Pizza Express can be found on King Street in the New Walk area of Leicester city centre. This nationwide favourite is in a great spot, just a few minutes walk from the Leicester Tigers stadium, the LCFC King Power Stadium and Leicester train station. Parking is easy in this spot, as well as free on Sunday and in the evenings, making it tempting for a city visit no matter what you’re in the mood for. The restaurant is also near the Curve Theatre and De Montfort Hall, which lends itself well to a variety of Leicester occasions.
This light, airy restaurant is spacious enough to cater for any size of party, and always has a lively, friendly and fun atmosphere. Pizza Express’ laid-back approach to high-quality Italian food and service makes it suitable for a casual catch-up with a few friends, a quick lunchtime meeting with colleagues, or a romantic date night, as the well-trained staff will make sure that your meal goes without a hitch.
Pizza Express is appropriately named, so head here for pizza prepared with love, amazing ingredients and highly skilled chefs. Start your meal off with a dish of tender roasted tomatoes or Sicilian olives, followed by a sharing platter of dough balls with a trio of dips: garlic butter, pesto, and n’duja (a spicy pot of softened sausage and oil). For your main course, go for one of the fresh, fragrant salads, or try the classic, yet gluten-free, dish of oak-roasted salmon fillets and garlic in a creamy white wine risotto. If you fancy something meaty, try the chicken with spirals of fresh cavatappi pasta in a four cheese and pesto sauce. However, if you’re heading here for a pizza, you’ll be delighted with the calzone, classic pizzas, light Leggera pizzas or the thin and crispy Romana base pizzas.
Students can enjoy a UniDays + NUS discount here. Please contact the restaurant for more information.
