Inside the Village Mall in Doha this cozy Italian pizzeria , I had lunch here one afternoon , he wasn't busy at all at that time and I was served quickly and efficiently.
The restaurant inside is nicely appointed , clean and quite spacious , the staff was ok.
It was a pleasant experience .

This was my first visit to Pizza Express and i liked it. You can see your pizza in its way in and out of the oven, however the seats are not very comfortable! There are two tables with comfy chairs we were lucky to find them available. The food is very good and their service is very good as well. You should visit if you are in Doha City Center.

We used to visit pizza express when we lived in the UK and its a very different experience to the one in Doha, the food quality here was bordering on inedible. Located in the top of City Center, Pizza Express offers another 50QAR buffet option for the weekday in "budget-friendly starved" West Bay. Service was very good and attentive, too many "yes mam, no mam, this way mam" for my liking but it seems everyone is trained in Doha in this over the top, bending over backwards servant style. To start off the salad bar is a bit random, build your own basic lettuce, tomato, roasted garlic, baked potato, roasted zuccini salad?? It was hard to actually build any sort of dish, a very random selection of bits and pieces. Like the biggest platter was of unpeeled roasted cold garlic cloves. These beauties are delicious I know, but what am I gonna do with them, eat a whole plate of roasted garlic? No bread to smush it into, no plain pasta and olive oil to kinda make a dish. The pasta was probably the worst dish, spaghetti bolognese. Infact the worst one I've ever eaten. It was so so so dry barely coated in a faintly tomato sauce. I looked for any sort of tomato pasta sauce to add to moisten it but no. There were tiny reminants of meat flecked throughout but when you hit a morsel be prepared for the strangest mince you've ever tried. It was a grainy texture, the texture of ground up bones, like sand with sharp bits. This is not the beef mince you use at home, it was really really odd and after one mouthful, that was enough. You can't call that bolognese, that's an insult to Italian cuisine. The pizzas faired better. A fresh offering every cople of minutes. Pan pizza, with the basic toppings, 4 or so different ones, hot and tasted good. It's not Italian style pizza but I think it would keep most people happy with the cheesy goodness. The price doesn't include a drink so factor in another 10QAR for that. I think it's great there is another budget buffet option in CC to join the Chinese at the other end, but I won't be returning, the food quality was just too poor and it is a sad representation of the UK franchise.
