Noisy, understaffed, slow. Waiters rushed off their feet. Probably the worst pizza express I've visited. Not recommended.

Came here for a late lunch with my wife, great service, clean, great food, food was hot (temperature) and tasty. Music not to loud so we could converse. One of the best pizza expresses I have been to.

Be warned this place on a cold day like today (5 degrees) is unable to keep their customers warm. The heaters were not that great and even the staff were cold. It would also appear that the restaurant operates a skeleton staff crew on the weekends.

Well, let's face it - you can't really go wrong with a Pizza Express for lunch! I have to say, though, that this particular Pizza Express stood out for me. Not only was there a fantastic view from the balcony which straddled the London Wall area, but also the staff were just about the best that I've encountered. Friendly, helpful... More

The food here is standard Pizza Express fayre - tasty pizzas, a small selection of pastas and oven cooked dishes, with salads and sides. The food is of a nice (if not spectacular) standard. The restaurant is great for business lunches - it's efficient, clean, bright and does the job. Given the restaurant is surrounded by offices, they clearly know... More

It's the preferred place of visit for staff lunches as the restaurant has agreed on offering discounts to our company. Have visited the restaurant on many occasions and the staff are very friendly and the service is great. Booking well in advance is highly recommended as it gets quite busy during lunchtime.

I love it here. The restaurant is on the bridge above the main road in the heart of city and at night you get to look down on the cars below and the offices around. It's also opposite a cool bar for a pre-drink. It is never busy here in fact they have an upstairs floor which I have never... More

Ate here early evening before a concert at the Barbican and it is an ideal location for a pre theatre meal with only a short walk into the venue. Great spot for watching the world go by as it is literally over the road and we had a window table. The food was very good and the best we have... More

From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile in the world, the financial district known simply as “The City” is one of London's most historic and fascinating neighbourhoods. Here high rise office towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually every era in between, including Christopher Wren's glorious St.Paul's Cathedral, and John Soane's dauntingly classicist Bank of England. This neighbourhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.
