Still Good, Not as Great

I visted again recently and it's still as good as I remembered. This time I tried the parmesan garlic bread and although it's probably 17,000 caloried, it's worth it to me. So good. I had the eggplant parm and it was only good... I don't know if it was a fluke but it was way way more salty than... read more

Expensive so get ready to spend some money. Drinks and sides were good. The outside service was really Good amount of outside tables which is nice weather permitting. Food was ok. We ordered 2 main fish dishes (red snapper and sea bass) and both missed the mark with my wife and I.

Ate here recently during a weekend girls trip. The food was ok - not sure the experience matched the price. The salad are huge portions and able to share. I ordered the Kobe Meatball and it was salty My friend ordered the angle hair and it was delicious. The desert of warm apple was so good.

Best food we have ever tasted! Wish we could eat here every night! Our waiter was brilliant! Informative and attentive but certainly didn't over do it! Speed of the service was also spot on. 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 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 it....our main course was the veal chop...
