Pizza Express has a new menu and it’s all our cheat day dreams come true.
With new starters, main dishes, salads and desserts, the whole menu at all five Dubai outlets has been given a seasonal overhaul.
We start with polpette bolognese – a portion of soft, fresh meatballs and warm, delicious bread rolls. We really loved the strong garlic flavour and typical Italian herbs – perfect choice for two or more to share, as it was so filling, and so very heavy on the allium.
After that, we really need something refreshing. Kale, walnut and citrus salad is a trendy combination of sweet oranges and healthy veggies. Top marks for the outstanding honey and mustard dressing, which makes even kale tastes amazing!

It shouldn’t be a surprise that our choice for a main course was pizza. We are a little bit in love with the crunchy dough at Pizza Express. Additions to the menu will be a hit with seafood lovers and Aragosta Reale could officially be the most fancy pizza in town, thanks to its lobster and black caviar toppings. So delicious, especially with a fresh squeeze of lemon that accompanies it.
Next up, filo apple parcel – full of apples, topped with caramel and surrounded by ice cream – looks better than it tastes, as the pastry was a little dry. Redemption comes with bombolini Italian doughnuts and espresso chocolate sauce – a coffee lovers’ delight, that’s not too sweet.
