BD's was extremely busy the night I was there(Bong Bong Race day), so not the idea timing. To their credit, the service was prompt & cheerful. I'll be back.

Twenty hungry friends in a private room proved a very enjoyable night. Food was very nice and well priced. Kept coming until we were stuffed. Staff polite and patient. Happy to go again next time we are in Bowral

if you looking for good pizza not chain store this is great I found buying early gave me better pizza as being wood fired I found later orders tended to have a char factor - still good but not as good as earlier Highly recommend the satay pizza

Salted, lightly-breaded squid, followed by a well-topped "supreme" pizza with garlic and anchovies made for a great meal.

I remember this place use to be great, bit different now. Marinara pasta had two prawns and one mussel and the veal saltimbocca was extremely small and had a little bit of steamed vegetables, for $26. Not worth it at all. Average average average and underwhelming.

I don't know how Italian most of the staff are, but they turn out some great food. We've sampled the pizzas and risotto and both were brilliant. Also, you don't wait forever for your food.

Have been here on our last visit, this time didnt dissapoint. Pizza's are to die for. We had a margurita pizza & a ricotta & chicken one. Couldn't fit dessert in! We took a bottle of wine, which was only $2 pp for corkage. Service friendly & good.

I was in Bowral for just one night and looking for a reasonably priced place for dinner! It was a Wed night and at about 6.16pm BD's was almost one third full! It then filled up quickly and I hadn't made a booking! What a surprise! Lots of different groups eg couples, local families so it seemed good! And it... More

We decided as a family to try a woodfired pizza. It was a good decision. The staff were friendly, the atmosphere inviting and the aroma divine. After ordering the only issue was that our drinks order was forgotten. My wife had the bruscetta which she loved. The mains consisted of pizza and veal schnitzels. The food was hot and extremely...

Went on a Monday night and it was busy! Good that it was open as well as so many aren't on a weeknight. Food was very good - I had slow cooked lamb shanks - delicious!. Staff are efficient - not overly friendly - but good. Prices reasonable. Only negative, my husband had profiterols for dessert - ok, but not... More
