Pizza Express - St Albans

11 Verulam Road, St Albans, AL3 4DA

Pizza Express remains a hugely popular bedrock of casual eating. Its popularity is testimony to the fact that across the country, they have restaurants where you will always be guaranteed a good nosh, with children's tastes being well catered for. Pizza Express has gone even more Roman, and following the success of that particular example of listening to their public have introduced Romana pizzas, including the scorching Etna and the hearty Siciliana. These pizzas are now thinner, bigger and crispier, and if that sounds like a marketing line, it is. However, unlike many such lines, this one is true, and their quality is always consistent, though cleverly they have still managed to retain a homemade feel to their pizzas.

As an alternative to pizza, try their pollo pesto - cavatappi pasta with torn chicken breast, mushrooms, red onions and mozzarella in a creamy gruyere, parmesan and pesto sauce and finished with grana padano - or the niçoise salad with mixed leaves, yellowfin tuna, free range egg, green beans, potatoes and tomatoes with olives, anchovies, capers and house dressing.

Many of the big chains have come a long way, and Pizza Express is certainly amongst them. One of the first to be quoted on the Stock Exchange - in 1993 - Pizza Express is not a franchise operation and retains tight control through its own staff.

Their wine list - though short - contains some surprisingly good offerings, especially their intense Australian Chardonnay, and a big, full-bodied Merlot from Cusumano, Sicilia.

REVIEWS OF Pizza Express - St Albans

Jane Thomas (1 May 2009)

One of the best meals I've ever had - delicious pizza followed by dessert and attentive friendly service. I only went out to Pizza Express because of the current 'buy one get one free' offer and am so glad I did. I had one of the new legera pizza-salads - a pizza with a hole in the middle filled with salad - so I got the best of both worlds and a healthier option so no guilt when I went for dessert. I had the new gelato or Italian ice cream offered in coffee, lemon, chocolate vanilla and the 2 I went for - strawberry and pistachio - which were so delicious and creamy! - Just like the stuff I had on holiday in Italy. The service was really great - our waitress was very friendly, efficient and helpful - and even knew how many calories and ww points were in my pizza, which was great. I'll definitely be returning soon and encourage others to as well.

Sadly, one of the most disappointing restaurants in St Albans. Our table was filthy and our waitress was disinterested. We wondered if we had caught them on a bad day so we returned a few months later, sadly it was even worse second time around. With so many amazing Italian restaurants in the area, we won't be returning here again.
