“Wish I could eat there every night !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2012

Their menu is fantastic and just when you think you know what you want to order... here come the specials ! WOW ! Yummy ! We went with a group and everyone had something different from Pizza to Seared Tuna and everyone was impressed. Nothing run-of-the -mill , everything made from fresh . Thank you Allora

“Surprisingly delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

This looked like a pretty standard Italian restaurant, but the food turned out to be more delicious than expected! Pizzas were yummy (and very large for single portions!) and the seared tuna was divine. Will definitely return!

Excellent steak, good selection on the menu, and we had an Italian sparkling wine. Good service and atmosphere. Wine is expensive though

Nice place with a good service.
Very good steak. But no chips as side :-(
Warm bread any time you require.

“Excellent food, but somewhat pricey”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2012

I recently visited Allora for the second time. Although the previous dinner meal was good, this lunch time experience was much better. The service was good, but the staff can try to be more friendly.

Their pasta dishes are excellent, but there wine prices are over the top.
