We had a large group of 32 and they easily accommodated us. Good drinks and excellent food. Braised short ribs(yum), pasta w grilled shrimp were two things I tried and both were excellent. Service is outstanding!!

Everyone loves this place, but it’s never been one of my favorite Chattanooga restaurants. Wouldn’t say I’ve had bad experiences, just nothing on the menu I’m dying to get back for. Despite this, because other people love it so much, I planned a dinner here...More

The food and service is always consistently excellent. My favorite!! The grilled romaine salad, pork shoulder and short ribs are highlights but we had fish on our latest visit, which was delicious.

I plan my business trips around this restaurant, they are not open Sunday's. It was the most amazing surprise first time dining there, the food is unexpected - meaning - very chic and not what I thought would happen when in the South. Fusion Italian,...More

Haven’t traveled at length in Italy and spent a lot of time in a little Italy in New York as well, I understand how giving a southern twist could make it less Italian, but that doesn’t happen at this fantastic gem of a restaurant! Antipasto...More

Thoughts of opening an additional concept in the southside of chattanooga stirred in 2004. chef lindley wanted to explore true rustic italian, but incorporate regional flavor. exceptional ingredients imported from italy and quality produce delivered from local farms make this vision a reality. situated in chattanooga's rejuvenated southside neighborhood, alleia resides in the old harrington building. the fulfillment of chef daniel lindley's dream of offering simple, italian inspired cuisine opened its doors in april 2009. chef lindley's latest venture is a unique interpretation of rustic italian cuisine, using local ingredients to create an evolving menu. alleia boasts seven types of house made pasta and a custom brick oven that reaches 750 degrees for pizza making. remarkably designed by rodney simmons of revival studio, alleia captures the warmth and comfort of a traditional trattoria, while breaking new ground in present-day restaurant design. trimmed in 300 year old wood taken from the harrington building, the space can seat 150, including a striking communal table that seats 32. the porch at alleia marries the best of al fresco and indoor dining. featuring a generous wraparound banquette, climbing jasmine and views of lookout mountain, the porch provides reprieve from the bustle of the southside. please enjoy.
