Overall good place to eat, although there is room for improvement on the coffee.
Wow! What a great little gem in the heart of Belsize Park. Service was great and food wasn’t outstanding. You’d be hard pressed to find better Italian food anywhere ... even in Italy. Can’t recommend highly enough
Tastes like really excellent Italian home cooking with lots of attractive options
Good Italian food in convenient Englands Lane location
Lovely food great service and very nicely decorated. I thought I was in Italy
Well done a great restaurant
Excellent, neighbourhood Italian restaurant. Lovely ambience and very good home cooking.
UNREAL!! Highly recommend everything was amazing, I couldn't believe it!
Cucina italiana Ottima con prodotti veramente di qualità. Lo consiglio vivamente a tutti i turisti a Londra che vogliono godersi un pezzettino di cucina nostrana.
Great food, but felt a bit rushed. No one went through the specials with us, and our starters arrived as if they had been waiting for us. In and out in under an hour--which could have been nice for a weeknight business meal, but wasn't really ideal for a Saturday date-night.
The fresh pasta is really outstanding. All the dishes we had (party of 5) were really good.
IL Primo is a real Italian restaurant in Belsize Park. I say real because so many places just do Pizza and Pasta which is only a small fraction of real Italian food, and IL Primo does the real thing. One of our party had lambs liver as a main, my starter was a fabulous Melanzane with cheese - and I could really taste the aubergine. Someone else had a seafood stew.
My one criticism about my meal was that my sea bass while beautifully presented was not as fresh as it might have been. Hence 4 stars rather than 5.
Excellent food! Best Italian in NW London. Lovely diverse menu. Service was great, very attentive without being overbearing. Wine list is pretty good although I'd like to see some organic wines.
Lovely restaurant in Belsize Park with wonderful food, ambiance and service. Small but very satisfying selection of dishes in true Italian cuisine. Presentation is also top-notch. I will come back soon!!!
Go there every few months and it never lets us down! Brilliant food
Excellent service and food. And that
they were able to accommodate so many tables with children is quite a feat.
Treasure of a restaurant - food is superb, staff is wonderful and accommodating. Highly recommend.
We had a really enjoyable time, service was good. Restaurant was busy and had a good atmosphere.
We found it expensive for the meal we had.
It was £45 per head for two courses
An intimate dinner for Valentine's dinner. The service was excellent, attentive without interfering. The food varied from excellent (two chosen starters of goats cheese and the scallops in particular to good (the grilled beef was a little disappointing), depending on the dish. We will certainly return.
Superb service, excellent food & great atmosphere.
Our new favourite restaurant
Main course of fish over cooked and v poor. Restaurant almost empty
We came here to take my boyfriend's parents for a nice dinner. We had already been a few months earlier for my birthday. The service was excellent, and the food was devine. Really traditional Italian good, fooled exquisitely.
This is our second time at Il Primo and we had another great meal. Third visit already booked!
Happy to find a restaurant that serves nicely presented fresh tasty food within walking distance of the north end of Camden. Perfect for eating prior to the Roundhouse for example.
The food was really delicious - and I know my Italian food from having lived in Italy. The service was friendly and attentive. I was very impressed.
Very lovely italian restaurant! A little gem in belsize with a v good atmosphere. Lovely italian staff
This was the second time we had eaten at Il Primo in 2 weeks. The food was as good as it was the first time.
There were 5 of us - we all ordered something different, with a few starts to share between us. Everybody thoroughly enjoyed their meal and we will all certainly be back again in the near future.
Lovely friendly restaurant with delicious food. We had such an enjoyable evening.
A superb local Italian in Hampstead. Wonderfully friendly staff and great cuisine.
Service & food was amazing
Excellent service. Food was delicious and big portions. Definitely coming back.
Excellent meal delicious food especially the pastas!!
Food and service really good but slightly on the expensive side for a local restaurant. Comfortable seating and nice decor but a bit lacking in atmosphere. Maybe Wednesday is a quiet night
Wonderful traditional Italian food , really good ingredients.
Perfect service , so friendly .
A real gem and so yummy
Eccellent Italian cuisine with a twist in a homely environment.
Excellent welcoming service.
A beautiful and cosy restaurant where we were made to feel very welcome by the friendly staff. The food was gorgeous: high quality ingredients with great flavours and textures. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for something special but not prententious.
A lovely place for dinner. The owner is very welcoming and the staff are friendly and efficient. The food is excellent, the only complaint being that the excellent duck was no longer on the menu!
Quality of food and service has declined
