Came here for lunch. Staff friendly and courteous. This is obviously a chain so the menu is standard, but portions are good and the food very tasty. I had antipasto followed by a pizza. Definitely full and contented. Thanks

Went to pizza express after going to the theatre. Was the first time we've ever been and my 4yr old gave the following review: J - mummy, does express mean fast? Like the express train in thomas? Me - yes. J - this pizza isn't express, it's really slow. In total it took just over 2 hours for us to... More

I ordered the Margherita Bufala, pizza to big for the plate so very awkward to cut, also pizza very soggy and tasteless, waiter didn't ask how our food was- they seemed very short staffed, it took 10 minutes to get us the bill, overall not impressed.

Great salmon risotto as a starter. and great pizzas. My wife particularly enjoyed the Leggera Pollo ad Astra - the 'ring' pizza filled with salad: great for those with small appetites or watching the calories. Service was great. The whole meal took two hours, which feels long, but I don't recall feeling impatient. But..... the restaurant is looking tired: paintwork... More

First time I'd been in a pizza parlour for over 20 years. Must go more often. Some of the bench seating was badly torn and looking very tatty. But the service was ok and the pizza very tasty. And the Italian beer was excellent. My only negative comment would be to the guy with the beard who collected the money... More

We came here before going to see the pantomime at the Theatre Royal. I'd booked a table through the app as there were 6 of us. We were seated quickly and then our order was taken pretty quickly. We'd all ordered starters but the adults' all came but there was no sign of the children's food. It took us a... More

We were a family of 10 using this restaurant on New Year's Eve after a visit to the Theatre Royal to see "The Emperor's New Clothes". I had booked using the automated telephone system but there was no facility to say we needed 2 highchairs so I went to the restaurant before they opened to make this request. A lovely... More
