Team are always fabulous in Purezza, super friendly such a joy to eat in there. Food was ourstanding as always. It does tend to be noisy in the and hard to hear the team with masks on as well.

Went for dinner with a friend and pre-booked our table. Took 25 minutes to get served our drinks. Seated at 1945 and didn't finish our mains until nearly 2130 as the food took a long time to arrive...shame as previously have had great service here. Food was great but wouldn't hurry back based on service alone.

Sorry to say it wasn’t a positive experience we found the food bland overly sauced it was literally dripping with wetness and sloshy bits of mozzarella clumps ,garlic bread hardly eaten as it was mostly just doe.Dinks of homemade coke was difficult to drink overall disastrous and put the whole evening negative,fairly priced if it was more edible perfect for some perhaps but won’t be coming again I’m afraid didn’t want to complain so close to Christmas but wish I’d just stayed in and cooked myself was what everyone said afterwards.Such a shame especially as money has been tight and wanted to have a joyful evening -P.s love that dogs are welcomed but barking dogs errr and in such a inclosed space perhaps not so hygienic as they where jumping on the seats etc but no one said anything.Oh lastly the food took a hour to arrive a party of 7 got served food at least 20 minutes before us despite arriving at least 20 minutes after us!!

This was a birthday celebration and we chose Purezza because we had some vegans in our party, and wanted them to have a wide choice of dishes instead of the limited (and predictable) choices available in most restaurants.

The food was delicious, and as a meat eater myself I enjoyed my pizza every bit as much as (if not more than) a ‘normal’ pizza. The wine was excellent too 😊

The service was also extremely good and I would highly recommend Purezza.

One pizza was great, the other horrendous- barely any ingredients and base tasted awful which for the price was a waste. We ordered extra ingredients and got one mushroom cut into 4.
Covid wise, no staff wore masks and everyone was piled in very close to other tables which didn’t feel safe at all. Will not be returning.

We enjoyed the Christmas menu. The calzone was so flavoursome with all the tastes of a lovely vegan Christmas. The mince pie dough balls were so good with the cream without being stodgy. Staff were attentive without being intrusive and the small issues we had were easily rectified.

It may not have been the direct result of employees on the day that the Starter was- we were told, to be served at the same time as the main... why was it not a side dish then?
We were the first group, for the evening food service and there was no one upon arrival ahead of us, and our ordering food. We were not offered (the paid for within the more expensive Xmas menu) - Xmas crackers, neither did they mention them.
When I ordered coffee for some of us, upon paying my bill I was not listened to, that it was to be made for my guests whilst I left and brought our car around. The coffees were being made when I pulled up outside and as we had wanted to go. This was 25 minutes later after I left, and paid. Someone there is just not listening to customers.
This review is my first but not my first visit to Purezza. This was not the first time the service has been slow beyond belief. Typically restaurants come quickly to your table for the ordering of drinks and food. With my booking, I made it clear we were going to have each their full Xmas 3 course menu, but it was some time in the empty restaurant until someone came to us.

Probably the best Pizza south of Camden. We came from the Midlands to visit family and I wanted Pizza. There was only one choice. Actually two, but this site is bigger than St. James Road in Brighton. Had a great time and the service was something to be proud of.
Would we come again? Definitely. Highly recommended.

Lovely pizzas, I would say the best I have eaten other than in actual Italy and they were on a par with those. Loved that it was all vegan . I’m usually not a fan of vegan cheese but the mozzarella was really good so good that I have ordered some online from their websiteService was good and the venue was nice. Will definitely visit again when I’m back in Hove.

We love the pizzas. A bit disappointed in the rocket salad we ordered. A tiny bowl was presented which was lovely but seriously over priced .
Not that there is a serious competitor but even pizza express( vegan pizza obviously nowhere near as good) give you a bottomless salad option !
Ambience and service always faultless .

Birthday meal with sister and wife - food was pleasant but could have had some deeper toppings, and was thick crust rather than thin. The service was slow, although very friendly; it may have been the kitchen was short staffed that night. I had only mentioned the birthday on the booking but it was remembered and a brownie with vegan ice cream and a lit candle was a fitting ending to the night. Good to see veganism is alive and well in Brighton, albeit in this case only from a pizza point of view.
