This is a very popular place. We booked a table for 6pm. As you still have to order from the counter we had a 45 min wait, so if I went again I would avoid 6-7pm as this seemed to be their busiest time. My husbands and kids pizzas were average, but mine was the best pizza flavour combination I... More

I have to say this is one of the better places to eat in Coober Pedy. The pizzas are good and they have a bigger menu to choose from. A very busy place so get in early.

Well ... everyone seemed to rave about the pizza here so we felt we had to try it. Was it good? Yeah... was it as amazing others said? No I don't think so. I've definitely had better pizza. But the place was warm and inviting and staff friendly.

Had a pleasant meal here, 12inch pizza $22, garlic bread $6, wine $33!! or BYO corkage is $10. Our pizza with feta cheese was really good, however the staff do need to listen more carefully to what people order to avoid mistakes. There we 6 of us and it was busy in the place until 8.30pm when it went quiet... More

2/4 pizzas weren't too bad. The two pizzas that had ham on them weren't great but it may just have been the type of ham they used and personal preference. It certainly seemed to be a very popular destination though, all the tables were full.

Wasn't expecting much in the way of fast food at 9pm in Coober Pedy but this was as a good a pizza as you'd get anywhere. It wasn't quick but the staff were friendly and efficient. Not cheap but certianly a pizza to fill you up.
