OUR STORY

Mario & Allegra Perez met when they began working together in an Italian restaurant in Santa Monica in 2000. In 2008, they started their first restaurant, Tortuga Bay, which is in Inglewood and features ethnic dishes from Mario’s hometown of Guadalajara, Mexico. In 2017, Mario & Allegra began their second restaurant venture, Corsair Café, located at Santa Monica College. Corsair Café offers a healthy alternative to the usual cafeteria fare – including grilled panini, healthy grab n’ go salads and sides, vegetarian and vegan options, as well as fresh-squeezed juices and Lavazza coffee.

In 2019, Mario & Allegra decided to recreate a similar type of restaurant in which they met: California-Italian cuisine for the neighborhood and families to gather and enjoy locally-sourced meals. Allegra California Café offers healthy alternatives, is vegetarian and vegan-friendly, and of course, hearty comfort foods. We proudly serve Lavazza coffee and have a wide variety of fresh-squeezed juices.

Thank you for visiting our website – we look forward to seeing you in our Café!
