Uncut Pizza!

Good but is it normal that we had to cut our own pizzas, seems like for what they are charging they could cut a pizza up for me! Pizzas are huge by the way

So, our waitress, with tell tale "wine mouth" came to take our order, didn't write ANY of it down, returned (fairly quickly, but it was pretty empty) with our drinks, three out of four, correct, then food... My daughter got the wrong pizza, I got the wrong main course, and my youngest son got a pizza that was only partially... More

Never wrote on trip advisor before- but must comment on what an awful time we had. Pizzas were cold, service was slow and rude. Woman who seemed to be manager was sour faced and was clearly struggling to handle a mildly busy restaurant! Should most definitely review there staffing choices!

Some friends and I decided to stop off in Kendal after spending some time exploring the lake district. We found this lovely restaurant tucked away just off the main street. What a find. The service was top notch and welcoming from the moment we arrived. I ordered the Calabrese pizza which came promptly and was absolutely delicious. The waitress couldn't... More

We decided my wife and I to stop off at Kendal after a trip to the north lakes, and just by chance visited the pizza express there. We are so glad we did! Excellent meal, and service, simply second to none. Well done!!. The service we had from the waitress we had, I think her name was Katie, was lovely,... More

It's a shame to be writing a bad review here as the service and food has historically been excellent. However, not so this time around. We had booked a table for 5.30pm and were swiftly seated. However, it was busy and it became clear quite quickly that the staff couldn't handle it. We waited ages to be offered drinks and... More

Visited this restaurant last week, cannot rate highly enough. The food and service was excellent in a lovely atmosphere. Special mention to the manager who greeted us warmly and as well as the excellent food, he was very knowledgeable and helpful about the local area. Thank you.

Went in on Saturday evening having never been before and was very pleased with my choice. The restaurant was very busy but the staff were still extremely attentive and very friendly. The food came very quickly, especially considering how busy the restaurant was. The pizza's (I think I had and American Hot) were great and I would definitely recommend anyone... More

Pizza Express has become our regular choice when visiting family in Kendal. The service is always spot on and the Pizza some of the best that I have ever tasted. Our most recent visit was during the school holidays so the place was packed. Nevertheless, we were very well looked after and were able to have a drink outside in... More
