Tucked away down Chalk Hill Road, and touted by locals as the best pizza in town, it’s not hard to see why Pizzateca has quickly become a much-loved McLaren Vale institution.

With an atmosphere that makes you feel like you’re part of the family, and a setting reminiscent of a welcoming Italian home, it’s easy to while away hours in this gorgeous place.

But what makes it stand out from the rest? The pizza.

Not just your run-of-the-mill variety, Pizzateca pizzas are made in the most traditional way, with techniques passed down from generation to generation and using only the freshest, locally sourced ingredients.

Wood-fired with a soft, airy handmade crust that never sees a rolling pin, it truly is hard to beat. Take your pick of toppings, from Marinara, Salami and Margarita to a mushroom-packed Bianco or Quattro Formaggi - that literally translates to ‘four cheese’ - it truly is a pizza-lover’s dream.

And if you like a bit of spice, don’t forget to ask for the chilli oil!

Of course, it would be remiss to dig straight in without trying something from their ‘entrata’ menu, that includes such traditional delicacies as arancini and antipasti, before moving on to the main affair. And the beverage list is just as appealing, offering a range of local wines, premium beers or spirits to choose from.

And if, by the end, you’ve got room to spare, let your friendly hosts tempt you with some traditional, homemade tiramisu.
