Shared the antipasto and managed to get through only half a fabulous pizza between the two of us. Very generous servings of incredibly tasty food. Help yourself to wine from the shelf and it's all the same price! Paolo changes the menu depending on what's fresh. Mussels in broth and two pasta dishes were specials on top of the usual... More

We had dinner here and ordered one of their wood over pizzas to share between two. It was delicious and ample for a meal for both of us. A quirky country atmosphere and excellent food.

This restaurant is not open all week only on Thursday to Saturday nights whilst we were in town, hence you need to book as it is very popular with the locals. Great food and very friendly owners.

Warm and inviting. Its like stepping into an italian food festival. Basic tables. Basic seats. Butchers paper on the tables. A menu of pizzas, and a spoken menu with mussels in broth, and the two pasta offers of the evening (this night was ragu and broccoli and parmesan) The italian hot chocolate was thick and rich! The pizzas looked amazing.... More

not the best food, not the best seat, not the cheapest but without doubt the best place to eat out in Burra. We ate here twice on the weekend and loved the food service and atmosphere.

A must visit in this quaint town of Burra. Paolo and Clare really do justice for this very different eatery that is their pride and joy. The passion shows in the food. Having eaten in Italy and sampled real rustic pizzas, well you will find the same here. Pasta's are huge and have that real authentic taste and don't forget... More
