If you like Pizza Express then you'll like it here!

It was late, and we hadn't eaten when we spotted this Pizza Express right next door to our hotel. It felt new, and was nicely decorated inside, one of the nicest I've visited in fact. The food was just what you'd expect from Pizza Express. Fairly quick, good quality and tasty. What's not to like... read more

We had a lovely meal here and I couldn't fault it at all! I had pre-booked a table the day before as we were going to see a show at the Palace and I imagined it would get very busy as it was so close. Server was very attentive, checked to make sure our food was okay, bringing new drinks... More

Pleasantly surprised with the choice of new dishes on the menu. Many of the options give calaries intake. Good value for money, friendly efficient staff. Great location for Palace theatre but need to book for theatre times.

We visited here with little time just prior to a show at the Palace Theatre. The staff were really attentive knowing we had a deadline. The Nicoise pizza and Eldiablo pizzas were first rate. We had the Sauvignon Blanc wine, Storm Crossing from New Zealand's Marlborough region which really is excellent and as I have found, impossible to get in... More

We went before the theatre, got a seat but did get there early to make sure of this, lots were turned away so booking is probably better if you need to eat later.Were met as soon as we arrived, service good no waiting for drinks, food appeared on time. overall a good place to eat.

Was surprised at reading some of the previous reviews. Busy Friday teatime, greeted as soon as we entered and offered a couple of places to sit. Our waiter was efficient and very friendly - orders taken quickly and drinks brought over within a few minutes by another lovely waitress. Food is standard Pizza Express fare, not my favourite but does... More

Went for a quick meal, very cramped and we were a bit shoved in the corner, but was convenient for the theatre. I had a voucher, but it wasn't deducted off the bill the first time, so make sure you check your bill ! Food was nice and the waitress was very good, but all the deserts we ordered were... More

Last Wednesday night me and my partner visit this Pizza Express. We waited at reception for a good two or three minutes before getting acknowledged by a staff member. After a while we were then seated, and were given a couple of minutes to look at the menu. We regularly go to pizza express and know the menu pretty well... More

Popped in here for dinner whilst attending an event in Manchester. We had a young baby with us and just wanted to get something to eat before settling into our hotel for the night. Friendly greeting and quickly shown to a table where we ordered three drinks which the waiter forgot one of. We ordered a pizza and two veggie... More
