The restaurant was fairly busy when we arrived and with the tables so close together it does feel rather claustrophobic and that the people next to you are part of your night out, rather uncomfortable. The drinks menu is very varied and makes a nice change. I had the pollo pesto which wasn't hot... read more

I haven't been to a Pizza Express for a while and I was really looking forward to going with the family. What a disappointment! Te waitress was foreign and struggled to understand us, which are ordering a bit of a battle. The pizzas must have gone healthy since I last visited, because the cheese was non existent. The same for... More

The food was brought out Luke warm and was very bland. The manager was not very friendly and basically expressed that he wasn't bothered about the service that was given to the customers. There was a large group of us and we was told we could not pay bills separately. This came to a massive confusion and was not professional... More

Always get great service and as a part Italian think that the pizzas are the best in town. Clean and a great atmosphere.

Visited with grown up family. Pizza Express has a great menu with quality food and good service, but the atmosphere is more motorway service station than comfortable restaurant. Noise is the worst problem; the building is cavernous and noise amplified, but since the refurb there is a constant scraping of chair legs on the floor , why not just put... More

I eat here all the time and have hardly ever had a bad experience. The food is always fantastic and the staff lovely. Anytime I've ever had a complaint they have fixed my issue immediately and with the friendliest manner. The restaurant is impeccable. Always find a voucher though :)

The problem with chain restaurants is that sometimes you can visit a bad one and it puts you off them all. This has been the case for me and it had been over a year since my last visit to any Pizza Express. However, the Hitchin branch however got everything spot on. Food was delicious, service was timely and friendly... More

Very enjoyable early evening meal for two. Tasty pizzas washed down by a very nice Prosecco ( free with a voucher code). Tasty desserts too ( even though I'm not usually a fan). Friendly and efficient service. Everything you'd expect from this chain delivered in pleasant modern surroundings.

Great service from tom. He was helpful and eager to impress. He was happy to get me extra sauce and glaze even though i asked him separately and made him walk across the restaurant twice. My girlfriend thinks he is lovely and bubbly.
