Been eating here for years, it never disappoints. Love the voucher offers 💟 Garlic dough balls!!! Pepperone pizza with or without the hot is my fave. Now the menu has expanded its made it difficult to choose. All the dishes are fab, salads are so fresh and consistently good. The wines, especially Pino Grigio are always excellent. No need to...

Moved table to accommodate and nice staff but dirty cutlery at the table not good. Food was slow coming and wasn't busy but at least cooked fresh. Food was better than I remembered and pizzas had good lot of topping. Great you can use vouchers too.

What a disappointing experience we went to celebrate my granddaughters birthday The food was just ok- nothing special it was expensive for very little and the staff could not have cared less The venue had no atmosphere it is really no surprise that the place was almost empty Better value and better food available nearby Won't be going back

Visited today at lunchtime. Service very slow, despite not being that busy. When it arrived food was very disappointing. Pollo salad and penne bolognaise at £10.95 each were not good value for money. With several new restaurants opening in Chelmsford Pizza Express really need to raise their game.

The Kalamari starter was a bit disappointing, however the new "Dough Ball Doppio" was a hit. The Romana pizzas are the best; thin, crispy; great toppings but make sure you're hungry as they are huge! Make sure you take advantage of any special offers by signing up by email to receive latest deals. Today I saved £33 with 2 for... More

Popped in for a late lunch on a Monday afternoon. We weren't greeted at the door, just asked whether we had read the sign on the door. No we hadn't. Said note was pointed out and we were told that it was cash payments only today. Fine. We were given a table. And we waited and waited. The baby on... More

Visited here for birthday lunch with Wife and Mum. Bit aprehensive at first as mum in wheelchair and steps up into restaurant. However waitress soon came out and put down special metal ramps allowing wheelchair access. We had a brilliant lunch with attentive service and good food topped by an impromptu birthday cake at the end !!

The friend who I was meeting with booked the table the day before for 6:15. I was first to arrive there at 6:00 and advised the waitress that we had a booking for 6:15 under my friends name. She advised me that there was no booking and that she could only just squeeze us in. My friend arrived, we ordered... More

The atmosphere here is one of the worst I have ever experienced. I felt I couldn't relax and enjoy my meal with the family as I usually would at restaurants. There was literally no ambience. It was odd as usually between meals we would all talk and time would fly by, but because the atmosphere was so cold we just... More
