We ordered 3 pizzas and 2 pasta dishes. The bolognese turned up with many burnt pieces, something never experienced having ordered a number of spaghetti bolognese meals from various restaurants. We spoke to a member of staff who claimed that this was 'normal' as the food had to be heated to 75 degrees, no apology was made at this point.... More

This pizza express is in gunwharf quays. The location is good and the view of the harbour and the boats excellent. It's a typical pizza express. Service was efficient. Food was good.

My wife and I visited this establishment on a Tuesday about 3pm so it was very quiet. We ordered, to share, the garlic bread, a large pizza which on the attached card showed loads of pulled beef. We also had a salad and polenta chips. So, very quiet, about another three couples eating. However this didn't stop the pizza turning... More

Went here for a late business lunch. Restaurant wasn't busy but took 5 minutes to be sat at table. Waiter took our order then went and cooked the pizza, never had that before. Olives never made it to our table at all. Decided to end there and not even look at the dessert menu. Wouldn't recommend I'm sure there are... More

A great place for sitting outside on the waterfront. Food and service were excellent. Students get a 20% discount with and NUS Extra card. Really good value.

Service excellent and it was so nice to have a helpful and extremely friendly person serving you and talking to you. Food was... More

Very clean fresh and airy restaurant. Staff are a bit precious about their tables and where you can and cant sit. The 'manager' was dressed down for the evening and didnt really seem to care at all about smiling or the service he was giving. We came here because it was my 20yr olds birthday and he loves pizza -... More

Credit where credit is due, the service was brilliant. Our waitress was attentive despite being busy and didn't bat an eyelid at slight alterations to suit the children. Food is your standard Pizza Express menu. Who doesn't love the dough balls?! All of our food was served in good time and piping hot. There doesn't seem to be as many... More

We recently visited this restaurant to celebrate our anniversary during a weekend away. I had emailed in advance to let the know it was our anniversary and asked if we could have a more private table. They emailed back really fast and suggested a seat in their conservatory area with views overlooking the harbour, which sounded great! On arrival the... More

Service was fine,no complaints there very friendly and helpful.starters would get four stars as would the desserts but the pizzas were the downfall of this visit( yuk).the "hawaiian pizza" I had was the hottest of that variety I have ever tasted as was my wife's plain cheese and tomato pizza,don't think I would use again personally.
