Could be better?

I've always enjoyed my visits to Pizza Express, alway good service and reasonably good pizzas. Last week I visited with my partner and chose the Padana. The topping was great, but was seriously let down by the base. This was undercooked, even doughy, but also the pizzas aren't stone baked. They... read more

We went in for lunch, it was quite noisy with young kids as it was the school holidays, there's something about the hollowness of the space that makes everything seem louder. Anyway, ordered two pizzas and after an ok amount of time they both arrived burnt, explained to the waitress she was ok and said there was no problem and... More

We came here on a Sunday Evening, around 5.45pm and got a lovely welcome from the waitress. Sat down and daughter got her colouring pencils and menu to colour in. Then we got our order taken and then the food came, The only problem was they got my salad wrong-as asked for no Anchovies and I had them on there,... More

"Couldn't be bothered" member of staff, quite rude in her manner towards a number of us, got the order wrong twice, made our party of 8 people feel quite on edge, and therefore spoiled our meal out. Food very average. Won't go back in a hurry. Lots of nicer places to eat in Hitchin.

I left a review a little while back, and my overall feelings haven't changed - the food is still decent and it's a good value meal out. Last night I visited for a pizza with my other half. Upon bringing the pizza over, the lady (who I think was probably the manager or similar) informed us that they'd unfortunately overcooked... More

My husband and I turned up for pizza on a wednesday night. Waited for 10 minutes and not a single waiter came up to talk to us or seat us - even though we caught the eye of several. Place was busy but there were several empty tables ready. Shocking customer service. Shame, as the food looked nice, but we... More
