Alloa was a great find in Franschhoek. Food was enjoyable, staff helpful & service quick without being rushed. They were helpful in suggesting a suitable wine off their wine list. All added up to make an enjoyable & casual evening.

We had 4 different starters and mains and everything was really good. The risotto was stunning and the Vongole just perfect. This is not a fancy restaurant but a great place for som pasta and good wine.
