This was the best food ever. From the moment I walked in my experience was incredible. The service was amazing, the food was bar none and the ambiance was lively. The food was absolutely fantastic and I would recommend anyone to go here. The Apple crostata dessert is life changing.

Food was not excellent. Tomatoes soft in the tomatoe mozz salad, mixed greens salad was very much over dressed and soggy, pasta was a ok but a bit bland.

Rude service.

Bait and switch on wine once again.

Suggest an alternative that was $50 more

Beautiful ambience. Food is excessively overpriced. This restaurant bills itself as Italian but appears to want to be all things to all people. The portion sizes are far too large.

The portions were so big that it made you feel full just looking at it. My pasta came and it was as high as a kite. They took it back and served a meetball that would have fed a small village. The waiter was so surly without a hint of a smile. The food was good quality, but we left without a member of staff saying thank you. We were really looking forward to the experience, but would not recommend or return. What a shame

Very disappointed. Chicken parmigiana was burnt. Then ordered Gnocci came out very soft. Manager said problem with them. Many customer said the same thing. Manager did nothing to compensate us for the inconvenience. I guess they do not care because they are always. Busy. Pretty. This all happened in our wedding anniversary.

We went after I proposed to my now fiancé. I called ahead to tell them about the special occasion. The staff and manager were very gracious and accommodating, and they allowed our parents to sit at the table before the two of us got there so we could surprise her when we walked in. The food was delicious, and they even sent over a very nice dessert platter for the celebration. Wonderful experience!

Salad, meatball and fish special (overpriced) were all very good. We also ordered a chicken parmigiana which was burnt, dry and we returned it.

The manager came over apologized, removed it from bill and sent a desert, which he handled nicely and it was appreciated.

I just don’t comprehend how a dish so poorly prepared can get out of the kitchen. When placed on the table we immediately saw it was overcooked; even though a Saturday night, not “ Prime” oversight.

Tables too close together, too noisy to talk, ridiculous portions. This was for a birthday. They didn’t do anything special as they do in many fine restaurants

So I ordered the Kobe meatball on top of spaghetti. I swear it was ground chunk I definitely would have rather sirloin if it was an option... Prime Italian Kobe meatball, flavorless greasy meatball was so cheap tasting! I’m so disappointed. The tuna appetizer was fresh, and my date had the aged filet with lobster that was great! Sadly, the Presentation was nothing special other than the oversized USDA ground chunk meatball that was passed off as Kobe beef, I overlooked saving any of it...

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.
