dining at Pizza ExpressWhat is good about the Pizza Express chain of Italian restaurants is good quality food on a reliable menu.

We visited the Pizza Express in Langan Place, just a few minutes walk from Oxford Street on a Saturday afternoon, post lunch and before the evening rush. The service was a little slow and we had to ask for a children's menu. However when it did come – with colouring pencils and stickers – Harriet enjoyed the activities so much we had to ask for another to see what food was actually on offer for her. 

The Piccolo menu is £6.50 for three courses and a Bambinoccino. (An alternative for younger diners, if they are not sharing yours, is to have just the Piccolo main for £3.95.) Harriet chose the dough balls, and the pasta burro dish. Olivia and I ordered doughballs and olives which Harriet shared. We both went of the Leggera option – Padana and American Hot – as I never seem to finish a pizza and love the salad in the centre plus they are only 500 calories.

Our bill including a botle of house wine came to £51.40.

Pizza Express restaurants offer gluten meat and dairy free options.

Worth considering: Kids Pizza Making Parties at £11.95 per person

Anne Coates was given a voucher for a press visit. However Pizza Express did not know beforehand which restaurant would be reviewed.
