There was a time when John’s Pizza was the best pizza and pasta north of Adelaide right up to and including Darwin. After a recent visit, that may no longer be the case.

We arrived late enough such that table service had closed. Takeaway was available and we ordered a couple of pizzas to go. We did not bother to look at the pizzas until we got home. If we had we would not have left because they were seriously over cooked and should not have been served.

There were some other aspects of service to do with a coffee which suggested to us that the care factor was limited.

All of this makes a return visit on the next trip difficult.

We had seafood which considering how far Coober Pedy is from the sea was really tasty and well prepared. Other dishes also looked excellent and the place was well used - always a good sign!

Great pizzas. We tried the native pizza and it was delicious. Staff was friendly and service was quick considering how busy they were.

Great food! However good idea to ring and order food ahead of time. We did this at 5pm & it was ready by 5.30. They get really busy - so plan ahead!
