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!

Overall entertaining and good value as long as your not in a hurry... More

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

Called in to this pizza express last night before going to the theatre. Didn't have a lot of time but the staff made sure they took our order quickly and the food arrived very promptly. Our food was delicious and the staff really looked after us. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

We opted to dine here last night as we travelled to Manchester for a gig at The Ritz. This restaurant was ideally situated as it was literally three minutes from Oxford Road train station and about the same to the venue. We were seated straight away as it was 5pm on a Monday evening and there was just two of... More

We felt the staff were pleasant and kind, friendly but not over familiar, Food was nice, fresh and hot v tasty. Olives and almonds gorgeous. Didn't wait long which was great as off to a show after. However we would have ordered second drinks but was never offered them so we didn't bother asking.

We booked a table in advance for a Saturday evening. The restaurant filled up while we were there and they were eventually turning people away. The pizza I ordered was probably one of the best I've ever had! It was quite a large pizza but the base was so thin and light, the portion was actually the perfect size. We... More
