    Only the ones that were REALLY backed up to Google. Check on a PC by going into GMail and selecting Contacts. Whatever contacts are there should sync to your phone when you set up your account in it again (and select syncing contacts, of course).

    PS: I'm assuming that by 'restarted' you mean factory reset and not reboot.

    Unfortunately, if you do a factory reset all local data is lost, including contacts. The only way to get them back is if they were stored on the SIM card or if they were backed up to Google. If you created a contact that was set to be stored locally, not Google, then it wouldn't get synced.

    So, if you can't find the contact on Google Contacts, it wasn't synced there (or it was deleted from your Address Book, doing the same from Google's servers. Now, if that's the case, you CAN revert to a previous backup of your contacts in Google).

    As SpookDroid said, look at the contacts at Google Contacts Those are the only ones you can recover.

    Either go into your GMail account and from the drop down menu on the left select "Contacts", or just head over to http://Contacts.google.com and you're set.
