We visit at least once a week. The food is always good. Friendly service and great pizza. Sandwiches are good, too. Ice cream is dreamy.

Great pizza made with all the right Italian ingredients - it reminded me of eating pizza on the streets of Florence. There do not have your typical pepperoni pizza but interesting and authentic options. There is a build your own pizza option. The crust is wonderful - thin, crispy, light and airy. Don't mix this place.

Stopped in on Saturday, July 16, 2016 for a pizza after a day of canoeing down the Zumbro river. Place is small/smaller on the inside but I understand there is seating outside and perhaps on a second level? REALLY busy at about 5:30 in the evening. Never having been here before we ordered a Local - hold the onions. The... More

Stopped by with family on our way to MSP. Well worth the short ride! Excellent service, friendly owners, and great pizza. What more could anyone ask for!

We live 7 miles from Zumbro Falls, but haven't enjoyed the Local Pizzeria until May 2016. The owners used to own Waldo's in Rochester and we liked their pizza. We tried 3 different pies and they were all great. The only suggestion we have is to stuff the crust with cheese. Delivery would be a dream come true, too.

7 of us went there for dinner, fried pickle, pizza & drinks. Excellent service. But the pizzas were the best we ordered a variety, the crust was so good and the toppings scrumptious. Zumbro Falls is very lucky to have this little place. We'll definitely go there again on our next trip. Thank you to the wonderful couple who run... More

Just found this restaurant a month or so ago after reading a review in several local papers. The pizza is more of a Neopolitan but local fresh ingredients make it special. Paul was in the pizza business before and has returned with his wife Peggy. They are fabulous hosts and we are enjoying getting to know them.

We had sausage and mushroom and the ingredients were fresh and tasty. Ice cream for desert in a sugar cone. YUMMMM! Hoping they will add beer... More

We stopped in on a hot day last month because we saw the ice cream sign. The owners were very friendly and were happy to help us with our sundaes! We did not try the pizza, but hear great reviews! They have a very nice little patio area too, if you do not want to sit inside. We shall return!

Ordered pizza from ZF's one Friday night a few weeks back, because it's only about 6 miles away from our house. The pizza was thin crust, and had the ingredients we like on it - totally customized to our tastes. Not only was the pizza one of the best tasting I've ever had, it was cut to our preferences of...
