SquareMeal Review of Pizza Express Wapping

Times have changed since a fiorentina & a glass of Frascati was all you needed to impress a dinner date, but Pizza Express has changed with them. Formerly known for its intransigence – only serving a certain size of pizza (small!) & rarely varying the toppings – it now updates its menus regularly & gives its many loyal customers something to get excited about once again. Recent additions such as Marcona almonds tossed in sea salt, rosemary pizza bread & a larger ‘romana’ pizza with Calabrese sausage, fennel seeds, parsley & Grano Padano would bring cheer to even the snootiest of foodies. The ‘leggera’ pizza (with a missing centre, replaced by salad) & mini-desserts to accompany coffee are other inspired ideas. Service & interiors are always polished.
