Went here for my son's 11th birthday. Not overly busy considering it was a Friday evening. Pizzas and starters really tasty. Two course meal for 9.95 was excellent value and the house wine was reasonable. When we mentioned it was my son's birthday they provided cake for him at dessert, which was a nice touch. Very nice waiting staff and... More

Pizza Express is just not what it used be -- and service was very slow. Food average -- won't be going again anytime soon. Far prefer Croma.

Tasty pizza inspired by pizzas served in Rome. Tried Peroni Gran Reserve, which was expensive but tasted great. Only down side was the £1.80 for a couple of red onion slices. I downloaded a code which gave 25% discount of food, so overall not bad value.

Really busy (show on at Arena just around the corner )but still served quickly and great tasting food. Service was first class despite the place being rammed. (Served by Spanish gentleman- a credit to the place!)

I was in Manchester with my 6 year old and decided popping in here. 4.15 on a Saturday, already very busy. The manager was obviously busy but had time for everyone, having a joke with the kids and a very calming influence. Not long to wait and we sat down. The kids menu at Pizza Express is incredible! £6.95 for... More

We did get OK food, but as fast as we had passed on the dessert, we were offered the bill. We haden't even finished our drinks.
