Pizza East - Portobello
Just like our big brother in Shoreditch, while we take our pizza seriously the setting is very relaxed. We’ve stripped the building’s interior back and created a light and airy space with wooden floors and huge windows, then filled it with beautiful vintage cafe furniture. The in-house wood-fired ovens and open ground floor kitchen mean there are great views to be had inside, especially from the antique stools at the counter, or you can sit outside and watch the world go by.
Our upstairs dining room is an even more laid-back sitting room, as is our terrace, a little green haven away from the hustle of town, where you can have drinks or dinner.
Great food and drinks. Hate we didn't find this place until the last day of our trip.
Good quality food, nice lively atmosphere, good pizzas.
Loved it xx
Lovely staff, great with kids, great food and we were served quickly.
Food was good as always, pizza is very good, however, the service was very disappointing this time and has been declining for quite some time.
Been going to Pizza East for more than five years but I feel like it’s just not great anymore.
Also very sad that they don’t allow dogs inside, it’s such a neighbourhood gem with so many pups in the area.
Nice atmosphere and really good pizza in a charming area of London’s
The food was epic as always. Sophie and Frederica were wonderful and made it great fun as always.
When we came in the hostess said we can seat on the bar but it was really crowded and my friend is corona freak after half hour no waitress came to take our order from the bar as we didn’t had any choice the nice hostess said that we can move upstairs to a table near the windows so that’s was nice of her to do that. The prices are way higher than any other good pizza places that I’ve eat before, how come a lettuce salad with a few avocado cost £12?? The sauce of the pizza is good but is a small mozzarella pizza worth £13? Definitely a no. And a Tuna carpaccio £14 that’s way higher than any other place. Unfortunately I won’t be eating there again.
I am a big fan of Pizza East but haven’t been there for a while and the pizzas look like they have shrunk since we were last there and it is expensive. £41 for 2 small pizzas and 2 cokes!!
Nice environment and service. The menu could be a bit more diverse, but good quality food.
Wonderful Sunday lunch, great food amazing service by Honour! Thank you to all other staff for looking after us. Keep up the great job.
Outstanding on all levels. I love dining at PizzaEast and hence I always choose to dine there with my friends and family
A lively, vibrant place to eat. Staff attentive and friendly.
The pizza was very tasty, however overpriced and quite small.
I'm Italian, and seeing pizzas priced £15-£20 just hurts my soul.
The wine was also incredibly overpriced: £32 for a half litre of Vermentino, when I can normally get a decent bottle for £20-25 pretty much anywhere in London, seems a bit unfair.
I enjoyed my meal there, but I wouldn't go back, there are tons of pizza places in London that have the same quality, fair prices and also more choices of pizzas. And fairly priced wines too.
Really great buzz and food. The French waitress was great !
Great staff. Very friendly
Great experience and services. Can step up the pizza quality !
The French lady on the door who is the maitre de was amazing, as was all of the team upstairs, we had a big party with lots of kids and everyone was so nice, accommodating, relaxed and helpful. Even when we stayed well past our slot, everyone was lovely about asking us to move on. Great evening, great team, thank you xx
Amazing food served piping hot.
Really friendly and attentive service - thank you again.
Really delicious food with lovely wine - staff are so kind and accommodating! Couldn’t recommend this place more.
Unique restaurant with amazing food, one of the best pizzas I've ever had.
Friendly and trendy staff.
Will definitely come back.
I can't say enough good things about Pizza East, the service I received was really of utmost quality and that was all due to the Manager Sarrah (no I don't know her but feel like I do now after the care and effort she placed into making our dinner a night to remember. She's the definition of service with a smile and went above and beyond to ensure we had a great night, we hadn't been sitting at our table for 15 seconds before she arrived with some bread and olive oil-very much appreciated after the two mile walk to get there). I used to work for Disney and train Guest Service in our employees & Sarrah embodied these same types of superior talents and she is why my wife and I will return. The truffle pizza was out of this world as well. Thank you Pizza East for once again providing a memorable evening with stellar food.
Great staff. Very friendly and accommodating. Best pizzas around
Super really. Shame it’s expensive, but worth it’s
Nice place for simple classic dishes
I booked for lunch with my 3 old friends and we were given a fantastic table - with great service and the most delicious food, we all enjoyed ourselves enormously and I have already booked to come back - many thanks to all.
We love Pizza east! Delicious. We come here often for our team lunches. x
Best pizza in town
Best pizzeria experience! Best vibes! Best pizza ever! Such fine ingredients and fine quality! Another level of pizza
Incredible service! We were very very well greeted and seated by the loveliest of hosts!
I highly credit the team and especially Sara who enhanced our experience and hospitality by miles!
Can’t wait to go again
Been 3 times this week alone 😁
Looooove the pizza best in the world!
lovely place, lovely food and wine, lovely service too
We just love Pizza East Portobello. Divine atmosphere, service, ingredients - and of course heavenly pizza.
Everything was perfect. Great food, atmosphere and lovely service!
Very bad experience paying a hefty price. Had 2 pizzas, both undercooked, both spicy and oily. My wife did not finish hers because she could not continue with the spiciness, we ended up eating next door after we had pizza...pathetic.
Service was dismissive, felt like they did not want our business. Never going back again.
Charged 60£ for 2 pizzas and 2 glasses of wine, absurd!
Hi Craciun, Hope you are well. I am sorry to hear about this - what is the best email to contact you on to follow up on this? Thank you Georgia
I do enjoy going to Pizza East but it does surprise me how expensive it is compared to more exclusive, independent restuarants in the same area or even central london.

Food was terrible and overpriced even more since lockdown
We often come here, as the food is nice, good prices and it's a buzzing, fun ambience. Very child friendly too, lots of families, but also nice to go with some friends. Has a lot of outdoor seating now too which is nice, although inside is just as nice.
Great pizza and drinks! What else can you ask for? Will definitely go back!
We hadn't been to Pizza East for ages but we found that every element - food, service and ambience - were better than they used to be.
A lot of the items on the menu eg the Crab Bruschetta which my friend and I loved, were, thankfully, not Pizza, and there were some delicious desserts as well eg an excellent lemon meringue pie.
A number of people served us and they all had a great, relaxed, friendly vibe.
Fabulous afternoon, sitting in the sun, great staff, food and wine
Took my daughter and her friend and they said it was the best pizza they’d ever had. The menu is limited but what they do, they do well. Lovely crisp light pizzas.
