We were there at 5pm yesterday and when I enquired if I could use my Tastecard the stoney faced waitress said no as it was a Friday. We were then handed the ala carte menu. I checked but I could not find any stipulation of this on my booking and so asked if there were other offers and the response... More

It sounds cheesy (haha), but the pizza here is actually really good. Good kids' meals as well. Nice location.

Thankfully we had discount vouchers, the pizzas were definitely not good value for money, a couple were a bit crispy around the thin Base and all of them (4) were lukewarm warm, quickly getting cold in the restaurant. The toilets were clean but needed some maintenance, it a broken lock and general 'old grime' around tiling. All in all it... More

A reliable choice and the pizzas were as good as ever. It's a little hidden away off Cornmarket Street in the Golden Cross Arcade, but it's a very historic area (the restaurant is on the upper floor of a 15th Century building) so well worth seeking out.

A lovely evening spent here with my friends after a long weekend in Oxfordshire. The food was amazing!! I had the sour dough bread with red onions and mushrooms. It was flavoursome and soft. My friends had chicken and red pepper pizza not to spicy but the right heat. Will definitely be back next time where here and staff where... More

This restaurant had more options for my (I have Celiac Disease) than any other pizza restaurant I've come across. The pizza was delicious, and the service was excellent. They also have good wines available at great prices, and the atmosphere is very comfortable and fun. My husband is not a Celiac and had a "normal" pizza. He raved about his... More

We had dinner here on Valentine's day. The restaurant was busy as you would expect but service was still absolutely excellent. Food was great as ever from Pizza Express and we had a lovely evening.

Grade 1 listed building, tucked off Cornmarket with an access through to the Covered Market, Pizza Express occupies some fabulous rooms. 15th century buildings; there are 16th century wall paintings upstairs and all is sympathetic to the original hotel function. This is a decent pizza express: the menu you'd expect with good service. Watch out for the many different offers... More

Waitress was lovely. Place was characterful, clean and in a nice quiet courtyard. Enjoyed my 'usual', prompt fresh and tasty. Pizza Express has never failed to deliver so far in my experience.
