Nice food, pleasant and efficient service

Nice food, and friendly, fast service. Well priced, especially once you use one of the voucher codes that are regularly available

We eat regularly at Pizza Express and always leave satisfied that we've had a freshly made tasty pizza but on this rare occasion it wasn't the case. I opted for the new American hottest pizza that was displayed everywhere around the restaurant, the pizza looked full of toppings with lots of torn buffalo mozzarella spread around the base, what I...

Been here at least once a year for over ten years. On my most recent visit the staff were, as always, all friendly, helpful and professional, the menu large with a good selection of old favourites and some specials. Pizza Express pizzas are decent enough, but nothing special, you can make equal yourself with ingredients from Aldi - miles better... More

Visited a couple of weeks ago on a works night out. The restaurant was trendy, clean and had a good atmosphere. The food was lovely and the staff were faultless. A young lad served us, he was very helpful and polite and let us stay later while we finished off some drinks.

We often go to this restaurant and it never lets us down. The service is always great and the staff are brilliant with our two young children. This time we took some friends with us and they hadn't been to a Pizza Express for years, they thoroughly enjoyed it, good food, service and nice atmosphere. definitely recommend.

Catering for over 40 people could be a nightmare for some on a Tuesday evening, but not at this Place. Great service and great food.

Third visit here on business trips. Each time I have had a friendly welcome and was found a table (for one) even though on each occasion it was pretty full. I enjoyed the salad Nicoise followed by the new 'legere' lemon and vanilla ice cream.

Nice restaurant on King Street. Leicester. However our table was next to the ice cream prep station. We noticed the scoop fall and hit the floor. It was picked up and put in what appeared to be a special pot for unclean utensils. A few mins later the same scoop was used to serve an ice cream! When brought to... More

We've eaten in King Street Pizza Express several times over a few years and have never been disappointed. We have always had a nice welcome, excellent attentive service, great food, and good wine. Pizza Express usually offers some good value offers through its website so the total bill is usually not too bad. We've been when it has been quiet,... More
