“pizza express”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2013

Food was good, pizzas a little thin but had to take my glass back twice for having lipstick marks on it! Not really a major problem but food was quick and tastey, nice night out for a family.

“Outstanding service, again”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2013

This we walked by during a busy lunchtime and we hesitated before going in. This place we know but we sometimes see other good venues drop their service standard when they are busy.

We need not have been concerned.

The level of service we saw really was impressive and delivered with a good humour throughout. We were served quickly and saw others getting the same high level of service.

The floor and kitchen staff worked at full throttle but they seemed to take it in their stride with their good humoured approach.

It is a chain restaurant but standards are not universal, here they made an effort and it showed in the food and service. We know of another restaurant of this same chain a number of miles away that had to close because it would not bother with food or service standards so it is good to visit a place where a high standard is maintained in all things.

Happy to go back and happy to recommend but it does not need my recommendation as the number of customers using this restaurant demonstrate.

“Can not fault !!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2013

always my first place to eat when i am near by!

Waiter's in this branch are always helpful, enthusiastic, quick and very friendly!!

Never had a bad meal in there, would recommend the chicken salad, freshly cooked in front of you and fast service

They should invest in a loyalty system, would help me out alot!!

“EXCELLENT WAITRESS”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

I should know her name by now ... must remember next visit. This is a great Pizza Express that always serves up great Pizzas, but a reall bonus is the regular waitress who seems to have worked here since it opened ! Always smiling and helpful, just adds to the experience.
Looks as though we've been lucky not to encounter moody Carl !!!!

“Restaurant needs investment but service and food are great”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2013

As regular visitors I'm always impressed by the value for money offered by Pizza Express. The food's often as good as you find at far more expensive ITalian restaurants. Service can be hit and miss but is always very friendly.

One complaint. For such a busy restaurant in as affluent an area as Loughton I'm surprised this hasn't been upgraded like some of the Pizza Express restaurants around. The interior's a bit tired-looking now having not really been refurbished since it opened.
