This is the second time I have visited Prima Pasta and had the pleasure of having Andreu as my server. The food was fantastic, especially the carpaccio, which I've had both times I've been there.

Although they were very busy and we hadn't booked they found us a nice table. The service was very friendly and the cooking accomplished. I had the pear pasta which was excellent. A nice restaurant with a family feel.

Loved the food, the staff was friendly - and they figured out it was my wife's birthday just from overhearing our conversation...and brought her some Italian cookies with a lit candle.

I gotta say I fell inlove with the restaurant. The service, food, atmosphere, everything was so great! I went with a couple of friends who recommended it, I'm glad we went. We were served with very little waiting time and our server andreu was extremely nice to us. The overall visit was just so pleasant and we'll definitely go back!
