Ever since 1965 when our founder, Peter Boizot, opened our first restaurant in Soho, the same PizzaExpress values of great food, evocative music, and distinctive design have remained in our DNA. This is one recipe we’ve never changed, and today we take the same pride in offering great hospitality and unforgettable experiences.
When it comes to PizzaExpress ingredients, we never compromise. After all, they’re the foundation for our great flavours. The same goes for our commitment to bringing fresh ideas to the table – whether in the form of the American Hot, Romana, or Leggera pizza, Dough Balls, or Peroni beer.
A passion for music
The ingredients for a great dining out experience? Delicious food, friendly people and, crucially, great atmosphere. It’s an approach we’ve kept on our menu since our founder’s passion for jazz put it there.
Peter was a lover of the arts, and wanted customers to have a great experience when they visited PizzaExpress. So he quickly brought his friend and Italian designer, Enzo Apicella, into the fold to visually bring them to life.
Over the years, our pursuit of excellence has won us many awards – and across all aspects of our business.
