I have visited a few different Pizza Express restaurants in the past and always find that food and pricing is average. I came here as I received some nectar vouchers for a 2 course meal. Unfortunately the day I visited a few things were off the menu as no stock but then it was a Saturday so that... read more

Visited here a few days ago and have to say it was a really good meal. The menu has a lot of choice and very good value. The two courses and prosecco for £17.95 was very good. Service fast and friendly. Great atmosphere. Definitely recommend!

Pizza express is one of my favourite restaurants normally however was very disappointed with this one. We arrived and ended up waiting 45 mins for our starters to come out... to our surprise it was our mains that arrived instead , the waitress didn't even apologise and the restaurant was only half full. When my main came out my pizza... More

For the third time in 3 weeks still only 2 out of 5 small deserts available. Early evening, so why no small deserts! Three Mondays three times no deserts. Just not good enough.

Overall this two-floor trendy venue is fantastic. The staff were very accommodating and helpful (no issues with me changing my booking time at the last minute). Upbeat music and a high-energy open kitchen give this high-street diner a brilliant atmosphere. Not very cheap for a chain restaurant but the food is fresh-tasting and exciting, the pizzas traditional and tasty but... More

I love pizza express...usually. The service at this one was just awful, rude waiters and eye rolling to everyone in the restaurant. They couldn't wait to get us out the door on a not too busy Wednesday evening. It was only just 8pm when we were hurried to leave. Such a shame. I had to wait 20mins for a drink,... More

The staff were very friendly but, unfortunately the service was slow and the food was bland. Our starters were served 20 minutes after we ordered. I actually thought they had forgotten about us. The garlic bread was ok but the risotto starter was incredibly bland and tasteless. Our pizzas were served before our starter plates had been cleared. Not a... More

We booked the Pizza Express in Chelmsford for a family birthday get-together. There were 11 of us and we arrived at 7pm. The main courses were served at just before 9pm! We complained and eventually we spoke to the female manager who tried to fob us off with excuses such as it was because some of us had starters. The... More
