Went for a family meal. Was not offered a drink while waiting until I asked. Food was not all that. It was very cold in there. Was always far from cheap so I will not being going back.

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

Visit often especially before or after going to see a film. Never had a bad meal although it can be noisy when there are a lot of children in there. Location good not quite in centre of City but as I say handy for cinema.

I have never had a pizza with such a spares topping before going to pizza express, I have never seen onions cut as thin as hairs before! Quite clever really, but not if you are paying as much as they charge for so little, after all, a pizza is all about the topping, but not here, you can buy a... More

Great lunch with friends. Everyone liked their pizza and dough balls. The atmosphere is vibrant sometimes hard to get a table though. Nice food and staff get food to groups quickly.

If you are looking for good service - try somewhere else. We booked fine on-line; arrived and were seated by a pleasant man, from then on however, were served when she could be bothered by Lorretta. We had to ask for every little thing we wanted, were never offered any pepper, parmesan, napkins, extra drinks, etc. My daughter's pizza (Florentina)... More

I've visited this restaurant a number of times over the years and unfortunately it can be a bit hit and miss. On this occasion we arrived to be told that a table of three would not be available for 30mins at least. We agreed to wait and then a table was available almost instantly. It made me wonder if we...

You get what you expect, a tasty pizza! Dough balls are always delicious but such different sizes! We waited along time between stater and main which when it arrived was very nice. Nice for a quick bite or a longer meal with friends.

Thank Lulabelle C
