My second visit and a much better one. Not that I think its improved as a result of my last reveiw!! I stuck to a pizza this time and thoroughly enjoyed it. My concern is the costs. For the cost items of a pizzas ingredients and the £11 70 charged I thought it was dear. A small salad £3.85 which... More

We dropped in at 9.45ish Monday evening, not realising they closed soon. The waiter was so polite friendly, and took us too our table . He took drinks order and left us too look and choose from menu. Pizza is not something we eat regularly, but we were running out of options as everything in Kendal seems too stop serving... More

This is one of the best examples of the eponymous chain that I have visited. The food is consistently good, the staff, delightful and the restaurant, bright and comfortable. Today's meal of mozzarella and tomato salad, followed by lasagne hit the spot. Really nicely prepared and presented and full of flavour. Excellent value too.

Called in on the off chance of a table. We were seated and left with the menus 15 minutes later our order was taken. We then waited for what seemed like ages before our dough ball starter arrived. It was very nice and settled the now fractious kids. We then had another long wait for our mains. They were really... More

Rather than wait in the queues on the M6 I decided to drop into the Kendal branch of Pizza Express. The restaurant was nicely busy with families and couples. Even so service was prompt and attentive. The food, usual Pizza Express, good.

This is a great example of what a pizza express restaurant should be. My wife and I have been many times and are always happy with the quality of food and the speed by which it is served. There are a lot of tables packed into a small space, but this somehow never feels to imposing as the staff are... More

Called in for a late lunch with the missus. It was quiet and we were conducted straight to a table. Choice of pizza or pasta and we plumped for pizza and a wine/beer. Freshly baked and delivered to table piping hot. I don't like P Express policy of absorbing tips added to the card so give any tip in cash... More

I love the chain. Have for decades. The only reason I'm giving an average rating is that the room itself is very open plan and ergo can be rather noisy.

We ate here on a busy Saturday night. It was the first time we have tried Pizza Express. The food was good but we were particularly impressed by the manager and the way he pulled his team together to provide excellent service.

Visited on Wed 1st June. Being half term, it was very busy. However, we had booked, and after a very short wait for our table the staff did a great job. We had a really good meal, and the Tesco vouchers made it very reasonable !
