Apart from the fact that i had to wait 15 min to get a menu and 40 min to have a pizza the pizza was really good. The service is a point for caution: they delivered somebody else's pizza the first time and then they realized the mistake and ordered mine. One tip: if you want to try it do... More

We found this pizzeria on trip advisor as one of best in the city and we weren't happy with our choice. We had a good salad for a starter. Pizza wasn't so tasty as we expected and in fact we were done with our dinner after half plate. We choose a Glas of vine from a very ordinary menu, not... More

Small, three person operation cranking out delicious wood-fired pizza. Very large selection of pizzas but only one or two wines but the one we had was delicious. The restaurant got pretty busy but the service remained friendly and attentive. Simple ingredients make very tasty pizza.

Simple, clean pizzeria. Since 30 years definitely the best pizza-baking, ice cream making place in the region. Indoor and outdoor sitting possibilities. Only weakness: wine list, maybe enjoy a beer with your pizza.. ;-)

I write this review being a resident to Locarno now for 1,5 years and trying many pizzeria's in the area. It is simple. Do not waste your time in the piazza Grande. A very short walk one street upwards and left gets you straight in front of Primavera. Pizza is prepared in an wood fired oven, not a gas commercial... More

We sat outside and it was nice to be away from the crowds of Piazza Grande! The service was quick and friendly, and most importantly the pizza was very good! Very generous toppings and thin crust.

I was craving for a pizza and tired of the ”tourist trap” when I found this place on Tripadvisor. Don’t expect a nice place, the restaurant is old and ugly, however the pizza is delicious and prices are unbeatable! It’s definitely worth a try!

This is a simple no-nonsense place. The menu offers almost exclusively their brick-oven pizzas, and some gelatos. The staff is efficient and courteous, and the terrace is spacious, quiet and enjoyable although not offering any stunning views of Locarno's old town. The pizza however really is worth going there! Very tasty, the dough remains crusty even when the pizza is... More
