Modern space - Excellent pizzas!

JP the boss runs a tight ship here. Good range of Italian food and slightly some more innovative pizza variants. Closes a tad early with last orders just before 2200hrs. Sit down and enjoy a rather stupendous Dom Pedro's cocktail - basically an adult milkshake made from vanilla ice cream, Kahlua... read more

A quiet and understated restaurant that served the most delicious meal of our stay in Franschhoek. The staff were relaxed and friendly with just the 'right touch' and the food was out of this world : sublimely fresh and inventive and not overly fussy - just delicious.

Our visit for a late lunch was disappointing due to some of us finding our main course not quite up to expectation and the high standards we have appreciated elsewhere. We also found the service to be sadly lacking.

Staying in Franschhoek for 6 nights in January, we thought we would have a change from our usual restaurants. Working on the basis that you can't often go wrong with an Italian restaurant, we booked for dinner at Allora. All started off just fine - we were shown to a table on the upper of two levels by the friendly... More

My husband and I picked Allora when we were staying in Franchoek. Everything went well until the manager asked us did we enjoy our meal. Mine had been fine but My husband had lamb shank which came totally covered in a not very nice tomato sauce. As we were tired travelling he scraped off all the tomato sauce and had... More

We chose this restaurant twice, both times in the evening. The food is reliably good. We were a party of 4 adults and each of us chose different dishes all tasty, nicely presented with good ingredients. We were half way through a 3 week holiday in the height of the South African summer. Frankly we were beginning to feel over... More

This is a busy Italian style restaurant with good food and service but could be noisy for some people as it has high ceilings and two levels. Bistro style seating.

We were looking for a place to eat on a Friday evening after 20:00 with no booking. The Allora was suggested to us, and they were able to quickly assist us with a table that just opened up seconds earlier. My fillet steak was every so slightly a bit more red that I would have liked on a medium steak,... More

Our meal was very good and fantastic value (the favourable exchange rate certainly helped). Two of us had pizza and the third had Chicken alla Romana all of which were tasty and well-served. My 18-month-old grandson had a very good meal from the children's menu which was a far cry from the "nuggets and chips" of some English restaurants' offering.... More

Had not booked for dinner but chanced it anyway and it was not long before we were shown to a table upstairs by a very lovely and accommodating waitress. Food, as always, first class, good wine list, excellent service and a very calm and relaxed atmosphere. Love this place !
