Our 4yo and 7yo love this just as much as us. Perfect early on for families. Kids menu is excellent. The kids feel like they are treated the same as grown ups with the 3 course dinner ending with babiccino and desert, perfectly balanced with the kids chefs hat and stickers. The staff are really friendly and service great despite... More

Originally went Friday night but was packed so booked for Saturday night instead. Was still very busy when we made our booking but got to a table quickly. It took some time for a waiter to come to our table for our order but by that time we had decided on drinks, starters and mains so ordered all at once.... More

It's really funny that the only time I've really had good food from pizza express is this one in Chelmsford. I just seem to be able to get the service right at the speed of the food coming out. There was a good atmosphere around and always leave feeling satisfied

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...
