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
Great staff, managers and owners are amazing!! Highly recommend
Crab scrambled egg crostino was great! Brunch overall was very good.
super deco du restau tres bien !
Birthday was very good
A good, consistent, casual dinner spot. Great food, great service, reasonably priced. Nothing super fancy, but a good local spot to keep in your back pocket.
Hands down the best frose on the planet. Love the meatballs and rice balls too!
Sunday brunch was great
went for brunch and the food was really great. Lots of options to pick from and great service.
I had a delicious birthday dinner here outside and heated. It was great and I went back the next day for brunch.
Fantastic service; great food; brilliant and friendly staff
I’ll come again soon!
It was a very nice experience everyone at the table enjoyed their meals and the price was reasonable.
love it here! always amazing food, great service, and great atmosphere
Great service, experience and price! Loved it! Would highly recommend to pasta lovers!
I’ve been many times and dropped a lot of money at this establishment. Service was horrible compared to previous visits. Egg was basically raw, food came out so late! It’s good but not worth $300 for a brunch of 4.
The food and service was wonderful! Outside setup was warm enough and the inside was well spaced out!
The portions were so much smaller than usual!
The outdoor setup was great! The heaters were perfect and no one was near each other. The food was delicious.
Great Ambience. Warm and Cozy. Ordered a bottle at a great price.
We came here to celebrate Valentines day. I was very excited to try Bar Primi after seeing photos on Instagram. I booked this reservation 3 weeks in advanced and flew in from Florida to celebrate the holiday with my boyfriend. We expected Bar Primi to be one of our highlights from the the trip. The food was very good indeed. The meatballs were our favorite, however I had much higher expectations for the service. Service was slow and it was uncomfortably cold outside which made the long wait to get our food seem even longer. We never received any bread for our table which was a shame because that would have held us over while we waited, and it would have been so good dipped in the leftover tomato sauce from the meatballs. After a long wait between our appetizer and our main dishes, we received the agnolotti and steak dish, but no one came to ask if we wanted any additional parmesan cheese or pepper on our food (both of which we would have appreciated). Actually, no one came at all to ask how our meal was. We also had to eat our main dishes with the same silverware we used for our appetizers.. We were planning to order dessert but the service was so slow we just wanted our bill and to get back to the hotel. While these are not huge things, there are so many other great Italian restaurants in NYC that have better service and better attention to detail. The food was good and we left full, but service was definitely lacking and we do not plan on returning.
Wonderful set-up if you are seated in covered area with heat lamps.
I was impressed with the ambiance during COVID outdoor dining. I dined in less than 35 degree weather and was warm throughout my dining experience. Will definitely come back!
