After an abortive trip to Nandos which was heaving, loud and not fancying a 25 minute wait for a table there, we repaired to Pizza Express up the road, a branch we haven't been to for some years. The place was pleasantly full but not packed. Shown to a table for 4 the two of us perused the menu. My... More

Look on Internet for vouchers, this can save you a lot of money. Food is always very hot, we have been about 30 times this year and never had... More

I have eaten here a few times and the food is generally pretty good. Service is great and the staff are more than friendly. Its not the most relaxing place to eat as there are generally a lot of children there and its always quite busy.

I've visited lots of Pizza Express Branches in different areas, but I must admit Loughton PE makes the best pizza. The food is delicious and good quality, only staff could be more pleasant! Please be aware that weekends are always busy!

Came here in August for a family meal. I really like the food here. The staff are friendly and attentive too. We used our Tesco club card vouchers this time. I had chicken pesto pasta, it was delicious. ☺

Understaffed only two people looking after the whole restaurant. No air con working on the hottest day of the year, ice machine not working.. Melon in the starters was warm.. Staff are not to blame but someone is! Should have gone to Zizzy down the road but the missus prefers pizza express...!! You live and learn!!!

Went here on a Monday night with a friend. It was pretty empty but they had the front windows pulled back which gave it a nice feel. Our waiter was attentive but by no means intrusive, checking we were happy with the temperature and giving us free choice of any table (it always annoys me when an empty restaurant forces... More

As with pizza express everywhere you know what you are going to get. Pretty standard as anywhere else. However, the staff are friendly and always helpful when we go. Consistently good food - but you know what you are going to have before you get there - and very few changes to menu to add variety. Safe bet for a... More
