We were very lucky as the restaurant was fully booked when we arrived for lunch and so we asked for a table outside. Sitting under the vines, enjoying good wine and very good pizzas was a great way to while away an hour or two,. The staff were extremely friendly and Jasmine in particular was excellent. Thank you all for... More

La Pecora Nera is probably as Italian as you will get outside Italy. Excellent food, service and atmosphere. No bookings so do not be late. House wine better value than bottles.

Who would have thought you could get authentic Italian in a small country town? Not only is the food amazing, the atmosphere is fantastic, the team of staff are fun locals and gappy's and place is gorgeous - with newly renovations. The overall experience was lovely - defiantly worthy of all the articles and praise

We live 2 hours away in Adelaide and recently visited friends who own a station in Burra. As usual my one request is that we find time to go to La Pecora Nera. As we have been to this little gem on multiple occasions we always find something new to rave about. The owners are truly friendly and any little... More

We recently enjoyed our second visit to The Black Sheep and, if anything, it was better than the first. The complimentary garlic bread was delicious, the pizzas were massive and tasty (we learnt our lesson and shared this time), the atmosphere was great and the service was excellent. We decided to take a nice bottle of wine and the corkage... More

We had a group dinner at this restaurant, it is quirky, really friendly staff, has a classic old fridge to get your drinks from and then pay at the bar. Fantastic wood fired pizzas that are fresh and 10/10 every time. The antipasto we had first just kept coming - amazing, and so Italian! The owner is Italian and his... More

What a treat this was, it must have been the biggest pizza i've ever been served and it was delicious, as was the bread and the wine. Atmosphere was fantasico,, staff were very helpful, efficient and friendly. great decorations around the place as well as some interesting sculptures. I wish i lived closer to have a return visit.

This is a greast eatery and so authentic. We lunched there and the food and service were well above standard. The waitress recommended an Italian wine and that too was as she described and was top quality. Highly recommended.
