Early supper with a friend - the service and food is good and I know I can take my daughter because they offer gluten free food as well

2 out of 5 is probably a little unfair as the food isnt bad. The pizza I had was actually quite nice. I wasnt impressed with the starter I had. It seemed to be a few prawns with a tin of tomato passata with a bit of spinich chucked in. No seasoning or any other flavour. Expected a bit more... More

Very average food for above average prices. Tasteless sharing starter (lacked something to dip the bland bread in) followed by ultra thin pizza that proved tough to defeat with a standard table knife. There is much better value and quality available in the area. Really noisy and acoustically unpleasant room didn't help...

I know its a pizza place but some of the non pizza dishes are top notch. The service is always fast and efficient and everyone is always polite. There are often deals on or you can use a tastecard to get discount most days of the week so it is always affordable. It is nice to be able to see... More

We were undecided where to have dinner on Sunday evening having visited the Lakes earier in the day. We only happened upon Pizza Express because I was showing my partner down Wainwright's Yard to explain the history and show her where Booth's is now located. The restaurant is very bright, clean and modern and as it was a Sunday evening... More

We have eaten lunch here 3 times.The food and service is spot on. Each time it was fairly busy as this Pizza Express is very popular. The staff are all very friendly, service is speedy and the food is good. We will be back soon.

This resaturant is tucked away down a back street in Kendal and if it wasn't for the sign on the wall by the main road I wouldn't have known it was there. The staff were friendly and accommodating when I asked for a table for one, something that some places make you feel uncomfortable about asking for. However as I... More

This is probably the busiest pizza express we have ever been in but the food and service were not compromised in any way.
