Pizza Express

On Friday night, after a long afternoon of shopping, my friend and I decided to have dinner at Pizza Express which is a few minutes away from Sloane Square station. The atmosphere in the restaurant was lovely and cosy and we spent the evening catching up. The food was amazingly filling and delicious especially after trekking around Central London all day whilst lugging around arm fulls of shopping bags!

Italian polenta with rosemary, twice baked and finished with grana padano, served with honey & mustard dressing.

The pizza and the pasta tasted really delicious ans spicy and the waiter brought over a small pot of chili flakes, chili infused oil and garlic infused oil.

I was contemplating getting a Tiramisu for dessert but decided I was too full to eat another bite, so we just ordered coffee and carried on talking!

When the cheque arrived we were pleasantly surprised. The waiters were lovely, we had a few laughs and the food was served promptly after ordering.
