Hidden off the main road as you drive through the beautiful Coonawarra wine region, Ottelia provided the perfect location for lunch between the cellar doors. The ricotta gnocchi with burnt butter and sage was the best we've had - so delicious! Great woodfire pizzas and desert. Thanks to the great host for a good laugh. Enjoyed by all and highly... More

Very professional and friendly place to visit. Have been there before a couple of times. The wine tasting and our lunch was great. We had a wood oven pizza a couple of glasses of red and a cheese plate and coffee to finish. Would recommend a visit.

The restaurant was recommended by staff from a cellar door. The meat dishes were better than the pizza. Enjoyed the pork ribs thoroughly. The lamp chops was good too, if a little over cooked. Good option for quick lunch and Coonawarra.

We lunched on a range of pizzas that all had a personality of their own. Fresh and light bases, woodfired and fresh tasty toppings. Staff were hardworking and very professional and friendly, juggling front of house with kitchen plus cellar door tastings all with consummate ease.

We enjoyed a casual light lunch but there was plenty of options. Two gourmet pizzas shared between four people and gluten free pizza base not a problem and plenty of topping options. Plenty of drink choices made for a relaxed lunch during our winery visit.

We were staying nearby and noticed the restaurant. The location meant that we could walk and not have to drive into Penola. We weren't expecting much but the entree of cauliflower and blue cheese soup was superb, my wife's lamb korma the best she has ever had and my lamb back strap perfectly cooked. The experience was made even better... More

Had a lovely lunch sitting outside this lovely little cellar door/cafe. The pizza is to die for and the lady serving us took time to chat about the local area etc. I'll be back!
