THE WONDERFUL thing about Pizza Express in The Water Gardens, Harlow is the warmth of the whole experience.
The new layout is full of rich colours and attractive decor. There is also plenty of space. so whether you are a couple or a large group, there is plenty of personal space.
But what was the food like?
We shared a starter of the new Nduja Dough Balls. We were both hungry but that is testament to the ample portions.
This is a spicy dish but has just the right balance of cheese and spices.
One of us continued the spicy theme for the main course with a Pollo Fiesta. Again, the size of the portion was impressive but so was the quality of the food. There was a lot going on.
The Fajita Spice Chicken was complimented by the sour cream and the mozzarella topped off with lime and coriander.
By contrast, we also had a Grand Pollo Milanese. A delicious warming chicken dish that hits all the right spots.
Both dishes were complimented by a lovely glass of white (Pinot Grigio) and red (Merlot).
The whole experience is helped by General Manager General Manager Ioana-Roxana Bobocea and her 20 dedicated team members.
They are very proud of their pizzeria and cannot do enough for you.
Pizza Express is a place for a classy but competitively priced pizza as well as a whole range of other Italian dishes.
They have been in Harlow for ten years but with a refit (especially the marble tables) the Water Gardens eatery is a perfect spot for any time of day or year.
