Cute for brunch but $100 for 2 wasn’t the best value (this included drinks and tip)
A fantastic experience!! Delicious pasta and a great outdoor dining setup.
The food was amazing. We sat outside due to Covid. Nice outdoor seating with lights and heaters made it comfortable despite chilly weather. Service was good, drinks took a bit long to get but other than that, everything was great. Would definitely go back.
They have the heaters for their outdoor dining
One of the best Italian restaurants in the city. I highly recommend the clams.
Truly fantastic! Everything was perfect! The food as always delicious! Thank you!
One of the best meal since pandemic
Amazing food, wonderful service, I can’t stop going back!
EXCELLENT pastas, great cocktails and they did a really nice job expanding their outdoor set up.
Fantastic service and amazing food
The ambiance was phenomenal. From the lighting, to the atmosphere, candles, seating arrangement, and the bathroom. The food was average - nothing to rave about. The meatballs were a little dry, but the truffle bread was the best out of everything we got.
The servers are consistently horrible but the food and drinks are decent. Dint expect great service or a server that knows much about the wine list.
Outstanding, per usual. Service was friendly and accommodating, the food was excellent. First indoor meal since February, very nice!
Great service and food
Server forgot a number of items on our order and I was still charged for them
I personally disliked the food. Couldn’t find the harmony that is supposed to be created between the ingredients. It felt like everything was put on top of each other and hoped for the best. Ate 2 pieces of the beet salad, tasted empty. Had a bite of the hazelnut bread thing, truffle and honey together confused my taste buds. Lastly, cacio e pepe’s lack of taste had been tried to be compensated with high amounts of oil. Which by the wayhad to be made by another type of pasta, since they ran out of the original one. We were the second customer of the day, arrived at an empty restaurant, still took them 10 minutes to seat us. Didn’t have high hopes coming here, still left very disappointed.
They take too long to assign us a table. However, the food was great.
A small bowl of pasta is $26. It’s delicious food but you’ll leave still hungry.
Server was rude, short with myself and the people at the table, not attentive, and honestly just made the dining experience awkward... and it’s brunch. It shouldn’t be any of those things at all.
The waitress was rude. Not only did she try and charge us for an extra drink. She didn’t both to split the wine on our behalf and asked us to do it ourselves and left the table without us telling us she was leaving.
Great food, great service, nice ambience (not the most unique, but very nice). Have been twice, will definitely go back.
The food, wine, desserts & ambience - amazing!
Highly Recommend: The Ricotta Bruschetta
The amazing bartender started the night off right, with great knowledge of wine and the perfect dirty martini. Our table was nicely situated and the food was very good, thanks!
Tasty, loved it!
Great place to eat. Delicious foods from appetizer to main course to dessert. Our waiter Brian was a wonderful. So glad we got together with out of town friends at Bar Primi
Was made to wait over 45 min with a reservation.
We love bar primi. Always perfect.
I enjoyed the Veal very much. Only issue was that tables at this restaurant are pretty small. Would have preferred a bigger table instead of a round small table. I am 6'1 so I assumed the hostess would have realized that I needed a bigger table.
Really enjoyed the food and service was great.
Everything was perfect! Thank you!
One of my favorite restaurants in the Bowery. The pasta is outstanding !
Server was extremely kind and helpful. Food exceeded our expectations. Great wine list.
For an amazing dining experience , I highly recommend Bar Primi. Downtown vibe with delicious and creative food .
Will definitely return!
Got together here for restaurant week. Hostesses were friendly and immediately welcoming; bartender charming and had bar drinks list straight away! Sat next to a regular who was pleasant and talked about her favorite dish.
Once we three had all arrived, we were seated at a wonderful “u” shaped booth. Those seating arrangements are great for two or three tops btw: easy to look at your friends without having to raise your voice or feel like you are cowering over the table.
Our server was genuine and never hovering; always present. Took used plates and glasses promptly.
Now the food: we did restaurant menu this time: I loved the Cauliflower appetizer! Delicious flavor and generous portion. We also had the Burrata. A big serving with nice soft bread. Main course was the chicken mushroom masala with spinach. It was boneless and I cleaned my plate. Friend 1 had the spaghetti (a go-to, but nice!) and friend 2 had the white veal bolognese (like the lady at the bar; it had a solid reputation here and really good).
Dessert: I loved the panna cotta and we also had the gelato (almond). Great value for RW. First time going and I like the vibe. The seating is well laid out. The staff has plaid. So don’t wear it the night you go (joking!). First floor equally as vibrant and festive as second floor.
Extremely mediocre food; tasteless chicken marsala and cacio e pepe pasta was not homemade, as our waiter told us it was
Mediocre pasta, but definitely tasty. A bit overpriced for what you get. But the ambiance and drinks are great. Since it's pretty easy to get a reservation and it's a cool place, I'd come back with a large group for a last minute dinner. But don't expect to be blown away by the pasta.
The reviews we read ahead of time were great. There were very accurate. We absolutely loved Bar Primi. The atmosphere was great. The service was excellent. The food was tremendous. it was a great dining experience. We had a great time and have already recommended it to friends. And we will return to Bar Primi when we come back to NYC.
Restaurant week so it was busy. It was a bit noisy upstairs. Downstars is quieter. I had chicken al limone, it was nice. Service was attentive
The apple in my kale salad still had the grocery sticker attached to it. That was quite off putting haha.
Cute little sign for birthday on table. Great service!
