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.

Best meal out we’ve ever had. Amazing service, friendly waiters, good value, brilliant food. We left feeling comfortably full and wishing we had Pizza East in our hometown!

I booked a table 45 min in advance and we were seated in fashionable time on a bank holiday Thursday night. My pizza was OK and my side salad was was good. I was hoping for more vegetarian options on the menu. I would also prefer to have my wine from a wine glass, but I guess when in Rome...

The food was fantastic actually quite surprised. The set up of the table wasn’t brilliant and pizza toppings kept falling in our drinks. Staff were ok but not so coordinated as we ordered more food later also we felt a bit rushed to order as the waiter kept coming over and asking.

Great buzzy atmosphere, service good considering how busy it was. My pizza was tasty as ever though perhaps could have done with an extra 30 seconds as it required more knife work than usual. Not enough to put me off, no way! Like Arnie, I'll be back...

Pizza was very good, but desserts weren’t the best, panna cota too sweet and it was more like vanilla cream, not enough gelatine. But the design of the place is stunning!

We had a lovely time - the kids loved (and ate) their food, and our Pizzas were delicious. The staff were all super-friendly and we didn't have to wait long for our meal. It was all very easy, and we enjoyed our visit a lot. Thanks

Service was good, however the pizza was very light on the cheese. I understand that the pizza style is not heavy on the cheese, but our pizzas were only lightly dusted with cheese.

Great venue. I had avacado and eggs on toast but sadly the bread was swimming in the avacado. Simply way too much. Service was quite slow unfortunately. All in all, it's my second time here and I'll continue to visit despite some shortcomings.

Served frozen Aranchini as a starter which ruined the meal. We all felt sick and then completely ripped off when we were charged £35 a head at the end. Would not recommend

It’s a lovely mixture between hipster and Italian. Beautiful, dimplit restaurant that is suitable for dates and get togethers. Noise level is moderately high but that suits the place. Food is slightly disappointing even though it looks good on the menu. Price is okay. Service is efficient!

Pizza East is always a fun and lively visit. The food is in keeping with a mid-range establishment and was up to the standard to be expected. We shared a calamari and prawn starter followed by the San Daniele pizza which is super! We sat at the bar and the staff /service was great. Been before and will go again.

Lovely food and friendly staff but 5pm on a Friday evening we were cold,sat with our coats on. When we asked to move it appeared a bit of a problem although restaurant was not very busy and they moved as two tables along...not much warmer.

Really great place to take friends for a night out, great atmosphere and good authentic tasting pizza. Fairly expensive but it’s what you’d expect from the location and it’s way above a pizza express or zizzi. Was slightly annoying that we had booked in advance but still had to wait 10 minutes to be sat down but otherwise service was fine.
Great place overall
