“Good food and restaurant, waiters rather miserable...”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

Much prefer this restaurant to the P.E. in the lanes, as this is much airier, brighter and open the other. I visited this restaurant with friends while staying in Brighton, and found it generally quite good! The food came quickly and was of very good quality as usual. There was a nice ambience as it was relatively busy but not too bad.
Our main waitress was very friendly, however, we felt the rest of the staff were rather unwelcoming and rather bland. The man who appeared to be the duty manager hardly even managed to crack a smile to us, and didn't even say a word to us when he came to clear our plates away!
Overall good food and restaurant, but the waiters really need to just lighten up a bit!

“Nice, friendly chain restaurant”
Reviewed 6 June 2014 via mobile

This light and airy restaurant was very busy, especially with families, when we went. However the service was really well paced, friendly and efficient. Food was standard Pizza Express fayre but the new Salmon salad is a winner. The overall atmosphere was excellent

“Nice but not the best, and sooooo expensive”
Reviewed 5 June 2014 via mobile

The original UK pizza restaurant chain has updated over the years & improved a lot, with tasty modern pizzas which are still pretty Italian style, and a load of other items. We went to Pizza Express at our friend's suggestion. My wife had a lasagne, our friend had a risotto & I had a pizza. All were excellent. But was my pizza really worth £13? No, not really. It left a bitter taste, and that's nothing to do with the pizza itself. And a large Peroni at over £6?! Sooooo... Let's see... That's over £70 for 3 people to eat fairly ordinary food. Think I'll stick to the independents in future.

“Good value”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Brilliant pizzas as always. Made on the premises and freshly cooked to order. Reasonably priced too. They box what you can't eat to take home.
