First time I'd been in a pizza parlour for over 20 years. Must go more often. Some of the bench seating was badly torn and looking very tatty. But the service was ok and the pizza very tasty. And the Italian beer was excellent. My only negative comment would be to the guy with the beard who collected the money... More

We came here before going to see the pantomime at the Theatre Royal. I'd booked a table through the app as there were 6 of us. We were seated quickly and then our order was taken pretty quickly. We'd all ordered starters but the adults' all came but there was no sign of the children's food. It took us a... More

We were a family of 10 using this restaurant on New Year's Eve after a visit to the Theatre Royal to see "The Emperor's New Clothes". I had booked using the automated telephone system but there was no facility to say we needed 2 highchairs so I went to the restaurant before they opened to make this request. A lovely... More

Had a lovely day out with the family, got to lunch time and as you'd expect everywhere was very busy. We went to pizza express and stood behind a family waiting to be seen. It was fairly busy but we could see at least 6+ empty tables. A lady came up and spoke to the family in front and said... More

You know what you are getting at pizza express and it didn't disappoint. Great service and food is great as usual. Obviously accept Tesco vouchers which is always a bonus. Location at the bottom end of town is ok, but no free parking unlike the other pizza express at vue.

We were here to eat before going to the Theatre Royal as it was so close. Having lived in Plymouth we knew to book in advance which turned out to be the right thing to do as they were turning people away at 6pm. Any restaurant near the theatres will be busy early but once the theatre crowd have gone... More

It was the only restaurant nearby who had tables available on a wet Saturday night. Staff were young and not bright. Food was soggy and tasteless, even the dough-balls lacked any garlic. Drinks are hugely expensive so best ask for water to prevent their scamming ways. Utterly soulless atmosphere, we couldn't wait to leave, But had to correct our bill... More

If you are a group of friends meeting up, this is a place where the staff can cope. We were a group of 18 and the staff were very pleasant and helpful. The food was acceptable - some meals being superb others average. The decor is rather utilitarian but is also clean and reasonably priced. I have no complaints but... More

We booked a table for 16.45, making sure we had time for our meal prior to a show at Plymouth Pavilions. Upon arrival, the restaurant was super busy and people who had not booked were being turned away. We were seated, and our order was taken but there was a very long wait on food and in between courses. It... More

The food, as usual, was good and came out in a timely fashion, however, the service was questionable. We had to ask multiple times to get another bottle of wine and even more times to get more water. As a table of 8, one jug of water was clearly not enough yet it took an entire meal for our server... More
