They realy try to treat all their guests from the moment you enter with personal service. We enjoyed the nice food. From the starter platter to the fresh fish. Dessert was amazing.

We have been visiting this Mediterranean restaurant for many years. The food is great and the pizzas are some of the best in the area. Management needs to keep their fingers on the pulse, though. I have recently had a bad lasagne, service staff are becoming forgetful etc. Please keep up your standards - we love this place!

Romantic venue with great lighting. Food was amazing, my partner had pizza (the best his had) thinly crusted, I had a risotto (so flavorful) as well as dessert - Panna cotta, so delicious and well decorated. A bit pricy but great for a Romantic evening.

We ordered prawns, which were over cooked. The prawns came with a side serving of risotto - which according to them is just plain rice. The accompanying sauces weren't flavorful, and tasted more like cheese sauce than peri peri sauce. We were really disappointed because we have eaten there on several occasions previously and it has been good.

Got there in Mothers Day. The place was fully booked. We were asked to be back after an hour. Guess what? We got our place precisely at the promised time. Then our mother got a rose with a message: God Could Not Be Everywhere And Therefore He Made Mothers. Beautiful message & service Allora Bedford

Had overseas guests to entertain and were told to go to Allora in Bedford Centre. The look of the restaurant is warm and inviting, as are all the staff. We had a tough time deciding what to choose because everything on the menu sounded delicious. Everyone was blown away by their meals as well as the level of service. Our... More

Allora is a great restaurant. Food and service is exceptional. Atmosphere is really great for both groups, or for a romantic dinner with your partner. Nice variation on menu and the wine list great. Due to the fact that it is inside a shopping center, it is very safe. Unfortunately does not have a view outside but the ambiance inside... More
