This spot right on the main street through Franschhoek was a perfect location so we could walk to dinner. They had very good Italian food and the service was very good. It was a nice casual spot for a relaxing dinner. I would recommend it.

A safe place to have a nice meal in Franschhoek. We thoroughly enjoyed the seafood pasta. Not cheap but generous portions, excellent service.

Came with friends to order a takeaway pizza with my friends for my son cz I didn't feel like cooking since I was in town and he loves pizza and thought I'd buy one from Allora since I know how good their pizzazs are but...the manager on duty was so rude on insulting she assumed I was drunk and refused to serve me even refused my friend to use the bathroom because I was drunk and even threatend to call the security on us since we didn't want to leave and were begging to order the pizza but eventually left cz she was too rude and unprofessional totally disappointed and dissatisfied as it is not my first time buying take away pizza from the restaurant but was my first time enteractaing and even meeting the lady( Lamiesha) or something, total disappointment and bad service or Was it because we were black and seemed poor to her that she felt the need to chase out out even though I only wanted a pizza for my son 😔More

This is a lovely/quaint restaurant. Staff attentive and the food was "delish". Reasonably priced. Would definitely return.

We habe been there twice, you will need a reservation when you intend to come in after 6.30/7 pm. The staff is attentive, not intrusive. The food is excellent, the pasta as well as the pizzas, and if you also will have a starter, having...the main courses is a strange task due to the amount of good food. They are making the pizza in an original woodfire oven, fine. The drinks as well as the wines are fine also, so we came in a second time as initially mentioned. Also a good value for money. If we will come to Franschhoek again, we will try to visit Allora again.More

Our favourite restaurant in Franschhoek. Visited approx 5 times during our recent trip to SA, and every single time the food and service were faultless. Staff are so friendly, efficient and helpful. Vast choice of food from the menu, plus daily specials. When the weather...was warmer, they set up outside tables and if they ran out of space, they just put some more in. Brilliant!More

We tried to get into Allora on our first night but couldn’t because we didn’t have a reservation. So of course we made a reservation for another night assuming it must be good—and it was. The Italian menu has a lot of variety and is...creative. My husband initially couldn’t decide between the Kudu steak with gorgonzola and fig sauce and the calamari tubes stuffed with a halloumi cheese and pesto mixture on pasta. Ultimately he went with the calamari, which I liked more than the traditional calamari in a white wine sauce I got. My dinner was great, but I should have opted for the creative option this time. We split the generous portion of tiramisu and it was the best tiramisu we’ve had, …and we’ve had a lot of tiramisu. We definitely recommend Alora, but make reservations. On a warm evening it’s nice to sit outside.More

This restaurant delivered above our expectations. We had the best Melanzane ever and the veal was fantastic. We also tried the pizza and it was delicious.

A return to one of our favourite Italian restaurants in Franschhoek. We visited here twice during our 8 night stay including Valentines Night which luckily we’d booked in advance. We’ve always sat outside previously but both times this occasion we were seated inside which was...much more preferable as the wind can whip up and turn things chilly. Our first visit we both opted for the prawn risotto accompanied by garlic bread with cheese and it was delicious. The second visit it was seafood linguine and prawn pasta, again accompanied by garlic bread with cheese - again superb. The restaurant was really busy on both occasions with a great atmosphere and service was great. Well recommended.More

We arrived into Franschhoek that afternoon and didn't have a reservation for dinner that evening. Our hotel suggested and quickly made a reservation for us that evening just a couple hours later. We sat outside on the patio and looked at the beautiful mountains. The...service was quick and the food was good, we both got pastas and they were large helpings and very tasty.
