GF pizza and pasta. GF food served on different plates to show are GF. Good brownie but don't order the kids brownie as it is rubbish in comparison to the normal one served with ice-cream.

{gluten + dairy free} Always a wonderful experience when eating at pizza express with dietary requirements! This is the first time visiting the St. Andrews restaurant and it did not disappoint! The waitress was SO friendly, helpful and accommodating and made sure I got what I needed. I said to my husband how relaxed they made me feel and not an issue at all! Would 10/10 recommend! Cannot thank the waitress enough for how kind / helpful she was! Lovely dinner was had!

{ I also can’t have tomatoes but they are so accommodating that I’m still able to have pizza with substitutions of the Tomato base to garlic oil! Always delish! }

As with all Pizza Express restaurants, the gluten free food is cooked in a separate kitchen. The pizza and dough balls are delicious. Staff are knowledgeable and gluten free food always comes with a special label. Always a safe and delicious option. The vegan cheese is the best I’ve ever had—you can’t even tell it’s vegan!!

We were looking for somewhere for a pre-theatre dinner and, struggling to find anywhere that could accommodate 6 diners, we settled for Pizza Express - a chain we usually think of as offering pretty good options.

Whilst there were no major issues encountered, the experience was not the best.

Firstly the venue was very noisy - not a lot to be done about that, it's largely down to the architecture causing significant echoing, but it doesn't make for the most enjoyable dining experience.

Secondly, my wife's pizza was served without several of the toppings. When we queried this the waitress commented that she didn't understand why that had happened. Workout making and further comment, she disappeared to the kitchen area before returning a few minutes later with the missing toppings in a bowl for my wife to add to the pizza herself.

Finally, and more worryingly for those with allergens - anyone who has visited Pizza Express will know that it clearly states on their menu that gluten-free pizzas are served on a square board. However, a member of party ordered a standard leggera pizza (containing gluten) which was served on a square board. When we queried this with the waitress, she assured us that it was fine. This calls into question all of Pizza Express' claims about allergens and suggests that they are not that hot on cross-contamination.

Although they say their food is suitable for Celiacs, every time I go I seem to get ill. A week after going to pizza express I had a test to see if I had eaten any gluten and it said I had. Now I’m not 100% sure it was pizza express but it’s likely my pizza had gluten in it.

Not sure why, but I have always had issues at Pizza Express. There are some pizza restaurants that offer GF pizza bases, and then flour surfaces with normal flour which defeats the purpose... I’ve stop trying...

Ate here my last night in Belfast. Service was a bit slow, but my gluten-free pizza was tasty. GF pizzas are served on a black slate. Also had the gluten free brownie for dessert.

It tasted amazing, but if you are Celiac, do NOT eat here. They make their own regular pizzas in the main room, and I had an awful gluten reaction as soon as I woke up, which usually means (for me) that the cross-contamination is what got me, not the product itself. Could even have been flour dust that had settled on the water glass. If you're not super-sensitive, you may be fine, but for me, I won't be going back. Too bad, because as I said, the taste was amazing.

Pizza Express use a tasty gluten free base made at their own GF bakery a their GF symbol on the menu denotes dishes that have measures in place to try to avoid gluten-contamination as accredited by Coeliac UK. I have eaten here many times and never been glutened - I’d give five stars if they had more interesting desserts !!!
