Ordered a couple of pizzas online - Romana Rusticella - the hubbys favourite for years now and a Classic American ie pepperoni, really tasty. (I'd usually go Classic Funghi but it's no longer on the menu, sadly.) Going to collect them around 6pm the usual 'family' crowd was in which creates a lovely atmosphere with the kids there. Wish they'd... More

Staff don't appear to be supported by management and try their best however service was slow even though not busy, communication became an issue at one point. Lack of smiles and poor customer service skills really stood out. If I was a member of the management team, I would see this as a huge risk. When my fellow diner asked... More

Sometimes, if they don't have enough ingredients, or the wrong ingredients, they'll just throw together some approximation of what you order, and expect you to not notice. They would rather serve up than 'fess up to having the wrong/ substandard ingredient. It could be down to lack of communication between kitchen and front of house, or it could be policy.... More

Myself and my family are regular visitors to Pizza Express, one of the reasons being that they are so accomodating with children. It is very popular though so always best to book. Staff often seem run off their feet during busy periods. The food is good if a little overpriced. Most of the time though i've had no complaints other... More

I visit Pizza Express Gosforth occasionally for an easy weeknight meal out, and the food is always great - hot, delicious, no surprises. Nothing spectacular, but they're not trying to be groundbreaking - just good pizza. The decor in the Gosforth restaurant has recently been updated, however I'm giving 3 stars rather than 4 or 5 as it seems that... More

The tables are a bit cramped together. Food is good. Service is ok but could seriously do with an injection of enthusiasm or even a smile!

Like a previous reviewer, we ordered two takeaway pizzas recently. We live in the area and were told to collect in 45 mins which we did and they were only lukewarm. They seemed to have them on the top of some of the equipment in the kitchen but maybe it was heated? It certainly wasn't heated enough and surely at... More

Ordered takeaway from here, it is all done online and you are given a pick up time, arrived 5 minutes before the time I was given and my pizza was sat on top of the pizza oven waiting for me and was stone cold by the time I got home (2 mins away). Fairly expensive so was disappointed, wouldn't bother... More

Visited after recent refurbishment. Pizzas tasted good (or as good as you can expect from a chain restaurant), but probably a couple of pounds per main course too expensive (but ok value with discount code or taste card). Service was friendly and efficient.

We were promptly shown to a table when we arrived on a busy Saturday evening. The staff were very pleasant and attentive and gave us time to choose our drinks and meals. Pizza Express is not cheap but the standards are usually very good and consistent , proving that you get what you pay for. Overall a nice meal.
