Dinner

We had an enjoyable meal here, the staff were very good, just as one expects from Pizza Express, and the food too was up to the usual high standards. We will happily return here.

Stayed a couple of nights in Kendal. If you like pizza then this is the place. Good staff in a nice surrounding.

They call it "Express" and this branch of the well known chain is certainly up to speed. The restaurant is bright and cheerful and the staff go out of their way to please. My pasta dish was carefully adjusted to suit my taste. The limoncello dessert was to die for.

Having been blitzed by numerous emails with money off offers I should have realised that all was not well. The "new" menu is a disappointment - I had the risotto - described as 'creamy'. Creamy it was definitely not! The only dish of the four we ordered which reasonably appetising was the lasagne. It was clear that the cost of... More

We were spending a few days in Cumbria. Very hungry from a day long sightseeing we looked for an eatery in Kendal and happened upon Pizza Express, what a stroke of luck because we were in for a very tasty feast. My wife had Risotto Prosciutto Piselli and I had the Lasagna Verde both of which were superb and delivered... More

First trip to a Pizza Express in a while. New menu but nothing special. The 'Pollo' salad came without the 'Pollo' and the 'American Hottest' pizza wasn't (tasty enough but not very hot). Friendly staff who were certainly not in a rush to see us pay the bill and leave.

We had received a voucher and was in town and thought we would pop in with our 17 month old child. The staff were very helpful and It was great value for money. The gave our little some crayons and colouring book. Pizzas are very tasty as well. Will defiantly return.

thank you pizza express for being the best restaurant in kendal!. My wife and I visited our grandchildren and daughter on Sunday, and once again enjoyed an excellent meal in your restaurant. The restaurant appeared very busy again, but nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Thank you again and we hope to visit again soon.

We had a very nice dinner including a starter, pizza, risotto, wine and dessert. Wait staff very attentive, courteous, and efficient. Only down side is the noise level was so high it was difficult to hear to visit with our friends over dinner.

Always a good place to eat. The service is swift and good and the food is always to a high standard. They are particularly good with food allergies/intolerance and are happy to check all ingredients for you.
