Inspired by the modern Italian enoteca, our goal is to serve simple, authentic Italian meals paired with some of the finest wines available from Italy and Oregon. Along with a variety of handmade pastas, our chef uses only the freshest seasonal produce, seafood and meats to ensure each dish has the quality to accompany the wines offered on our list.
From reviews, didn't live up to expectations
The food lived up to the stellar reviews but this was not a five-star experience. The servers were very nice but seemed uncomfortable with questions, almost like they knew they would get in trouble if they brought a question back to the kitchen. Also kind of annoying that they automatically charge a 3% fee for using a credit card and apply it to the bill without telling you. Then they take it off the bill if you see it and decide to pay cash. Also was surprised when we booked the reservation they said they charge $25 per person for no shows. Four people out of our six-person reservation were on a flight that was canceled and they couldn't make it in time dinner. When we called the day before to explain the situation they told us they would charge us $35 a person. When we asked if they could change the reservation to another day, luckily they were able to accommodate us and we ended up not getting charged the extra fee and we appreciated that very much. Still would recommend this restaurant but they have some service issues to work on. Food was excellent!
My husband and I ate here last year when we were staying at the Bandon Inn. At that time, they were still under strict covid restrictions and you could only order food to go. Not a problem at all. We both ordered 2 small Caesar salads and the Halibut w/ Risotto and Broccolini. All of the food was amazing. The fish was perfectly cooked and flaked easily w/ a fork. The risotto had a good flavor and was perfectly cooked as well. We also ordered the Limencello Panna Cotta, but forgot to take a picture of it. It was crazy good! The lady who helped us came across as a little standoffish at first, but then warmed up a lot as we were placing our order. The food came out in an appropriate amount of time and was nice and hot when we got back to our room (we walked there, as it was a short distance from our hotel). We will definitely be back!
Dinner with Music
We dined at Alloro on a Saturday evening and enjoyed not only the food and service, but also the harpist/guitarist. We were were staying at nearby Bandon Inn, only a walk away, which made Alloro all the more attractive. As the other reviews attest, this is a quality setting amongst a more informal town. No need to dress up, but expect memorable dining options, wine and cocktails, too.
Best Italian meal we've ever had!
Stumbled upon this quaint little place - intrigued by the "wine bar" at first because we weren't all that hungry. Little did we know the food would outrank the wine - amazing smells and tastes! We ordered the Pasta Primavera with the best charred/sautéed vegetables - incredible taste bud adventure. Hubs ordered the Shrimp Scampi. I've not been a fan of scampi as it's typically grilled shrimp in just butter (no flavor). The best Scampi I've ever had - delicious flavors! The homemade pasta with both dishes was incredible. The rosemary rolls were delicious, but we only ate one as we wanted to save every space available for the pasta dishes. I couldn't eat all mine, but hubs wouldn't leave without finishing. Great kudos to Chef Susan. Great table service. Highly recommend!!
The Things I Miss
