Nice meal

This was a good meal out for the me and the kids when I was visiting my brother. I had a lovely chicken ceasar salad but the place could have been more kid friendly.

everything as expected Food a bit average, fairly standard fare for mid range Italian, service was cheery and made a very pleasant family celebration. Calzone picante want really. It needed some more zing, bit bland, even the very mild chilli oil didn't rescue it and it could have done with another couple of minutes in the oven. The freshly made... More

We often go this Pizza Express as you can park nearby in the large car park which is pay and display and is a fixed charge for the whole evening. The food is very good and the staff are lovely and very helpful but one gave it 4 stars as the service can be a little slow in busy periods,... More

As a family we love Pizza Express, comforting quality and menu that we know the kids will enjoy. Although George Street would be the nearest and easiest for us, we always drive to This one as the service is far far better. Usual food... Kids love pizza as do I, and with the nice big windows at the front and... More

Bad customer service. Understaffed Don't think we saw one member of staff with a smile on their faces. Taking orders was bad. Food was ok. Manager (I assume) grumpy and spent most of her time on the her phone. Waiter crashing round trying to clean coffee machine . We had to go and Find someone to take our dessert order... More

This isn't my favourite branch but in fairness to them, this time they managed to cook my pizza well and I was happy. Other occasions here have not been as positive. I ordered a marguerita pizza with extra toppings and it was well cooked and delicious.

It is very under staffed. The staff seem grumpy. The cups are dusty because i assume noone goes there. The chocolate fudge cake was stale.

We both love pizza express, this last time we went it was lovely but you really do pay over the top for the pizza, a very cheap meal to make which when priced up in restaurants it can cost a lot of money. Drinks are expensive too, but the resturant is clean, tidy and served by happy staff, we have... More

I like Pizza Express restaurant. The Croydon Branch is nice, close to parking and public transport. The service was good but a bit slow. We had to wait a bit for the menu, starter, main and it was not busy. But I enjoyed it. I liked the wine what the waitress recommended, the food was well cooked and presented.

It's a pleasant enough place, the staff were very friendly and the pizza was very tasty but I did find it a bit strange when I asked for a four cheese pizza I was told that the menu had recently changed and now they only did 1 type of cheese, a bit odd for a pizza restaurant !
