“Colourful, friendly & tasty!”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

My friends & I have eating at Planet Pizza ever since it opened. It's a great mid week venue, especially on Monday & Tuesday - the buy-one-get-one-free nights. We go to the Gloucester Road restaurant & it's always colourful & friendly, there's local artists work on the walls which changes regularly & adds to the quirkiness of the place. They have a really tasty pizza menu, but Sun is our favourite. The only minor thing is that the pizzas aren't always cooked to a consistent standard & can be slightly more or less cooked than previous visits. But they are always really fresh & tasty. The salads are great too, especially the bacon & chorizo one, but we don't normally have room for them because the pizzas are really filling. We are loyal, regular customers & will remain that way!

“Consistently good”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

Always stuffed when I leave here, and sometimes I have had a really good pizza. Other times a touch disappointing on the pizza front. I think the bases are a bit cakey, a bit spongey. Doesn't really taste like proper pizza dough, which I would prefer. Toppings are fine, if a bit old-fashioned, and the salads are great. I do like visiting because the staff are so friendly and good, always welcoming to kids and families, with toys and crayons to play with,there is nice music and a buzzy atmosphere. The portions are large and that is a bonus, it is very good value. I think it was better though when they did draught pints of Hoegaarden.

“Really quite unpleasant”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

The pizza bases seemed to have been drenched in olive oil, and the toppings had little or no flavour. The food took a very long time to arrive, considering that a pizza, done properly, only takes a few minutes to cook (the place was virtually empty at the time, so it couldn't be due to pressure on the kitchen).

“Great little pizza pad”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

My friends and I ate at Planet Pizza on Gloucester Road last Saturday early evening. We were visiting the area prior to heading to a local pub for a friends 30th birthday, so we hadn't made a reservation (seems like a very popular place), but they managed to squeeze us in. No frills dining, but good value and a nice experience. Good selection of beers and wines, we had a bottle of viognier, which was delicious and the boys drank bottles of moretti. For starters we ordered the garlic dough balls and the bread and olives to share, which were generous portions and the olives were enormous! Large selection of pizzas named after planets, which were tasty and fresh. I personally prefer pizzas with a crispier & thinner base, but that's just my personal taste.

We didn't enjoy our experience when we first arrived because the door was open, so it was a bit chilly and there was also a large party of adults with their babies and small children on the table next to us being very loud, causing mayhem and left a complete mess for the staff to clean up after them. However, as soon as that party had left, their mess had been cleaned up, the doors were closed and lighting had been dimmed, the ambiance of this place dramatically changed for the better and we were able to enjoy the rest of our meal in a more civilised setting.

“Not what it was.”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

The pizzas are still good, but it seems like they have moved backwards slightly from where they were.

The starters used to be excellent and have now been discontinued. There service seems slower and more stretched.
