The Pizzas are great and the Pasta is awesome too. Have been here a few times when visiting the south coast and have never been disappointed. Nice outdoor seating/ dining area thanks to recent footpath upgrades and some cool old time surfing photos and posters...More

Truly the best pizza in South Australia, so good we are here 3 nights in a row. Fantastic selection of interesting main meals and very tempting deserts, also caters well for vegan and gluten free. Highly recommended

Loved sitting outside in the sunshine on a cold day enjoying a warming cup of coffee and some tasty food. Staff were so friendly and helpful which made it a memorable experience. Worth a visit.

We ordered takeaway pasta, parmigiana and pizza and it was all really scrumptious! Would definitely go back there for food again!

Friendly helpful staff. Wide selection of pasta and pizza's to choose from. We decided on takeaway as it was a cold night, service was quick. Would have no hesitation in visiting this restaurant again.

You MUST try the American burger. Holy God! it's so good. Pizzas are pretty bloody good too. I usually get the yiros pizza or the meatlovers ... but no matter which one, it will be good.
