Excellent pasta dishes.
Also ample portions. Looking forward to a repeat.
Absolutely amazing experience. Service was beyond great. Food was perfect. Drinks were fabulous. 10/10 would recommend
The Bowery street vibe was electric. We sat upstairs and got a great corner table. The classic old New York ambiance was around us as well as the buzz of people having a great time. Our waitress was amazing. She helped with the menu and when we asked to have apps pasta & entree she could not have been more accommodating. The food was excellent the ricotta crostini with truffle honey & hazelnuts is a great way to start. Enjoyed the pasta cacio y Pepe with bucatini executed perfectly. I had the hanger steak with potatoes that were incredible crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside.We all had a great time and were not rushed & the service was attentive & friendly. I am definitely coming back.
Food was amazing!! A must go!!
Great food. Quite a few pasta selections. Local feel. Will come back.
I had the best pasta of my life last night and I’ve been to Italy many times. The service was OUTSTANDING!!! Our waitress made the experience ten times better and all of the staff there were so attentive and kind. We couldn’t stop talking about how incredible bar primi was for the rest of the night after we left. I highly recommend
First time her with boyfriend and loved it! Will definitely come back
Amazing food for a great price in a really cute location. The decor wasn’t anything interesting or cool, but the food speaks for itself. Really fresh and flavorful.
Everything’s was great! Service could have been better, I felt like we waited forever to be waited on. A group way bigger than us who came in after us was served and attended too faster.
Also, I was taking my sister out for her birthday and they brought her the slice of tiramisu with the candle before I could get back from the bathroom. It was a bit disappointing from that aspect but no complaints on food or anything else.
Such a lovely dinner! They didn’t mind us sitting at the bar to start off with a drink and then seating us at our table after our resy time. The food was phenomenal and the service was great. Love the vibe of the restaurant overall
squid ink pasta was amazing!!!
We loved our dining experience. The food was great. The server was friendly and attentive. Will definitely go back.
Incredible pasta. It was really really loud but honestly the food and wine was so good that I will still definitely go back. Vibrant, fun crowd even on a Wednesday night!
absolutely incredible - will be coming many more times in the future!
Fun, delicious, great atmosphere.
We were the last table of the night, but everything was still so good. We got Palomas and the Squid Ink Pasta was amazing. Overall 10/10
It was a friends birthday and we ordered some champagne. The waiter said she would keep it on ice but everytime and refilled it was warmer and warmer.
The pastas are great so is the antipasto salad
Pasta was yummy, chicken looked good too. They were very accommodating. Everyone enjoyed, upbeat and laidback.
Phenomenal 10’s across the board darling
I was disappointed with my dining experience and would love to chat with Bar Primi thank you
Great food, great ambiance, great service! Will definitely come back.
Food was amazing, service was great. Pricing was good.
I am a huge pasta fan!!! I have tried so many pasta places in the city, and I would say I approve of this Italian restaurant. First, the vibe was really good and the set was super cute. There was only outdoor seating available, and honestly it was a bit too hot in NYC, so I was sweating my butt off eating pasta, but all worth it.
They have done a good job practicing social distancing, and staffs were wearing masks too. The only down side was that the service was a bit slow, maybe because it was packed?
I ordered a Soave as my drink and it was the closest drink I can find similar to a Chardonnay. For pasta, I got the Squid Ink Campanelle. It was chewy, rich, and super creamy with a good amount of crab meat. The crab was fresh, and the pepper on the top definitely add a good kick of spice to it for a change of flavor. Love the dish.
I didn't give 5 star review, because I thought the pasta could be a bit more flavorful or saltier? Also, they did not provide any free bread as starter, which I was sad about cause I really love my free CARBS. This is probably the only place that didn't offer free bread. Overall, the food quality was good. I would say the price was high for the amount of food given.
At the end of the day, if you are visiting NYC or in LES, you should try out this place! I love the squid ink pasta and would love to go back to try out the Bolognese pasta next time.
Great food, great place, great area.
Amazing so friendly and the best food!
Great for everyday dining or special occasions. We were there for Mother’s Day and the food was amazing! Always enjoy eating here.
Decent food & drinks. Not the most exciting area in Manhattan.
Pasta was excellent. Perfect for a group dinner
Great brunch selection! The pitchers of mimosas were a little on the smaller side though
Amazing! Will dream about the pancakes 4evr
The meatballs were very good. Service is very fast and server was nice, great ambiance
Great food and service
Had brunch there with a friend and we were both happy with the food, the ambience (outdoors) and especially the service!
Lilly was an excellent waitress. Really made my birthday brunch special
Such a nice vibe. The Brussel sprouts were amazing and so was the lemon chicken
Brussels sprouts were AMAZING. Pasta, chicken was all very delicious. Drinks were flavorful, ambiance was great. It was my first time going and I’ll return for sure
