“Good family pizza place, but now CLOSED”

While living locally we were regulars at this place for many years, most recently in January 2012.

Consistent pizzas, management very friendly to our kids, great for parties and casual pizza dinner or lunch.

But... unfortunately the building owners have forced Wood & Stone to move out (along with the few restaurants next to it) from March 2012. They are relocating to Dee Why, not nearly so convenient for tourists

Wood & Stone wouldn't have had to try hard to please us on the day we visited. We were absolutely famished and thirsty too; we had been walking all morning. It is therefore inexcusable then that we should be so let down. Our pizza and drinks came to the table about half cooked; the cheese only just melted (and not caramelised in any way); the other ingredients only warm; the beer not a lot colder than room temperature; the price at the upper end for a pizza. Usually we'd send it back, but because we were so hungry we begrudgingly ate it. It isn't as though the waiter could have thought it cooked because you could see the cheese was barely melted.Often when my wife and I are asked by a waiter how our meal was, our politeness prevails, but this time we almost sounded scripted, such was the exactness of our sentiments. Utterly pathetic and completely unimpressed.

We just happened upon this pizza place and loved it. The owner was there and very nice. The pizza was VERY tasty! We liked the wood-fired flavor. We wanted a light lunch, so we just got one pizza to share and that was plenty for us. But, it's not a large pizza, so keep that in mind when thinking about how hungry you are. One pizza would have been too much for one person, but maybe not enough for two people if you're famished.

We've been going to Wood & Stone for years and have always had a great time there. The food is always excellent, a good choice of wine and friendly and fun waiting-staff. If you want formality, this is not it, but be prepared to have a laugh with your waitress/waiter, and they'll look after you.
However, you can tell a lot about a restaurant by their loos, and here they have slipped a bit.
Get the basics right - and a few more reviews - and you should advance up the list of good restaurants in Manly (of which there are many!)
