Dined here after the theatre and can't complain. I had the Leggara Padana skinny pizza and it was delicious. Service was quick and efficient despite the level of business being so high during my visit - customers were constantly walking into the restaurant. My sister left the restaurant and forgot to pick up her bag. The staff kindly kept this... More

Normally guaranteed (with Pizza Express) good food, good service and quick. We had a party of 11 with four children. We had booked a table but was told to come back in 20 minutes, which we did, then waited over an hour at the door. We ordered all the food, four of six starters turned up, we asked after a... More

Been before and was ok but this time pretty poor- my meal was cold so they asked if I wanted it reheating or new - asked for new but pretty sure it was reheated. No apology or offer of free drink so ended up wife and kids eating then waiting 20 mins for my food to arrive. Every time got... More

We visited as part of a package with a comedy club. Included was a starter (dough balls or garlic bread), a main course (any standard pizza) and a beer or glass of wine. Looks like they put all people who have booked using a package on the basement floor which is probably sensible from a service perspective. My dough balls... More

Once agin Pizza Express delivered the fantastic food I have learn to expect. The waitress was very attentive and helped with our voucher queries we had which resulted in a great deal. Thanks.

Great service and met our requests. Attended with 4 teenagers and they were all happy. The request for parsley being removed was met and they even found coriander for us too. Managed to cope with a slow eater too.

I would give zero star to this horrible pizza express branch if I could. Every other Pizza Express has been a lovely experience up until today. After several months of using our o2 vouchers in every Pizza Express branch in London without any trouble, we were suddenly met with the rudest and most intolerable staff management. The manager was unprofessional... More

Clean, fresh and well looked after. Fantastic service from polite and attentive staff and a well rounded menu suitable for adults and fussy veggie kids. The orange juice was gorgeous as was the pizza. A great experience.

First time we have been here. The service was ok as it was not busy when we arrived. Ordered our food. We both had a pizza which was very doughy. I had to much tomato sauce on my pizza. But my friend's pizza was dry and had hardly any tomato sauce. We wont be coming back here again.

Thank Kat F
