Disappointing

Long wait for service, we had to complain before our food was brought. People on the next table arrived some time after us and had food quickly. We had a toddler with us who we ended up feeding with snacks as she became very restless, we then had to take the food ordered for her home

Went to Pizza Express with family, including 18 month old niece. Tried to sit outside downstairs but were told they were expecting a large party. Went upstairs to outside terrace - too many tables and chairs (these were hard and uncomfortable anyway) stuffed in the area so we were very squashed. Harassed waitress - not over friendly. Food ordered and... More

Ultimately, it is a Pizza Express and the ingredients/menu is the same as any other I have visited. This does however boast a very fine view over the marina and on a good day, lunch on the terrace can whisk you somewhere different. Staff were attentive and friendly and food was decent.

If you're wanting somewhere safe you can aways rely on Pizza Express - or so I thought. I hadn't actually visited one of these for about 18 months, as I like to try other places rather than chains, but found myself here on a Saturday lunchtime on a lovely day. Walking in at ground level, there was nobody there so... More

While on a weekend away with partner, we had vouchers for pizza express. We searched to see if there was one in Portsmouth - there were two! We chose to go to this one, short drive outside of town centre but in a lovely location around marina. We hadn't booked but must have got there just in time as it... More

Myself and my husband ate here on a weekday lunchtime. We both ordered pizzas which were quick to arrive and tasted lovely. We also ordered a dolcetti each for dessert, shortly after we ordered the waitress came over to our table and apologised that there would be a 5 minute wait for the coffees as they had forgotten to turn...

Myself and four friends came here for a get together. It took 10 minutes for a member of staff to realize we were stood waiting to be seated and we'd even booked a table! Initially the woman serving us was friendly and I thought we were going to enjoy our dining experience. HOW WRONG WAS I! The waitress took our... More

We regularly visit Pizza Express at several different places nearby, Port Solent being the prime as its closest - the food is always good as its standard in a large pizza chain, cannot complain in that area, however the service can be awful!

Went here on 16.02.15 was very disappointed, the service was very slow, waited 15 minutes before we was even asked about a drink and it wasn't even busy? Had a pizza and the base was undercooked very doughy! Would not recommend and would not return.
