The food is OK, if unimaginative, but this is a chain restaurant and serves a specific need. The service is always good and the place is in a convenient location.

Being a frequent visitor to Pizza Express restaurants I know what to expect and food wise this was the usual good standard. What lets this restaurant down a little is that it is very cold (in temperature and atmosphere). The rating system doesn't allow me a good (only very good) so average it is.

As far as a chain restaurant is concerned we love Pizza Express, the food is decent (you get what you pay for) and you never pay full price because there's always a voucher. However 6 of us visited Pizza Express in Touchwood last night and to be honest it wasn't great, certainly not the standard you normally get. First the waiter started to clear plates at the table, practically in my husbands lap!! Then the supposedly hot puddings were served cold, the waiter was also not as friendly and attentive as PE staff usually are, I could have excused it if the restaurant had been busy but we were one of only 5 tables in the whole restaurant!!
Overall I'd normally give a trip to PE 8 or 9 out of 10 but I feel like I could only give Touchwood PE a 6/10 last night. A little disappointing overall.

I think with Pizza Express what you get is what you see, standard menu and food is normally perfectly edible and satisfying. We turned up on a Saturday night when everywhere else in Touchwood was full to the brim and were told by staff that there would be at least a 20 minute wait on food. In reality, our starters were delivered to us within 5 minutes and our mains were no longer than 10 minutes behind these. The staff were attentive and helpful and we wouldn't hesitate to return in the future.

We went here a week ago during rush hour lunch time on a Sunday. All the restaurants in touchwood informed us there was a 20minute wait minimum for a table, now when we're hungry we need to eat, so we headed to pizza express! We were seated within 5 minutes and within a couple more our drinks order was taken. The service was faultless, fast but not rushed, friendly but not over the top. Our food came in ample timing and was good (as per expected in all pizza express'). We were constantly topped up/asked if we wanted any further drinks - one of the main things that doesn't happen enough when dining out! We at a 3course meal plus drinks in no longer than 1 hour and had a nice healthy bill for 2 of us at a mere £60. Would definitely return!
