Yesterday we went to the Pizza Express in Watford for lunch. We had been to this particular Pizza Express countless times and have always had a great experience. We had been asked to see what we thought of the New Summer Piccolo Menu At Pizza Express, we knew it would be lovely as the boys love it there! When we arrived we were given a spacious table and the menus to browse through. They have a new Summer Piccolo Children’s menu and activity packs. Oscar is seven and always likes an activity pack in a restaurant with different puzzles, word searches and colouring on them and Archie being two loves drawing all over it and the activity packs keeps them both entertained until their lunch arrives.
The new Piccolo menu has lots of choice and you get three courses, a drink and a bambinoccino with the dessert for only £6.95. The starter is baked dough balls with cucumber and fresh, red baby plum tomatoes. For mains there are three different pasta dishes to choose from, four different types of pizza and new on the Summer menu is a Pollo salad. For dessert as I mentioned a bambinoccino is included and there is four yummy desserts to choose from.
Oscar always has the same he loves the penne Bolognese and Archie had the Margherita pizza. The portions are perfectly sized, obviously Archie always leaves a bit as he is only two but Oscar as a growing seven year old finishes the bowl of Bolognese completely. I had my all time favourite a salad nicoise. I love the Pizza Express salad dressing, thankfully you can buy it at the supermarket and I use it all the time at home. They finished their lunch off with vanilla ice-cream with a cone and chocolate sauce which also comes with a Bambinoccino.
As well as the fun-filled activity packs, with each child getting their very own chef’s hat and stickers too, Pizza Express are encouraging children aged 6-12 to unleash their creativity and be as imaginative as possible in their Dough Ball Adventure writing competition. All they have to do is submit an exciting Dough Ball adventure story (up to 200 words) via the Pizza Express website for the chance to have their stories being made into animations, as well as win weekly adventure prize. Plus one lucky winner will win an adventure holiday. Such a fantastic competition and educational too! Oscar has already started writing his dough ball story about them going on holiday to visit their family in Italy.
The staff in the Watford branch were really lovely as always and even though they were super busy we didn’t have to wait for a table and our food came nice and quickly. We will be back many times over the Summer holidays! For a great priced, relaxing lunch head to Pizza Express with the kids this Summer! And don’t forget to enter the competition!
