“Lovely waitress and lovely food”
Reviewed 29 June 2014 via mobile

The only two down sides to our restaurant visit was the freezing cold air from the air conditioning but the waitress was very accommodating and swiftly turned if off when she saw we were still wearing our jackets and the lack of loo roll in the ladies toilets. The food was lovely and we didn't have to wait long for it after ordering. The dough balls and warm chocolate fudge cake never disappoint.

“Lovely food, Great Service, needed defrosting afterwards....”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

We booked a table, arrived on time and were instantly led to a clean, well presented table.
The food was consistently good, pizza express is always reliably tasty, although one of my guests reported her pizza was slightly on the burnt side.
Kudos to them though for happily accommodating my requst to mofify a salad somewhat, however once the food arrived, because of the blasting air con, it went very cold very quickly. We sat and ate with our jackets on. The waitress noticed we were cold and said she would turn the air con down however this did not seem to help.
Lovely food, but bring a sweater!

“Quick, satisfying lunch”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

The best pizza we have had on our trip. Lunch was quick and tasty. The service was excellent. The lunch menu is great for small, light meals.

“A breath of fresh air”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

I do not like chain-style restaurants, but will use them because often that is all that is available. That said Pizza Express in Cardiff Bay is DIFFERENT. The food is good, the service prompt, the staff know what they are doing and the chefs equally professional. The hustle and bustle of a busy day was taken in their stride - why? - because they have the correct number of staff working who know what they are doing.

One complaint the seats are starting to look tired and a few have holes in them - get them changed - it is a BIG turnoff.
