I had dinner at Via Allegro on January 30th last year after finding out about being a Grand Award recipient.
I had the 5 course meal with optional wine paring. (not cheap!)
My wife had an appetizer and dinner.
The sommelier did an excellent job picking wine for her. Mine was obviously already choosen for me.
Overall my dinner was excellent. The wine chosen with my meal was very good but not great.
For my wife, the Ectasea dinner was terrible. The tender shrimps and scallops were essentially burned on too hot a grill. Her wine selections were excellent as she had the opportunity to taste 6 different selections prior to choosing her two glasses.
Would I go again? Yeah probably, but be prepared to pay an arm and a leg!
