Pizza Express trials sharing dishes

The Pizza Express chain is trialling sharing dishes in over 30 of its restaurants as part of a menu extension exercise, which may lead to a roll out across its portfolio.

The company is naming this the ‘Piattini’ trial, which quite simply means 'small plate; in Italian. So as well as ordering their favourite pizzas, diners can now share small dishes that are in the spirit of Italian pizzerias.

The Piattini range includes, 14 brand new Italian-inspired plates, as well as some old classics. There are PizzaExpress favourites like Dough Balls and Bruschetta Originale 'PizzaExpress, which can be mixed with new dishes, like lemony, herby Chicken Wings, tangy Garlic Mushrooms with goat's cheese, and a delicious Antipasti (meat and vegan options available).

Pizza Express currently operates over 470 restaurants across the UK and 100 overseas in Europe, and its kitchens serve up more than 21 million pizzas a year.
