We stay round the corner for long weekends in London. On the last evening I buzz round to Pizza Express for a take-out which we eat out of the box, slouched in front of the telly box. Perfect. It is Pizza Express so the food is OK. Staffs herre are friendly and service is fast.

Always liked the Pizza Express, leisure time and hungry that is the place to have something decent. But, this time waiter brought one of the pizza partially burnt. I was trying to send it back but my niece said she can manage it and wi-ould not eat the whole pizza anyway.

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
