“Crazy priced drinks but good food & service”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

2 of us ate here for lunch yesterday. Turned up up without booking at 1:15pm and got the last table. Despite being off the main street it's always busy. Just had a pizza each and a drink. Nice food and good service but still crazy priced drinks - almost £5 for a beer or small wine. Always use Tesco clubcard vouchers so a great deal - wouldn't go for a boozy meal though!

“Great food as usual”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

This one is just an average Pizza Express - in other words, it's excellent. Good surroundings and an airy, pleasant atmosphere. And of course the food is great.

“Hidden Treasure with Excellent Healthy Options..!”
Reviewed May 6, 2013

This was our first visit back to a Pizza Express for number of years and the food has improved so much, my partner and I were looking at some healthy options and Pizza Express really fitted the bill, the location is hidden away just off the main Chester centre but easily reached.

We visited on the Saturday of the May bank holiday weekend and fortunately for us had not booked anything in Chester; luckily for us we managed to book a table in the morning and when we arrived the restaurant was full, but thanks to the lovely manageress we were shown to our table with a lovely window facing view to the front, we love people watching so this was a treat.

My partner had a Padana Leggera Pizza and I ordered a Pollo ad Astra Leggera Pizza and a Leggera Superfood Salad which we both shared, all we can say is thank-you for such a lovely tasty and healthy option meal, thoroughly recommend to anyone looking for a healthy tasty option meal and it was so filling as well.

We are already booking our next visit to our local Pizza Express establishment, also would like to say to other established restaurant chains, take note.

“Hidden Away”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

For some very strange reason it took Pizza Express an absolute age to get a restaurant in the wonderful City of Chester and even then it has tucked it away down a side street - why?
Anyway away from this we have visited this restaurant on various occasions and have always found it to be clean, tidy with good service. The food is as you would expect and if you have ever eaten at a Pizza Express you will know what I mean - simply good food at reasonable prices.
As a family we have many dietary problems, the great thing is that PE always rise to the challenge and have never let us down. As you would expect there are many places to eat within the City but Pizza Express will not let you down, an over used expression is that "it does what it says on the tin" in this case it is absolutely true. So what are you waiting for - Enjoy!!
