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.

Thursday lunch was excellent, service was also excellent considering they were reasonably busy. I highly recommend the Pizzas...

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!

We stopped here on the long drive from Adelaide to Hamilton having seen previous reviews. The welcome was wonderful - a wood fired oven always looks good. Service was relaxed (in a good way!) and friendly. The pizzas are the highlight - traditional, Italian-style. Might be odd to read 'italian-style pizzas' but in Italy they are different to anglo countries... More

Nowhere else in Coonawarra for lunch (winery restaurants closed on Monday) so very pleased that we found Ottelia. Nice set up with very friendly staff who will offer wine tastings so you can make a selection to complement your gourmet wood fired pizza. Prompt service and attention. Really enjoyed the pizzas after a few winery visits in the morning. Recommended... More

We were staying in Coonawarra for the long weekend and stopped for lunch here on both days of our trip. This is the only place that serves food in Coonawarra (other options in Penola) and would definitely recommend that you book as it gets very busy even if you think it doesn't look quite full. The pizzas are great and... More

We have just returned from 12 days and several wine regions in SA. Our lunch here was extraordinary - beautiful food obviously prepared with love and attention, and great wine too. We had some fantastic meals but this was a highlight ( thanks South Australian Food and Wine Guide - every recommendation was good!) We started with the tasting plate;... More
