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.

We have been going to La Pecora Nera since it opened, back in 2011 and we have always had a great time and a fantastic meal. 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.

Not only did it entertain the children but also the adults. We started with entrée’s. Cold meats, olives, marinated eggplant, semi sundried tomatoes, muscle‘s, Caprese salad... More

We had such a fabulous lunch that we went back again the next day. We even booked before we left and requested the chefs special mussels again, wow! Service was excellent and very friendly atmosphere. A real surprise in a small country town, would highly recommend.
