It would be quicker to catch a fish from the canal and cook it yourself! We started with no piccolo colouring entertainment for one of two children. Continued with the wrong starter being served for one of party of four. Waited a good 40 mins for service of children's food and 2 salad meals- of which one was incorrect. Chicken... More

I really struggled on what score to give. On one hand, the restaurant is nice - it's a light airy building on the quay with a good view and the service was really friendly and nice. The pizza was over done (I can't believe it was actually sent out it was so burnt) but I had waited ages and was... More

Good food great location. Service was slow especially for a half full restaurant. Make sure you have a voucher and you are laughing.

Visited for a family meal to celebrate a birthday. Got seated pretty quickly but had to ask to order drinks after a good 10 minutes. Had to ask again for water as they forgot. Starters arrived but garlic bread was on the verge of being bin-worthy as charred around the edges. Extremely long wait for mains which where apparently 2... More

It took approx 10-15 mins before we were asked what drinks we would like to order.Our mains was brought out after approx 20mins,after placing the order,and we mentioned we haven't had our starters. To which the food was taken away... More

Having lived in Italy and worked with Italian chefs I'm really fussy about a good pizza. Pizza Express is as near as you are going to get to an authentic Italian pizza. Pizza Express in Ipswich has good service and the place has a nice atmosphere.

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

We had booked a table for lunch on Sunday, just for 3, when booking they asked us to come slightly earlier which we did, have eaten here quite a few times, the setting is great and normally the service is good, but our drinks, then starters arrived, all very nice, but clearly they had several large tables to serve and...
