Loved the restaurant - the food is great as always, but what makes it so special is the way staff makes you feel - always with a natural smile on their faces, serving everyone with ease, making an effort with kids and attending your every whim! The place itself is stunning - modern and clean, finished in techno-theme art and... More

We are here after visiting the Xmas market. Found the staff very friendly and helpful. All of us had 3 courses and really enjoyed each course. Really good food and nice atmosphere. Would highly recommend.

Very friendly staff and spacious seating. though it is close to town you dont have the hustle and bustle to get there. I like that I can get somewhere with ease instead of trying to get through the crowd and you dont have people walking pass the window constantly. I would recommend for anyone who likes to eat in peace.

A drive home from Nottingham warranted ya stopping off for some lunch and a break in St Albans so we visited here for a meal. Friendly staff, good food and drink as usual. What you expect from a Pizza Express. Thank you

My son chose Pizza Express for his 8th birthday party. The boys loved making their own pizza as well as eating them! My son and his friends had a great time. Also have to mention how helpful Carina the Manager was. Before the party she took time to explain how it would work and during the party she really engaged... More

Good food and friendly waitress who showed endless patience with our taking so long to decide on which pizza to have (particularly as they have introduced a different range to the classic!)

Popped in for lunch to use our 'Nectar - Sainsbury's' special offer voucher and to break our journey south. Made welcome even though it was busy with grannies, mums and kids close to the end of the school holidays. (Rather noisy!) Pizzas delicious as usual. Service friendly and efficient.
