We visited with a large group expecting the 'amazing' pizza other reviews had said. While the customer service and atmosphere was nice, the pizza was absolutly disgusting. Between us we tried about 5 and none were passable as anything but incredibly soggy pizza with way too many toppings and way too much cheese. Their 'salmon' pizza used tinned salmon and had (way too many) toppings.
It is edible but there seems to be way too much hype about this place. Avoid if you have other options.

Had a great pizza here- inside and outside seating! Pizza, wine, beer- just the thing after a long day!

Basic menu, but good size meals and prompt service. Quick and easy dinner for no fuss night. Recommend the fish burger!

Arrived late in Coober Pedy and this was the only place still serving - it markets itself as 'open til late' however at 9.05 they were only serving takeaway, and moaned about that despite the fact they were busy!
We waited about 20 mins for our pizza - a lamb and feta option - however on receiving the pizza it was swimming in grease. We also got home to find our tzatziki dip was missing.
On the plus side the large pizza was adequate for 3 hungry girls
Supposedly the 5th best pizza in Australia...I can name 5 better in Adelaide alone

It was busy for a Sunday night and we didn't have to wait too long for our meals. We choose two pizzas - Johns special and Hawaiian and the flavours were great. I had read many reviews about how good this place was and it didn't disappoint. The prices were higher than what we normally pay in Adelaide however I didn't think it was unreasonable.
Will eat there again if we get an opportunity.
