Nice Pizza restaurant with fantastic service

The Locale is a nice restaurant with high ceilings. Its quite fast paced and loud, so not the right place for a romantic dinner. The service is absolutely fantastic, nice, funny and knows everything about the menu. The food was good (though the Pizza was decent, not outstanding), and we spent a... read more

My son and I have eaten here twice, always had very good pizzas and excellent service. The table water is a great touch! We enjoy the atmosphere here.

No question the pizza was great. However tables are very close together and the restaurant gets very crowded and noisy. Service was so-so - friendly but with several flaws. Limited menu and way overpriced - not unexpected being part of Frasca.

This place has a really cool atmosphere. It has an open view to the kitchen so you can see all of the goings on. Our server took our wine order and never delivered it until after our pizza was served. All of our pizzas were especially salty to the extent that, when I woke up at night, my heart was... More

The pizza joint is owned by the Frasca guys, so you know they won't skimp on ingredients. Yes, you might pay a little more, but it's the details that make it amazing. Last time I was in there, I sat at the pizza bar, and they were just cutting up a huge, fresh wheel of imported parm (Which they were... More

My teenage son took me to Pizzeria Locale last week and we had a seat at the counter watching the pizza oven. Reservations are recommended but easier to get in early at the counter. It was expensive, but worth every penny! And a little crowded, but aren't most great restaurants? I can't wait to go back!

Stop in for a pizza. A great lunch or dinner spot in Boulder. My hope is that with Chipotle as an investor in this concept that we'll see it grow nicely. Amazing pizza. Unique flavors. High-quality ingredients. And the Boulder location has the great opportunity to have the Frasca owners' wines served.

Fabulous pizza, but very, very, very crowded and loud. The tables are cramped and close together. You have to yell to talk to your friends across the table. If you are not vegetarian, get the Diavolo pizza.

No better pizza than at Pizzeria Locale. The mais pizza is my favorite - tasty and flavorful with a light crust. The polepettini are so good that I could make a meal of them, and don't forget to have a budino for dessert. Always friendly and clean!

This is the real deal. The pizza is excellent with exquisite ingredients. I always go for the basic Margherita which is the working horse of a pizzeria. They deliver. Friendly and attentive staff.
