The service was not the best. We were there for a little over 2 .5 hours and after we received our food the server never checked on us. It took almost 45 mins to get our food. So for over an 1.5 hours their was no service. For the raves and price I expected more.

Requested to not be placed in the middle of the restaurant on open table. Waited extra 30 minutes past reservation, went to ask the hostess when we would be seated and then she decided to put us at a table that had been empty for a while... in the middle of all traffic and pretty much on another table. Waiter was attentive but didn’t introduce himself or really get too enthusiastic about anything. Kobe beef lasagna was real good. Rest of food wasn’t anything special. Caesar salad was huge but had wilted lettuce.
Overall not an amazing experience.

Pasta was undercooked on ravioli sent back and it came back the same way crunchy around the edges. Also the risotto had some very bitter greens in it, not good. Service was excellent as the waiter was trying to make things right .

Unfortunately the service was very slow. We did eat outside and that has a tendency to cool the food quickly. The one special course was the lasagna, however all courses should be special. The staff was pleasant, simply not attentive. When a busboy carrying a pitcher of water passed by and was asked for some ice, his reply was that he would get back to us, but never did.

This is the best meal I have had in Miami. Everything was amazing starting with the warm bread and sauce before the appetizer came. We had the barata salad which was delicious. I had the lobster risotto for dinner- huge chunks of lobster! The best I have ever had. Of course we had the fried Oreos for dessert. I highly recommend Prime Italian. Special thanks to our waiter who was able to break down the menu in Spanish as well.

Food was delicious !!!!(Wagyu short rib w/ risoto) Service was very good. Just one star deducted for ambience due to the fact that it was warm inside but that may have been because there were so many people that day.

Everything was wonderful. The food and service were amazing. The only downside was the initial parking situation (valet is across the street at Prime 112) but there was no signage so trial and error. A minor inconvenience in an otherwise great experience.

Great spice menu, quality of the steak doesn’t seem to be as good as it use to be. Prime is more for the scene now then it is for the quality of the food

Went for Miami Spice. It started off very well. From the hostess to the servers, they were very attentive. We were very happy, Then halfway through, once we got our main courses, we kind of got forgotten about. Didn’t check on us if we were ok or not. I could have ordered another drink, but after waiting too long I didn’t. Server Returned after dessert with the check finally. We had a great time regardless, food was amazing, great value for spice, great portions. Meatball pasta plate was generous, so much that we took it to go. Place is beautiful, will be back soon.

Was not that impressed. Perhaps it was due to the fact that they were noticeably very busy and seemingly understaffed. The food was not very good, certainly not at the price levels paid. My guests and I are frequent travelers and eat out extensively, including in Miami. None of us were impressed with the dinner and would probably need to hear of great improvement or favorable reviews before returning.

Very good bread for the appetizer. We did the Miami Spice option and did not leave hungry. Fried Oreos are an absolute must.

Horrible experience as far as this restaurant knowing how to treat customers... especially being a super expensive restaurant. We have eaten at Prime 112 and Prime Fish and they had excellent service, but Prime Italian falls way short!! Starting with the extreme rude hostess at the front, she needs to learn how to talk to customers, especially when we had 7pm reservations for a Birthday dinner and it's 7:25pm and they don't have a table and she is trying to push us to take a table outside in this florida heat & humidity! All this while they had 3 empty tables that she said they were reserved, but we had reservations also! Then when food was brought out after waiting for a while, they only brought 3 of the 4 meals out! One person had sit and watch the others eat!

Prime Italian is a great restaurant located South of Fifth.
It’s part of the Prime family so you know the price will reflect the fame but in my opinion.
We went with two other friends and our children for Miami Spice.
We also had two bottles of wine with our dinner.
We felt the Miami Spice menu was outstanding and the portions were very generous.
The wine also came with a decent price tag.
Overall, we had a great dinner.
Only complaint, and it’s minor, is that the dining room is quite crowded.
Tables are very close to one another.

John was the consummate professional. He met our needs while giving us our space at the same time. The meatball was everything I hoped it would be. My wife had the lobster ravioli and she was blown away. It’s some of the best Italian we’ve had in a long time.

We went for the Miami Spice menu and were disappointed in the flavoring and size of the portions . While the uninspired salad was adequate , the main course of fish was one small filet . Very disappointing . The cannoli dough was undercooked but the fried Oreos were tasty. I would not visit this restaurant again .
