We went to pizza express with several children for a quick meal before an evening show at the nearby Palace Theatre. They let us hold the table for 15 minutes afterthe booking time despite several members of the party being delayed. The food arrived just as we needed it to as we were running late. And it was tasty and... More

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
