Pizza Express at Wandsworth Common
Located on Trinity Road just next to Wandsworth Common, this Pizza Express has open spaces to the front and the rear of the restaurant which is nice during summer. The restaurant is full of kids during the weekend so do not go there if you are looking for a quiet peaceful lunch. It was even full of kids today!
We ordered two pizzas (on Romana base meaning it is thinner, making the pizza bigger and crispier) and two Peroni beer. The beer were served quickly and were cold.
The two pizzas were the pizza La Reine (prosciutto cotto ham, olives and mushrooms for £7.55) and the pizza Soho (an olive and garlic pizza with fresh rocket and shaved grana padano added once it is out of the oven for £7.55 also). The pizza La Reine was average, a bit too much tomato sauce which made the pizza go a bit soggy, and a bit stingy on the cheese and ham. No complaint with the olives, that was the right amount. The pizza Soho was good and light compared to the pizza La Reine. Its base was crispy and the fresh rocket was giving a good flavour to the pizza. The chilli oil was very mild but still nice.

Pizza La Reine
Cost and conclusion: For £23.80 (plus service to add) it was fine for me who took the pizza Soho. I tried a little the pizza La Reine and I thought there was way too much tomato sauce making it bad. So overall it depends on the pizza you choose. There are usually vouchers with Pizza Express (do a search online) where you can take two pizzas for the price of one or get starters for free etc. With them the value for money would be good but I didn’t use them and for about the same the price you can eat much better at Rustica in Richmond, which isn’t located next door I agree. Still, if you have a big family, it is a good place to take your kids there. They even have baby changing facilities.
