What a lovely experience. It's not often I put finger to pad and give a chain restaurant this type of review. From the waitress to the food, it flowed and made for a lovely night. We shared a salad and pizza and to top it all, a voucher from O2 for a main at £5 each, £13 off the bill.... More

Went Thursday night with my friend. They did say there was a 45 minute wait for food, we said OK as not in hurry. Shown to table and didn't have to wait long at all. Staff nice food excellent as always. Have to say this is one of my favorite places to eat. Superb as always.

After previously visiting a pizza express else where we decided to try the one in Braintree and were very disappointed. It didnt feel family friendly and children's desserts were missing parts. Food was good but service was quite abrupt

My friend and I go out for a meal every week. We decided to go to Pizza Express as we saw they had a discount voucher. The restaurant was not busy when we arrived around 7pm. We ordered and the waitress was pleasant enough, and after 2 courses and several soft drinks (all of which was quite nice) we asked... More

Been eating in Pizza Express restaurants for over forty years. Without doubt this is the low point in service. Needed to ask for cutlery twice, also glasses to pour our drinks into! Strange the glasses didn't come with the drinks! Trying to get our bill at the end of our meal, turned into a trial of endurance. We will not... More

I will say firstly that I have NEVER had a bad meal at Pizza Express an this trend has continued. What I like is that you can take ingredients off your chosen pizza and replace tem with ones you like. I opted for a veggie pizza with rocket but can't stand that so had roquito peppers instead. My fiancee can't... More
