Eclectic, neighborhood Italian restaurant in the heart of Ooltewah. we take reservations for a portion of our tables, leaving much of the restaurant for guests to simply walk-in without a reservation. We take reservations by phone daily from the hours of 2:00 to 5:00 or anytime through the Ooltewah location page of www.primochattanooga.com.

Come and enjoy an authentic American-Italian inspired cuisine, complimented by a diverse selection of Italian and American wines and signature craft cocktails.

We look forward to serving you!

Our waitperson, Amber, was excellent...attentive but not bothersome. She explained the dinner items very well. Would definitely ask for her again on our next visit.

I love Il Primo, particularly the Ooltewah location. The service is fabulous (ask to be in Christy’s section!) and the food is exceptional. Get the arancini appetizer and a cocktail and enjoy!

Wonderful Italian restaurant in Cambridge Square. Our 5th time and have enjoyed every meal. Only negative it is pretty loud but seems like every eating place is that way now.

Had pork scallopini and it was excellent along with the spaghetti. Have also had the 4 cheese penne lately and would recommend both.

Most diners don't realize one of the Top 100 golf courses in the world is right next door.

We were seated close to another patron (within 6 ft) and right next to a heavily used doorway to the outside patio. Not exactly the setting I hoped for to celebrate our anniversary (which was never acknowledged although it was noted in the reservation). Our food was delicious! Fried ravioli, chicken piccata, cavatelli, tiramisu, strawberry shortcake. Kind of confounded about the dress of servers-one girl was in Levi jeans and a white ribbed tank top...not what I expect from a place that “requires” reservations. Our server couldn’t remember what side dish my husband ordered and was heavily pushing happy hour.

Excellent food and service! Pork scallopini with polenta was delicious; with such a large portion it made for great leftovers, too.

My son recommended Il Primo and it did not disappoint. We enjoyed everything, appetizers and main courses. It was our friends birthday and they brought out a nice piece of chocolate cake for the table to share. The service was over the top good and friendly and steered us in the right direction on everything. This is the place that we will always bring our out of town guests to.

Promptly seated, the host was friendly and attentive, cleaning a booth which we preferred and requested.

Server was friendly and prompt, giving us suggestions for choices. Asked for our UD. We never wanted for anything. Food came out in each course as expected

Food was hot and delicious.
