    Ilir (Server) is the absolute best server in Miami. When you visit Prime Italian, you need to request Ilir if want want to have the best dining experience. The food and atmosphere is great, however the experience will never match the expectation without Ilir.

    A great price for a broad array of top quality, delicious food choices. The meat carving station was outstanding. The only issue was the food buffet circling the bar was difficult to access with the overcrowded room. The ambiance was overly noisy and busy with baby strollers, etc. yes, it was Mother’s Day brunch so I get it but you should designate a family area for babies and toddlers separate from the rest.

    Prime Italian has had its better days. This restaurant needs a major update. The restaurant is outdated and beat up. Menu covers are threadbare, tables are in poor physical condition. Food is marginal and service is indifferent. Portions are huge - we were a party of two with enough food to feed six - waiter did not advise or guide us in ordering - did not advise on specials either. This restaurant was good 20 years ago but it feels as not a dime has gone into it since. I do not recommend to anyone who values their money and who seeks a good dining experience.

    We did not have a good experience. We waited 1 and a half hours for our food to come after ordering. Many other tables sat and ate during the same time. One person at our table order was incorrect. The server said we will redo the meal in the next 5 min. Another 45 min pass everyone else was done with meals. We told them to forget it it’s too late now. They removed the charge for that dish. The manger not servers never apologized or tried to make it right.

    I was very disappointed. I ordered Ruffino Oro and was served a bottle of Ruffino tan label. The waiter I told me it was the correct bottle and I had to insist that it was not the correct bottle. He then told me he would tell management of vine error.

    I dinned here twice within a month, both of the experiences were terrible. I had asked the waitress about the meal being gluten free several times, as i had known the meal from previous times, he ended up serving it, claiming it was gluten free, even though, it was not. Lucky me, that i knew. If someone had ordered it and trusted him, it would have been a real issue. Also, the taste of all our meals was not good at all. I will never go again…

    The chicken Parmesan was super yummy, but wasn’t expecting to have ricotta cheese on top of mozzarella this added a different flavor to the chicken parm. Beef, steak tomato salad was amazing A+ and the pasta seafood was absolutely amazing. All the seafood is fresh and tasty, and the shrimp was huge l. Unfortunate that it cost additional for another loaf of bread, and addition to the original piece of bread for a family of five.

    Waiter came over immediately, started out like it was going to be excellent from the the beginning They brought the bread, which got extremely hard in a matter of minutes, telling me that it was warmed in a Microwave We placed the order. The Appetizer came, stuffed meatball, good although extremely salty, probably could have been excellent with a lot less salt Then the mains came They brought all of my date's food, brought my Veal Chop Parm, but no LOBSTER MAC! I looked around for the waiter, no less than 5 minutes later he appeared asking how everything was, I said good but where's the Lobster Mac? His response was, they didn't deliver it? I'll get it right away! Needless to say, 15 minutes later (meaning he never ordered it, it came out piping hot, when we were already done, the other guy dropped it on the table and ran Waiter never offered any compensation, I should have asked for a Manager at that point but I was on 1st date, didn't want to create a scene Should have been deducted from the check, ate 2 bites, brought the rest home Will eat it tomorrow, I'm sure it won't be as good Very expensive dinner, not great, disappointing in fact Thanks, Phil

Friendly and accommodating There was good support staff too so service was great. Despite it being crowded and a half hour wait after our reservation hostess was lovely and they comped us on desert. Food came out quickly and was delicious as always. The cheesy bread with Tomato sauce to dip is Soo good as was the Prime chopped salad We had Kobe Meatballs and spaghetti which was also quite good We will be back !
