This Italian is just off the main street in Franschhoek, close to the Wine Tram sales office and start of the Wine Tram. A/C is appreciated in the summer time and free wifi also of course. Great pizzas and other dishes. They got one of my all time favourites on the menu - Mexicana pizza.

Really a great place to relax and eat 'normal good cuisine' amongst al the 'star-restaurants' We had the spaghetti bolognese and the pizza with pesto. Both superior quality and perfect and warm staff to make your stay just perfect!

A local said to us when we said we booked at Allora that he goes there with big groups because it is a safe bet. And he was right. The restaurant was very busy and the atmosphere was buzzing but the food did not stand out as being something to write home about and the service was variable - good... More

We decided to go for Italian and chose Allora. Upon arrival we were told all tables were still full but to go enjoy wine of our choice on the house in the small lounge area. That set the tone for a very lovely relaxing evening. The food was very well priced opted for two tasters as starter- which was ample!... More

I booked this restaurant from England before we travelled and was welcomed warmly, my name was on the reservations. Sat on the ground level and had plenty of space between tables which was nice. Food was very nice and cooked well, we asked for time between courses and this was not a problem. Wine was good but more expensive than... More

Allora was heaving when we arrived for our 8:30 dinner so it was a good thing we had booked earlier in the day. The menu is very definitely Italian with South African accents. The chicken cooked in the pizza oven was succulent and delicious. The steak was of good quality. Service is very friendly and pleasant. The upstairs dining room... More

There is a great atmosphere at Allora in Franschhoek, which is matched with excellent Italian food. The menu is extensive, the food well presented with excellent flavours, and good value for money (especially in Franschhoek!) Our party of four thoroughly enjoyed all our choices. They also have a first class wine list for the connoisseur. Service was a bit slow,... More

We had a lovely dinner on a very busy Friday night at Allora. The pizzas, risotto and octopus dishes were top notch. Moreover, we spend 160$ for 6 people including 4 bottles of wine and 3 courses. The coffee is the best one we had in Franschoek. Also nice ambient looking at the art gallery paintings through the big window.... More

The pizzas were very good, starters very average. But I can see why people like to go here: it is definitely not anything like fine dining. Good service.
