“Underwhelming.”
Reviewed April 29, 2014 via mobile

Just arrived in London and we walked past this pizza restaurant, lots of people and the pizza people ordered looked rather decent. We ordered the four seasons classic crust and polenta chips but they were out of polenta chips. When we got it I was speechless - the least amount of topping I've ever seen. I needed a microscope to see the little pepperoni and few olives scattered here and there. Also only a quarter of the pizza had cheese on it. Obviously the other three seasons didn't produce cheese!

“If your face fits”
Reviewed February 27, 2014

Went in for a meal with friends. It was clearly busy and was told that it would be a 10min wait. 10mins if you were us. We asked for the empty booth and was told by the attitude filled manageress that it was reserved but the group that came in after were seated there, they hadn't booked. When we asked for a table that wasn't near the door we were told they were reserved too. The table we had didn't have cutlery and after 3 other groups were seated they remembered we were there. Ishmal, the waiter was the only saving grace.Pizza Express restaurants are everywhere, give this one really wide berth if you want to have a good evening.

“Not a great experience”
Reviewed February 23, 2014

This is now the second time I have eaten at this particular Pizza Express and both times have been a disappointment. The first time we left early as the service and food was so poor and last time there was a problem with the till and so orders weren't getting to the kitchen - in consequence I waited nearly 30 minutes for my pizza, as did other diners around me. To be fair the staff were very apologetic and did keep trying to reassure us all that our food was on its way. this is a very busy branch and because of the holdup with the till by the time I left the queue was half way down Euston Road - I can only imagine how long people were having to wait to be seated. The food was the same as always, and as always the wine by the glass is extortionate. Have had better food and service in Giraffe.

“If you're hankerin' for some Pizza...”
Reviewed February 21, 2014

This is a great place to stop. Good prices and good variety. We got the thicker crust and one pizza was the perfect size to split between 2 people.

“Quick bite”
Reviewed February 16, 2014 via mobile

Visited on a Sunday afternoon , the restaurant was busy and the service was fast.

Starter and main course came out super fast, and then we had to wait a short while for the freshly baked chocolate cake which was delicious.

Always good food and great service

Will be back.

Keep up the good work guys and girls x
