    All I can say is have the meatball dish and you won't regret it. Buzzy every night but can be difficult for couples to hear each other- better for groups. Oh and have the passion fruit cocktail.

    There really isn't much to say. From starters to the pizza, all were amazing. With such a great atmosphere and amazing food, it's on my to-do list for every London visit.

    Pork was ok but underseasoned could have been softer an slower cooked, veal meatball pizza was excessively salty but bread was very nice...all in all ok little overpriced I feel for the quality

    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!

    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.

    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

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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!

    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!

    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.

    Pretty good,but a little bit overrated, the place is nice but the pizza are not the best and why all the advices about the meatball one? that is definitely too oily and not a real good pizza

    Food was really amazing! The room is huge and was really busy tho so acoustics are terrible. Not easy to have a conversation without yelling at each other.

    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..

    What used to be the best techno venue in shoreditch is now the best pizza restaurant, excellent menu with loads of variety recommend the salmon if your not in the mood for pizza Read more

    Very busy and noisy. Tried their pizzas twice - wouldn't recommend. It's a good place for evenings when you're drunk and want something quickly. Pizza on your table in less than 7 minutes.

    Good atmosphere, but too loud music. Drinks are below the average (£24 for 500 ml of not drinkable wine . Service is fine. I recommend dessert "Prosseco Jelly": original and very tasty

    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!

    Old fave that's too noisy, too busy and too drunk to ever get truly boring. Great place to cover up a bad conversation or a potentially taciturn date partner. Pulled Pork Pizza isn't half bad either

    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.

    Had an odd experience here, on asking for la bill the waitress returned with a slice of cake & a candle (boy's b'day) nice touch, til I found they'd charged me for something I'd never ask for; weird.

    Think that broccoli doesn't work on a pizza? Think again. The spicy sausage, mozzarella and tenderstem broccoli pizza is quality. Take-away Pizza will never be the same again after this.

    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.

    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

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

    The purple flowering broccoli are actually more green than purple, but cover them in squirts of fresh lemon and OMG. Also, the rabbit pizza is amazzzzingg.

    Undeniably good pizza but nothing jaw-dropping, expensive drinks. Worth the wait when crowded? Not really. Try Crate Brewery / Pembury Tavern / Franco Manca instead.

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

    Amazing food, service could be better but don't expect much from people who have to serve so many tables at the same time. Try the mac n cheese!

    Almost as bad as shoreditch house....yeast based doughs (gross), vacuum packed cheeses and cured meats (aaaagh..), single serve caraffes (WTF).... Basics, basics, basics..........?????

    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.

    Imaginatively topped - think veal meatballs with prosciutto and cream or spicy sausage, mozzarella and tenderstem broccoli. We loved the Soppressata. Read more

    Aubergine, mozzarella, basil and pesto pizza was really good- I liked it better than the veal meatball pizza, which was too salty.

    Great pizza (you'll never even look at pizza express again) and great atmosphere. The wine is pretty terrible but the salami pizza is heavenly.

    Best olives ever!!! And I don't eat olives! Don't bother with the lasagne but the pizza is goooood!

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

    Delicious pizzas, great vegetarian options, decor and atmosphere dangerously close to being on the wrong side of 'on trend'.

    The waiting staff don't get the tips from the bill, so make sure you ask to get the service charge taken off the bill and give your waiter cash instead...

    Worth the journey to The East, cauliflower carbonara, carafe's of prosecco, roasted marrow bones and delicious, wood-fired pizzas
  • Charlotte R.
    Great pizza dough. Large restaurant with a great ambience. Good for groups and has a club downstairs at weekends.
