Recommend.11/05/2013 00:00:00Great food, stuffy staffThe food at Pizza East is amazing. If you go on a Monday you get 50% off the entire bill if you can get hold of one of their keyring fobs. Sadly the staff are stuffy and pretentious and tend to look down their noses at you - not all of them of course, but the ladies who run the reception desk are most certainly snobby.
Worth going, but only when 50% off.06/05/2013 00:00:00great place great food...nothing to add to that. the pizza was simply delicious, the service really good and we had a great time. would go there again anytime.20/04/2013 00:00:00Yum!Food as always, amazingly tasty....love pizza east.18/04/2013 00:00:00Wonderful on all levelsI cannot fault the service we had on Friday night in Shoreditch,I had in error booked for 8 not 9 and they were charming about it and found a table without any issue. Our Italian waiter was WONDERFUL, the right mix of engaging, knoweldgeable and fabulous. The food is fantastic and you don't have to have pizza, the boards of meat/cheese are such brilliant value at 3 items for £12 and its a huge portion, that coupled with the ridiculously good garlic bread was perfect. It is excellent value, staff fabulous and atmorsphere buzzing. I cannot recommend it highly enough. Am also now the owner of the keyring giving you 50% off the ttoal bill on different days at the different branches! hurrah! make sure you ask for one when you're there!12/04/2013 00:00:00love itGreat food , amazing service and the hottest Irish waiter08/04/2013 00:00:00A quiet Sunday......well spent.

Highly recommended restaurant, we will definitely be visiting again.07/04/2013 00:00:00Always a joy!Pizza East is one of our favourite places to eat in London. The relaxed atmosphere is enhanced by great, friendly staff, and a menu to die for!
Veal meatball pizza is an absolute must, and the cocktails are fabulous too.
It's a cool, East London vibe with great interior, staff and especially food.07/04/2013 00:00:00trednyuber-trendy location. Love to take visitors to London there, usually on Friday as an introduction to lively shoreditch. Ambiance is always great and food is decent04/04/2013 00:00:00Great Pizza in LondonI moved to London from California and have yet to find really great pizza until now. I will be back to Pizza East very soon.30/03/2013 00:00:00Great pizzaVeal and prosciutto pizza is brilliant!! Works brilliantly and the dough is excellent. A cool place to grab a bite and then hit the bars around Shoreditch.29/03/2013 00:00:00Great as usualAlways a pleasure eating at PE. Close to eveything you could ever need. Why would you ever need to go West!25/03/2013 00:00:00Perfect friday night dinnerI was a bit worried as I had read bad reviews after I booked my table and was even thinking of booking somewhere else but considering I had left it to the last minute I decided to stick with my plans and try it for myself. dispite the bad reviews I had read earlier I really enjoyed my time at Pizza East. waiter was very helpful, quick and polite. Food was excellent. I'll definately be back.22/03/2013 00:00:00Good food, great buzz.Pizza East was rammed on a Thursday night but our waiter remained friendly and unflustered and the food came out quickly. Everything we ordered, from the veal pizza to the meatballs and burrata, was delicious. The total bill was just over £50 for two, albeit without much alcohol, and we thought it was great value. It's buzzy and great for groups, but we were sat on a bank of tables for two, surrounded by young 20-something couples. Looking forward to going back.21/03/2013 00:00:00Fabulous PizzaOne of the best pizza's I have had in London and some reasonably priced wine. Very loud, but buzzy atmosphere. Great for dinner with friend's and big groups. Will be returning20/03/2013 00:00:00Good funGreat food that is well priced, in the heart of trendy Shoreditch, with an interior setting and fun atmosphere to match.16/03/2013 00:00:00Dinner at Pizza EastI went to Pizza East in Shoreditch on a weeknight and it had a great atmosphere. The pizza was absolutely delicious and I would recommend it highly. The sides (burrata and vegetables) were amazing especially and it has a fun, buzzy atmosphere and looks like one of those places that is always busy.06/03/2013 00:00:00Great experienceThoroughly enjoyed my pizza with a friend at Pizza East. It's my second visit because I enjoyed the first one. Great atmosphere. Service was fast, friendly and helpful. The restaurant was jammed on a Monday night which I wasn't surprised about based on my experience. Would defo go again :-)04/03/2013 00:00:00Pizza East is a fun, energeticPizza East is a fun, energetic and lively place with good vibes. The food is just amazing, bringing adventure and taste to simple dishes. The staff are friendly and welcoming. The relaxed atmosphere makes it a perfect place to go with friends and family for any occasion. Definitely recommended!02/03/2013 00:00:00Good FoodThe food is amazing; it’s a very buzzy and fun venue.
For larger bookings you are only given 2 hours max - we asked for the dessert menu and were given the bill as we were reaching our time limit.02/03/2013 00:00:00Second disappointment with WinesAfter my second time giving a chance to Italian Wines. It turns out that Italian Wines are terrible even though you will pay in the range of £25 to £29 . it will all taste the same, If you are after a sour ,no flavor wine go for it. but it is not for me , I have had better £10 French wine from tesco. A bit disappointing for such a nice restaurant to have very bland ,sour tasting wines. Other than that one small criticism is the way wine is being served, you will get your wine in a small water glass , be aware of it . It must be the Italian country-side stye I guess . It might sound fussy though , I will definitely prefer to drink a wine in a wine glass .02/03/2013 00:00:00Great pizza in a bustling atmospherIf you're looking for a quiet little restaurant, then this please isn't for you. However if you're looking for somewhere that's bus, loud, with tons of atmosphere then go here. Superb pizza and a great drinks selection.01/03/2013 00:00:00The ambiance was fantastic!
TheThe ambiance was fantastic!
The appetizer (garlic bread) was also excellent. Anyone should try it if you like Garlic
I was a bit disappointed by the pizza dough which is too "americanized" in the style thick not that well crunchy in comparison with real italian pizzas.
I definitely recommend the self made lemonade wihich is excellent26/02/2013 00:00:00Trendy and deliciousLove this restaurant! All the food is absolutely fantastic and very well priced! Servers are energetic, friendly and attentive26/02/2013 00:00:00Pizza PizzaI love Pizza East and the staff are great, helpful, friendly. The pizza is delicious, the drinks are great. Really interesting space in the heart of Shoreditch. Can't fault it really!21/02/2013 00:00:00Great service even thoughGreat service even though it was past eleven. Pizza are great and not too greasy. Love the 80's music21/02/2013 00:00:00great atmosphere at Pizza EastEarly evening diner at Pizza East - we were lucky to arrive a little early - place is very popular and they were queuing by 7.30pm when we left. Pizzas were good but personally I thought not as good as Pizza East in Kentish Town. Service was friendly and helpful and place is suitable for large groups as well as smaller tables.18/02/2013 00:00:00great dinneri have made a reservation and showed up with my lady right on time. they were extremely friendly and helpful and walked us to our really nice table, right against the wall, close to the big windows overlooking the street. it was bustling, many people around, good music, dim lighting and the always welcoming smell of freshly baked pizza. it was our first time there, but i have of course heard about it, so expectations were rather high.
we ordered two veggie pizzas and some wine. the food was great, well seasoned and crispy. the wine was perfect and after the big meal we went for dessert. pannacotta and chocolate tart. so good! overall we had a great experience. and even though it was crowded, it felt intimate and cozy. great choice.16/02/2013 00:00:00As always PE delivered!I always just walk away from this place happy.....great food, great service, great value. Consistently delivers10/02/2013 00:00:00Brilliant atmosphereSaturday night at 9 pm the place was full and buzzy, Super friendly, prompt service. Great for parties of friends but also for couples with the low lighting and feel good atmosphere. Delicious pizza.09/02/2013 00:00:00Great birthday mealRecently visited with a table of 10 for my birthday and had a great experience. Food was great, atmosphere was great, staff were lovely and helpful (apart from a slightly rude manager who refused to add an extra guest onto our table (the staff serving us let us do it anyway). Would definitely recommend to everyone. Not the quietest most romantic venue on a Saturday night when we went but great vibrant atmosphere and convenient location for all the surrounding bars as well.09/02/2013 00:00:00Great night, good foodPizza East is a great restaurant which I'd definitely return to again. Plenty of good food options and the wine is pretty reasonable too. Only reason for slightly downgrading from 5 stars was the surly departure of the waiter when collecting our bill. We left the default 12.5% which was tagged onto the bill and therefore waited for our change. If the tip is going to be automatically included then expect this!08/02/2013 00:00:00Amazing dining experience,Amazing dining experience, fantastic food, the appetizers especially, with great honest service.27/01/2013 16:00:00good pizza!The pizza is amazing and at a very good price. The only thing we could complain about (if there must be something to complain about) is that the place is always full and busy and that means it is a bit difficult to have a conversation.
However, it is really recommendable for a group dinner. It's fun, it's good!23/01/2013 16:00:00Another brilliant dinner withAnother brilliant dinner with a friend - been there about 4 times now, and still love the freshness of the food, the friendliness of all the staff, and the overall very lively atmostphere, even on a Monday night! I will keep on making people discover this little gem, and keep on coming myself.20/01/2013 16:00:00SolidNot my first time there, the food is always great, so are the drinks, and the service is friendly, even if sometimes not the fastest.

Everything is half price including alcohol :) book early though as its always very busy!13/01/2013 16:00:00Good pizza, service hit and missWe went on a Thursday night and it was comfortably busy, good atmosphere. Just enough background noise to have a good chat and disguise a bit of people watching. The pizza was really good, my friend is still raving about the ham!
We got a bit forgotten after arriving early and having a drink at the bar. We had to go and ask again for our table - I'm sure they would have left us to keep drinking at the bar.09/01/2013 16:00:00PEVery good! Monday pricing is makes it super affordable!06/01/2013 16:00:00Always tastyAs per usual, good quality food at a good price if you're lucky enough to get a table!04/01/2013 16:00:00BuzzyThere were 7 of us and we had a round table which was great as we could have group converasations rather than just talking to the people right next to us
Waitress was helpful and friendly
Pizzas great and interesting salads. We shared a mix of the two between our table. Also shared the doughnuts and salted caramel tart both yummy. Doughnuts big helping for one and tart really rich so glad we shared.
Only down side was we only had 2hrs and got(nicely) booted off when our time was up03/01/2013 16:00:00Great food and atmoshphereThe pizzas here are great and service really attentive. Good value.30/12/2012 16:00:00GreatOne of several visits to Pizza East, always fantastic pizza, really nice atmosphere an good service.22/12/2012 16:00:00One of the best in town!It's hard to find a good pizza in London but Pizza East does the job! It's a busy, bustling restaurant, great service, great atmosphere. We will be back!20/12/2012 16:00:00A regular hauntI love Pizza East. The pizzas are excellent and innovative with lovely bases, thin ish and crispy. They don't hold back on the garlic on the garlic bread too which in my book, gets a big old tick. Service is always good and turn around swift. It's always busy and quite buzzy, so not the kinda place to go for a quiet date. The bill is never very cheap but good value for money, well I wouldn't go back so often if it weren't. Good choice of non pizza options too with a fairly extensive wine list. Overall fun and good quality food, as long as you don't mind a slightly hectic surroundings.18/12/2012 16:00:00
