    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.

    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!

    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

    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.

    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

    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!

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

    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..

    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.

    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.

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

    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.
