The calzone was one of the best calzones we've ever eaten. Felt like we were in a little deli in downtown. Had a lot of old character to it. A little expensive but well worth the stop.

I have always enjoyed Prima Pizza Pasta and usually make it one of the first places I visit when I'm in Buffalo. The pizza is always so delicious...nice and cheesy, and fresh. The customer service is great and the I love the atmosphere. Definitely a must visit when in Buffalo.

Strolled into Prima Pizza Pasta one evening for dinner. Ordered their spinach cheese calzone with a tomato slice of pizza, everything delicious. Not much atmosphere, but great food.

We stopped in to the Prima Pizza and Pasta spot after the Buffalo Sabres game and glad we did. This is some delicious pizza. We went for separate slices as everyone spotted something different they wanted. From plain cheese to the Buffalo wing pizza everything was so yummy. The crust is perfect and not like the regular chain stuff. The... More

I needed some hot food late at night to warm me up with the temperature outside being well below freezing, and after a long drive. Prima Pizza Pasta was located between the parking garage & my hotel and the aroma of fresh pizza wafting around the corner drew me in. A large freshly cooked 17 inch pizza for $20 kept... More

Neat little mom and pop establishment offering a variety of pizza, subs, wings, etc. Very animated and welcoming guy working order counter and cash register. Had a small salad and a whole meatball sub. Both, especially the sub were good. Was my first time here. Will spread word to my fellow airline folks that layover here in Buffalo!

We stumbled across this place not far from our hotel in downtown Buffalo. They have pizza by the slice for lunch and lots of other things for order from the menu. We actually stopped by twice during our stay in Buffalo. Pizza was great, as were the wings.

This place caters to the downtown workers during the week, it is very busy at lunch, but it is also pen on weekends, they seem to do lots of take out orders for full size pizzas. They have been around for years. The slices are generous and tasty. A good choice if you are in a rush.
