Lovely food, very authentic tasting.

Great selection of Italian cuisine. I went for a classic carbonara that was delicious. The portions are very generous, the garlic bread starters for example being pizza sized. You get complementary bread too to start. Service was fine, some staff seem new and little unsure, but it didn't I anyway... read more

The Food was fine but the service was slow and shoddy and this was on a night when they were not very busy and had a good staff to customer ratio. I had Funghi Ripieni to start which was good but was served on a slate - one of my pet hates, WE WANT PLATES! My Quatro Stagiono Pizza was... More

A nice pre dinner cocktail to start. The food here wasn't bad. The garlic bread & tomato pizza was lovely. My chocolate & venison ravioli was a bit salty but still tasted nice. We have been to nicer Italian's but still enjoyed it here. Worth a try.

13 of us visited this restaurant on Saturday evening and enjoyed a beautiful, delicious meal. The restaurant was perfect with a great atmosphere and friendly staff. The food was excellent and well presented My lasagna was the best I have ever tasted. I would not hesitate to eat here again when in Leeds and would recommend it.

Staying in a hotel close by instead of walking into Leeds City Centre we booked Primo. A great choice. Excellent decor and service and the food was super. A very good price and we were given in addition to our choices an extra sweet and liquor. Nothing was too much trouble. We'll go back next time we are in Leeds

We had our evening meal in this Italian restaurant. It has attractive, modern decor and very good food. Service was good. The price was fair but not cheap. Just under 50 pounds for 2 main courses, 2 desserts and a small glass of wine each. My husband noticed that some diners received a complimentary shot of limoncello; we didn't, perhaps... More
