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.

Food was delicious and excellent quality. Not disappointed at all. Noisy children a bit of a bother but we moved to alternate seating and thoroughly enjoyed our meal.

Lovely pizza's with more topping than dough, so full of taste. Good service. Nice terrace, that makes you forget the busy road it is located at.

The Woodpecker's margarita pizza is, for me, the best pizza in South Africa. Add a trickle of chilli oil, and a smidgen of garlic and you are transported straight to Italy. Except you are in the gorgeous little town of Swellendam. At R40 a hit, for the thinnest, crispiest base, properly loaded toppings of tomato sugo and mozzarella (no claggy... More
