  • "My wife and I love this spot in Miami Beach. We love the "GIANT" veal meatball a top creamy polenta. The steaks are also to die for. Be sure to give this one a place on any visit to this amazing city! CIAO!"

  • "I have eaten here and recommend this place over and over. Perhaps they were having a bad evening. The service was fair as well as the food. I will give it another go at some point but lets see how it goes"

  • "We visit SB several times a year. We tried Prime Italian after it first opened and now is our #1 not to miss, go to spot for a really great dinner and evening. Superb menu with great variety and honestly we have not had a bad dish from the many we have ordered! Sister restaurant to the steakhouse Prime 112 across the street and bonus with outdoor seating is the people watching as they come and go to both places. Top caliber service and pricing at a fair level being SB and top class food. Go once and you will be back many times!!!"

  • "When spending 100a person I'd expect more from the service. Seemed like they rushed me out the door and it wasn't even busy. When we asked for a cab. We were told that they don't call for cabs And we should walk and find one on the street. Well it was raining???"

  • "In town on vacation/ Business yet it was memorial day weekend and there was an immense amount of rift raft in the city, we might of appeared as if we were associated with the rift raft and so received not the most ideal service, seemed like we were annoying the server with questions and other more "promising" tables got more attentive service. Good thing the food Overshadowed the Mean bald guy server. Chicken Parm Soup was OMG GOOD! Red Velvet cake was awesome and the backwaters were incredibly attentive and helpful. All and all id run back when I am in the area again!"

  • "I have been to Prime Italian on numerous occasions and it never disappoints. Less showy then Prime 112 across the street and they actually respect reservations. Portions are huge so sharing is necessary. Love the Kobe meatball and the veal parm. "

  • "we enjoyed our dinner here. the only complaint i have is that we were seated at a tiny table for 2 right behind the reservation desk and the table was wobbly. not the best table or seat location. hostesses were a bit aloof. our waitress did try to fix our wobbly table issue though."

  • "Came for a family dinner in celebration of my graduation from UM. We had been to a French place and a modern-American place, and being Italian, I wanted our last night to be a little more traditional. Having heard about the famous Prime 112 for years, I figured we'd try out their Italian offshoot, which is comprised of many similar menu items bolstered by Italian offerings. The food was very good, I was a little disappointed in my American Kobe steak special on its own, but the seared foie gras it was served with (basically cheating in the culinary world, and I'm totally cool with that) brought it up a notch. Salads are huge, the lobster risotto was easily the best thing any of us got all night. Our server was a little rude, but it was ok."

  • "My family and I dined here to celebrate my son's college graduation. The food was delicious and the service was great. Our server was 'spot on' in describing the dishes and the amounts they served...we sometimes tend to over order, so it was really refreshing to order the appropriate amount of food. Eventhough Prime Italian is one of the premier dining spots in South Beach, the atmosphere was not pretensious..we loved it!"

  • "One of my favorite restaurants and one I visit frequently. This past visit the food quality was not of the normal high quality. I will certainly be back soon but if the food quality is not back to normal I'll certainly be exploring other options. "

  • "Known more for their 1 lb. Kobe meat ball and as the little sister of Prime 112, Prime Italian will forever be remembered by me as having the most amazing Philly cheesesteak sandwich on the planet. Yep, 100% USDA prime beef, white truffle provolone, onions and peppers on a soft brioche. When paired with a bottle of Guado Al Tasso, it's impossible to beat."

  • "We have been here several times during trips this year to Miami. As always the meatball was phenomenal!! We also enjoyed a special on the appetizer menu which included lobster, tomato, basil, and Buratta. The seafood ravioli was also prepared to perfection and the sauce was wonderfully flavored and just the right amount was provided. The ribeye was served sliced as requested and juicy and delicious. "

  • "We make several trips to SB every year. Big part of it is enjoying the MANY excellent restaurants SB has to offer. We have been to literally hundreds of "the best" of all types of cuisines in the SB and Miami area. Prime Italian for us is THE BEST of ALL the restaurants we have been to. Every different entree we have had there have been outstanding from Italian to steak to seafood to desserts. Superb service with a great location. Many SB "featured" restaurants have left us FAR from happy but Prime Italian has delivered 100% every time. Worth the cost, time and effort. Do be sure to make reservations as it will be packed during prime days and times. Simply A+++ across the board!!!!"

  • "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."

  • "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!"
