La Pecora Nera (The Black Sheep) is an Authentic Italian Eatery (Woodoven Pizzeria & Osteria) located in the picturesque town of Burra in the mid-noth of South Australia. Everything revolves around the magnificent wood-fired oven. It's Italian food as it was meant to be - fresh, vibrant & delicious - the closest you can get to dining out in Rome without traveling to Rome itself! Our ever-changing menu includes: Antipasti (cured meats, cheese, olives & other delicasies) ; Insalate (Salads) & Insalatoni (Big Salads); Pasta (both durum wheat & gluten free); Traditional Woodoven Pizza, Dolci (Sweets & Deserts); Gelati & Caffe (Coffee) Buon Appetito!

Wow! Food Heaven!!!

We extended our stay in Burra so we could come again. This place is amazing! Could it be the most authentic Italian in Australia? We think so. Gorgeous everything!

Ate antipasto plate and one pizza, really enjoyed our meal. Wine was one price and you can choose between Italian and Australian. Pizza was traditional Italian. Well worth a visit.

Warning - you will eat too much pizza. I did. Arguably the best pizza I have ever eaten. The wines,all I think at $35 a bottle seem to be great (we recommend Kilkanoon Shiraz). 1.2 kg heavier after that weekend!

Where do I start? The food is amazing, brilliant and I'd travel the 2 hours from home just to eat there again. We had a pizza which was served as a calzone, complimentary garlic bread and Italian hot chocolate. By the time we left we couldn't move we were so full. The restaurant has a delightful family atmosphere and we... More

I hope the people of Burra know how lucky they are. The food was great the service was excellent. I travelled 120km from Port Pirie and wasn’t disappointed! Started with caprese and crusty bread. I had an entree of beautifully presented fresh muscles, these were superb with a glass of, delicately fragrant, Italian pinot grigio. The wine choice is limited... More

We dined exceptionally well with great service. If you visit Burra this is a definite 'must' for the pizza lovers. Truly authentic and service with a smile from all the staff. BYO although they also have an assortment of fine Italian wines. It was so good we had one of each!

We were travelling on a coach tour and our driver recommended having lunch here. We were warmly welcomed and after checking the menu placed our order. A short time later we were served with garlic bread which was very tasty. Our pizza duly arrived - it was very big, and we ate our way through most of it . Sadly... More

Delicious pizza with excellent crust and tasty fresh ingedients. We had a takeaway but the restaurant was busy with many dining in on the cold windy night.

The mussels are amazing, lovely honest food that you could pick away at all day. The whole place is inviting and has an honest approach to function that creates its own charm. well worth the drive and by far the best part of a trip to Burra.
