Authentic, Italian pizza restaurant with charming efficient service

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.

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

Following recommendation from Brighton Food blogger we visited Pizza 500 last Saturday evening where we enjoyed the most authentic pizzas we have ever eaten. Initially as the restaurant was full we had to sit really close to the door, but as soon as another table was free the friendly staff helped us move to another table. The pizzas were superb,...

Before I commence, I just want to state that this review is regarding a dine-in experience. Apparently, this was the best pizza this side of town. Apparently, it was excellent value for money. Apparently, it was impossible to book a table on a Saturday night...Apparently only 2 out of the 3 statements were correct. It was still fairly early in... More

i love this restaurant: I love their pizzas and I love these guys and I have been raving about them and recommending them to everyone. BUT I do have a problem with the fact that if I book on a busy night, I am told they need the table in an hour and half even though when I ask, the... More

Below average pizza - I've had better pizza from supermarkets. The delivery took over an hour and a half to arrive on a Sunday night, ok it was the burning of the clocks night so busy in town but that still isn't good enough. La Cucina is much better pizza, with much better delivery, but they were closed for Christmas!... More

I have to agree with the comments of those who have had poor pizza delivery from this place. Really disappointing experience having heard good things.

Hi, are you a friend of Cassis...or what other bad review on delivery have you seen?, as for the reply to Cassis, please mind your business and stay away from us if you don't like closer to authentic Italian food...or give constructive feedback instead of throwing such comment. Regards Leo More

I wasn't going to write anything but since your inability to accept responsibility for your poor quality service I feel compelled to now state that a) the comments from Dave B (real name and certainly not a competitor) were true and b) I have now posted about my disgust of your food, service and disparaging and inappropriately snobby 'common' statement...

We had take away pizzas from here last night, had been meaning to try it out for ages as I'd heard good things. Firstly we called at 19:20 and was told that if we wanted it delivered it would be 21:00 so opted to pick up, as this would only take 20 minutes. Arrived and there were 5 or 6... More

Dear Dave, if this really is your real name or profile...seems to me you have created it just to lower our score on tripadvisor as a competitor would do....... Anyway, if we told you that was the time of delivery, it is because we did have other deliveries scheduled up to that time. If the shop was almost empty at... More

Reasonable prices. Good selection. Good service. Went in on my own but will bring friends and family back. Good wine menu and homemade ice cream. Only issue is had to go outside to toilet- behind restaurant. Also should be open at lunch times.
