Good Pizza from the wood oven

Restaurant interior design is average. But the pizza is great. Very nice is, that it is cooked in a wood oven. Staff is friendly and prices are fair.

Ice cream here is simply great. I especially appreciated the yoghurt one which will disperse any doubts about home made: you'll never get this taste with industrial milk. At the same time, better not to come here for a pizza dinner. These guys manage to make it unplatable. Too dry pastry and filling without inspiration and harmony between ingridients.

We stopped here at lunch on a Monday & were very happy with our lunch. I had a mixed salad (typical with lettuce, corn,tomatoes, beets, fennel & carrots. He had the margarita pizza, thin crust, napolitana style-AMAZING, fast, fabulous. Service was good, too!

Once in a while I stop at the Primavera for a quick pizza or an ice cream. Not bad, it's in front of the hospital and there is a bit of traffic but not that bothersome.

The pizza was the best we had in the whole Ticino area. Toppings were fresh and generous. The Vegetarian and the Hawaiian pizzas were great. Atmosphere was average.

Really, I have been all over Italy but this man puts together a four cheese pizza like a Parisian chef. We had one between the two of us and it was heavenly. 5 star pizza for sure. Don't miss it if you are in this area.

Primavera is a very basic pizzeria on the edge of the old town in Locarno. It has the ambiance of a diner... but the pizzas were great.
