The food is delicious without the frills. Great service, especially from our waiter Andreu! Adding this to one of my go-to restaurants here in South Florida.

Great reviews got us to try Café Prima. Had a Sunday Nite reservation. Service was excellent. The appetizer of cheeses and cold cuts came out cold and excellent. I had the lasagna and Deb had the veal scaloppini. Both were probably one the best Italian meals we ever experienced. Prices were very reasonable.

I don't know if the head chef/manager was off the day that I went, but my experience was very average compared to all the reviews and hype I have seen. First off, I'm Cuban by the way, the staff is all Latino, I did not see or hear one Italian person working there. That is a red flag to me.... More

The Ambiente ist really good. The waitress cares a lot about the clients. Maybe a little bit too much. The food was really good, tasteful and good presented. I also appreciate the fact that they had good fresh natural juices which is not obvious in every restaurant. The prices are really ok for the quality of their services.

Made a 7:00 PM reservation for a Saturday night ahead of time and were seated as soon as we arrived. Would highly recommend making a reservation as lots of people were waiting for tables at that time and they were at capacity. Food and service were great! Food came out super fast and portions were quite large. Did not have... More

My girlfriend and I went out to dinner at Prima Pasta on a Friday night. It was about a 20 minute wait so we took a seat at the bar and the bar tender was very friendly and genuine, the drinks were a bit pricey ($22 for 2 drinks), but they were good. The restaurant atmosphere is outstanding, it's a... More
