My family booked in here for 5.00pm as we had young grandchildren with us so we wanted to eat fairly early. It was quite obvious from the start that we were in for a long wait. There was a queue in the entrance lobby to be seated. We arrived at 4.58pm and were seated at 5.10pm. The staff gave us... More

Met here with family to grab some lunch and despite being half-term not at all busy. Knowing that the pizzas are large we skipped starters and just went for the main event with some polenta fries to accompany. All had different toppings but all arrived together and nicely cooked. As it was lunch time no alcohol consumed but the ginger... More

Had gone with kids in summer last year and waited over an for our food. Thought we'd give it a second chance; what a mistake. Our waiter was very helpful and friendly, but the food took forever, whilst waiting we had the pleasant view of peeling ceilings and worn furnishings.

I have been to many pizza expresses and have always been happy with the service and quality of the food. That is until I went to the Ipswich waterfront branch. The service was incredibly slow - it took over 2 hours to have our meal. We were even told by the staff that they didn't have enough staff to run... More

We ate here on bank holiday Monday and it was apparent that the staff had not been expecting such a big turnout. Having said that, they were run off their feet serving diners and were very attentive, all things considered. We were served relatively quickly and our drinks arrived promptly. We both ordered a Romana style pizza (thinner & crustier... More

Although the food is very nice, the waiting staff are often a little complacent. The restaurant can be very busy and therefore warm and loud which can make for an un relaxing evening! I would still return if I had a voucher for the meal or an invitation for a party, although I sadly I would not jump at it!... More

Visited this place with 4 other friends. Ordered starters and mains at the same time. After 45 minutes had to remind the waitress that we haven't received the food. Until then she did not even bother to check. Apparently, the order doesn't seem to have reached the kitchen! After a 20 minutes wait, received the mains as they totally lost... More

We had made a reservation online, we waited a good 5 minutes at the door before anyone even came up to speak to us, they were staff about but they obviously were to busy and chose to ignore us. We were not able to have the Pollo Pesto as the restaurant had run out of the sauces to make the... More
