Very busy but food and service were good

Booked for lunch on a Saturday - v v busy but breezed straight in (why don't people book?). Served quickly and efficiently. Good tasty food and able to bespoke pizzas with whatever you wanted. Puds were yummy and free bottle of Prosecco for birthday made it all the better!!

We've visited here a few times, its always been fairly busy but always been dealt with quickly and seen to a seat. Being able to sit and watch the ferries and boats come and go is very relaxing. I often stick to the same thing on the menu and they always come out to the same standard, when i do... More

Had a great table by the window. Even though the restaurant was packed, we still received great service and our food arrived in good time. Pizzas are cooked perfectly.

I used to love Pizza Express and when we were near one, I'd try to have a meal there. We were in Portsmouth at Gunwharf Quays recently and went to Pizza Express for lunch. The waitress was really nice - no problems with the service. The pizzas though are a different story. It seems like the prices have gone up... More

Went here for a friends birthday a few months ago. Service was good as there were so many of us umm'ing and arr'ing haha! Only 20 minute wait for all 13 of our food orders to come out which I thought was pretty brilliant. Only reason im giving 4/5 was my pizza wasn't the normal standard I expect from a... More

Visited there yesterday. Service was good, but the pizzas themselves were virtually devoid of topping. I ordered a pepperoni pizza, and it had 14 tiny circles of pepperoni. My wife had a pizza which was supposed to have olives on it - there were 4 of them! I guess they are trying to save money by skimping on the toppings.... More

Although the location for this restaurant is great, the quantity and quality of the meals were significantly below other pizza express restaurants we've visited (3 others in the last 12 months). Not somewhere we would visit again and has put us off going to other Pizza Express restaurants.

I have been here a number of times and the only problem I have ever had was the last time we visited where we were kept waiting for someone to come and take our drink order for 15 minutes or so. The food is always delicious, and I love that they do gluten free options! The only criticism food wise... More

If you want to pay a lot of money for a pizza that lacks in substance then this is the place to go. I ordered an American hot which had no heat in it whatsoever as the jalapeño peppers were pickled and not fresh, the cheese was spread so thinly that you could hardly see it and the pepperoni was...
