As regular visitors to our local Pizza Express in Lincoln, we have come to expect a very high standard from Pizza Express restaurants and I have to say we weren't disappointed after our meal here. The restaurant was very busy but staff were polite and efficient. We didn't have to wait too long for our meal which was nice. Overall... More

This is a lovely setting by the river and a tremendous building so worth the visit for this alone. Staff are young, efficient and very welcoming and friendly and the food was of the best quality expected of this chain. A very relaxing and enjoyable meal all round.

A beautiful building which really sets this Pizza Express from its counterparts. It definitely felt more special, and grandiose. The food was, as expected, standard. It was very tasty and reasonably priced, with good service. Sadly, despite booking, we were made to wait 10 minutes in the lobby before eating, which was a shame, but couldn't be helped as they...

Had a lovely meal here for valentines day. £17 each for two courses and bottle of wine, such great value. The food was delicious I cannot fault it. Service was a bit questionable, one gentleman was quite blunt and rude towards us when we questioned something on the menu but the other staff were lovely.

We arrived in York for a week's stay and upon our first foray over the Bridge from our hotel into the centre of the City, we noticed with interest the Restaurant was "dark" and seemed to be having a makeover or building works undertaken. We watched with interest for a day or two and then saw it was open and... More

This restaurant, despite being a part of the Pizza Express chain, felt completely unique and individual. The decor is gorgeous and truly impressive. However, I was most impressed by the service. I had been a complete dope and ordered the vegan pizza without realising it was vegan (I know, what a nitwhit) and when it came without cheese I was... More

The good at Pizza Express is always reliably good and this branch was no disappointment. We had the set menu - £12.95 for 3 courses with a voucher code - and it was great value. Our server, Olivia, was super friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. There has also been a refit of this branch which looks... More

We go to Pizza Express in York every 6 or so weeks as I meet my friend in York. We always go there as you can always rely on a gorgeous meal and it is super child friendly. Crayons and stickers were given to both children (18 months and 7 months) obviously the 7 month old didn't use them but... More

Came here expecting a decent meal. We both fancied a pizza and ordered a large American spicy. It was listed a thin and crispy. They weren't kidding. I think ours had been run over by a steam roller. It was so thin it was a wonder you couldn't see through it. Drinks were expensive and we left hungry and feeling... More
