Had a very nice dining experience with some friends. It was a nice clean place with very friendly staff. They cook a lot of the food in a pizza oven. I did not like the oysters as I prefer smaller ones. My chicken was slightly undercooked, however the portion was very big so I didn't mind. My 2 friends enjoyed... More

The menu was involved i.e. a lot to choose from. The service was quite slow, in fact too slow. Food wasn't piping hot and my friend didn't enjoy her pasta. MIne was fine nothing more. Wine was OK but pricey

Allora have a bunch of restaurants around JHB, and all of them offer the same great service and culinary experience. Meals are full of flavor and rich with oils and seasoning, closely resembling the Italian dishes from abroad. Good meals and good venues.
