We visited Pizza Express last night and were very disappointed. We started with bruschetta, the original one was fine but I ordered the mushroom one and it was actually quite disgusting. The plate consisted of a burnt piece of bread with a pile of raw mushrooms and raw onions covered in a white sauce which tasted of nothing and was... More

Have not been to a pizza chain for a while and will not be returning. For the price small pizzas. Four seasons more like few seasons. Not much topping at all. Probably half a mushroom sliced, few pieces of pepperoni, thin tomato sauce and little cheese. Service however quick and attentive.

We wanted a quick and easy meal approx., 8pm in the evening after seeing a film at the nearby cinema. Luckily for us, as it was a Saturday night and we hadn't booked, the Pizza Express was nearly empty. So got a table quickly and was given the menu plus the allergy file as I am a Coeliac and require... More

Great food, great service!, but why oh why is it so expensive for a family of 4 to have a good meal, when other restaurants are doing kids eat free deals or other great offers!,

Went here with a good mate of mine. Had a nice meal. Even nicer considering most of it was paid with clubcard vouchers. The service was good and the location is nice too. No qualms to report about the experience here - would come back again.

Fantastic service and the food was wonderful! There were 8 of us in our party yesterday evening, one of which was Coeliac (my daughter). The staff could not have been more helpful and were great in supplying me with the allergen sheets to demonstrate what she could have, and also going out of their way to make her visit good....

A family get-together, as part of a birthday celebration, meant pizza - it's the one food item which satisfies the majority. For 80% of us the meal was filling, tasty, came fairly quickly and served with a smile. However beware the salmon salad - there is a lot of green (and I mean a LOT) and very little salmon (one...

I went with my sisters for lunch on Saturday and I have to say I won't be returning. Waited over an hour for our food. We complained to the waitress who said they had a large table in and that is why it was taking so long. It seemed that all of the staff were focusing on the one group... More

As a birthday treat, we let our grand-daughter choose where/what to eat. Pizza of any sort was not a surprise! The restaurant was not very busy and appeared to have one waitress and a chef on duty. I prefer to have some time to study the menu and this was the case. Not being a big eater, I chose to... More

Was looking forward to taking my kids to Pizza Express, but I was sadden by the quality of food. The toppings on the pizza were minimum, the pasta stodgy, drinks and food over priced. I left disappointed, due to the inauthenticity of food. Service however, good, but it remains too commercial and sterile. Sorry folks.
