The food is nice, I recommend the padana. However the service is very very slow and the staff can be rude.

We have been many times to this restaurant, and generally know what to expect. This time however we were very disappointed with the presentation of the food. We were two couples; we ordered two risottos, one canelloni and one chicken with penne. The two risottos arrived first, and were nearly cold. The dishes were stone cold. They were sent back,...

Standard food and drinks as expected. Establishment has benefited from a refurbishment. Staff efficient and friendly although cooking times were a bit on the slow side.

The pizza's in my opinion are better than any you come across in Italy. I have been here 60-70 times and I have only had to complain once wher my garlic butter wasn't garlicky enough. I always have the dough balls, american hottest pizza and cheese cake. I truly love the place. We always go around 3-5pm when its never... More

We came here for my Sister-in-Law and Niece's Birthdays and were all thoroughly unimpressed. Things stated well and we were sat all together promptly for a booking we had made a few weeks ago. Drinks came promptly and food was ordered by 13:20. The children's starters came out about 50 minutes later and we then had to wait another 25... More

Jesus Lane Pizza Express is a beautiful building and I used to love to visit but its plummeted into the depths of desperation. Everything looks tired and tatty and as for the toilets...enough said. The food itself was O.K but served practically cold. The service was extremely slow. This restaurant is not the well oiled machine that it used to... More

I was especially impressed with the childrens Pasta Bolognese They were also given colouring packs and chefs hats to keep them entertained. The adults... More

Have been visiting this restaurant for 23 years, pizza express for me have always been the best pizza's. Over the last few visits I have felt the overall standard of food taste, quality and service has dropped. Visited again recently with family and was shocked by the experience. We waited 30mins even to get asked for a drink. The whole... More
