I took my wife here for her birthday. Neither of us can fault it. The food was beautiful and the serving size of the pizza and pasta was great. Amazing atmosphere and view. Great value for money and worth the trip for lunch or dinner. Will be back.

The wood oven was well staffed with waitresses who answered all of our questions. The pizzas came out in a timely manner and were very tasty. The menu shared none of its secrets and we were pleasantly surprised. Each of our pizzas had a good balance of flavour that will see us visiting time and again.

Spent the weekend at Nelson Bay and discovered a jewel in there crown . A family run business a great pizza place , fantastic food and great service. The new restaurant is vibrant stylish and clean you can see straight into the kitchen which I think is always a good sign. The views from the terrace are second to none.... More

I was pretty grossed out and unhappy... More

First visit since the restaurant moved and what a surprise the environment they have created is relaxing while still being full of energy. Pizza was excellent with great service. Do yourself a favor and give it a go.

Our first night in Nelson Bay we decided for ease to have a takeaway pizza from Wood Oven. We were so glad that we did. The pizzas were delicious and among the best and tastiest we have ever had including in Italy. I had the prawn and my wife the supreme, both were excellent. The garlic bread also was lovely....
