“Quick lunch great service”
Reviewed 7 January 2013

Touring Leadenhall market we decided to grab a pizza and drinks at this restaurant. The place filled with office workers quickly at lunchtime. Pizza was delicious. The service was great even though the place was packed. Pizza and 2 cokes for 12 euro. Very clean and we would return on another visit to London.

“Your average Pizza Express really!”
Reviewed 15 December 2012

I met a friend here for dinner one evening after work, since she is very fussy and Pizza Express is one of few places she will happily dine!
We were seated on the lower floor, which was empty when we arrived but filled up quickly, so if you are going in the evening during the working week, I would recommend booking to beat the after-work crowd.
We ordered the bruschetta con funghi for starters, i had the polpette bolognesa romana pizza for main, which was very tasty but disappointingly lacking in meatballs. Since 'polpette' is the first word in the title of the dish, I would have expected a good amount of meatballs! My friend ordered the pollo ad astra romana pizza, which is the only thing she'll eat so she must have thought it was good!
We skipped dessert and enjoyed hot drinks instead. I had the Bailey's Latte, which was absolutely delicious! My friend had the mocha.
The service was great, a little slow at times but it was very busy. The atmosphere of the place is nice. There were a lot of people but it wasn't too loud.

“It does what it says on the tin!”
Reviewed 12 November 2012

If you are in the city I recommend going here for lunch as the building is large and on two floors. The lower floor which is accessed by some pretty narrow stairs is usually a better bet to get a table more quickly as it is a very popular venue for city types.

The menu is standard Pizza Express fayre with plenty of pizza, pasta and some salads.

We chose the Chicken Caesar and the Goats Cheese salad and ordered a couple of drinks.

The food came quickly, well presented and tasted fresh.

The decor is nice and modern with words spelled out on the wall in cutlery which is a bit different.

Overall good service and total bill £32 which for the city is about average.

There was no shortage of people waiting for a table and we were lucky to be seated so quickly.

Toilets checked out and found to be clean and tidy and stocked with paper and toiletries.

“Great pizza and fast service - ideal for a lunch break”
Reviewed 6 November 2012 via mobile

Meeting up with a friend during a lunch break from work, we were looking for somewhere with good food, reasonable price and that we could fit into a 45 min break.

Chose this pizza express for its location - half way between our two offices and were pleasantly surprised by the decor and friendly service. We chose to sit downstairs which was quiet enough for a catchup though tables were pretty close together.

Food was prepared and served very quickly and was one of the best pizza's I've had in a while.

Priced at £36 for two (main, a beer and coffee each) whilst not cheap is pretty reasonable for this part of London.

“Busy, Busy, Busy”
Reviewed 27 August 2012

A City based branch catering for the city workers across the Square Mile. Went and lunch time and the food is served hot in record time but the atmosphere and service does suffer as a result. Probably best to wait until after the rush if you want a slightly slower experience!
