The service by the waiting staff was very good Used a taste card to reduce bill by £18, the bill was a bit eye watering for 3 people and one child, only one glass of wine and coffee at end, soft drink x 1 for 2 people bill came to nearly £90 ! We had three courses but mostly lower... More

I enjoyed the last visit with friends to this restaurant. Service and food were up to standard. Waitress was friendly. However the restaurant is still too noisy at busy times due to high ceiling,making conversation difficult.

Food, staff and location as very good, ideal for a children's party, although the sound echos around the building and can get very noisy inside. Great for sitting outside when the weather permits.

The menu is unsurprising - it is a chain! Service is mixed, some decent staff some useless teenagers. Food is OK but very overpriced - unless you have a "30% off" coupon. Then it is just expensive. Pizzas can be soggy and other dishes are clearly microwaved - mediocre. The worst thing about it is the noise! The design of... More

It is a classic example of food that is non-authentic and plasticky. A small portion for adults which is overpriced and of little flavour. Fairly clean inside although the chefs looked like they'd been dragged through a hedge backwards. A lack of atmosphere and lots of very noisy children meant it was tricky to hear other people on our table!... More

We have recently visited this restaurant for a business lunch. The service and food was excellent and also allowed us to leave just after 1 hour without feeling rushed. the Alton premises have been recently been refurbished, but this has not sorted the echo inside which when there are a lot of noisy children it can be distracting.

Visited with my dad on a Thursday evening without booking. Promptly seated without a problem and drinks order was taken. We both chose the new passion fruit lemonade which was very nice. I chose the calamari for starter (which I think was a new addition to the menu as I haven't had it there before) which was good although the... More

So, you know what you're going to get at Pizza Express - I've not been to this place for years, as last time I came, the noise (reverberation) was horrific - and they've now had a complete refit which has made this much less like a canteen and much more cosy! Calamari was nice but the amount of lemon was... More

This was our first visit since the excellent refurb here (but more soft chairs please!). We have been here many times in the past and find it just the right sort of environment to take our two young grandchildren and our daughter in law. It was a lovely warm day and we found that the table we had booked was... More

Really really nice restaurant/staff and fantastic food. The chef really prides himself in a great delivery of food. We had a lovely night out. Greeted at the door and waited on from the minute we arrived to the minute we left. They treated my 7 year old wonderfully and she really enjoyed her meal. We go to this restaurant quite... More
