Good food - limited menu. Would be nice to see them add some more traditional italian items to the menu....I call it nouveau Italian cuisine.

This restaurant seems to be getting better and better. We all enjoyed the food and ambiance. The service could be a bit warmer, but good overall. I hope it continues to improve. Nice neighbourhood addition.

The service was really excellent. Great family place. The food was generally very good. Except the Cacio e Pepe was pretty mediocre.

The food was a little hit and miss. A Caesar salad that was a head of romaine cut in half drizzled with not enough dressing and an unappealing presentation. A limoncello salad with very faint lemon flavour. The expensive lobster ravioli had no lobster flavour - could have been easily convinced there was no lobster. The bruschetta was really delicious and the porchetta pizza flavourful. The soup was good and the lasagne was tasty. But the food was not consistent enough to make us want to return nor recommend.

The food was pretty good some dishes were very salty - generous portions though which is nice. Service was relatively good. Had to go find our waiter to pay at the end but I think that was a bit of a miscommunication.
We ordered a bottle of wine for $46. When we checked the actual retail value it was a $13 bottle. I understand there needs to be a markup for sure - however a 3x markup up seems ridiculous. Would not be ordering wine again.

Been for dinner and lunch here 2x now. Lunch is better. Terrific view. But, that's not really about the food, is it?
Odd combination of ricotta cheese with braised beef and gnocchi. It was too sweet, too rich. Also, the place is loud and way too 'family' for our liking. Not really a romantic or date place.

Well, every time you find a place you like, they switch the menu and cheapen the meal. I was my go to place for a couple items on the menu, but they switched the contents. The food was bland and under seasoned and the tastes were not there. Won’t be going back any time soon.

Extremely disappointed with Allora. The food was poor, the service was slow and the noise level was extremely high. This is one restaurant that I have sadly crossed off the list.

The meal I ordered was terrible. Very greasy gravy which smothered the gnocchi and made them soggy. My salad was just a bowl full of arugula and little else. The service was acceptable . I would not return, nor would I recommend this restaurant.

I was pleased with the food and service but was disappointed that the 1/2 price wine rules were not well explained. It was my understanding that glasses of wine were excluded unless you purchased the bottle. What I did not realize is that no other bottles of wine were included in the half price special. A lesson learned when I received the bill.

There seemed to be some confusion with our reservation but they did accommodate us. The appetizers were great.. would recommend the fig and prosciutto, the mains were just ok... we will try again but probably just stick to ordering appies

We have eaten here several times. This time we ate in the lounge. We enjoyed the ambience and lack of BOOM BOOM BOOM background music. It was nice Italian or European style music. Service was very good. Too bad we can’t book a table in the lounge. I love children, but sometimes its nice to be in an adult area.

food was ok..not overly impressive service..I was sitting in a location where I saw the chef preparing food ..his pants were riding too low and it was definitely not skin you want exposed in a kitchen preparing food. my caprese salad had no basil and I guess to each restaurant a style but I wasn't a fan of the taste. presentation was good
Service was ok.

We were there for a mid week lunch and the brilliant sunshine made the room a warm and inviting space. The caprese salad had a delightful twist of sundried tomato pesto and the gnocchi was hearty and full of flavour.
Our server was attentive and sincere.
