Love Pizza Express but sadly more and more the experience does not meet our expectations. Pizza depends on the pizzaola, sometimes excellent, other occasions dry and almost burnt. Service over friendly rather than professional. Restaurant ambience and decor excellent. Sadly always suffered with... read more

By italian stardards, if you have travelled to italy, you would completely appreciate that this is not a good restaurant. In fact, theres nothing express about this pizza. The only "express" I had was in my expression when I took my first bite of the pizza, the dough is like glue and the tomato salsa that this restaurant uses is... More

Service over friendly rather than professional. Restaurant ambience and decor excellent. Sadly always suffered with noise issue, not an easy one to overcome. When they get it right, hard to beat.

Our party of 10 had booked for dinner after attending a matinee show at the nearby theatre. The production finished earlier than we had anticipated, but a quick phone call to the restaurant to explain and we were welcomed early, without any fuss or kerfuffle. This consistently good nationwide chain of Italian restaurants didn't fail on this occasion. The dining... More

To be honest we don't visit on a regular basis. After a cinema trip on a cold wet Wednesday we went for the convenience and to use our taste card. It was fairly busy but not full. The service was quick and friendly, we didn't have to wait too long for our food,which was hot and tasty,though I always think... More

The desert was not great as it was a 'cold' brownie with cold ice cream, I asked the waiter to warm it up he then put it in he oven with the ice cream and when it was returned to me the ice cream was melted and mushy. The employee then argued with me saying it wasn't melted and warm... More

Called in on Boxing Day, not busy but very much felt like the "B team" were on. Ok greeting, restaurant cold, initial service prompt. Refit good, but already feels a bit mucky. Then took an age for food to come, and some toppings were wrong. Food was luke warm and side salad very basic, and not crisp. Drinks very highly... More

Managed to get a last minute table for four. Very busy in fact the noise was at times unbearable. I think if the waiting staff hadn't been so efficient and competent I would have left. As other reviewers have said this place is packed to the brim with seats. Really pleased we had a booth as the space otherwise was... More
