What a disgrace! We use Pizza Express quite a bit and the standard is usually good. Arrived at just after 9.00pm to a near empty restaurant. Not ONE clean table to sit at. Ignored by staff. Well to be fair one cook and one waitress....More

Right next door to the cinema - it was pretty quiet despite the time of day, Service was subtle but efficient, excellent choice on the menu - my Gammon Pizza was just right, just how I like it.
