Diner Reviews
  • "I have been to Prime Italian many times. The waiter forgot me once the table next to me was filled and he discovered they spoke Italian and were going to be big spenders. My steak was OK, but it was overcooked (I requested Medium). I had to pay $20 for parking which was not on the website. I doubt I will return."

  • "Very good as usual! Great people place on South Beach! Not a traditional Italian eatery. Colossal shrimp cocktail with west coast oysters, Colossal house salad and tender filet mignon!! Great wine selection! Michael our waiter was very attentive and social with good recommendations for both food and wine. Try it! You will enjoy the menu."

  • "The food is good quality but everything is quite a large portion, i imagine to compensate for the above average pricing, the meatball appetizer can certainly be shared between 2 and 4 people, all pastas are shareable between 2 and 3 people."

  • "I have been to PI at least on 5 ocassions, posibly my last in a while, food was ok but pricey which I already know and have no problem with until it becomes more of the same...bread was not good, it is very tasty with cheese, herbs and sauce but it was almost warm. It took forever to get served, I was surprised it was unusually less crowded. Lobster bisque is always very good and the main reason I visit both Prime 112 and Prime Italian. By the way they do not serve tomato soup any more, which was very good. It will be a while for me to return to either Prime 112 or Prime Italian"

  • "My wife and I visited the restaurant because of our anniversary, thinking it was a reputable restaurant for that special occasion. The service was poor. The appetizer was served and the table was without napkins; when we asked the waiter for some he asked us, what kind of napkins? Paper or linen? We could not believe that a restaurant of this category was asking the same, we were completely disappointed. The food is presented in a huge portions not being nice and inviting (average flavor and quality). I do not recommend this restaurant, not worth the expensive cost for the quality of food and poor service."

  • "The Caesar salad is great, and enough for four people at least. The fried buffalo mozzarella is great too. I had the alfredo, another good one. My favorite thing of all? The Ho Ho dessert!!!! This one tops the fried oreos, it's not only rich and chocolatey, but HUGE!!! Def. enough for four!!!!"

  • "Starters big for 1 person. would have been good to get some advice around this before ordering. Requested to order starters and then mains later however chef refused to take order in this way . Good quality but over priced."

  • "It all starts with the cheesy garlic bread, which is delectable and delicious. Having been here a few times, I can honestly say that everything we have tried has been extremely good, not even one mediocre dish to be seen. The truffle mac and cheese is incredible, while the Kobe meatballs and the pasta dishes are excellent as well. Very large portions so be prepared to eat! Fantastic restaurant, 5 stars."

  • "Yes, it's a "red sauce" American-Italian but that truly is underselling what this place is like. Enormous portions and a fabulously varied menu are what will greet you when you inevitably over-order. Highly recommended - the free garlic bread with a perfect tomato sauce - the Kobe Meatball with Spaghetti, the chopped Salad (it’s the size of a Garden!!) Tuna Tartare and Shrimp Cocktail (Each shrimp is the size of a small shark!). Even though, you will be ready for the "over-eaters" ambulance to ferry you away, you must still order dessert and, as tempted as you are by the fried Oreos, I firmly recommend that you order the Ho Ho. It is quite stunning! Pricey… Yes… But worth every penny and every calorie!"

  • "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???"

  • "Our waiter was rude and even though I did not want ANY alcohol he keep insisting in very pushing manner on me ordering drinks. I do not drink, why should I order alcohol? The veal steak was huge and like for 5 people, I can barely taste polenta, because it was in the form of something fried. Also veal had a lot of very rich gravy on it, nobody asked me if I want that gravy on my veal or may be I do not want it? Or may be I want it on a side? The taste of all food is very greasy. I will not come back. I would like to have something more healthy, taste better, portions smaller, waiter polite and nice and not pushing"

  • "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!"
