It is a Pizza Express - I assume you know what you are going to get. It does not disappoint. In fact this is my favourite Pizza Express in Edinburgh. Nice location by the river and good for eating outside in summer. This is a very good example of the chain.

I've come here with friends quite often. Nice food, nice staff and good selection of drinks. It's not an amazing place, it's nice but just a typical pizza express.

Arrived tonight to order some take away food.... waited 20mins then the waiter came over ( was only one third full)..... when asked if I was ok and replied I was not impressed with the service the waiter said; "Well why don't you leave...

Fort Kinnaird, Edinburgh Went for dinner with husband & 8 year old son. Waitress got order wrong, didn't even apologise. She was very rude. I asked pizza with hottest peppers but they put them all on my husbands pizza so mine was tasteless & his was too hot. When we complained they just didn't care. We won't be back ever... More

My partner and I have been to many pizza express joints around the country and we have never been disappointed. I had a salad here for a change which was bigger than I expected! But it was mouthwatering. It is a bit deceptive as the place is bigger than it looks too, and we would highly recommend it if people... More

I know these pizza's come over £10 a pop, however, if you like rocket, goats cheese, contemporary pizzas like this then this is heaven. Stockbrige Pizza Express is often full of kids, just saying.

It's an average to good pizza parlour. Cheap and cheerful and ideal if you just want a quick and filling bite to eat.

Great service, staff are friendly and quick to serve but give you time and space to decide what to order. We ordered two pizzas one under 500 calories and a red chilli pollo pizza. Both very tasty and washed down with a nice glass of wine. We also had a 241 voucher which they are giving away during August. However... More
