Pre concert meal

Ate here before attending a concert in Leicester. Meal represented good value at about £45 for three courses + coffee for two. Staff were polite and friendly, all food was sieved promptly but at the same time was unhurried. Would recommend and re-visit this establishment.

Went to this pizza express recently, service was good but the quality of food was horrid. We ordered to pastas for me and my wife one had so many onions chucked in the other was filled with peppers, hardly any pasta! Stick to the one in highcross! This has almost put me off pizza express for life

Pizza Express is reliably good for great Italian food and fantastic service. The King's Street branch has lots of character and is always busy so there's great atmosphere. We love the dough balls and always go for the extra thin romana base pizzas (classic's nice too but you feel like you're getting more with the romanas!) Waiting staff are always... More

I don't need to write a lengthy review about how good it is at pizza express. It wasn't an outstanding meal but the setting and atmosphere made it feel like it was. The food was nice but if I had to go elsewhere for a better pizza I would have. By no means am I saying that it wasn't nice... More

Although I put Pizza Perfect for my title I didn't actually have a pizza but it rhymes! My friend and I visited this restaurant twice in the last month and couldn't fault anything. There is a lovely selection of dishes. My friend had the nicoise salad on both occasions and I had lasagne the first time and then the bolognese... More

Not the best Pizza Express, went to great lengths to explain about vegan option and then they made it with cheese. They are prob good at pizza but not salads Can't really say anymore except maybe we'll try somewhere else next time as wasn't that impressed.

The manager was very accommodating to our requests and even though the restaurant was quite empty it didn't feel it as the ambiance with the team and the general vibe you get in there is quite a positive one. Food always on point and out of all the pizza express restaurants in town I will always stay loyal to this... More

Had been to see Much Ado at the Curve Theatre and decided to extend our visit to Leicester by having an early supper as well. Picked this Pizza Express as it was handy for the station. We arrived early-ish and it was very quiet and the whole placed looked clean and fresh. The windows looked sparkly and generally it looked... More
