food was average (better at other branches) it was cold and the wait was longer than usual - maybe a bad night - but not much to recommend it for.

We used to live in the Braintree and were members of the much missed 'Pizza Express Club', visiting this restaurant often, plus other Pizza Express in other areas when out on business or pleasure. Over the past few years we live on the coast and our local branch at Clacton has closed so don't have the opportunity to visit Pizza... More

Food was really good the server was very attentive. Shame about the decor inside! I felt like I was sitting inside a Playschool the tables were horrible and the chairs... More

The meal at Pizza Express was a standard well prepared and presented meal. The pizza itself was tasty and thoroughly enjoyable.Service was good and our waitress was courteous and friendly. All in all a nice 'fast food' meal.

We came into this restaurant after getting bad service in Prezzo. We were sat down straight away and the kids given some colouring sheets and pens. Drinks were again served within five mins and for order taken when drinks were delivered. Food came out quickly and was very tasty. Thank you for looking after us so well.

I choose to eat here as I had an offer on food to use. It was 5pm on a Tuesday, the restaurant wasn't overly busy, ordered quite quickly and my starter wasn't to long in coming. But my main course didn't come as quickly and I saw others getting theirs even though they had come in after me. The one... More
