They only let us have the table for 1.5 hours, even though when booking it said that we would have if for 2.
I used to visit Pizza East Portobello regularly as the pizza was always very good, the restaurant had a cozy and cheerful atmosphere and the service was kind and efficient. However, last night I had one of the worst pizza I’ve had in a long time. All the pizzas we ordered arrived cold, they were so hard it was almost impossible to cut. When we complained we were told by a waitress that the pizza chef was in training so that is probably why this happened. The restaurant was almost empty, and we were out at a table by the door right by the door. It’s a shame, but we will not be coming back soon.
Very relaxed breakfast experience for families with kids. There were several other families there on Sunday morning, the coffee was good and the children enjoyed the colouring provided by the hostess. The food was more geared to adults (the pancake was not sweet, 2 kids ordered and did not eat it and instead had pain au chocolate) and the egg dishes were delicious. We had a nice relaxing long breakfast and thoroughly enjoyed the experience - which is unusual with 4 children in the group.
always very good but service always a bit off. they always forget about us for a while
Fabulous - as always. I will be back soon (as Pizza East well knows by now!!).
I really like Pizza East. However, last time we dined there the service was slow and uncoordinated. The restaurant was full but they could have made an effort for the last two plates to not arrive 20 minutes later. The food itself is really good as is the ambience of the place.
I travel to London ofen and i always choose Pizza East Portobello for a date .
The best place in London :)
I’d always heard good things about Pizza East and wanted to take family there for food.!There were hairs on the napkins and a few strands on our food. It was super busy and didn’t seem as if enough staff were on hand to cope. Considering the prices - it’s not super expensive but not cheap either - I expected better.
As usual, we had a lovely time at Pizza East. Great table, bathed in sunshine, fabulous food and most importantly, fabulous and friendly service. Thank you, Pizza East!
Our waiter was wonderful! Highly recommend this venue.
Taste sensation pizza. So glad I don’t have to travel all the way to Shoreditch for it.
The olive oil had finished (in a pizza place) and the wine was served in a water glass.
Great food for a great price with the loyalty key chain. Service can be a bit slow when it's busy and occasionally foreign waiters/waitresses can misunderstand food/drink orders. Overall 4.5/5
Really great pizzas - everything tastes really authentic and great quality. We were there early evening on a Saturday and there was a really nice vibe with a few families and people having early dinners. Would definitely go back and recommend!
Our waiter and evening was amazing but we were a bit unhappy that they weren’t offering the same pizzas like in shoreditch!
Salt baked salmon, Luke warm, awful presentation. Had to be sent back.
Good food, good vibe
Great neighbourhood restaurant. Perfectly located near Portobello Rd for a nice stroll before lunch. Pizzas were delicious as was accompanying green salad which was dressed well. After lunch coffee was well made, clearly by someone with proper barista training. Service was first rate and staff were attentive without being overbearing. Great ambiance and tasty food, will definitely return.
The atmosphere was excellent, as were the Pizzas, Cocktails and service. My only comment would be that the Macaroni Cheese was lacking in flavour. I would suggest grating cheddar and adding a little salt into the bechamel. The topping would be far tastier if it was cheddar rather than mozzarella which is crusty but tasteless. At the very least, I would add more parmesan to bechamel and topping.
Overall, happy to go back but would stick to the Pizza.
Fantastic New Year's Eve meal here. Excellent service (very attentive) and great food. Really enjoyed the sides with the pizza - really good flavours. A perfect end to the year!
Great relaxed atmosphere with good menu choice and great food. Really had a lovely evening
Loved everything- food, service, music! Our first visit to the portobello PE and we will be back for sure
Always a solid choice, good menu and good vibes. Only bug bear is they serve wine in cups as opposed to wine glasses! That’s just my personal preference though, wine is superb!
Always a reliable fun spot. Consistent professional crew who all seem to get along well together too. Super for dates as well as family with kid night/lunch out. Thank you
First time at Pizza East, very American vibe. Food was great, salads were amazing. Friendly staff.
The only thing which would have made it better for me would have been more comfortable seats , otherwise great.
Every year "my daughter, two Grand children and myself," WE comme to London to visit my cousin for a week-end before Christmas.
And WE Love having lunch on the Saturday at PizzaEast. This was really lovely once again. Thank you very much,

Very nice food for a "pizza" type place. Great location at the end of Portobello Road market. Ambient atmosphere.
Excellent pizzas, the service was good, and the place is nice. The total bill is not cheap though, but we'll probably go again anyway.
The music was far too loud - clearly set for the enjoyment of the staff, not the customers. Food was ok (we had the Mac & Cheese and two sets of hot vegetable sides), but nothing to shout about. Staff were a bit hands off. My friend asked whether they had diet tonic and our waiter never came back to confirm either way. Not a great dining experience by any means.
there were 6 of us and we really enjoyed the food and the ambience good job
This place is great ! I would drive across town for it. Love the food, the atmosphere, the location, great for families, but also great with friends. It is cool, fun and delicious.
The aubergine starter was very delicious but the pizza was ok, not as good as I was expecting it to be. The Green lavender drink was delicious. Unfortunately, there was a large table next to us who were very loud and unconcerned with the fact that they were disturbing other diners by being very loud and banging into our table. We then had to move so it did ruin the atmosphere for us.
Delicious pizza and friendly staff and they provided an ice cream birthday candle for my granddaughter. Very nice
The service was too slow. We thought we had been forgotten. The pork belly was not as good as it used to be.
Great trendy spot, lovely pizzas and good cocktails.
Good food but terrible service - they cannot handle the Sunday rush. We had to ask repeatedly for several drinks/condiments/menus.
Very reliable, great pizza, great service, great atmosphere
Great food and service as usual. The crispy pork belly is to die for!
Pizza East is a lovely place in the heart of London, walking distance to the famous Portobello Road. I love this place, have been to it a few times now and can only reccommend it!
The food is amazing, the waiters, all italian, are super friendly and help you out with all your choices. The wines are fabolous and you know that the waiters know what their are talking about when suggesting one.
I will come again all the way from Germany to eat probably the best pizza outside of Italy!
