“Wake up Management!”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

Dined at the Wilmslow restaurant on the evening of 1st July, a belated 'Father's Day' treat from my daughter. Firstly, lets start with the positives about this place. Starter of bruschetta...nice,followed by a lovely thin crust pizza....end! Negatives... very poor service. My conclusion with the level of service is quite simply too few staff taking on far too much. Tables left far too long before removing 'mess' and preparing for new diners. Generally untidy throughout. Bottled peroni beer is extortionately overpriced (£7 for a 660ml bottle). Ordering food is a case of hand up for waiter's attention or one would sit for an age! Had to complain about a FILTHY dessert spoon, the young lady waiter's attitude was, let's say, in need of serious re-training in responding to a customer complaint. This was followed by yet a further problem, this time with the dirty teaspoon provided with the tea. Following this, given my back was facing the waitresses departure with the said dirty utensil, my daughter witnessed her FLING it angrily to one side on entering the kitchen area. To sum up...the buck stops with the MANAGEMENT, who are clearly resting on their laurels.

Good service, the food you would expect from pizza express and good value with a voucher code- not worth it without. No complaints here. Clean and tidy. Well kept and always have good staff. Will continue with my monthly visits!!

“Best version of the chain”
Reviewed 26 May 2014 via mobile

I have 2 kids. Pizza express ticks my boxes. However I don't want to compromise too much & have a rubbish adult time. Scott the waiter here makes sure both adults and kids are well served. Can recommend for him alone. Over lots of vouchers and we always use our free time here

“Never had a problem”
Reviewed 10 May 2014

Have been to this Pizza Express several times and never had any issues. The restaurant itself is light and spacious and they are always very accommodating of my young daughter.

I always find the waiters here friendly and polite, although service is usually on the slow side especially if the restaurant is busy and this was the case when we visited last Friday evening. But it's not a major issue for me.

I've had quite a few things from the menu and never had any complaints; the food is good and the portion sizes are still very decent.

Overall, it's a good restaurant and a good advert for the Pizza Express brand; I'm sure I'll be visiting again soon.
