The tuna salad was nice. A little overlooked on the edges but dressing made up for it. I had line fish which was kept under the heat lamp too long. Everything had a crust including spinach and risotto.

This seemed to be a place where locals used to go everyday. And if locals go they must know what they can get. I am not a particular fan of italian cuisine, which I consider a little bit limited. Although, because of my kids, I use (have) to go often to italian restaurants. That said, Allora is undoubtedly a fine... More

I have eaten here a few times and the food is always great. Not just for pizza and pasta either; the whole menu is delicious.

I've been fortunate to have eaten here on a number of occasions - always business. Every time I tend to try a different dish and never been disappointed with any of the dishes. Calamarie Ripinie is a true winner. Could be considered my most favorite starter. An establishment that you can count on when you need to - perfect to... More

As local Sandton haunts go, I've been to Allora hundreds of times before. I've never NEVER been let down; whether for social, business or even just wine. The location is great! The food is amazing and the wine list is fantastic - with a good selection of wines by the glass. Stop thinking. Do it.

One of the best Pasta I ever had for lunch was at Allora yesterday. I went there with an Italian friend and was specially recommended the choice of pasta they have. Delicious... added up with the friendly and fast service plus the choice of wine & desserts, it was indeed a day to remember.

Had a wonderful dinner here on a weekday. I have read that the pasta dishes were very good and was intending to have some sort of pasta but was pleasantly sidetracked by our professional and attentive waiter who shared the chef specials of the evening. I enjoyed my perfectly medium rare cooked Kudu steak with the most incredible sauce. Other... More

There really isn't much I can complain about. The food is excellent. The restaurant is located in the heart of sandton so it's always full. Definitely worth trying.

Recently went to Allora's in Sandton with friends on two occasions for dinner and both times were impressed by excellent service, extremely well prepared fare, and value for money. The restaurant was less than half full on both occasions but seems to be more popular at lunchtime - lucky us. Our meals on both occasions were excellent and we ate... More
