“Rude waitress”
Reviewed 5 April 2014 via mobile

Often visit pizza express for friendly get togethers. The food is always good however on this occasion my friend made the mistake of asking for Mayo, to be told "we're not that kind of restaurant"....definitely put an awkward moment into our meal.....

“Get a voucher as can be expensive”
Reviewed 5 April 2014

Think the food and atmosphere are always good here (general chain standards really). Can be expensive but if signed up to their club you will receive a voucher nearly every week which is worth it! love the super-food salad but wouldn't pay the £10 expected if I didn't have a voucher, touching on extreme for a salad price! Pudding with voucher isn't the best, but who goes for pudding at a pizza restaurant. Would defo eat here again.

“Don't forget your vouchers!”
Reviewed 2 April 2014 via mobile

Have visited Pizza Express a few times over the last 6months with friends and family and always had a good experience. Service is always friendly although sometimes could be a little faster especially between courses.
Great choice of pizza's which are different to your standard Italian and the meat platter starter is the best thing on the menu.
Only complaint would be the price is a little excessive but if you have Tesco vouchers, or dine on the special deals they email you it can be very reasonable would definitely recommend to friends.

“Good service but pizza tasteless”
Reviewed 21 March 2014

I visited this restaurant on an evening with a friend who had booked a table. The service was excellent but the ensalada pizza tasteless. Why is it impossible to have pizza closer to the real thing? There should be herbs in it such as tarragon no sign of it there. The pizza base was thin but not crunchy. The red wine from Sicily was excellent for £3.95. I would not say the same about the pollenta fries which were the same price and not tasty. I then had a fudge icecream glory which was nice.

“Standard Pizza Express fayre, better than average place”
Reviewed 15 March 2014

Same old Pizza Express that you know and love.

But the place was nice, roomy, with lots of window tables to people watch.

Staff were also very friendly and attentive too.
