For starters Jack had dough balls from the Piccolo menu, whilst we had 2 brushettas and cheese dough balls. Currently Pizza Express have teamed up with Ice Age on the Piccolo menu so the activity pack was based around this which Jack absolutely loved. The activities kept him entertained whilst we awaited our food and in between starters and mains coming out.
For our mains Jack had the American pizza from the Piccolo menu, I had the Calzone Classico, Dad had the Soho 65 whilst Nanny had Barbacoa Romana. Obviously you must eat pizza when in pizza express, well its not a law or anything but it's their specialty. Our mains were very filling and full of flavour. Impressively Jack polished off the whole of his starter and pizza and was still keen to have a pudding which is really rare so it must have been tasty.
After a short wait upon completion of our mains a waitress came to clear the tables and offer us the desert menu. I love deserts so this was a no-brainer for me and we all ended up with one. Again from the Piccolo menu Jack chose the chocolate brownie which came served with a Bambinoccino, whilst I had the Chocolate Glory, Nanny had the Eton Mess Cheesecake, whilst Dad had the Leggera Sorbet served with a hot chocolate.
After this, as the restaurant got busier we were struggling to have the attention of a waitress. We waited a good 15 minutes in which time the children got bored and were restless. Eventually we decided to leave the table and find a waitress and eventually left. Up until this point we had excellent service from the restaurant so it was such a shame for the later part to let it down.
Despite the ending we had a lovely enjoyable time at Pizza Express and the menu had a great choice. Jack loved the Ice Age activity pack, and I did too as it kept him amused for a while. We would definitely go back and are looking forward to planning another trip.
