Good food

The pizza express in purley is stylishly decorated as are all pizza expresses. The pizzas are good - although I wish the quattro stagione pizza had cheese on all the pizza and not just one quarter. The salad dressing is tasty. The coffee and mini dessert is a good idea to get a taste of something... read more

Quality one would expect from Pizza Express. Nice places to sit and clean and tidy. Convenient for us as a family so eat here few times a year.

The pizza express deals are great, not many restaurants have them throughout the weekend starting on Friday, smart thinking! Pizzas, salad and puddings are always delicious. The refurbishment looks great too. Only one tiny point, two large parties of children with their parents dining at 6.30 - 8pm made the restaurant very noisy, so not a good dining experience this...

I LIKE Pizza Express! Why? The menu is always reliable, and I have never had a bad meal yet! The first time I ate at Pizza Express was many years ago in Bristol. I remember that the pizza was delicious. The garlic bread with mozzarella cheese was big! However, it has shrunk over the years, but is still tasty. This... More

We stopped by on the way home as there were not many other places around the area to eat where you could actually sit down. The food was good, and the place itself looked nice enough. The let down however was with the staff. They were standing in the corner, some eating and some just talking. I had to physically... More

This Pizza Express has recently had a refresh. it is now a stylish restaurant . We had the fixed price Christmas menu which offers good value. The Bruschetta is really tasty. I had the pizza with the Hoisin Sauce and the pulled duck. This was really good and reminded me of eating a Chinese crispy duck. Helpful staff and always... More

Fantastic refurbishment and superb food made for a very enjoyable lunchtime pizza feast washed down with red wine... Superb service as well - nothing too much trouble. We look forward to our next visit.
