    We haven’t been for a year or so and remembered we had a lovely meal last time with a great menu so thought let’s go back for a date night - my husband and I. Unfortunately it wasn’t great, the menu was totally different, the food came cold, all wrong timing and also had no taste. They were kind enough to offer dessert on the house but we just couldn’t wait to leave. Unfortunately we won’t be returning.

    Unfortunately standards seemed to have slipped here. Waitress was very pleasant but our pizzas arrived before our antipasti. Quality of the antipasti was mixed, squid was good but the croquettes lacked flavour and the stuffed courgette flower was greasy. Pizzas were a bit soggy and lacking in topping. I used to love this place but I wouldn’t rush back.

    Really love Pizza East, but our service was very poor. We came here before a concert in the area and our server got our drink and food order incorrect. Luckily, the remaining staff I think realised we were unhappy and stepped up to help her out.

    I’m a big fan of this restaurant. Pea and fontina fritters were delicious, super crispy squid and a good marguerita pizza though I would have liked a little more topping and a bit less crust. Service was super attentive and charming. When we came in we were tempted by a refreshing goblet of aperol spritz we saw another customer drinking. It was so good I ordered a second which came in a tumbler. Not the same drink at all, the proportions were all wrong. Staff told me they only had 2 goblets and it was ‘ not company policy’ to serve them in the goblets! Really! What a shame as it ruined the drink. The lady on the next table sent her tumbler back, good on her. Please listen to your customers, invest in a few more decent glasses You will sell more if the drink is good and your customers will be happy 😊.

    Very nice and chill restaurant, with amazing food, and especially great pizzas! It's usually quite quiet, which is very pleasant next to the busy Kentish Town area. Every waiter is really nice and keen to help you with any food allergies. You can also find many vegetarians options, which was deeply appreciated.

    Margherita pizza is my standby and the best way to judge a pizza as there are no shmancy toppings to hide under. This one was very good--fresh, tangy sauce and good chewy crust, if very slightly underbaked. Ambiance was casual and hipster and service was very nice.

    I guess me and my friends have been dining to Pizza East for at least 10 years. The last two times we have been the food and service has been very poor. What used to be a vibrant restaurant is now empty by 9pm. Our food was cold and one main course missing which meant my friend waiting a further 10 minutes Not difficult for the waiting staff to count how many people at a table (3) and check if only two main courses required!.. Regrettably we decided no more meeting up at Pizza East.

    We went to Pizza East on Kentish Town to celebrate my daughter’s 8 th birthday after school on a Friday. The best part was how relaxed the staff was about the children making noise or exploring the venue. Very relaxed evening. Just what one needs on a Friday.

    Staff were very helpful and pleasant. The music was rather loud and we moved to a quieter table in the corner. There was not much choice of food for vegetarians - even many of the pizzas included meat. And the choice of ice creams was limited - only strawberry and vanilla, no chocolate even. The cocktails were good, as were the desserts. Not a place to make a detour to, but fine if you are in the area, and want a casual place to eat at.

    Tues deal brings the price to good levels - food is decent and the service started well but everyone disappeared when we were waiting for dessert menus. We gave up the idea and just asked the barman for tea which was swiftly provided.
