Excellent evening

There were a group of us 3 teenagers and 4 adults. We had to wait a while to have our drinks order taken but after that everything ran smoothly. Our waiter was fantastic and his interaction with the kids was great. Our meals were spot on and no one had any grumbles. The Rissotto was superb by the... read more

Visiting the restaurant today and the experience was awful. Although the restaurant was busy it was no excuse for the extremely slow service. A previous reviewer has mentioned that the place should not be called Pizza Express, because there is nothing 'express' about it. I can only concur. When the food eventually did come, the Caesar Salad came with black... More

Cold plate made the pizza Romana cold to eat. One item ordered did not arrive at all, but maybe my fault for not making it clear or maybe the waiter didn't understand. Friendly welcome. Spacious and clean restaurant. Very close to theatres for before a show, but it's not as good as other Pizza Express outlets..... I've enjoyed them in... More

ordered food for a group of 4, took 1 hour for the food to arrive, food was brought out at different times (my husbands 20 minutes after ours) we also waited a while for more drinks, very dissappointed to pay £90 for very average food and poor service, felt robbed! will not be going back

This is a late post as it was November 14 but it has bothered me since because as a result we have never been to another Pizza Epress since and as a matter of principle ...I would rather use my money elsewhere . We chose Pizza Express to try out our new Tastecards and for my birthday . The overall... More

I've been to so many of these; they're great for mixed parties whether someone has children, dietary requirements or if you're a group of pals out for an evening. However, this particular restaurant was so much better than any Pizza Express I've eaten at; the food was delicious (especially the salads), portions were generous and service was excellent.

Food was very good but service was extremely poor. Bored looking waitress, no mention of the fact there is a children's menu, mistakes when ordering and no apology over them - I could go on. Very disappointed as I usaully enjoy eating at Pizza Express.

I asked for a spritzer and was charged £4.85 for a small wine and the lemonade was£1.75!!! We wanted a flat garlic bread instead if dough balls.. So they... More
