Surprise!?!?! The experience I had with Via Allegro a few weeks ago was so similar to the 'Joanne Kates''s article in the Globe, I thought I wrote half of it!! Had equally bad experience with appertizers,linguine alla vongole and wine waiters. So far, all of my friends who visited the place ( no doubt lured by the 4 stars rating of TO Life ) had BAD experience one way or another. Poor soul! some even travelled all the way down from Richmond Hill for the suffering! Why James Chatto still gives it 4 stars really puzzles me?!! Definitely time for a review!!! Agree? Chowhounds?!
