We visited the restaurant during peak hours at the VA, so we had to wait s bit to be sitted, we were also a large group of guts, but it was well worth it. Extremely friendly staff, as is common in Capetown. The food was served in time by this funny gentleman who kept us entertained every time he served... More

I think the food at Primi Piatti is great and the service even better. I'm gluten intolerant and the staff there has been nothing but accommodating to mine and my family's needs. In my opinion the food and service is really good value for money!!

Primi Piatti @ Camps Bay lives up to the chain's set standards of service and quality. Primi Piatti @ Camps Bay is no different, the staff were warm and service was quick. Will recommend this to friends!

This is a seafront venue with, most times, a good vibe and good service. We visit four or five times a year for a pre-show bite, but, sadly our recent visit may have been the last. The usually tasty bread was stale and my wife's hummous was incomplete, just chopped chickpeas, no olive oil, no garlic and the herb foccacia... More

Went to Primi for a meal before the theatre. Allowed almost 2 hours for dinner and had to beg for our food with 15 minutes to spare. The food was rather tasteless too. Had to get our drinks off the bar ourselves despite asking for them 4 times. And the place was not busy! So there was no excuse! Wont... More

The restaurant is in a great location and the cocktails were good. The pizza was standard but good. Good service and friendly staff. The bathrooms need to be upgraded.
