Just returned from lunch at Pizza Express on the Quay. Beautiful sunny day, great location ruined by awful food and lousy service. We only ordered drinks and a main course, just as well, as we were waiting 1 hour and 20 minutes before the food arrived. The waitress got the drinks order wrong to start with, but this was quickly... More

Great location right on waterfront and not too far from town centre. Outside seating area and typical Pizza Express fare

Kitchen staff called out our food but ALL waiting staff hung around the till & didn't move. After over 5 minutes the kitchen staff brought our cold pizzas over. No one asked if they were OK so out of hunger we ate them. Still no one has cleared our table, I have downloaded this app, read other reviews & written... More

Serving staff were polite and efficient, but we had to wait over an hour for our food, after we had ordered.

Lunchtime visit with husband and 3 boys, had a 25% off voucher (never pay full price at Pizza Express!) we all had a nice lunch, service was quick and with a smile. We were bought a jug of water straight away, which I thought was really good! 2 Little ones ate from the Piccolo menu, 3 courses for £6.95, great... More

Some staff Ok, but some impolite (another customer asked if they were open, the response was " do we look like... More

My friends and I had decided to have a meal at Pizza Express last night before watching the Firework Display - we called earlier in the week to book, to be told no tables were being reserved due to the Regatta being held - which was fair enough. On arrival I noted at least 4 tables on the outside terrace... More

Visited Pizza Express on the Quay tonight for a quick bite to eat before the fireworks as part of the Waterfront Celebrations. I understand it was particularly busy because of this but I feel that isn't an excuse for how poor the service was. We had to wait 10-15 minutes for a table which was fine. Once we were seated...
