We (wife and son 8) came to St Ives for the weekend, staying at one of the better hotels, and ended up at Pizza Express as the meal offered at the hotel was inedible, -so last minuute dash to town on a Friday night. We considered Pizza was always a safe bet, and of course a particular favorite with our son. This Pizza Express is in a prime sea front position (used to be Woolworths?) so it was a pleasant suprise to be seated immediately and not to be wallowing in previous diners left overs on the floor. The place was very clean, and the staff appeared to be very efficient and professional (in spite of the young age of the kitchen staff) The layout off the restuarant was modern and friendly.
The menu for our son was perfect with dough balls, pizza, and fudge cake -good value childrens menu.
My wife and I decided we were no longer that hungry and decided to share a 3 course special. This was of no issue wih the waitress, and provided extra plates to accomodate our request.
The food was very tasty, served hot, and fulfilling and good value.
Overall we were so impressed with the service etc, that we decided to eat there again on our second night
The only reason not to give 5 stars was - although we had the same waitress as previously, some of the other staff did not appear to be as professional or efficient, and spent time chatting rather than attending to service However the food was just as good, and we will return.
