Great pizza

Lovely thin based pizza in a cozy atmosphere. Power outage was planned and arrangements was made in advance to light candles and to pay by credit card. Food was delicious!

Great, thin based pizzas just like you get in Europe. The choice of fillings is more than adequate. Service is great and the staff are friendly. The owner takes a personal interest in the diners, which is a change.

We stopped by at the beginning of our Garden Route adventure and the pizzas are great! The base is thin with just the right amount of toppings. Would definitely return!

If you like something informal, or a quick pizza with an Italian twist and delicious think crust, then Woodpecker is the best place to go. The rest of the menu is also good, but includes more of the typical pasta end burger dishes.

I had supper at Woodpecker during load shedding 2 nights ago and what a special experience. Loads if candles set the mood perfectly for this intimate little restaurant. Try any pasta on the menu...absolutely delicious. Good service and excellent food makes for a really unique country eat-out! Enjoy! !
