If you are happy to wait for a table most nights or wait a significant amount of time once you do actually order - prepare for an amazing pizza experience for a restaurant that is practically a hole in the wall

Definitely worth searching this place out, the earlier the better as it gets busy! Our pizza was wonderfully fresh and the staff were really friendly! It's only small which makes it quirky but Su h wonderful food!!

Small restaurant in the centre of Byron Bay. Good pizza with Italian ingredients. Great people. You can always feel at home far from home. They speak Italian of course.

El Buco was recommended to us by a friend and it lived up to expectations. The service and food were both out of this world. Felt like we were in Italy again. You have to eat here if you are in town.

Awesome local spot for our family, we are always made to feel welcome and could be eating in one of Italy's little villages. Great street atmosphere & deserts are great too... x

Pizza & salad was delicious. Service was great. This is not a restaurant, just a little corner pizza shop with a few tables, but worth squeezing in if you're a traditional pizza fan.
