“Expensive pizza !!!? Worth it...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

The food is fresh the bake perfect and the taste is fantastic. Pizza Express is no Pizza Hut, why pay £12 for a pizza, well go online and get a discount voucher, second main for £2.50 (recommend the large thin and crispy, big but light). I have only gone for late lunches which are perfect for a change from the Pub menu or national chain, wine is expensive but good and if you over order you can dogie bag. The Bolton site is basic but classy for an afternoon lunch the staff are good and it has a Parisian Cafe feel, wood floor marble and a little cold, it's about the food.

“Average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

Decor is dated! Thought pizza express would be more modern, the food is lovely though, doughballs are worth a try.

“Poor service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012 via mobile

Got to this pizza express for Sunday lunch, no one there to see you to a table, had to try & find a waiter.

Once found she took order for starters & mains, starter came out in a decent time. She did try & memorise the order, untill she realised she couldnt & then decided to go & get a napkin to right the order down on, joke. After that went down hill took almost 30 mins from her clearing the starters dishes to bring the mains out. Surprising as there was only a few other people in the restaurant. Joke.

Worse still the waiter took forever to come & clear the table up & take payment.

Won't be recommending this to any of my friends & family any time soon....

“You know what you are going to get but this is different !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012 via mobile

Yes it is a national chain and I have tried Leeds (x2) Manchester (x2) Durham , Aberdeen, Plymouth and Wakefield
The food is the same in all- good quality, fresh and way above that of another national pizza chain.
This is the first time I've reviewed pizza express but the extra mile the Bolton staff go the extra mile- well done!
