Ordered pasta but couldn't seem to get any cutlery to eat it with. Staff toooooo busy to deal with my request. Been eating there over a decade -- no more! Too many other choices available. Good bye Pizza Express!

We have been with family in this restaurant coule days ago. The waiter was terrible. He was like a big boss in this restaurant. He is about (45-55 years old). Pizza is poor. We not recommend this restaurant.
