Food was good, particularly the pizza. The restaurant itself was stylishly done out, and spacious. Really enjoyed it.

Allora may be an Italian restaurant but it certainly caters to all tastes with lots of beef in addition to loads of pasta and pizza. We enjoyed very friendly service, good wine and great pizza. It's located right in the center of Franschhoek so easy to walk to. You'll most likely enjoy it as much as we did!

We usually spend a few days each year in Franschhoek & fondly remembered 2 visits to Allora the previous year. Coinciding with the ever popular Champagne festival I booked well in advance for our wedding anniversary & was charmed to be greeted with congratulations from Ian at reception & then complimentary glasses of champagne from the ever charming Janine who...

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
