Had lunch with the family. Typical Pizza Express really, the place was rammed, wait not too bad, pizza was pretty average, very soggy in the middle. Side salad slathered in sauce which was quite tart. Obviously something kicked off with the staff whilst we were there as the manager had some bloke outside - he was smoking, he was moaning... More

Popped in here after a days shopping and found it busy. The staff were working under pressure but did cope quite well. They realised that everything was taking a long time and so tried to keep everyone happy. Food was as expected.

We went to milton Keynes shopping center on Christmas substitute day. After waiting 20 minutes in the queue we have ordered two pizzas. Pizzas are more and less pizza express quality, not so glamorous but not disappointing either. However you should only go there when you are full because by the time your order arrives you would feel hungry again.... More

Attentive waiter at the start. What happened to the "Gardinera" pizza? The new "Pienta" in "Romans" style, even with Mozzarella added, was a very poor alternative. Scraping the prolifically applied spinach to one side, the other toppings were indeed scarce! A different waiter had to be called over to request garlic oil.The pizza dough quality was poor and the whole... More

Called in at short notice as we had a couple of hours free with friends. We were seated straight away and had a very attentive waitress. Drinks were served very quickly and the starters followed soon after. The mains were nice and three people served these to us. Over all the restaurant was very good along with the food. We... More

I have made this account just to praise a waitress' service. My daughter works in the hospitality service and says that trip advisor is a good way to say thank you and give the waitress the recognition she deserves. I have to say that the waitress who served me last night surpassed all of my expectations. I have been here... More

What's happened to Pizza Express pizza dough? We haven't been here for a while but these pizza's tasted sweet, like they'd added sugar to the dough. It's just not needed - quite the reverse, these pizza's ended up tasting naff. My wife was asked if she wanted her egg well cooked on the Fiorentina - it came out half raw... More

Nothing majorly wrong just typical restaurant fare that seems to do well in this country. A bit depressing actually! Did not have some items on the menu we ordered and didn't offer any apology.

We enjoyed our meal here on a Saturday afternoon, what you can expect from any Pizza Express. For starter we had the dough balls formaggi and although this was nice, the price for the size of it is a bit over the top! Our mains arrived in good time, both hot and tasty, love the calzone classico! Good service but... More

The restaurant was busy as expected for Saturday tea time, we got seated quickly and we had our drinks & food order taken within five minutes. The problem was the dirty floors, dirty stairs, bad smells and fruit fly bothering us when we were eating. It has gone downhill and we won't be revisiting!!
