Went for Mothers Day with family, glad we had booked as it was extremely busy but the service as usual was faultless. Never been disappointed when dining at this restaurant.

If you’ve been to Pizza Express before, you’ll know all about their menus, offers and services. I wanted to leave this review to share our experience at one specific branch and one specific time. We took two of our great nieces to the Kendal branch early on Saturday evening. We’re glad we used the simple online booking service because every... More

Visited the day before Valentine's Day, the place was packed and they look really understaffed, despite this the service we had was impeccable, our waiter was called Jamie and he really was superb, we watched him take time at all his tables and made people feel very welcome! Well done, we will be back!!

I called in at lunchtime with my daughter. The place was bright and cheerful on a dull day. We shared 3 starters, my favourite being the salmon risotto, with a dessert each. Everything was beautifully cooked and presented with speedy friendly service. A very enjoyable stop on a shopping trip.

Unfortunately my experience wasn't the best. Went with family and we all had a starter and a main. The starters were lovely but our mains were a let down. Large paper thin pizzas with a sparse covering of toppings. They didn't taste of a great deal either. Drinks were super expensive £6.90 for a 660ml bottle of Peroni!!! Overall the... More

We went around 7pm and only just managed to get a table; tip book first if going around this time. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the food excellent. My Diavolo pizza made my eyes water but I thoroughly enjoyed it. We then had coffee with 3 small profiteroles smothered in caramel - heavenly. I'd definitely go again.

Have visited this restaurant several times for lunch and never been disappointed. Excellent service, attentive staff, good quality food, what more could on ask for. We hadn't booked yet were seated at a very nice table and considering it was busy we were not rushed. A most enjoyable experience. Thank-you to all the staff.

Booked online and the food was excellent again. Catered well for the small children in our group with colouring and activity sheets. Dough balls and antipasto as starters were tasty and the pizza as always was excellent. Just one issue with the recent pizza menu change, no seafood options which seems a shame. Red wine choice good and even though... More

So as per usual, myself and a group of friends turned up without a reservation. Luckily even though the place was busy we got a table! However the whole night was ruined when a main meal was missed off our order! The waitress (not the waiter that took the order). Didn't seem it strange when she handed out three main... More

Everything about our experience was very good. The staff were very friendly and attentive even though towards the end of our visit the restaurant had become quite busy. The pizzas we ordered were delicious. Service was prompt and we were tempted to have the dolcetti profiteroles with our coffee which were just enough of a sweet treat to end the... More
