I have been to this restaurant on several occasions over 5 years. The food here is exceptional with lovely pastas and steaks. The service was impeccable with very helpful staff. It really is worth giving it a try, you won't be disappointed

We have dined at Allora several times and it is consistently excellent - both the food and the service. The fillet steak is one of the best I have eaten anywhere. The menu is extensive but we have never been disappointed with anything that we have ordered. Service is friendly and efficient and there's always a buzzy atmosphere as it's... More

We tipped up on a Sunday night without reservations and, luckily, they were able to give us a table after a very short wait at the bar. We enjoyed an excellent meal with good service and thought the atmosphere was very pleasant.

As with most restaurants when you try to book they say they are full, however if you ask again they say come back and we will find you a table. This happened here and it was worth waiting for. The service, wine and food were all excellent and really inexpensive.

A very pleasant and friendly dining experience at the Allora a few days ago. Lovely Zimbabwean waiter who assisted us throughout the evening.

The manager was very knowledgable about my gluten free diet. They did have 3 lots of gluten free pasta and most pizza could be made gluten free. Excellent meals and not expensive.

A very popular restaurant, so advisable to book! The inside was full, so we sat outside, which was just as good. A lot of choice on the menu.

So after a hard afternoon wine-tasting we alighted on the nearby restaurant. It happened to be Alloa. Our starters were good and the pizzas thin but soft and my extra anchovies ensured I drank more and more (but water this time)
