The food was absolutely delicious as always. I had a petite filet Oscar style. I also had 2 espresso martinis and fried Oreos. Yum.

This was a Mother's Day celebration for my wife and family. The only reason I'm giving them a 3 star due to us getting put us outside even do we made reservations. They didn't care about that so we sat outside in the heat and noise. Now let's talk about food it was very good not great (not for the price). Service was also good.

The crowd went downhill cause the profound music they allow to play! Was not the same as it used to be which is a shame but could come back if was managed correctly

Food and service was great, and we love going there when we visit Miami. Our recent visit was a touch different to Miami as the scene seemed a little less classier than it has been in the past, and that is spilling out on to the streets of Miami and you can see and hear it while you dine.

For years Prime Italian was a superb restaurant with excellent food and service beyond reproach. Until two days ago I had never had a meal that I would not describe as exceptional with service that was equally outstanding. However after my experience 2 days ago I will never return. Which saddens me. I could only characterize the service as dismal or worse than that. It took 20 minutes to get drinks, 30 minutes to get one iced tea which was bottled. And to add insult to injury it took them 25 minutes to bring a piece of cake that only had to be cut and plated. We ordered cauliflower and received calamari. They claimed both words were so similar the kitchen couldn’t tell the difference. They had a Caesar salad that was fantastic,family style, generously portioned with the dressing well distributed and good Parmesan cheese shavings on top. What came to the table was a shadow of what it used to be. Smaller portion, dressing was mediocre & the shavings appeared to be from some cheese but questionable whether it was Parmesan. My husband ordered angel hair pasta, took one bite and shoved the plate to the side. Declared it inedible. And he’s not really that picky. Experience was truly bad. All my previous reviews reflected the quality of food and service they had before. Don’t understand how they could have allowed this to get to this point.So if I want to spend an exorbitant amount of money on dining, I’ll go somewhere else. No shortage of great places in Miami.

Good location in South Beach. Food was plentiful (very large portions) but truly, just so-so. Would not go back.

Everything was amazing. Service was great. Everyone was very friendly. And the food was phenomenal. We had the meatball pizza, meatball and spaghetti, short rib risotto, beefsteak tomato salad, and I drank the Miami heat. Even the bread was off the charts. Outdoor seating at sunset was lovely.

I’ve been hearing about this place for years from friends in Miami but to be honest I wasn’t impressed at all. It’s a good place to go but it doesn’t live up to the free marketing it receives. The food was average, service was good though (I’ll praise our waiter) but the layout of the restaurant was weird (tables on top of each-other, people hitting chairs, etc.). I like their steakhouse Prime 112 which was a far better experience than Prime Italian.

Fabulous food and service. The Kobe meatball appetizer is amazing and could be an entree for one. Veal Chop was perfection. Excellent and reasonably priced Caviar service.
Cheesy bread that comes with all meals is delicious. Pomegranate Martinis were also perfect. What else ?
Great wine list but they also allow outside wine if you want to bring that special bottle.
Our new #1 favorite place in Miami Beach

The dining was nice but the waiter didn’t attend to our table. We were a table of 2 and a table next to us a table of six, our waiter checked on them several times In front of us while not checking in on us. Bread is complimentary and it came out the same time as the food, so we weren’t able to snack on the bread before food came out. I asked for penne and got spaghetti... it was just aggravating because I like it there but that night wasn’t what I expected. very disappointed.

Great evening of food and wine. The Kobe Meatball appetizer was awesome. We had the Jumbo shrimp Scampi and Bone in Veal Chop - perfectly prepared. Finally the fried Oreos with Grenache were amazing. Very nice Italian server. We’re going back again before we head home.

There are plenty of other restaurants in the area with better food for less $. $29 for angel hair pasta with tomato sauce is crazy.

I would have rated the overall experience outstanding except for two things.

1) first server (we had two) was too aggressive in taking our drink and food order. She didn’t give us sufficient time to “digest” the alcohol and dinner menus. She was on us almost immediately asking for our orders.

2) think it’s unconscionable that the restaurant charges $10 for a second loaf of cheese bread when the first one is complimentary.

Food is outstanding. We had the 500 day aged prosciutto and it was amazing. We had two of the specials and two of the pasta dishes. All with the freshest on ingredients. Only negative is the prices are on the higher side, but definitely treat yourself to this wonderful restaurant.

Our server did not know the wine list.... could not explain or recommend a wine. Picked two bottles and they were sold out. Asked for a recommendation and she could not give info regarding wines. My steak was ordered medium rare and it came almost medium well~~~ she said, well I can send it back, but it will take awhile. She new it wasn’t right. I even asked her that she put the order in medium rare. We poured our wine the entire night, but at the end when she had our check. We frequent~~~ Had a 5:45 dinner so very early~ service should be spot on and wasn’t. So disappointed.

We were so pleased with Prime Italian. My only complaint is we’re staying in a hotel with no fridge for our leftovers. The portions are huge and everything was amazing- the food and the service! Will definitely be back.
