I've eaten a lot of pizza in my time and I've been through most of the pizza restaurants in Brighton and hove. In my opinion, Pizza 500 is by far the best. The combination of a tasty thin base with not too heavy a crust with fantastically fresh authentic Italian ingredients is just perfect. The only negative is that it... More

Haven't eaten in, but always a good atmosphere when picking up a takeaway. Excellent pizza. Will be interesting to see how Pizza 500 and Fatto a Mano fare against each other ....

Very disappointing - the food was below average (pizzas with soggy bottoms) and the service not that great either. We were told at the end of the meal that we had to pay in cash, which none of us had, cue a trip to the local cash machine. When asked why we hadn't been alerted to this at the beginning... More

This place - it does other dishes too - does great pizzas. The drinks menu is a bit short and desserts (apart from the ice cream which was great too) are not as exciting. So stick to pizza.

I love this place! The pizzas are tasty, the dough is well seasoned. I recommend the margherita and the prosciutto e funghi - both delicious (although I'll admit a preference for the margherita - the tomato base really shines on this one). The service is friendly service, and the guys are willing to let me practise my abhorrent Italian -... More

I've been there twice already, first with a big group and then with two Italian friends, because I wanted their expert opinion! I loved it both times and let's just say that my friends ended the night thanking me for showing them a really authentic Italian restaurant in Brighton! The pizza is just delicious, right there on the top next... More

I ordered take away to collect. The look was amazing and I ordered the barrocciaia with a four cheese pizza to go with the order. I don't think this place is a bad place for at all, its just my pizza was very soggy where the base probably was too thin for the heavy amount of tomato sauce. I will... More
