Enjoyed a great family lunch out on 2nd Jan. Quickly seated (flexible waiter arranged a nice spot whilst it was v busy), quick with service, and very good food. Very enjoyable.

Took our granddaughter for a treat. Although the food was quite tasty the potion size was small, our eight year granddaughter ate an adult meal with no problem. I ordered the Pollo Pesto and was disappointed with the amount of chicken the dish had and the potion size. For £10.50 I feel this was a rip off. The pizza's looked good so would stick to them if I went again. Also annoyed that they will not accept the taste card for all of December!

Well located by the Oracle Shopping Centre, you know what you are getting when you visit a chain restaurant like Pizza Express. That is not to say there is anything wrong but.........
Had a bit of a blip as the friends we were meeting were shown to a different part of the restaurant - we had booked and they knew our names - so we were all there for 15 minutes before we accidentally found them whilst on our way to the loo! Poor communication on the staff's part. Food was OK, the wait on a Tuesday evening though far too long. Yes I know they always say 'the food is cooked fresh' but there are limits to this. Our waiter was too busy talking to people he knew to bother with asking whether we were OK. He also forgot to bring the salads until he was asked about them. This particular restaurant is freshly decorated but too noisy to allow much conversation. I think PE is expensive for what it is.

We visited with out grandparents towards the end of lunch time in the school holidays and just about managed to get a table in the large, very well designed decor. The menu was really easy to order from, like it normally is from pizza express, and was a reasonable price. Our food came in about average time and the pizzas were far better than we had ever had in another branch of pizza express. Afterwards we ordered deserts which were very good, even if the tirimasu was massive. Service was very friendly thoroughout our meal. Wouldn't visit at lunch time in the holidays for a 'grown up' meal out though.

I like how they can cater to something that you want changed and the staff are always happy and greet you nicely. I don't like how loud it can sometimes get and how cramped into a space you are!
