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.

We go to this restaurant regularly, service is exceptional, staff are always friendly, warm and welcoming, good food reasonably priced, can get a bit loud in there depending on which time you go and which table you’re seated at.

The tables were so close together with no space to go though so we kept getting bumped by everyone trying to get past. The music was awful. The food is very ordinary. They then got us the wrong bill for someone else’s table. Really ordinary place with ordinary food. Not sure why it is so popular!!

I had been waiting to eat at Pizza East for ages as I heard it was the best pizzaria in London. It's not. Pizzas are good but not worth the cost for a quick family bite out. The restaurant is fun and energetic and the staff are really lovely but we were all disappointed with the pizzas.

Pizza east is one of my all time favourite restaurants, however this time I was taking two of my friends here for lunch with me and it wasn’t as great as I thought it would be. The food, as always, was delicious, however I thought the staff could of been a bit friendlier. When we payed we ended up getting the wrong change and the old 1 pound coins. I found this upsetting as we thought they may of been taking advantage of us. However this is a one off and on a normal basis I absolutely love this restaurant, the staff are fabulous and the food is out of this world amazing!

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.

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’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.

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.
