We have been coming to Primas for many years and the food has always been faultless. Sometimes in busier evenings the wait can be a little longer but it is always worth the wait! We went last Friday night. My fiancé had deep fried brie to start, then the calzone for the main course. I had a trio of bruschetta... More

Not over large inside and situated on Kirkgate the pedestrianised road leading up to the cathedral this is definitely the best pizzeria in Ripon. Very family friendly but also good for groups. The prices are reasonable, the food tasty and the staff accomodating and friendly. Just what you'd expect from an Italian restaurant.

Always packed to the rafters. Very extensive and authentic menu. The owner Franco is a legend. Wines for every purse and taste. A very old favourite of ours. Highly highly recommended. Booking a must. Please book. We get fed up with the constant trail of people keeping the door open being refused a table as booked up. Early birds brilliant... More

A local stalwart but somewhat overrated. Very reasonably priced pizza/pasta options which are nothing to get excited about. Competently cooked standard Italian fare but if you venture onto the specials options becomes very disappointing. Overall a very average experience and I would not rush back.

Very busy however is was a friday night so no change there! Service was a little slow we had to ask for our drinks order to be taken as no one came to the table, the staff were lovely - young and inexperienced though, we overheard one say "i'll make some thing up" to another member of staff when he...

Too busy although it was a Saturday night but we had to wait ages in a very small and crowded 'holding area'. Food was nice when it eventually came and the waitresses were very pleasant.

Here is another nice restaurant in Ripon, there are three in Ripon. The food and the service is good. The menu is fine and varied. Nice to visit. The early bird menu is fine too, although we chose from the main menu.

Fantastic food, huge portions and lovely owner. So many items on the menu I wanted to try, and all reasonably priced! I will definitely eat there again next time I am in the area!

This was a wonderful experience. All three of us had a pasta dish, each one of which was very different to the others but superb in its own way. Deserts are often second rate in restaurants like this, (why?) but certainly not here. Again, these were individually prepared and complimented an excellent meal wonderfully. Staff were friendly and attentive, and... More

Ate from the early bird special menu. The food was excellent and the service was very friendly even though the restaurant was very busy. Wished we lived near to Ripon as it would definitely be on our regular list!
