Very disappointing

We've eaten here many times and considering it is so expensive you would expect great food unfortunately this is not so, especially today. It seems pizza express has gotten too big for its boots. I've noticed this more and more lately. My mother and I thought we'd give it another chance and visited... read more

Went to this for a romantic NYE Meal. Was nice the service was great but something was a miss the food was okay and well done for a chain, but it felt empty. I would give it a better review, but it was functional and perfunctory rather than outstanding

We visited Pizza Express in Preston City centre two nights ago. We waited just inside the door to be seated. We were ignored for the first 5 minutes by all staff. We were then told to sit at the small bar where there were no bar staff to serve us, so we continued to stand and wait to be seated... More

Visited today with a friend for a quick bite to eat on our lunch break. Seated very quickly, fast and wonderful service by all staff and the food arrived quickly and piping hot!! So tasty and very filling. We will most certainly be back in the new year! Merry Christmas to all the staff x

I soaked 2 napkins in oil which dripped off my pizza. The food was blanned and very average. Today I haven't been off the toilet... More

Visit this pizza express at least once a month and whether it's at lunch time or a busy evening we are always happy with the food and service, especially now there is a vegan pizza which I usually have. The staff are always happy to modify any of the menu to meet my needs and we will be visiting on... More

Arrive for tea before a concert at the guild hall, seated at a small corner table, and asked for 2 pints of diet coke no ice. We were presented with 2 small bottles, and a 2 small glasses filled with ice. (I think, judging by her hair, make up and dragging feet, our waitress was really really hungover and didn't... More
