Perfect thin crust pizza joint & holiday comfort food

When traveling with kids you cross your fingers there will be a great local pizza place where you can be sure they'll eat more than a few forkfuls. This is it and more. We found the food in Galle to be pretty good, but little ones can be picky. We popped in hoping for a quick bite for them... read more

Thin, crispy base. Fresh ingredients. I had the vegetarian one which was delicious. All pizzas about Rs1000 (c £5). Very good value. Friendly, unpretentious place. Recommended. Free WiFi, a bit slow but they say they are doing something about that!

We ate here a few days ago and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The service was on the whole very friendly and the waitress was well informed about the menu, which was very helpful for choosing the hidden gems of the restaurant.

Lovely little Italian place linked to Forteleza up the road. Quick service for the hungry kids, great pizza and a pleasant relaxed ambiance. If you have eaten enough curry and rice for the time being, go here!

Not a fan of trip adviser!! But must say that this was the best pizza I’ve eating in a long time. Music was good, service was good and I had a good laugh with the staff. I’ve tried most places in The Fort. This is my favourite!!!!

After several curries, pizza at Allora was a pleasant change. The pizza was as good as any I've had in Italy. The staff and especially the manageress were pleasant and attentive which made the experience all the more enjoyable. Allora is a must!

My wife and I had the spaghetti bolognese and pizza margarita. Both were very tasty and were made with fresh homemade ingredients...we were pretty surprised! The portion size is a bit small for the average large Westerner. i could have eaten 3 bowls easily. Being the only table there, the service was quick and friendly. We would definitely go back.

Perfect place to go for a relaxed pizza or pasta. The menu is not big but fits the bill and it was nice to fine a menu that did not include rice and curry. Pizzas are well made and thin crust. Try the spicy meat, its very good. Staff friendly and atmosphere is lovely. Will defiantly r.eturn
