Why only 4 stars if it's great? Don't get me wrong - it's a very good restaurant but just not mind blowing. I enjoyed myself thoroughly with the good service and warm environment. We had the vongole to share and a steak each. The vongole...More

We love this restaurant! Always a warm welcome. A delicious range of food on the menu, the grilled artichoke was divine. The best main meal by far has to be the fillet steak with porcini mushroom sauce. We look forward to coming again next time...More

We popped into this resturant on a very buzy Friday night and the manager made a plan to get a table sorted for us despite the place being very full. The service was excellent and food very yummy. Thanks for a great evening out.

Very disappointing as we were expecting to eat at an authentic Italian Restaurant - instead we got very average African stew food - but the saving grace was a good tasting soup - could have come from a packet?

We recently had an amazing experience at Allora. Unassuming but beautiful, we happen to come across the restaurant. The food was subtle but inspiring, with wonderful taste explosions and balance. A creamy risotto with truffle oil, a fillet cooked to perfection with a porcini mushroom...More
