    Overall good experience! We have been here many times but not for a few years and it did not disappoint. Our Waiter Ryan was wonderful! 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 !

    Just giving you heads up the reason the prices are high is that it’s a family serving size restaurant which we didn’t know prior to booking it. The service is good but our waiter kept on asking us repeatedly if you were done n so on like they wanted us to eat quick and leave. It was a birthday party and I had to remind him to bring something out with a candle after I requested it in the app. Must places I ve been too usually brings something small out for the birthday dessert but not this place, you will pay full price with the birthday dessert and move on… good food but there are better places to go for the price and issues I’ve discussed.

    Great food overall and the meatball with ricotta is a must try! Good is good but a bit overpriced-rigatoni in vodka for close to 50 is not worth it! Other than that very good place overall

    This is our favorite restaurant in Miami. It’s hard to explain the flavor and taste of all of our entrees were off the charts. Our server was so patient and great with us. And she brought out my Fried Oreos with a candle for my birthday. The portions are huge, so it’s no wonder that everyone leaves with to go boxes.

    It’s been 40 years since I stiffed a waitress. But I had the nastiest waitress ever at prime Italian. Had a $570 bill and I stiffed her. I usually give a 25% tip. If the service really sucks I give 15%. But this waitress deserved to get stiffed. That’s how nasty she was. Would never go back to this restaurant ever again. Been going for many years, but never again. She could care less that there was something that I wasn’t satisfied with. She just blew it off like it didn’t matter. She could’ve called the manager, but she didn’t. Well, I got to blow her off too. Don’t spend your hard earned money on this garbage. If I could give them a zero I would. All because of this nasty waitress. Never again! Just look at all the one stars they have received lately. It’s not just me. These people could care less. SAD!!!!

    Ambience was good and service attentive, but overall food was average at best, and very expensive for the portions. Given the multitude of dining options in South Beach, I would not recommend Prime Italian.

    New Years Eve we made reservations for 1130pm. They close around 1ish. We called and told them we are running a little late bc of traffic on the bridge and they said ok. Arrived at 1140 and they had no table for us. Girl at the front with the red tattoo above her chest actually copped an attitude just because we were asking questions about how could there be no table if we made reservations. What is the point of making reservations?! She made up a bs answer and proceeded to take pictures with her coworkers and bring in the new year. Meanwhile, there were 2 tables we watched get cleaned and we still weren't sat down. Then, a nice gentleman walked up and cancelled 2 tables they were holding for him and we stiiilll didn’t get a table. Around 1215am well after the fireworks finished, new year brought in, were we finally seated. After that fiasco, the service was marvelous. Our server Ryan was fantastic and the food was top tier. We left extremely satisfied. I know the actions of one person doesn’t reflect on everyone else but it definitely affected my experience for New Years. Prime Italian is a great restaurant and I would recommend to anyone looking for great Italian food.

    The worst management. You have to bribe the hostesses to get your table if you don’t you have to wait an hour and a half over your original reservation time. The worst customer service. The manager, Savannah, was not trustworthy at all. Extremely fake. She was acting like you are stupid enough to not see her fake attitude.
