"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

Probably the best pizza in town. Good service and lots of mid week offers on. Don't think I've ever had a bad meal here.

The Pizza's are always very very good at Pizza Express and the staff helpful and friendly. The only downside to this restaurant is that the noise carries and to be honest if you want to hold a conversation with all the table...you cant, just the person next to you as the sound travels. It is such a shame as other... More

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

Standard Pizza Express food, being a chain, each restaurant is normally mainly distinguishable by only service and atmosphere/venue. This Pizza Express is let down by the venue itself - it does really feel like you are almost sat on top of the next table sometimes - you certainly couldn't have a private conversation here! The service itself was adequate -... 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
