we had the most exquisite lunch here, the food and service were second to none. It was quiet- only one other group I could see in the restaurant so I would expect good service, and it lived up to that expectation. We had 2 starters to share between the 3 of us- the stuffed squid tubes were divine. My husband... More

This was a first visit to this restaurant. We were very impressed. They have outside seating which I would imagine you have to book in advance for but the rest of the seating area is great too. The service was very good and the food excellent. We had pizza's but the other food leaving the kitchen looked scrumptious. From steak... More

After having too much gourmet food we were looking for a relaxed place to sit back and enjoy a good simple meal. Efficient service, tasty food. Very happy.

We were taken here by some local relatives who often eat at Allora...very pleasant sitting out in the square in the warm evening air. Menu was extensive, lots of choice. Pasta and pizza both very tasty, as were deserts. Good portion sizes. Service attentive if a little rushed. Good choice in town, would return.

Went there fairly early in the evening as we had our 21 mth old girl with us. Service was pretty good, waiter was good with our little girl despite the odd piece of flying pasta! Food was fine, pleasant but not remarkable. Good central location

We used to go to the previous location which we really enjoyed just out of town. However the new place is an even nicer setting and lovely decor. We sat upstairs and the service was great, and menu extensive. I had a lovely piece of steak and all my guests gave good feedback.

We choose Allora based on a recommendation. It has an extensive menu which is lovely and specials on the night. We went when they had a function upstairs, so it was fun watching everyone walk in dressed up but it ruined the ambience of a couples dinner when trying to compete with speeches over the mic. Waiters were friendly and... More

We had just arrived in town and were taking a walk, looking for a place to eat. We didn't have reservations, but we had a lovely table overlooking the mountains, Very reasonably priced, great service and food.
