Really lovely. Nice friendly atmosphere. Maitre D and male waiter very handsome. They were as hot and spicy as the pizza! Catherine lovely! Chefs in their stripey T-shirts looked like they had just escaped jail. Lol. Oh and the flat white martinis were excellent. Can you tell?

Absolutely brilliant service, best pizza express I've been to. I was served by a blonde manager by the name of Sophie, she was very accommodating & made it a pleasurable experience, due to this I will return again & also recommend a friend! 10/10

Was very good food and excellent service. Did not have to wait long for a table even though it was busy as they were good at clearing up quickly Would be happy to eat there again if in the area.

My husband and I have visited this restaurant a few times, and despite not being particularly satisfied previously we decided to give it another chance. As before, the service was average, my starter plate was whisked away from me whilst I still had my mouth full and our mains were put down straight after. The pizzas were undercooked and nothing...

Grandparents, mum, and 1-year old granddaughter out for Saturday lunch. The food was good, and granddaughter's bolognaise was a large portion which she enjoyed. What made the visit so good was the interaction with and the friendliness of the staff. Pizza Express offers a standardized menu at a good price, but when the staff are as good as this, it... More

Loved the restaurant - the food is great as always, but what makes it so special is the way staff makes you feel - always with a natural smile on their faces, serving everyone with ease, making an effort with kids and attending your every whim! The place itself is stunning - modern and clean, finished in techno-theme art and... More

We are here after visiting the Xmas market. Found the staff very friendly and helpful. All of us had 3 courses and really enjoyed each course. Really good food and nice atmosphere. Would highly recommend.

Very friendly staff and spacious seating. though it is close to town you dont have the hustle and bustle to get there. I like that I can get somewhere with ease instead of trying to get through the crowd and you dont have people walking pass the window constantly. I would recommend for anyone who likes to eat in peace.

A drive home from Nottingham warranted ya stopping off for some lunch and a break in St Albans so we visited here for a meal. Friendly staff, good food and drink as usual. What you expect from a Pizza Express. Thank you
