This is a nice place in, very central in town. For us between 3 and 4 star rating as per trip advisor "stars", or better call to "good". Had good pasta and wine. Nice dinner.

We ate here on a Sunday evening and chose Allora because of the nature of the menu - we knew we would have having lunch that day and might therefore not want too much in the evening.

Always a good idea to book as this is one of the most popular places to eat in Franschhoek. Great food, especially the pasta and pizza's. The restaurant is set over two floors so for people who can't make the stairs book downstairs.

Our first night in Franschhoek and we booked a table at Allora. It turned out to be a fabulous choice. The menu was fantastic and so was the food. All the staff were attentive and very professional and we would definitely go back.

We ate an early dinner and enjoyed the food (seafood linguine and lasagna) quite a bit, although the fried calamari appetiser wasn't special. The house pinotage was acceptable and service was fine.
