  • "We visit Prime Italian as much as we can. From their notable collosal meatball specialty there is something for everyone on the menu. We enjoyed the Zucchini fries, salad, steak, pasta, dessert, etc. It's one of my family's favorite places. Please note that eating outside is terrific as you can spot famous people going into Prime (for steaks) across the street and try to guess the make and model of exotic cars dropping off people."

  • "This is my favourite place to have lunch when I go to the beach at Nikki' s beach. They have lunch specials and excellent mojitos. At this time the surrender area is on construction which make impossible to enjoy lunch at the porch but inside you will hear no noise and the amniance is very tranquil. The service is great even if you are , like me and my firends, in beach dress attire. I love to get off the beach and enjoy Prime Italian atmosfere, service, food and drinks."

  • "As previous customers, we were looking forward to our visit. Service was poor. Drinks took forever to arrive and came to our party of 4 one or two at a time, or had to be requested repeatedly. Family food offerings were presented without serving utensils which had to be requested. Salads were drenched in dressing, most foods were heavily salted, macaroni and cheese were mediocre at best as were other food selections. Waiter was inattentive and had to be hunted down which did not lend itself to an enjoyable, relaxing experience. My mother walks slowly with a cane and we were seated at a table furthest from the check in podium. No one there showed any effort except for informing us that tip was not included. We will not be returning."

  • "You have not seen Miami if you haven't been to Prime Italian/Prime 112. It is amazing, there service is very attentive. It may seem like they rushing you out but they are not. The food portion is definitely to share, they give you a lot. There is drink called "Miami Heat" that is a must try if you're looking for something different. You would not be disappointed, it is truly a gem."

  • "Excellent service that recommended appetizers and entrees to our group which had never dined there before as well as helping to select the perfect bottle of wine. Must try the Kobe meatball appetizer and the fried oreos dessert! And the bread with marinara before you order - to die for!!"

  • "Food cold. Chicken over cooked, hard. Nobody filling up water glasses. Pasta more than al dente , it was hard. Told waitress it was our anniversary , but she totally forgot when the dessert came around. I was hoping for a candle in the dessert that we ordered. Was not crowded , so very disappointed .Will not return!"

  • "If you are a party of four order for two. This is a super-sized restaurant!! A meatball order is one meatball but it weights a pound!! An appetizer order of wings has 16 pieces in it. It's impossible to have an appetizer and a main course all by one self!! You get the picture. Happy grazing"

  • "Prime Italian and Prime 112 are normally busy restaurants, but this past Saturday was ridiculous. Parking was a nightmare. The valet service was not set up to handle all of the cars. Cars were waiting in line for 30 minutes just to give the keys to valet. I actually waited one hour to get my car back after dinner. The valet service was completely disorganized and grossly understaffed. While I recommend Prime Italian, patrons should make sure that there are no events going on near the restaurant on the night you want to dine there. If there are, do not go unless you are prepared to be very frustrated and late in arriving and leaving the restaurant."

  • "Although I love the food. & aumbiance, I feel like the servers just want you outta there so that they can seat the next group. Yes, the servers are attentive. & bring you want you need but it also comes with this feeling of pressure,, get outta here !"

  • "Have been to Prime 112 several times before trying this restaurant for the first time. Food here is great - very similar in that most dishes are big and heavy. Can definitely share. Tried the grilled watermelon salad which was to-die-for. The service was great - very attentive and not too pushy. We were given plenty of time between courses. Would come back again, for sure, if not just for the salad."

  • "This is a restaurant here the Bentleys are parked outside, the steak is overcooked and they charge extra for steak sauce. Where the waiters casually shout out $65 salad appetizer specials to you over the crowded rush of people spilling out of the bar that end up huddling over the diners who are also shouting to be heard over the loud ex frat boys watching basketball on the big screen TV , while others mine giant one pound meatballs of Kobe beef on spaghetti and push away bowls of truffled this and truffled that. Not a fine dining experience but ladies will fit right in if they wear their too tight sequined outfits and love to shout while they eat."

  • "The restaurant was everything we hoped for! The place was kid friendly, and the wait staff was very friendly! Then came the best part, the food! Everything we ordered was delicious and the portions were enough for two or three people. Water glasses never empty and fresh silverware was always supplied. A perfect Italian gem! Can't wait to go again!"

  • "The food here is amazing. Great service - very friendly service and were able to give great recommendations. Always at the table when you want them to be. The food is so delicious. Meatballs are the best, and the bread to start can't be beat. Eggplant Parm is another family favorite at Prime Italian. The bread pudding for dessert is heavenly. My entire group of 8 is still talking about it a week later. Nutella cake also a very very close 2nd."

  • "The waiter tried upselling agressively . The food was plentiful but poor. The $20 crab cake had little or no fresh white lump meat. The tomato sauce tasted as though it came from a jar. It was difficult to talk over the noise. For the same price point go to The Dutch."

  • "TIME TO BE SEATED I read all the reviews about people making reservations just to have to wait 1.5 hours to be seated. Therefore booked a 5:30 PM Saturday reservation to try to avoid peak times. Arrived 30 minutes late due to traffic and found the restaurant empty. Was seated immediately. By 7:00 PM, the restaurant was packed as was the sidewalk on front of the restaurant with people waiting. FOOD The food was wonderful. Loved that they had some creative options on their menu. They have a lot of Kobe beef options. Had a Kobe beef meatball as an appetizer. It was enormous and delicious. Could not finish it. Had a good Chicken Parmesan Soup. The Kobe beef lasagna was great. Portions are huge. Plan on sharing or taking left overs home."

  • "Not my first time here. It's always great food. Kobe meatball is off the chain. The Proscuitto anit-pasto platter is good. The sea bass is excellent. I'm never disappointed when I go. Parking on the other hand, well, its South Beach. Valet, valet, Valet and save your self the aggravation. It's wll worth it."

  • "The food was great, the portions are pretty big we had to take food back home. I wasn't impress by the lychee Martini I had 2 and it didn't have any alcohol so if you like to taste alcohol in your drinks don't waste $15 on this one because it's a waste of time. I also didn't like to be rush on placing my order the waitress wanted to take our drinks order, appetizer and main course all at once."

  • "Prime Italian is one of my fav restaurants in SoBe. I go multiple times when I'm here for vacation. After two visits this trip, I have to say that I felt rushed and hassled at the restaurant both times . Finally had to ask that we not be rushed and hassled about placing orders, taking food and plates away before people were done. I wasn't the only person to notice it. It was particularly bad one evening but I will say once the table expressed frustration over the interruptions, we were allowed to enjoy our cocktails and food at an acceptable pace. I'll definitely go back. Will just be clear about why I'm there and not to be rushed. Food was great as always."

  • "I usually go with the waiter's recommendation if I feel they are an experienced waiter. In our case, he was and his recommendations from start to finish were perfect. We had the meatball w/ ricotta followed by a nicely displayed sliced 30 oz bone in rib-eye. Perfectly cooked and so flavorful. The fried Oreos for dessert were like no other. A must if you still have room. Portions are for sharing here. Excellent service and great atmosphere. We sat outside since it was nice and cool that evening."

  • "We really enjoyed taking our out of town guests to Prime Italian. We had great service from Amos and the food was also great. It can be a little pricey but the food portions are huge. The bread that they severved with the meal was also amazing. The place was packed on a Saturday night, but unlike others that had problems getting their table, we only had to wait 5/10 minutes for our reservation. The atmosphere was also great, we had a spot outside and enjoyed watching all the people on the street..."
