Have been October'14 and January'15. Food was really good no complaints. But going as a group of friends we wanted to all pay separately we said as soon as we arrived and didn't get any indication we couldn't but when it came to paying the staff made us wait a long time because we had some cash some card and...

We came here before going to the Palace Theatre. We had to wait 15 minutes for a table for 2 at 6pm, when the table was ready they just separated a table for 4, to make two tables for 2. The space in-between the tables were no more than 2 inches so it wasn't a very private feeling as i... More

Great food, very close to the Palace Theatre, but dreadfully slow service. It took nearly 2 hrs for a meal, I wouldn't call it express!

The food was incredible! We had olives to start. Then a pizza each. I'm celiac so I had the gluten... More

The restaurant location was very near the Palace Theatre which suited us. Very modern and clean restaurant. Service was very friendly and efficient and it didn't take long to be seated and receive our drinks. We had Dough Balls Doppio for two as a starter which was very tasty and just the right portion. I had Romana Pizza NewCarbonara for... More

Nice modern Pizza Express, a bit cramped when busy. Feel they have tried to squeeze an extra table or two in where they weren’t designed to go so those customers feel in the way. Staff efficient and friendly. Noticed a young boy at an adjacent table with an activity sheet to colour and a pot of crayons supplied by the... More

We had tickets for Sheryl Crow playing at the Manchester Ritz on a Thursday night - and just enough time after work for a quick meal - Pizza Express seemed like a good solution. The Trip advisor reviews gave pause for thought – but everyone has their own experience and their own standards. We looked in and decided to give... More

I have been to many Pizza Express restaurants, but this was not one of the best by a long stretch. They gave me a meal I didn't order - the waitress didn't write my order when I gave it - so i'll make sure they do this next time; lesson learnt. Anyway, the food was good, as usual. But I... More

I'm a fairly regular user of Pizza Express but it was the first time I'd visited this establishment. Everything was fine - decent service and food as you'd expect. However the chairs - must be the worst I've ever sat on anywhere. Uncomfortable isn't the word, they are flat solid wood, no cushion or shape to help out, I worry... More
