This is our local Pizza Express and we've eaten here on many occasions, but it can be a bit hit and miss and unfortunately on this occasion it was more of the latter. The pizzas bases weren't very crispy, the runny egg was hard, they'd run out of rocket and sundried tomatoes were served chilled on... read more

Great service and food with views of the Marina. The salads are a perfect accompaniment to a sunny day.

Visited many times, I'm sure they recognise us in there by now! Food is always good, lots of options for vegetarians, and the service is always good.

There are always vouchers, codes available so make sure you look them up. Will always go here. Easy to park, lovely surroundings... More

No one to meet you downstairs, waited a while then went up. We'd reserved but weren't asked. We were given a choice of tables, menus then thrown on the table & waitress walked off without a word before we'd even sat down. In no time at all asked for our drinks order from a different server, wasn't ready. Waiting service... More

We have visited this pizza express many times and found it to be a great place to eat They have had issues with staff in the past, not enough of them so food service is slow. Now that has improved. We visited on Sunday afternoon about 3pm which I feel is always a good time to visit any restaurant once... More

We visited here on a Saturday afternoon, we booked a table and we were seated straight away. We ordered dough balls and pizza which were very good. The service left a lot to be desired. We were left without a waitress/waiter for long periods of time and it took over 25 minutes to pay (only after we got up to... More

Our pleasant drive from Surrey to the Boardwalk at Port Solent couldnt have been more idyllic with dozens of yatchs moored along surrounded by dozens of restaurents and open seating. The day was filled with magical warm sunshine. We decided on trying Pizza Express thinking that it would be the usual pizza fare. We were delighted to soon discover that... More
