Food and service were excellent. You should expect a pricier check, but lots can be shared. 2 couples shared the 48 oz porterhouse @$155 so not bad
Will definitely return when in South Beach again

Prime Italian was a great spot I chose for lunch! Conveniently located near south beach, this restaurant served up some wonderful dishes along with great cocktails. I had the strawberry purée and watermelon cocktail during my meal. The spaghetti with Kobe meatball is a large portion, probably meant to share. It is delicious. I also had to try the lobster Mac and cheese.. highly recommend. The fried Oreos for desert come with vanilla icecream. The garlic bread you receive before the meal even starts is also to die for.. but save some room for the main course haha. Service is fairly quick and everyone is friendly. All in all, a great experience and I’d go back.

I am from NYC and I can honestly say I have nothing to compare Prime Italian to. We had fried Buffalo, fettuccine Alfredo, and linguine and clams. Absolutely fresh, delicious and made authentically. The garlic bread is unreal, too!

We brought our cousins from out of town and they were blown away. The service is always excellent and the food is delicious. we changed up our play a bit by finishing with the fried oreos instead of starting with them.

The team, especially Shannon makes our son Ryan feel like a big shot and a regular, as they engage and joke with him.

We can't wait to come back.

The food was very average. I had higher expectations considering it’s a high end restaurant. I ordered penne a la vodka. I had it many times in various restaurants. I expected in a high price restaurant to be authentic with sautéed pancetta or sautéed prosciutto usually cooked in the sauce to give it that special flavor. Instead they added just raw bunches of prosciutto on the side of ordinary marinara sauce with a touch of cream. My husband’s chicken Parmesan was also below average. They went for quantity instead of quality. The ambiance was good but the quality was not there.

Daughter’s 30th birthday. Everything was great. The server and Support staff was excellent. Upscale but not stuffy. The only negative was when we arrived it was almost as if our reservation on open table didn’t matter even though I called ahead of time and confirmed. I was patient and they rearranged a table to accommodate us.

Food was good, we were seated right away, it was busy due to it being Valentine’s of course. I feel our waitress could’ve been more personable but my food was good. She packed our food to go but with no napkins nor forks so couldn’t enjoy it next day at the hotel.

Horrible service. Could never find our waiter and we were there at 4 with very few tables seated. Seated for an hour and only saw him twice and our order was never taken. Had to ask the hostess for him twice and another server. Cold appetizer had to be sent back. Asked for the manager and he made excuses instead of taking accountability. Not the first time I’ve had bad service at prime. The food and drinks are excellent but when you are paying top dollar the service should reflect it. Very disappointed.

Out of the four nights we spent in Miami we had dinner here twice.

Our server - the best - David. He’s got you. He also knows his stuff. Best server, made everything a notch up.

Espresso Martini with a shot of Baileys, yes please.

Calamari, of course.
Ahi poke special as an appetizer- do not pass on this.

Bolognese lasagna, chicken parm, lobster ravioli. Sea bass w/Parmesan risotto. Fantastic!

And David’s recommendation - Fried Oreos - both nights. Don’t miss it, just don’t.

Did I mention a very vibrant atmosphere - in the world we’ve been living in for the last year, don’t deprive yourself at a chance to literally forget about it all for a while.

Make the reservation now.

Came to the table and plates and cups were dirty. Took a while to clean up. Table was sticky too. Food took forever and was overall not great. Chicken parm was sub par and took well over 45 minutes to cook. Drinks were not good either, the only thing that was quick was our waiter coming over to run our credit cards.

Maybe it was an off night or we got caught in the middle of a server change, but we sat there for over an hour with only one drink and no food (didn’t even have the option to put in an order). It had been over 30 minutes since we had last seen our server. I had to ask another sever what happened to ours and he said he would take our order. He was fine but at this point the evening was ruined. When asked what happened to our original server he did not have an answer. When the food arrived it was dry and overdone and I was done with the place. It will be awhile before we go back...

I’m from philly and after eating at prime Italian I am upset because of the service and attention me and my friends got. The server never came back he made my medium rare steak well. Took forever with the check didn’t apologize for anything we waited over an hour for our food . I’m in the service industry communication goes a long way. I would probably never go there again or any of their brother sister restaurants. I’m extremely sad that that occurred. The waiter just didn’t seem to care. We had to box our food up because everything was cold we ate cold food in the hotel room after spending hundreds of dollars. If I wasn’t in the industry I wouldn’t have tipped them and I would’ve returned everything but I’m not like that. We tipped 18 percent which is still good but less then what I normally tip. Just an overall bad experience.
