Penne alla Vodka
Prosciutto & Fresh Peas
w/ Spicy Marinara & Bufala Mozzarella
Reserved a table. When we got there we were asked to sit outside. We ordered right away and didn’t receive our food for just over 1 hour. Food was not up to the standards we had experienced before.
Great Thanksgiving dinner! Fantastic food and service. Steaks were top notch! Worth every penny in our opinion!
Excellent service, varied menu options, well-prepared food overall. The crispy calamari was a bit chewy and food was salty to my taste. The waitress, Cassandra, was a delight.
La pasamos súper
Have been here many times - tonight for a birthday dinner. Fairly busy outside but seated immediately and had water and garlic bread served right away. No touch menu using your phone’s camera to scan it. Had some of our favorites - ridiculously large Prime Italian chopped salad - enough for 5-6. Then had spaghetti with the monster sized Kobe meatball and chicken parm - also enough for 3. Both entrees were excellent. Finally fried Oreos with chocolate sauce and vanilla ice cream for dessert.Food and service were excellent - not rushed as might be the case when they are booked. Not cheap but considering the portion sizes, enough leftover for another 1-2 days.
I do have 2 complaints - the price for the fried Oreos on the menu was $15 but we were charged $16 (didn’t notice until we got home and I looked at the check and the menu). This happened to me once before about a year ago - hopefully this is not one of their standard business practices. The other issue is the tip which is not included. You are given various %options to choose but it doesn’t also show the dollar amount of the tip - and it turns out that they take the percentage of the total AFTER tax which is not the usual way it is done. It should be calculated based on the pre-tax amount.
Hopefully they will rectify both of these issues because the food is excellent.
We made reservations and arrived on time, the hostess then sat us at the table right in front of the front door and a couple of feet away from the hostess table, our table always had people crowded around it waiting to be seated and was very disappointed. Even after I told the hostess it was a wedding anniversary and my wife was not happy, I asked to move to another table right next to our table to be a little further from the door, the hostess refused to move us, the table stayed empty for a full hour before they sat down another party...I guess benefits only come to those who are special...very disappointed and was hoping for a better experience especially on a special night, on my 20th wedding anniversary...thanks
The place was absolutely amazing! We had a great experience definitely will return
Amazing food and ambience however had an 8:30 reservation and we weren’t seated until 9:40. That just cannot happen
Overall food and service was great! Was 10 minutes late and my reservation was given away. Had to wait over an hour to be seated.
No social distancing being reinforced, no mask reinforced and many not wearing one when entering your restaurant. We were seated at the first table by the hostess stand and bar area and asked to be moved. We were told no. Very unhappy with our experience and very uncomfortable with overcrowding around our table. We will tell everyone we know who might considering to go there to not ever go here. We will also be making a formal complaint. You need to realize that your restaurant is spreading covid by not following the recommendations of social distancing and mask wearing. Your signs are posted everywhere that you are enforcing social distancing and mask wearing, so if you are going to post this in black and white lettering you need to follow it.
Kobe meatball and house bread was unrivaled. Special ravioli dish was superb. Michael our server was excellent attentive and personable.
Service and atmosphere was great. My ribeye was very undercooked.
Great table. The waiter Ilir was so professional and nice. The best waiter we have had between prime 112 and prime Italian over the many years of dining there. He personable, friendly, and attentive. The food was perfect too.
The waiter gave us a mozzarella and buratta salad for $44. It should have been one or the other for half the price. Very rude waiter , not peasant to eat there. The food was delicious but bad service.
10/10 the food was to die for and service was always quick
So good and I forgot our waiter’s name but he was amazing with my food allergies!!!
Food was really great , the portions are extremely large , I recommend sharing.
The food was outstanding!. Portions were large. Service was outstanding. Good atmosphere. Would highly recommend!
Very good, as always! Great food, substantial portions, and good service. Will definitely go back time and time again!
Food and service was amazing as always. The atmosphere was great and I would recommend to anyone looking for great food and large portions.
Food is amazing service is great a must go to when I am in Miami for past 5 years
The food is usually excellent. However this time the steak was poor. Service was great. They where packed but tried to be attentive.
My wife’s birthday
Very bad experience. Had to pack our food to go. $220 for a salad, 2 pastas and a pizza that were sub par. Disappointed.
The ambiance was everything! Very nice patio setting and the weather was perfect! Service was great and the drinks were awesome! I tried the shrimp scampi and I was disappointed as I anticipated this dish to be flavorful and delicious, especially after the server recommended it. It was not tasteful at all, very bland. On the other hand, my boyfriend ordered pizza and it was good. Poor guy because I ended up just eating his pizza.
Overall wonderful experience
The meatball is excellent. I’ve always enjoyed it. I almost always go for the one w ricotta. The garlic bread is also delicious. I usually enjoy coming to Prime Italian because they have the same steaks as Prime 112 but without the excessive wait. This time, I was there in a Monday. Not many people at either 112 or Italian. Server came to review the menu and said they had ALL the steaks. But when we decided and ordered, they were basically out of everything. They had NO ribeyes. We wanted two of them, one large (for two) and one regular (for one). Why would you tell us you have ALL the steaks and be out of ALL RIBEYES? Then he checked and they only had four NY strips left. Weak. I should have just paid the bill and went so where else. What a crappy experience on my birthday. At least what we did end up getting was good. But not getting what I wanted was a big disappointment. I got a NY strip. Perfectly cooked and delicious. Can only imagine how good the ribeye would have been. Mac n cheese was tasty. Mashed potatoes very nice. Was not a fan of the creamed spinach.
Great meal and great service!!
Red Snapper was tonight’s special and it was terrible, it was rubber on a plate. Calamari was also over fried. Steak was also mildly overcooked. Creamed corn was amazing though!
The food was great; came out in a timely manner but the service was very south beach(Negative). Server didn’t introduce himself by name and honestly didn’t seem to really care about giving the tables any attention. We had more interactions with the food runners and better service by them than our actual server; not one memorable aspect of the service from that night. If it wasn’t for the food aspect I wouldn’t go again.
Service was amazing. We had a guy from south philly. Super nice. Bread was amazing. Food was like any other mediocre italian restaurant.
Ricky was the best server we’ve ever had and we’ve been coming for years!!!!! Best service ever
Outstanding food and service!
Beatiful place, nice serving. People super nice and food amazing.
Food portions were way too large, we felt terrible at the wastage when so many people in need...
It was great time. Great food, drinks and service
Service and food were great. I celebrated Mother’s Day there before so I was very well acquainted with the delicious food and service. I was A little disappointed that my birthday wasn’t acknowledge as I did put that when I made the reservations it was my 70th birthday. My sons didn’t say anything because they told me to put it in the reservations. I did tell the hostess when I left at that I did put it in the reservations and no one said anything and she asked if I wanted to see a manager and I said no.
Great service but I hated the electronic check out that pressures you to leave a tip right there in front of the waiter
They were able to accommodate a change in the size of our party. Thank you!
