The possibilities for this will definitely vary depending upon the phone model as Android phones differ in hardware and what is affected when the phone is wiped/formatted/overwritten. If the phone is rooted, and/or if a new ROM was flashed to the phone, that will make things yet more uncertain. If it is a Samsung, older model Motorola or older model HTC, ...

It depends on what kind of backup you want to restore. If it's an XML backup (bookmarks, messages, call log or Wi-Fi access points) then you can restore it.
