Lovely Gelato

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... read 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

We booked for a 7.30 sitting on Saturday April 11th, after being recommended by our son, who lives in Brighton, and who has experience of many restaurants in Brighton. He advised excellent value for money, freshly cooked Italian food, and great service. We were not disappointed. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal, did not feel at all rushed, and felt that... More

It hasn't changed a great deal from having been a garage which added to the charm, and helped demonstrate they are clearly more interested in their food than decor. Well worth the journey there, and the wait for a table, we will certainly be back. And I have to mention the Kylie-esq bottomed waitress, even the wife was impressed too.

Second time at this restaurant, and we got the same charming, efficient and friendly service both times. The food is simple italian cuisine and the restaurant is family-friendly. Its a good, busy and bustling atmosphere. I can't quite put my finger on it, except to say it felt like an authentic italian restaurant, run by italians and no doubt patronised... More

I ordered takeaway on Sunday evening. Initially had problems getting through so they must be busy! Was told the food would take a maximum of 45 minutes to arrive. It arrived in 17 which was excellent. When this place first opened I used to get takeaway from them on a regular basis. I ate in the restaurant too a couple... More
