Yes this is your basic chain pizza restuarant but they have quite a nice variety of Italian dishes which are very reasonable by London standards and best of all you will be seated immediately and served with a smile. You can even get ice cubes in your drink, a rarity in London. My favorite Pizza Express is the one near... More

I love Pizza express - they pizzas are not too big & the crusts are wonderfully thin. Consistwntlt good quality and with service to match. It's not fine dining, but it is tasty and good value. A real Italian friend of mine has a downer on Pizza Express, but I can't see why - it's every bit as good as... More

we really enjoyed our meals at Pizza Express. Nice casual atmosphere, good size portions and a very good variety of Italian food - something for everyone. We had the pizza, salads, risotto and dessert. Delicious! After a long day of sightseeing, Pizza Express was perfect.

OK, so food in every Pizza Express is the same as in every other Pizza Express - that's why I like it. I know that my favourite dishes will be of a consistent standard. What makes the real difference is how you are treated, and I have to say we were treated very well here. We were in a large... More

The staff was nice and attentive; the olives for the starter were well marinated; the pizza was good, but not great as it was lacking salt and was also a bit to oily, but overall good; the red wine was too warm, so returned it and it came back a tad cooler, but still not as desired; the espresso and...

Always enjoy pizza express; even better with special offers, especially Tesco Clubcard points.4 Good pizzas, decent wines and the dolcetti are just right to finish.

Four seasons is my favorite pizza because I get to try 4 different types of taste! It is quite a big pizza and it will fill you in without having starter! I often go there with my friends because its relaxing and friendly place!

After a fun filled afternoon at the British Museum, seven (including 4 children) of us found our way to this Pizza Express for an early dinner. We arrived at about 5 pm and wondered whether the restaurant was open. Fortunately, it was and there was no trouble accommodating our party. By the time we were leaving the place was packed!...

This Pizza Express is an old Dairy , it has the old tiles on the walls and floors which makes it look different to the usual chain resteraunt ! ( although my daughter said it reminded her of a toilet ! ) The service was very good and the food was the usual high standard !

After a long day walking round local museums we wanted something quick yet nice to eat and this really did hit the spot. Clean and tidy, friendly staff, great food and best of all a great lunch time offers! Pizza and started for £11.95 which in Central London is great.
