We were overlooked by staff when we first arrived and kept prompting to have drinks and our order taken. The ordered steak came out undercooked (blue instead of Med-Rare) but this was sorted. Eventually, the meal was good. Although there is no accessible toilet, staff obtained a key to one which was nearby - thanks for doing that.

This is a great restaurant serving real tasty food. A typical Italian menu, pizzas, pastas, steaks, fish and a specials board. We were there in August so it was fairly quiet and didn't need to book, but I gather in the summer months, this place gets very busy and it's probably best to book. Prices were very reasonable, very comfortable... More

We tried this restaurant on a recommendation from a local we met a a winery. The restaurant is atmospheric and beautifully decorated. We loved the fact that you could see the pizza oven and the stacks of wood each side. If seated outside there is a view from your table to the mountains. We decided to sit inside as it... More

Having a great evening is a combination of many things and Allora gets it right. Tasty drinks, excellent food, great service, comfy ambiance near the fireplace and good value. Almost missed the balcony in the back with great views over the valley. Actually went there twice because Ryans kitchen was just closing as we approached. Decided to have dinner there... More

Allora was a brilliant experience - they had a great warmth and cosy environment, and served great food. The service was attentive however not over the top. Thanks for the great meal! Steak was BRILLIANT however the pasta was a tad undercooked

we needed something to eat to break up our wine tasting tour and Allora was the right place at the right time. Conveniently located off the main strip in Franschhoek, Allora is a modern and well designed restaurant with a good menu with lots of choice, friendly and helpful staff and - of course - a good wine list. Great... More

Ok, in Franschhoek it is difficult to impress compared to others. But I did not feel well here. Why are some customers (we) get paper napkins when others ( neighbour table) has got the real ones ? My seafood linguine was far from perfect : overspiced in an "overpowdered" manner, overcooked. Everybody on table agreed the food was " ok,... More

If you are looking for honest Italian cuisine, then this is the place you should visit. We were picked up from our wine estate by the restaurant and had a lovely table right besides the fire place. Also the staff was very friendly and food was delicious. I can recommend the signature dish Filetto ai Porcini. Yumm!

4 adults, 3 children. From Cape Town and Switzerland. Cold winter day in Franschhoek. Warm reception from the staff. Attentive service from Peter. 7 different meals ranging from pizza for the kids, pasta for some adults and an outstanding veal Marsala. Made for a fantastic meal.
