Situated in the Old Biscuit Mill development off of Albert Street in Woodstock, Burrata delivers the best Italian food in the country – receiving the “Best Italian Restaurant 2013” in the Eat Out Awards! The pizza is life changing, but we’ll get to that in a minute.
This modern restaurant offers guests a warm and inviting setting. From the wood-clad and exposed brick walls to the display of the day’s fresh ingredients, Burrata’s attention to detail is impeccable. All of the trimmings of the of a five star restaurant with an atmosphere that says, “Pull up a chair and stay a while – we’ll get the fire going.”
Offering a mix of contemporary and traditional Italian meals, Burrata prides itself on the highest quality food made from the best ingredients available. Remember that pizza I mentioned earlier? It’s made with imported flour and tomatoes in an oven which was brought in from Naples. As in Naples, Italy. The result is a light, crisp crust covered in rich combinations of your choosing.
If pizza isn’t your thing (I’m not sure we can be friends), then you will find something on this menu to love. Starters, pasta, and a wide selection of main courses means you’re spoiled for choice.
Co-founder and owner Neil Grant is a Sommelier who spent 7 years in San Francisco plying his trade. As you can imagine, the wine list at Burrata is extensive. He’s even offered a “Sommelier’s Selection” – a list of wine recommendations which are sure to please even the most seasoned palate. Local craft beers are also on available, including our very own King’s Blockhouse IPA. If you’re looking for something a bit stronger, cocktails and a fully stocked bar round out the drinks selection.

Our Top DPBC Beer and Food Pairing: Burrata Pizza with King’s Blockhouse IPA
We had to go with the pizza, and what could go better than an ice cold beer? The flavours of this Italian masterpiece are rich, and the Blockhouse does a great job of bringing a nice balance to the meal. Save room for the vanilla panna cotta!
