Great relaxed atmosphere. Serving staff very friendly and attentive. Food was absolutely amazing. So nice to go to a restaurant with my daughters who are both vegetarian, and for them to be able to choose anything from the menu. Pizza base choice was great too as there was a choice of Gluten Free. Altogether a wonderful experience, we will be back.

The restaurant was really nice, the ambiance was great. Pizzas are amazing. Plant based meals aren't for everyone but if you are one who likes it then you will enjoy it.

They had their homemade cola. Personally I wasn't a fan of it. Maybe some might enjoy it but I was more happy with water than their cola.

Fantastic to have a completely vegan pizzeria and the food was delicious! It was a busy Friday night and they seemed short staffed but the waiter was lovely, just a bit too busy!

I rarely eat meat and try to reduce the amount info eat. So I try a lot of Vegan stuff and it varies in quality. This has to be some of the best I’ve ever eaten. Vegan cheese is usually disappointing- not this time. Very good food and I wouldn’t know it was vegan unless I was told. Service was great and prices are better than the rivals.

Alternative meat-oriented vegan pizza. Great if (like me) you can't eat tomatoes. But I would have liked more greens on my pizza.

Purezza prides itself in being the first vegan pizzeria, and for this fact alone it should be lauded. Finding tasty plant-based alternatives to use in pizza is a major challenge, and overall Purezza met the challenge very successfully. Let's start with the really good: the pizza dough is simply perfection. It can be eaten alone, it's that delicious and light and flavorful. We opted for the Friarielli pizza and the "tellin porkies" one. The melted vegan cheeses (different in both pizzas) are good, but one has to get used to it. The consistency is more bechamel-like than melted cheese, and the flavor is certainly different than the original cheeses (mozzarella and cheddar, respectively). We also ordered the rocket salad, which was slightly underwhelming in that the rocket was slightly "tired" and it all clumped together with the balsamic glaze. It was still good, but could be better. The service was meh, our waiter a little cold and aloof. Overall we had a nice evening at Purezza, ate well and very much appreciate the effort and the result in making a 100% plant-nsed pizza. We'll probably come back, hoping that some glitches are just ... glitches.

I think they had a bad night. The starter never arrived, the Lasagne I ordered came but was cold in the middle; the replacement came 10 minutes later and was also cold (chilled) in the middle. The server told us that it came out of the fridge and went into the oven for 10 minutes (so I'm not surprised it wasn't heated through). They took off the cost of a glass of wine and gave us free garlic bread, but then added on the cost of a bottle from a neighbouring table. On the plus side the pizza my colleague ordered tasted great. Good concept so really disappointed.

The dough is delicious. However the pizzas were far too/ tongue burningly salty - we were absolutely starving, love salty things usually, but could only finish half of our pizzas each! (Which we struggled to even get that far). The service was poor from the minute we walked in. No one came over to us for a long time, then no one asked for our order for such a long time, no one checked if the food was okay, then it took about 30 minutes for someone to give us our bill. I have never written a poor review, but I’ve been so desperate to come here for so long, and was just so disappointed. Will come back again and give some other pizzas a go, but definitely asking for less salt.

Really lovely delicious food! The tables were very close together and way to many for the space and so it felt very loud and chaotic. Friendly staff but they seemed understaffed so we waited an hour for food, would go again for take away but probably not a dine in experience.

Ate here before but this time pizzas were not as nice. My pesto option had way too much pesto so was sickly. Ambience was lovely but service was a bit slow and ordered a dip that never turned up. Slightly disappointing but I would book again to give it another go.

Purezza is a vegan Pizza restaurant. They do a great job of making a plant-based pizza taste as good, if not better, than the non-vegan equivalent. I'm not a vegan but enjoy eating there simply because of the quality of the food. Factor in the reasonable prices, it really is one of the better pizzerias in Brighton.

In short, Purezza is not a great vegan restaurant, it's simply a great restaurant.

Beautiful pizzas, and amazing choice of plant based toppings, as well as a reasonable range of drinks to go with dinner. With hindsight we would have shared a pizza as they are a generous size. Lovely place and the staff worked really hard to look after everyone. Will go again

I have been a few times now but remembered it to be better than it was. Doughballs used to have lots of melted cheese in but last night there was the tiniest amount tasting like a ball of dough. Overall it is still great vegan pizza and would recommend but was disappointed about that.

The restaurant is quite crowded and loud, and although they allow dogs in there, there is no space for the dog to actually sit other than in the walkways (often in dog friendly restaurants they fit under the table but not here!).
They completely forgot to bring out our olives, going straight in for the pizzas which were burnt.
I have eaten here in the last and found the food to be delishous, but this times was such a dissapointment, especially for the price.
On past experience I would recommend to a friend, but not one hoping to take their dogs

If you're vegan, it's lovely not to have to worry about what you can eat, and if you're not, all the food is fabulous anyway.
Can't recommend this place enough
