Great

Good food & service at reasonable prices is what Pizza Express does best - and this one on North Bridge did not disappoint. Lovely thin pizza bases with flavoursome toppings.

Went here for dinner with my wife as we had a voucher for 25% off and had previously been to a pizza express that was ok. Despite the discount however we both thought at our pizzas were the worst we had ever had and not at all worth the bill. The base was ok but the cheese was chewy and... More

We really liked the first pizza express we tried in leith the atmosphere was awesome but here i was like it was a different chain. The fact the kitchen was in the middle of the restaurant made it feel like a canteen and the high ceiling didn't help the open atmosphere. The food wasn't as good although we had the... More

Went along enspec at lunchtime. Got a seat no problem. Service was good. Place was tidy and clean. Romana pizzas were very good. Diavolo recommended. Its expensive for a pizza but good value if you make use of your Tastecard.

Good service as usual here. Clean and efficient. Good way to spend Tesco vouchers, they apologized that they were busy and would be a wait for food, but seemed quick enough. Drinks good, but expensive, as usual.

Booked a table online and arrived a little early to find it was waiting for us on NYE. Service was a little slow but the place was packed. Food took a little while to arrive but was hot, fresh and very tasty. Only downside was the walk to the toilets means navigating the bar and kitchen area and as with... More

Visited during the busy month of December, when there were a few seasonal additions to the menu. Food was really good, a little bit more quirky than your regular pizza chains.

We visited without booking but managed to get a table though it was busy. The three of us had a lovely meal though did have to wait a while between courses. All food I think is reasonably priced and the fact that this chain takes a Taste Card is an added bonus
