An underwhelming meal

My first experience of Pizza Express, actually my first experience of any of the known big pizza groups of restaurants, so may sound a little unimpressed. The restaurant in Abingdon is well located in the centre, an attractive building with pleasant courtyard. Staff friendly and courteous... read more

Visited Pizza Express in Abingdon buy yet again the service was extremely slow. The food was tasty but there was massive gaps between the courses. The service definitely needs to improve and I would recommend employing more staff because they cannot cope when busy.

Our waitress was lovely, although the food was a huge disappointment. My risotto was sparse, the pasta looked boring and the pizzas were tiny with minimal topping! The food also took an hour to arrive. I've had a million times better food in Ask, just down the road.

My boyfriend called in at the restaurant yesterday morning in person to make a reservation for dinner for two, but when we arrived in the evening no table had been reserved. Instead, we were shown to a table for four next to the kitchen, which was very noisy. Staff leaving the kitchen dropped cutlery and food on the floor on... More

Had a really nice meal with girlfriend, the food was fresh, fast and very well presented. I even made a strange request and the staff were happy to attend my needs. The staff (i think the manager) was keen to interact & even made light jokes. Will come again.

We were well looked after and the quality of the food was pretty good - not the best PE pizzas we've ever had but generally nice. The mixed side salads were mediocre and lacking but desserts, coffees etc were good. We sat outside, which was lovely.

Went here for a girls meal on a Friday night, lovely sunny evening so we sat outside, and that's where the enjoyment ended! 30-45 minutes before we were asked about drinks, they didn't have Prosecco, didn't have Pinot Grigio?!! The poor waitresses, the restaurant was clearly poorly managed and un prepared! Diners were left without starters, when we ordered the... More

After getting shown to our table and given menus we then waited for 45 minutes without even being offered a drink, in the end we walked out and went to Ask up the road where we had an amazing meal and received the best service. Not sure how long we would have been sat waiting for but 45 minutes was... More

I've been going to this pizza express for many years now and it is consistently under staffed, leading to poor and haphazard service. The food is always good but the near terrible service adds a bitter taste. They really need to step things up, to keep customers coming back
