Great food and friendly service at fair prices. Good variety of dishes. Warm setting for a cold evening in Franschhoek.

We stopped in at this lovely Italian restaurant for dinner when we were in Franschhoek. The menu had a nice selection of pastas, pizzas, and meat dishes. The service was attentive but not in the way. The price for our meal was also quite reasonable.

We visited Franschhoek over the Bastille Festival and was pleasantly surprised when we booked a table at Allora for dinner. The venue is sophisticated without being pretentious. There is an upstairs section which includes a bar, while downstairs has a cozy fire place and links to an art gallery. The food was very tasty - highly recommend the Salmon glazed... More

Here for the Bastille festival and we wondered across this spot per chance. Knew nothing about it and had a perfect dinner. The fillet pasta is one of the most elegant dishes I had in ages. Well worth it. Everything just perfect. Here for a second night in a row.

Absolutely loved the cozy ambience of this quaint little retuarant in the heart of the town. Waitors were great. The live show or performance from one of the waitors(added logs to the fire, bent down and revealed a tad bit more plumbers crack than intended) was priceless.

What an amazing restaurant - upmarket and chic with wonderful pizza and pasta. The gluten-free options were great for those of us who don't eat gluten. I thoroughly enjoyed the gluten-free penne.

Allora was recommended by a friend. When I mentioned it a dinner option to my host in Franschhoek, he said he hadn't been in a while (he has his favorites). So my call was the right call. Great menu and we all went in different directions for flavour. the entire evening was comfortable with anticipating service keeping the wine glasses... More

This restaurant has an extensive menu, mostly Italian in inspiration, along with an extensive wine list. The decor is well designed, and the service is solid. The pizzas are reasonably priced, with other menu items being more expensive but still not too costly given what is on offer. In most other towns this restaurant would score higher, but here it...
