Imported from the back roads of Rome and Napoli to the hip streets of London, Pizza East- Shoreditch will fuse the creative-cool of Shoreditch to the vibrant tastes of Italy. From the small plates to the individual pizzas that give us our name, we prize only the finest ingredients, precise preparation, and presentation by the warmest, coolest, most knowledgeable staff this side of Barolo.

Birthday meal for partner - very disappointed with food as starters were tepid and had to send both pizzas back as they too were tepid and the cheese had hardened by the time they arrived at the table. They were replaced by two fresh ones but they were only just warm. £7.00 for some lettuce and avocado was steep; not good value but at least it wasn’t hot.

Had been looking forward to trying Pizza East but most definitely won’t be back. Found staff a tad lackadaisical in there attitude and all in a tiresome experience.

8 of us ate for under £170!
Food was amazing and fresh! NO complaints from any of our party!
Very noisy however was a Friday night! Even when busy the space was not cramped!
Cloak room at entrance (free).
Very happy with experience and would 100% go back!

Pizza was really good, I was pleasantly surprised by it. The atmosphere was also quite buzzing although pretty loud so conversation turned to shouting sometimes which isn't ideal. Also the table we were given was very cramped, like they'd tried to squeeze another table into a space not big enough for one. Overall I would recommend Pizza East and as long as you are OK with a very loud dining experience then the pizza is worth it.

I would recommend but didn't have a brilliant experience was ok as we was late and sat on the bar to each which would of been fine if the restaurant didn't squeeze in 2 extra guest (added extra chairs) to fit people on the bar as it was extremely tight and the people eating next to my friend had his elbow hitting her as he was trying to eat but was not his fault as he was squeezed on... not pleasant but I have been before and was nice eating at a table

Really tasty food, but very expensive for what it is and we had to hang around for ages even though we had a reservation and were on time, Make sure you reserve as it’s rammed!

Nice restaurant in a good location but a little pricey for what it is. Much nicer pizza restaurants in London for a cheaper price. It was also very noisy when we went.

We've got the beef Sunday roast, was very good but the portion very poor, especially the potatoes, only 3 in a plate!!! A bit disappointed for the price we paid.

I had a four cheese and black trufa pizza and it was, with a huge difference, the best pizza that I've ever eaten at London. The place is nice, the service really good, and, just being picky, it was quite noisy.

One of my favourite restaurants but the food was cold, the pizza and the mac and cheese. As it was a birthday celebration and other things were organised after we didn’t have enough time to wait for it to be reheated but it was incredibly cold like it was sat waiting For at least 20 minutes before it arrived to the table. Incredibly disappointing

our experience of food and the table was great. The service was very slow. After brunch was served, we were left for around 30 minutes before anyone asked us if we wanted another drink or dessert. All of the tables around us were being served.

Great experience, perfect waitress! Delicious food! I will be returning!

One recommendation PLEASE can you add a few more varieties of pizza’s to the menu! The Diavlo is a wonderful pizza served in most places and would go down a storm in your restauranr

Arrived at pizza east, was quiet lots of tables free. We thought we booked a table for three although (probably my mistake) it was only for two. Instead of Pizza East just changing our table or adding an extra chair onto the end they insisted that we had to sit on one of the shared tables, which was fine and we agreed to do so. They made us stand and wait at the bar along with around 20 other people for around 15 to 20 minutes until we were seated. The waitress brought menus over where we waited for another 20 minutes without even being acknowledged! So we left and walked out. Not good enough especially when it was so quiet with hardly any customers. Would not recommend.

Een hip restaurant, met toffe inrichting, heerlijke olijven en lookbroodjes, lekkere pizza's en vriendelijke bediening. Minpuntjes: erg lawaaierig en prosecco drinken we liever uit een fluteglas.

We had a great lunch an members of staff were really prompt, friendly and fast.
We'll be back. Pizza was good, slightly different from what I had other times, maybe the pizzaiolo changed, but it was good anyways.

Thanks

The ambience is great but the food is pretty average. It's a good venue for taking kids as there's a lot going on around them and the restaurant also provides activities to keep them occupied. It's also good for big parties because of the buzzy atmosphere. However I've had much better pizzas elsewhere.

I have dined at Pizza East so many times and with so many friends and every time the experience is simply amazing. I love the food; the atmosphere and the way I am always looked after. This restaurant is a star.

Went for a bday meal w a party of 10+. The food was lovely and didn't have to wait long for it, and our waiter was v attentive!
Shame we couldn't stay at our table to have a few drinks after as the bar area was quite small and couldn't fit all of us
Overall a lovely evening, thank you!
