We walked in and ordered a take-away. While we waited we had a glass of wine which was lovely and generous. The service was friendly and we didn't wait long.

We all had pizzas which were delicious. Lovely thin based. They can uplift the service a bit. Friendlier, remember what is ordered.

Great place in Swellendam for an evening eating out, Italian style! Very good pizza loaded with goodies and Itialian meatballs on tagliatelle and a nice bottle of wine. Last but certainly not least: Gerrit made our evening complete; thanks Gerrit!!

We only had a takeaway pizza but it was excellent. The restaurant seemed to be full when I called around and the staff very friendly and helpful. Lots of other choices on the menu too, definitely worth a visit.

On researching somewhere to eat in Swellendam we decided to try Woodpecker Pizzadeli, which turned out to be right next door to where we are staying. The staff were extremely friendly and the pizza absolutely delicious, they were served piping hot and very reasonably priced....More

No one should drive through Swellendam without stopping for a pizza here! Best pizzas in the world! We always do take aways when staying over on our way to Cape Town.

We visited on a one night stopover in swellendam. The restaurant is quite small but has a pretty good pizza menu. We both enjoyed our pizzas and the restaurant is great value with great service.

This Italian Restaurant was a perfect choice for a Sunday Afternoon Lunch. Great service and food with a relaxed outside area. A perfect place with the sounds of birds around you

Seating cramped. My Regina was not the greatest but my wife enjoyed her pizza which was different. Waiter very slow and seemed new. Had to keep waving for assistance

Best pizza I've had in a while! I was amazed at how 2 waiters managed the restaurant quite efficiently and with such a positive attitude. Will definately go again when we visit swellendam again.
