Best dinner experience

Delicious food, amazing ambiance and great service! The owner/chef sat with us while we ate. The homemade gnocchi was the best we ever tasted! We can't wait to go back to Lenox again to have another memorable meal at Prime Italian.

Where to start with this one... I guess the food is the most obvious choice: I posted a pic of the shrimp dish I had on that particular evening. Not only was it plated beautifully, but it was even more delicious than this review could describe. Wine pairing recommended by my server was perfect. My husband who is always ordering... More

Food was great, the service exceptional, and the cracked glass bar and the private booths are a great touch....what more is to be said. My wife and I have ended up at prime several nights for late night after Tanglewood. On this particular night we decided to have dinner before the show and sat outside under the tent on the... More

Great food, service and ambience. We enjoyed dinner so much we came back next morning for brunch! The menu was eclectic; Italian, steak, fish- something for everyone. The waitress was very accommodating when we asked to substitute items on the menu.

With so many fine restaurants in Lenox, it is hard to find any place that disappoints. We had great steak tips, crab tower and Ok spinach salad. Mr. Gallo, the host, was enthusiastic and the new Brit Bartender was great and friendly. As we were hoping for a much better than the Tanglewood box dinners, we asked and were assured... More

This is a treat. The steak is exceptional! The service is superior and the ambience is rather private and lovely. It is not terribly noisey as the private booth areas are romantic. You don't have to order steak but I would again and again. The menu includes fish and veal as well as some pasta dishes.

I should have written a review after our first meal at Prime last December. Unfortunately, the flu and several feet of snow took over my winter! In any case, our most recent visit was every bit as marvelous as the first. My husband and I recently took my parents to Tanglewood, and we wanted to eat someplace special afterward. Based... More

Went to Prime tonight based off Trip Advisor suggestions. Was pleased with not only the service (Josh was great) but the food was fantastic. To have home made pasta at such a small restaurant was such a pleasant surprise. Tony was very hospitable and willing to make our visit as pleasant as possible which wasn't hard to do. Would definately... More
