Popped in early evening with a friend after a couple of pints in a local pub. Not eaten here before but have used Pizza express in other towns - with varying mostly negative experiences. Shown to seats quickly and also reseated when I found we were directly under the air conditioner - no problem. We both ordered pizzas but with... More

Going to Pizza Express you get good pizzas and good service. This was not different - very helpful waiter, good surroundings, nice background music, ah and the pizza was good. The salad was excellent too. The place looked spotless.

The mrs and I were in town recently and we visited here with my best mate and his wife for a spot of dinner. The food was nice, if a little oily, and the waitress was lovely. She was always smiling and interacting with us on each visit to the table. The only down side is that the restaurant is... More

I took my son and three other friends for a meal to celebrate his birthday. We all had lovely meals (which they usually are) but I wanted especially to praise Gosia for our amazing service. She was attentive and friendly and went out of her way to make sure the evening fun and rememberable. Thanks x

After along day at work and another jam on M1 it was nice to get home to the words 'Let's go out for dinner'. Popped down the road to Hitchin and walked into Pizza Express without a booking, it was heaving but the atmosphere was friendly. The staff here are great and Gosia in particular. Attentive but not in your... More

Exactly as you'd expect from a chain like this. Reliable, consistent and tasty. As soon as you decide to visit a chain like this you have effectively signed up for the standard choices. Here at Hitchin the service is quick and friendly and the food nicely prepared. Put it like this... If a visiting senior exec from Pizza Express popped... More
