Nice Food - Rubbish Service

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... read 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

Reliable food and service and a great setting. Next to the Gun Wharf shopping centre and has great views over the harbour and ferries.

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...
