This is a place that could easily be deceiving from the outside. Go in, great selection of food and fantastic food and service. Wonderful staff, wonderful place! Ate here on many occasions. It can be extremely busy at times.

Not sure what the hype is about.
The title #5 best pizza in Australia seems far fetched as the thick bread crust & overall taste are more similar to a frozen Woolies pizza.
Serving generous sizes doesn’t make it the best pizza.
Staff below average- atmosphere average.
Spend your money elsewhere.

Loved it. Super busy as we visited over the Easter weekend but this was to be expected and was great to see the place full up.
Prices were reasonable given the remote location and great sized portions.
We enjoyed two beers each in the sun while waiting.
We ordered two Medium pizzas (which were huge!) one BBQ chicken and one Coat of Arms (Kangaroo, Emu). Both were delicious and we took some leftovers home for lunch the following day.
Staff were wonderful and very friendly and accomodating.
Would recommend!

The staff here are all friendly and very helpful, service was A1.
These guys make the best pizza I've ever tasted, and on top of that they serve cold beer. What could be better? A hidden gem in the South Australian outback. Well done John and staff! We stayed in Coober Pedy 2 days and came here twice.

John's never fails to impress. Despite a ridiculously busy evening the quality of the food never wanes. If you would like to try something a little different from your everyday pizzas try the'San Remo', absolutely delicious. Oh and the large would feed an army! Can't wait to get back there.
