Pizza chains are pizza chains, but this particular one is perhaps a little different from the crowd. For a start the stylish, softly lit interior won the Lord Mayor's design competition here in 1996. There is not a fishing net, or a candle in a wine bottle to be seen anywhere (making this a refreshing change from many Italian restaurants)and the place seems almost too grand for a pizza restaurant. That is until you remember that Pizza Express has an interest in conservation, and donates money from certain pizzas on the menu to The National Trust Coastline Campaign and to the Venice in Peril Fund. The menu cannot be faulted for information on ingredients, and a separate menu is available with a breakdown of the calorie count, and protein, carbohydrate and fat content of every item, including drinks. This is probably the most relaxing, calm and stylish Pizza Express you will find. Note, however, that disabled access to the restaurant is difficult, and to the toilets is almost impossible.
