To start with, i had been waiting to be to this place since long. Went on a Sunday, and the mistake i made was, i had not reserved a table. And then i was told 45 mins waiting time! *phew*
However, the courteous staff was able to arrange a table for 6 in 20 mins. We waited out (There is no waiting / sitting place). However, when they saw my grand mom, they wanted to arrange the table ground level. The good staff, did manage to arrange one, Thankfully, my grand mom did not have to climb stairs to level 1!
The ambiance is great at a go, when you enter, what catches attention is the open kitchen where the pizzalios as they are called, roll and bake fresh pizzas. Truly happy and delighted to see how they toss the dough in the air and flatten the pizza in the open kitchen.
Took my family (including grand-mom as stated above - she loves pizzas) to this place. My family has mixed preferences. The Jain counterpart (includes me) started with Bruschetta Piccante while the "normal" vegetarians ordered Garlic bread with Mozerella.
Both were very good to start with, the garlic bread, was stuffed. However, the portion size serves 2!
Then we called for a hot chocolate, was good.
For the main course, for jain pizza we ordered a margherita pizza (Romana which is thin crust) with extra toppings (olives for me are a must in pizzas, jalepenos, bell peppers etc.),
Also we ordered a plain margherita classic pizza for my Dad who does not eat veggies. He loved his pizza.
For the vegetarian counterparts, there was Melanzane Piccante, order only if you are fond of Eggplant!
The iced tea served is the lipton canned, can be avoided.
The overall experience was very good, all i felt was there are still dishes on the menu, i want to try out soon like the dough balls, the desserts (eggless options available).
So, to end with happy dinner time with family and yes, Pizza Express, i am going to see you very soon again.
