Fantastic service and fantastic food, The place was heaving and really busy due to the shrek show a few doors down, but the staff asked us to wait 10 mins and found us a table as quick as they could. 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

We went during the lunch break at a convention in Palace hotel. Unfortunately so did about a dozen other conventioneers at exactly the same time, resulting in PEs service going into meltdown. The food was of the standard one expects from this chain, but our advice is to ask how long the waiting time is for food, especially on a... More

We went for a late lunch today whilst in Manchester for the Coronation Street Tour. We arrived after 2pm and the restaurant was pretty much empty. We were seated straight away, and the food was really tasty. We both had salads. They took a while to come considering the lack of people, but still really tasty. The service was slow... More

Pizza Express does a range of Italian dishes however the best thing is that they offer discount with the NUS extra card. I got 40% off which was great!

What a restaurant, the operation is so very slick. We were in Manchester for the Palace theatre. The restaurant is just a couple of minutes walk away from the theatre. We had booked a table by phone, as we arrived , we were immediately seated. The service was fast without being pushy and the food very good. The whole ambiance... More
