This is a very pleasant Italian restaurant in the centre of Franschhoek. Nothing extraordinary but good honest food and pleasant service.

Recommended by friends, we luckily booked and had a great evening. Set at the back of a courtyard off the main street, it offers very good value pasta and pizza as well as the standard a la carte. Worth a visit

From the outside it does look that inviting located as it is in a small shopping precinct of the main artery than run through Franshhoek. Please don't be put off by it's outside appearance, the interior is atmospheric, inviting and homely. Our party dined here twice during our stay, so something must have been right on the first visit. Fantastic... More

Last time we went to Allora was 3 years ago. Now we're back in SA and opted for a quick take out pizza. We noticed Allora is now in the center instead of at the skirt. To be honest, we liked more the authentic simplistic place of before, but the new place is much more sophisticated and not at all... More

After a cool glass of rosé outside we decided to have dinner here - inside. Very friendly and adequate staff. Nice style of restaurant. Each plate is made fresh on the spot. Ample portions. The Italian style food is good, but lacks the flavour of original Italian herbs. Can definitely recommend.

We visited the town of Franschhoek for two days and chose to have lunch at Allora on our first day. It was hot and the moment we entered the cool interior we could feel ourselves relax! We shared a starter and each had a pizza for main course. Quality food, fabulous wine and excellent service! I will recommend this place... More

We have visited several times, never disappointed. The staff are very good and attentive. Solid Italian food - pizzas are tasty with a thin base and enough toppings. The pasta dishes are cooked freshly. A good idea to have a chioce of 'taster appetisers'..very nice.

My son and I had spent a day visiting various wine farms and wanted something to eat before heading back to our rented cottage. Allora is in a small precinct with a number of tables outside but far enough back from the road. The food is good with some stable italian classics and pizza. We enjoyed a quick meal and... More
