We ordered on a saturday so to be fair we should have expected a wait, but an hour and a half? We were very hungry! However the pizzas were delicious. Thin base made them the perfect manaegable amount. Also for me I don't eat cheese so the Marinara Pizza (tomato sauce, oregano, garlic and olive oil) which I added mushrooms... More

We ordered 5 pizzas as a delivery and have to say they were excellent and certainly some of the better pizzas we've eaten in Brighton. Our only qualms were that none of the Pizzas were sliced , and also the olives they used contained stones which was annoying to eat from a Pizza. Other then that they were top draw!

Following a passing suggestion from a colleague, my girlfriend and I were running too late for the cinema, and as Pizza 500 is 2 minutes from our flat, we decided to try it out. I cannot say how much of a lovely, relaxed and enjoyable evening we had. I will say first that if you read any bad reviews of... More

We really like this restaurant: authentic Italian cooking and great service. A few fundamentals are missing however, especially in the winter. The restaurant needs to be heated more adequately; the ambiance could be much improved by better lighting, tea lights on the tables would work wonders; I do not go to a restaurant to listen to advertisements for cars and...

So authentic, large and tasty. Beats the big chains hand downs, always very friendly on the phone and dropping off deliveries and its very affordable. Our favourite take away place in brighton.

Overall we really enjoyed our visit to Pizza 500. Starters where very simple Arancino was delicious, buffalo mozzarella very good but would have benifited a lot from some more sea salt, black pepper, olive oil and a ripe tomato. Loved the rusticisty of the pizzas very classic, very well cooked and with the freshly stone baked smoky flavour really giving... More

My husband brought me here for dinner prior to a cinema date and I loved it. Very simple & unpretentious Italian food - pizza, pasta, salad and gelato with some less commonplace menu items thrown in. The octopus fish cake was delicious and the pizza was beautifully crispy and perfect. All wine and beer is Italian as well as the... More

Secondly we are Italian and we... More
