“Exceptional authentic Italian cuisine”
Reviewed 24 August 2009

Authentic Apulian cuisine, dishes you don't often find in the UK. Exceptional quality and presentation - we were just back from Apulia and hadn't found anything as good. Wines to match: we had an excellent negroamaro. Nice decor - modern touches in a historic building. Good ambiance - the restaurant also does well-priced pizzas and pasta, so buzzing. Happy Hour even better value.

“If they do not want you...”
Reviewed 31 March 2009

If they do not want you as customers they should say they are full rather than putting you on sofa seating and then acting annoyed that you are there. A smile has no cost.

Go to Pizza Express if you are looking for good food, pleasant service and a good time.

I shall not be returning and will encourage others to avoid it.

“great for gluten free treat”
Reviewed 24 August 2008

FANTASTIC !Very helpful regarding my dietary requirements, i need a gluten free diet and they went to the trouble of buying in gluten free pasta and flour to make me a tasty gluten-free pizza.

I have been back to infusion a few times and they are always friendly and helpful. They are many times more helpful than the itallian just down the road, that has been there for years!!

“Best food in town”
Reviewed 19 July 2008

Lovely decor and fantastic food - a massive step up from the usual fake Italian town centre efforts. Good wine list and friendly staff. Child-friendly. Great deal at lunchtimes pasta or (big!) pizza plus drink for £5. Why anyone goes to the chain pizza restaurant in town when this place is miles better, cheaper, more authentic and serves bigger portions of much better food, is anyone's guess!
