New Pizza Cucina & Bar Prima Margherita Holding Grand Opening April 3


Des Moines’ newest pizzeria, a ‘Neopolitan Pizza Cucina and Bar’ – Prima Margherita – will be holding its Grand Opening starting at 9:30 a.m. on Wednesday, April 3.

There will be a ribbon cutting ceremony performed by Mayor Dave Kaplan, and you can meet the new owners, tour the new restaurant and taste some of their authentic pizza!

Located in the spot that formerly housed Barnacles (22636 Marine View Drive S., Des Moines; 206-878-0500), this new restaurant will be run by Peppe and Vince – “two gentlemen from Napoli.”
