My sister-in-law was raving about a small Italian place in La Verne she went to recently, but can't remember the name or the location. Anyone want to throw out a couple names for me to run by her? Thanks!
Yes, Cafe Allegro is a great little place. It was one of my favorite restaurants when I lived in the area a few years ago. I agree, their chicken marsala with almonds is great, as is the chicken canneloni.
I'm sure it was Cafe Allegro. It's in Old Town La Verne, on Third street, just east of D. It's good, though a bit cramped (and kinda loud when it's full). I've eaten there many times. I recommend the farfalle con gamberetti.
