Stroll through the re-creation of Romeo and Juliet’s tunnel, affirm your vows in our European inspired wedding chapel and toast your event in elegance within our courtyards, gardens or grand ballroom, all while savoring the culinary delights of the region. Allegretto is the perfect destination to create a memorable experience for you and your guests.
