    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

    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!

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

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

    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!

    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.

    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..

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

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

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

    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!

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

    The buratta is excellent here and Tuesday are half price. A win win situation.

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

    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.

    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

    Pizzas have improved over the last year and a half. Try the beef cheek and the marrow if its still on the menu!

    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.

    The garlic bread is delicious, as are the croquettes... And obviously the pizzas too. Go when you're hungry!

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

    The salted caramel chocolate tart is one of the best deserts I have ever had. No word of a lie.
