Wood Pizza. Silverlake

Went to Wood Pizza Friday night. Friends in the neighborhood go there and suggested it. Minimalist with ordering at counter. Limited menu with no changes or substitutions and not stated. Tried to order a portobello mushroom with grilled eggplant and anchovy on the side. I stood for 10 minutes trying to place my order. Finally placed it thought it was expensive 49 dollars, for one pizza one salad a coke and water. Went to sit down hubby looked at bill and asked why I ordered two pizzas. I looked at the receipts and sure enough he charged me for two pizzas where I ordered one pizza and two toppings. The salad was tiny and had no flavor. The pizza came with little sauce, less cheese and less mushrooms. Pizza but into 4 large slices and there was small slice of mushroom on each slice. The man told me that they weren't a fast food place and that they only used imported ingredients from Italy. The pizza was lousy service fair but didn't know what they could or could not do.

        thank you so much for posting this. i was curious, i pass it a lot and wondered if it was any good.

        1. re: paprkutr

          Parsley? Interesting.

          Any basil on there?

              Vafanculo!

        2. re: JAB

          That was my first thought too.

        3. You are having some really bad luck.

            Don't I know it two days in a row. Then we were out to lunch today, and this guy in the booth across from us was speaking very loudly. Every other word out of his mouth was F this or b this. We ignored him and then he looked our way and called us f's. We asked for the manager explained the situation and they went over and took care of it. After they left others came up and also complain how loud and annoying they were.
            Maybe it's time for us to stay home.

            1. I drive by this place everyday on my home. I never see more than 2-3 tables occupied at around 8pm. Don't see this place lasting very long.

              1. Desano's on Santa Monica nearby is a million times better.

                  I'd say it's more like 734,024 times better but that's just splitting hairs.

                  1. re: JeMange

                    Still better than Tom's Burgers...

                    1. re: cls

                      Never ate there. Frankly, I was scared to.

                2. My son said they told him they are still in soft opening stage and plan to take down the Tom's sign when they are "really" open. I should hope so. My coworker ordered a burrata pizza and they put ricotta on it and then argued with him that they were right and he was wrong. I think I'll pass.

                    lol awesome

                    1. re: Chowpatty

                      The Silverlake restaurant curse strikes again! Surprised they didn't tell him that he didn't really WANT burrata on this pizza...

                    2. Actually that looks like a nice pie. The cheese/sauce/dough/topping ratio looks typical for a Neapolitan pizza.

                      The cilantro is a caution, though.

                        What about the mushrooms, like none. And why couldn't they put eggplant on?

                        1. re: paprkutr

                          Maybe you need a calzone.

                          1. re: mc michael

                            I don't need a calzone. My complaint I'd maybe there was a total of one half of portebello mushroom on the whole pizza.

                      2. Was really excited for this place to open - a good, neighborhood, wood fired pizza place. But everything I've heard (down to charging for water) sounds like a nightmare. Hoping they get it together quick or give the space to someone who can,
