Time Out Says

Having walked away with Highly Commended awards in the Best Family and Best Budget categories at the 2016 Time Out Abu Dhabi Restaurant Awards, it’s safe to say Jazz@PizzaExpress is one of our favourite joints in the city for a fun, satisfying, pocket-friendly meal with the family.

Its menu comprises the usual names you’d expect to find at an Italian-themed eatery. The most popular item being its pizzas, which are grouped by toppings and thickness.

While the number of vegetarian dishes pale in comparison to the non-vegetarian options, the offerings are tempting nonetheless. The classic margherita is an old-favourite that is done well. The base is crisp, the mozzarella is melted and stringy, and the tomato sauce is thick and jam-like in consistency.

Our vegetarian friends will also like the pesto tagliatelle. Julienne pieces of courgette are tossed with roasted tomatoes in a fresh, homemade pesto. Toasted pine nuts add texture to the wholesome bowl.

The staff are courteous and friendly here, regardless of it being a busy brunch service or a quiet afternoon. We’ve never left grumpy, or hungry.

The bottom line
A favourite that delivers tasty goods.
