On a Sunny September evening this place reminds me, not so much of being in Italy, so much as at a authentic Italian in one of the more hip area's of New York Williamsburgh etc or even Berlin. The premises is in quite built up area on the main route out of the City, amidst a tight mix of 7/11's... More

None however was better than that which I ate last night in Pizza 500. We had a mixture of starters Cabrese made with... More

I decided once in Brighton to go and try this pizzeria a friend suggested me in many occasions, even though skeptical reading reviews mentioning chicken or garlic on pizza which are not regular Italian ingredients for pizza... Very very busy and difficult to get a table, Pizza 500 is far from the centre and the sea and when you find... More

A very busy little restaurant/take away. Really nice food and pizzas are great. Although my pizza was missing a few items. And the egg I think was just fried. Great value. Will definitely come back.

Has been a firm favourite of ours, but the service has deteriorated in recent times ... one poor waiter serving an entire restaurant. Took us over half an hour to get served. Having to pay extra for Chilli Oil is odd as it is free as standard just about everywhere else. Needs to up its game to get us back... More

We stared eating there a year ago, and the food was amazing for the price. The restaurant is a hidden treasure and really sweet service. But it seems you have got busy and have forgotten why people love going there, 'Pizza'! Your pizza has taken a dive for the worst. Less garlic, specs of chicken or meats on the pizza... More

Do not be fooled by the scary entrance ! Best pizza in town hands down. I'm from the south of france very close to Italy and it was a trip down memory lane when I set foot in the place - proper pizzeria smell! Great pizza for AMAZING value. Cannot recommend this place more. Delivery service though was a bit... More

If you want to feel yourself in Italy this is the place. Typical italian waiters, chatting and friendly, food it just fine, price excellent according to the food. Location is like typical "trattoria". If you go with your kids is a good place, they have big table at the garden.

This is just before the viaduct on the way out of town towards Preston Park. We live round the corner and love it. Frantic and friendly Italian staff a great range of appetisers and the pizzas are delicious. It's a refitted garage with a bit of space out back which adds to its charm. Not silver service dining and infinitely... More
