Went to the PE restaurant on the Strand after a show, and was seated quickly, which is great. Servers were rushed, even though not full. Food came in good time, but was just ok. Not great. Have had better service and meals at other PEs. Was a Thursday night (25th May)

We stopped into this Pizza Express after a long afternoon of site seeing and were very disappointed. I rarely send food back but my risotto was so bad, it was inedible. My husband ordered pizza. It looked perfect but the cheese was "off". This restaurant was busy and was very pretty, but we were very disappointed with the food.

We visited this restaurant at 5pm before going to the theatre and it was getting busy but we were given a table of our choosing away from the door. The staff were very efficient and we could watch the food being prepared. We had visited Pizza Express restaurants before so knew the quality of the food would be good -... More

We visited on a busy Saturday lunch time, with 8 of us in our group. The service was good and the food was the quality you'd expect from Pizza Express- good! I had a birthday voucher for a free bottle of presseco, which was a lovely treat (so worth signing up to their emails). Also worth noting that you can... More

I had booked a group of 30 people but sadly, they hadn't written down the reservation so we were worried we couldn't eat there! But the staff worked incredibly to fit us in, even though they hadn't planned to have such a big group. The food came exceptionally quickly, and the staff were so helpful, understanding and kind.

This was our first visit to a Pizza Express but our five year old granddaughter decided we would eat there. A good selection of pizza and pasta - although I went for a chicken Cesar salad (dressing served separately)with polenta chips. The kids menu - three courses at about £7 - was good value and the portions just right. The... More

The food is good, although expensive - look out for the large discounts on line to make it a sensible price for their food. I have been several times and last time was poor service. Even though the place was almost empty we had to stand and wait until one of the several staff bothered to come and seat us.... More
