Great food relaxed atmosphere

We started with an appetizer of sausage with peppers and onions (homemade sausage was yummy) and a beautiful tasty loaf of cheesy warm bread. Next came our Caesar salad and, while the portion could have served five and the salad was fresh and crisp, it lacked a true Caesar garlicy anchovey bite to... read more

The bread here is incredible! Make sure you accept this offer!!! We also had a meatball to share which was delicious. Sea bass and pepperoni pizza... More

A friend suggested Prime Italian, and delighted to report that the experience was terrific! AMBIANCE Small, intimate space, with lots of natural light. Inviting, and good "energy". We sat at the bar for dinner, and had a very nice experience. The neighborhood gets a thumbs up, too. Somewhat off the beaten path, the "South of 5th" area was well received.... More

Came to a Prime Italian to celebrate after our friend's beach wedding. We ordered different appetizers and entrees. Everything was delicious. The 1LB meatball, amazing! Calamari was tasteful. But the best part....the bread! Wow. Make sure to dip in the marinara sauce

We were dissapointed from the aperitiv (aperol sprizz without prosecco) and the oily pound of cheese filled and overbaked bread. A starter of 10 slices of dry ham with walnut pieces covered with sugar - might have forgotten to cameralize the sugar ? The only highlight was the souce of the clamp fettuccini. But due to the massive portion of... More
