Square Meal Review of Pizza East ?

Always jam-packed, the brilliant Shoreditch branch of the Pizza East mini chain continues to deliver the goods. Funky, ‘attentive’ staff whizz round the outsized, wood-heavy dining room, delivering fine pizzas with full-flavoured toppings such as San Daniele ham with mozzarella, porcini and pecorino or guanciale (pork cheek) with burrata and cipollini onions, while pizza-phobes can seek solace in big boards of charcuterie, osso bucco or sea bass with borlotti beans and peppers. Starters are a step up from your typical pizza joint, too, whether it’s a plate of fritto misto or a bowl of chicken livers on polenta with a spicy calabrese sauce. The Italian-leaning wine list does the job, with plenty of choice under £30. Afterwards, head downstairs to the aptly named Concrete bar for thumping beats – and even a spot of ‘musical bingo’.

    HungryinLondon :: PIZZA EAST (Shoreditch)

    The reason why I must be the last person with any kind of interest in food, who has never been to Pizza East before is that I usually don’t like pizza.  Out of the blue however I was overwhelmed by a sudden pizza craving and Pizza East seemed like an obvious choice.

  1. This was my first visit to Pizza East and it was long overdue. Prior to this I’d have been hard pushed to name a really good, specialist pizza restaurant in London, but no longer!

    Pizza EastSure, there are some fantastic Italian places where you can get pizza, but they don’t generally make it the star of the show. That’s why I think that Pizza East has been so successful. There are now three branches, Portobello, Kentish Town and Shoreditch and all of them have built up quite a following. We arrived at 7pm on a Tuesday night, and you could clearly see what a popular place it is. We were very glad we’d booked...

  1. Pizza East has been kicking around for a while, so I am not really sure why it’s only now I’ve paid it a visit. Whatever the reason, I’m glad I got myself down there eventually as I really enjoyed my food there.

    Pizza East is mostly a pizza place that does a few other dishes. They are focused around rustic simplicity and sourcing good ingredients… but who isn’t these days? I know that’s my life’s manifesto. So far I am very simple and fairly rustic…

    Corporate doublespeak aside, Pizza East is a decent, reasonably priced restaurant chain with branches in Shoreditch, Kentish Town and Portobello. I visited...

    They also have a casual drinking space perfect for pre-dinner drinks or catching up with friends over a nice cold pint...

    Luxury Columnist :: Best Pizza in London? - Luxury Columnist

    Where do you get the best pizza in London? It’s always going to be subjective, but I was particularly impressed with my recent visit to Pizza East. It’s located in a former tea warehouse in buzzing Shoreditch, very close to Brick Lane. There’s a deli inside where you can buy charcuterie and cheeses, and there’s also an informal cafe area where you can enjoy a coffee or biscotti.

    The pizzas are made in a wood-oven and there’s quite an unusual selection to choose from. I opted for the butternut squash, pancetta and fontina pizza as I wanted something that felt Autumnal...

  1. I love pizza. Even more than burgers. Controversial I know. So when we were discussing places to eat, I immediately came up with Pizza East and luckily my friends all gave their approval. As we were coming from all over, we opted for the buzzing Shoreditch branch. Situated near Brick Lane, this old industrial tea warehouse building is right on the corner opposite Boxpark. I'd recommend booking just to ensure you don't end up disappointed.
