The food was great but unfortunately customer service was not. We had a frustrating and slightly absurd experience with management who would not let us (a table of 9) use a discount card as the discount is capped at 8 people. In the end, we were forced to split our group into two tables to partly benefit from the discount. This meant disrupting a leaving lunch for a colleague. It was a really disappointing customer experience overall, though the food is lovely!

Service was exceptional by our waiter, pizza ok and 90min table turnaround is a put off - doesn’t make a customer feel valued by the owners/managers and vegan pizza itself was so-so. Waiting staff are brilliant though.

We were underwhelmed by the whole experience.

Staff are friendly enough but don’t seem to work as a unit.

We found we had to ask for our drinks more than once - about 4 times
One of the cups was dirty
The milkshake was pre-packaged (not mentioned on the menu) and lacking in flavour.

We spent a lot for this disappointing experience.

The food was ok but I’m unlikely to return.

Original pizzas which were delicious- ultra thin base with a good crust. To die for salted caramel tart was not to be missed. A bit too noisy but this is super trendy Shoreditch and full of a vibrant, you'd crowd.

Pizza East maybe should change its name - it put me off going there for years thinking it was just for pizzas, but I am so glad we made it there in the end. Love the building and it has a good variety of food. Only downside was it was very hot by the window on the sunny day we were there.

Pizza East Shoreditch never fails.

So great to know that a place, so HOT almost a decade ago, can still totally deliver on both food and experience. Buzzy, cool, friendly, and great value.. the Roast Chicken on Sunday is simply ridiculous in both flavour and size of portion.

Congrats to everyone for not dropping the ball, and keeping Pizza East Shoreditch a real destination place, many years down the track.

Went here last night for a friend's 30th birthday. It has a very buzzing atmosphere, with a warehouse type vibe. We had the burrata and the octopus to start which were both delicious. For mains, we had the black truffle pizza and the san daniele with a side of mac & cheese. The truffle pizza was good but a bit overwhelming (and I LOVE truffle). The san daniele had burratta and proscutto and was really good but hard to cut/eat. For dessert, we ordered the cinnamon doughnuts which were AMAZING. Highly recommend! Overall, it's good value for money and a great place for a big group.

I met with family for Sunday lunch.
Needless to say members of our party were late. Very late.
The remarkable manager Elsa looked after us. She truly couldn’t have been more helpful.
Food was great from start to finish. Roast Pork Belly was tops for me and the Pizza is ,of course, superb.
Only downside was the kid on the table behind us constantly throwing food onto our table. What a little bundle of joy he was.
We’ll definitely be back.

The service was awful, our orders were messed up and delays. The restaurant is far too loud

Our friend ordered a chicken dish but it actually had pork in it, which he doesn't eat, it was not mentioned on the menu that it would contain pork.

Best pizza I ever had! But the music was so loud I had trouble hearing what my company was saying. Also when we arrived to our reservations we didn't feel welcome at the door, more like we were disturbing the ones who sat there and handled the reservations. (sorry we booked a table at your restaurant?) overall the food was great but the experience was not.

Great for a quick bite - fast, friendly service but very lively on the Thursday night, as the weekend starts early in London. My companion was a little hard of hearing and the table is a little larger than other pizza restaurants so surrounded by chatty ambience it was a little hard to have a conversation without shouting. This, however, does not spoil a tasty meal.

Everything was great except the customer service. The food was nice, the atmosphere was great. Everything was perfect. Except the awful customer service.

The waitress kept coming and asked us if we need something, every 5-10mins, after we finished our food. Even we booked the table and we just ate so fast but we stayed there only 40mis. We could have understood we just stayed there longer than as normally people expect. Finally the manager came over and if we need anything else like dessert, we should leave because some people are waiting for the table. Awful customer service.

I went to Pizza East for brunch in group - overall, the choices on the menu are good for brunch; you can even order a pizza if you feel like it. Unfortunately, I choose scrambled eggs on toast with smoked salmon - the portion size was the equivalent to a canape (i think one egg was used in the scramble and the toast was wafer thin) - not ideal when you've not had breakfast. Perhaps they want you to order two or three dishes for brunch? If so, this should really be said on the menu. Also, the coffee was not great considering all the great coffee options in the area and they overcharged me for the scrambled eggs on the bill - they managed to fix this but really basic admin error that shouldn't be there.

Overall, the experience was good. I booked a table for 11 people and the service was good during the meal and our food came in ok time considering the party size. However, there was some issues with the bill at the end of the evening as people in the party began to leave, and paid their way. I appreciate it is hard to split the bill but we ended up definitely overpaying for our meals due to the waiters not calculating the bill correctly as people left, and them losing track of how much had been paid. This did end the night on a bad note which was not ideal, especially as it was my birthday.

I had said that it was a birthday meal when making the booking and there was no acknowledgement of this when we were there - no one even said Happy Birthday to me and it would have been nice if there had been some kind of dessert on the house or if the tiny bill discrepancy at the end of the night was written off for the occasion.

The pizza was really good however, as was the wine, and both were good value for money. I would go back but not with a big group and not for a special occasion.

Really pleasant experience, we were a party of 4 and after muddling up my booking I went to the wrong restaurant so we arrived late, they were understanding, wonderful and accommodating.
The food was delicious. We decided not to have desert. However once we seen the menu all 4 of us had one and they didn’t disappoint.
Staff are friendly, efficient and polite
Thank you

Was not impressed with pizza to be honest. A lot of oil poured on the top of pizza and not much topping.

Nothing special apart from being in a good location. If you like your pizzas 75% crust and everything on the menu just a few quid more expensive than can really be justified. Confirmation call the day before swiftly informed me I had to vacate the table at 10pm did I still want the booking. During the meal felt rushed through the whole thing. Wouldn't go back. So many other great restaurants out there so go there instead.
