I started going to Cafe Prima Pasta in 2008 and then actually lived right down the street from it for a few years and would go fairly frequently. I have never once been disappointed. The food is always delicious, the environment cozy and always well-staffed. It is always fairly crowded as well, which could be annoying to some, but I... More

We used the on-line booking system which showed there was availability. We received an email saying we would have confirmation shortly, and then nothing else. We turned up at the restaurant and received a shrug of the shoulders, clearly they don't use look at the on-line system as all bookings are done on paper. We waited 40 mins for a... More

This is one restaurant I'm sure glad I found. The Italian food is authentic and excellent as is the very cozy atmosphere. You definitely need reservations because it is popular because of it's good food and its reasonable prices. Service was very, very good and the dishes were prepared perfectly. Good wine list also. Would highly recommend this restaurant.

I would have preferred no home made pasta and maybe they would have been better. Mine were in the same time sticky and not cooked enough. The sauce was without any flavor. Only salt and pepper got...
