Went here on a second date, Booked a table through my taste card. We got there and it was quiet we ordered our food the starters came out quickly enough and were great. The restaurant then got very busy and I don't think they were ready for it so the food took a little longer for the mains. And it... More

Fantastic refurbishment and superb food made for a very enjoyable lunchtime pizza feast washed down with red wine... Superb service as well - nothing too much trouble. We look forward to our next visit.

I love Pizza and I love Pizza Express. This is a good one! The thing that so often lets Pizza Express down for me is cold plates. My girlfriend says I'm too fussy but I'm English and I like my food hot. Hot pizza plus cold plate = lukewarm pizza. Anyway, plates were hot. Pizza was hot. Atmosphere was buzzing.... More

Of the many Pizza Express restaurants we have visited, this sits as one of the best. Whilst most offer a reliable experience, especially when coping with the little ones, this restaurant really stands out.

Greeted by a wonderful warm lady who had a great sense of humour, and, at the same time, wanted us to have a great experience of the restaurant. We just wanted to be lazy and not cook, so went to Pizza Express in St Johns Wood, but we both came away feeling we had had an authentic Italian experience. Pizza... More

I visited Pizza Express whilst on a working trip in London and was solo. The service was very attentive. I wanted something that wasn't on the menu apparently! I described the sort of taste I wanted and the waitress described a meal to me and said it would be no problem to make this. The meal arrived and was quite... More

this is my local. I stopped going because I can put up with slow service but cannot be happy with poor quality food as well. The last two visits were a total waste of money. I have never had an order taken in less than 30 minutes. Then there is another 20 minute wait for starters with hungry kids. On... More

Had a really nice meal a low fat option. It was really tasty but best of all was our superb waitress what a star. She was attentive, efficient and very happy on her work. A generous tip recognised that. Fully recommend.
