I worked here 2002 to 2003 and this place is great, good food and options and right in Chippewa street. :) I would highly recommend to anyone looking for food after a football game or checking out the night life in Buffalo.

Stumbled past here while out on an adventure, and decided to give it a try. Since it was lunch time, there were lunch specials available. Lots of choices, pizza and calzones. We both had pizza slices. Large slices, good food.

It's a block away from the Comfort Suites Downtown Buffalo where we spent 4 nights. (Great hotel, btw) Hungry for pizza one night but didn't want to sit in a resto so we ordered takeout and I wandered in to pick it up. Very friendly behind the counter. Reasonably priced. And excellent pizza! Very good tomato sauce, lots and lots... More

I had wanted to do the touristy wings places, but we just didn't have time. So I looked up pizza places on my Google Maps app and found Prima just a couple blocks away. We walked down in the evening and got a small pie for my daughter and I and a 10 count of boneless wings. It took a... More

Staying at double tree hotel, decided we didn't want to go out. Ordered spaghetti and meatballs, turkey sub, and tacos. Everything was wonderful, tasted great, was fresh, and fast delivery. So glad we made the choice we did. Had the heat turned up, watched the tv channel we wanted, and had great food.

Was looking for a great slice after the sabres game on April 11. Place was clean had great atmosphere. Slices were small not fresh at all. Had a look of a pizza that was left on the coffee table overnight. Overall will not go back

Prima pizza was our first new york pizza experience. It did not disappoint !. The breadsticks are amazing, the pizza piled high with toppings. Very affordable, friendly staff.

What can I say? I've tried the pizza (regular and Sicilian), I've tried the calzones, I've tried everything. The food is amazing! Perfecto! I crave Prima's like no other. Plus it's a great place to hangout. If you haven't tried this place make it your next stop!!!!

City style pizza/sub place. I had a ham, provolone sub that was great. Next day tried the pizza and it was good but just average. Fast service. Eat in or carry out. Good for a quick meal that wont break the bank.
