“Most enjoyable”
Reviewed 1 January 2014

After a very disappointing meal at La Sosta the prior evening, we really enjoyed our pizzas at Woodpeckers. Really commendable and some of the best pizzas we have ever eaten.

“Friendliest Ambience”
Reviewed 28 December 2013

The ratings of other visitors to this quaint non-pretentious eatery are completely accurate.
I could not fault the service, the waiter was attentive and friendly (which always helps when visiting a new place).

The food was good - we ordered pizza. Although a bit chewy at times - it was very tasty.

“Lovely pizzeria”
Reviewed 9 November 2013 via mobile

So pleased that we found this place as I was in the mood for some good Italian food. We ordered a pizza and a pasta and it was absolutely delicious. Loved the relaxed atmosphere and if we were staying longer would definitely be back to try some of the other dishes.

“Quality of Pizza has slipped”
Reviewed 27 October 2013

We live in Swellendam, and have ordered many pizzas at Woodpecker during the 2+ years we have lived in Swellendam. We have always had very good service, and the pizza's were the best in town, and we have taken overseas visitors there on a few occasions. Yesterday we met with family from George WC, and 4 of us went to Woodpecker for pizzas.

We ordered our usual, the 'Elvis' pizza, and our guests ordered a different pizza. When the pizzas arrived at our table the first thing I noticed was a decrease in pizza topping compared to that which is usually served. Our guests (who have also eaten at Woodpecker in the past), were also disappointed with the very sparse topping.

The service from waiter staff was excellent as usual, but I left with the feeling that Woodpecker is trying to save money by reducing pizza toppings. I hope I am wrong.

“Delicious food, great staff.”
Reviewed 25 October 2013

We had dinner here when we had an overnight stop in Swellendam. The waiter was fun, full of smiles and efficient, the food excellent. Some of our group lingered over their coffee and wine beyond closing time which bothered the owner not at all. He put the Closed sign up, allowed his staff to go home, and assured our friends that they could remain as long as they pleased. Great service all round!
