The place was so cold that we had to keep our jacket on. My colleague ordered a pizza and some ingredient were missing. She pointed it out to staff. The pizza was taken back as they needed to add mozzarella but it was returned with Parmesan instead. She pointed out the error but the waiter insisted that's was the way... More

I love Pizza Express for the gluten free pizza bases - divine! Excellent choices, value for money with a two course for £9.95 voucher we had. Kids' meals aren't the cheapest but still fine. Service was ok, if a little slow (considering there were very few people in at 5pm) and the kids' ice cream never arrived! But generally a... More

Two seniors, having enjoyed an excellent show in the West end, and feeling peckish dropped off at this Pizza Express. You know what to expect from this brand, and this establishment is no different. Our welcome was warm enough, the restaurant clean and tidy, but somehow there was little more to excite a soul. My wife's pasta dish was fine,... More

We were staying at an adjacent hotel and ordered the pizza's online. The process was straight forward and when I arrived I was greeted by the staff and was advised that the pizzas would be ready shortly. The walk to the hotel was only a couple of minutes, and the pizzas looked great, but the crust was a bit on... More

I rarely have anything negative to say about pizza express and to be fair this is a minor point in that there was no Caesar salad on the menu. I'm only annoyed as it's what I fancied and I figured this was a staple of pizza express. Otherwise the service was excellent, the food I did get well prepared and... More

Not many places to eat in Bloomsbury on a Sunday night, and we decided on Pizza Express as we wanted something light. Have not been to a Pizza Express for years (we make lovely pizza at home). We discovered the Romana on the menu - thin crust crispy pizza so ordered this as this is what we really like from... More

First time I've been to a Pizza Express for quite some time. Prices seem slightly higher than competitors to me which is fine if the quality is up to scratch. I found this to be distinctly average though. Went for a Pizza rather than something else, assuming that would be their speciality. Had a Pepperoni as I usually do. It... More

Staying at the Bedford Hotel Southampton Row London poses a pleasing challenge. Where to eat? So many attractive restaurants within 100 meters of the hotel. How to choose? Indian.. been there before good.. but not cheap, if you go for the 'full monty'. Subway... mmmmm maybe a bit too basic... I need some kind of reward today! Ok skip the... More

We dropped with minimal expectations, looking only for a quick pizza in a chain restaurant. We were pleasantly surprised with an excellent pizza, which came precisely as we ordered. The service was equally excellent; one of the waiters helped us cut the pizza when we found it difficult. The atmosphere is like most fast food establishments, but that is certainly... More

We had 2 pizza's and a Bosco salad with chicken with wine and beer as the restaurant was next to our hotel. We have been to many Pizza Express's and this wasn't great. The food was cold and the service was mediocre. We would not return.
