“Nice restaurant tucked away!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014 via mobile

Ate there on Monday night after searching for somewhere that was opened, was recommended it by one of the locals. Very happy we found this little gem! Food was served very quickly by friendly staff and we left very satisfied. Would we eat there again - of course! Until next time we visit Berry keep up the friendly service.

“Yum Yum Yum - very good woodfire pizza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014

Took our new car for a drive down the South Coast today and stopped into Berry. As a pizza lover, so many place disappoint by promising good pizza and not delivering. My partner and I were pleasantly surprised by the quality of simple yet delicious pizzas! Wish we lived localyl so we could visit it more often. Staff were lovely!

“Best Pizza Ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2014

We live in Sydney but this little gem of a restaurant on the South Coast in Berry has the best thin based gourmet pizzas you will find anywhere. It is now a regular stop for us on our way south.

“Undisclosed surcharge”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2014

The pizzas may be great but unfortunately we ordered the linguine marinara & mushroom linguine. The Marinara was made with ?frozen marinara mix that consisted of extremely dry fish & absolutely no PRAWNS. When this was mention the staff stated they had taken a couple of dollars off which didn't compensate for the 10% surcharge that was not mentioned on the web page. The Mushroom linguine was smothered in oil with very little fetta & miniscule amount of spinach throughout the dish. The 10% surcharge was not stated until we were seated & given the menu. we are locals & won't be bothering with this restaurant again!!! Unfortunately my husband left a tip.

Dear 24Glenda,

Firstly I would like to apologise to you and and your husband in regards to your not so enjoyable experience at our restaurant. We take our reviews very seriously and were dismayed to read yours. We have taken several steps since reading your review. We have always made our own marinara mix using fresh Australian seafood and following your review have decided to leave the prawns whole (heads off) rather than use prawns already prepped for pizzas.

We have also decided to scrap the weekend surcharge. It was an oversight on our behalf that it wasn't mentioned on the website... no excuses for that. We did however have it prominently displayed in the menu. We felt we had to add a weekend surcharge (put in place only recently) as we have to pay our staff penalty rates. It is also a common practice in the industry. It is very hard for small cafes/restaurants to absorb these additional costs, in fact some places refuse to open weekends and public holidays due to staff penalty rates.

That said, we would encourage you to give us another go as we care for our locals and have a strong local clientele. If you take the time to browse our other reviews on trip advisor, practically all our customers have had a pleasant experience.

Kind regards,
John Dellas
