Me and the wife wanted to go out for a nice Italian but in midweek decided we couldn't be bothered to get ready and hit town (a bit lazy I know :) ). So we checked online to see if there was any Italian take-away’s, different to your standard pizza shop that do the odd spaghetti bolognaise.
We then stumbled upon Italian Express, as soon as we saw the menu we wanted a couple of things and decided to try it, and boy are we happy we did. After placing the order and being told it would be 45 minutes (Very reasonable to say we live near the Northern General Hospital), the distance was over 3 miles. It turned up within half an hour and the food was so hot, fresh and more than anything tasty. Just as good if not better than any Italian restaurant we have been to before. The Garlic bread is definitely the best around and the Penne Nonna was probably the best pasta dish I have had.
After the meal I was so impressed I thought I would call back and give our compliments to the staff and chef. We are all quick to criticise these days so I wanted to make sure that the restaurant knew how happy and pleased we were with the meal.
Five star, would recommend to anyone and will definitely use again in the future, keep up the good work Italian Express.
