We stopped here for a quick lunch while we were on a guided tour. It wasn't the best pizza I have ever had, but it wasn't awful.

Atmosphere: Upscale, especially for a pizza place. I would say it was more like a casual Italian dining restaurant. It was cozy, pretty crowded and loud. There was nice natural light because of the big open windows.

Service/Staff: The waitstaff in general seemed...more

Pizza Express was open and serving pre-show dinner to all of us Tower Festival goers who didn't think to order a Festival picnic but who needed to eat
