The food was excellent. The server tended to focus on other customers and we didn't even get the slate with wine list so we drank water. I had planned on getting wine but seems like she didn't care for us as customers. The stuffed fish was excellent but would have been better with wine. It was my first experience there since I just moved to New Bedford.

Placed a large order of food for a family event and it was ready for pick up when promised. All the food was outstanding and still hot when served. I will definitely use Allianca for future events as well as dining in the restaurant.Food: 5/5

The food here is wonderful the young man that works here should not be working with the public. He’s very offputting. You ask him a question, and he doesn’t even stick around to hear the full question. He walks away from you as he’s answering you, it’s very rude.Food: 5/5

This little restaurant is a hidden gem if you like Portuguese food! Homey European Cafe style dining and a lounge area. I suggest reservations for Fridays and weekends. Daily specials are awesome and the prices are very reasonable. They also have my favorite dessert.. Passion Fruit Mousse. Soooo good!Food: 5/5

Oh wow, what can I say, one of the best portuguese restaurants, not just in new bedford, but that I've ever eaten at. I met the owner yeaterday and she is kind, and present, when you speak with her, she speaks with you. Even when she was busy she wasnt to busy to take care of you. Did I mention the food was amazing?Food: 5/5


Tried it for the 1st time, and I'm so glad that we did. New favorite restaurant as the service is amazing. Nice gem of a find and will be going back. It's no wonder they are always busy. You are definitely going to enjoy the food.

First time trying this place with my husband and brother. The experience exceeded our expectations. There may be a wait for your order, but to us, it was worth it. The food was delicious, fresh, and nicely presented, something we truly appreciated. Our server was very attentive and pleasant as well. I had the grilled codfish with double veggies instead of the carb options. My brother had the surf and turf and my husband the T-bone with extra veggies instead of the carb options. We also ordered the littlenecks garlic style.The dessert menu list was impressive. Unfortunately, we declined as my husband and I are on KETO. However, it will be the first place we'll go to for dessert as soon as we take a break from it.Highly recommend this place!Note: Dinner reservations are a must as seating is limited.

Great food with excellent service, the owner came to our table to check on us. The servers were attentive. Portions are large, and steaks are mouth-watering. You can't beat the prices. I will go back, and I highly recommend it to anyone who wants authentic Portuguese food. Oh, by the way, don't forget to order Portuguese soup. Thank me later :).
