“Superior service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

This restaurant is situated in the heart of the business district of Johannesburg - Sandton. It is centrally located and is very popular in the business community. The wait for the meal was reasonable but worth the wait. The manner in which the meal is brought shows a sense of pride and supports the good standards that this restaurant appears to uphold. I will use this venue in future

“Allora, two thumbs up always”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

Impecable service and food, try the t-bone, and order a milkshake to wash it down, their milkshakes are one of a kind, visit early you will not be dissapointed....

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!

“Celebration Dinner”

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