Pizza Express Golden Cross Oxford Absolutely Lovely Lunch at Pizza Express Oxford. Service: We were expertly looked after by Lucia, a professional and friendly waitress who was careful to give us everything exactly as we wanted despite the fact that the restaurant was very busy and she had to attend to many tables. There were 3 of us and we... More

A reliable choice and the pizzas were as good as ever. It's a little hidden away off Cornmarket Street in the Golden Cross Arcade, but it's a very historic area (the restaurant is on the upper floor of a 15th Century building) so well worth seeking out.

A lovely evening spent here with my friends after a long weekend in Oxfordshire. The food was amazing!! I had the sour dough bread with red onions and mushrooms. It was flavoursome and soft. My friends had chicken and red pepper pizza not to spicy but the right heat. Will definitely be back next time where here and staff where... More

This restaurant had more options for my (I have Celiac Disease) than any other pizza restaurant I've come across. The pizza was delicious, and the service was excellent. They also have good wines available at great prices, and the atmosphere is very comfortable and fun. My husband is not a Celiac and had a "normal" pizza. He raved about his... More

We had dinner here on Valentine's day. The restaurant was busy as you would expect but service was still absolutely excellent. Food was great as ever from Pizza Express and we had a lovely evening. The gentleman at the next table was dining alone and the waitress made him feel very comfortable which was lovely as (particularly on Valentine's day)... More

Grade 1 listed building, tucked off Cornmarket with an access through to the Covered Market, Pizza Express occupies some fabulous rooms. 15th century buildings; there are 16th century wall paintings upstairs and all is sympathetic to the original hotel function. This is a decent pizza express: the menu you'd expect with good service. Watch out for the many different offers... More

Waitress was lovely. Place was characterful, clean and in a nice quiet courtyard. Enjoyed my 'usual', prompt fresh and tasty. Pizza Express has never failed to deliver so far in my experience.

On a very rainy day, we popped into pizza express to have lunch and were greeted with 'Have you booked a table?' we replied no, have you got a table for 2? and the server pointed to a table without saying anything, very cold and unfriendly attitude. After looking at the menu at our table for 5 minutes, no-one came... More

My friend & I visited this restaurant for lunch at the weekend. It's a little out the way, off one of the main shopping streets ,& you have to go upstairs to the restaurant ( as the ground floor is reserved for private parties etc). There was no atmosphere & the whole place looked like it needed a good clean.... More
