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!

Family friendly, great service, flexible menu and great food and drinks. We heard about the place and stayed at Paxton Cottages for a weekend away with a dozen of our family.. We visited Saturday for lunch and again Sunday morning for breakfast. Had a ball and highly recommend you visit.

Great service and meals when we visited mid Jan 15. We had a party of 10. We never waited for anything, choice of food and taste was amazing. Some of the best pizza's I have ever eaten. I am not aware if they do delivery, brunch or have outdoor eating.

It can be hard to maintain the excitement week in week out, but Clare and Paolo and their excellent team seem to manage it. The place is still humming; happy faces, laughing families and... More

Popped in for lunch. Lovely atmosphere, family friendly, relaxed. The food was great. It was very busy when we went in, but service was still timely. Clare is a delightful hostess.

If you are in Burra do not miss going to this restaurant. We stumbled upon it on our travels and had a glorious night there. A modest restaurant with great food and great service. Everything we ordered was simple and superb. Service was outstanding - if only this restaurant was in Sydney. There is nothing here to compare. Like being... More

We had heard of this lovely restaurant from many travellers in South Australia and are so glad we got to Burra today. Delicious lunch - authentic Roman pizza, Italian wine with service and charm aplenty! Thank you Clare and Paolo for a delightful occasion.
