Went whilst visiting Manchester with family at the weekend. Good points: waiter was friendly and most of food was ok. Bad points: order was completely wrong. Wrong starter given to kids, no starter for wide which the came with the main meal. Service was slow, manager seemed to be arguing with team which was visible. The milk jug that came... More

I should start by saying that I am a big fan of Pizza Express and have enjoyed some excellent meals in a number of their restaurants and intend to keep doing so. However, that only really makes this visit even more disappointing. I enjoy hot spicy pizzas and have regularly enjoyed Pizza Express's 3 or 4 hot spicy pizza's. So... More

After a very busy morning looking around various museums followed by some shopping we were more than ready for our lunch. This particular restaurant is tucked away from the main shopping area but only a few minutes walk from the Arndale centre. First impressions were that it was clean with a good bustling atmosphere. We were shown to a cosy... More

We went there today and while the service was fast the food was awful. I ordered a larger pizza but they brought a small one and I brought it to their attention but they made some excuse about the menu changing - fair enough . Anyway, I'm glad I didn't get the larger one because the pizza was terrible, it... More

I'm a fan of Pizza Express and we frequently visit the one in our home town, so it was a natural choice for a late lunch/early dinner when we visited Manchester recently, particularly as we didn't have a huge amount of time for a long, leisurely meal and so needed somewhere that could serve us reasonably quickly. I like this... More

Visited early Friday evening and were surprised to see only 3 or 4 tables occupied. Despite that, we had to wait ages for someone to come and take us to our table, then to order. 5 minutes after ordering the waitress came back to say the risotto wasn't available as they'd run out of salmon. We asked if they could... More

We always dine in Pizza Express wherever we travel. This time we chose this site as it's newly opened so expected to be wowed, it's way too far from being excited, ordered Etna pizza and it suppose to have sausage on it, but it wasn't there, some weird sausage paste was on it, same pizza in other restaurants looked absolutely...

Never any complaints with the food, you get what you express at Pizza Express. I like the leggera range - the sloppy giuseppe is a welcome range and probably my favourite now over the spicy chicken I normally go for. Kids dough balls were good and my gluten free Pilsner was interesting and actually pretty tasty. Here's the thing though... More
