“Prepared to wait 45mins or more? then Pizza Express is for you”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

Perhaps you should not go to the Finchley Road branch (just outside the station), The appaling wait made me feel like just walking out of the restaurant. Staff are very unhelpful, no smile nor courtesy. I don't advise anyone to eat at this particular branch. My stomach almost ate itself for the long wait!

“Pizza Express is heading downhill”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2012

Having not been to Pizza Express for a couple of years, I was dismayed at what it has turned into. Gone is the smooth, comfortable interiors replaced by garish blues and what appears to be an attempt to turn it into a pseudo Pizza-Hut family restaurant. The pizzas were once refined and unique; now they taste no different to their cheaper competitors. My son's children's meal of Spaghetti bolognaise was not spaghetti at all but some horrible spiral pasta which had been baked with the mince. The tops of the pasta shells were burnt and dry. And you would need a microscope to find any mince! The only redeeming feature of our visit was that the service was friendly and engaging. Apart from that, we won't be returning to Pizza Express in a long time.

“Consistently good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2012

Have visited PizzaExpress in Loughton many times and the food and service is always good. We often use Tesco clubcard vouchers but find the drinks are a little pricey.
