We love going to Pizza Express. Unfortunately our last experience was completely spoiled by amazingly poor service which happily is not the norm. We were a party of 7 celebrating the 10th birthday of our son. Food was up to usual standards but arrived haphazardly and took ages with the waitress asking to be constantly reminded of what we'd actually... More

Myself and boyfriend decided to try Pizza Express after receiving our tesco clubcard vouchers a week ago. We have never been here before and were a bit sceptical as we attempted to come here a year ago and got told rudely at the door there was no room. However, this time, we booked in advance, arrived slightly early and were... More

I had great service and if I wasn't with a friend to catch up...I would of raised this at the table! Never ever have I had my lasagne served in a plastic bowl or any meal anywhere. So pre prepared food microwaved or ? Heated. And it was £10. Just that. A plastic bowl of lasagne. Nothing to add. Dreadful!

Came here with my partner in October and we both had the bruschetta to start, it was absolutely fantastic and I would definitely order that again! We both shared a pizza for our main and it was lovely although we couldn't eat it all. We unfortunately didnt get a chance to try a dessert as we were both just too... More

I love pizza express although it can be pretty pricey. Kids were kept entertained with the colouring and stickers. Food was lovely just a shame the drinks are so expensive!

Service couldn't of been better, had a voucher for 20% off meal, very good service, I'm a hard person to please when it comes to eating at a resturant but I definitely rate this amongst the best.

Visited Pizza Express on Saturday evening, the food was really nice and enjoyed everything we had. Greeted well on arrival but went down hill from there, mains brought out before they had cleared starters and then had to ask for cutlery after a few minutes as none had been given. Ladies toilets not good, smelt and had toilet paper all... More

This is definitely not on my list of places to re-visit! In fact, like other reviewers we felt completely ripped off. This is the ONLY pizza place where I have managed to eat all of the pizza ... I actually left feeling hungry. One of our pizzas was meant to have meatballs on it, but it actually had small 'pieces'... More
