Very disappointed. Can only put it down to personal choice as I have heard rave reviews about this place hence the reason for attending. Staff were brilliant. Food was so lacklustre - appetizers were good so will opt for those if I ever visit again which is unlikely. No would not recommend.

Really enjoyed our visit here! Staff were very polite and attentive and the food is top drawer! Also very good cocktails!

Only gripe is the automatic 12.5% service charge. I know this is standard practice in London but a £7 service charge for bringing 2 cocktails and 2 pizzas is a bit steep! Nevertheless they were very polite about removing it and I was more than happy to leave a (slightly smaller) cash tip! Overall, very good!

Best pizza I’ve ever had in London, hands down! And I know my pizza! Besides pizza there are various high quality antipasti and Italian sides on offer, nice selection of wine and ales and I’ve had the refreshing house lemonade and also hisbiscus, which is always a welcome addition to any menu. Great location, great ambiance but book in advance. They do try and fit you in at the bar if you haven’t but can be a bit cramped.

The salted caramel tart was too thick to cut with a fork and spoon. It had to be eaten by hand, i enjoyed it but my friend found it too much effort.

Date Night!

Food was great, service was super quick and personalised even though it was a busy evening.
Our only issue was the table positioning, we had two people sat at the bar who felt as if they could have easily been sat on-top of us, however didn't seem much of an issue as the night went on. Price for drinks were a bit higher than expected, but we switched up and tried two of the cocktails from the drinks menu which were definitely worth their pricing. I'm not someone who is keen on drinking a glass of wine from a water glass, but have seen it become a fashion in a lot of Italian restaurants. I would have like to have been given the choice to drink out of a wine glass, had there been the option.

Other than that, all round positive! Loved the food, the people, the atmosphere. Would definitely return.

Thank you for your hospitality.

Really great pizza restaurant! The food was excellent, the service was friendly and attentive and the atmosphere was good too. They really pack the tables in so we were tightly wedged at a table behind people at the bar, a better table would have been nice but this wouldn’t stop me from returning.

Came for brunch but have been here for dinner before also. At brunch, noise levels are a lot more quieter so actually found the experience more enjoyable (although the food for brunch and dinner are both of very high standards!) Would recommend the French toast as well as the avocado and eggs on sourdough

The food is absolutely delicious and the service is very good. We’ve been here before and will certainly come back (both for dinner and brunch). The only downside is the prices of alcohol; 10 pounds for grappa and almost the same for a breakfast mimosa is a bit much.

Food and atmosphere were great as always. Not so great to be (politely) booted off the table - unfortunately several people in our party were late, so we had the table for longer than we thought, 2.5 hours which is fair enough, but not ideal to be "on the clock" when you've come out for dinner. Next time I'd book a night when they're less busy.

Booked online and was told after we’d finished our pizzas that we had to hurry up as we could only have the table for another 15 minutes. We refused to hurry, the attitude of the waitress was appalling. Food was mediocre, pizzas were cold. Pricey. Much better pizzas in and around this part of London.

Been Dinning at the establishment since first opened but have noticed that the bar staff aren't as vigilant and attentive as they used to be, lack of eye contact when wanting to order additional drinks, my guests and myself noticed that the meals did not look great considering establishments ambience that's been created through its interior fit out.

No communication or interaction with any bar staff or management in relation to whether we were satisfied with meal or service, hugley disappointed as this was our go to place of recommendation to all our business associates, friends, and family.

I'm sure the Restaurant will deal with the matters but this must be highlighted.

Booked pizza east due to locality to hotel. We could not have been more impressed! Cocktails were immense, food (particularly the pumpkin and dolcelatte, and croquettes) was incredible and service was speedy and friendly. We will definitely be back.

Pizza East has a vibrant, buzzy atmosphere. I had the cauliflower carbonara aka cauliflower cheese which I enjoyed forllowed by the burrata pizza which was lovely. We had the rocket salad where the dressing was a nice, sharp counterpoint.
