I noticed how loud it was as soon as we entered the restaurant. There were a few parties of children so that probably contributed to it. The temp in the restaurant was rather unwelcoming, very different to that of the corridor to go up to the toilets and in the toilets. We used a vouchercloud offer. There was a misunderstanding...

Went with two young children and 2 adults. We had been told of a 40 minute wait at Zizzi next door. They were very upfront, telling us they could serve us but mains would be subject to a 20-25 main wait. Food was fine. We didn't get our olives which we asked for but this isn't just this Pizza Express... More

We went along on a Sunday lunchtime and the place was heaving. All the same we were shown to a table quite quickly (not quite clean - a few crumbs from someone's old pizza) and were served quite quickly too. Pleasant friendly waiter. Because the restaurant was so busy we were warned that the food wait was about thirty minutes... More

We booked on line for a table of 4 pre film. We were directed to a table in the corner where we explained straight away we were on a tight time schedule due to having cinema tickets. The waiter acknowledged this. We waited for our drinks and then ordered our food. We had to ask twice for jug of water... More

Myself and my husband came here to use the gift card we'd been sent from pizza express customer servicw team. I'd had a bad experience at the port Solent branch of pizza express and was compensated with a generous gift card to make up for the bad experience id had. This time, we thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience & the... More

If you are lucky enough to visit on a lovely sunny day this Pizza Express takes some beating. The views across the water with numerous boats/ships of all shapes and sizes passing by is a joy. The reason we choose Pizza Express for lunch when we are out for the day is because it is consistent and we have found... More

It was a lovely sunny day, so I thought it would be nice to sit outside and enjoy the weather. There were lots of staff working, so not sure why there were tables covered with dirty plates. The services was sloppy so we decided to order straightaway, as we knew it would take a while otherwise. Our two drinks came... More
