Staff went out of their way to rectify

We always choose Pizza Express over the competition for a better fresher pizza. The restaurant was packed & it was obvious they were short staffed & very stretched. Staff looked shattered & it was only mid afternoon. We had to wait nearly an hour which normally I'd moan about but one of the... read more

Dreadful, if I could give no stars I would. I went a few weeks ago and got slow, inaccurate service, they gave me my £5 change all in 20p pieces and clearly thought that was OK, I gave it the benefit of the doubt last week and the bill was wrong (admittedly to my advantage but I did tell them)...

I have had several poor experiences at the Northampton Pizza Express that has always been at odds with our experience of them across the country but have always gone back becuase my daughter loved the children's menu - however the last time she went with my wife and a group of friends - the meals even though pre-ordered because of...

Went with a friend of mine, great service and food, I had the Romana Padana which is my favourite at P.E. The manager and waitress was serving us through out the evening and both were very polite and helpful. Great service and food as expected by any Pizza Express! Thanks!

Met friends for lunch. Northampton is a natural meeting point between 3 different areas. We arrived early (at 12 noon). It was freezing in the restaurant and my friend had to keep her coat on. The lady serving us was very pleasant but it was clear from about 12.15 onwards that she was pretty much on her own with the... More

We have visited this Pizza Express many times in the past and it has always been excellent. We had not been recently and was shocked at how down hill it has gone. We had booked a table for 9 of us as an early NYE meal with kids. It took 55 minutes to be served starters, these arrived before our... More

Booked a family meal for 26 of us to celebrate someone's birthday and also Christmas. I emailed the manager Michael a couple of days prior to give him the exact number of people attending and the food order. I mentioned in the email that I had been on trip advisor and the reviews were not great. He emailed back saying... More

Yes it was 8 days before Christmas, it was fairly busy, but 1 hour and 5 minute wait for 3 starters, which tasted bland and was cold- I ate it coz I was hungry after a 50 mile drive to visit my friend. Told we would have discount, mains arrived, again bland and cold. Took 50% off bill, but spoil... More

The food is generally good and, in fairness it was too on this visit. But,that said oh dear.. the service, or lack of it! It was just like having a meal on a building site with uncleared tables all around for the duration of the meal which does not make for a pleasant dining experience (reminiscent of the worst motorway...
