Not many places to eat in Bloomsbury on a Sunday night, and we decided on Pizza Express as we wanted something light. Have not been to a Pizza Express for years (we make lovely pizza at home). We discovered the Romana on the menu - thin crust crispy pizza so ordered this as this is what we really like from... More

First time I've been to a Pizza Express for quite some time. Prices seem slightly higher than competitors to me which is fine if the quality is up to scratch. I found this to be distinctly average though. Went for a Pizza rather than something else, assuming that would be their speciality. Had a Pepperoni as I usually do. It... More

Staying at the Bedford Hotel Southampton Row London poses a pleasing challenge. Where to eat? So many attractive restaurants within 100 meters of the hotel. How to choose? Indian.. been there before good.. but not cheap, if you go for the 'full monty'. Subway... mmmmm maybe a bit too basic... I need some kind of reward today! Ok skip the... More

We dropped with minimal expectations, looking only for a quick pizza in a chain restaurant. We were pleasantly surprised with an excellent pizza, which came precisely as we ordered. The service was equally excellent; one of the waiters helped us cut the pizza when we found it difficult. The atmosphere is like most fast food establishments, but that is certainly... More

We had 2 pizza's and a Bosco salad with chicken with wine and beer as the restaurant was next to our hotel. We have been to many Pizza Express's and this wasn't great. The food was cold and the service was mediocre. We would not return.

We had a quick supper before the talk and it was the nearest to the place. As it was located in the middle of the tourist hotels, we had a premonition. The service was quick and friendly, but the food was below par. We ordered Salad Nicoise and Pollo Salad. Both had dead, wilted leaves, tasteless tomato, undercooked dough sticks,... More

I visited here with work in late September. My pizza was good and the service friendly. The restaurant was quiet at first but got busy. The service was well organised and food quick. I'd go back.

We walked out after ten minutes of being ignored by the staff in the near empty restaurant. We presume it was because we had a two for one main meals voucher. The woman on duty spent her time chatting up the guy on the till and the young male waiter deliberately avoided making eye contact with us. Went home, put... More

Popped in for a quick lunch. Tasty pizzas and decent amount of toppings - hot out the oven. Service was good and staff were friendly.

Good pizza's, we were asked what style we liked: thin or thick. I prefer the thin ones (Romana) and within 10 minutes the pizza's arrived. It was like we expected, both the size and topping (not niggardly) is OK. Tasteful but not very crispy. Depending on what you are used to it's probably average for Italians and good for others...
