“Very impressed!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 March 2014

We had our first visit to Pizza Express in Stockton Heath to celebrate my grandson's 6th birthday. We took 6 children and there were 6 adults. One of the children was on a gluten free diet and was well catered for. The staff were extremely helpful and knowledgeable about the GF options. The children were having the £6.50 3 course meal from the Piccolo menu and the adults had an assortment of pizzas and pasta. We were all extremely impressed with the quality of the food. Everything is made to order so you wait a little longer but well worth waiting for! The Piccolo food for the children was really nicely presented and clean plates all round said it all. Although I thought the Piccolo menu was very reasonable for what they got, the rest is a little on the pricey side and drinks are not cheap but the big bonus was that I was able to use Tesco vouchers which were quadrupled when eating in Pizza Express so that was a big saving. Would definitely go back and recommend to others.

“Pockets Need To Be Deep”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 March 2014

Overall a good night out, but rather costly for what's on offer.
The food is good & hot or as good as any other so can not grumble.
Service a little slow, (but they do many things at the same time) or perhaps these days better to say laid back.
All points of the establishment are clean and tidy, that's a big plus when food is being served.
Staff friendly and willing to help.

“Management need to be more efficient”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 March 2014

we arrived on a Wednesday at about half six, the restaurant wasn't that busy but there was a large party in after we were sat we waited for our drinks order to be taken. and we waited. after about 20 minutes our drinks order was finally taken along with our food order. during the time it took for our starters to arrive the restaurant did start to get busy. we were sat near the door and saw people waiting ten minutes to even be acknowledged. There were three staff on and if it was coordinated properly they could have coped a lot better.
our starters arrived half an hour after ordering them. our mains were the same half an hour after the starters so we had already been waiting 1 hour twenty minutes.
the food was delicious, but not worth the wait or poor service.
there needs to be somebody assigned to jobs e.g first drink, seating, order taking, and running food. because when we were there all staff manager included were clueless on where the tables were up to.

“Pizza Express goes gluten-free”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 January 2014 via mobile

Back to the gluten-free thing again.

Only found out today that Pizza Express in Stockton Heath provided many meals that were suitable for Coeliacs. My wife and I had already planned to visit the cinema (2 for 1 on Orange Wednesday) only to find that Orange also provides 2 for 1 pizzas at Pizza Express. So, why not?

A telephone call to find PE and a table was booked. The young woman on the phone was extremely helpful regarding their GF policies and how much training staff had in the provision of GF foods. This left me feeling very confident about their GF ability to provide for an important dietary need.

On arrival we were greeted by a very friendly staff member who was aware of our needs. A very clean and modern restaurant, we were shown to a window table and settled with a drink. My wife was surprised to find that the drinks menu also included gluten-free beer, a rare event.

The pizzas arrived and were differentiated by their special plates (mine was not gluten-free). They were delicious and well presented! We were not sorry to have visited. Apart from the 2 for 1 offer through Orange, the friendly staff and the exquisite tastes, it makes us very likely to return.
