I always enjoy the experience of eating at Pizza Express. This was my first visit to this particular restaurant and I found the food and service to be good, upto the consistent standard of other Pizza Express restaurants I have dined at.

We normally go pizza express whenever we are out as my daughter loves it. But the last three times we have been.... Service has been really slow. Orders are not taken correctly. The last visit was the final straw. My daughter can't have mushrooms. She gets very ill. So we asked for the children's pasta without mushrooms. It came with... More

King Street in Leicester is in the heart of the city and is now home to a new branch of Pizza Express. We visited on a sunny Thursday afternoon and joined 2 other tables of diners. The restaurant is light and airy and it was nice to have a window seat so we could watch the world go by. Our... More

Really nice to try a different branch as i'm used to going to the Highcross branch. This one was small but so friendly. Staff were great, very attentive but also left us alone to chat and eat at our own leisure. There were four in our party; two of us arrived 15 mins before our booked time but they seated... More

Came for my first visit Saturday evening with a large group friends, 33 of us in total! I must say the staff coped incredibly. I'm still a little confused as to how they managed to bring out all our meals together and piping hot, I've been to many places with much smaller groups who haven't managed to achieve this!! I...

Visited after work prior to going to the theatre. We both knew what we wanted to eat as had recently been impressed with the same dishes in St Ives branch. Whoops, this time the food want as good. The bread that came with the antipasta starter was very crisp and burnt around the edges. The portion size for the cheese... More

Pizza Express is not as ubiquitous as say Macdonalds but there's still quite a few of 'em, 4 in Leicester alone. This does not mean however that they provide a similar experience. Take the King Steet branch for example especially following a Tigers' game and especially when the Tigers have had a thumping win. Cashing in on the bonus offered... More

We always choose this Pizza Express because it's nearer to the pubs we drink in like the Slug and Lettuce and is much quieter than the one in High Cross. Been coming here for years and we really like the ambiance of the place too. Almost always can walk in and get a table, even at the weekend. Service was... More
