Lovely pizzas - fresh, perfectly fried in the wood oven

I go to Pizza East on a regular occasion and normally the food is good, however on Saturday my Pizza was undercooked in the middle and very runny. I contemplated sending it back but the restaurant was very busy.

The food was amazing and reasonably priced. The Bellinis were delicious! The staff were attentive and really lovely! Great location just 2 minutes from Shoreditch overground station and just across the road from the box park.

Food was very good, service was so poor, not very impressed and found it over priced.

Food was great. However the service was extremely poor when it came to paying. I have a PE Lovers card, which entitles me to 50% off food and drink as on the card but when the bill came, I was told it didn’t apply to drinks. This was the first time I’d heard of it. I booked through open table, and received no messages indicating that the 50% off only covered food now, not drinks. When I arrived for the booking, I was told the table wasn’t ready and to go to the bar, but nothing was said regarding the PE Lovers card only applying to food now. It was only when the bill came that we were told that drinks did not apply. Obviously we wouldn’t have got as many drinks if we had known this. But the waiting staff and then manager refused to accept our card. Eventually they did but not once our experience had been ruined. Things could’ve been made so much clearer by staff saying before we ordered food/drink about the new policy, or with clear signage, or at the beginning. Very disappointed PE.

Great atmosphere, the restaurant was buzzing. A simple meal of olives, almonds and pizza with a glass of wine was good value. The wine was Really good and the pizzas were great, super fresh and tasty and interesting toppings rather than the norm. Will be back!

very nice pizzas with very nice staff. The pizza took a while to come but the starter was brought out very quickly. the staff were apologetic for the wait and clearly very busy but remained friendly and warm towards us.

Very nice spot for family and friends very recommend

The menu was very poor for gluten free / vegan options- had a gluten free version email but difficult to read. Should have a printed menu.
by MichelleG on April 13, 2018
Was a great night. A lovely menu with lots of choices, not the same old stuff as at other pizza places. Really good service considering it was busy. Food was fresh and really tasty. Service staff were friendly and prompt. Thanks Pizza east for a great night.

by AileenP on April 12, 2018
Great pizza and ambiance, only issue was a 15 minute wait for my table despite booking before hand.
by ClaireS on April 12, 2018
Great place, trendy, laid back, lively and fun, fantastic food not just for pizzas. Great for large tables and small. Have eaten here with girls for lunch and returned for an evening table with family to celebrate a birthday. My teenage children thoroughly enjoyed this place too.

I went to Pizza East with 8 of my work colleagues. The service was very prompt, friendly, professional and the food arrived in a timely manner. The pizzas were excellent, I haven't been here in about 4 years and they are still very good! Highly recommended for a team night out.
by HeleneL on April 11, 2018
Waiters coming every 2 minutes to remove plates, ask about the order, the restaurant is nice but you can't be alone 2 minutes. I felt a lot of pressure on the timing and it makes me unconfortable.
by Dolly on April 11, 2018
My pizza was all bread, burnt and no topping Very sad that this vibrant place has lost the art of making good food Not sure I’d go back
by IanF on April 08, 2018
A favourite location of ours, always perfect, great pizza and great Sunday lunch - live the brutalist look
by DavidH on April 07, 2018
We attended this restaurant on my partners birthday celebration as I have been to pizza east before and know the food is lovely. Again the food was lovely when we visited on 7th April. Unfortunately my partner was sat on a chair in the restaurant that had a nice lump of chewing gum on that got stuck all on her jeans. Quite ironic as we were there celebrating her birthday and they were a birthday present. This maybe something for your establishment to look out for in the future.

The pizzas were very good and the service was very fast. Perfect for group dinners.
by ElenaR on April 06, 2018
We visit this place everytime we visit London for it's oven baked Mac and cheese. Unfortunately, this time the Mac and cheese didn't have the breadcrumbs and the place was too loud. I couldn't hear the person next to me.
by Marko on April 06, 2018
Was late. They gave the table away which is fair enough. Seated us at the bar instead, after 30 minute wait. Ordered the prawn pizza for curiosity’s sake as much as anything. It was soggy. But tasted fine. Service is OK. Hipster cool. Overall it’s a scene focused pizza restaurant selling cold beer and soggy prawn pizza. Not sure what the fuss is about. Incredibly busy so obviously I’m the idiot.

As ever food was incredible and we have a 50% discount so fab value. Service was a bit rushed and our waitress has no knowledge of the menu so couldn’t recommend wine or food.

Amazing pizza

Beautiful place pizza so good like the Italian tradition and service so good and funny
by PegLee on April 01, 2018
Absolutely perfect venue with the loveliest staff and delicious food. We had a great Sunday brunch/lunch with our Californian cousins. Thank you!
by CWWW on March 29, 2018
Great atmosphere and open later than most. Friendly staff and reasonably priced for great tasting food.
by OpenTable Diner on March 29, 2018
The problem is the noise - music is so loud that you have to shout to communicate - so everyone is shouting at everyone else. Not a relaxing experience and food not good enough to lose voice for!
by OpenTable Diner on March 25, 2018
Sehr laut, Pizza für die Preise (~15£) relativ dürftig belegt.
by COJO on March 25, 2018
A really good value brunch for the area and also one of the few brunch locations that take bookings. Very nice and helpful staff. Recommended the steak and it was fantastic!
by OpenTable Diner on March 22, 2018
Great pizza as always. Only criticism is how loud it is in there, it’s quite hard to chat.
by Fred on March 20, 2018
Pizza was good, desserts quite disappointing. The bar is really nice and me and my friends had a great table by the window with a great view. Overall a good experience even though the noise level was pretty high and was hard to talk.
by PizzaLoverLover on March 20, 2018
Disappointing. Pizza had a great base but toppings were a let down. Indifferent service.
by LaurenB on March 18, 2018
Great service and amazing pizza! Would definitely visit here again, especially nice as it’s so big and you do not feel cramped in.
by MichaelB on March 15, 2018
Excellent as always - great food, reasonable prices, good staff and drinks
by ABCB on March 14, 2018
Tasty Pizza - slow service and super loud! But fine for a midweek dinner. Not sure i'd return, as i've had nicer pizza in London, but great if you want a really buzzy atmosphere and loud music.
by BenM on March 14, 2018
Always reliable for good quality food and good service
by EvaB on March 12, 2018
Really enjoyed the visit! Food was great, service very good although it was super busy yet the atmosphere was fab!
by Pablo on March 12, 2018
Consistently good! Difficult to get table but great food, service and ambience.
by James on March 10, 2018
Good fun at Pizza East. Service was good but Pizza’s could do to be a bit more cooked in the middle.
by Lauren on March 10, 2018
Great pizzas. Expensive drinks, £35 for a bottle of prosecco is excessive. Great veggie options. Had a vegan friend - adapted for her
by stefanof on March 09, 2018
Friendly staff, informal athmosphere, good food. always a pleasure to go there.
by SUEA on March 07, 2018
Shame - I used to Love pizza east! Pizza was dry And uninviting last week. Hardly any toppings ! I won’t be returning in a hurry. Nice ambience though and waiter was good.
by DanP on March 06, 2018
Great tasting pizza with good service! Definitely worth a try
by kh2017 on March 04, 2018
great place, would wholeheartedly recommend for great pizza and delicious healthy/veggie options
by RoxaanJ on March 04, 2018
We went for brunch but ended up getting a roast dinner. It was delicious and well presented. A little pricey but it was good quality meat. I would go again!
by HannahD on March 02, 2018
Although this came up on all searches for a gluten free Pizza restaurant that wasn't a chain, they informed me before our arrival that they in fact didn't offer gluten free pizza options. This was disappointing as I had been really looking forward to be able to eat pizza! Also the gluten free options that were offered as an alternative were salads, which isn't exactly what you want as an alternative when you're in the mood for a pizza... My other half enjoyed his pizza so would recommend to those who can eat it!
by PiedroM on February 28, 2018
Great place. Pizzas perfect. Meat not special. Very very noise. The acoustic is terrible.Staff very friendly!
