Been here several times over the years and I always know what to expect with regards to the quality of food. It is just what you would expect of a large, chain of Italian restaurants. Never had a bad meal, but never had an exceptional meal. The best tip that I would give is to go on their website if... More

My boyfriend and I visited Pizza Express in a Saturday evening. It was busy but there were empty tables. We stood waiting to be attended to for over 10 minutes whilst the manager stood chatting with his arms folded. He saw us standing there but did not come over. A queue of people was building up behind us. Eventually someone... More

Was shown to an unmade table. Couldn't read the menu as the light above the table was out. Thank god for the light on the smart phone. Eventually the starter arrived and I had to search around the empty tables for cutlery. I also lit the candles. The radiator went off behind our table. And we froze. I had to... More

My wife,myself, our Son and Daughter-in Law and two very young children visited this restaurant on lunchtime 17/12/2014. We were the first customers when the restaurant opened at 12 noon but we were surprised to find that other customers who arrived after us were served before us and had their meals long before we had ours. The meals themselves were... More

Popped in for late lunch on Sunday. Waitress was extremely friendly and attentive. For once we managed to avoid the screaming kids that are so often in these places (why do families insist on eating out with such small children and ruining everyone else's lunch out?). Had to wait a while for the food because we had ordered just after... More

Went for lunch and no problems getting a table. Two members of staff, one really nice and very helpful, the other, a bad attitude problem. Pizza express ought to take their staff aside and make sure they leave their bad manners at home and not to offer personal opinions about anything or let it influence their behaviour in the work...

Tried to visit on Tuesday evening, the restaurant wasn't anywhere close to full yet despite this we stood by the entrance for over 5 minutes and were ignored. Several members of staff saw us, but failed to acknowledge us, it was like each of them was expecting another member of staff to seat us. I wouldn't have minded if one... More

The food was pretty poor here, pizzas smothered with tomato base and hunting for meat. The kids pasta portion was microscopic. The acoustics are also terrible making it quite an unpleasant dining experience.

We were a group of 6 Mums out for a birthday meal on a Saturday night. Many food options were unavailable. They had also run out of the white wine we wanted so we ordered another, which was about £1.50 more. We asked if we could have it at the same price as our preferred but unavailable wine. The waiter... More
