Both having starters, I had a steak my wife had lamb chops with all the trimmings. We had a nice bottle of South African red wine and some coffees. The service was good, and the food was... More

Without a reservation we needed a table for 2 following our return from the wine tram. The menu at Allora was full of Italian flavors and dishes. When we walked in the staff were friendly and attentive, although there wasn't a table immediately available they made us feel welcome and we were seated very shortly afterwards. The outdoor area is... More

This is a typically generic "Italian" restaurant. It's size should have given it away! Everything was average, from the prices, the staff, to the quality of the food, which bordered on poor. Not once did a manager, or even our waiter ask us for feedback. There are MANY other restaurants in Franchoek that are better.

Nice restaurant, food tasty but service could of been better and more attentive. Our table was not laid up with napkins and we had to ask for an ice bucket. One of our meal orders was wrong, but it was good food so not too much of a problem. Busy popular place.

This is a great restaurant on the main street but at the back of a mall. It has a large indoor as well as outdoor seating area.Both have a very pleasant atmosphere. We went here twice. Once for lunch, and a couple of days later, for an early dinner. Lunch salads and sandwiches were so large and tasty, that we... More

We had a pizza, grilled calamari tubes and a salad. All very tasty and well prepared. The wine is well priced and not overcharged as they do in Cape Town. A good meal with a nice bottle of wine for R 400 is value for money. Only the Espresso there the guys need to work on.

We hadn't booked a table for our first night in Franschhoek during our 3 week tour of South Africa. This was a mistake as all the big names were full. However the Allora found a table for us and we had a very good meal with the usual excellent service.

I ordered something for take away: the staff was very friendly and helpful on the phone. Food was alright but not extraordinarily good. Good if you are looking for Italian cuisine but there are nicer places in town.
