Ive eaten in many different Pizza Express restaurants and have always associated it with an enjoyable but easy and relaxed meal. However my last visit to one of the chain namely Mermaid Quay was regrettable!
It vas very busy which can't be helped on a Saturday in the Summer however I find that the noise carries in this restaurant more than others, I'm not sure if it's the circular shape but we couldnt hear ourselves think and felt very packed in. However we have eaten here before and due to the enjoyable food decided to stay regardless. We ordered our usual only to be told that not only did they not have any of that particular dish but they had run out of pasta all together!! It's an Italian restaurant.. how can you run out of Pasta at 2pm on a Saturday!?? We opted for other dishes but they were not to the usual standard and we all left half or more of what was on our plate. It was so noisy my daughter opted not to have gelato which is a first!! We paid and quickly left feeling very dissapointed.

Not the most ambient of restaurants as it is within the St David's shopping centre, but great to refuel whilst shopping. Food was served quickly by a very personable waiter. Reliable & good quality food at reasonable price.

I visited this with my wife and 4 kids in a busy lunchtime - we had the last table available I think. Service was fast and excellent - really quite surprised at how good it was.
