It's a decent chain restaurant, the food is good with service to match. Maybe it's a bit misleading to give this restaurant a 'very good' label. I think 'good' with a score of 3.5/5 would be more accurate. It's a reliable choice and you know what you are getting. Please somebody fix those lights on the outside of the building!

Came this week and was happy overall. Waitress was a bit abrupt at times, but the rest of the serving staff were smiling and happy. Mains were both really nice, pizza was good, and I had pasta, unfortunately it wasn't as hot as it could have been, but I couldn't get anyone's attention, so I ate it as it was.... More

This is one of our local haunts and we visit pretty regularly. It's usually a weekend lunch while out shopping. Our favourite waitress (Wendy) can almost order for us now, as she knows us so well. Okay, this is a family restaurant and maybe not the place where we'd go for a romantic night out, but it meets some of... More

Dreadful pizza - burnt on top, solid cheese and base which I couldn't cut through. In spite of complaining, was still hit with a bill for an uneaten meal. Both of our pizza bottoms were covered with tiny bits of burnt food - obviously the oven has not been cleaned in some time. Will never ever return.

Pizza Express in Hitchin always serve good fresh meals at reasonable prices. The seating arrangements are good and the staff very friendly. It is not the place to go to very regularly, not in our case anyway, but more as an occasional treat. For that purpose it always delivers.

For my visit, the service was attentive - by both server and manager - and the food was good. Nice options for GF eating. It's pizza - above average in creativity for being, well, pizza. The venue was a bit loud; there's little sound absorption while families celebrate birthdays, that sort of thing. So I wouldn't recommend it for a... More

Food here may be good but I'll never know. I went with my wife on Sunday at 1.15 and queued to be seated behind another couple. They walked out saying 'this place is a disgrace'. I thought that maybe they were being a little impatient so we waited. And waited and waited. There were tables available but not one of... More
