Restaurant details

Neighborhood: Bloomsbury
Description: Situated two minutes from the British Museum in Coptic Street the restaurant is a popular place for both families and tourists. Close to the heart of theatre land in the West End of Central London, the restaurant was established in 1967 and was the second PizzaExpress to open. The tiles on the walls are the original to the dairy and many of its features date back to 1967, which gives this restaurant a unique identity.

“Consistently good pizzas”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

Im not a pizza fan but my kids are so i was overruled when i suggested the thai round the corner.i must admit that i do like pizza express pizzas as i can only eat the super thin base ones of which they do a couple of variations.this place is fantastically located for the British Museum and was a very nice restaurant in lovely Bloomsbury.

“Charming location”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

Hidden away on a corner of two small side streets, this Pizza Express was a lovely place to spend a lunchtime in the spring sunshine after we had visited the British Museum. We sat outside. We didn't realise how close we were to the hustle and bustle of Tottenham Court Road until afterwards! There was the occasional pedestrian or cyclist, but nothing else.

Service was prompt and professional, if a little "hurried", but maybe that's normal in a London or big city thing. As we departed, though, the waitress did take the time to chat briefly to us about our friend running the London Marathon.

Food and price was as expected for this restaurant-chain (I mean this is in a good way).

“Great food, Great service”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

We stopped off here inbetween the British Museum and a show at the Dominion Theatre. It's only a few minutes walk inbetween. The food was lovely and hot, the staff friendly. It is a lovely place that used to be an old milk dairy. The wall tiles are the originals and I believe it was the second pizza express to open. The atmosphere was warm and friendly and it was a lovely stop off for our dinner on a cold London evening.

“Kudos to Pizza Express”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

This review relates to all of the Pizza Express restaurants in London - BRAVO; the food is always fresh and tasty and the service is excellent. The thin crust is fabulous. We have been to at least 10 or more of the restaurants and have never been disappointed. Only complaint is that menu needs to have more pizza choices.
