- Great food, ambiance and service!OpenTable Diner Since 2007Dined on 11/16/2014We ate here for my daughter's 20th birthday celebration. The decor is very chic, the pizza's tasted like they just came from Italy, and the wait staff could not have been nicer!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Loved it!chellersmDined on 11/8/2014We've been wanting to come since it opened, and finally got a chance. The Happy Hour deals are great, and all the food was fabulous. Highly recommend the arancini. Can't go wrong really!Special Features:
- Fabulouslove2eatDined on 11/7/2014I love this place. It is my go-to place for great food, outstanding service and fun with my husband, my girlfriends or out of town guests. Every bite is yummy. And if gluten free, this is a find.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Best PizzaOpenTable Diner Since 2009Dined on 10/23/2014As always, such a pleasant happy hour. Started with house wine, an order of arancino and pork meatballs and split the diavola pizza. Perfection.Special Features:

- Boulder is luckyDHP1VIPDined on 10/17/2014Pizzeria Locale rocks it with the best in the nation for pizza, service and one of the best wines lists I have seen in a long time. Boulder is lucky to have a such a great place.Special Features:
- Real Neapolitan pizzaMikeDined on 9/30/2014Finally a place that serves real Neapolitan pie. The pizza is amazing, very flavorful. These guys know what they're doing. Great salads and appetizers too.Special Features:
- Fun Pizza PlaceBGLTravelerDined on 9/28/2014We had made a reservation but showed up an hour early & they still sat us, so great. We order a small salad & pizza. It was very good & the salad had such unique flavors. They staff all helped us from taking our order, to clearing dishes, & running our ticket. However we showed up on Sunday to have bloody marys & they ran out before we got ours. They did not make us pay for them even though they gave us a half of glass each (bc that is all that was left), but it probably took them 30 minutes to get us our drinks (bc we already ate our salad and the pizza had just been delivered to our table) & then it was not even a full drink. I was confused by that, but no big deal. So besides the problem with the drinks the rest was great!Special Features:
- Sit at the pizza barReadyForCoffeeDined on 9/27/2014I've eaten here 4 or 5 times and have never dined at a table, rather have always eaten at the pizza bar. Watching the skilled hands of the pizza chefs adds to the ambiance of almost any meal. Of course, the food is fresh, homemade and fantastic. Though a bit noisy, this restaurant is a Boulder gem!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Best Pizza in ColoradoilikefoodDined on 9/25/2014I live in Denver and frequent the Pizzeria Locale here which is an express version of the Boulder location. Whenever I am in Boulder, I make it a point to stop at Pizzeria Locale. The environment, service, food, and wine list is incomparable to any other higher end pizza place I've found in Boulder or Denver.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- A special placeJudythefoodieDined on 9/19/2014Wow what simple food made into something very special. Fabulous meal. Thank you and service top notch.I would recommend this to a friend.
- Dave W.DaveDined on 9/14/2014Great food, wine list and attentive service. Variety of designer pizzas amazing. They are willing to experiment with you on different combinations, as well. Appetizers are fun and well prepared.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Authentic Italian pizzaPickeydinerDined on 9/14/2014The pizza here is authentic Italian pizza and delicious. The crust is thin and just the right balance of crisp and chewy. The toppings are sparse but extremely tasteful and satisfying. The appetizers are outstanding and the desserts are scrumptious . I highly recommend the Nutella saltimboca dipped in the butterscotch pudding. It's out of this world. It's unfortunate that the space is tiny with little space between tables . It's a little too cozy but the food is so delicious I can overlook that one tiny inconvience. I take family and friends here and have never been disappointed .Special Features:
- Good pizza but very noisy.GailGVIPDined on 9/6/2014Don't go here for a quiet dinner. Go for a casual lunch instead. Pizza is very fresh but watch out for their creations. Mine had no mozzarella so was not what I expected. Tables are too close together and waiters had trouble serving including spilling milk from the next table on me when cleaning it up. They gave us a free dessert. Pudding. I prefer Tiramisu. Limited dessert choices. For the price I expected better foos and service.
- More than Just PizzaOpenTable Diner Since 2010Dined on 9/5/2014Excellent place to transition from 'there to there.' Good food, very professional wait staff, well worth a 25% tip!Special Features:
- Loved it.OpenTable Diner Since 2007VIPDined on 9/5/2014Charcuterie, salads, bruschetta was very nice. The server was awesome and knowledgeable. Next time we'll try the pizza and dessert.
- Pizza dough for the little onesLuckyJollyDined on 8/28/2014One of the great things about Pizzeria Locale was that they brought out some dough and flour for the kids to play with, each with their own plate. It was awesome for them. Much better than the fake play-dough that some restaurants have for little kids. The kids loved playing with the dough and we loved explaining to them that the dough in their hands became the pizza that they ate. Loved it.Special Features:
- Delicious food, but LOUD!SportsdivaDined on 8/21/2014A very popular spot, Pizzeria Locale is always bustling. Love the food here and the service is friendly and professional. Enjoy sitting at the counter and watching the pizza being made. Often leave with a headache though since the place is so very loud. Covered in hard surfaces, the noise literally bounces all over the small restaurant.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- AnaCAnaCDined on 8/20/2014Excellent authentic Neapolitan pizza. Fresh ingredients and cooked perfectly. Nice wine list and great service.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- vailskiiersDined on 8/19/2014My first time here and i will definetly be back. My daughter, a student at CU recommended it. Great small starters- the fruiti di mare was excellent- fresh and lightly dressed. the pizzas, margarita, and another with hot chilis marinara and ricotta, were both amazing, the dough was cooked to perfection. Less is more with pizza and this was truly the case. Upon observation, all pizzas looked to die for! The crowd was diverse; families with young chldren, adults after work crowd and students from local college. Our server was outstanding! Will be back again and again when in Boulder!Special Features:

- Haute pizzaOpenTable Diner Since 2007Dined on 7/29/2014I imagine that this is about as delightful a "pizza eating" experience as there can be. The pizza is rich in flavor, and the selections are well thought out. The service is attentive and thorough. I always leave there completely satisfied. If I praise it too much more, I won't be able to get a table, so let's just leave it there.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Very good food, but some problemsWaltVIPDined on 7/19/2014I've been to the Boulder Pearl Street location here a couple of times and really like the food, especially the charcuterie. The have a great wine list and a really nice selection of Italian wines by the glass. It's a bit noisy, but not too bad. Our service was good overall, but on our last visit, something was seriously wrong at the bar. Food services was spot on, but we really had to struggle to get our wine. Sometimes our wine orders were simply forgotten and we had to ask repeatedly for our wines. This was early (5:30) and the first time we have experienced problems of any sort here. We will go back.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Pizza Pizza!kathyVIPDined on 7/14/2014I love pizza (an embarrassing amount) and this was quite possibly the best pizza (and crust) I have ever had. I appreciated the authenticness of each pizza they offered. Our server was excellent at recommending both wine and appetizers as well. It is worth the drive to Boulder. I have now been to both the Denver and Boulder locations and Boulder is three times better than the fast food version in Denver.Special Features:
- OpenTable Diner Since 2003Dined on 7/8/2014The pizza was great. All the ingredients used in the salad & pizza were very fresh . The types of pizza were creative & a welcome change. Perfect crispy crust.Special Features:
- OpenTable Diner Since 2006Dined on 7/8/2014Great food. Price and menu is especially good for the "happy hour", 4:30 - 5:30 daily.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Amazing and friendlyBoulderheartDined on 7/6/2014The best ingredients, service is perfect all around. Really creative, artisanal pizzas and salads. I live in NYC and visit Boulder frequently. This place is better than anything we have in Manhattan!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- VeggieFoodieVIPDined on 7/5/2014Very, very good and better than I remember! Maybe the should tell you they do not slice the pizzas. We remembered and it was no big deal, but the tables on each side of us seemed to be quire thrown by this.Special Features:
- Great pizzaOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 7/1/2014Lots of interesting choices, and the thin crust works well with gourmet toppings.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Fun date night!PattyjoVIPDined on 6/26/2014A great place for a fun evening in Boulder. Next time going to come sit at the bar. Pizza was awesome.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Best Pizza Outside of Italy!TyGuyDined on 6/17/2014Simply fantastic thin crust pizza. I have gone multiple times and enjoyed several different pizzas with quiet a few number of friends...and everyone says the same thing..."best pizza outside of the time I was in Italy"Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Loud, but great service and foodChuk121Dined on 6/7/2014Loved the food and service, but the volume needed to be turned down. Get reservations!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- nunavitDined on 5/21/2014The pizza is very Italian--a little soggy (that's a good thing) and moderately cooked, so that some of the cheese still keeps its form. I loved it, but I've always preferred the pizza from Italy over American-style pizza. The lunch special (half a salad a margherita pizza and a soda) is a great deal at $10.Special Features:
- Elevated pizzaHeavenlyPizzaDined on 5/8/2014Love Pizzeria Locale. Every bite of every course is delicious and just what you imagine delicious would taste with your eyes closed. The "altar to prosciutto" begs you to enhance your pizza just a bit more. More tables are needed - many more tables- and a larger outdoor space. I'd eat there every day, if I could. More classic Italian pasticceria would be welcome as they seem to have closed their espresso shop & added a private dining room. Those lovely pillows of pastry did not make it back onto the menu, sadly. Not much more to add to pizza perfection - it's simple, perfectly prepared, high quality ingredients delivered as in Napoli, but this is Boulder! And the wine pairings, olives, oils, meats & cheeses all elevate the experience.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- As good as it getslove2eatDined on 5/3/2014Food perfectly yummy, our waiter beyond fabulous. This is our go-to favorite for perfect food everytime.Special Features:
- no words to describe how amazing!mikes4himDined on 4/26/2014My partner and I went to Pizzeria Locale for lunch. What an amazing time! We started with some GREAT appetizers.... some salad and the best saffron/mozzarella balls.... the salad was amazing, perfect flavors, perfect amount of dressing. We got one salad and shared it. It was perfectly coded and was the best pizza I have had in a LONG time... probably since we were in Italy! We then had the gelato for dessert and got coffee's to enjoy the end of the meal. It was such delight. Best of all, the service was TREMENDOUS! Our waitress was amazing and the rest of the team there went above and beyond to make sure we were taken care of and felt at home. I truly felt like an honored guest! We will certainly be back!Special Features:
- Gem!CsturnerDined on 4/17/2014Great starter bites, great pizza! Server made an excellent wine pairing suggestion. My kids were given crayons and paper - and they brought an early pizza out for them. Loved this place and meal.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Never disapoointed...goodeatsDined on 4/15/2014I have eaten at Pizzeria Locale many times and it has never disappointed me. This time I brought a friend who had never been before and she was impressed. We went for lunch and I did notice it was not as packed as in the past. I ordered the Mais Mozzarella pizza which has prosciutto, corn and lots of garlic. It is my favorite and it was delicious. My friend had the Salsiccia Pepperoni which has peppers, onions and sausage. The manager (sorry I did not catch his name) was very helpful with the wine choice. I love the fact that the Boulder location is sit down. The Denver location is not form what I have heard.Special Features:
- I have eaten at Pizzeria LocaleJerryVIPDined on 4/12/2014I have eaten at Pizzeria Locale several times and generally have been happy with the restaurant and the food. However, on this most recent occasion, they refused to honor my OpenTable reservation. The excuse was they 'suddenly got a lot of reservations'. I'm not sure why this should have been a problem if they were managing their reservations. Service was also very slow. We did not see a waiter for at least 10 minutes after being seated.Special Features:
- Food was great. Ambience average.OpenTable Diner Since 2013Dined on 4/12/2014Food was very good. Service was what I would get at any average restaurant. Not a place for a romantic date. Very small and tight, so not good for groups or parties.Special Features:
- Love this place!MikeMahonDined on 3/31/2014The service, food, wine list, desserts and ambience are world class! I take clients, friends, relatives and employees here as often as possible. It is our go to restaurant!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
