy and the food sat for too long waiting to be served. Not a nice experience!

    Been here many times. Took my friend and his wife to the restaurant as it was their first time. I bragged about the amazing Food and service but not sure what happened last night. We were seated at 6:30pm waited 30mins for our drink orders and our mains came out after 9pm. Other tables were served and customer ate and left while we waited for ours. We rarely leave a negative review however this was embarrassing. Amongst several missing food items that we ordered and general lack of attention this was the worse service I received in a long time. The server seemed to not care. We ordered 5 appetizers (only 3 received), seafood tower, 4 entrees and wine so the bill wasn’t cheap. The food however was incredible and of course Wendy (Sommelier) is wonderful. In my opinion Wendy and the food saved the evening. We would give another chance. Hopefully our next visit will be better than this cause we really love this place.
