We love you mums!


We always knew that mums know best, and now the experts at Mumsnet have proved us right. We’ve been awarded a Mumsnet Gold badge for our family-friendly service, atmosphere and menu – the mums’ group’s highest accolade. And we’ve won the award just in time for Easter, the perfect time to join us for a lovely family pizza feast.

Impressing these in-the-know mums is no mean feat, of course. They visited us undercover with their little ones, put our family-friendly facilities to the test and delved into our kids’ menu, all in the name of research. And now the results are in.

We’re delighted that mums found PizzaExpress friendly and helpful when visiting us with children. They said that our team made them feel very welcome, as well as providing any extra things that they needed to make their visit comfortable.

Join us for the Easter holidays

Our Piccolo kids’ menu received a big Mumsnet thumbs-up, too. Created specially for little ones, we teamed up with the Children’s Food Trust to make it healthier, as well as tasty. The resulting, delicious menu has less salt, fat and calories, includes gluten-free dishes and options for children with nut allergies. We’ve also launched ‘Create Your Own’, so that children can choose more, less or none of any ingredient – fun for kids, and simpler for parents. Plus as well as tasting great, our Piccolo menu was rated good value for money.

It’s also the little PizzaExpress details that make a difference, such as kids being able to watch our pizzaiolos making pizza in the kitchen, having enough space for buggies, and making an effort to provide parents with the bill quickly so that you can get on your way. Plus our pack of Piccolo goodies and colouring pencils was a hit with grown-ups and little ones alike.

So thank you, Mumsnet! Look out for our Mumsnet Family Friendly Gold badge next time you pop in to see us – and we hope to see you for a post-Easter egg hunt feast.
