Pizza Express, High Holborn, central London

A large branch of the ubiquitous Pizza Express chain offering the usual broad range of passable pizzas and pasta dishes. Service can be leisurely and the food (around £6 of £7 each) slightly overcooked. The egg embedded in the Fiorentina pizza, for example, can be hard-boiled. Avoid the dingy downstairs, which suffers from the low ceiling and the lack of daylight. 5/10
