Tasty pizza inspired by pizzas served in Rome. Tried Peroni Gran Reserve, which was expensive but tasted great. Only down side was the £1.80 for a couple of red onion slices. I downloaded a code which gave 25% discount of food, so overall not bad value.

My boyfriend and I popped in on Saturday for a quick lunch. The service was quick and all the staff were friendly. Will definitely call back in next time I'm in Manchester shopping!

Really busy (show on at Arena just around the corner )but still served quickly and great tasting food. Service was first class despite the place being rammed. (Served by Spanish gentleman- a credit to the place!)

We did get OK food, but as fast as we had passed on the dessert, we were offered the bill. We haden't even finished our drinks.

Have to admit when the pizzas arrived we thought they looked a bit rubbish, but we soon changed our minds! We haven't been to a Pizza Express for ages and so forgot how good they are.

Try to be Italian but the clue is in the ingredients and the type of pizza they offer Not impressed at all Will not be going back Very very expensive for what you get. Lots of potential but what do you expect from a corporate company!!!
