This is a super place with a family. The pizza is good, as are their other offerings like calzones. They give the kids pizza dough to play with to keep them occupied, and they have a dedicated family area where your little ones can be a little noisier or watch television. The tower part of the Pizza Tower remains quiet so you can sit with your date and enjoy a meal peacefully if you do not have your kids with you. Great planning, and a nice place for pizza!

We went to Cincinnati for Halloween Haunt at Kings Island and stopped in at Pizza Tower our first night there. Although the place isn't immaculately clean it is clean enough. The staff were friendly and made sure we had everything we needed even though we had a fairly large party. The pizza was very good. The kids got globs of dough to play with while they waited which they found extraordinary and did a good job of keeping them entertained. The room we stayed in had cartoon characters painted on the walls. The kids were naming them and telling us all about which shows they were on. All in all it was a nice place to visit and we might just make an annual tradition of it. :)

This was out first time here but it certainly won't be our last. Really great pizza. The homemade sauce is fantastic and the crust is light, not heavy and dense. I didn't feel bloated and loaded down after I ate like with some pizzas. Friendly atmosphere and waitstaff.

This was the first time for my family to the pizza tower. We have drove by it several times but never stopped. They had a coupon in the Cincinnati Entertainment Book, so we thought we would try it. Since we have a two year old son the waitress recommended the kid area. The kid area is a section of the restaurant with cartoon characters painted on the walls, cartoons showing on tvs, and a small little theater like setting. We ordered the windy city chicago style stuffed pizza and a family size garden salad. Service was excellent by the blonde haired young waitress at lunch. The prices were not bad with the large family salad only $6.99. Iced tea tasted great and the pizza was perfect- just the right amount of everything. Restaurant is older, but older does not mean unclean and I saw no cleanliness issues. We would definitely eat here again especially with a coupon.

Since my wife was out of town, our boys requested that we take a trip to the Pizza Tower. We timed the trip to occur on a Tuesday, because the Tuesday special is "Timed Tuesday," which according to their website: "Medium 1-Item Pizzas are the Price of the Current time. For Example, 5:01 = $5.01; Starting at 4PM." We planned to arrive as early for dinner as we could, which was 4:45 p.m.--meaning that we were able to get their medium one-topping pizzas for $4.45. The normal price for their medium one-topping pizza is $10.84, so this worked out to quite a savings. I highly recommend visiting early on Tuesdays.

The first thing that we noticed on this hot August day was that the dining room was very cold. The air conditioning certainly worked well, and they had one of the ceiling fans running so it was actually a little windy at the table.

The Pizza Tower is a two story building with the main dining section built in an octagon shape like a tower, and set up so there are actually four levels of dining--each one a few steps above the previous one--surrounding the central kitchen area. The dining area is architecturally intriguing.

The tables are decorated with empty wine bottles with wicker around the base, and artificial flowers inside. It's a nice effect for a pizza place. The booths in the area where we are always seated have a dimmer switch on the wall to control the chandelier above the table.

At less than $5 per pizza, we ordered three--one for each of us. Mine had onion, one boy had black olive and the other had half black olive and half pineapple. The boys ordered Mello Yello ($2.09) that came with free refills. The pizzas arrived just over 10 minutes after they were ordered.

The pizzas had a light crust that curved upward near the edges. The tomato sauce had a good hint of sweetness; the cheese blended nicely. They cooked my pizza just right. I also appreciated that the top was not greasy or oily at all. I really enjoyed the pizza.

The staff was very friendly. We arrived before 5 p.m., so they weren't terribly busy, and we received just the right amount of service. Our server came around just often enough so that we felt taken care of.

The only thing I don't like about the Pizza Tower is their regular prices. For our 3 one-topping medium pizzas and 2 soft drinks, the total before tax came to $36.71. Fortunately because of their Timed Tuesday special, they wrote off $19.17 of that as a discount, meaning that it only came to $17.54 before tax. Adding taxes and tip, we walked out only spending $23.94. Definitely check out the specials on their website ahead of time or join their Pizza Tower Rewards club and receive regular e-mail specials.

While the pizza is above average, I don't recommend eating here at the regular price. There are plenty of other places with comparable pizza for a better value.
