I spend a lot if time eating out and this pizza express is one I visit from time to time. Service is always good and staff always interact with my 4 year which is really great for my son. He enjoys showing them the picture he has drawn while waiting for his dinner to arrive. Colouring pencils and pictures supplied... More

Went to Pizza Express with another family and 5 kids only because we had Tesco vouchers. I suspect the majority of those eating there have vouchers of some sort otherwise it is really expensive. We ordered a range of fairly simple pizzas and were disappointed mainly because they lacked any topping especially cheese. When we complained we were offered a... More

We initially sat at a table outside and downstairs but after waiting 15 minutes and no staff appearing I went upstairs to see if that would be better. We were eventually seated outside, with a lovely view but when we eventually got drinks it was a full hour since we had arrived. The pizzas were ok but nothing to shout... More

We visited this restaurant on Friday night after a trip to the cinema. Arriving just after 10pm the place was very quiet with only a party of 6 being the the other diners. We were greeted warmly by a pleasant girl who spoke just enough English to get by. We ordered a garlic bread to share as a starter, this... More

Sat outside in the late afternoon sunshine having a cold glass of wine and eating olives watching the boats bob up and down and come and go in the harbour, very pleasant indeed. Had the Etna pizza which was hot, just how I like my pizza. The service was pleasant and efficient, however my mother inlaw did not enjoy her... More

We'd been queueing for Zizzi further down, but Pizza Express had a table on the upper level straight away. Although now groaning under the weight of its competition such as Zizzi, Prezzo, Ask etc which all seem classier, this was a lovely meal and especially in a stunning setting overlooking the marina and boats. The upper level seating was a... More

This is my second time here and again it doesn't fail to impress me or my two nuclear powered kids!!! The staff were rushing around but all of them still managed a smile. Although it was v busy the kids were still swamped in stickers, colouring books, and hats (thank you for that ;) When the food came out it... More

It was around 7pm when we decided to have nice meal out. As we live not so far from Port Solent our choice was Pizza Express. Welcome wasn't bad, the restaurant was totally empty even thought the other restaurants by the looks of it were quite full. As a starter, we ordered Dough Balls to share with three different dippings.... More

Worth a visit if pizza is your thing, but definitely try the chocolate glory dessert. I'm not into my sweets but it's fantastic!

My previous review was Pizza Express, Petersfield, resulting in us deciding we would never eat in a Pizza Express again. The next day we were visiting Port Solent and there was another branch, needing somewhere to eat before we travelled home and having the residue of Tesco vouchers in our pockets, we decided to take a chance, and what a...
