We visited at lunchtime last Thursday. We were a large group of three adults and five children ranged no in age from 1 to 9. The restaurant is well set up to cater for children all of whom were given activity books and colouring pencils which kept them happy until the food arrived. The children's menu is excellent and good... More

We've visited this branch a few times. It's hard to get a table when there's something on in the millennium centre so it's better to book if there is. The food here doesn't seem quite as good as the ones in Cardiff town centre but there's not much in it, it's certainly not bad. The staff here are friendly and... More

I love pizza, spend a lot of time down Cardiff bay with my partner and we're slowly trying them all. Pizza express is a huge chain and i was shocked at just how many are around. The service was nice, prompt and cheerful. Restaurant looked nice, (apart from outside however im sure it improves in summer time). Our only issue... More

My wife and I enjoyed a nice lunch time meal at Pizza Express. Despite the restaurant being busy due to half term holiday families and despite too few staff on duty the meal was excellent and served with friendliness, although a little slow. Well done to the staff on that day!

We didn't know what to order so the waiter recommended Polo Forta and it was the best pizza I have ever eaten! I am coming back definitely to try another option with this tasty thin layer 😋 friendly staff and good atmosphere

I visited the restaurant today and must admit that the waitress was very unprofessional and unfriendly. Our table was asked to calculate a promotional discount ourselves. Surely this is the responsibility of the staff.. I was the last customer to pay on our table which resulted in me having to pay the extra money left on the bill in addition... More

I made a reservation through the Pizza Express website the night before. It was for a Thursday evening 6pm. Although my original booking was for three, we were only a couple in the end. I had sourced a 'two for one' voucher online which came in good use. We shared some classic dough balls, and then each had our own... More

Visited yesterday with a friend around 7pm but were turned away because of the theatre crowd and told to come back in 20 mins. They didn't take our name or book us in, so when we went back in and were told another 10 minutes we asked them to save us a table- our name was scribbled down quickly. Anyway... More
