Dropped by for lunch. It was a nice quite place and not too busy. Enjoyed the relaxing soft music while watching the hustling traffic pass. Our waiter was not the best, but his coworker seen and bent over backwards to help us.

Good service, friendly staff & the usual quality pizzas you expect from Pizza Express. The restaurant is handy for both Princes Street & the Royal Mile and has a nice interior. The waitress was very helpful with swapping toppings and so on & offered to pack up our daughter's pudding which she was too full for, something that we've never... More

After a show at the cinema my partner and I decided to pop in to pizza express on northbridge on our way home. Despite the fact that the restaurant was almost packed to the gunnels, we were greeted at the door by I presume a manager, with a smile from ear to ear! It was a shock to read earlier... More

I ordered vegetable Lasagne and told the waitress clearly and she said ok cool. Was served with beef Lasagne, after couple of spoons I wondered where are the vegetables gone in the Lasagne and why it does not taste like vegetables in there. Well this was horrible, being strict vegetarian and being served this food made me sick. Never going... More

Ate here trying the new lunch menu - very impressed - a delicious meal. The service was good and our server was pleasant. As always with Pizza Express you can rely on getting a decent and reasonably priced bite to eat!

We pre-booked a table for ten at 5:30 on a Monday evening. Upon arriving we waited to be seated by a confused and dazed waitress which then led to another ten minute wait for our drink order to be taken (we decided to order our food at this time to make things as simple and speedy as possible.) Drinks were... More

We had to wait an hour and a half for our pizza. When we asked the manager (Mary-Kate Oneill) was extremely rude and actually started an argument with us. I would under no circumstances reccomend this place. A truly horrible experience.

If it's Pizza etc you're after then you can't go too far wrong with a visit to this restaurant. Visited this particular branch twice over the recent Bank Holiday weekend, firstly for a late lunch on my wife's birthday and the service and food were fine, the waiter persuaded us to come in when we said we were undecided &...

Not a lot to say really, it's a pizza express...... Food was ok, same as in any other branch I would guess. Fresh tasting topping on a very thin based pizza. Good service. Tables very close together so is noisy and music was loud (and crap :-/ ) but was fine altogether. I'm not a fan of chain restaurants as... More

The restaurant was very busy on Easter Sunday evening with the noise of diners almost as loud as the music. On sitting down, we were amused to overhear a couple half our age asking for the music to be turned down. Nor were we surprised when it wasn't. The food was the standard pizza express offering. The lasagne was unavailable... More
