“Best pizza in London”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2013

Went there twice on my last trip to London and when it was recommended on 2 separate occasions I didn't refuse both suggestions. For good reason - it simple is the most interesting and scrumptious pizzas in London! Try the crispy roast pork belly pizza - their main attraction. This is a chain that is efficient, great service and good food with rustic decor and casual seating.

“Great pizza, great rooms, lovely staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2013

Been to Pizza East a couple of times recently. Once for an excellent Sunday lunch on a cold, bright Sunday. We sat upstairs - a really lovely, unusual dual-aspect triangular room. The service is charming from the moment you walk in. Lots of families, lots of smiles and laughter. The food was excellent. Interesting, well-made pizzas, and pretty good pork belly. Early evening family dinner on the next occasion - massive comforting lasagne, and rather so-so mac'n'cheese. Priced fairly. It beats Pizza Express into a cocked hat

“Yummy pizza and friendly staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2013

Went for lunch with my mother after a mooch around portobello market and golbourne road. Unusual menu but pizza was delicious. Wine a little pricey. Waiters friendly and charming. Buzzy informal place. Would def go again.

“Cool and yummy!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2013

Coooool! A place for any occasion, business, romantic or simple friends gathering serving great pizza. We tried the one with the Portobello mushrooms.....simply delicious. Fresh salads, italian style appetizers, assorted cheese and salami as well as some hot plates. The atmosphere was fresh, the interior alternative, somehow industrial. The service and the staff more likely as friends that wanted to share their home-like feeling! We ended with a true dark chocolate sweet with a thin crusty salt layer. It may sound strange but it's a must for choco lovers!

“Great place, great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2013 via mobile

I went on my own for breakfast on a Sunday morning. I had a great spot overlooking the place that is stacked with trendy neighbourhood people, some with kids. The food is great: fresh fruit with great creamy joghurt, jummy eggs and sourdough toast with butter and homemade jam.
From 11 am the brunch starts and the kitchen is prepairing large meats, fishes, pizza's and other fantastic smelling dishes. I was a bit sorry I overate at breakfast because I would have liked to try some brunch dishes as well... Next time!
The waiters are very nice and friendly.
