My roasted eggplant pizza was prefect. Plenty of quality ingredients, two of them added after firing, giving it a nice juicy consistency. And the simple garden side salad with Italian vinaigrette was also just right. I did ask for extra vinaigrette from the ordering and they did deliver. Thank you. The restaurant is about 5 minutes walk from the main... More

If you're a local and you haven't been to the Fire In The Belly restaurant, then you don't know what you are missing out on. It has only the best tasting wood fired pizza and desserts, you would be crazy not to come and eat here! I love coming here and it is one of the best places to go... More

Very disappointed with my visit! Such rude service! Never once asked if we would like something to drink, it wasn't particularly busy but know one came anywhere near our table in the 45 Minutes we waited for our meal. Which was then practically thrown on the table by the older woman complete with a sour expression. And it's not cheap!... More

We were booked as part of a large group celebration and had excellent meals and deserts. The staff were run off their feet on the night but still managed to stay cheerful and attentive, and we had an enjoyable night. The pizzas were really tasty and large serves.

Love the food and it's always really busy! The booth seating is lovely. It's very hot in summer but due to the wood fired pizza oven.

Restaurant is unique. The eclectic mix of chairs at the tables seems like a misplaced attempt at being hip. The ceiling fans which there are more than I have ever seen in a restaurant do not seem to have been cleaned in a very long time. These same ceiling fans create a strobe light as the down lights are placed... More

Thanks for the review"Djispot"... yes, we are a little different but our pride is our food, no doubt about it. I'll remember that polish (even though we do the fans every month) as we strive to be that diamond ;) More

This is a nice place to eat at. A mixture of tables and booths exist. The two of us went for regular sized pizzas (one prawn and one mega-meat), and both were loaded with fresh ingredients and had a solid base from the oven. Bottled wine is reasonably priced, and the Clare Valley red we had was totally worth it.

Can heartily recommend Fire in the Belly. Good food, good service and a huge dragon pizza oven!! The only downside is it tends to be frequented by families with small children who tend to run riot (every time I have been there) but still usually a good experience.
