Good food

I have been to this restaurant many times but unfortunately the service does not improve. One of the waiters is incredibly impatient and removes plates etc whilst others are still eating and on this occasion he took dessert orders while we ate our main course. He took our bill away before we had... read more

I'd had a £30 voucher to use at Pizza Express for nearly a year, it expired today so off we went for quick tea time treat. There was a children's party taking place but we were seated well away from the noise. Quite busy for a Thursday at 6pm. Drinks ordered nuts and olives nibbles were tasty. Then the 2... More

great service, met by attentive staff unlike our visit to Adriano's and they are great with kids. Its not cheap, apart from kids menu which is very reasonable, but food is tasty and doesn't work out too expensive if you have a voucher! you always know what you're getting with pizza express.

As a repeat customer of pizza express (my sisters are picky eaters)I find you get better service and a nicer meal all round at the jesmond pizza express branch. While the food is of an acceptable standard, it comes with a high price and other independent Italian restaurants in the surrounding area such as Basilico offer a better meal.

Went with family for lunch as we had a 3 year old with us and their kids menu is good - in fact that was the best value meal ! The adults pizzas were OK but nothing special and with very stingy amounts of toppings - certainly not worth the money. I had a Caesar salad which wasa nice fresh... More

This is a generic Pizza place, the food was OK, albeit a bit on the pricey side. Service was OK, but the staff hadn't a clue about the wine on offer. The Valpolicella was drinkable, but at £7+ a glass, not brilliant. That's it really.

You usually know what to expect with Pizza Express, and the Gosforth store does not let you down. There is always a good atmosphere. Went recently mid-week and there was enough buzz. The service was good and the food came quickly. Delicious all round. Go for a Romana pizza, so good!

What has happened since the referb?! I have been going here for nearly 13 years. Over the last 12 months the service is dire, the food burnt, delivered fragmented, portions reduced. Just dreadful. When, after 3 awful meals I had the audacity to complain!?!? As a good will gesture I was offered one pizza free (delivered after everyone else had... More

Took a chance at Adrianos with the kids but it was fully booked so we went over to Pizza Express on Gosforth High Street, Normally we would travel to the Jesmond restaurant as this one has been disappointing in the past. Great surprise, full refurb and some really helpful staff, total change. Will return as its in walking distance.
