Great food and timely service.Great food and timely service. Nice place for dinner before the theater.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food and people watching!We sat out on the patio on a Saturday night and watched people going in to the events at the Denver Center! Perfect people watching spot and terrific food and service. One of us eats non-dairy and there were literally NO dessert options and pretty much every salad has some cheese on it. Easy enough to get them to hold the cheese on the salad, but without it and the bacon the arugula salad was kind of plain.
The beef tenderloin dish was excellent and so were the seared scallops! Again, there is dairy on pretty much every side dish so that was frustrating, but overall the food is wonderful. Great martinis too!
Will definitely return.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent for vegetarians!!!Great menu for vegetarians. Many choices and reasonably priced. Great for a date and wines are amazing!! Best Italian in downtown by far.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMPersonalized ServiceWe chose Prima because of it's proximity to the DPAC and our show tickets. We got stuck in very heavy traffic on I-25 coming from Parker. When it became obvious that we would be late getting to Prima, we called and they were very understanding and indicated that they would hold our reservation. They were extremely courteous and got us a table right away when we arrived 45 mins. late. They also promised to get us fed and out in time for the show. They delivered! And they did it all without making us feel that we were rushed.
Our Server was helpful, knowledgeable and efficient while always making us feel that we were her number 1 customers. On top of all this great service the food was delicious. A nice varied menu with great preparation.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMPre Theater FavPrima is very conveniently located near Denver's performing Arts Center and the staff is geared to getting you out in time to make your curtain. Interesting tasty appetizer menu, many of which could make a light meal--the calimari is a must! Very good value is to be found in their daily prix fixe menu--generous servings. Our server, Rachael, jsut two days into her job, was ehgaging, attentive and very competent, making this a pleasant dining experience.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMSurprisingly easy accessI had thought it'd be a real pain to eat at the Prima Ristorante because of its location. The valet service was quick, friendly and no hassle. We found the waitress to be very courteous and were seated promptly. I recommend the 3 course prefix, takes all the guess work out and was delicious.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMDeliciousThis place is great. We had the tenderloin and the burger. The burger was very flavorful and the tenderloin melts in your mouth! Highly recommend and will be high on my list for downtown restaurants.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMPre-TheatreReally enjoyed our meal. Great service. Reasonable price. Easy stop prior to theatre at DCPA.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMA friend and I usually dineA friend and I usually dine here before going to the Denver Center for Performing Arts productions because the restaurant is close and it's geared to getting diners out in time to make opening curtain for the performances. Wednesday night was no exception -- except the food was exceptional. The seared scallops were amazing - served atop a carrot pistachio risotto. We could have licked our plates clean, but there wasn't anything left to lick. This was the best preparation of scallops I've ever had.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMPrima Restaurante has beenPrima Restaurante has been a favorite for us for a long time. Starting with the food, which is wonderful, and then the location, which is also very convenient for the downtown area of Denver. I would also suggest that the three part fixed menu offering is a great bargain and well worth it.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat place to dine beforegreat place to dine before attending the DCPA. Service was personable and efficient. The scallops were tasty. The pork was not. They were accommodating- offered another entree and gave us wine vouchers for next time. would definitely try it again.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMSecond visit made up for past sinsOn an earlier visit, the food was excellent, but the service was dismal. We had to seek help from the manager. This time both were excellent. I believe our most recent visit was more indicative of their norm. Try the fig brulee - delicious. We will be back. It's also extremely convenient to the Performing Arts Center.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGenerally, a great restaurantGenerally, a great restaurant with terrific food and service.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Waitstaff!The food was wonderful! Our waiter was attentive and knowledgable. We would definitely come back. Thank you.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were in a bit of a hurryWe were in a bit of a hurry to make the Nuggets game, and the staff/service exceeded our expectations.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMWow. I didn't think gnocchiWow. I didn't think gnocchi could really send me over the top but this is mention-worthy. The cheese gnocchi in a veal bolognese sauce was so good I cut each gnocchi in half so I could savor the meal slowly and so it wouldn't end too soon.
I dined alone and the server had the decency to pace my meal well and let me read without being interrupted or having to chat too much.11/8/2012 12:00:00 AM
