“Quick service and good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2014

If you want a no frills light meal in pleasant surroundings in the heart of the city - try this. We were in a bit of a hurry but enjoyed the leggera pizza. Service was excellent and gave us time for a dessert and coffee.

“Ok but average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2014

Ate here with 2 young children, was ok but service a bit slow. Food not the best at a pizza express, salad a bit limp and boring. Could be better.

“Forgetting everything!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2014

I went for a meal with my family. One of us is gluten free. I had to ask twice about the gluten free options for my niece. She ordered a side of garlic butter which we had to ask twice.

My starter was forgotten, my main was late and my desert was also forgotten. I used to enjoy pizza express and it is a lovely venue but the staff are just awful. To top it all off they charged me extra for something I didn't have.

I will not return and wouldn't not recommend it so anyone.

“Pleasant but not over Impressed”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2014

A nice location but unfortunately I thought the food was only average. The pizzas that we had were OK but were not over generous with the toppings. The staff seemed friendly enough, but let themselves down when they forgot one of our deserts and then had to be reminded twice before we eventually received it.
Overall, I thought it was overpriced especially the alcohol.
