Given today’s unusual circumstances, everyone at Pizzaria Locale is just thrilled to be open and able to serve the community we love. Since owners Bobby Stuckey and Lachlan Mackinnon-Patterson of Frasca Food and Wine opened doors in 2011, elegantly casual Pizzeria Locale has been going a mile high to offer a supreme Napolitano pizzeria experience. From importing a custom-built Stefano Ferrara oven to sourcing the best ingredients available, every detail is taken into consideration when it comes to perfecting the full dining experience. Great pizza starts with great hospitality, from the pizzaiolos artfully cooking the pizzas to the bartender making the spritzes. Combining their favorite aspects of southern Italian food and wine culture while nestled in the foothills of the Front Range, the team at Pizzaria Locale consider it an honor to be called the best in anything. Moreover, however, they embrace it as a call to continue to push for an even greater experience and an even better pizza. 1730 Pearl St., Boulder, 303.442.3003, localeboulder.com.
