    The pizza here is possibly one of the best that you will find in London. Very authentic, delicious and filling. The veal meatball pizza is a must try. Very friendly staff and great value!

    Big, buzzy Pizza Place in the centre of Shoreditch. Delicious Pizza & sides, calamari and croquettes are good! Nice wine too! It gets busy but you'll get a table quickly, big groups should book!

    Without a doubt the best pizza in London. Their vegan pizzas are always amazing I also make my own vegan pizza if I don’t fancy the one on the menu. I wish they did a few more vegan options

    Awesome vibe, service is good, and the pizza is surprisingly great (had the eggplant pizza). Sweet potato app also very good. Everything very fresh

    Probably the only pizza place I've been to where the starters and desserts are as good as the pizzas. Pizzas with unusual but great ingredients (had one with Taleggio and Guanciale!), I'll be back!

    Tasty starters 😝 yum! Make sure you book in advance on Friday night as the waiting time can be more than 30 mins. But you can wait with delicious cocktails and the food is worth it

    I feel a bit weird about the recent menu additions (Sunday Roast??) but I guess this has to be on the list - anyway, loved the thyme-kick on the Prosciutto & Mushroom. Nicely put together pizza.

    The bar near the entrance has wonderful light and a wooden bench... one of my favourite spots for a drink in London...

    one of the most delicious pizzas that I ever proved! amazing place, stylish people, great music! very near from the tube, easy to find. The parma one is still in my heart!

    Industrial ambience and thin, puffy pizza baked in gas-fired ovens with just the right amount of topping. The Shoreditch branch is probably the biggest but also the noisiest. Book in advance! Read more

    Hard to know where to start. The Veal Meatballs pizza is so delicious, but you'll need to complement it with something less heavy. Anything with San Daniele on it gets my vote. Good negroni to boot.

    it's no Rubirosa or Delfina but the pizza is solid and the restaurant is perfectly casually chic. go with the veal meatball. the garlic bread and croquetas were surprising highlights!

    Always great. Quality stays same for many years already. Recommend mac and cheese, one of best ones I had in my life

    The veal pizza is amazing, but what sets this place apart are the excellent starters. The burrata bruschetta is highly recommended. Lively and loud place.

    Great ambience and best pizza around London. It's all about the service and the cocktails for me though 👏

    The pizza is good but the highlight of the evening was the antipasti, a range of meat and cheeses that comes with soft tasty bread. Winner.

    Unusual toppings, crispy base, oozing cheese - tick, tick, tick. Salami and broccoli pizza gets a thumbs up and with the bone marrow you get a massive portion of richness..

    Prepare yourself for more cheese than bread when ordering the bruschetta, and be careful with the chilli flakes. Pizzas are great also...

    Probably the best pizza in Shoreditch. Great vibe and a tasty menu. It gets very busy, so be prepared to book or wait for a table.

    My BF's dad, a very fussy Yorkshireman, declared that this was the best pizza he'd EVER had. Even though the wait for a table is terrible....I will always keep on coming back. So damn delicious.

    Don't come expecting Lombardi's, but if you're with friends and want a buzzy spot with snacks, wine, and pizza, this is hard to beat by London standards. Perfect for late Sunday afternoons.

    I ordered the veel pizza, the base was delicious and crispy but the topping was really salty. Next time I will choose a different topping.

    Really enjoyed my pizza but no where can get the ratio of tomato to pizza right! Less tomato more cheese please. I am a dairyholic! Service was good and fab atmosphere!

    At Pizza East expect to see the legendary ten-inch pizzas covered in the likes of duck sausage with shaved artichokes. Dining at the Pizza Bar offers prime view of the wood-burning ovens.

    I am grateful for the chilli flakes on the table, hard to find them in a pizza shop in London. Oh? And the salted caramel chocolate tart...

    Mmm! The veal meatballs were excellent. If you eat there between Thurs-Sun, ask for a key ring; it grants you special discount powers for the other days

    Make sure you get a side as the pizza is on the smaller size. Crust can get too crunchy (it could be fluffier) but the ingredients/toppings are top notch.

    Love the amount of Italian people working here, that's what it makes it so good. Take the buffalo mozzarella, tomato, basil pizza. Simple but amazing.

    The buffalo mozzarella pizza (10£) tastes great, but it's war with these toppings that won't stop sliding off!

    The meatball pizza is very tasty. A bit salty though and you don't need any appetiser with it.

    Atmospheric surrounds... not only the interior decoration but also the achingly hip customers. Just make sure you have Google at the ready to figure out what some of the pretentious toppings are.

    Amazing antipasti, almost felt as if I was in Italy. The courgette flower with broccoli one is the best.

    The salted chocolate caramel tart is what it must feel like to have Jesus massage your tongue.
