Unfortunately, due to the California lockdown, the restaurant was closed. Which was fine but I was not notified about the reservations being cancelled so my wife and I walked into an empty restaurant on our anniversary dinner.
As always our experience was excellent. The food was great, ambiance was perfect, and service was above and beyond. Going here has never disappointed. It is a shame that they are shutting down in person dining again...thanks a lot Newsome. Once it returns, we will be back enjoying the food, service, and hopefully a little singing from the owner Lou!
Outdoor seating with light breeze
Infrared heaters close by
Entrees very hot on arrival
Server was rude and dismissive. Food and drinks took longer than usual. Prices are a bit high. Overall, it was the customer service that was lacking.
The best restaurant on the hill! Great staff and delicious entrees.
Fabulous, fresh food as always! You get a taste of Italy at Primos from our waiter, to the wine and the food!
Last minute change from 4 to 8 guests and they were very accommodating. Server was not very attentive to our needs.
Food is fantastic. fresh homemade pasta that everyone really enjoyed.
We had a lovely and tasty dinner with great service.
Excellent customer service, amazing food! Definitely going back!
Great food and excellent service.
Amazing on every level.
We dined outside on the lower partio earlier this week. The tables were well spaced, with comfortable chairs, and heaters were abundant. The food, drinks, and service were exemplary. I don't see how anything could have been any better. Thanks for a very nice evening.
Enjoyed the service and the food. Will come again soon!
The food was really great. I had the seafood pasta special and it was delish. My nephew had the veal parmigiana and it was not only beautiful but a big portion and he loved it. Wine list had lots of options at various price points. We sat on the patio next to Hawthorne Blvd., so it was a little noisy but that's really not their fault due to Covid restrictions. I would definitely go back!
my favorite local restaurant! The service is great, wine is great, food is awesome. Can't find a single reason why this restaurant won't deserve a five star from me :)
The lasagna is what I come for... the octopus starter is delicious. The chef makes amazing sauces, so flavorful. I love the outdoor experience during Covid- they’ve made it charming and perfect for date night.
Been a frequent diner at this fine Italian restaurant. Service and food always top notch. Thanks for another great meal, Lou and staff.
Primo has adapted to outdoor seating very well. Nice tables, comfortable indoor chairs, swift service despite all the stairs, plenty of spacing, and nice and quiet. And the food is as good as ever.
inside is better but Ok during Covid patio traffic noise
good date vibes and food.
Their outside dining right now for covid is so comfortable and welcoming! The food is so good and staff is kind.
Food and service were great as usual! Since we were outside, the ambiance was not like the wonderful ambiance inside. I hope the open up indoors soon.
The service was outstanding. Greeted with courteous verbiage by every service men we encountered. However, I was distracted by displeased guests, and loudly speaking guests in our purview.
Wonderful dining experience. Excellent menu selection.
The food was outstanding ... so many yummy choices on the menu. Loved the chopped salad an d lasagna was to die for ! The ricotta cheesecake was light and tasty . Great conversation with the owner . Looking forward when he can sing for the guests !!
Booked as an anniversary celebration. No recognition of that. Everything else fine other than that.
Let me tell you...this spot is 🔥🔥🔥. Outdoor dining space is very comfortable , the service was incredible, and the food was really genuinely fantastic. We ordered the special lamb chops, black truffle pasta, mussels, Caesar salad and calamari. 5 stars for all. Lamb chops were special. I will also say the the cocktails and wine list were top notch. Such a great experience, I would recommend to anyone and everyone.
It was a birthday we celebrate with Primo on a regular basis!
Everything was perfect!
Didn’t honor reservation time. Host volunteered “We need to kick some people out to get you seated.”
Expensive menu - for rather ordinary meal with limited selections. Food was good buy not exceptional.
Bill included “Covid” charge which I’d never seen before. I asked was was told it was for PPE. Should have told in advance. In any event, that’s not a way to get customers.
Everything was great. The food, service, ambiance, setting. The only thing I didn’t like is we have a reservation at 7:30 and weren’t seated until 8:15.
It was great!
The food is second to none in the South Bay! Little piece of Italy in our backyard. Always a great time at Lou’s.
Everything there is outstanding the service, the food wonderful.
Great family owned restaurant with wonderful food and very welcoming staff.
Good food and excellent, friendly service on a spacious patio. Definitely worth a visit.
Elegant cooking with a somewhat rustic menu(!). They have a nice patio area outside and inside is warm and classic. It appears they had live music preCOVID. Thoughtful wine list.
Loved it. Definitely coming back!
Amazing fine dining off the beaten path secluded quiet lovely even the chairs were comfy
This place is a hidden gem. The food was phenomenal. Our server was knowledgeable, the atmosphere was romantic. I can’t wait to dine here again.
