Great food and service, but I requested a nice table as we booked for a special occasion, and I’m pretty sure we had the worst table in the restaurant!

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.

Great food in the heart of Shoreditch. Good service and lovely food. Always lively so maybe choose somewhere else if you don’t like a noisy atmosphere.

The Pizzas have really gone downhill. Virtually no topping on a premium pizza. Won't be going back. The cost accountants have struck!

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!

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...

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.
