There were overwhelmed by their success that day, but the staff was nevertheless very friendly and did not show any signs of inpatience. Pizzas were as you expect from a Pizza Express and the kids liked th place. So ll fine

Always reliable for a decent lunch/dinner. Very busy on bank holidays but the staff coped well. Download the vouchercloud app for your phone to ensure the best deals. Only points would be to sort the toilets out - stinking.

It was a boiling hot day and we needed lunch in Gunwharf Quays. Pizza seemed right. As soon as we sat down we were presented with a large jug of iced water and two glasses. That in itself made our visit perfect. The pizzas and salad were great and the service exemplary. We will return.

Packed!!! - the sun was out and it was the start of the bank holiday weekend so what else should I have expected. We had been visiting the nearby Portsmouth Historic dockyard (excellent by the way). We had taken the Sea Cat harbour tour and it conveniently dropped us off at the Gunwharf directly adjacent to where the Pizza Express... More

Who in their right mind would pay full price for a pizza express?! Thankfully we didn't and if I hadn't had vouchers I would have been complaining. Barely any topping but waitress service was good and we were looked after. Just not a lot going on top of our pizzas! Everything else was fine just nothing exciting to say just... More

This is one of my favourite family friendly places in Portsmouth. The combination of the great Pizza Express menu and the location should be enough to satisfy anyone. But the service here is always so good! Kids are respected as "proper" customers, and if you dine al fresco, your dog is welcome and also treated to his own bowl of... More

Over the... More

Visited yesterday for lunch, was greeted by very friendly member of staff who found us a table immediately and gave us the menu. She returned a few minutes later and took our drinks order, which took a good 10 minutes to get to our table (2 glasses of wine and water). We hen placed our food order as one member... More

Came here last night with the family. Firstly the staff member who served is had excellent customer service skills and for those alone I'd give top marks for. However there were ragged edges. We ordered bolognese for my daughter. When the food came out two of the pasta shells were burnt to a cinder and they stuck out of the... More

Traditional Pizza Express quality and taste. Not the best pizza ever, but acceptable. It offers a nice outside area with sea view.
