“Nice lunch place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014 via mobile

Dropped by for lunch. It was a nice quite place and not too busy. Enjoyed the relaxing soft music while watching the hustling traffic pass. Our waiter was not the best, but his coworker seen and bent over backwards to help us.

“Slow service with mediocre food.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014

The manager seating us had an attitude and we had to wait some for our waitress to finally come over. The food was just ok. We went to the restaurant of George IV St. Maybe one of the other locations is better.

“Good food & service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2014

Good service, friendly staff & the usual quality pizzas you expect from Pizza Express. The restaurant is handy for both Princes Street & the Royal Mile and has a nice interior. The waitress was very helpful with swapping toppings and so on & offered to pack up our daughter's pudding which she was too full for, something that we've never been offered at Pizza Express before.

“Disappointing service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

Booked a table online. Guy asked for the name which I told him and he tried to say we hadn't booked and they were very busy. I pointed out the name on his list. He then put us at a table right at the back so they could forget about us! I had my niece - no kids menu was offered and we waited a long time for food. The food and drink was lovely so credit to the kitchen. Just the service wasn't the best - perhaps it's better if they aren't busy ?

“Better pizza than Italy!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2014

After a show at the cinema my partner and I decided to pop in to pizza express on northbridge on our way home. Despite the fact that the restaurant was almost packed to the gunnels, we were greeted at the door by I presume a manager, with a smile from ear to ear!

It was a shock to read earlier reviews, as our experience was far from that. Considering it was a Friday night, and we had not booked yet they had about 3 large parties in there, the service was fast and efficient.

The manager sat us as asked if we would like something to drink while we perused the menu. The drinks arrived within only a matter of minutes. A lovely waitress came with them and asked if we would like to order something to nibble while we decided, we ordered some olives. When she came back with these, we ordered our meal. We were sat next to a large party, who by the looks of it hadnt got they're food yet, so we thought there could be a bit of a wait. This didn't bother me too much as it was Friday and the place was rammed. However to our surprise, the big table received they're food, then a couple of minute later, out started were brought over by a very enthusiastic waiter. I hear his name was Richie as he was talking to a table next to us.

Our starter plate were then cleared, we got offered some more drinks, then out main course arrived within 10 minutes of out plates being cleared!! Friday night, rammed place! We asked our waitress her name and where she was from as she made some time to talk with us. I would like to say, what an asset Veronika is to that restaurant. Very genuine.

We declined dessert, even though she did try to tempt us with a mini one. It was all a bit too much!

Really a fantastic Friday night, made better by a wonderful experience at this pizza express. I would most certainly recommend and I will return.
