All 3 of us were happy with the meals. The Ravioli special that night in vodka sauce was extremely tasty.. The chicken Marsala my wife said it was the best she had ever had. We will be back for sure.

Food was amazing. Did have to ask for bread. However, received quick service. I did state it was my husband’s birthday. I wish they would have at least acknowledged it.
All in all, one of our favorite restaurants because of the food!

We love Il Primo for date night! We love Lobster Risotto and half-price bubbly on Tuesdays. We never go without getting a charcuterie... Fabulous food, excellent staff, beautiful space.

I’ve never had a bad experience here. This was my first dining experience during the COVID-19 pandemic and I felt completely safe. The employees were wearing masks (appropriately, which is rare) and the tables were adequately spaced. There weren’t large gatherings of people either inside or outside their front door. I’d highly recommend giving them a chance if you’re ready to get out.

We were able to sit outside which was important to us. We were initially concerned because our waiter wasn’t wearing a mask, but he eventually put one on. The food, as usual, was excellent.

Food was very tasty. Had the mushroom ravioli and my husband had the fresh grilled halibut. We were not rushed at all. Had 5pm reservation and it was very pleasant. Only thing I wish they had a better wine selection. I would go again soon. Making reservations through OpenTable helped.

Probably the most consistent great food and service in the Chattanooga area. Scallops, pork scallopini, and meatballs were absolutely wonderful! Soup was piping hot which we like and great salad. Bread with olive oil and the wine we’re also very good. David our waiter was outstanding. Highly recommend.

The food here is always amazing and we were not disappointed on our most recent visit. The dinner special that night was Lobster Risotto and the bar special was Champagne, a match made in heaven! The risotto was creamy and perfectly paired with the succulent and plentiful pieces of lobster in it. You must try!!!
