The restaurant is beautiful and the service was very good. We had the ribeye special which was perfectly cooked. We also had the Cacio Peppe pasta and it was soupy and lacked flavor. Very disappointing. We would come back for the ambiance, cocktails and steak. Wish the pasta was better!

This was an anniversary dinner with my kids and grandkids. Everything was top notch; service, food ambiance. The waiter was very attentive and made sure my young granddaughter’s were taken care of and had everything they needed. Our entree’s were varied; steak, veal and seafood, and everything was well cooked and tasty. I will definitely return and not wait for a special occasion.

We have not been to Primi since just before the lockdown so it was time to try it again. So easy to make a reservation on Open Table! Our Primi Old Fashioneds were outstanding, complete with the maple smoke display upon serving. The oysters with bourbon butter and bacon were melt in your mouth delicious and the burrata and pancetta pizza was delicious. Our entrees were lovely Beef Wellington done Medium as requested. Dessert tiramisu was a slightly frozen version but delicious nonetheless. Our server was gracious and very attentive. The only complaint was the volume. It was fully booked upstairs and some patrons were speaking at full volume which caused other people to increase their volume with the end result being that we could barely carry on a conversation at our table. Once a few tables left the problem was alleviated. One other suggestion would be to ask about the mobility of the diners when they make a reservation. The upper dining room had several very elderly and frail people dining and watching them tackling the stairs was a little stressful and just an accident waiting to happen. Overall it was a lovely dinner and we will be back!

We enjoyed a lovely dinner with three generations of friends. We’d made an outdoor reservation but the weather was bad; the staff couldn’t have been nicer about relocating us. By the end of the evening, the noise level got to be a little much. And given the prices, including even small portion side dishes would be a nice gesture.

Our overall experience was favorable. We both enjoyed ourselves. The ambiance was very nice, dim, and quiet. The decor was nice as well. The only complaint, and I fully expected it before going, was the cost. $230 for two, and no desert. Couple apps, two dinners, I got the Filet Mignon, and my wife got the Chicken Francese- It was extremely salty, and my wife found it to be hard to eat. She didn’t want to send it back, because I had made a comment when we got there, about how she complains a lot! Lol! So she didn’t want to complain. Anyway, I tried it, and I like salt, it made me take a quick drink! My filet was good, cooked medium! I enjoyed it, and ate it all. I had a few beverages, my wife had one.

Our server was good, well spoken, friendly, and did a great job overall.

Would I go back, possibly, I don’t think I would go out of my way, but I wouldnt say no, if it was an option.

We ordered the meatballs and the calamari for appetizers and they were phenomenal and a meal in themselves. My wife had the seared tuna and I had a sirloin steak with asparagus and Brussel sprouts. The entrees were also phenomenal! For drinks I was drinking the Primi Old fashioned. It had a unique smokey taste and my wife had the spicy watermelon Margherita which was delicious. Our waitress, Christine was very nice and professional. Overall, we will be back and would highly recommend to friends.

Highly recommend. We came to Primi for the first time to celebrate our wedding Aniversary, and the service was amazing and the food was impeccable. The staff recognized it was our Anniversary without us even mentioning it, which has never happened before at a restaurant despite each year leaving notes on opentable when booking a reservation that there is a special occassion to be celebrated. We were provided with 2 drinks on the house and sat at a booth table that was quiet and felt romatic. We will be back many times, especially for our next wedding anniversary!

Extremely disappointed with the service. During the entire meal the staff was cleaning up our table while we were still eating. At one point the staff tried to remove my full plate of food while reaching over my plate. Our waiter did not know the wines although we drank 3 bottles it was not by any suggestions and when asked what is suggested with specific foods his answer was a shrug. The best part of the experience was the hostess she was great! The appetizers were excellent we had the Burrata and the grilled octopus both of which were amazing. Our main course was less than par. Would not recommend.

We had a wonderful garden table with lovely lighting and a huge stone fireplace all lit up. The plants and music blocked the noisy traffic nearby. The food was very enjoyable, however the pizza appetizer was really more like a pizzeria-quality. It would fit the ambiance and menu better as a flatbread pizza or pizzetta with, say brie and strawberries!
Overall we will return!
