But that should not take away from the quality, and sheer quantity, of the pizzas on offer. As you enter, Amigo's extensive menu comes into view on the right-hand wall. Being a regular, it is still a challenge not to be overwhelmed by the myriad of choices available.

On current count, there are 20 traditional pizza choices, 20 gourmet pizza choices and 10 specialty pizza choices. In terms of traditional choices, Italiano and Supreme were outstanding choices; while in the gourmet selection, the Mediterranean and Zambrero are well worth a try (caution: the sheer amount of toppings makes it a really filling meal, so bring as many hungry souls as possible). The specialty pizzas include some exotic themes, such as Moroccan Lamb and Smoked Salmon.
Complementing the pizza menu, or possibly serving as an alternative to pizza fare, are a myriad of sides (spiral fries, onion rings); ribs and wings; salads; pastas; mains; risottos; burgers; kebabs and desserts.
Throw in a coffee menu, and you might be left wondering how extensive their kitchen will need to be in order to accommodate this menu.
Another major plus point for Amigo's is their quality of customer service. Among all the places I've patronised Down Under, Amigo's staff are some of the friendliest and most hospitable I've interacted with.
For a relatively small enterprise, Amigo's has already acquired a decent reputation. Current accolades include the 2010 Causal Dining Award and the 2011 Small Business Award.
As for tonight's dinner, the Zambrero gourmet pizza, overflowing with mushroom, roasted capsicum, pineapple, chicken, Italian sausage, cabanossi and herbs, along with spiral fries, make for a really hearty meal, along with an explosion of flavours from the various toppings.
With pizza sizes ranging from small, large, family and party sizes, gluten free pizzas, calzones, and a special discount for traditional pizzas on Mondays and Tuesdays, the customer's essentially in charge.
I'd go on record and say that Amigo's Pizzeria is one of the best in the business in Adelaide, and long may that continue.
