Visited Pizza Express this evening with two granddaughters. Service was dreadful. The waiter was too busy holding conversations with his colleagues. My husband ordered the chicken pasta and was served the Bolognese and the youngest member of the party had to wait for her pizza which did not arrive with the other three dishes. Would not go back.

What a great venue to have a restaurant and it should be a place to visit ... sadly - not, if they continue like they did the other day. Actually booked for 7pm as they had an offer on and it was 2 for 1. Arrived on time and waited and waited and waited to be spoken too - however,... More

Went in here after walking along the Quay. The service was awful, not the waitresses fault, but the chef's!! He was traing 3 "new" people, so they say and had ran out of food. The first order we gave they didn't have anymore, which we had waited 35 minutes to be told this, then chose again and waited another 25... More

Good was really good, the thin based pizza is excellent though the side dishes let the overall meal down. The waitress was excellent, very positive and engaging

I have to say I was so disappointed with this visit. As a family we have visited this pizza express several times and always found it to be popular, so appreciate the wait for food. Unfortunately on this occasion service was awful, slow and the food was just ok and to top off the start to a bad experience, I... More

I was out with 3 friends for a birthday and we decided to sit outside as it was a lovely (fairly windy) day. The table was not set, which is fine... but the waiter came to give us menu's and did not set it. We ordered our drinks, stating that since it was one of our birthdays we get that... More

The food is always consistent in Pizza Express - as it was on this occasion. The staff were having a 'mare... Turned out that the manager had walked out that afternoon, leaving a lack of leadership in the restaurant. I arrived, a sole diner, at 8pm. My food finally arrived at 8:45pm. A shame, as the staff that were present... More

We went on a Thursday evening at opening time so it was empty but started to full during our visit. I went for the Florentina classic pizza which was very nice. The staff were very friendly and attentive. I will be returning.
