    Fun place to meet friends. Pizza has a delicious crust. Foccacia was excellent. Croquettes were very good, as was the whole oven roasted cauliflower.

    Tucked away in the amazing Soho House, Pizza East has a very homey feel to it. Overall, the food was pretty good. The pizza options were all unique and the two that we ordered (eggplant and spicy sausage) were very flavorful. Also, the wine menu has a good spread with reasonably priced bottles on it. The highlight was the garlic bread though!

    We selected Pizza East for our daughters 22nd birthday. The service is very good and attentive. Pizzas are delicious and crust is cooked to perfection (nice crispy crust throughout). Salads were also very good but a bit too much salt! When we ordered dessert for our daughter it came out on beautiful plate with happy birthday written in chocolate and a candle. Nice touch! My one negative comment is they could have given us the $8 dessert for free. One because it was her birthday and two our check was over $100 so you'd think they could pick up one dessert.

    We had been to Parlor Pizza across the street last month and found the pizza good, but nothing special, and noise level unbearable. So we decided to try Pizza East. We had the veal meatball pizza. Their crust is excellent, one of the best I've ever had. The topping was unusual and very good, the appetizer and salad we ordered were also very good. We will definitely be back to try more of their pizzas.

    Food was extremely tasty. Service was great. Tables a little too close. Distracted by chatty women next to us.

    Food was great, service was absolutley terrible. Worst Ive had in years. A drink was dumped all over the table by our server, he wandered off and came back ten minutes later to clean it up, which he didnt do properly. My guests entree was completley forgotton. Food was awesome but service was awful which was embarrassing as I recommended it to my friends.

    This wood burning pizza restaurant is part of the SOHO complex that is open to the public (non-members) and it is amazing. The pizza is authentic Italian and is actually better than the pizza we enjoyed in Italy (where we lived for 10 years). It has a unique crust that is the formula of the two Italians that supervise the food production. The one I spoke to was very friendly and explained that he came from Sardinia. Service is impecable and they have other, non pizza food, like roasted brussel sprouts and four-cheese macaroni & cheese that is over baked. This is one of the places in Chicago where you can run into a famous celebrity because of the protected environment and they do not advertise. We found them on the Hungry Hound! Go Here!

    Had a wonderful experience! The food was great, and the portions were large enough to share. The meat and cheese board was wonderful, and the pizza excellent all we hoped for. Will come back for sure to try more of the entree dishes..perhaps lasagna!

    This weekend we went to Bar Takito and Pizza East. Both have been opened for just two weeks, both didn't have complete menus, both had delicious food, but there was an important difference between the two - SERVICE. I don't know where Pizza East found their wait staff, they seemed like they'd never worked in a restaurant before, weren't familiar with items on the menu, didn't advise us on what was/wasn't available before ordering. Hey - it's fine to be in a soft opening stage, but set some expectations: tell us the menu is missing half of the juices, that the food will take forever to arrive, that you won't bring our check for half an hour.

    Went to dinner here on a Thursday night - was surprised by the quiet atmosphere and empty restaurant. Last call was at 9:30 and the food was fine but I wasn't blown away.

    Still new, a little awkward, too many servers on the floor coming up to our table. Food is good; too dark inside for lunch.

    The Pizza was just ok, nothing special. It was extremely loud, even the slights conversation wasn't possible, thats how load it was! The service wasn't good either, they forgot to bring out the salad so it came with the pizza, on a small table with no room to eat

    I am not a member, but they make me feel like one. I've eaten here twice. Once with my teenage daughter and her friends. Another time with clients. On both occasions the staff went out of their way to welcome us. Made us feel like long lost friends. Nicely done soho house. You're a great addition to the neighborhood.
