7 of us ate here. Some of the best food we've had, everyone agreed. Much more than just pizza. The pork belly was amazing!

We chose the restaurant as a meeting place for friends from outside the UK and because it was close to where we were going. We were greeted warmly when we arrived and the food and service were very good! There is so much more than pizza on the menu which was a happy surprise. When one guest had an issue with his meal an alternative was quickly proposed by the server. I chose cod as my main and it was outstanding. We will go back again.

It was too noisy and I could hardly understand my friend during our dinner. I also had the feeling that everything was a bit rushed. Didn't make me feel very welcome.

Really expensive for what it is. Also bugged me that people were getting food for half price. Food was fine but many better restaurants in London ! Won’t return.

As it should be the best thing about Pizza East is the pizza itself. The base is exceptional and the toppings delicious. For me, it's the best pizza in town.

The menu is inconsistent with saying if a Pizza has a tomato or cream base, as some simply don’t say it and some do. My partner ordered a pizza thinking it had a tomato base, as it seemed to be the most obvious based on the ingredients, but received one with a cream base instead. When she mentioned that she thought it would have a tomato base, the waiter laughed as if it was a joke, then left. There was no option to have anything changed. Despite this, the time of cooking and the general vibe was lovely, as it has been for myself personally every time I have been. My food personally was lovely - it was just made into a bad meal and bad memory because of my partner’s situation. Would prefer if the place was a bit less hip and a bit more straightforward and clear with their menu.

I have enjoyed Pizza East in Portobello on several occasions but this vast restaurant in Shoreditch lacks the same quality. It’s too large & busy, the room is far too loud and unfortunately the staff lack training on how to deal with small issues effectively.
My pizza was lacking in topping and I commented that at least half the pizza failed to have the listed topping on it. They took it away and placed it with exactly the same measly amounts. Too much tomato, barely any cheese, microscopic pieces of anchovy on only half the slices. Profit margins must be tight or something. Sorry but I won’t be returning.

My friends pork belly was so greasy the plate was swimming. He had to leave half of it.
Obviously we can’t say it’s 100% related but shortly after we left later in the afternoon he was sick and had an upset tummy.

Unfortunately I don’t think either of us will be returning

My partner and are big fans of 'Pizza East' and this time we took two friends for their first visit. We all had such a great time. The ambience is terrific, as is the food, cocktails and the staff. The restaurant is a neighbourhood gem and well worth travelling for if one doesn't live close.

This was my third visit. However there was some misunderstang as the restaurant said we had the table for 1 and a half hours ,but as a part of 3 I understood we had the table for 2 hours. This was the information on my confirmation ,if this is incorrect, it needs to be amended.

Drinks were very pricey & my Aperol spitz was a small size & I specifically asked if this was a traditional long drink (large glass etc) it came in a small martini type glass, no ice. It Tasted so syrupy & strong so not an Aperol spritz. Almost like flat iron bru. Yuk.
Worst I’ve ever had.
When I asked for the glass to be changed to larger & some ice. I pretty much had to explain what am Aperol spritz is meant to be.
Not very impressed.
Food was lovely but for almost £10 I was not happy about the drink situation. Sorry.

I booked the meal for my boyfriends 30th birthday. The service for the entire meal was awful, we waited over 35 mins to be asked for our orders - one meal arrived 15 mins after everyone else's and the waitress was very dismissive when we bought this up with her - nobody came over during the meal to see if everything was okay and we were having to constantly flank the waiter or waitress if we wanted anything. Overall I was incredibly disappointed as it was booked for such a special occasion.

I'm a regular at Pizza East Shoreditch and its always very good if not excellent. But unfortunately last Sunday the service was very slow and both the team in the kitchen and waiters seem to be having a bit of laugh which I think is good as long as they don't forget the customers!
