Allora, an Italian restaurant in the Pearl Brewery San Antonio, TX

The Folklore of Allora: San Antonio’s Coastal Italian Restaurant

The story of the sisters begins on the winding streets of Italy’s scenic Amalfi Coast, just a short journey from Naples and Rome. Here, Allora and Arrosta channeled the spirit of their family’s recipes and made a plan to take their favorite Italian flavors to Texas. But where was the best city to start? Austin…no…Houston…eh…ah, San Antonio, allora!

Allora set out to bring the delicate romance of the Italian coastline to San Antonio through colorful dining spaces and fresh summer flavors. Beautiful and refined, Allora’s energy adds sprezzatura and style to everything in the restaurant, from the housemade pasta to freshly prepared seafood dishes to warm hospitality.

You will find the sisters’ spirit of adventure in our inventive Italian-inspired cuisine and a touch of home in our friendly service.

Experience a uniquely Texan take on satisfying Italian flavors.
