A repeat visit to Pizza Express in Banbury was better than usual, due to the service mainly.
Food is nearly always good, but on this occasion, despite being quite busy, the service was very efficient, friendly and fast. Lots of staff and chefs helped.

Party of 22 accommodated with excellent service on a busy Saturday evening this enabled us all to drink, order and eat in good time to get to the theatre for Calendar Girls. The staff looked after us so well, the pizzas all came at the same time and everyone was very pleased with the whole experience..............well done Pizza Express. The hotel where we were all staying would do well to aspire to your levels of efficiency and customer service..

Post cinema pizza seemed a good idea. I have never been to a P EX before, but we have three other 'Italians' in Banbury (that we have been to) so have comparisons.
Mary had a flat pizza, the name escapes me, but it was overdone with almost roasted olives on top.
My Calzone was different to other experiences, sort of a semi crisp, biscuity type outer texture, and although the filling was reasonable, the passata base mixture was a little on the watery side, and a slightly over riding sharpness to the finish. A side salad came with my Calzone, but rendered inedible by the overly sharp dressing it was drenched in, so no choice there.
Mary had an apple juice, fine, but my 'fruity etc' Syrah was anything but. Not very good in truth.

Pound for pound, much better value is to be found in my other Italian Banbury review, as is food quality.

I don't know why I go back because the experience is always rather disappointing. The kids pasta Bolognese is always dry, often even rock hard, and the sauce is way below par compared to what you would make at home. The staff are friendly but there never seems to be someone in charge. Last time we went there were three members of staff, two of which didn't seem to be doing anything, and there must have been nearly 10 tables with dirty plates on which was rather unpleasant. Perhaps other Pizza Expresses are better than the one in Banbury....

Have eaten here many times in the past and it never fails to please us . The food is of good quality and the general approach from the staff is very welcoming . The waiting staff are very pleasant and the chefs skills do not go un noticed especially at busy times when under pressure . The restaurant is roomy and has a happy feel . We will happily returned again and again . Well done guys ! :-)
