Came here for dinner as a treat for the kids and I wish we had stayed in with a takeaway. Why is everything so oily? The dips for the (tiny) dough balls - swimming in oil. The pizzas, base drenched in oil - how can this be when no oily toppings are ordered? Pizzas are now smaller than ever -... More

Popped in for lunch and usual good standard of pizza express, clean and tidy Pizzas were slightly overdone, but this happens from time to time

We had dough balls and pizzas. The dough balls were £4 each, pizzas were around £14 and sauv blanc was £20. I know it's a chain restaurant but it was understaffed with slow service and the pizzas were virtually tasteless. The staff didn't ask how the food was or offer anything extra like olive oil or to grind pepper. There... More

The food is nice, however it could be better. The service is medium (one waiter was very nice and friendly, the other seemed bored). The pizza took too long to be served. All can be improved.

Kennington branch is a pretty unlovely goldfish bowl, you would think being the only two customers in the place with four staff they could take one order correctly. Food arrived with main pasta dish completely wrong dish, then had to wait another 20 minutes for the right dish to be made, while having remind about salad order. Salad looks like... More

I dont understand what the fuss is with Pizza Express. Why do people want to eat food which is frozen and only warmed up for you in a restaurant - I grant you, you pay little money with all the promotions -50%, buy one get one £1 or -40% they run but still - you can simply buy frozen pizza...

Been going here on and off for 25 years. Has always been good value with good pizzas. Recently prices have been rising and quality of food reducing: good thin base (though higher price for thin: why?) but economical on toppings. Asked the supervisor and she said there is strict portion control, so this seems company policy. Appears less busy so... More

I have visited this Pizza Express a number of times over the last few years, most recently the 30th August, the Bank Holiday Sunday. We were slightly worried it might be closed but no, once again we were treated very well by the friendly staff and had a good meal. I can't usually finish my pizzas at home but my... More

As I came out from the toilet a female member of staff started shouted at me saying I was rude for using the toilet. I went to say that I will be in the restaurant in the next ten minutes.

Pizza Express is comfortingly middle of the road - for 30 years you've known what you're getting. However, on our last visit the staff seemed to disappear for 20 minutes - no one could get more drinks, or coffee, or a bill. On returning, and when asked, the waitress said: "We were all doing something." (Napping? Training? Praying?) This time... More
