“Great Pizza”
Reviewed 28 March 2014

The Pizza is good here although we always have to ask for it to be cooked a little more, don't like soggy middles! As we go often, mainly Orange Wednesday, it would be nice to see some daily specials or some variation to the menu. The pasta is very short on meat. The service varies, when the Manager Emma or a great Waiter called Mike are on duty its brilliant, other times can be just about OK. Can be very noisy in the evenings. They do a great Orange Wednesday deal,

“Very pleasant”
Reviewed 19 March 2014 via mobile

Had a meal with two friends last night, I do wish the lighting was better in there but that's just a minor niggle. Had the bruschetta con funghi for starter, omg it's so gorgeous, just wonderful. Has the leggera pizza which has chicken on it, disappointed as it usually has rocket in the centre with balsamic vinegar on it, but this had iceberg lettuce with a different sauce on it, still, very nice but I love rocket with balsamic vinegar. The pizza also seemed smaller than usual. It was still nice though. I then had the special dessert of Apple and rhubarb crumble. Very nice. Not too big and just right in terms of crunchiness. A cappuccino followed which was nice. My friends had nice meals, one had the leggera salad with chicken which was huge and looked lovely. My other pal had the coffee and chocolate brownie, the brownie wasn't good, very dry and unpleasant. The one problem we did have was my pal asked for dissarano with just one chunk of ice. The waitress didn't listen and put lots of ice in which was small chunks and couldn't be taken out by hand, so we asked for another one and of course, they had run out so... She had a baileys. They didn't charge for it so at least that was something.
Overall a nice meal and using their current 'second meal for £2.50' voucher to discount the meal made it even better.
Would go again.

“Disappointing”
Reviewed 2 January 2014

Used to come here all the time, varying between lunch and dinner. I have to say the experience has been consistent in terms of worsening. There is a mix of great and not so great staff, the standard of the food quality is almost maintained, however, hygiene standards are shocking. Pizza Express has such a huge reputation, yet is now pretty much a fast food chain rather than a decent restaurant.
