Highlight of our weekend in terms of service - our waitress was unobtrusive yet always there when needed. Food was great. Veal masala - so tender. Ai Porconi - lovely flavors and pesto wasn’t overpowering.

We had dinner at Allora last week. We were not impressed by the food. We are big fans of the Italian kitchen, but usually it is better than this experience. Sad to say!More

We found this place while staying here for a night in Franschhoek. The risotto was super tasty and the veal Milanese was cooked perfectly. Great service in a great and safe area of the town. Highly recommend for couples and families alike.
