Usual standard of food and service that you come to expect at a Pizza Express. We wanted a simple and quick meal at a reasonable price and it gave us exactly what we wanted.

I spent an unscheduled visit to The Pizza Express in the centre of Peterborough. A fantastic panorama of the heart of the city as my wife and I looked out of the window, A sweeping view of St John's Church, The Guildhall, Cathedral Square and looming over the skyline, the massive arches of the beautiful West Front of Peterborough Cathedral....

Out in the City I suggested Pizza instead of going home to cook. What a wise choice. We were quickly attended to and orders taken. Drinks arrived followed shortly by the pizza. A dessert was irresistible of course. This was a good decision and onr to be repeated again soon.

Good service from start to finish -this chain is somewhere we eat regularly - however starters were disappointing - calamari over cooked and the mushroom bruschetta was heavy on the bechmel sauce light on the mushrooms and the base was very dark brown due to being over-grilled - pizzas were better and very tasty. Overall average - shame as we... More

First visit to pizza express and definitely will not be returning, nothing particularly bad except the choice on the menu. I would have thought being called pizza express there would be a wide variety but I couldn't seem to find anything I liked. Also seemed over priced, there is ask Italian and prezzo right round the corner that is better... More

Big grease stain on glass and the place is empty so cannot blame it on rush. Food was nice but plates and glasses are disgustingly dirty. Cannot understand how can they afford this!!!

Had a lunch on Sunday and the meal was horrible. The service was on the same level as well, it looks like the staff does not care about their job. Calamari were oily and tasteless and we ordered 2 different pizzas which tasted the same. Poor quality food at high prices. Will not return
