Situated within the bustling heart of the business district in Leeds is the Park Square branch of the famous Pizza Express chain of restaurants. Park Square is a gorgeous area, filled with high-class businesses, shops and restaurants, and Pizza Express is no exception. This stylish area of Leeds is also close to the hustle and bustle of the city centre, being just a couple of minutes away from the central train station, near the University of Leeds buildings, and close to the Leeds Town Hall and Leeds Art gallery landmarks. So, Pizza Express couldn’t be easier to find, and would be great for any kind of occasion.
Inside, the restaurant is impressively decorated, with a chic monochrome look which still manages to be welcoming, warm and casual. Sit down at one of the round tables, which allow for easy conversation and maybe even sharing dishes, or combine a few tables to make space for a big group, as the staff here are adept at meeting everyone’s needs.
As well as the attentive staff, the menu itself will cater excellently for various diets, from gluten-free to low-calorie or vegetarian, this place has it all as well as classic Italian offerings. It also welcomes children, have a look at their amazing kid’s colouring packs if you want to entertain them in between courses. You might want to order a few sides, too, such as the delicious and unusual polenta chips with rosemary, twice baked and finished with cheese and a honey and mustard dressing. Why not share the classic Italian antipasto, too, as you’ll love the variety it offers and allows you to try a bit of everything. For your mains, there’s plenty on offer, but we personally recommend the thin and crispy Romana bases with any of the fresh toppings, from pesto to chicken, and beetroot to sultanas.
Students can enjoy a UniDays + NUS discount here. Please contact the restaurant for more information.
