Have been here a few times and I am never disappointed. Small menu but has everything you need. Really like how its a garage conversion too. Lovely staff!

We went there with a small group on a Friday night as a pre-cinema dinner. Lovely service, real Italian pizza, great atmosphere, and reasonable prices. Definitely need to go back as I want to try the homemade gelati.

no pretensions - with good food and service. Rating would have been excellent except that the filling is a little "wet" in the middle so this made the pizza too soggy and difficult to hold when trying to eat.

We visit Pizza500 regularly for takeaway and it's usually good. This time we went in early on a Sunday evening for three take away pizzas and some arancini. Service was quick but arancini were poor (rice wasn't cooked and still crunchy), pizzas were significantly smaller than usual, and one of the pizzas was completely different to want we had ordered...

If you are serious about pizza, 500 is the place to go. Other reviewers have had difficulty getting in - it isn't huge - but we had no problem getting a table at about 7 on a weekday evening. The premises are I believe an ex-garage. We sat outside on rough hewn tables and benches under the railway viaduct which... More

Went after friends' suggestion. Took the ham and mushrooms pizza. Really great taste and reasonable price. Well mannered,polite and efficient service so i don't know how the impolite or rude staff accusation stands. Ended dinner with scoop of choco-hazelnut

We went to order a takeaway pizza. A request was made to omit olives and add chillies. I was told that this wasn't possible as there was a new chef on duty. When I asked to just take olives off and forget about the chillie request I was told that I could pick them off myself. I then asked to... More

Friends had been recommending Pizza 500 for a while. Got the folks visiting at the moment - on their way to Brighton, a guy on the train mentioned how great the pizzas are. We normally head into the North Laine for something to eat & rarely head up Preston Park way - but couldn't resist trying something new. Fantastic atmosphere,... More
