Really delicious thin authentic Italian pizza. Although, we were not allowed to add anchoives to our palma ham pizza as apparently it is now allowed!

So we had a nice meal in this busy little restaurant which serves authentic Italian food are a reasonable price. The service is a bit slow as they seemed to be more interested in chatting with their friends but it's laid back and friendly. What upset me was the fact the bill came to £39 with no service charge.

This place is an absolute delight, harkening back to the days before pizza became corporate- charming, somewhat chaotic and extremely authentic Italian pizzas. Slightly overcrowded, smelling of delicious food, mildly incongruous music- this really feels like being in Italy… BTW their home made sausage is to die for!

Great ambience, good food and service with reasonable prices. Go early as it gets full quickly - especially at weekends

The staff of this place kindly let my girlfriend and I in prior to opening times to get a quick gelato to takeaway! The gelato was great, has pistachio and chocolate, both amazing. Also, managed to get a quick view inside; they have outside seating and a traditional looking pizza oven, will definitely return to see what food they offer.... More

Best pizza I've ever had. It's so cheap and always great. All other pizza places pale in comparison. Ice cream is great too! Go there all the time, if only every town had a pizza 500!

We eat at Pizza 500 when we want a real pizza, Pizza 500 is 100% Italian! Last Saturday we were catching up with several friends from out of town and it was a perfectly delicious casual fit. Our table wasn't quite ready so we went to a close by pub and the host called when they were ready for us,... More

Pizza 500 is a pretty unprepossessing spot, but it is an absolute gem, and possibly the best pizza in Brighton. The restaurant is housed in a garage, and it gets a little chilly in the winter, but nothing can take away from the excellent pizza this place serves. The base is light, crispy and just charred; with lots of familiar... More

Pizza 500 gets great reviews for eating in, and my girlfriend has even eaten there and said it was good.. But.. Their take away service is appalling, backed up by terrible customer service. We collected take away from there after being told delivery would be 1hour 45mins, got the pizzas home and they were dripping with fat and water. The... More

We were recommended Pizza 500 by a friend and popped in on a Wednesday night. I think we were lucky to get a seat as the place was mobbed and for good reason! There are no frills in this small ex garage which really adds to the charm of the place and it lets the food speak for itself. We... More
