When Jeano and Nina Abraham opened Allegro Gourmet Pizzeria in the summer of 1988, they sought to create an authentic Italian experience on the Monterey Peninsula.
A few small restaurants still had some of that old world feeling but they did not have the food their more traveled palates were beginning to expect. Some had it all, great food, great feeling, but were too expensive or trendy to be called “local spots.” They needed a place to come home to – a little "tucked away" spot to discuss life, enjoy good food, family and friends…. and still be able to pay the rent on time.
So in July of 1988 they set out to capture that elusive dream; the soulful pizzeria that exists in every Italian neighborhood. No big deal, just great food, friends and wine. The kind of place that your feet take you to when your mind is not paying attention. And when you get inside, it feels good…like you are home.
A few years ago the Abraham’s developed the Allegro Wine Bar, a place that showcases the best of the Monterey County wine region. They pour exceptional wines from Carmel Valley and Monterey County wineries and vineyards in one place, and create a kind of “Best Of” tasting. The Allegro Wine Bar is one of the only places in Monterey county where you can taste a flight of extraordinary wines from all over our region in one single location.
