Pizza Express on Devonshire Street is in the heart of Sheffield’s lively city centre. This well-established brand has over 400 locations worldwide and has been serving up authentic Italian food since it was founded nearly 50 years ago.
Its original London location was the first to serve pizza on the UK’s high street, and has transformed our gastronomic culture entirely. In its beautiful Devonshire Street outpost, you’ll find a balance has been struck as the restaurant pays homage to its past while looking to innovate in the future. The clean, bright interior is a perfect setting for any kind of meal, be it a relaxed date night or a big celebration with friends and family.
The food is famous here at Pizza Express for a reason, and the staff execute the dishes perfectly. To start, try their bestselling dough balls dipped in the tasty garlic butter or pesto, or go for the new starter of risotto fresco, an oak-roasted peppered salmon fillet flavoured with garlic and parsley in a creamy white wine risotto. To follow, go for the summery super food salad with avocado, pomegranate, butternut squash and more, or opt for the warming wintery option of the spicy Diavolo pizza with hot spiced beef, pepperoni, and Tabasco with your choice of hot green, jalapeño or roquito peppers depending on how hot you like it! If you fancy a dessert, we’d recommend the mini-sized dolcetti options: the fantastic puddings condensed into a manageable portion for those too full for a whole pudding, served with your choice of hot drink.
Pizza Express is fantastic for those who need gluten-free options, as any pizza or pasta can be adapted to suit you, or you can go for the naturally gluten-free options like Melanzane Parmigiana, a pasta-free layered dish of cheese and aubergine with a tomato sauce. They also cater very well for those looking to cut calories without compromising on taste with their lighter pizza and dessert options.
Students can enjoy a UniDays + NUS discount here. Please contact the restaurant for more information.
