The best thin crust pizzas in town are made here. The staff are efficient, helpful, & friendly. The outside seating areas are basic but OK. The inside area is more comfortable but could be better ventilated. I prefer to take away my pizzas & enjoy them at home. The take away service is good with reasonable waiting times.

Friendly service, all their food are excellent, from pizza to their chicken fillet, and their chocolate bomb dessert is divine!!

Pizza tasted good but wasn't anything special really. Good value for price, nothing to complain about. Good and friendly service.

We stopped at The Woodpecker on our way to George. The food was so amazing that we agreed to stop in again on our way back. The service was great, and the general atmosphere was lovely. Definitely a must!

On our way to George from Cape Town we stopped for some lunch. Very nice little place. The service and food was very good. The food did take some time but then again we were 11 people.

waited 50 minutes for food today. Don't stop here if time is important to you. If the staff and kitchen cannot cope with volume pack tables and chairs away. Restaurant was not full. This was the second time my wife and I gave this place a second chance. Will not be back

The restaurant has the best pizzas I have tested in a while. It is a thin crispy base with a lot of toppings done in the traditional pizza oven. The service is good and the prizes are good for the value you get. Well worth a visit if you are in the mood for some pizza.

We went in to look at the deli for something to buy, the deli is basically non existent. It's only a restaurant these days. We ordered a take away facatchia, it was not great not sure what the the rest of the food is like.
