For authentic Italian dining, Pizza Express never fails to impress. Famed and celebrated for bringing great pizza to Britain when the first branch opened in 1965, this beloved chain has a variety of superb venues to choose from nationwide. Each Pizza Express site is unique in terms of decor and ambience, yet all uphold the same commitment to quality and excellence in terms of both service and cuisine.

We visited the Belgrade Plaza branch, situated in the vibrant heart of Coventry and neighbouring the Belgrade Theatre. Having taken advantage of the ample parking available in the adjacent multi-storey, we approached the restaurant's familiar striking blue emblem. Once inside, we were met by a stylish, contemporary interior and helpful staff, then seated next to patio doors opening out onto a lovely alfresco dining area.

Knowledgeable and clearly passionate about Pizza Express's menu, our waitress recommended an intro of marcona almonds tossed in sea salt, which proved quite addictive, while my partner picked premium Sicilian olives that conjured up blissful images of bountiful green olive groves. Bruschetta con funghi came next - comprising a creamy sauce served with Portobello and closed-cup mushrooms, red onions and parsley. Accompanied by rocket served with shavings of Grana Padano cheese and drizzled in balsamic syrup, every mouthful was fresh, flavoursome and crunchy.

When it came to the main event, I opted for the pollo pesto - a piping hot, hearty pasta dish with melted mozzarella and Gruyère, tasty mushrooms and succulent chicken. My health-conscious partner opted for the mare e monti pizza from the 500- calorie 'leggera' selection, topped with king prawns, mushrooms, red onions, olives and mozzarella with cajun spices - a scrumptious dish, especially when accompanied by a full-bodied Italian red wine. The restaurant was a hive of activity - filled with couples and families enjoying the bona fide pizzeria experience. Indeed, 'la famiglia' is an important part of the Pizza Express philosophy and so, of course, children are well catered for, with their own affordable menu to choose from and complimentary activity book to keep them entertained until their meal arrives.

Rather than go for the modest yet tasty 'dolcetti' mini-pudding with coffee option, I decided to treat myself to one of the impressive full-size desserts. From the tempting selection, I opted for the Italian-style toffee fudge gelato with vanilla, toffee sauce and fudge chunks - truly decadent. Wherever you are in Warwickshire, Pizza Express is sure to deliver all you hunger for and then some. You can even take the Pizza Express magic home with you by ordering a delicious dish to take away
