Have been a regular customer of this place for over 10 years. However our last 3 orders were rather disappointing. Pizza is getting smaller, has less toppings, on the last pizza we could barely find meat (Greek Special) and Supreme pizza seemed to be unfinished (dough wasn't really nice). I will give it a go 1 or 2 more times,... More

Slow service, not friendly, overpriced pasta and pizza. Steak not cooked to requested taste. I sent my meal back to the kitchen twice. First time there was Dill in my fettuccini Salmon dish and the second time it had 6 lemon seeds and Dill. No offer to compensate, big John just reminded me about how wonderful his new chef is-...

The shop is situated on a main road, clearway restrictions end at 7pm, making parking for an early dinner impossible. This is the 3rd visit to Big John's over 2 years, Previous visits saw excellent pizzas served, this evening tried the Pasta marinara. Plenty of fresh seafood on a Neapolitan base. There were a choice of pastas. 8/10 . There... More

I've dined at Big John's several times and I really like the food here. This joint is always busy, the service is good, the portions are HUGE so it is a good idea to share all dishes you order and our dishes were tasty from the cheesy garlic pizza, ravioli with avocado - so creamy and yummy and the salads...

On our way home from Sydney to Wollongong we saw a restaurant bursting with patrons and had to try it. So glad we did, food was fresh, arrived quickly and really satisfied our hankering for authentic Italian. Lots of atmosphere filled with local families sharing good honest food.

Always busy tells the story. Hearty generous serves of excellent comfort food. I have eaten here several times now and have been very happy with the flavours and quality of the meals. I am destined to become a regular!

This place was filthy. The smell was really bad. We still decided to eat there purely because it seemed busy everytime we passed by so we thought there must be something special about this place and gave it a go. We ordered pizza, garlic bread and rocket salad. When it arrived we started eating the salad and the Parmesan cheese... More

Popular local place, not sure why unless it is purely for the size of the meals. First visit with a reservation, left outside in the cold with a very pregnant friend for over an hour, staff didn't even offer her a seat. Garlic pizza was good and servings were generous but not very good. Very noisy restaurant, had to yell... More
