Primo has the BEST DELIVERY around. The pizza is always fresh like it came fresh out of the oven. They really have the best sauce too!

We ordered a pizza here that was really good--recommended by the guy working upfront. What really stood out was that the people working there knew almost everyone who came in by name and often knew what they ordered. It must be a good sign if people keep coming back that often.

I had the meat lasagna which was the best I've had in a long time. The pizza looked great. The traffic in and out was... More

The pizza was great, very light and easy to eat. Ordering online and taking 5 minutes to go get it was a breeze.

I found Primo Pizza & Pasta on TripAdvisor and I am so glad I did. We were visiting Carlsbad from out of town and I badly needed a reasonably priced meal that wasn't fast food. This place really hit the spot. I had the linguine vegetarian, my wife had the tortellini with chicken, and my children each had their own... More

The first time I got the BBQ Chicken, I highly recommend it. The second time we just got a huge cheese with extra cheese to share with the family - also delicious.... More

I have been going too Primo Pizza for the past 6 months. Lunch and Dinner, they are great! I'm originally from New York and I think Primo Pizza is better. There Ravioli's are great, the Sauce is fantastic. Everything I have ever eaten there is delicious. They have this chicken Linguini dish they call Linguini Pollo Puttanesca to die for.... More

We stop here every time we visit Legoland. The food is delicious, the staff is amazing and the prices are fair. Love the atmosphere. Sufficient parking in the back of the shopping center. Even the customers are friendly, 2 different tables were willing to move to accommodate our family of 6. I will continue to eat here every time I'm... More

Pleasantly surprised! We enjoyed and recommend Lemon Chicken Pasta and Seafood Linguini. Our boys really enjoyed sausage and pepperoni Calzones. They were massive. Tiramisu was great way to end the meal!
