Beat pizza and basque cheesecake I’ve ever eaten, accompanied with great selection of wine. Intimate and cosy inside, great for groups or dates.

Intimate space with a cozy vibe. We had a few wines and shared some starters and a pizza. Everything was fantastic, especially the sourdough pizza. Service was charming. A little noisy at full capacity. Highly recommended.

What a lovely and intimate space you have created. The ambiance is warm and welcoming and the food, wine and service were fabulous.
I would very much recommend this place for a cosy, small group.

Woods Yards is a local’s favourite, great service from Kris & Aaron. Stand out is the wine selection, wood fired pizza and daily house-made cakes, interior is like a warm European wine bar.

Our table of 5 was escorted outside due to 'lots of noise complaints from other patrons' without being given a warning. We had shared 1 bottle of wine and ordered plenty of food, we weren't being lewd or swearing. It ruined our night and the staff handled the situation very poorly. We were given negroni shots as 'compensation', but the waiter had poured them from a bigger glass of which drank the rest himself in front of us. We were also then overcharged when it came to paying. Incredibly disappointed and will never come back.

The best sourdough pizza! Beautiful ambiance and lovely lighting. Best kept secret in South Melbourne.
