“Nearly Australia's best pizza”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2013

I really like this place, the food is good - but have had Australia's best pizza is Mundaring (perth). This definately comes close. Very busy, and can take a while to get meal, but worth the wait. Good choice on daily menu - never boring.

“Consistently good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2013

We have eaten here 4 times in the last 5 months, and always enjoyed the meals. The range of pizzas is great - all of the usuals, plus some more interesting gourmet pizzas. They make a really nice Calabrese. I've tried the lasagne, which was a huge serving, and very nice, and my partner has tried the meatballs, which he said were superb, and the steak, which also had a good report from him. We are always ridiculously full, but last time decided to share the Mars Bar Calzone for dessert. OMG - it was so nice! It is served with chocolate ice cream and chocolate sauce, and is just delicious, but incredibly rich.
I would happily recommend this place to anyone for any occassion, from dinner with friends to family birthdays. Great food, generous portions and good value. Make sure you book early or you will find yourself dining at 5.30, 9.00 or missing out altogether.

“Good service, Great pizza !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2013

This is a regular restaurant for us and we are never disappointed. Menu changes regularly and the is always a number of great blackboard specials. What is great is if you have a favorite dish from the past that is no longer on the menu they are happy to make it up you. As for the Pizza's, they are without doubt one of the best pizza's I have ever tasted ! Great friendly, enthusiast and helpful staff make the whole experience sensational. BYO wine is also a bunus. Thouroughly recommend.

“Great Pizza, Good Service and Good Prices”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2012

We recently visited this great little restaurant for the second time and were totally rapted again.

The place is not at Bulli Tops but in Woonona, just north of Wollongong on the Princess Hwy. They have all the traditional stuff one would expect but the gourmet varieties are really exceptional! If you don't like pizza don't worry as they have a variety of other Italian styed food as well.

It does pay to book but they do have take away, don't know about delivery. They are a BYO wine restaurant but don't worry too much as their own stocks are good and reasonably priced. Beers etc are also available.

The service is very good, they look after you without being over-bearing.

If you are staying just north of the Gong, then this place is an ideal dinner destination.
