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

Haven't been to PizzaExpress for a couple of years so we went and I mail deal which we thought was very good value £13 for three courses can't be bad. 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

Have found the service at most Pizza Express to be pretty poor, but this place was a breath of fresh air. We had our drinks and food order taken almost immediately and then the starters and main courses flowed very quickly. We were all finished in a little over an hour which is excellent for a lunch when you're out... More

Most of Pizza Express stores are in interesting buildings; this one is not! However the decor, with it's huge retro light fittings makes up for lack of architectural delight. On a really positive note, unlike many sites, this one is spacious, with plenty of space between tables. The toilets looked ready for a refresh however. The food was absolutely up... More

We went for meal with family, including grandchildren, 6years and 1year old. The service we received was very good, the waiter was exceptional, he treated the children with making sure nothing hot was placed near the baby and sorted out suitable cutlery and extra plate etc. for cutting up the food. The food was good and served in a timely... More
