“Disappointing, compared to our home PEx in Carlisle”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

We came to Inverness on holiday and booked PEx on a Sunday night. When we entered the premises we found it very hot as if the A/C was not working correctly. You could smell the cooking.

We ordered the Nero wine and a bottle of Merlot came which was replaced. Our pizzas came very quickly and one was awash with oil which made the base very soggy and it wasnt their uniform round shape which they normally are. Deserts were OK. We paid up and left but a nagging thought got me to check the bill more thoroughly. We had been charged for the Merlot so retraced our steps. The assistant checked the bill and gave us a £2 refund. They had forgotten, too, to add a coffee which the graciously gave us gratis.

This restaurant is not up to the standard of other PEx we visit and we cant see why we should return, rather we will go to Little Italy for the next two nights.

There was an outside seating area and when folks left a large number of very big seagulls descended on the tables to peck away at waste food. Some passers by even photographed them. Staff should be aware of this and clear up more promptly.,

“Love your Romano Pizzas”
Reviewed June 7, 2013

Visited the Inverness Pizza Express on a Thursday evening and was pleasantly surprised on the quality of food and service being offered. Managed to get the corner table near the front window which was roomy enough for the four of us. Starters (garlic bread with cheese) and drinks arrived promptly and waitress was helpful by explaining all the options available. We had the Romana thin base pizzas with various toppings. The Pollo ad Astra Leggera was really good and I would recommend this to anyone that is looking for a really tasty pizza. The bill was quite reasonable and I would certainly return. It is worth signing up for e-mail offers as you do get various discount options which can make a considerable saving when you have a few in your party.

“Good food but very noisy”
Reviewed May 12, 2013 via mobile

Good service and quick but very noisy in the restaurant. Calzone was tasty and good value. Central location, not a lot of choice for non pizza eaters though with just a couple of pastas on menu. There are also deals available if you sign up to emails on website.

“Just ok for Pizza Express”
Reviewed May 12, 2013 via mobile

We were met at the door and frowned upon for not having a booking at 6pm on a Friday evening. A few empty tables for 4 but we were told the only one available to up was the one facing the door which was wedged open on a cold and rainy evening. Not a great start. Food was ok. My pollo ad astra was not up to usual Belfast standards but edible enough. Overall it felt a little rushed and unwelcoming. Maybe prefer locals. I'll be going elsewhere when and if Im next trying to spot Nessy!
