Reviewed Big Al's couple of months back as great new pizza but now I'm a bit confused. Maybe the new owners but now don't often answer the phone - online orders when open have different options to shop menu ( half n half declined on...phone) Last week ordered two large but only two small were delivered. This week the two large arrived as two family size. Although that compensated for last week the Marinara Pizza was terrible - Like a garlic bread pizza with an occasional shrimp dropped here and there. The one with the lot was good so will try one more time.More

I tried on 2 different days to order takeaway pizza to the motel. But no-one answered the phone. This was after two calls five minutes apart, on two different days. The food is good but you have to provide service.

We ordered well in advance because we have little kids that need dinner early. They took ONE AND A HALF HOURS to get our order to us, during that time we had to phone TWICE and ask where our order was!!! By the time it...got there we had a screaming hungry toddler. I complained to the delivery guy about the service, he said he would pass on my feedback but there was no offer to compensate us or anything. The pizza was tasty, but not tasty enough to have to deal with screaming hungry kids waiting all that time. It was on a Monday night too, not like it was 7pm on a Saturday night.More

We had their small pizza deal delivered to the Tanjil Motor Inn. A small seafood pizza a and a pepperoni pizza with a small garlic pizza. Slightly more expensive than Dominos but with much more cheese. It was very filling and delicious.

Placed an order on line it indicated 45 minutes and my pizzas would be delivery - Live in the centre of town so not too far from the shop ....1 hour and 40 minutes later the order eventually arrived!!!!! 4 different pizzas (lamb, meatball, meat...and bruschetta) all tasted very similar and quite bland ..won’t be heading backMore

Ive never negatively reviewed a food place before but theae guys have deserved that honor. This is the second time we have ordered here and both times they had run out of what we wanted by 7pm. That aside we found stuff to order and...it can only be called stuff because it certainly isnt food. The ribs i ordered were inedible. The fat on them wasnt even cooked and hadnt been rendered down at all. The sauce was tasteless and was like it wad brushed on as an afterthought. Maybe i xan throw it all in the bin and eat the pizza. NO. as a previous person said save the box throw the pizza. I dont mind paying a good price for good food but this was horrid food at a premium price. Dont do it. McCains at coles will be much better than any option you can get here. Dissapointed doesnt even start to describe this muck.More

I'd like to say I could fins something positive to comment on about Big Al's in Bairnsdale but to be honest I cannot. We had pre-ordered pizza, waited 10 minutes for the girl on the counter to stop filing her nails in order to serve,...she was a rude little cow, by the stage our pizzas had been sitting on the ned of the oven going cold for all 10 minutes. The pizzas them selves were like cardboard. The olives tasted off, the "ham" (extended shredded soy protein) was sour and the base had a similarity to cardboard. Should have stuck with AJ's or Mr Pizza both are significantly better (actually even Dominos would have been a significant step up). As a food industry professional the food handling observed during the wait was marginal. Seriously for $42 for 3 large pizzas, a garlic bread and 1.25lt drink - we would have got better from Coles if we'd purchased McCain frozen pizzas!!!!!More

Looking for something for take away dinner after 8.30 and found Big Al's. lots of different pasta types to choose with an assortment of toppings. I has a tortellini with carbonara sauce - one of the best I have had. Pizzas look pretty good too...and everything was reasonably priced. Will come back next time I am in Bairnsdale.More
