Decent Enough Pizza Express

Standard Pizza Express food, being a chain, each restaurant is normally mainly distinguishable by only service and atmosphere/venue.

My husband and I visited our local pizza express on Saturday, arriving at 11.45 to have an early lunch with our two kids (2 and 4). We asked the person in charge of seating if we could have a booth with a curved sofa because we can sit our kids between us and this makes it easy to manage them... More

Stopped in for dinner whilst away with work. Was very impressed with the attentiveness of the staff and the quality of the food served. The only thing that let it down was a 660ml bottle of beer costing £6.80, that's £5.84 a pint!!!!!!!!

I went here for a meal with my family on Friday evening (5 adults & 3 children) the food was nice, the staff accommodated me as my favourite pizza is no longer featured on the menu and the girls waiting on us were attentive enough considering it was a Friday evening. The kitchen staff were also on their game as... More

Wait staff are really friendly. Place was really busy and this did not effect the service. Normally I do not like going to chains. But I would go here again.

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 enough and very bland. The waitress... 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.
