Three of us went for a girly catch up and we didn't get off to a great start as when we sat down the cutlery on the table had already been used and clearly was over looked when the table was reset. Not an issue they were replaced, however after ordering a bottle of wine and then the glasses that... More

This restaurant is infested with flies. The staff were apologetic but clearly head office are not doing anything to rectify the issue. The minute food arrived, our table was swarmed by flies. We sat in the rear corner of the restaurant. The ladies & gents loos also had the same flies. Not a pleasant experience.

However, we popped into this restaurant for a quick lunch, at first everything seemed OK, staff were friendly, then the starters came. A side salad and garlic bread, both of which seemed... More

A firm family favourite, and as good as ever. Despite a very busy sat night service was great. Used our taste card which was also welcome and cut the bill in half. My daughter does not like too much sauce on her pasta and the restaurant was very accommodating to ensure she was happy.

Had a nice meal with prompt service (as I've come to expect from Pizza Express), after enjoying the great architectural sights of Reading
