This is the most incredible pizza! It's really unusual as the bread is super thin and crusty - almost like a pappadam or crispy pita. But the ingredients are also incredible - really really fresh and amazing combinations of tastes. We went as a group of 8 people and emailed back and forth with Lee who was incredibly helpful. He...

Family run pizza place just around the corner from Shoreditch high street station. Personable service and cosy homely ambience, and the best pizza. I keep coming up with occasion and reasons to return ......

We have been following Lee and his partner since 2003, when they started Story Deli in the old Truman Brewery. Then we lost them and happily found them again in Bethnal Green Road. And now ... they moved again !! They are currently popping up on 8 Calvert Avenue in EC2: 10 minutes walk away from the previous location, around... More

Pizza is simply delicious, only 100% organic and really really tasty ingredients are used. Amazing atmosphere, great interior and really friendly service. The best combination for a special dining experience. No sign outside the building makes Story Deli a proper hidden jam in the heart of Shoreditch.

Spicy one is my favourite, forget the name... Price is acceptable, like the dinning environment, though the place is not easy to find, as there's no sign at the front. Recommended!

Wonderful setting, pizza and wine was delightful. This tranquil space is a respite from the mayhem of Shoreditch. A secret to be found.

It's £18 per pizza. If 4 of you go, it's essentially £100. So why go? Well, it's a funny place, with no sign outside and the owner keeps the door shut - you have to knock to come in. So only those 'in the know' would ever eat there. The room is beautifully decorated and it's a one-man operation, although... More

Very nice and calming environment. We choose the pizza Story Deli. Pizza was different with his thin and crispy crust, but organic and has given the impression to be a lot healthier. We had to search for the restaurant, but it's really easy if u know it. U just cross the street when u come from Brick Lane and on... More

We were taken here by a friend and was very pleasantly surprised not only by the decor but by the pizzas which are so far removed from the standard doughy, thick tomato & cheese offerings from the usual places. With the entrance being just a door with an 'Open' sign, you really would need to know where you were going... More

Staying in Shoreditch

Neighbourhood Profile
The western front of the edgy East End, Shoreditch is a perennially trendy haven for anything “street” – be it art, food, or fashion. With its handful of well connected transportation links dotting its perimeter, along with an ever increasing variety of shops, hotels, bars, and restaurants, it's easy to explore this trend-conscious and youth-oriented neighbourhood. There's a lingering post-industrial grit about Shoreditch, but because it shares a border with “The City” financial district, the influence from its upscale neighbour can result in fascinating outcomes.
