“Service is the key”
Reviewed June 5, 2013

Got to be honest have never found the service here great but on this occasion we never got through the door stood in a queue and watched not particularly busy on a Monday night. Not one person was taking charge of the door??? One couple said someone was laying a table for them but from what l could see that was not happening? We left as did others got a better experience elsewhere. if you want to go to Pizza Express try the one in Lloyds avenue far better

“Great Italian Pizza”
Reviewed May 31, 2013

Went to Pizza Express Friday lunchtime, upon arrival as being one of the first customers of the day the service I received was great!
Ordered the classic cheese & tomato pizza with the dough ball starter and it was lovely - real Italian pizza base it was amazing. The staff couldn't do enough for me, they were really friendly and attentive, got drinks and food very quickly could not fault it!
The only slight negative is that I did not like the ultra modern décor very much - so not my style, but that's only a minor blip to a great pizza restaurant!

“Great service”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

We ate here in the evening - best to make a reservation as it was very busy.

I was impressed with the menu as it catered for a gluten free diet.

Even though we went at a busy time, the service was very good and food arrived promptly.

A good selection for the kids as well.

Would recommend.

“Real Italian pizza”
Reviewed May 22, 2013

We went to Pizza Express on Sunday late evening, around 9:30 pm without reserved table. The staff are really friendly and helpful, we did not feel they are not happy to entertain us.
We ordered 3 types of pizza and all of them was awesome and real Italian and they served those very quickly. (I'm not sure but 2 guys at the kithcen seem like Sicilian person.)
The restaurant inside is modern, simple and clean. Lovely place! I’m sure we will visit them again.

“Service poor”
Reviewed May 17, 2013 via mobile

We really enjoy coming here but this week we visited and it was poor, we got seated by a young lad who gave us menus and walked off not saying anything not even asking us to order drinks, 10 minutes later a plesant young lady came over and asked us to order food, still no drinks! So after ordering food & asking to order drinks we waited, seemed very unorganised and under staffed our food arrived 25 miniutes later forgetting the side salad which then trying to get someone's attention was difficult enough then basically being told that was our fault we didn't order it ! After our meal our children wanted dessert after getting menus another 15 minutes past and no one came back to take our order so we paid our bill and left, VERY disappointing !
