Allegria Ratings and Reviews
Room for improvement
Normally a 5 star experience but this was not a stellar dinner out. Hopefully, just a one night glitch. Will go back and hope things get back to normal soon.
Exceptional Food +Quaint Atmosphere = PERFECTION
Allegria serves incredible Italian food in a relaxed quaint atmosphere with sharp focused service. We started our meal with burrata brushetta that was beautiful and very tasty. The burrata was melt in your mouth tender topped wit fresh tomatoes in a brilliant pesto and balsamic drizzle. The seafood cioppino was unbelievably satisfying and second only to the version I had in Michael Chiarello's Bottega restaurant in Napa. So this is a high standard. Cioppino was full of fresh mussels, shrimp, calamari, clams and a generous portion of house made Italian sausage in a delicious tomato broth. I may have licked the bowl. Just saying... The "penne my daughter likes" is over the top delicious as well. Creamy, rich sauce covers the penne, sun dried tomatoes and tender chicken. Awesome! The restaurant is small and comfortable with a lean, but very sufficient wine list balanced between whites and reds. We enjoyed a very good Sangiovese. Do yourself a favor and dine at this restaurant. You will be very glad you did. I look forward to my next visit.
True Neighborhood Gem
I've eaten here several times now and have never been disappointed. The owners and staff are friendly, inviting and attentive. Every dish is beautifully presented and gastronomically wonderful!! Love this place.
Bravo! We will be back!
I was pleasantly surprised at how great this restaurant was and we will be back to work our way through the menu! The ambiance was nice as well.
Comfortable smaller Italian "nook" in downtown Carbondale. Outstanding food during appetizer, dinner and dessert. My wife and I have been there 4 times now and are hooked. The desserts are made "per order" and take 15 minutes to make in the back of the house.
Excellent find in Carbondale
One of our favorite restaurants in the entire Roaring Fork Valley. The food is as good or better than the top spots in Aspen - but in a cozy, eclectic, and friendly setting (and with more moderate prices). The specials are consistently outstanding - but if you aren't the mood for those the Veiner Schnitzel alone is worth coming in for. The wine list is moderately priced and well selected (though I think a few higher-end choices by the glass would be a good addition). If you are in the area (including Aspen and Snowmass) don't miss Allegria.
Favorite Carbondale spot
We love coming here for dinner. The chef and owner spends lots of time on the floor making sure everyone is happy- he really cares about this! It's good hearty food and a great local atmosphere!
The food was outstanding, and the owners are wonderful and thoughtful hosts, taking the time to really converse with their guests.
Lovely little restaurant in Carbondale CO
We made a reservation through Open Table but when we arrived there was no record of it. The gracious owner was able to switch a few tables around and we were seated. Our server, Michelle, was simply the best - very personable, efficient and professional. The meal was very good from the radicchio salad to the halibut cheeks and lasagna - delicious! This is a small intimate restaurant with minimal seating - some locations better than others. We would highly recommend it!

Our first visit - lovely meal, interesting menu, charming setting. Our server was quite nice but it seemed to take too long to be offered a dessert menu and then to be brought the bill.
Talented chef and crew at Allegria!,
What a great find. Wish we lived close to Carbondale! The competent chef and crew made our dinner perfect. The Saturday night "braise" was delectable and enough for a lunch "go box". The wine was a great match and even finished with the pastry chef's innovative peaches and creAm. A restaurant that offers espresso, too! A delicious end to a day of travel and touring.
Wonderful food, elegant but relaxed atmosphere , very good service.
Great menu great food been looking for good Italian in this area
Best restaurant in Carbondale
Consistently well executed entrees, knowledgeable wait staff, good atmosphere, and gracious owner.
Ranks with the top restaurants in Aspen
We have been going to Allegria since Andreas made his move from Cloud 9 (on the mountain at Aspen Highlands) to his own restaurant in Carbondale. The food is unique, European, farm fresh (sometimes hand picked by Andreas), and consistently delicious. The specials usually feature unique sauces and flavors...while some of the staples, like wiener schnitzel, are terrific every time. The wine list is well selected and reasonably priced...while the atmosphere is eclectic, comfortable (particularly the booths), and lively. Definitely worth a drive from Aspen...and worth avoiding the drive to Aspen when you are in Snowmass or down valley.
Great food/great service
Nice little treasure in Carbondale. Unique Italian dishes (plus the traditional) that had a farm-to-table flair. Lobster bisque to start. Salmon with gnocchi was delicious. They also have gluten-free pasta which was the draw for my wife, AND it was good. Service was personable and attentive. I definitely recommend it. And, we'll return when we're in the area.

Visited August 1 at 6pm. Wonderful menu, but food was not great. Salmon undercooked, and when we questioned it, we were told that it was the way it was meant to be. No apologies. Gazpacho oily and smoky tasting. Other guests said that the fries were undercooked, and meal generally just not good.
What a great restaurant from the service to the food to the ambience. However the food is just outstanding. My husband and I have eaten at a lot of restaurants all over the country including New York and I would put the restaurant right up there with some of our favorite restaurants!! Truly a great fine and will look forward to another time when we are in the Aspen, Carbondale area.
Service was really terrible, food was just ok.
Not worth the price, messed up our food orders, waiter was totally disinterested in serving, food was mediocre. Find somewhere else to eat.

Andreas is an attentive Owner/Chef to all of his guests. Very welcoming and accomodating. GREAT FOOD you can't get everywhere!
The food and the service was very good. However, during the course of our meal, the waiter informed us that we had 1/2 hr. remaining to dine as another group was coming and our table was needed. We had reservations for 6:30 and was not informed that there would be a time limit. The waiter then presented us with a dessert menu which we were order and eat quickly. We declined and felt that this was rude.
We love the atmosphere and friendly staff at Allegria. The food is always excellent.
All over a Great Experiance
A very pleasant and eclectic interior. Wide variety of choices and excelent food. Having chef/owner Andreas involved in all aspects of the operation, including greeting the customers and suggesting/describing the food, brings Allegria to another level.
Allegria -joy in Italian- is what Andreas Fischbacher produces in a small, hopping space on Carbondale's main street. When our dinner was blemished by a kitchen mishap, one order going amiss, the chef-owner-and master of the rings immediately came to our table, and made it all come out right. Don't miss this local gem.

Excellent food and healthy portions. Great pricing especially in comparison to everything else around. Chef/owner is Austrian and is around frequently. Cool spot for Carbondale.
We've brought our young kids once and also been for a date. Both were excellent! Great food. Great wine. Exceptional ambience.
A year ago we tried your place and were greatly disappointed. A rib-type dinner served in a bowl was not edible, and the meat looked to be old. We get mixed-messages from our friends but decided to try again for dinner. The rigatoni was excellent though served cold with not much food for $19.00. The beef my wife ordered could hardly be cut and had to be eaten in tiny pieces. I suggest the chef order beef at Town or The Goat to see excellent meat. (Check out the one review which mentions "grass-fed" beef) I think the atmosphere is outstanding and I hope the place succeeds. Oh, I wonder how many Moscow Mules you put out at $10.00 a throw.
Great restaurant! Reservation problem!
There was a problem as they never received our reservation from open table. I had a confirmation email from you but they were adamant that they never saw our reservation. It was a difficult situation and they were booked all evening. I was embarrassed as I was having a birthday celebration with a friend. They were able to seat us at the bar and they compted us a cocktail but it initially put a damper on the evening for me.
Great local find
Not your typical italian restaurant. Unique but limited menu. All good stuff
I enjoyed my dinner and the wine list was great. It's a little noisy and the service was a bit spotty. Overall, I would recommend and will return on my next trip to Carbondale.
There were 8 of us and we reserved and got a table outside on the deck. The evening was perfect. The service was perfect for our large group and the food was outstanding. The lasagna and ravioli were superb! I highly recommend this restaurant for a great meal.
Wonderful meal, great service, worth driving to Carbondale just to eat here, the owner/ chef came to our table and was quite charming. We will eat here again next trip to Colorado.
Positives: Friendly wait staff. Good bar. Negatives: Reservations made with OpenTable are not garanteed. Andreas will text and either confirm or let you know you he can't honor the reservation you made. I had an extremely tough steak (which was on special) and was unable to eat it. Andreas was unapologetic and stated it was due to the beef being "grass fed." I'm well experience with grass fed beef (having grown up raising them), and this steak's toughness was unacceptable. The lack of acknowledgement that the steak was unetible is not acceptable. Check out the other great places in Carbondale before eating at Allegria.
Wonderful food, great service and atmosphere. We had a fantastic evening
Great find in Carbondale
Love the ambiance of Allegria. We chose to dine inside but diners can opt to sit outside on the street side patio. Specials every day of the week. Spaghetti was delicious. I can also recommend the pheasant. Great menu. Good wine list.
All around great!
Food, service, street scene all contributed to a really nice experience.

Impressive menu, beautifully executed. The halibut was perfection - crisp exterior with moist tender melt in the mouth interior.
The food was excellent. Three of us all had something different and all said it was very good. Service was good and the décor is warm and inviting. Andreas (the owner) came over and greeted us as well as the other diners in the restaurant.
Allegria on a night out
The food, drink selection and company were perfect for an evening out in Carbondale. We will make a night out (@ Allegria) again and again.
This was the first time we ate at Allegria, and had high expectations after eating at Mr. Fischbacker's other restaurants. The food was good, but not great. I would return, but would likely order something else. The meal was a tad tough and underseasoned.
