La Verne Italian

cant talk...eating Sep 24, 2007 04:54 PM

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!

    Maybe it's one of these?

      It's definitely La Verne, and plus, several of these threads were old. But yes, I did do a search first.

        The search criteria was "La Verne Italian".

      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.

        Yes, it's Cafe Allegro. My favorite italian spot! I have to drive from OC just to eat there. The Chicken Marsala is the best there!

          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.
