All I can say is form over substance. With all the right equipment and the freshest of ingredients, I have never experienced the re-murder of fish, and getting rice so badly wrong.

This was our 6th visit to Allora, it will probably be our last. This used to be a restaurant where the food was good and it was a place to take someone for a special meal. I ordered a pasta dish containing Scottish salmon, I could smell the old fish smell before the plate reached the table, the fish was... More

A really fine dining experience. The staff are extremely courteous and knowledgable and add to the occasion. The food, from starters to desserts, were all delicious and well presented. It's difficult to recommend a dish as all were of excellent quality. The only minor drawback,although not serious, is there is a public passageway on two sides and the noise and... More

The food is delicious. The waiters supply a good service. Their food is consistently good. Great atmosphere! Their pizzas are thin and tasty.

A great place to share a meal with friends! Service is good and after having tried various dishes I can say that the food is excellent - never yet had a dish that was not tasty and well presented. Staff are friendly and wine selection good. My two favourites (although each dish is excellent) are the veal encrusted with Dijon... More

Bad word plays aside, Allora consistently serves good, tasty Italian food. Over our many visits we have sampled their pizzas, pastas, starters, mains and desserts and each is prepared with care using fresh ingredients. The flavours are simple, but perfectly complement each other. Our favourites include: calamari ripieni, focaccia all' aglio, pizza mediterranea and mousse al Cioccolato Our last visit... More

We were a party of 9. The dishes ordered were as varied as the menu itself. No one went home disappointed! Best calamari I have had in years. Wine a bit on the expensive side though. Great venue, highly recommended.
