    From the moment you walk in you are absolutely spoilt with sensational food, wine and service. The best pizza going around and the antipasto is to die for.

    We love the food @ Woodstock. The best Roman pizza in Melbs. And thanks Gaia for taking care of us so well! What a great experience. Also the neighbourhood it’s nice and tidy.

About the restaurant

Success story

Woodstock Essendon is the third in a series of eateries concocted by Tony Cannata, whose family has been running restaurants for 20 years. It is impossible to summarise the contents of their menu because Nonna - who is in her late 70s - trots down to the market to pick up the latest and freshest items to cook for you, her guest, tonight. Blackboard menus designed on the day are ever-changing and you never quite know what is going to be on the menu. This family was the first in Melbourne to have and run a wood oven, built for pizzas in the early 1990s. Now using only the finest tomatoes and pizza flour, they specialise in creating a dining experience of the highest and most authentic Sicilian calibre, that will have you feeling like you have been royally spoilt when you come here. An absolute must to visit, come and allow yourself to be swept away in this place of nostalgia and comfort food.

Best dish: The pizza, of course
