Sorry guys but you've lost it. We used to be regular customers but haven't been for a while. Mixed meat shared platters very good..... but the pizzas?? Not good. Warm at best. Dried out. Tough and really not nice. It'll be a while.

Came here as my usual pizzeria was quite busy and this one was nearby. It was almost full to capacity on a Thursday night so I was expectant of good food. None of the pizzas stood out for me so I decided to try the calamari and polenta fries. I finished neither. To fill me up I got salted caramel... More

This was a franchised restaurant at its very heart. No soul, crap service, and so poor compared to other pizza express restaurants we have visited. Avoid at all cost! Lazy service and dirty premises made this a disgusting experience.

Me and my husband had dinner here on Sunday at the Lisburn Road branch. They were doing a deal of a starter and main for £9.95. I had the buffalo mozzarella and tomato salad followed by the pollo pesto both of which u couldn't fault. I booked our table online for 18:15 which I would recommend doing as it was... More

Just had a lovely pizza in Pizza Express, Bedford street. Went on spec & had to wait forty five minutes for a table, (for two!) Always busy restaurant's. But when you get a table the service is quick & friendly. They always give you great offers if you visit their web site. They give you a bottle of wine or... More

I've been to Pizza express a few times before but was always the one near the town centre. Tried this one for the first time & just didn't really like it at all. For a start it was just too busy. This would be okay if the tables weren't so close together, but you're nearly falling over people trying to... More

£20 for an incredibly thin pizza with a thimble of chicken an a glass of cheap wine is ridiculous! Basically Pizza Hut with inflated prices and an overpriced wine list.

Had a reservation for the restaurant, we were pointed by the supervisor to a table, not even brought to it. A staff member then told us the table was reserved, and asked us to move, even though the table was reserved for us. We moved to the other table, then the staff member said we could have the original table,... More

Went for a pizza and it took quite a while to be served, the waitress did apologise for this though and we ordered. Got the wrong starter so it was free, pizza was fine but could have had more topping in my opinion for the price. We saw one waitress (Hannah) working really hard she never stopped, whilst others seemed... More
