Welcome to Pizza East Portobello
Pizza East Portobello is spread over two floors of a restored Georgian pub, right in the middle of the bustling Portobello market area and includes a deli trading in ingredients such as polenta, fave beans and risotto rice, as well as Italian cured meats and cheeses.
Just like our big brother in Shoreditch, while we take our pizza seriously the setting is very relaxed. We’ve stripped the building’s interior back and created a light and airy space with wooden floors and huge windows, then filled it with beautiful vintage cafe furniture. The in-house wood-fired ovens and open ground floor kitchen mean there are great views to be had inside, especially from the antique stools at the counter, or you can sit outside and watch the world go by.
Our upstairs dining room is an even more laid-back sitting room, as is our terrace, a little green haven away from the hustle of town, where you can have drinks or dinner.
We use home-made tomato sauce and a ciabatta-style, slow-proved dough, which is hand-made in the restaurant every day for all pizzas. We’ve brought over a few of our favourite toppings from Shoreditch but also created some new ones – look out for our signature Portobello mushrooms, tomato, fontina and oregano pizza or try the spicy sausage, mozzarella, broccoli pizza.
The menu also contains some exciting new alternatives to pizza, in our wood-oven selection – think slow-roasted whole baked salmon, Lamb shoulder or whole Pork belly, which take on the wonderful smoky flavours of the oven. (And if you can’t choose between the two menus? Go for our crispy pork belly, tomato and mushroom pizza).
If you’re after a snack or starter choose from our antipasti menu: try bone marrow bruschetta or Pea, mint, pecorino croquettes. If you’d like to take a taste of Pizza East Portobello home with you, visit our deli counter where you’ll find a great selection of cured meats and cheese, all sourced from our hand-picked Italian suppliers.
For pudding or even a mid-afternoon treat, our dessert menu has something for everyone – from salted chocolate caramel tart made with rich Amadei chocolate, to moorish Vanilla cheesecake, lemon. Do check out our brand new authentic gelato stand, with four different flavours on offer every day.
Breakfast is available every day from 8am – if you’d like some of our excellent coffee and hand-made pastries head to the deli counter. If you’re in need of something a little more substantial then make yourself at home in the restaurant.
Our fried egg, pancetta, avocado ciabatta is an update of an old early morning favourite, as are our home-made porridge with berry compote and green eggs and ham.
Book a sit down meal for 13-20 friends at one large table on the 1st floor. Choosing a £30 three course option will take you right from an anitipasti start to a winning dessert finish. For this and other reservations please contact our reception team on +44 (0)20 8969 4500
