It was a cold winters evening in Franschhoek and the restaurant was warm and welcoming. The restaurant has two levels, the lower level seating surrounds the open fire so we opted for the upper level where the temperature was just fine. Nice to have the choice though. There was plenty of seating with options for comfortable lounge chairs or the... More

Having had a fine dining experience the previous evening we wanted simple fair and Allora offered a pleasant surrounding with friendly staff and good Italian food. An enjoyable meal.

Allora serves good wholesome food at prices that are a little bit higher than expected for an Italian style restaurant but still more cost effective than most of Franschhoek. Intimate tables downstairs with a large open plan type area upstairs where they can cater for large party's.

We had dinner on a Sunday night at Allora and were so astonished to find such an outstanding Italian restaurant in Franschhoek; the decor is warm and inviting, the food some of the best pastas we have eaten and the staff were welcoming and helpful. When the manager discovered that it was my husbands birthday he offered us glasses of... More

A fantastic restaurant with a real buzz. We really enjoyed it and returned the following night. We were squeezed in on the first occasion upstairs and found a real vibrant buzzing atmosphere. Food good and service great so much so we asked for a table for the following night. This time sitting downstairs. A central location with great food and... More

The menu at Allora is quite extensive, as well as having some delicious "daily specials" and an excellent wine menu. Given that it was winter the restaurant was lovely, warm and cosy, and frequented by locals and tourists. Great value for money, would also like to mention the lovely charming staff who served us this evening Thabisa was extremely helpful... More

Very welcoming on a cold and wet Sunday lunch. Took us in without a booking and simply made a plan My minestrone starter was good and comforting as it should and kingklip linefish delicious. Everyone enjoyed their meals. Thank you JP for hosting us in professional and warm custom.

One of the most delicious pasta dishes I have had outside Italy. Filleto e Funghi, was the dish I had and I frequently think back to it, mouth watering! The village was busy and we didn't have a reservation anywhere but these guys managed to find us a table, service was excellent even though it was busy. Hope to come... More
