I like Pizza Express a lot and when I ate at the Great Portland St branch it was the service that stood out for me. My colleague brought her young baby and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. We had dough balls, garlic bread, leggera pizzas and coffee. Will definitely go there again. We went at 12 and were... More

After saying I'd prefer not to sit next to the door on a freezing cold night (when there were plenty of tables elsewhere), I was seated in an area where no one appeared to be serving. I waited six minutes before someone so much as asked if I wanted anything to drink, and the pizza was undercooked after waiting more... More

The pizza was, at best, average and overpriced. Toppings unremarkable and crust very mediocre. In a competitive arena like London, I was expecting much better quality. I would advise searching for a more "ma and pa" authentic pizzeria. The quality is bound to be better.

We went to Pizza Express early for lunch and to our delight they were open and ready to serve us at 11:45. The restaurant was empty because it was so early but it slowly filled up and became quite busy by the time we left. The staff are friendly and our order came quickly. The pizza was really yummy! The... More

Staff all friendly but my leggera veggie pizza was cool when it arrived and got cold within a minute. The place is all glass and hard surfaces and the shape of the room means there is no real 'heart'.

Very good food, warm and friendly environment Pizza Express has. It must be reflections of a great management team working in the background. Warmness started from the entrance and lasted till the exit. Located just beside Great Portland Street station this restaurant has a modern interior and look. Talking about food, I only ordered for a pizza (forgot the name... More
