We called in here after a recording at the Radio Theatre and were not disappointed. We chose olives and their new Cod Crocchette to start, which were both lovely. Then had the Classic Sloppy Giuseppe and Romana La Reine (my favourite), both were very nice but they seemed to go cold very quickly. We skipped dessert and went for liquor... More

We popped into this Pizza Express around 6.00 pm over the Easter period. Staff were very pleasant & helpful & within a matter of minutes we had ordered our meals. All the food was really good & cooked extremely well. My wife, who has a gluten-free diet, was very well catered for. When we were ready to leave our waitress,... More

You cannot go wrong with Pizza Express. I love the thin crust pizza and never tire of going to any Pizza Express in London.

I like Pizza Express a lot and when I ate at the Great Portland St branch it was the service that stood out for me. My colleague brought her young baby and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. We had dough balls, garlic bread, leggera pizzas and coffee. Will definitely go there again. We went at 12 and were... More

After saying I'd prefer not to sit next to the door on a freezing cold night (when there were plenty of tables elsewhere), I was seated in an area where no one appeared to be serving. I waited six minutes before someone so much as asked if I wanted anything to drink, and the pizza was undercooked after waiting more... More

The pizza was, at best, average and overpriced. Toppings unremarkable and crust very mediocre. In a competitive arena like London, I was expecting much better quality. I would advise searching for a more "ma and pa" authentic pizzeria. The quality is bound to be better.

We went to Pizza Express early for lunch and to our delight they were open and ready to serve us at 11:45. The restaurant was empty because it was so early but it slowly filled up and became quite busy by the time we left. The staff are friendly and our order came quickly. The pizza was really yummy!
