I don't normally write reviews after visiting Pizza Expresses because their universal conformity means that they are never great and never dreadful but our experience last Saturday was the exception. Armed with a two courses for about £12 voucher we went here to the middle of Soho. The staff, in particular, were excellent and everything else was well above average.... More

The food was fine and what you expect from Pizza Express - always love a padana! The service was good with friendly staff. The restaurant is very small and really cramped though, I felt very penned in.

The service was friendly but that's the most positive I can be, i thought sloe prosecco was barbecue of the sloe gin added, but i think it should be renamed slow prosecco. Eventually it arrived as plain prosecco. When I asked if the sloe gin was added at the table, the waitress apologised and returned with 2 raspberries on a... More

We went to Pizza Express for dinner in Jan 2017. We waited a very long time to be seated even though there were plenty of empty tables around, although some of those tables looked like they hadn't been cleared and cleaned. Customers actually left because the waitresses were taking so long to seat people. There were two waitresses and a... More

Visited with family as we went to see a play near by. The food was okay, but expensive for the quality. However, they offer gluten free pizza bases which was why we chose the restaurant. The layout is terrible and you feel like you are in a shop window

Me and my boyfriend ate here on New Years Eve. The restaurant wasn't as busy as we imagined and we got sat down straight away, as did everyone else who walked through the door. We were served drinks right away and everything was going well. We placed our order with the waiter around 8pm. We both ordered from the new... More

While eating here on Sunday night we spotted a cockroach strolling along the floor in the downstairs section !! I've eaten in many places in London & this is truly a first. Waitress seemed all too familiar with it, simply picked it up with some tissue & threw in the bin. Bathrooms also in very poor condition (no paper/soap etc),... More

Birthday treat turned out to be a disaster. Starters arrived 30 mins after being ordered and were okay. The pizzas arrived about 25 mins after starters were finished and The bases were very hard to cut through. I was advised by a female member of staff that they were meant to be crispy - crispy would not be how I... More

We were seated next to the window, I wish we weren't . Slow service, the waitress could not answer our question about their latest promotion. A group of 10 guys were drinking outside in front of the window,being very loud, breaking a bottle, trying to "talk" to the restaurant guest through the window. Then 4 of them ran into restaurant...

Staying in Soho

Neighbourhood Profile
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighbourhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
