If you're in the mood for authentic delicious Italian food this is the spot! Delicious bread basket to start and they offer a wide selection of home made pasta options. Defending worth the money. Enjoy!

OMG the chicken "a la Orientale" is simply to die for!! Great (and quick) service, great ambience, simply fabulous food. Am planning to return for the fabulous chicken at the first opportunity :) Also try the chicken á la diavola and their T-bone. Suitable for friends or couples, and a great choice for a small business gathering.

We dined here with a new acquaintance at his suggestion. The menu was extensive & the wine choices were sufficient. I had steak - which was perfectly cooked & our table's other choices: gnocchi & pasta were also well received. A very good dinner overall & a bargain for those of us from North America.

We went there for the pizzas only. Not the best ones, and a bit expensive. We did not try any other meals.

When it fills up, Allora buzzes with chatter and energy, and it appears to be very popular with Sandton workers and diners. Allora has a relatively large interior dining area, with a very popular patio/ outdoor section. My friend and I arrived spontaneously for a quick lunch and were lucky to secure a table outside.
