This was a business lunch, we only ordered a main course and a drink, yet it took well over an hour to complete. The food was very good, usual pizza express standards, but we were so frustrated with the slow service. Our server was polite and friendly, however it took way too long for each task to be completed.

You always know what you are going to get and they often have discount offers. Good value. Staff are always friendly and you can get in and out without an extended lunch break.

Went here with a group of friends and thoroughly enjoyed the food. The service was efficient and friendly and there was a good choice of pizza and pasta on the menu.

My colleague and I popped in around 2.30pm and the it was quiet. I ordered the healthy chicken pizza and I must say it was a delight. I would definitely order this pizza again apparently less than 600 calories. The service was fast and friendly

I met my wife from work and we popped into the Pizza Express for a quick bite to eat before heading out. The bruschetta and olives to start were great and the pizza I had was one of the best I've ever had. The food was delicious and served timely with a smile, couldn't fault the experience.

Good food at a fair price, kids friendly: three course meal for less than £7. Gluten free and low calorie pizza. Can't fault anything at all. Well worth a visit.

Always welcoming with efficient staff and an interesting menu reflecting seasonal changes. Refreshing outside tables for summer or cosy interiors, this branch always delivers atmosphere and good value.

Just don't bother, the food was horrible. Friendly servers, but way off in terms of flavor. I cannot recommend, there was no saving grace to this completely flavorless, bland meal.

Neighbourhood Profile
City of London
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile in the world, the financial district known simply as “The City” is one of London's most historic and fascinating neighbourhoods. Here high rise office towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually every era in between, including Christopher Wren's glorious St.Paul's Cathedral, and John Soane's dauntingly classicist Bank of England. This neighbourhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.
