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.

Good ambience and good service. Truffle pizza = terrible. Overpriced for very dry pizza.

This is rapidly becoming one of the best restaurants in Notting Hill. Food, drinks, service, atmosphere all more or less perfect.

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.

Staff are amazing. Always friendly. Usually run off their feet.
Music too loud and dated. but bearable.
Food always excellent
prices moderately high reflecting location and no doubt ground rents

Oh my goodness the food was amazing! Really great range on the menu, something for everyone. The service was outstanding.
I highly recommend the pizza with the ball of burrata on top - heavenly. I wouldnt have the bellini again - maybe the prosecco was a little flat - but it wasn't worth making an issue out of it.
Would happily go back and try everything else!

Great food and service. It was my friends birthday brunch and it was just the two of us, but we were given a lovely table by the window. Will be going again, a lovely chilled out vibe in there and you don’t feel rushed.

Love this restaurant one of my favourites but the service was not great on this occasion. Half the table had finished their pizzas by the time the other half arrived. Still amazing place, great ambience. Food lovely.

smaller pizzas
£5 for 2/3 of a pint (they’ve actually shrunk the amount of beer you get!)
Plastic plates
Filthy toilets and stairs.

Hate to be that guy, but wtf has happened? Pre covid you were great, now I’m not sure I’ll ever return.

Food has gone downhill, very basic food priced far too high for what it was. Service great but music too loud on top of all the people inside shouting at each other across food.

Lovely to be back, sat outside which was nice. Generally very happy, but waiters could have been a bit more attentive, and the pizza wasn’t as good as it used to be - too much crust and not enough toppings. Will still be back though!
