Very crowded on a Sunday evening, close to the Royal Mile. Pizza was good, but it was just pizza, nothing extraordinary. Other food was also okay, but again, nothing special. Service was okay, too, but not special.

Staff were lovely and accommodating, very friendly even when I had to send my pizza back due to it been very well done. The lovely waitress even brought me a chocolate cupcake with a candle in when she knew it was my birthday.

The food is always good, the staff are polite and the prices are always reasonable but this restaurant is far too crowded. I had to sit with my seat pushed right in as there was a 'larger gentleman' in the seat behind me and everyone kept hitting other peoples elbows as there was no room to walk past. Not great!

Dreadful pasta.The restaurant itself is fine and the pizzas similar. Service fine and fast service. But......., and this is a general comment, not aimed specifically at this outlet, the pasta is terrible. My chicken and pesto tasted exactly like those instant packets of pasta and sauce you buy in the corner shop in an emergency. Decidedly unnatural, the sauce has... More

Having been turned away by the full, but seemingly empty, Pizza Express Holyrood, we headed here and although it was rammed we only had to wait a few minutes before being seated. This PE is brilliantly run, fast, efficient and delivers what you want and expect

Visited Edinburgh during the festival so extremely busy. Managed to get into Pizza Express and so glad we did. Pizzas were good but it was more our experience with the staff who made our visit truly memorable. Although perhaps not 'fine dining' as such, our waitress happily answered our questions pertaining to the menu bearing in mind the restaurant was... More

Had a meal here last night and although it was very busy we were seated straight away. The menu was a slimmed down version with Fringe being on to speed up the kitchen time. This worked because the food did arrive very quickly, almost before drinks. It did take some time after eating to get and pay the bill etc... More

I have been to many Pizza Expresses over the years but this one deserves a review from me. We visited in the pique of the fringe traffic having just got out of a show at 7pm. We had another show to catch in two hours so were patient with this one when we arrived. The manager was very good. He... More

We went with the family on a Saturday evening during the festival and the place was packed, with a queue out the door. To their credit, the management had plenty of staff on so we soon got a table and service was quick. Our waitress, Hayley, was pleasant and efficient and we enjoyed the food. Overall, it was a good... More
