Italian

Primo, which opened in the spring of 2014, is restaurateur Nathan Lindley’s tribute to his own North Chattanooga neighborhood, presented as a classic American-Italian neighborhood restaurant. Taking its culinary direction from the traditional Italian restaurants of the Northeast, Primo celebrates the rich and comforting dishes that were inspired by Italian cooking and influenced by American prosperity.
As a casual neighborhood bar and restaurant, Primo does not accept reservations for a specific time. A limited number of guests may guarantee a waiting table at the 5:00 opening each night. Also, throughout the night guests may call ahead to the restaurant at 423.602.5555 to be added to the waiting list. The dedicated staff and lively communal environment make for a short and enjoyable wait. Come see us soon.

In from WI for the 70.3 Ironman race. All of the entrees were excellent-salmon, filet, four cheese pasta and pasta special. Our server new the details of the menu well and was attentive, but not overwhelming. Overall a good experience. Would highly recommend.

Waiter was overwhelmed and needs further training. He had 5 tables. Took all 5 orders before putting them in(at same time). People that arrived after us revived their food before us. Food was good as always. One of the better dining experiences in Chattanooga!! Great place. Highly recommend. Glad they take reservations now!!

Well worth a visit. I had the pan seared halibut (on point, in temperature and texture, never mind the flavor) and Dana had the mushroom ravioli (homemade), soft and so rich in flavor that they tasted like beef. I highly recommend Il Primo. Prices were reasonable for the value. Our waitress Susie was great.

It's definately one of the best Italian restaurants I've ever been. You'd never go wrong no matter what you order here. The server was so amazing, she goes above and beyond even on the probably one of the busiest day in a year. I'd love to visit here again to try other dishes!

Our server was excellent! We ordered drinks and an appetizer- Baked Feta & Spicy Marinara Garlic Crostini. Very tasty! The Arugula Salad was great! Among the 4 of us, we ordered, Chicken Marsala, Pork Scallopini, Orecchiette & Bolognese & a fish special. Also, sides were, Roasted Butternut Squash & Squash Spaghetti. Everything was cooked perfectly, was a generous proportion & VERY tasty!! So many good entrees on the menu. We will be back!!

It was amazing, as it was our first time going. Our server was awesome, attentive, professional, and very knowledgeable. I forgot her name but she was awesome. We got a cheese plate, fried ravioli, scallions and butternut squash, and the cavatelli. It was an amazing experience and will definitely be frequenting it again.

The ambience was nice as we were sitting outside but with a clear curtain down. There was a heater beside us and overhead which made the temperature perfect on a very cold January night. My wife and I will definitely be back again soon.

Service is always outstanding. Highly recommend making a reservation in advance e as it fills up quick and walk-ins usually end up with a long wait. Super easy to make a reservation off their website.
