Pizza East - Portobello is spread over two floors of a restored Georgian pub, right in the middle of the bustling Portobello market area and includes a deli trading in ingredients such as polenta, fave beans and risotto rice, as well as Italian cured meats and cheeses.
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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

Waiting staff and bar staff were attentive and efficient. The managers were not so friendly, I was on crutches and they didn’t move out of my way or offer assistance.
Ambience was relaxed and the noise level was ok . Overall a nice Saturday lunch although vegan options would be appreciated and would update the menu .

First time we’ve been and we were nicely impressed. The stripped back bare walls and ceiling gave a modern contemporary feel which was welcoming and the tables were well spaced.
Food was good, a short menu is a good sign that everything will be cooked to order and it was. Lovely crusty bread with olive oil was perfect accompaniment to pre dinner drink. The crab bruschetta was delicious and piled high ( though it was £14 )
Pizzas toppings were generous and tasty.
The staff were delightful.
Would definitely go back

So pleased to be going back I do like PE Porto a lot, if i do have criticisms then the beef carpaccio had far too much olive oil on it, it really shouldnt have any but it was gratefully changed . the avocados tasted strange but i ate them anyway the pizzas were of course wonderful. i'll be back soon

The food is great, and the staff is amazing! Going out for us means people that serve to be at their best and they were absolutely wonderful!
We spilled a drink and they helped us to clear up, when in reality they don’t have to, so cheers to them and a big thank you!

The pizzas were made from wheat and there was no gluten (wheat) free option. It was such a shame for me as the pizzas my granddaughters ate looked delicious. They certainly enjoyed them. At four and two years old they gobbled them up. The chicken dish I ordered was good, but as a pizza based restaurant I was disappointed.
