What a lovely surprise. We have traveled through Burra many times and this was our first time at La Pecora Nera, definitely not our last. We have a Coeliac child and there were many gluten free pasta options which, for us, is always a plus.

Went last night and going back tonight for a feed of mussels. Nice wine list of local and Italian wines, really great pizza and enormous/tasty antipasto plate. Very reasonable prices, nice place and great food. That's why it's a successful restaurant.
