Very good service. Excellent pizza. Good for all the family. Parking isn't good as on the high street but paid parking around the corner.

“Very good meal, check promotions before booking”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

Booked a table for 5 online and took advantage of the promotions available. Meal was very nice, super efficient service although it was rather quiet and not many in there.
Very pleased

“Food as expected, service as bad as ever”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

What can you say about Pizza Express in Banbury? The food is as you would expect (good, consistent and enjoyable). It's the service in this place that's the problem. It is poor, and always has been. Every time I go, I hope it will be better, but it never is. I'm guessing the issue is high staff turnover / lack of training. The usual issues: not seated quickly enough, too long until drinks orders are taken, tables not cleared after starter until main course arrives, slow on desserts / coffees. Simple stuff, but clearly beyond this particular Pizza Express. Last night was the last time: next time I'll go to Bicester.

“Treat for Mother”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Dined here on an Orange Wednesday (BOGOF). Went early to avoid the rush. Had the lovely dough balls to start and chose the Leggera Pollo ad Astra and got Caprissiosa free. Love the Leggera range I manage to eat the whole pizza with it being a thinner crust and a hole filled with rocket without feeling stuffed. My mothers pizza was a bit on the salty side due the fillings (anchovies/ham hock/capers/olives). The waitress Holly was very pleasent and efficient.
