The pizza was absolutely
amazing---probably the best we've ever had! our server was very knowledgable about the wine list and had some great recommendations. Lights are too bright in the space; need much warmer/lower wattage."

We LOVE this place and make a
reservation every time we come visit our daughter at CU. Everyone loves it, so do call ahead. Fab pizzas, divine first course (meat balls and arancini are our favs), but it's all delicious!!!"

It was SO noisy that we nearly had
to yell across our table. That can add to the fun ambiance for some but it wasn't what we were looking for that night. The food was okay. We had a salad and shared a pizza. The pizza had nice flavor but was wet."
Dined on 2/15/2014
I can honestly say that I've never
eaten anything better! This is not a "pizza place" this is a food experience! We shared a pizza and the octopus salad, they were phenomenal! The only reason I gave ambiance a poor rating was that we were sat by the wall where there is construction going on next door."

We loved the appetizers, pizza and
dessert. What more can you ask for."

We went for happy hour. The happy
hour menu is a little sparse for veggetarians, but the food was delicious. The staff was very friendly, knowledgable, and accommodating of my two small children. It was a good deal for happy hour, but I don't think I would go for dinner because the full priced pizzas average around $15 and they are kind of small. We escaped with a bill of $48, including tip, for 3 drinks, 2 pizzas, and an app. Somehow, during non HH times, I would bet my bill would be about $80 - for pizza."

This is a good, but not great
Neapolitan pizza restaurant. Everything tasted great, but the center half of the crust of both pizzas was soggy. Again, the flavors are good and maybe we just caught the kitchen on a bad night. I was surprised given the restaurant's reputation."
Dined on 1/6/2014
Great happy hour menu, with delish
full size pizzas! A bit noisy, but the food was so good it was worth it! Waiter was knowledgeable and efficient. Can't wait to go back for more Diavola!"
Dined on 12/30/2013
The food was as expected, but the
real annoyance was having a reservation and being placed at a tiny table next to the kitchen and water station prep counter. Really? You have guaranteed business with a reservation and you're going to place us at likely the worst table in the entire restaurant. Despite the deliciousness of the food, the ambience and service were lacking."
Dined on 11/16/2013
First time here but we look
forward to returning. The pizza ingredients were so so fresh. The staff was very friendly."
Dined on 12/28/2013
The Salads, wines and pizzas are
wonderful. Especially we found it nice to be provided with delicious water in glass bottles on our table, both still and sparkling for no extra costs! That's a first in our experience."

I took my girlfriend here for her
birthday. The staff were great and super helpful. They even made a menu with happy birthday Esha at the top. The Bruschetta was well done, not too much oil and the ingredients were well balanced. The true gen here though is the pizza. The Naples-style pizza is delicious. The dough was flavorful and had a nice crisp but was not too much like a cracker. The balance of the mushrooms, cheese, and sauce was excelent. we could taste each of the different types of mushrooms and they were each unique and added their own to the overall experience. The aspect that my girlfriend and I appreciated most was that the pizza was not oily or greasy. The butterscotch pudding is made fresh each day from scratch and was tasty."
Dined on 11/22/2013
Been here for lunch which was nice
but just for a quick bit we decided to try this place for dinner. Basically the food was fine, though a pizza coming to the table unsliced and not providing people anything but a butter knife to slice it seems crazy. Like I said I'd just prefer to go to Basta. Wouldn't go back, that's for sure."
Dined on 12/5/2013
Our group of four had a great
experience. Our server had a great grasp of everything on the menu and the popular items and guest chef specials. Everyone's pizza was tasty and perfectly cooked. The dessert list was a great follow-up."
Dined on 11/22/2013
The pizza ingredients were
excellent, but the crust was very chewy. The noise level was so high that it was impossible to carry on a conversation. The wine selection was excellent and the happy hour wine was good as was its price. The deserts were also very good. The service was outstanding. Our shared seafood salad was very good. Pizzeria Locale is certainly trendy and for good reasons - the pizza oven, the pizza ingredients, but the pizza fell a little short in the final product."
Dined on 10/28/2013
Can't write enough superlatives
about this restaurant. The pizza is out of this world, and the service is the best you'll find anywhere."
Dined on 10/26/2013
My girlfriend and I were so
excited to finally make the hour drive to Pizzeria Locale for a fun dinner, but we were both so incredibly bummed by the poor service. We sat at the bar and were totally ignored the entire time. The guys behind the bar were way more interested in chatting with each other, and they seemed put out any time we asked for something, such as a fork or another glass of wine. Also, for my 4th visit, I have to say that my pizza wasn't as good as any of the other times. There were very little ingredients on top, including cheese. It was super bland. Anyway, did the great staff and cooks all head to the Denver location? Will try that one instead next time."

Love this place - awesome pizza &
the gluten free crust is delicious!"
Dined on 10/15/2013
Small, tables are right on each
other Not great wine Pizza was underdone Not suitable for kids although we had two sitting right on us practically and water was flying everywhere We show up for a 5:45 PM dinner and had to wait??? Lots of apologies..."
Dined on 10/4/2013
We had a lovely time celebrating
my birthday thanks to the great service and menu recommendations."
Dined on 10/1/2013
Their gluten free pizza crust is
to die for. I've tried every GF pizza crust that I can find in CO and none compare to this. My favorite pizza is the Diavola, it really helps moisten the crust so it's soft & chewy."
Dined on 9/3/2013
Dining at Pizzaria Locale is such
a pleasure! The service is fantastic, wine choices great! The pizza is fantastic, the best in Colorado!!! Very creative and baked to perfection in the 1000degree oak wood fired oven!! And the butterscotch pudding for dessert? yum!!!!!!!!!!"
Dined on 8/31/2013
While this pizza is probably the
best I have eaten in all of the Front Range (and my canonical reference is New Haven), Pizzeria Locale falls short because of its loudness. What is up with Boulder restaurants and noise levels that cut off all serious conversations and where invariably you have to ask the waiter to repeat what he says? Would it be too much to slip in a few discrete bafflers and other sound absorbing materials to cut down on the echoes? Would it be too much to turn down the loud stereo a notch or two? Other than this, high fives and a great design. Great service as well."
Dined on 8/31/2013
Great, freshly made pizza. Unusual
Dined on 8/22/2013
In Boulder to move my daughter to
CU and it was our last dinner together before moving her into the Dorms. We had a nice time with good food. Place was energetic and fun. We will certainly be back when I come to visit her."
Dined on 8/20/2013
Excellent! Menu includes a variety
of unique pizzas plus hidden gems such as a delicious seafood salad."
Dined on 8/16/2013
Superb pizza, the best in the
Denver/Boulder area! Great service by Alex. Third time to visit and always a wonderful meal. Will visit again soon."
Dined on 8/10/2013
Great food and great service, but
didn't know it would be noisy for our anniversary. Great happy hour menu! The butterscotch pudding is the best dessert I've had all year!"
Dined on 8/8/2013
Just great food there. Nice wine
list. Worth a trip from Denver."
Dined on 8/6/2013
I think this place has the best
pizza in Colorado and the appetizers are amazing as well. The service you get is like what you would get at a fancy restaurant."
Dined on 8/4/2013
This came highly recommended to me
& I will pass on the recommendation. I got a white pizza with prosciutto, sweet corn & a Gaelic sauce....it was divine!!! My mother & I spent the week trying out the restaurants Bouldee has to offer & this was our favorite (closely followed by Oak). I will most definitely be returning here when I move to the city on August 15!"
Dined on 7/26/2013
this is my absolute go to for a
relaxing lunch on a weekday off. the service is always fantastic; attentive, knowledgeable and properly trained/coordinated staff make this place an absolute thrill for me, someone who is in the industry and has a hard time feeling taken care of when dining out. Meatballs, arancino, frutti di mare and funghi pizza were standouts of this particular visit but I've never had a bad experience at Locale. They kill it, every time."
Dined on 7/26/2013
my wife and I love great pizza -
this was one of the best ones we've had in our 7 years in Colorado - just like being back in Italy! Food and Service were fantastic!"
Dined on 7/20/2013
Food was great. it took 20 minutes
plus to get Gelato. It was just slow all the way around"
Dined on 7/18/2013
Wondering why the waitress never
asked if we wanted desert. Wondering why I was asked why I was looking around the restaurant."
Dined on 7/19/2013
We keep coming back for the
margherita pizza because it tastes just like the pizza we had in Rome two years ago. How lucky we are to be able to relive that moment so close to home. It can feel a little crowded and loud but I enjoy being able to watch the cooks prepare and slide pizzas into the oven."
Dined on 7/7/2013
The ingredients taste fresh, the
salad was excellent, but the pizza is extremely soggy. If you like a bit of crisp to your crust, you will be very disappointed here."
Dined on 7/12/2013
I have dined at PL half a dozen
times and I won't go again. Despite this being a popular lunch destination, staff was unwilling to make an entree sized salad for lunch one day. I had had the experience of ordering the Mercato salad before and was surprised when the tiny portion arrived. No wonder the waitress had asked if my friend and I wanted a pizza as well. This time, upon asking for an entree portion the waitress suggested ordering two and perhaps the kitchen would plate them together! This was apparently beyond kitchen guidelines. Further, I wouldn't have been surprised if I were charged double the price, or $18, for a salad with no protein. At least that would have been less than the $25 for pizza and the smaller salad!"
Dined on 7/5/2013
Pizzeria Locale did not
disappoint!! Loved the staff, the menu and the wine list!! My husband had the Antica salad while I had the Artigianale - they were outstanding! We shared the Verdure Miste - great flavor combination! For pizza we ordered both the Bianca and Maiale - the Maiale edged out the Bianca to be our favorite of the two, but not by much! Dessert was fantastic, we ordered the Cassata and it was the perfect ending to a great evening! We will definitely go back! The restaurant noise echoes tremendously with a combo of mostly bare & tiled walls - the music was very loud (though we still couldn't tell what was playing) and the restaurant was packed.... The noise level took away from our experience, but we will still go back :)"

Whichever pizza you order, add the
imported Italian mushrooms ... you won't be sorry"
