Do not order the Gluten Free pizza. It comes out half cooked and terrible. It was sent back for a regular crust. Which was ok.
We also hade to wait 45 min for our salad.

Excellent service and great food. Our Swiss waitress was lovely and attentive. The gelato was delicious and beautifully presented. We booked a standard table and got a high table but no probs. Beer on tap would have made it perfect. Will definitely revisit!

There is nothing good about their pizzas which is all we tried so we confine our comments to that. 3 different pizzas all inedible due to tasteless base, yucky cheese and stingy toppings....$6 for a glass of coke that didn’t taste like Coke....very poor value overall. Wanted to love this place but cannot understand all of the rave reviews. Go somewhere else.

Nice venue upstairs off the Main Street. Definitely book ahead if you have kids- we got to skip ahead of a very long queue. Excellent pizzas, best base ever, although the buffalo mozzarella was a bit wasted on the kids and we had to pick it off. Service was a little slow at every stage.

Cocktails were 90% ice so two sips and there finished...
Pizza was burnt and you couldn’t eat the crust, which is usually the best part.
Maybe due to the fact it was so busy quality had dropped, pretty disappointing as it used to be amazing pizza.
On a good note ice cream was definitely delicious though that’s not why we went there!!

Get rid of the blonde air head that forgot our wine twice and stood around for us to pay with the eftpos machine even though we said we were going to pay cash twice.

Great atmosphere, nice menu. Unfortunately Burrata was out so we took mozzarella as a starter. Mozzarella with flat bread an San Daniele. The SAN Daniele was rolled, only 5 slices, too thick. Not really tasty. The platter came with mixed pickles; strange combination. Pizza (Shrimp) was very tasty. Also the Drinks. Fancy but good.

My family enjoyed a lovely casual dinner at El Capitano. We were welcomed with a friendly smile and the great service continued through to our departure. The pizzas were very tasty indeed and with a little rooom let in the tum tum we indulged in some beautiful Maleny Gelato. Yum.

Got placed in the worst seat in the restaurant, next to the front door where the takeaways are picked up, empty tables else where though. Waiter didn’t know much about the wine, also spilt a cocktail across the table. Pizza come after waiting 40 minutes and pepperoni pizza was only half covered in cheese..it wasn’t requested like that. Not a good first impression, I’ve heard nothing but great things and awesome pizzas from here. Disappointed

Casual spot in the middle of Noosa Heads. Perfect after a day at the beach or hiking. Their pizzas are amazing and the atmosphere is laid back but with great service.

However when asked for special occasion, it was daughter engagement celebration , (who got engaged the night before here in our Noosa family holiday ,) we thought we would get complementary glass of champagne at least for the couple , but nothing so bit disappointing when you get specifically asked
